A Little Backstory
At the age of 30, I moved to California from Ukraine. Not knowing who I was, not speaking the language, never driven a car before, jobless, and extremely insecure, I needed to start my life from scratch. I practiced Family Law in Ukraine for 11 years but never felt that I meant to do this long-term. I felt like I had failed at life and had no idea what my purpose was or if I even had the strength to keep going. I had absolutely no support from my family in making a decision to emigrate to California.
But, deep down, I knew I had something to give to this world. My first year in California was spent in San Diego where I found myself struggling to find meaning and purpose in my new life. I was struggling with low self-esteem back home so after finding myself in the new country, having a Strong Accent and Language Barrier; it was very uncomfortable for a former lawyer who was used to being heard and understood by others. One day I asked myself: “Ok dear, what’s next?!” And my internal voice said “Well, how about beginning with Believing in yourself again?”
I started my Fitness Journey with a subconscious intent to better myself so I can be accepted and liked by others. Yes, I know it might sound crazy, but it’s true. Within 5 years, I competed in 11 shows across the country and won 1st Places and Overall Champion Titles. I had a fit body and dominated the competition stage. However, as soon as I got off of my athletic bodybuilding lifestyle, I would start struggling with low motivation, low self-esteem, and bad body image. It seemed that my Mental Health was an issue. I was able to change my Body BUT I was not able to change my Mind.
It was time to ask myself that question again: “What’s next my Dear?” And this time, my inner voice said “Use your Most powerful Tool: Your brain”. I began to immerse myself in every self-help book I could find. This eventually led me down the path of self-studying books on Cognitive Behavior Therapy and becoming an Eating Disorder Recovery Coach certified through EDIT Level 1-3. I studied The Power of Subconsciousness and its influence on our every day life. My life has turned 360 Degrees since then.
After 10 years of my personal transformation, my coaching now focuses on Self Development, Brain Health, and Healthy Relationship with Nutrition. My purpose is to help you MASTER YOUR MINDSET, TAP INTO YOUR TRUE POWER, AND BECOME YOUR BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF.
