What was it like growing up?
She grew up in Norway. She thought she had a good life, but there was a lot of things going on in her family dynamic, which later resurfaced and manifested itself in disempowering ways. Nevertheless, she was very independent early on and did whatever she wanted to do.
You mentioned some family tension, what do you mean by that?
Her parents never had a loving relationship. Before she was born her mom had a lover. Her dad knew about it, it was sort of an arrangement, resulting in a lot of tension and shame. It was a very disempowering environment. She thinks that maybe that was what prompted her to be independent early on and wanted to follow her own footsteps.
Did someone guide you through the process of realization?
Yes. She was suffering from an autoimmune disease. After she pushed herself so hard that she collapsed, it was a matter of figuring out what to do with her life. She had a business to run and children to take care of. Later she got so sick that she couldn’t go to work, and had to give up the job, not knowing what to do next. Her health was completely deteriorated, so one thing was certain, she had to get better first before she could start thinking about my professional life.
How did you heal yourself?
After quitting the job, she started working with a coach. During the period of about 2 years, she exhausted all her options. She visited all kinds of doctors and specialists, changing her lifestyle and eating habits. During that time, she started reading a lot of personal development and empowerment books and came up with the idea that she was going to heal herself, and in a matter of two weeks, she was back up on her feet.
What did you do after you collapsed?
She went to a holistic doctor shortly afterward. They took 12 blood tests, 9 out of which were not good. The first thing she did was changing her diet, while still running her company and taking care of kids, which didn’t last long and she got worse again. She went several years without eating sugar, even avoiding fruits, but it was still not enough.
After the realization that you have healed yourself, did everything changed after that or it was a process of reorganization your life in a new way?
Because of the health, it was hard for her to grow her business despite several successful businesses in the past. She had made $11K in the year prior to that. In the beginning, she set the goal and told herself that she can do this no matter what. She manifested in her mind that she is going to make $20000 in a month. Because of that firm resolve, she was later able to make $24K in about 3 days. That was the leap she was able to achieve once she tuned into using her mind in a different way.
If someone is listening to this, what advice would you give them if they still feel stuck?
The first thing you can do is to start reading and learning about it. It’s one thing to read and learn about something and other things to embody the knowledge. A lot of people have intellectual knowledge but they don’t really believe in it, which is not going to help. It’s a matter of applying that information to create a shift in your life. If you still feel stuck, reach out to someone who can guide you along the way. She acknowledges that she didn’t get where she is today without the help of her coach and others.
What advice would you give someone who is just starting his business?
You might think what you are up against but you don’t. Don’t be shy to ask for help. The biggest mistake people make is not realizing that everyone is different. What works for some may not work for others. The biggest obstacle you are going to face is your mindset. Especially if you are coming out of a corporate, it’s a very different thing to be selling your own services. It brings up all different kinds of insecurities that you didn’t even know you had. But don’t give up just because of that as you can do anything you put your mind into.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
She read the book called The Power of your Subconscious Mind. That was when she realized how powerful we really are. If you don’t believe how the subconscious mind truly runs your life, read that book and it will open your eyes.
What do you remember about that book? What was that little nugget of wisdom?
Through our subconscious mind, we attract and create everything. We don’t know what’s in our subconscious mind but whatever has been programmed there must become reality. If you truly believe in something, it must happen. Working on your subconscious beliefs is very crucial. The outcomes you achieve are going to be the reflection of what lies in your subconscious mind and so if you can reprogram your subconscious mind you can completely change your life.
