Welcome to our Transformational Success Story where I personally interview one of our very successful clients, Robert Fernandez. Robert is a devoted father of 3 who likes to teach them everything he knows. He runs an IT consulting business, Solution Centric, and also enjoys soccer, fishing and playing guitar.
How was life prior to your transformation?
The break-up of my 10 year marriage gave me an immense sense of loss and helplessness. I felt as if the sign posts I once put on my road had been taken away. Deep down inside I knew this wasn’t me and I had to put up new sign posts to continue my life’s journey.
You have made significant changes in your life Robert, can you tell us about your transformation journey?
I started to look at myself from the outside and the world around me. I slowly started to get my confidence back. The sense of loss I experienced turned into an opportunity for personal growth. I began thinking and dreaming again, as a result, I started to create new sign posts along the way. I’m enjoying the journey…
What were the biggest challenges you needed to overcome to get to where you are now?
Biggest challenge was learning to live alone and doing things without the kids and not feel selfish about it.
To what extent has working with Qt helped you to transform your life and manage your emotions for success?
I learnt new tools and developed new skills to make everyday a great day, and expect tomorrow to be an even better day! Being able to create my life and my day the way I want it to be. After a couple of sessions with Qt, I felt the change, and people around me started to notice the change in me – the transformation. In the case of unexpected events, I now think about what my contributions to such events have been so I learn from it. The major emotions I now feel are of having a vision and somewhere to strive for. When I see the kids now, we all make the most of that time, it’s great to hear “Dad, you’re the best!...”. It’s a life changing experience and that is what I needed.
How has transforming your thinking impacted on your success? Has the change been a lasting one?
Qt showed me how to think my way through life the way I want life to be. My thinking now is always to improve things. I am aware of my thoughts on a daily basis and correcting them to my desired outcomes. Yes, the change has been a lasting one because I do that on a consistent basis. The way I was feeling a year ago to the way I feel now – it is a tenfold difference because I now make everything around me to suit my lifestyle. It is a continuous process. I now have the power to enjoy everything in life because I know how to change it to suit me.
What tips would you give to others thinking about improving their life?
You must want to change and improve yourself and have an open mind. Learning the theory is easy, the hardest part is taking action. Be prepared to do things that are out of your comfort zone, it the only way to make changes. Once you action the theory, then it magically gets easier to a point where you start to enjoy it.
How would you sum up your transformation?
