Are you a #meToo survivor? Dealt some bad cards in life? Find out “how to play to win” by tuning in to this podcast to learn How to play with the cards you were dealt in life.
We are live on location at the Main Broward Library in Fort Lauderdale. I will be discussing my book “Out of the Snares, a story of hope and encouragement.
You will also hear from a panel of speakers as we discuss the topic “How to play with the Cards you were dealt in Life.”

I wrote this book with the intention of drawing life lessons from various aspects of my Life.
For example the first life event that I introduced in my book
is as a victim of childhood sexual abuse and being born into poverty.
The life lesson I share here is that

You don’t have to be a victim in life; instead become a player.

Just like in the game of blackjack, if the dealer is
showing a picture card and you only have small cards, you don’t chuck your hand in and say there’s no way that I can win.
All you need is the intention to win and guess what, your hand is going to get better.

Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit

On this podcast my panel of speakers are:
Genese Vertus
Coach Dan Willms
And Coach Jenny Wang

Here is a short excerpt from my book:

Out of the Snares

I was born into a family with nothing, my mother and
grandmother were both domestic servants. My dad was in Teachers College and did not know his real father. He lived with his mom and stepfather who was an alcoholic.
In 1959 Guyana was a British colony of England.
Just like England colonized India and took all the wealth out of India, in a similar way England took all of Guyana’s
resources out of the country.
Most of the Blacks and Indians were living in poverty. My mom and grandmother worked for white English folk.
As a child I was always fed and had clothes and shoes to wear.
My mom and grandmother both made our clothes.
So, it was understandable that I would be drawn to my godfather, who was a
wealthy man with several houses, several cars and a corner shop filled with
snacks and chocolate bars. Mr. Clark as I will call him took a liking to me beyond that of a Godfather and treated me like his grandchild.
I spent a lot of time at his house. He took me out with
his family every weekend and really showered me with things.
He gave me food, gold chains and gold bracelets, he was also a goldsmith.
I ended up sleeping over at his house several times per week and playing with his grandchildren. He used to like to bounce me on his knee with his legs massaging my private parts.
One day my memory recalls, I was about five
years old, he braced me up against the wall and caressed my body.
As I got older the touching became more intimate.
He would rub my legs whenever I was close.
His favorite was the feeling me up in the front seat of his car while driving me to school.
His hand would be under my skirt fingering my private parts.
I was sure that people in other cars could see him doing this to me;
but he said they could not.
This continued for several years and then one day he took me
behind his shop and took my virginity with his fingers.
I didn’t tell anyone I’m not sure why. I do remember thinking that I
loved him so much and wanted to die before he did.
Mr. Clark started getting a reputation
for liking little girls and my dad asked
me if Mr. Clark ever touch me, I lied and said he had not.

I’m going to skip a couple of paragraphs, I don’t want to get
into the nitty-gritty details here.
I’m going to read to you now my conclusion of this chapter.

How did I play to win? Looking back, if I were to collapse my consciousness
and become the observer in this experience, I would say that at some
subconscious level I knew what we were doing was wrong.
I’m not sure why I chose to keep it a secret.
Research shows that children never tell, they become ashamed and feel that
they are to blame. I know I have always felt shamed. It took me a very, very, long time to share my story. Writing this book was my way of coming into the light and putting the devil on notice that I will no longer let guilt and shame be a part of my life.

That was my introduction to my book.
Pick up a copy to read the full story.

Out of the Snares

I have played with the sexual abuse card, and poverty by concentrating
on CANI. Constant and Never Ending Improvement.
They say that the secret to happiness is always moving
towards a goal and that is how I played the game.

It is wonderful that we’re meeting today in a library because I have always been a reader.
Reading books is how you play to win!

Tony Robbins is now a billionaire because he made himself read 700 books per year and those books taught him everything he knows.
Pat Riley of the Miami Heat said

“If you’re not growing, you are dying”

The second way I have played to win with the cards I have been dealt was to become conscious of my vibrational frequency.
I learned that later in life before I wrote my first book
“Becoming Conscious, my awakening”
I started understanding my vibrations. You see whenever somebody does
something to us, we feel bad and what happens when we feel bad?
We attract more of the same. We always say bad things comes in three’s, that is because you are attracting them to you.
So when you’re in a funk you have to find some way to make
yourself feel better, and one of the ways I do that is to always live in gratitude.
Because regardless of what’s going on in your life, there’s always something that you can
be grateful for. Breath, sight, food in your fridge, etc.
So, find some gratitude and feel that energy release a positive force that reverses all the bad in your life!

