How one moment in a class room stole my power...and I took it back.

My face burned red as the teacher shoved a book into my stomach.

Next, he grabbed me by the back of the neck to “guide” me to the place I was supposed to know to go to.

I must have been around 8 years old at the time.

I think we were doing Maths. I attribute that to the fact of why I hate maths so much. But that may just be a story I told myself.

The fact was, I had asked my teacher a question and this was the way he responded.

I think back to that day sometimes. Mainly when I think about Maths.

It’s an anchor I have created.

I don’t even know if it’s true, but I assume it is.

It ingrained so deeply in me.

The complete humiliation.

The lack of trust.

The story that I was rubbish at maths and generally a bit stupid. My teacher thought so, it must be true.

Have you had those moments?

Tiny memories that come back to you over and over and anchor you in a belief about yourself?

You wonder why that is the moment that stuck with you more than anything.

It’s the shame.

The knowledge that you are stupid, and they just confirmed it.

When I look back on that teacher now, I think to myself - what was going on in his life to make him so mean? Why would he choose to teach primary children if that’s how he felt? What was it that led to that moment? Does he ever realise the impact he had on young minds?

Now I know the truth, it had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about him. But I still gave that moment power for far too long.

How many times have you given away your power?

Do you still do it now?

If you do,

  • If you sit quietly while someone takes advantage of you.

  • If you stay quiet to “keep the peace”.

  • If you think it’s your fault.

  • If you know that it’s not, but you are stuck in a habit of doubting yourself.

Know it can change.

Know that life can be different.

Know that you can be all the things you want to be.

I learned, I can change my life, in any way I need to.

And you can too.

It takes willingness to take action, a good support structure, plus a strong belief it is possible.

If you don’t yet believe, give me a call. I will show you how you can:

  • Step into your power

  • Inspire yourself to make changes.

  • Find the belief that life can indeed be different.

All those times your power was taken from you, you can take that back.

Have a Powerful Day!
