Transformational Success Story!
October 2012Welcome to our Transformational Success Story where I personally interview one of our very successful clients, Laura Fowler. Laura has an art business called Personal Art, which turns your photos into ART. She transforms your photos into works of art through a variety of photo personalisation styles - from comic strips, caricatures, personalised books, graffiti, stencil art, avatars and many more. Laura also enjoys going to the gym, painting, drawing and photography.
How was life prior to your transformation?
Prior to the transformation, I had never loved myself and never considered myself worthy of anything or anyone. I found intimacy difficult sometimes, and never expected much from relationships, often sabotaging good relationships and keeping bad ones. I found it hard to finish things and often lost focus. I found alpha males hard to deal with and any kind of confrontation difficult, resulting in that I would often ‘settle’ rather than saying or doing what I think or wanted. Also people around me had started to realise how little I thought of myself, and when someone you hardly know turns around to you and says “You should love yourself more” you know you have to change.
You have made significant changes in your life Laura, can you tell us about your transformation.
I saw a difference in myself after my first session, but actually didn’t realise the difference had started then until probably my third session. I realised I was more positive, happier, motivated and at peace with myself. I had just gone through a series of bad events; what should have been a fatal car accident, a seizure and problems with a business partner. NLP helped me deal with these, and be more focused on my new art business and the future. I realised that if I put my mind to something I could do anything, as long as I stayed positive and listened to my instinct. I recently read a book called The Alchemist and there was a quote in there which I really resonated with “And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.
I can definitely say that I actually love who I am. I now realise that I am a beautiful person inside and out. I’m a talented artist and I have big ideas and the get up and go to carry them out and finish them. I have a great group of friends, spanning many countries across the world, and these people are a reflection of me, so I know if they are great then so am I. I keep a positive outlook on life and being so enthusiastic and passionate about my new business only good has happened. I am up to 6 orders in just 1.5 weeks, I have secured a market spot at Rose St Market and am certainly on my way to securing other markets as coincidently I have met the organisers - amazing what the universe conspires to do :) I will be eternally grateful to Vesna for helping me, she really made me open my eyes and see the world and myself for how it really is. Life isn’t distorted anymore, it’s like the fog has lifted.
What were the biggest challenges you needed to overcome to get to where you are now?
I think the number one challenge was to love myself and realise that I am worthy. Once that was corrected everything else kind of followed. Also realising that I am in control of everything I do and not other people. And that not being able to control everything such as other people is ok. I haven’t felt out of control since I had the NLP sessions.
How has transforming your thinking impacted on your success?
My thinking pattern has changed a lot, gone are the negative thoughts and the worries. Previously I worried about almost everything but now that I realise that I only need control what I do, and if someone does something I don’t think is acceptable I can voice my opinion and stand up for myself. I’m just happier and more chilled out and care free. I’m no longer a victim of my past.
What tips would you give to others who are thinking about improving their life in similar ways?
Go for it, Vesna is awesome, you have nothing to lose. I tried psychologists and reiki, but with neither can you pinpoint specific issues and address them. NLP can.
How would you sum up your transformation?
Best thing I ever did. A truly life changing experience and a discovery of who I really was.
