"It's changed how confident I am to take the chances I need to take in order to get what I want in life and be persistent about it"
After moving back to Canada from Australia, Safina felt herself withdrawing from parts of her life. She felt completely disconnected from the person that she used to be and didn't like this new person that she was becoming. She felt like something was missing.
Areas where she felt stuck & what she learned
Her career as a dentist wasn't fulfilling her creative side and she was struggling to find an outlet. Through YuSchool she gained clarity around her purpose and values which led her to a creative director role with an events company.
She was having body image issues. Through YuSchool she learned that what matters is what she is putting out there. If that message or that attitude resonates with those people, those connections will form. If those connections don't form, it wasn't meant to, but it has nothing to do with her physical appearance.
How Her Life Has Changed
"Look, for me this has changed my perspective. This actually has changed the way that I think. It's changed my relationships, my interactions. It's changed how confident I am to take the chances I need to take in order to get what I want in life and be persistent about it." - Safina
"I have a lot of confidence in myself that I can do whatever I want in my life.
I don't have a chain anymore."
After being told she had no more room for growth at the architectural firm that she was working at, Paulina quit without having a plan. She knew that she wanted to do more and start her own company, but she was totally scared and paralyzed.
Biggest breakthroughs in YuSchool
"Clarity. I have tons of clarity now. I embrace my authenticity. Before I was, I never fit in a lot. I'm always been a different person and sometimes that held me back because I was a little too scared to be different."
"I started embracing my authenticity, because before I was really into myself and I lost it."
"Working with the fear, instead of letting it paralyze you, that's when you don't move forward. So it's more of, take that fear and take it with you and work with it instead of just don't look at it or forget about it."
