Mental Wellness Through Awareness of Thought

  • Mental illness can be called the invisible illness. Often, the only way to know whether someone has been diagnosed with a mental illness is if they tell you. Throughout her athletic and coaching career, Georgette has seen firsthand the damage that neglecting your mental (as well as physical and emotional) health can do. Georgette aims to enlighten participants, so they can leave with a better understanding and knowledge of mental health-related issues.

    “A person cannot cling to anything unless she believes in it; belief always precedes action, therefore a person’s deeds and life are the fruits of her belief.”

    This presentation draws awareness to the power of our thoughts…both good and not-so-good. Thoughts are powerful and negative thoughts if left too long, can derail even the best of intentions

    Did You Know That…

    • “Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body.”
    • Only 16 percent of people who visit their physician for common maladies like nausea, headache and stomach upset are diagnosed with a physical, organic cause. That means that a whopping 84% are suffering from an illness that originated in THOUGHT! The evidence suggests that in most cases today we are thinking and talking our way to sickness and disease

    Since belief always precedes action, simply changing your beliefs can change your actions to those that will result in living our wildest dreams — like being an Olympian. Georgette’s presentation will take you through some of these steps and assist you in being able to shift your thoughts and perspectives.

Georgette, the presentation you gave will stay with me, I know, my entire life, and I am grateful beyond words. One of the most significant moments of during your presentation was when you told everyone about the girl who died after you inspired her and became her hero. I am positive that the entire audience was inspired that day and that they walked away with more confidence than before.

Georgette, no matter how many speeches I will hear, I will always remember yours. Thank you for making a difference in my life. You had a warm vibe, were interactive and you had a powerful message.
