I wanted to become a famous author and instead found myself stalking TV producers and magazine editors. I was tenacious, like a door-to-door saleswoman. At the very most, I had two minutes with these media people. I knew I had to make a powerful impact quickly! This experience was humbling, energizing and eye opening.
I spent the next several years, focusing on conflict resolution in the workplace. Then in September of 2000, disaster struck. Or, in retrospect, enlightenment. I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor the size of a golf ball that was blocking me from experiencing feelings. Before the surgery, fear eluded me. After the surgery, fear gripped me. I was fearless when I appeared before millions of people on the Today Show or Oprah. After surgery, if you breathed on me wrong, I’d cry.
I’d like to say while I was under anesthesia, I saw the vision from the white light that told me what I should do with the rest of my life. It didn’t happen quite that way. When I woke up, my first words were, “I’ve been quiet for nine hours and now it’s my turn to talk”. I took for granted that I’d immediately start speaking professionally again. It wasn’t that easy- something seemed to be stopping me. It was a life-changing moment when I finally realized it was me- there were parts of myself I was keeping hidden. That’s when the groundwork for “Games People Play in Business and Life” was laid, when I started to learn to truly face my fears and embrace the overwhelming emotion of terror that kept me stuck and learned to replace old behaviors with new behaviors.
I knew I had to spread the word. I get tremendous satisfaction from seeing the joy people experience when they transform their lives.
