We all have our challenges, our trials and our let-downs and it amazes me how many people I know in my life who come back up kicking and screaming. They don't give up the fight, even when most others would say they have every right to. Bonnie has been an example to me and I love watching her take on the world, giving others the opportunity to have their best life ever.
1. How would you describe yourself?
I am worldly and LOVE life. I seek expansion in experience and knowledge of truth and connection to source. I connect to everything and everyone at a spiritual level. I feel the life of nature and whisper praise to the tree that trust, if it drops its leaves, new ones will grow as the old ones no longer serve it. I can't help but see this as a beautiful example to our human existence. If we trust to let go of what we no longer need, what no longer serves us; the universe will reward us abundantly with greater, but only if we trust at an internal level.
I have been described as steadfast, optimistic, cheerful, wise, passionate, and gifted with wisdom and communication. I feel I have found some of my gifts. However, I trust I still have many more to learn of while I continue to develop the ones I have. I love to have fun, encourage and read to children, laughter, connection, writing. I love to be spontaneous and try new things. (It may just become my new favorite thing)
2. What are your biggest goals and dreams?
I have a goal card that reads, "I am so happy and grateful now that I am a top, one of a kind, international coach, speaker, and author on Human Potential and the Laws of the Universe. I have an extraordinary likeminded team by my side to assist me with ANY and ALL business needs that I have. I easily make $10,000,000 or more net profit with MSI. I generously donate to children's hospitals paying off accounts anonymously, to the MAKE A WISH foundation, and to humanitarian projects around the world.
3. Which is better, sweet or sour? Why?
I have to be honest, I asked my husband for assistance with this one. He is a pro with flavors. He was able to bring to my attention that the body has a physical response to what we eat. I guess I didn't think about this..? LOL
Okay, sour I see as a "shock" experience. It has a tendency to send compulsive shocks to the cheeks causing them to suck in until the eyes have no other choice but bulge from their sockets. As a result, you begin to tear up and massive goosebumps cover the entire body. The skin tightens and tenses to prevent leakage from the rest of the tiny holes that cover our sponge like body... LOL
Sweet is like stepping into a hot bath on a cold winter day. The body instantly covers itself in goosebumps from pleasure vs. shock. I definitely prefer sweet, it's subtle and comforting. The body feels more at ease. ;)
4. What's the biggest misconception about you and why?
That I have it all together.. Life is an ever expansive experience. As a creator, I see potential in many opportunities; as a result I pick many of them up. Task management is a weakness of mine that I am working on improving.
5. What are you passionate about?
Watching people have A-ha moments when I'm coaching or speaking. I LOVE teaching a new way of thinking that many are foreign to that completely transforms lives. There isn't a better feeling than the words of those who you have just given a light to, who have been trapped in a small dark room their entire life... Life is beautiful, especially when you learn HOW you are the creator of the results you get in life. This simple shift in knowledge can change anyone's life.
6. What's the difference between you and most other people?
Well... Really this is tough for me to say. We are all unique with strengths and weaknesses. I suppose the biggest difference is my perspective and awareness I have on life.
7. If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give to your child self?
"Little Bonnie, you will struggle only because through the struggles you will discover your gift. You are SO BEAUTIFUL and absolutely here for a reason. You're NOT a mistake, you're not alone, and you ARE loved! You are safe"
8. Which Hogwarts house would you belong to? Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw? Why?
I have an honest confession to make... I have watched the movies however, not to the point where I actually know the difference between the houses. So, I took it upon myself to do some research for this question. I believe that I would fit well in the Hufflepuff house. If what I have read is accurate, I belong with them because I am tenacious, loyal, open-minded, giving and good hearted; this what I have read them to be.
9. What are you doing in your life to influence the world and/or community?
I am teaching others that their way of thinking is expired and it's time to replace it with a better way that will only flood good in their lives as well as the lives they come into contact to. I think of life as a gigantic puzzle and each human represents a piece of the puzzle. We can't really see what the real picture is yet, though many have an idea of what they THINK it is. Regardless of what the real picture is, we all have to touch each other somehow to reveal the picture. I will touch the pieces around me and influence them to touch the pieces around them. We're all in this together.
10. Is there a part of your past that taught you a valuable lesson? If so, will you tell us your story?
I used to be (about 6 years ago) very manipulative, always trying to get things from other. I felt that I couldn't get it myself, I didn't know how or didn't have the money. As the woman I am today, I know that there is no good feeling in making others pity you. There is NOTHING to gain from this. There is however, an incredible feeling knowing that everything I have now, I've earned; I DID IT! The exception to this is a gift of course. I won't lie, I enjoy unexpected gifts and surprises!
