Happiness-An Inside Job
Interview with Anne-Marie Wickham
Since we first met last year, you embraced your great dream, you discovered that you have it all already. Activating the strength, the resilience, the passion within, gave you the courage to reach for the stars, to change the world. You became your passion and now you grow your dream into a reality. What is your Passion?
“My greatest passion is to bringing healing and hope to people who are stuck following trauma or adversity. I offer a pathway to a life renewed though the empowerment of transformation, I work with people applying a range of strategies from hypnotherapy, NLP coaching and mentoring to create a personalised journey to success. I speak publicly about my personal experience’s being born into social care, learning to accept my past, forgive myself and love every aspect of me. I speak my truth, to teach others how to accept, forgive and move through negativity to an empowered and uncompromised future with no limits. I set up my own show ‘Ultimate Confidence’ to give a voice to my clients and other entrepreneurs I meet through my networking to share their untold stories of overcoming adversity and stepping in to their ‘Greatness’. Everybody has a unique and beautiful gift, some people have more than one talent. My show encourages people to speak about finding theirs, to encourage others to explore their own ‘greatness ’and be brave enough to pursue their dreams
As a life- long learner my educational background includes a Foundation degree in Early Years Education and Child Psychology, B.A Honours in Education and Professional Practice, a Diploma in Delivering Presentations and A Master Diploma in Personal Development Life Coaching, a Master Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Master Neuro Linguistic Coaching Diploma.
Your book “Flow” is a guide to Happiness on the path of least resistance. What inspired you to write your book ?
I didn't just write my latest book, I had to learn to live the guide before I could write the book! The book’s chapters are the actual steps into happiness I took myself.
* Stay on your path*
* Do not compare yourself to others*
* Avoid Social Media & Pointless Distractions *
* Like attracts Like*
* Don't chase material things-Practice Forgiveness Every day*
* Begin Every day with Self Love*
* Surround yourself with Happy People*
* Find Your Purpose*
* Live in Gratitude *
As a therapist and truth seeker I found that my studies inadvertently bought me the happiness I had been looking for in my life, by studying other people. I wanted to create a programme that would enable people to start living from the inside out, and not from the outside in. The book is a fast track to the deep connection with your inner self so that you can take control and accountability of your own happiness and create the future you desire on the path of least resistance even whist life goes on around you. My inspiration for all that I have pursued and all that I have achieved is seeking the truth, of who I am, of my purpose here on earth. To find that elusive progressive expanded state of ‘Happiness’
What challenges are you facing?
‘The War on Our Consciousness. Teaching people that ‘happiness, peace, fulfilment, joy – is an INSIDE job. There are no external answers. You fall in love with yourself, truly, madly, deeply and unconditionally. Every person has a desire to be a ‘whole ‘ person
Where do you turn for inspiration and why?
Everything Is Within. We are all one consciousness, from the past, present and future. Meditation, being still and quieting my mind, connects me to the one source. The consciousness is where I truly find all the answers.
