Get ready to be inspired – “WOZ” shows you how!
In a time and culture marked by rapid change, an overload of information and where divisiveness and incivility seem to be the norm, it can be challenging to bring people together to work towards a common cause.
I’m passionate about helping others finding ways to improve and change stress and worries to become solution focussed. When you wonder if anything will go right, it seems impossible to create change and get on with your life. There are methods you can use to come out from negative thinking habits and become stronger and grow from your difficult situations.
You deserve happiness and a strength that will help you be your best. You will find out how worries develop and how you can change once these thoughts enter your mind.
Eventually, I realized that I could lie around and do nothing or I could make something better out of what I had been told. I had to stop using MY WISHBONE and get a BACKBONE!
I didn’t allow myself to be swallowed up with hate, blame, self-pity and misery. I decided to look at life with stronger focus and intent. I decided to help others going through life problems.
I remembered I used to be happy and enthusiastic about life and I put myself through courses, read articles, studied videos, and researched. Most importantly, I surrounded myself with outstanding friends and business associates. I started a support group for families with children who were affected by HIV/AIDS.
Some years later, I was honored to receive the Queen Elizabeth Gold and Diamond Jubilee medals.
Now, I travel and speak at international events. I share what I have learned and want to bring motivation and inspiration to others.
