I Didn’t Order That!

I admire women who return to school in midlife. Mothers, wives and business women who volunteer and care for their elderly parents, their days are already filled to capacity, their lives overflowing with responsibilities. Yet they seek out the best colleges with the most stringent requirements and toughest courses knowing that that is what it takes to succeed. They willingly forgo the luxuries of life knowing the end result will surely benefit them.

Young athletes desiring to become Olympic gold medalists participate in long, grueling hours of training – sore muscles, torn ligaments, sprains and fractures all a part of the process. Their lives revolve around one goal and one goal only: to be the best athlete in their field.

Small business owners work 80 hour work weeks for years yielding little financial reward. They make tremendous sacrifices anticipating the day when their business will turn over a substantial profit.

In each of these examples, people are willing to endure tremendous sacrifice, suffering, challenges, and deprivation in order to reap the ultimate rewards.

Those wanting to be the best are willing to go above and beyond, to give more than others, to accept any challenge. Determined to reach their goal they rarely complain. Though tired and stressed, they continually challenge themselves to do more in order to have more.

In life, the ultimate reward is not in having more (money, degrees, possessions) but rather in becoming more. In order to fulfill your potential and be the absolute best you can be you must be willing to face and accept life’s greatest challenges. And providing those challenges are some of life’s toughest coaches: the spouse who betrayed you; the boss who unfairly fired you; the jealous friend who ruined your reputation; the addiction; the illness; the financial loss.

Few people I know graciously accept these people or circumstances into their lives. When faced with unfairness, loss or injustice, they complain “This isn’t fair! I didn’t ask for this. I don’t deserve this!”

Many will seek to hold someone accountable and blame for their circumstances rather than embrace the very opportunity that can bring them to personal greatness. Tragically, they fail to understand that within every hardship lies a great lesson.

This person or situation has appeared to benefit them and once the challenge is met and overcome, they emerge victorious.

It matters not whether we consciously chose our circumstances or have life hand them to us unexpectedly. The manner in which we learn life’s lessons matters little. It matters more that we recognize each opportunity for what it is and learn anyway. Embrace all of your teachers, no matter how difficult they are. In the end, you will reap life’s richest rewards and become a person of excellence.

January Jones welcomes Dr. Nancy Irwin

January Jones welcomes Nancy B. Irwin, PsyD, C.Ht Bio

Nancy B Irwin

“As a therapeutic hypnotist and doctor of psychology, I know for a fact that we are all born to win. We learn to fail, and what we learn, we can un-learn.  Therefore, I work to clear away the  negative programming, undesirable  habits, and limiting beliefs to free the  inner winner in my clients.”

Dr. Nancy Irwin graduated from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, California with honors and the Director’s Award. She is a member of the Hypnotists’ Union, the California Psychological Association, the American Academy for Experts in Traumatic Stress, and the California Coalition on Sexual Offending (CCOSO).

Dr. Irwin is also a certified practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming,Time Line Therapy and Emotion Free Therapy, combining these modalities with hypnosis to effect the most rapid change possible in her clients. While Dr. Irwin treats over 100 different issues, she is dedicated to treating victims of child sexual abuse as well as abusers.

In addition to earning a doctorate in psychology from Southern California University of Professional Studies, Nancy has a Master of Music degree in Opera Performance, and her background as an opera singer and stand-up comedian adds heart and humor to her healing. A popular keynote speaker she insists, “Change does not have to hurt!”

In her own words, Dr. Irwin says, “I believe every child’s birthright is that his or her sexuality Nancy Irwin as a Childwill blossom in its own time. Sexual abuse thwarts that right.

With all humility, I wish there had been someone like me around when I needed help. We, fortunately, live in terribly exciting times when this issue is ‘out of the closet’ and help is readily available.

I can’t remember a time when music wasn’t a part of my life; indeed I believe I’m a connoisseur of beautiful sounds. And there is nothing on earth more exquisite than the sound of children’s laughter. We can heal and find that happy, loving child within us again … that child who simply wants to celebrate the joy of living.”
