Hi, I’m Cheryl Chapman, (you can see me here on the left with Marion Bevington)
Before I discovered my “WHY,” I used to blame everything on everyone.
If I had a bad day at work, a terrible experience, or wasn’t happy with my life… it would always be someone else’s fault except mine.
Maybe you can relate to this?
I lived in the same negative pattern for years.
Then, at the age of 48, I attended a one-day seminar, and one speaker in particular caught my attention as he asked:
If you were to die tomorrow, who would mourn your loss?
I realised my life was a mess. I was drinking heavily, going to a job that didn’t fulfil me, and I had started asking questions like “is this really it?”
Something needed to change and change fast!
(I only learned later that something was ME!)
I enrolled in the Public Speaker’s University to try and connect with others and make a change in my life. I met Marion Bevington (who later became the co-creator of The Find Your WHY! Foundation with myself)
She helped me to understand that I had been held back in my life due to experiences in my childhood & adulthood that had lead to limiting beliefs about who I was and what I could achieve.
I began a search to find my purpose in life and to find out who I really was.
It took 8 years of multiple courses, training, too much theory, and very little actionable steps as well as a lot of time and money invested. Eventually I found it... the truth was I'd been living a lie, playing small and doing what everyone else thought I should do.
Have you ever felt like you had lost yourself and control of your life?
Once I found my WHY I realised what it was that needed to change and I started to live the life I was really born to live. Today life is easier, it's more fun and I know that my WHY is to guide others so they can:
"STOP Asking WHY Me? And START Saying WHY Not Me!"
Interestingly, most new ideas - investing in property, bitcoin, becoming an entrepreneur, selling on line products or services - any changes all bring up fear and that is why you need to have a purpose to keep you motivated. Many peoples "its my children/family" ...NO! they are your responsibility!
Your WHY is to motivate YOU to live the life you were born to live
and without your personal WHY? You could find yourself living someone else's!
Today I am the founder and visionary of the “Find your WHY! Foundation” and author of the Award-winning book "Find Your WHY! – To Become Frickin’ Awesome"
I am an international multi-award winning speaker and multi-award winning speaker mentor to thousands of clients across the globe and The TEDxAinleyTopWoman Event Organiser and I love to help women like you to...
