Our “GUEST BLOG” series continues and we excitedly introduce you to Nathalie Clayton.
A few self words about Nathalie as we introduce you to her uplifting positive energy blog:
Looking at my photo, would you seriously expect me to have a Scottish accent? Not many would! Not being able to get away from this distinct ‘difference’ all my life (not that I want too now!), has helped lead me to use my ‘differences’ and explore, question and mess with people’s perceptions in the most positive and genuine way. As a previous air pilot, fitness business owner and events consultant, I have now started following my original passion as a presenter and hopefully soon TV host. I love being transparent and real with people whether interviewing or simply presenting. People are my passion and as well as spreading love, life & positivity, I adore finding out others people’s passions and what drives them as sharing definitely breeds life and can inspire others!
We further share her positive story…….
‘Your Words Create Your Life” by Nathalie Clayton
Hardly anyone would believe me now if I told them that this outgoing, chatty Scottish girl used to be a horrendously shy shrinking violet – but it’s true! I was so introverted and constantly embarrassed when in company with people other than my immediate family, that It really did start to become a problem for me. Maybe it was due to my over-sheltered upbringing, or simply down to fear and insecurities that I felt were a part of me. I hated being this way and wanted to become that bold, fearless, confident, happy person that I dreamed of being, but instead, I felt trapped.
I became so frustrated with myself, that one dull, rainy day, I decided to do something about it. Although it wasn’t a onetime event that changed me overnight, I did begin surrounding myself with more positive influences, reading inspiring books and articles online, watching motivational videos and even building up the courage to attend some positive events. I quickly came to the realisation that I had to start the change that I wanted to see from the inside out! I also learned that the words I spoke out of my mouth on a daily basis, were actually creating my life around me Positively or Negatively! This was a pivotal point in my life – I could actually speak into existence the life that I dreamed of!
From then on, I began to watch the words that I spoke daily and as well as well as planning and working, I began to see my life change DRAMATICALLY from negative to positive! From that time until now, phenomenal things have happened in my life. From growing up in a small village outside Glasgow – Scotland, my words and plans have changed my life and I’ve done many things including studying as an aircraft pilot in California, spending summer holidays volunteering in Africa, running my own business, becoming successful in events management in London-worldwide and now helping me move into my ultimate dream of becoming a freelance Presenter. I have also now found the love of my life and we are now living in London, happily married expecting our first child this September!
Life is full of challenges, daily at times, but I’ve found that challenge actually helps me grow and become stronger by speaking positive words, believing and acting on them and refusing to accept mediocre…….but please, don’t just believe me or read this and think “ it worked for her, but I’m different” …..Try it for yourself, be consistent, be patient…..and watch your life transform too!
A couple of favourite quotes re: Words:
As a person believes in their heart, then speaks, that’s what they become
Life and death are in the power of the tongue
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind
You were created to create – words are your building blocks
