Imagine working in accounting for 16 plus years and one day, changing it all to start a venture of your own! That journey is exactly what Vanamala Mayr-Reisch in Australia shares with us today.
What it Feels Like to Find Success in a Dream
Vanamala’s commitment is one of inspiration for anyone who wants to know what it feels like to find success in a dream.
Vanamala’s introduction to Face Yoga may sound familiar to yours; she wanted to reduce or reverse and prevent the signs of aging, without botox or fillers. This mission plus her love of working with people were the fuel she needed to make a dramatic change in her life and join the Teacher Certification Course (TCC).
Since graduating in Spring of 2018, Vanamala has conquered her biggest challenges as a newly certified Face Yoga Method Teacher. She shares her scariest moments, “to go out and tell everyone about my new career. It was scary to make the transition from a very successful business to a brand-new business.”
A Combination of Factors That Helped Vanamala Get Through Challenges
The first were her husband and her friends and family who would “listen when I had doubts and put things in perspective”. They also attended her classes and were present for her along the way.
The second being “the unwavering support of our close FYM community. Whenever I felt down, there was someone in the FYM community, who would encourage me.”
But ultimately, it was her tenacity which kept her going “even if there were moments when I wanted to give up.”
As no novice to starting a new career, she says it was a cumulation of all of life events which helped her persevere through the toughest moments.
Vanamala measures her success mainly on her reach, but she knows that no accomplishment is too small. From receiving clients from an ad in the paper or social media to a recent Skype session with someone in Papua New Guinea (awesome!), she keeps her eye on growth and wants to see more people in her classes!
Vanamala’s words of wisdom to you:
“Believe in what you do. Face Yoga is such a profound and powerful process, you can be proud of it as a Face Yoga Method teacher.
Be kind to yourself and acknowledge your little successes. When you hit a wall and can’t see a way out, stop, take a break and be kind to yourself. Always remember why you want to do it.”
