In my senior year of high school, I joined my local teen clinic’s peer education team thinking it was a great way to help out my peers and give back to the community. I had no idea how much it would change my life!
The transformation started off slow. Within the first few weeks I learned about heart hugs and greeted all my friends with heart hugs. A few months passed and I was sneaking my friends around the library to teach them about kinesiology which I had just learned at teen clinic. It’s this cool thing that demonstrates the effect of negative and positive influences on our body and how to protect ourselves from the negative. The name Jack Canfield was bouncing around in my head as he was the one who taught my mentor about the power of heart hugging and kinesiology.
During my time at the teen clinic Trish mentioned several times the idea that a team that would go to Arizona, train with Jack, discover the magic his work had to offer and come back to help her bring the success principles work to young people. In my mind it seemed a job too big for a party too small.
In August 2014 on the plane ride to Scottsdale Arizona with a team of 7 young people on the way to Jack’s Breakthrough to Success (BTS) event, I realized I had been wrong.
Every day of our trip was just as enchanting as the last. BTS taught me alot!
The support at BTS was unlike any I've ever had. Jack had created an environment that made it easy for me to trust everyone in that room and know they were there to help me become the woman I was meant to become. And likewise I was able to be anything they needed me to be to help them grow.
The day I walked into the teen clinic was the best decision I ever made. I am changed forever by what Trish and Jack taught me. Now, with the help of BTS, I have taken the first few steps toward obtaining my dream job as a makeup artist. I have acquired my cosmetology license, worked as a beauty advisor, been published in magazines and have been able to travel with my work from Florida to New York City. In early 2016 I will be heading cross country to attend school in Los Angeles for the next big step. And in the meantime, in addition to helping Trish with her vision, I am helping to spread this important work to the people I meet along my own journey.
Set a goal that is big enough so that in the process of achieving it, you will become someone worth becoming!