Survivors of sexual violence don’t owe anyone our stories. Here’s why I’m telling mine. #MeToo

Now let’s get on with the show!
My first guest is Genese Vertus

Gene Vertus

Show notes:
16:14 In 2009 at the age of 33 Genese became
CEO and founder of Passion Rescue Mission and reopened the Genecoit Vertus School of Excellence in Francois, Haiti providing tuition free education and serving over 225 students.
17:29 Genese How Have you played with the cards you were dealt in Life?
18:01 Winning has to less with the cards you have in your hand and more to do with how you play the game.

You have to play to win.

18:38 How did I play to win? I was born in one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, which is Haiti.
20:28 The goal is to win no matter what seven piece of dominoes or cards you have in your hand.
21:56 Kenny Rogers sings a song that says

“You have to know when to Hold and when to Fold”

22:27 Three simple things helped me play with my cards.
1. My faith in God
2. Pursuit of an education
3. A strong support system

30:10 I was fortunate enough to come to this great country to get an education and in
2009 I returned back to Haiti and reopened a school that my father built. We started with 189
students at that time currently we have 225 students getting a
tuition-free education in one of the poorest, mountainous, villages in Haiti,
which is Francois Haiti. We provide meals, we provide school supplies
we provide uniforms and we have 12 teachers that are employed.
I have a waiting list of over 300 students wanting to get into that school right now; so it’s not enough
To win at your game, we must give back. Once you get to where you need to be, you need to
reach back and help your people.

34:39 Introduction of our next guest Coach Dan Willms
Dan Willms is a facilitator for the leadership challenge, a writer and an
international speaker. He’s also the creator of the Positive Change Workshop
and facilitates his workshops in Portuguese, English, and Spanish.
Dan has facilitated more than 145 Positive Change Workshops.

36:49 I believe that even though it is hard to be born poor, it’s not about being born poor
or rich. I’m coming to a conclusion it’s not about the money it’s not about where you
were born it’s what you do with all that.

37:25 I remember the first big tragedy I saw in my life. I was 11 years old. it
was my last day in school. I was ironing a shirt and my father hanged himself in
front of his 11 kids. I was the baby and none of us knew what to do.
So we just watched the body for over an hour until the paramedics came.
But I think even more devastating that watching my father hang himself was the feeling I had as a child
that other people were more special than me.
I would look at the other families where there wasn’t alcohol abuse, there was no
Drugs, there was no fighting, and I would think wow, why are they more special
than I am in the eyes of God.

39:03 I grew up feeling inferior, wondering do black people when they are
kids they look at white people and think wow why are they more special than I am?

39:36 Then I got to thinking, do Gay people wonder why Straight people are more special than they are?
39:53 because I was poor, because we did not have a lot of food, because my father was
an alcoholic, my brothers were drug addicts then I would look at my
neighbors and think why are they more special than I am.

40:39 Now I teach happiness. I teach positive psychology and I teach the
Science of Happiness. I have helped thousands of people to change their
Lives. Thousands of couples who come to me, some can’t they can’t even look
at each other. Parents who cannot have a conversation with their kids. Kids who
cannot stand their parents, but somehow they have to live under the same roof,
so they come to me asking for help.

41:10 I learned from my mom that you will not go far in life if you
don’t make peace with your past. It doesn’t matter where you came from,
if you’re Black, White, Gay or Straight, if you’re bisexual, you have to make
peace with your past.

44:33 I was doing missionary work and was a model missionary. I
found out I was also Gay, but since I be couldn’t be Gay and be a missionary, I had to
pick one and I wasn’t quite sure which one. I chose to be Gay and be myself.
I mean for God’s sakes, God is my father he made me just like this.
And I go around thinking I am broken. How many times we think we are sick we think we are
Disgusting, we think we are not good enough for anyone or anybody. That’s how
I felt most of my life. it is horrible when you look in the mirror and you feel very sick.
You think you’re going to burn in hell.

