‘Your (socially-distanced) Flight to Happiness’ online course…
I’m writing this post on the fourth anniversary of the publication of my Amazon bestseller ‘Your Flight to Happiness: A 7-Step Journey to Emotional Freedom’. Within a couple of days of being available for sale it reached number 5 in the Amazon UK Popular Psychology bestseller charts – three places under the phenomenal bestseller ‘The Secret’ and one place above my first, much loved, self-help book, ‘Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway’ by Susan Jeffers.
Once upon a time I could not have possibly imagined this happening. Until one day I did… I put a mocked-up image of an ‘Amazon bestseller book by Toni Mackenzie’ on my vision board, with absolutely no idea how that would ever happen and then handed it over to The Universe (God, Source, Highest Self). Step by step, through the ‘Law of Attraction’, synchronicities, opportunities and people came into my life and within two years I became the proud bestselling author of my signature book.
I’m forever grateful to the Universal Intelligence which guided me to that point (and beyond) where I was able to even more widely share the knowledge, wisdom and many growth experiences I’d gained through 20 years of studying, practicing and teaching various forms of therapies and mindset-coaching tools and techniques. Now, in the midst of the life-changing Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, I feel that the time has come to open up to that guidance once again, this time to create ‘Your (socially-distanced) Flight to Happiness: Change Your Mindset and Change Your Life’ online course, based on the seven steps of my book.
The idea of doing this was sparked some time ago but as a result of listening to advice saying that we all need to niche, I was led away from what I truly desired to create. I adapted the contents of my book to create a course aimed at women over 40 who wanted to rebuild their lives after divorce – which is where I once was. It sounded like a good enough plan but with every step I took forward, a stumbling block seemed to appear. Eventually I felt that the direction I was going in just wasn’t right for me and the pilot light went out.
I’m happy to say that I’ve now re-kindled the flame and this time I’m following my heart – just as I did with my book – rather than doing what I’ve been told I ‘should’ do. I banned the word ‘should’ from my vocabulary years ago (replacing it with ‘could’) and while I can see how niching can work well for many, I know it’s just not right for me or my course.
I realised that I really don’t want to base my ideal client, reader, student or coachee on their gender, age or lifestyle because deep down inside, under the surface, people are all just human beings. No matter what gender, age, race, education, financial situation, IQ or social standing, I believe that what everyone wants more than anything is to be happy. So my ideal client or student is someone who isn’t truly happy, really wants to know how they can be, and is ready to do what it takes to make that happen. My book and course teach how to find the happiness you’ve been searching for outside of yourself, by going within and changing your mindset.
In order to be truly happy from the inside out, it’s necessary to learn how to silence your inner critic, know you are ‘good enough’, release your subconscious irrational fears and limiting beliefs, live calmly in the present, develop a positive mental attitude, feel a sense of gratitude, become self-empowered and move forward in your life – and this is precisely what my book and forthcoming course are all about.
