Hi, I’m Sandy
From a young age, I have always had a curious mind and questioned everything.
This curious mind often got me into trouble growing up. I was raised in a traditional Indian household where “good Indian girls” such as myself had to behave in a certain way to fit the cultural etiquette.
I grew up to believe that my sole purpose in life was to marry a suitable Indian boy, have children and serve the family. However, that curious side of me always looked beyond this and yearned for a greater ‘me’ in the world.
Jumping forward, I worked in the corporate world of recruitment for 20 years. This career allowed me to showcase my ability to go from good to great when I became the top performing consultant in the company. The more money I made, the more successful and worthy I felt.
This experience naturally led me into the world of coaching and mentoring. Where I would help many aspiring consultants to achieve outstanding results as well as tapping into candidates’ full potential to find their dream jobs. It is from here that I learned the power of my coaching and became an accredited life coach.
I now believe that it is my purpose to make people feel good about themselves and achieve more in life than they ever thought was possible. So when they show up as their best, they will give their best and this will lead to a better and more loving world!
Like most of you, I set out in life with clear life goals. I got an education. I had a very successful career where I was at the top of my game. I was a high earner which enabled a luxurious lifestyle. I got married, purchased our dream home and was then blessed with a healthy son.
My life seemed perfect!
Well, at least that’s what it looked like from the outside – The truth was I felt lost, overwhelmed with negative emotions and felt stuck on a hamster wheel going 100 miles an hour just to survive!
In 2000, my house got struck by lightning. I lost everything!
In 2005, I experienced substantial career burnout which led to a long period of mental distress.
In 2007, I had a distressing miscarriage after trying for a baby for 7 years.
In 2009, I had laser corrective eye surgery that went terribly wrong. After losing 80% of my vision I was rushed to Moorfields hospital where I was close to being declared blind. My son was seven months old at the time – I had to prepare myself to potentially never see his face again!
In 2013, I finally worked up the courage to leave an abusive marriage after 19 years. This was followed by three years of acrimonious divorce proceedings.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with chronic rheumatoid arthritis by my Doctor. They told me that my life would never be “normal” again.
As you can see above, I have faced my fair share of hurdles. It was at these points I had a choice. One was to become the victim of the circumstance – the easy route or to step out of my comfort zone and use these life experiences to evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I decided to do the latter and hire myself a great life coach and seek answers. I read many books and attended world class seminars such as Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within, Wealth Mastery and Date with Destiny. As well as other transformation programmes like The Landmark Forum.
To my astonishment, I realised the power and strength I was seeking on the outside was actually within ME!
Once I realised this, I was able to face the world with a whole new mindset and practices that would change my life forever.
Fifteen years on, I see myself as my strongest advocate as I stand here today living my best life! I show up authentically with love, confidence and contentment. I fully trust that everything in life happens for a reason. It all depends on how you choose to perceive it.
As a single mother, I run my own successful coaching business where I have a much healthier work/life balance. I have the freedom to choose my income, my hours and my location. But most importantly my health is back on point – I have 20/20 eye vision and have shown no symptoms of arthritis for three years – this is down to my empowering mindset and beliefs that anything is possible!
So now that I have become a Master of my own destiny, I am honoured to be able to share my knowledge and life experience to help you become the master of your own life!