46:14 You are not building for today you are building for tomorrow. You are building with the tools and resources
you’ve got in the past, so if you don’t make peace with your past, it’s not going to work.

Jenny Wang

51:12 Jenny Wang Introduction
51:15 Jenny is passionate about helping people improve
Performance through holistic learning. She is a Professional Certified Coach and a
Senior Learning and Program Manager at Nutranext, which is the healthiest employer in the US.
Jenny is also a Certified Health Coach and co-author of Bringing Mindfulness to Your
Workplace. Jenny and I worked together at Office Depot. She was my mentor at
Toastmasters, then she became my Coachee as she worked on finding her purpose. I’m
Sure she has found her purpose. Let’s give a warm welcome to Ms Jenny Wang

52:22 I have had some good cards. But there are some cards we cannot choose.
We cannot chose our Father we cannot choose our Mother or our relatives.
I was born and raised in China in a very traditional family. I don’t have trauma
in my life, my parents are very lovely and educated; but there’s one thing that
we never agreed on. When I got married I never thought I wanted children.
I don’t know how many of you are natural parents; but I was not one of them.
When I was at 34 years old my father called me from China had a big
argument with me. He wanted to have a grandchild.
So, How did I play to win? I chose to honor my father’s request because family is important to me.
Now eight years later, people ask me what was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life?
And I say “To have a child”
My son has brought me so much joy, so much wonderful
things to my life that I have never ever thought that I would have.

The second card everyone has, but they also cannot chose is
Passion and purpose.

The 3rd card we are dealt is a Health.
The most important thing for everybody is good health. I decided to take
the journey of being a Yoga Instructor and a Health Coach.

59:01 I learned we can become happy by changing how we move our bodies.
Yoga encourages us to think about our health.
No matter how busy you are, no matter how much outside achievement you have,
by the end of the day you have to take time for yourself.

7 Ways to Get Your Confidence Back after a Divorce or Death of a Spouse.

Need to build confidence? This week on Transform your Mind podcast with Coach Myrna, I interview Confidence mentor Di Ridell. Di is going to talk to us today on the subject “7 Ways to get your confidence back after a divorce of death of a spouse.”

As I do every week, I would like to leave you with my tip of the week on “6 Ways to get your Confidence back or to build it up.”

Tip of the week: 6 Tips for Building Unstoppable Confidence:

Building true confidence after the betrayal of a partner is a gradual process. No one is going to turn into a positive, self-confident person overnight.
But if you’re in need of a place to start, here are 6 tips to get you back on the horse.

1. Stop comparing yourself to others.
The worst thing you can do is compare yourself to others. I know from experience that this is a confidence killer, especially if you are comparing yourself to someone younger. Remember that you’re only seeing the surface of their lives and looks, not the underlying reality. Focus instead on what’s important–your own strengths and goals.

2. Keep your limiting beliefs at bay.
Even the most successful people with healthy relationships have limiting beliefs about themselves, but the biggest difference is that they choose to focus on their strengths and possibilities instead of their limits.

3. Live in a positive reality.
Don’t say anything about yourself that you don’t want to become a reality. Positive thoughts and words alone won’t make you a more confident person, but confident people do think a lot of positive things about themselves. Remind yourself of what you’re capable of and what you’ve already accomplished.

4. Don’t mask it.
Self-confidence isn’t the impression you give others; but how you feel about yourself. It’s all about who you are, where you are, and where you want to be in your own life and relationships.

5. Change what you can.
Confident people know they cannot change the past, but they can change the future. They make daily choices that lead them toward the future they want to live out.

6. Be fully committed.
Be fully committed to doing whatever you can to build your success every single day, accepting full responsibility for your life. If it gets uncomfortable, you’re probably on the right track! Don’t procrastinate, do what it takes without agonizing or drama.

My guest today is a toastmaster’s trained Speaker, self published Author , Facilitator and MC . Master Practitioner of NLP, Certified Life Coach and Confidence mentor.
Tune in to hear Di’s story of how she was gang raped at 15 years, forced to give the baby up for adoption and told that she was worthless and that no good man would want her. She ended up in a 31 year marriage that restored her confidence until her husband died and she had to find the confidence to start over and date in the second half of life.

