When it all started... from Suffering to Freedom!

If you always dreamed to create a business but the fear of the unknown, the fear of the gigantic task ahead of you is stopping you, well… it is normal because you have never experienced it before.

When the mind doesn’t know, it freaks out!

It was my story for a long time, and I had to go through a big scary wake up call to get me out of my ‘comfort zone’.

For a very long time I was contemplating the incredible idea to create something on my own. I was too scared, and I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. I loved plants, I loved horticulture, I studied psychology, I worked in entertainment (hotels and camping), I love travelling… I really couldn’t find the “THING”.

In a cool end of summer day of 2017, everything changed…

I was working on an orchard in NZ. I enjoyed my work, but I wasn’t fulfilled. Something was missing, but I couldn’t find the glue that would show the big picture. Then life decided to give me a little boost. After a health checkup, my doctor announced me that I had abnormal cells and they needed to do a biopsy to check if it was cancerous or not.

That was IT. That was enough to shake me so hard that suddenly my priorities turned upside down.

I decided to take a few days off work, while waiting for the results. I remember feeling so scared and paralyzed, I couldn’t see any solutions. For some reason I saw myself dead in 3 years.

In our garden, we have a little corner with a big tree giving shade and breeze in hot summer. I installed a hammock just underneath. This is where I was spending my afternoons. On the 3rd day, in my hammock, gently rocked by the cool air, my mind brought me back to a very early childhood memory. I was 4 or 5. I was looking at people and smiling at them. I was happy, bubbly and generally a happy child. The simplicity to be happy hit me hard. I completely lost connection with this part of me. I became so angry, frustrated, sad, guilty of everything… that I couldn’t reconnect to this little girl anymore.

I came out of my daydream, and this was my AHHA MOMENT.




The following months after my results (which showed the stage just below the cancer stage 1), I decided to change my diet, to start daily meditating and learn something to start a business. This is when I had in big written “massage” in my head. This is how I started my own business. Then progressively, I learned new skills, I did more than 15 courses in 7 years and here I am 7 years later, with my business, so much happier, and balanced in my life.

The reason I am telling you this story is because the past should not define who you want to become or what you want to do.
And this is where the core problem is. We unconsciously repeat what we already know, and we barely try something new because it is out of our comfort zone.

So, if you have a business idea but you are scared, knows that it is only your mind that is preventing you to do something it thinks is ‘dangerous’. Your mind is like a mother trying to convince her son to not travel abroad because she never went anywhere than her own town. But the son heard so many incredible traveler stories that he will leave even though his mom is against it.

If you have an idea, today take 1 action. A small action, something that you can do today to start your business. It can be buying a notebook to write down all your ideas. Or it can be creating a space at home for your business.

Any small steps bring you closer to your ultimate goal: Be happy in anything you do.
