223. Through Life’s “Negatives” She Grasps the Mastery of Wellness
Michelle Powell is the author of the bestselling book The Mastery of Wellness and has been in the health industry since 2003. She is internationally qualified as a holistic health practitioner and inner wellness specialist. Michelle calls upon her personal and professional experiences to help each individual to reclaim their wellbeing and happiness. She firmly believes that one size does not fit all, and coaches each individual with careful attention to their unique needs, circumstances and goals.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“As a young 18-year-old, I started my journey in the health industry, and that’s what really got me going. It was my early experiences, which most people would perceive as quite negative and scary. I had a very difficult upbringing, and by the age of 13 I had started developing an eating disorder, which progressed all the way through my teens into my early twenties. That was actually one of my biggest turning points, because I wanted to get myself well.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“To be honest, I really feel like my entire life has brought me to where I am, and I’m exceptionally grateful for what many people would call ‘negative’ life experiences, because that’s made me a better coach, because it’s not just about formal qualification. It’s about life experience, too.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“I’ve seen first-hand how things don’t create happiness. It comes from within. You’ve got to find what it is that makes you passionate and excited every day. What is it you would do, if you could do absolutely anything in the world?”
