Anne Beaulieu is an Emotional Intelligence Coach, Keynote Speaker, and the author of twenty books. She was always a driven, successful woman who built the perfect image for herself, but deep inside hid a darkness and rage that closed her off from the world.
As a child, Anne experienced horrific emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. A warrior emerged to protect her. She vowed to snuff out her heart and approach everything with cold intellectualism.
At the same time, Anne was addicted to pleasing others. She felt responsible for everyone around her. She was emotionally unhealthy, and this was reflected in all her relationships.
Finally, Anne had no choice but to confront the past and face the darkness. In having healed herself, she now knows how to dip into someone’s pain and walk with them back into the light to live in freedom, peace, and self-love.
In this episode, Anne also gives Omar a live coaching session where we get to witness firsthand how self-limiting beliefs develop, how to find them, and debunk them.
This is a high-energy, breakthrough interview you will not want to miss!
Like so many of us, for decades, I built the ‘perfect’ image and hid from the world. I hid from myself. And I didn’t know that a healthy relationship was.
I thought others might like me ‘less’ if they knew what had happened to me. So, I moved inside my head; I locked myself in an intellectual armor that let no one close to my heart … not even me. Unfortunately, I was far from being emotionally healthy.
Interestingly, that’s how I began to work with my clients. They were wonderful, warm, entrepreneurial, and driven women. However, they too, often didn’t feel safe to be in touch with their hearts. Yet, they wanted to experience a deep, meaningful, healthy relationship with themselves and others.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but I felt I must prove I had the right to exist. I chased diplomas and certifications. Like so many of my clients, I got married, even had kids, and built the white picket fence. I did what I was supposed to do, but I felt empty. Always wondering what was wrong with me since I “had it all.”
It took me a long time to realize that what I needed was to have a healthy relationship with myself first to experience a healthy relationship with others.
All I had to do was to find a way to be loving towards myself!
Easier said than done because, as I said earlier, I locked my heart away, even from myself. I excluded myself from all my relationships!
And like so many of my clients, I had made everyone else a priority, except me.
Still clinging to my intellectual armor for dear life, I finally got tired of going to bed physically exhausted and emotionally drained. I decided to attend an event hosted by a top leadership expert, Dov Baron.
Standing on stage, Dov asked a question that would haunt me for months to come:
“Who are you hurting by playing small?”
