Within the time frame of about one hour, I witnessed a complete personality change from a meek and insecure woman to one that stood tall and proud. ...and looks had engendered this 180 degree turn around! I was so stunned I was speechless. In that moment, I suddenly had this epiphany of how people are jumping through all kinds of hoops in the outside world in order to make themselves feel good on the inside. We seem to live with this need for an outer thrill or stimuli like make up, clothes, accessories, work, money, sex, relationships, food, alcohol, drugs, etc. to make us feel we are wonderful.
But what a sham! The effects these outer crutches provide isn't real and therefore not lasting. Endeavoring to make ourselves feel better with external props when in actuality we don't feel good about ourselves will never produce the desired outcome. Not in the long run anyway. Plus, what happens when the pseudo aids no longer work? Or worse, not ever really work from the get-go? What then?
This entire awareness flashed inside my head within a split second and I heard myself saying that I wanted to find a way to help people feel good about themselves without any outer props. I wanted to assist people to experience their own intrinsic beauty and perfection no matter their looks or outer circumstances. In that instant, applying make-up had lost its appeal. A few weeks later, I quit that job and began focusing on building a business with Brain Gym (see Bio for details.)
