Once you identity a problem, you can fix it, but if you can’t see it, you can’t fix it. George helped me identify issues in my life that were holding me back but were invisible to me.  For instance, I was at a shareholder meeting that consisted of six others, all men. A very difficult topic came up which I had strong feelings about. When one of them disagreed with me, I felt attacked, got defensive and I shut down. After the meeting, I thought about what had happened. I realized that what triggered me and made me shutdown was some ‘bad girl’ thinking that probably started when I was young from an overbearing father. Just seeing how I acted came from old, old thinking and it freed me. Those disagreeing were not attacking me, they were unhappy about the topic.  It was not me they were disapproving of. The next morning, I met with one of  the men who have voiced disapproval and talked to him easily and openly about the issue without being defensive. I didn’t have any baggage, I spoke freely, and we had a great discussion. It was really fabulous, that freedom. 

I don’t think I could articulate any of this before I started talking to George. Learning to see the invisible is huge!  Since I began working with George. I’ve become much less defensive, more open and even with people. .My anxiety is less.  Now I can be more strategic.

Since I have been working with George, my life has changed radically. I feel more centered and grounded and now have the tools  and practices to more easily recognize my stresses and take the steps to increase my productivity. When I am more productive I am also more able to exercise and do self-care. Our work has impacted my feelings, thoughts, work, as well as my interactions with others. And I sleep better, which contributes to less stress, increasing again my productivity and focus. And being more centered allows for deeper connection with others. It’s a snowball effect, all parts supporting the others. Thank you, George, for helping getting this snowball rolling.
