The Art of Convincing Yourself

Clestine Herbert, Purpose Coach, shares three key questions you must say yes to, in order to move forward, regardless of the challenges in your way. She will help you learn to convince yourself get over the fears, do what you need to do but don’t want to do, to propel you forward in your business and life.


Clestine's Story: 

In the Beginning

I was born in Sheffield, England. Shy, insecure, but for a purpose. I had problems speaking to people one-on-one never mind large crowds! But I discovered that your ultimate destiny is written before you are born. Mine included. Life dropped me hints that I was created to empower people through speaking and coaching. Hint #1:  As a little girl when I played with my friends, I always wanted to be the teacher. As shy as I was, I enjoyed getting up in front of my group of friends– instructing, teaching, empowering!  Hint #2:  An Elder of the church I attend told my parents I was going to be a preacher one day.  They laughed but never shared this with me until a few years ago.

Life Trains You Well!

We all have to go through training. Life continued to lead me into rigorous training. There were situations where I had to speak in front of large crowds, small crowds; businesses & churches. Whether I wanted to or not! During this time I discovered that I had a passion for encouraging people, creativity for developing training curriculum, and a wisdom for life that was considered amazingly profound at such a young age. Life also dealt me cards that empowered me, created an independence, boldness, and practicality in me that would be my unique style.

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

The year 2000 became the turning point in my life. I had been an engineer for 8 years by then yet 2 years into my career I had recognized that this was not what God created me for.  I had an empty spot that could not be filled.  After being promoted several times over the years as an engineer in corporate America, that chapter of my life came to an abrupt end! I was informed, along with hundreds of others, that we were going to be laid off! There were four lay-off dates and I was the only one that was laid off on October 27… birthday! (How d’ya like those lemons?). I didn’t cry or get upset but in my spirit realized that this was God’s way of saying “Happy Birthday girl! I have a wonderful gift for you. The gift of purpose!”
