When lockdown hit, I could feel my anxiety rising, those negative thoughts came creeping in and I panicked due to all the uncertainty.
However, once I got over the initial shock I started to think, how can I use this time to grow my business and create even more value for my audience- we all need support more than ever!
My business started as Master your Mind, which at the time fit with my vision and values. However over the last few months I have made many shifts within my business and found that I had outgrown Master your Mind and it no longer felt the right fit.
So I jumped in headfirst and decided to completed rebrand and use ME! www.hannahboardman.com.
I went into this area of work BECAUSE of my story and overcoming an Eating Disorder, severe anxiety and a fear of not being good enough. These things held me back for over 15 years. Since finally being able to let these things go for GOOD I have made it my life's mission to make sure that others in similar positions do NOT have to struggle for as long as I did. Things CAN change.
Here is my story in a nutshell:
Look how big your arms are, what are you, a rugby player?”. That comment led me to my first diet at just 16. Fast forward 10 years and I was in the thick of battling Bulimia, high anxiety and hating the person I had become. I was so exhausted, I just couldn’t carry on another day. This was my rock bottom. I had tried everything to beat this and felt worse than ever! The thought of living with this for the rest of my life terrified me!
It was only when I looked outside the typical solutions and therapies, did I finally start to gain some hope.
I lost 15 years of my life feeling controlled by food, being highly anxious, insecure and never feeling good enough. I cannot let others lose any more valuable time to such destructive relationships themselves. I am walking evidence that we all have the power and the capabilities to overcome our past and start building a fulfilling, exciting future with our true selves choosing the direction we take.
What I want you to know is that what you are going through right now is not a weakness. You are not ill or broken. You have an amazing opportunity right in front of you, screaming at you that this is your chance to create a remarkable transformation in your life. This is the thing whereby once you overcome this it will prove to you that you can do anything you set your mind to!
“Strength comes from struggle”
“When you learn to see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, wiser, then your thinking shifts from “I can’t do this” to “I must do this”.
I hope that my new business name inspires others to believe in themselves and believe that they CAN resolve whatever is holding them back with the right support, tools and understanding.
