I was lucky enough to work with Amber at the recent Lululemon Retreat. It was like she held up a mirror and made me aware of the self talk and the habitual behaviours I was engaging in that were holding me back. It gave me the green light to accept things that I’d spent so long fighting or criticising myself for. I was spending so much time worrying about the past or future and was not engaging in the present!
I always thought I was not the “type of person” who does meditation. How wrong I was! We are ALL the type of people who NEED meditation. But for me it was more than realising this, it was giving myself the permission that I am worthy of taking the time to meditate and meditation is just as important as dedicating time to answering emails or giving to clients. When I fill my own cup up I have more to give to everyone around me.
Since working with Amber I am a better businessman, husband and friend. What Amber taught me at the retreat was life changing. Not because she tried to improve me but rather taught me to accept myself and for me that was a life changing experience.
