Mindvalley is the leading self-development organization in the world. I recently attended a remarkable University Immersion – a University of a different kind. It was a month immersion of incredible global speakers speaking on a broad spectrum of topics relating to life – everything that we were not taught in school, namely entrepreneurship, finance, relationships, purpose, writing, speaking, coaching, wellness, sexuality and parenting, to name just some. It was about LIFE, as we know and live it – but the aspects of life we seldom talk about. A thousand participants came from all over the world – 53 different countries, with their families to live in Pula, Croatia for a month to immerse themselves in the wisdom of leading global thought leaders.
My husband and I had previously attended Mindvalley University in Tallinn, Estonia, the previous year. It was an extraordinary experience and opened my eyes to a different lens on the world. This year, in Croatia, my journey deepened and came full circle to a real understanding and clarity of my purpose & vision.
I realized that I had a profound and powerful message.
And I realized I was about to step into a new journey of courage. The courage to speak my truth. The courage to help others unlock their truth, their shifting identity and purpose. I had a story to tell. A story worth telling.
Between Tallinn and Pula, I had evolved. Now After two Mindvalley Universities and so many global thought leaders, I was finally ready to step into a new role, a new chapter of my life, not in the pages of a book but on the stage. Exposed. Not hiding behind words. Being utterly visible. For so long I had had a fear of not being enough, I wasn’t ‘READY’ yet to speak! When was I ever going to be ‘ready’? Paralysis of course after course was an escape from just starting.
Deep down in my intuitive self I know I have a powerful message to share. And so THIS diploma, in the last part of 2019, is finally crafted around speaking. I told my lecturer what I wanted to talk about. She was ignited. I could see it in her eyes. She hugged me warmly when the lecture ended. She said she would help grow me. And so I stepped into courage. I was home in my land and I was home in my purpose.