This article from Howard Tullman on How to get your Confidence Back
and Jeffrey R. Carter
Says:

When you loose your confidence, you focus on your fears and not your hopes

Powerful interview, don’t miss it if you are lacking in self confidence.

Show notes:
1. Tell us your journey to becoming a confidence mentor.
2. What is Confidence – is it magical? How we get and lose it?
3. How has confidence contributed to what you do?
4. What advice do you have for women 50 + who have lost their partners or gone through a life changing challenge?
5. What problems do women over 50 experience when starting over after a death or divorce. How do they solve them?
6. Tell us about your book.

How to Reap Where You Plant

Play

This week on #Mindset Transformation with coach Myrna, I share an interview with Dr Denise Johnson, Spiritual Psychologist, on her radio program “Spiritual Principles for Emotional Healing.”

In this interview, I share my back story of how I became conscious and awakened,
(The title of my first book, Becoming Conscious, my Awakening), the situations and storms in my personal life that resulted in my spiritual growth and evolution, and finally my topic “Are you Eating your Seed, How to Reap where you Plant”
In this episode I also share how Tony Robins “Unleash the Power Within” seminar ushered me in the direction of my purpose.
You see I was on my way to becoming a house wife when I happened to attend one of Tony’s “Unleash the Power Within” seminars and left the experience totally fired up!
Two months later, I was the proud owner of my first stretch limousine and the CEO of “A Royal Livery Limousine Service”
Six years later, I was being honored with “Entrepreneur of the Year”

Tony Robbins
Tony Robbins

Unleash the power within

Here is Gerald Butler’s experience with the “Unleashing the Power within” seminar!

“Fear is a huge issue for me. This technique Tony has is a really smart way to literally set those fears aside… That to me, is unleashing the power within.” – Gerard Butler

As a distinguished actor, Gerard Butler, spends his life at the next level. Between his countless roles, Gerard is also a dedicated philanthropist. Introduced to Tony Robbins through his dad when he was 17, Gerard had listened to several audio programs before attending Unleash the Power. Despite living life in the public eye and being one for adventure, Gerard struggled with losing focus and being consumed in fear. Before attending Unleash the Power Within, he even found himself nervous about participating with 10,000 other people. Enraptured by the intense energy of the event, his nerves quickly disappeared and he found himself finally able to move towards overcoming his habit of fear.

In this episode, I explain the concepts of coaching.
Coaching is taking the client from where they are today to where they want to be tomorrow.
Life coaching is different from sports coaching.
If the client does not get the victory, you don’t fire the coach!

The life coach’s role is not to design the plays, but to Help the client discover the right plays!

As a spirituality coach, I help my clients understand who they are?
What beliefs have been holding them back from success?
What are the obstacles they have to overcome to achieve success in life?

What are some of the seeds you need to plant to achieve success?
Most of us are familiar with the seeds of tithing and giving.
The bible teaches that if you bring your tithe into the storehouse, God would multiply it 60, 100 times.
But the law of sowing and reaping go way beyond the physical.
My sales manager told me once to “To Reap where I plant”
That means that as a field sales agent, I am building relationships daily, I am planting seeds.
Similar to a real estate agent who farms a territory.
You don’t want to spend years building, sowing, and then leave before the harvest!

Sowing seeds are important in your job, in your marriage, in your friendships, with your children.
The bible teaches to love as you want to be loved, you must give first whatever you want to receive!
In your job, if you are faithful, working hard every day as unto the Lord, then your seeds will grow into the harvest of a promotion.
Just keep watering the seed through service and attention.

Why does God give you a seed?
As is taught in the parable by Jesus and the 3 servants entrusted with bags of silver by their master; God expects you to multiply whatever he gives to you.
He does not give you a talent or a gift for you to bury it or hoard it for yourself; no he gives it to you to benefit his kingdom.

Let me explain that using a physical example, the apple tree. Each apple has 5 seeds.
500 apple trees can produce an orchard of 30,000 apples. Proprietary growing and pruning methods developed by Tree Plantation, can double that again to over 100,000 apples per acre.
In a similar way, God gives you seeds so that you can scatter them and produce fruit!
He can blow your seeds where you did not even plant!

