Jeanie walked in prepared for teaching. She brought her paper and markers to help her share her message. She is a blast to have around, full of energy, excitement and spontaneity. As we sat down together to make a plan of action she opened up and shared her vision and we made a plan to fit that vision. It was fun to improvise and learn a new way.
I sat down as the representation of the 5000 people - in other words I was her guinea pig. :) In her presentation she asked me the questions and I answered them honestly. She got me to realize that some of my dreams were not coming true because of a negative belief I have/had about not being smart enough. (Yeah, that one still comes up).
At one time she asked me to write a name I had been called onto a label. I wrote, Breasta, as that was my common nick name in junior high among to boys. She then asked me to put it on someone else - well the only person at that time in the room was Dave, our producer, so I labeled him. She asked me how that felt and I said, "Weird, not good at all, it didn't even fit." "Good." she said, "That's exactly what its suppose to feel like." Well, she didn't see the label and I looked over at Dave in hopes to get a smile out of him and he frowned.
If you have ever been bullied or listened to those negative voices in your head, you will want to hear this presentation. She will help guide you and give you tools to fight back and win over those voices.