11. Who is your hero and why?
Gosh, who is my hero? I have never thought of this either... You know, about 5 years ago I read a book called No Matter What by Lisa Nichols. After I read this book I set all of my passwords to No Matter What B 2015 and made the decision that 2015 was going to be my BIG year. Lisa inspired me to begin living the way I desired to without limitation. I began an incredible journey and began to fall in love with myself and life. In December 2014 I had a moment where I expressed with great passion my desire to help people through my experiences. I desired to speak, coach, write and travel. I made the decision to get a coach even though I didn't have the money. I tried several banks that denied me for a loan. The last place I called approved me. I got a loan to pay her $3000. I was scared but knew I needed to stop tip toeing through life, I was bigger than that. I needed to get uncomfortable so I could grow and aspire to my truest self. It dawned on me January 4th when I was putting in my password, that it was 2015; my BIG year!
I have begun coaching, speaking, writing and have traveled to London, Canada, Utah and Arizona. I have met and now work with Bob Proctor. The interesting thing about that is, #32 on my 101 goals before I die, reads "meet and work with Bob Proctor." I write this list after I read No Matter What. Everyday my life looks more and more like my dream life.
Aside from Lisa, my personal hero would have to be my Dad. He has immense faith in me and my dream. He has never stopped encouraging me and is my biggest fan.
12. If you had one year to live, what would you do?
I would get family pictures taken while experiencing life! No more traditional "everyone pose" style. I would get a photographer to follow us around. Bungee jumping in New Zealand, skydiving, while water rafting, scuba diving, kayaking with whales, and cliff diving and such... After about 6 months or so of living crazy life, I would relax; beach, mountains, and just be with my family.
13. Do you have any creative ideas that you would like to share with the world?
Everything I am doing is creative self being expressed. Right now, all my creativity is in the message I share.
14. What risk would you take if you knew you could not fail?
Well, I suppose I would not be risking anything if I KNEW I couldn't fail... ;) Keeping life VERY interesting when the physical eye see IMPOSSIBLE is something I naturally do. I don't see IMPOSSIBLE, I see IM-POSSIBLE.
15. What animal would best describe you and why?
I would have to say a dolphin. They're vibrant, intuitive, playful, and harmonious. I see these characteristics prominent in myself. When I think of the dolphin, I think of freedom, happiness, and oneness; these are important to me.
16. What is your biggest strength?
My biggest strength would have to be my radiant smile. It displays trust, kindness, authenticity, vibrancy and really helps my confidence and my ability to connect with others.
17. What kind of friend do you believe yourself to be?
I am the optimistic advisor. I'm the friend that others go to for new insight on challenging situations. I often hear my friends say, "what would Bonnie do" or "How would Bonnie explain this?"
18. If you had to choose between being Erin in the movie, Erin Brockovich or Elle Woods in the movie, Legally Blonde, who would you choose and why?
Erin Brockovich for sure! I find her more bold and courageous.
19. What is your perception of the world?
World... What a fascinating word full of mystery... I believe that everything is as it needs to be if we see the purpose for it or not. This does not mean that I like everything that I know happens in the world. I believe we're here to gain experience and to become. I choose to see and think of beauty, expansion, and creator when I think of the world.
20. If you could change one thing and one thing only about the people of this world, what would it be and why?
Definitely their way of thinking! We complain about life and think "this is just the things go for me." The truth is, we create our life one thought at a time. We are vibrational beings that attract to us whatever we get emotionally involved with and believe to be true. The shift needs to be what we're focused on. If we don't like our current circumstances but continue to dwell on them, we will continue to get MORE of the same circumstances. We need to dream and think of what it is we desire. Once we do this, we begin to create new circumstances that reflect our dreams and desires! Our focus needs to shift!
21. We are always making choices. Are you choosing for your story or for someone else's?
I definitely am making my own choices, ALWAYS... With everything in my life, I know now that it's always been my choice to allow others to influence me and make me feel a certain way. Or to choose the pictures and words I desire for my autobiography. It is true that I have to do checks sometimes and ask myself, "am I allowing this person to control me? Do I really want this?"
Where to connect more with Bonnie:
I'm in the business of helping people reach their highest potential through a positive mental attitude. With my study in positive psychology, personal development and growth, as well as being mentored by one of the world's best in this field, I have tools and a system to help people achieve far more than they ever dreamed of achieving.
