Welcome to our Transformational Success Story where I personally interview one of our very successful clients, Rosie. Recently 27, Gemini, Yogi, Retailer, Student and Qt advocate. I have worked for the same Brand in the Fashion Retail industry for going on 8 years. It’s a national role, and very challenging, and I have always enjoyed it! My work is my motivation, yoga is my consolation, and my friendships and relationships are my inspiration.
How was life prior to your transformation?
Before I came to Vesna, life was becoming quite difficult. I really wasn’t coping with the stress of my work life and I was trying to move past the hurt of my last relationship. Looking back now, I was a bit of an unstable, emotional wreck. I was exhausted from keeping myself together. I overthought the little things and didn’t appreciate the big things, and to me the notion of happiness was unreachable. And I had tried! I’m quite a proactive person in my everyday life and I was working hard to make myself happy and let go but I just couldn’t manage it, which was even more frustrating.
You have made significant changes in your life Rosie, please tell us about your transformation.
I had several goals, things that I had identified I wanted to change when beginning my transformation. The biggest thing for me was feeling at ease with myself. It’s a very uncomfortable feeling not to, because you can’t escape yourself and when you’re at odds with your mind, you really have nowhere to go. The most valuable thing I learned through the process was self-appreciation. To recognise and value yourself and your achievements – this didn’t come naturally to me, but is now a habit I will maintain for life – as it really is the key to my happiness these days. It’s very easy to get busy, or keep busy, and forget to stop and reflect on what you’ve done. Usually it’s easier to jump to the next thing on the list! And as we all know, the list never ends.
What were the biggest challenges you needed to overcome to get to where you are now?
Ultimately, self-doubt was the hardest hurdle. Once you get out of negative mental processes and convert these to more positive ones, doors open. I’m still reeling at just how powerful the practice of positive thought, intention and visualisation is. It’s simple self-belief. I just can’t believe how your mind can so quickly turn from your worst enemy to your greatest asset – the challenge is learning to channel this force in the right direction.
To what extent has working with Qt helped you to get over past relationships and improve your confidence and success?
I’m in a really positive place. In general everyday terms, I’m looking forward to life instead of struggling through it. I’m recognising just what I can achieve and getting excited and motivated by its possibilities and my own potential. Mentally, it’s a nice place to be. Personally, I’ve accepted and forgiven all the past hurt, and have let this all go. To have an unconscious mind free of the burden of any past negativity is a gift in itself – but more importantly, I now have room for a new relationship. Work-wise, I have achieved all I set out to and more, and my relationship with work is healthier. Balance is key!
Having now made this change, what do you now enjoy most about life?
I’m enjoying life in general! And I will do for the rest of my life. Looking forward to life is a really powerful thing, I have new lenses and I appreciate everything I have AND everything that’s yet to come!
How would you sum up your transformation?
Invest in yourself – it’s worth it. Thanks again so much for all your support Vesna. The techniques you’ve taught me have really changed my life!