How to Make your Ground Fertile?.
To make your ground fertile, you have to hear the word, and do the word.
You can’t reap a harvest without first tilling the soil, you have to make the soil ready to receive the nutrients to grow the plants.
One way to do this is to find your burning bush!
What did God put inside of you that he wants you to bring to fruition?

How to Equate the Laws of the Harvest to the Laws of the Universe?
Whatever you sow you shall reap!
You reap in proportion to what you sow, so sow generously.
Remember the oak tree lives in the acorn! Small things do grow into big things.
Keep hitting the anvil, do something small every day to water the seed you have in the ground.

What is the Eating Your Seed Concept?
You have to save some of your earnings in order to plant it.
If you consume it all, you will have nothing to plant and you will always be without.
That is why your financial planner advises you to save 10% of your income to invest and get a return.

The bible teaches us that if you give, it will be given to you, A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.
But it starts with giving.
Give whatever you want to receive, plant whatever you want to sow!

In closing, this is your season, this is the right time, start planting your seeds, keep watering them every day and watch God turn your apple into an orchard!

Principle # 4 Have a Positive Mind-set

fear-no-evil

Take control of your thoughts and attitudes. Get rid of ANTS (Automatic Negative Thoughts) #outofthesnares

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” ~Buddha

Imagine your mind as a garden. Positive thoughts are the beautiful flowers that brighten your life. Negative thoughts are the ugly weeds that spread and suffocate your happiness, by cutting off sunlight. Just like plants we need sunlight to thrive.

Negative thoughts can take the form of fear, self-doubt, guilt, anger, blame, insecurity, prophesying or any thought that makes you feel bad!

You need to kill the ANTS :(Automatic Negative Thoughts)

Ant # 1 Fear – Defined as False Events Appearing Real, is the number one reason that we don’t achieve success in this life. Fear of the unknown, that feeling of uncertainty. Fear is the bottom feeder of all the negative emotions. When you are living in Fear, you feel very bad and you attract more bad things into your experience.

One way to Kill this ANT is to imagine what is the worst that could happen. Face it in your mind. Take it to your subconscious and dream about it. Once you face it, it loses its hold on you. Talk back to this fear. Move up the emotional scale with anyone of the negative emotions. Eg. You can become angry that your spouse is treating you a certain way, instead of being afraid of being alone if you left the relationship. See yourself alone and loving it.

There is also a positive side to this ANT.

If you are afraid of losing something be it your spouse, your job, your home; it tells you that these things are important to you and that you should do everything in your power to keep them. For example: if you fear losing your spouse, then you should work on keeping the marriage fresh, you should keep yourself attractive and don’t let yourself get to 300 lbs, serve your spouse and make him/her feel special.

Ant # 2 Self-doubt – or lack of self-confidence is a very powerful ANT. One of the most essential character traits to have is self-confidence. It is sexy and it allows you to command attention. When this ANT is telling you that you are not good enough, you will not get that promotion because you don’t have a degree, for example; talk back to it and tell it that you are the best person for the job and that it is their loss if they don’t hire you. If you don’t, you will never move from where you are today. You will never be an over achiever or the top sales person on a team! You need self-confidence to achieve success.

ANT # 3 Guilt – Guilt is a result of your conscience telling you that you have violated your own core value. It is telling you that you did something that is moving you away from your predetermined goal. You can talk back to this ANT by telling it that you have recognized your mistake and that you have forgiven yourself. Don’t let the guilt and shame arrest you and keep you in bondage. A lot of people wash away this guilt with drugs and alcohol.

ANT # 4 Anger – Anger ANTS keep telling you that someone had no right to do something. The more you think about it, the angrier you get. Psychologists say that anger is like an iceberg. What you see is just the tip, that there is more ice for miles below the surface. If you are conscious that you have an Anger problem, then you should understand (with the help of a Therapist) what is causing your anger. You can talk back to this ANT and tell it that you cannot control what someone else does; the only person you can control is yourself.

