Today was a day that will go down in the books. My husband and I were blessed with the opportunity to attend part of "Master Your Influence." I knew that what I would be taught during the training would be interesting and beneficial, but what I didn't know is that it would inspire me to change my life. During the few hours that I spent with Kim and Kirk, I laughed, I cried (the good kind of cry), I made new friendships, and I learned so much about myself. They helped me identify my strengths and my weaknesses through analyzing my: body language, eye contact, relationships, communication skills, habits, and even my music choice! For a while I've been feeling like a car stuck in the mud. I just keep spinning my wheels without getting anywhere. It's been frustrating because I want to progress so badly, but I couldn't figure out what was holding me back from making that progress. I left today KNOWING exactly where my obstacles lie and more importantly, KNOWING how to start turning those obstacles into stepping stones. I know that improving myself and what's inside of me will help me to better influence others. Kirk and Kim have given me the tools to do that. As someone who dreams of becoming a teacher, that is A HUGE gift. I left with such a passion for the topics discussed that I haven't been able to stop talking about them! My cousin, grandparents, aunt, mom, and dad have already been recipients of that enthusiasm; because the first thing I did was go and tell them all about what I learned. Anyways, I definitely have a goal to attend all of their trainings one day!
