Do you wait to get approval and acceptance of your choices from others (family, friends, society) before going for what you love?
Hi – I’m Michelle Jack and I help women gain the confidence they need to go for their dreams without needing approval or acceptance from anyone.
It is my mission in life to help women discover what lights them up and together we unlock their confidence to go for their dreams.
Let me take a guess at where you might be right now.
Firstly, you aren’t living your ultimate dream life. In fact, you are living an OK life but no matter how many THINGS you buy or bring into your life, you still feel incomplete. Like you aren’t doing what you are supposed to be doing. (Oh, I get that!!)
Instead, you are being held back by something. It could be one or more of the following:
- Need for approval
- Need for acceptance
- Need to be loved
- Low self-esteem and confidence
No, I’m not a mind reader or a psychic. I’ve just been there before. I know how it feels to be living my life for others and not really stepping into my full potential.
And the good news? I know how to get out of that vicious cycle. I know how to break you free from the ties that bind. Because I’ve done it myself!
In the quest to gain love, acceptance and approval from others, I went to university, studied a Bachelor of Business & Commerce, majoring in marketing and then went on to have a successful career in corporate marketing. To be honest, I didn’t have a terrible time. I had some pretty cool experiences, met some great people, travelled around the world – my sister would introduce me to others as a “high flying corporate executive”.
And boy did I love being admired. Which is probably why I did it for so long. Despite a constant nagging feeling like I was destined for more, destined for greatness, I stayed exactly where I was: loved by everyone around me – except for myself.
I slowly woke up to the realisation that if I didn’t change anything, I would end up living my whole life to impress others and at the end resent myself for it. I learnt a crucial lesson: you can try and try to impress others but at the end of the day you cannot control how they will feel. Reality is some people will love you and others won’t. This was such a huge wake up call for me. Why bother wasting my energy trying to control how others feel about me when I should instead focus on feeling better about myself.
It was then I discovered who I really needed to become. A Queen.
A Queen has deep love and respect for herself. She has firm boundaries and goes for what she wants with determination, focus and compassion. She doesn’t need approval or acceptance from others. Instead, she acts as a role model to show others how they too can forge their own path.
I must say, it’s not an easy journey to go from feeling stuck and needy to ascend your throne as Queen. And believe me when I say, you can’t solve the problem with the same level of thinking that created it. But there is a way. A way out of the hole you are in and a path to your dream life. I’ve done it. Through my journey, I learned how to challenge limiting beliefs and negative mindsets. I discovered ways of turning brick walls and obstacles into possibilities and opportunities. I now reap the benefits of living a life that is 100% on my terms, which is greater love, approval and acceptance than you ever even knew existed!
Now that I have discovered how truly wonderful life is, I want to help other women discover it for themselves too. So from my inner Queen to yours, let me share with you this: you are destined for greatness. You are destined for more. It’s your time to claim the life that is rightfully yours.
With love and respect,