ANT # 5 Blame – this ANT can be very destructive. When you blame others for the results you are having in your life, you assume the role of the victim. As the victim, you have no power to facilitate change. You talk back to this ANT by becoming a Player. As a Player you take back control. Regardless of what the dealer is showing, you can still win! You are not the product of your circumstances. Everyone has a story. It is how you handle adversity and challenges that define and grow you. In my book “Out of the Snares” I never blamed my childhood abuser. I instead chose to look at the positives I learned from that experience. Life is full of good and evil. Every evil person has a good side and every good person has an evil side.

garden

ANT # 6 Prophesying – the prophesying ANT talks to you about what it knows about the future! It tells you things like “you are never going to close that sale”. “The customer is going to string you along and they will never buy” or “it is never going to work out”. You can talk back to this ANT by declaring that IT cannot predict the future. It does not have a crystal ball!

Once you learn to recognize the ANTS and learn to deal with them by sending them packing, then you can replace them with Positive Thoughts. Positive thoughts are like flowers, they beautify your garden and bring smiles to anyone who stops and pays attention to their beauty; in a similar way positive thoughts make you beautiful to anyone who you have interpersonal relations with. But the beauty of Positive Thoughts is that they make you feel good. Like attracts like and before you know it, you have an abundance of good things becoming part of your experience.

I’ve seen firsthand how dangerous it is to let the weeds of negative thinking take over your mind. Just like in a natural garden, it you left the weeds unattended, they thrive more than the flowers or plants. In a similar way when you allow the ANTS to run free in your head; they snuff out all the joy from your life. All you then see is darkness, because they are blocking the sunlight from getting in!

What’s Your Story, #BreakTheSilence

?????????????????????????What does child sexual abuse look like?
It is the face of innocence interrupted.
Millions of children are, sexually abused every year by people they trust. Fathers, brothers, uncles, family friends, their mothers boyfriends…the list goes on.

The TLC network is shining a light on this issue with their documentary “Breaking the Silence.”

This documentary “Breaking the Silence” aired on the TLC network Sunday, August 30. This one-hour special featured interviews with people impacted by sexual abuse, including two members of RAINN’s Speakers Bureau, survivors Ter-rae Lee and David Moody, as well as survivor-advocate Erin Merryn, the force behind Erin’s Law.

One of the speakers on the program was Cheryl Burke of Dancing with the Stars fame. Cheryl shared her child sexual abuse story. She was sexually abused by her kinder-garden school teacher at the tender age of 6 years. She shares how that experience has shaped her life and defined her subsequent choice in lovers.

Some other famous child sexual abuse survivors were Oprah Winfrey and Dr Maya Angelou. All three of these women overcame their childhood obstacles and went on to live remarkable lives, but some are not so fortunate. In my book “Out of the Snares, A story of hope and encouragement” I share my childhood sexual abuse story and give my readers 10 life principles on how to not only overcome your childhood story but how to succeed in spite of it.

Chapter 2: “Out of The Snares”

As a Certified a Life Coach, I am trained to help my clients look back at their past and find clues for their future. It is not that the past equals the future, but that it gives you an indication of how you respond to hurts and disappointments. For example: Do you tackle them head on and fight like Rocky Balboa, or do you fold up like an umbrella and let circumstances anchor you in life?

In Chapter 2 of my book “Out Of The Snares” I share with my readers how I responded to a significant childhood hurt, child abuse. I used the analogy of a train traveling to a predetermined destination and hit something along the way and become derailed. That train can no longer continue on to that destination. Once derailed it is finished.

I made the choice not to let the circumstances of my childhood, derail me. Instead, I chose to look at the positives that came out of that experience and allowed the lessons learned to shape me into the person I am today.
We all have a story, the successful people in life, succeed in spite of their story. I share secrets on how to use your story as the launching pad to fire you up.

I show how the people that God placed in your life as a child, are there to teach you something. Just as in the story of Moses being raised by the Pharaoh’s daughter until he was ready for God to use him to fulfill his purpose, all the people in your life have strategic purposes.

The take away from this chapter is that we all have a past. Some more daunting than others, but under every cloud there is a silver lining. Success in life depends on how you chose to respond to the rain.

Remember that the same rain that causes the flood is the same rain that is responsible for the harvest.
