INSPIRING YOU TO CREATE A POSITIVE LIFE STORY
My name is Julieta Timane, and I have become an expert at finding the positive side to life, no matter what challenges we face. I organise and speak at Daring to Live – motivational events with incredible speakers on lifestyle improvement themes. I am also an associate of the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD), and am on the way to becoming a Certified Coach.
I have travelled widely – with my successful career in corporate human resources. I have been privileged to work for major international corporations. I have lived and worked in many countries including Italy, the Netherlands and Japan – and now I call Singapore and The Hague home.
A few years ago I faced a major challenge: moving to Malaysia in 2013. While I was an experienced globetrotter, for the first time in my life I found myself lost and unable to adjust to this new country. My body was in Malaysia but my mind was still in the Netherlands – the place I considered home. I desperately missed my friends and family and my fantastic job back home.
This feeling of inadequacy spiralled into cycles of inaction, frustration, sadness, unhappiness and guilt. I was blaming the entire world for my inability to adjust. I was living in the past, and by doing so I was shutting myself off from the many beautiful opportunities that were right in front of me in the present.
Things started changing for me when I made the decision to improve myself. I started reading books, attending workshops and taking responsibility. By doing so I came across many insights that helped me get back into the driving seat of my life. Sometimes just reading or hearing a particular inspirational phrase about personal growth was like a spark in my mind, triggering a huge shift in my perception of the world and myself.
And so my quest for change and fulfilment and for living a more inspired life began, and I gradually started to feel more and more empowered.
Over the years, I have explored personal and spiritual growth alongside developing my career, with the aim of enhancing my overall well-being. I have learned three important things: (1) every challenge brings an opportunity, (2) our worth is unquestionable, and (3) in order to live a fulfilling life we must tap into the power we have within us – and the only way we can do this is by reconnecting with ourselves.
Although we have to deal with change all the time, it can be extremely challenging and can make us feel vulnerable and powerless. The way we handle change and the stories we tell ourselves define the way we live and how happy we feel.
Because of the huge difference this can make in our lives, I warmly invite you to join me in a Fulfilment Journey Workshop. In this online one-on-one Skype/video session, I will share the most important strategies I have learned for handling change in a positive way. During these two hours I will encourage you to reflect on your life, reconnect with your inner self through writing exercises, and take action towards your goals. After the workshop I will also actively support you for 30 days as a goal achievement partner to make sure you stay focused and committed to your personal quest.
Every time I see participants on this journey achieve things they thought were impossible, it is such a humbling and rewarding experience. It is always a privilege to inspire others – particularly women who feel strongly that they want to change their path in life in order to feel more motivated and empowered.
I am a firm believer that each of us has the power to design our own lives and to live more connected to our ideals, values and aspirations. Personal fulfilment and success – no matter how we define it – can only be reached with intention, on our own terms, and with commitment, focus and determination.
If you want to live a more fulfilled life and bring positive changes into your life, then this workshop will be the start of that journey. It will truly inspire you to create a positive life story for yourself.
I wish you a beautiful life, and I hope to see you soon.
