After a while, I decided to quit my job, leave my country and move to London to look for new challenging opportunities. My first goal was to find a job in my field to develop my business communication skills. I was aware that my English was not great so I got an internship in a big company as a housing agent. At first I was happy and full of energy but after a while the lack of motivation began to rise again. Despite that feeling, I attempted to cheer myself up, telling myself ‘Come on! You must be glad! You’re working for a big company!’
Nevertheless, once I got to the office to see a mountain of paper work, I got depressed. But my story shortly changed when, on a Sunday like any other - without any interesting plan to do, I started looking for an enriching activity to do on the internet. Suddenly I spotted something different! A seminar to boost your confidence called ‘Powerful NPL Techniques to Skyrocket Your Confidence’. I wasn’t keen on stuff like self-help books and positive sermons because I’ve been quite good at solving my own personal problems but I thought I’d try something new.
Once I got there and took a seat, the room began to fill up and I thought: ‘What’s this about?’ When everybody was seated the coach started to talk to us about her personal experiences and how to reach our goals, fight against our fears and insecurities and spot our strengths, all related to NPL. After the introduction, we all started participating in activities together, applying the tools she provided in a practical way. For me, the hardest part was when I had to speak in front of the group. It was really challenging but at the same time I found my inner voice and I felt really powerful.
After the meeting, I had a coffee with some of the other participants and we discussed our experiences about the seminar. Personally, I found it really enjoyable and I could get the positive and cheerful attitude the coach had towards life but I didn’t feel any change in myself. But unexpectedly, something happened to me when I said goodbye to the other members and I was heading back home. I cannot describe it with words, it was just a powerful mighty feeling which arose within me and a phrase come up in my brain ‘Fight for your dreams and do what you really want to do in life’.
It was weird; it was as if my mind had suddenly assimilated everything advised in the seminar and all the positive thinking the coach had been talking about. At first I thought that I was a little bit crazy but if craziness is like that then I want to be crazy, haha! Later, I began to think about my job and I realized that perhaps my career path was one of my mistakes so I made the decision to talk to my bosses and express my personal thoughts and the outcome was surprising. They said: ‘If you’re not happy you can leave now’ and I did.
I spent a couple of days thinking about what to focus my life on and started looking for more information about The Happy World Company and the work they undertake, all the seminars, coaching, and so on. I couldn’t stop thinking of them as they helped me change my mind-set so I decided to get in touch with Nerea because I wanted to be part of a company committed to the happiness of people and help others overcome their weakness and fulfil their goals.
Shortly, Nerea got back to me and after an interview, I got the job! I was extremely happy! I was part of a company whose values, philosophy and team meant something important to me! This seminar definitely helped me because apart from getting a lovely job, I was also able to find my creativity, motivation, face my insecurities, boost my confidence and become happier! :D
