Olivia’s Personal Story
A more personal reflection from Olivia – She will tell you personally how her clients, students, and mentors made her what she is today…
My Defining Moment: From Soul Searching to Soul Singing
That defining moment in my life happened in late 2008. By the end of that year, I was celebrating the completion of my Master’s Degree in London, UK—a big dream of mine coming true—after many aspiring years of deeply desiring it, enjoying the fruits of my success in being a Master Teacher.
So, why was I trapped in an inner emptiness, feeling uneasy and unclear, and experiencing a sense of disconnection from the inside out? Why was I struggling to enjoy my successful language teaching career with my head and heart surrounded by confusion, concerns, and worries about the years to come?
I felt I didn’t know what I wanted, nor did I desire to work in a 9 to 5 job anymore, which made me feel even more overwhelmed and frustrated. I was unbalanced, asking myself, “Why am I here? Why do I feel so empty while I have such success?” The gap between my outer success experience and the inner world of myself was HUGE.
Something was missing, and I have now discovered what that something was—it was me and my soul! I was unawakened, living my life unconsciously, without purpose. Although in many respects I had been very successful, I was completely lost inside. My authentic self was not only largely absent, but also starving and screaming to be heard in my daily life. Because I was doing what I thought I was supposed to do, I was getting and achieving a lot, but was still not as fulfilled as I desired to be. The authentic me was struggling.
So what happened?
I had my deepest wake-up calling – spiritual awakening – which led me to go through a self-discovery stage in my life, what I call my “soul searching” journey. During this journey, I realized that the inner emptiness I was feeling was my soul screaming out in divine discontent, saying to me, “You have a unique purpose to follow. Discover your true, authentic self, and follow your biggest dreams, deepest desires, and authentic aspirations. Only do what you passionately love and what makes you feel purposeful, meaningful, and fulfilled.”
I went through three years of totally immersion in self-growth and entrepreneurship and I learned to listen carefully to my inner voice—my authentic self—and act on it despite my fears, concerns, and anxieties. I began to pay close attention to who I truly wanted to become, what I really wanted to do, and what I authentically wanted to create in my life.
“I started with nothing but a dream”
In early 2009 I discovered personal development and I started with nothing but a dream. It was definitely a turning point in my professional and personal life. I immersed myself deeply into self-growth, and with the support of my precious husband, I was able to invest my time, money, and energy into as many books, courses, home study programs as I could. During that time, I learned and implemented success secrets, universal laws, and spiritual principles from the very best transformational teachers and legendary thought leaders, including Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, T Harv Eker, to name a few.
By the end of that year I discovered professional coaching and I was over the moon. I realized that I had been teaching, training, mentoring, and (informally) coaching students, professionals, family, and friends for so many years, but I didn’t know about coaching as a professional career. I happily exclaimed to myself, “Oh my goodness! There is a profession for my passion, my purpose. I can’t believe it!” It was everything I wanted to do… to help others succeed in life by following their dreams, passion, and purpose, and create a life they love.
At that moment I made a commitment to immerse myself in everything that had to do with professional coaching and building a successful, thriving business. So again, I read every book on coaching, business, marketing, and mindset I could get my hands on. I went to every seminar, workshop, and course that was available.
Just to give you an idea of my commitment, in 2010 alone with the Coaching Academy (The UK’s leading coaching training company and the largest in Europe), I attended 19 full training days for two diplomas: Personal Performance Coaching and Corporate and Executive Coaching, as well as Advanced Accelerate Days for CPD (Continuing Professional Development). I also went to T Harv Eker’s three-day Millionaire Mind Intensive, Clinton Swaine’s three-day Play to Win Seminar, Chris Howard’s Breakthrough to Success Seminar, Brian Tracy’s Business Seminar, and many other NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Business, and Marketing workshops, conferences, and seminars.
“I became who I dreamed of being”
I essentially decided to become an expert in personal transformation and business growth, and I eventually became a specialist in authentic business and marketing success.
During this self-discovery process—my soul-searching journey—and after reading and learning from hundreds of life-changing books, including audio books and online training courses, I had an epiphany! The thing I enjoy MOST and I am TRULY passionate about is actually the authentic business and marketing success secrets, universal laws, and spiritual principles that help you transform your inner wisdom into your outer wealth. In other words, I realized my passion was to help people marry the inner and outer game of authentic abundance so they can have head and heart in holistic harmony and eventually achieve authentic abundance, success, and freedom from the inside out.
I was blessed to transition from a successful 10-year language teaching career to building a thriving business I love while being authentic and aligned with my passion and purpose. I became who I dreamed of being – an enlightened C.A.S.T.L.E. (Coach, Author, Speaker, Trainer, Leader, and Expert) and started sharing my message to other enlightened entrepreneurs (and aspiring ones!) around the world.
Trusting, Transforming, and Truly Thriving
Since then, I have made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other passionate professionals – authentic authorities: (C.A.S.T.L.E.) – succeed in sharing their message out into the world in a big, bold, and positive way so they can build a thriving, sustainable, and profitable business they love faster, better, and with much more freedom, fulfillment, and fun. That’s when I was finally drawn to become a heart-centered, make-a-difference-based enlightened entrepreneur and let that BIG business vision, dream, and mission I have carried inside me—in my head, heart, and soul—for such a long time to come out. Walking my talk, I show my students and clients how to create business breakthroughs to experience authentic abundance, success, and freedom from the inside out.
I now feel incredibly blessed to have discovered my purpose. I am living my passion, following my heart, doing what I love, and my soul is singing again. It is such a blessing and joy to build and grow my own authentic business, and to inspire, empower, and enlighten others to discover their blessing, passion, and purpose. I feel honored to help people bring to being their best selves—their authentic selves—and help these passionate professionals create the business and life they’ve always dreamed of.
