Before I came across this understanding of the human mind, I would have been devasted and embarrassed by this lack of interest, even annoyed, given the amount of work by the Chamber staff and the discounted fees. Days, even weeks would have passed, with me harbouring destructive thinking. My children would ask what’s wrong with you, Mum, and I would tell them, oh, nothing just something at work, but they would miss my enthusiastic spirit around the house.
Nowadays, my response is so different. I can honestly say that I read the e-mail, and thought, that’s such a shame. That was it, except for a moment of sadness for everyone’s effort to create the program. I didn’t give it a second thought, and not because I didn’t care, quite the opposite. Insight into the mind’s power to create experience allows me to live more freely and not create drama inside my head, which steals valuable time.
The imagination can give us a run around, lots of stories like people don’t see the value or respect my work, all completely arbitrary. Fortunately, I remained neutral, connected to my innate resilience. Before long, I created another on-line program coaching thirty-three young people to understand that their well-being is built into the human psychological system. Before my realisations, that wouldn’t have been possible, and thirty-three young souls would have gone untouched, as I picked myself up.
