It was through the experience of being a hairstylist for many years that I knew that I wanted to serve people. I just didn’t know what that would look like after I retired.

After her world was turned upside down, Stacy was determined not to let anything unravel her life’s purpose of serving others. Read how she found connection and hope in the Jay Shetty community.

I am a 61-year-old wife, mother of 3, grandmother of 7, and I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I guess I’m a little bit older than your average person starting a new career, but I had been searching for something for a while that would truly fulfill my desire to serve others in a structured way. I found that in the Jay Shetty Certification School and now as a Life and Wellness Coach for the mind, body and spirit. I serve all people, but have a deep desire to focus on helping those with chronic pain and illness. What I have found is that the people who want a change in their lives and seek out my services are finding a new way of seeing their authentic selves through the tools I’ve learned, both in life and especially in the disciplines I learned in school.

It was through the experience of being a hairstylist for many years that I knew that I wanted to serve people. I just didn’t know what that would look like after I retired. Then I found Jay Shetty, who has such vision and passion and also happens to be a Life Coach. I searched through many life coaching programs and they just didn’t seem to fit what I was looking for. They didn’t offer the deep spiritual connection that is my lifeline.

My world turned upside down

As a Genius Community member, I’ve found a bond with people from all over the world that continues to revolutionize my life every day. One Sunday during a live broadcast, Jay announced the opening of the Jay Shetty Certification School. I knew Jay’s teachings and messages, and I knew this was where I was meant to be. I signed up immediately and very shortly thereafter, my world turned upside down twice.

The day before school was to start, I found out that our home had been sold.  In the agreement of the sale, we had less than a week to be packed and moved. I was shattered by both the move from the home I was not ready to say goodbye to and the concern of not getting through school as I had planned. I was very thankful, however, that we already had a house to move into though it was still under renovation.


On March 9, 2020, even as I was still reeling from news of this move, I started my studies while I packed. I was determined that I would not let anything unravel my life’s purpose. We moved on March 11th and to be honest, I’m still not completely unpacked!

In all the chaos of the mess of moving and working the certification program, I faced the second and by far the most difficult lesson of my life. I realized that being the “live and let live” hippie kind of mom I wanted to be to  give my children freedom to express themselves as people, ended up having consequences as they have become adults. Two of them are extremely disrespectful, using very hurtful and cruel words to me. They had learned how to manipulate me, and I had allowed their words to destroy my self-confidence. I had been allowing them to talk me down to the lowest of lows and I didn’t even recognize it until I got into the ABC’s Framework.

I became, as I said, aware of the way they were treating me, and I did an audit on my life. I learned that giving them such freedom had been the product of my having been raised in an extremely strict home. I went the opposite direction with my kids. I had to face that and take accountability for my actions that didn’t just hurt me but worse, hurt my kids. I made the decision that as my own big goal, I had to stop this in its tracks in the only way I knew how, which was by distancing myself from them.

I’m now being the mom I should have been

I had to build a new habit to begin talking kindly to myself, even though I sometimes felt I didn’t deserve it. During this time, I used a lot of balanced reflection, and still do as I look at where I was, and where I am now. By remaining consistent in my actions, I cannot say that it has changed them, but it has certainly changed me and reduced the feelings of loss that I have felt. I still struggle sometimes because I am challenging my comfort level.

I’m being the mom I should have been, and that goes against years of being the “old” me. I have even reached a sort of competence mastery, though I do go back through the ABC’s because I live them daily. Working this framework has personally given me a deep and unique knowledge to guide my clients with care through the ABC’s, knowing how challenging and even uncomfortable it can be. 

As I’ve gone through these things, this hasn’t been an easy time in my life by any means, but I’ve learned so much in school and I have survived- no I have thrived through it all! It has ended up being the most enlightening experience I have ever had. I feel so grateful for all of it because it has taught me that I am a very capable, caring, strong and compassionate woman and Life Coach. I’ve learned that when the river of life tries to get in the way, make your own flow and get on with living!

I found myself burnt out… and not in the cute way. One bubble bath and dark chocolate square would not wash my troubles away. A cortisol-induced knot had set up shop in my solar plexus. Pulling myself out of bed was a battle I would often lose.

“The coaching thing feels right,” JC thought when she decided to live through her heart and use her experience of getting out of a dark hole to heal others. Read about JC’s journey to and in the Jay Shetty Certification School.

“Wait a second…” Her jaw drops. Astonishment sweeps her face. I witness her clouds part and see her light shine through. My client then exclaims, “I just had a massive realization!” Moments like this are appearing more frequently in my life. This coaching thing feels right.

My permanent note to self: trust the process. From a mindset affixed to limiting beliefs, to one vibrating with abundance, this is the story of an internal transformation. What does a daily dose of Jay Shetty, our favorite modern monk, result in? For me, it was the ability to build a ladder, and step-by-step, climb out of the hole I was in.

Nowadays, I help others to heal. I am living through my heart. My pull to serve supersedes the need to feed my ego. My compelling vision outweighs my insecurities, and I show up fully to life. With a mindset wired to fear, how on earth did I end up here? 

Although rock bottom has a particularly dramatic ring, I cannot say that’s how my story goes. For years, my internal gear shift was stuck. With no owner’s manual for reference, I attempted to release it by avoiding, numbing out, and applying sheer force.

I found myself burnt out… and not in the cute way. One bubble bath and dark chocolate square would not wash my troubles away. A cortisol-induced knot had set up shop in my solar plexus. Pulling myself out of bed was a battle I would often lose. 

I had fallen victim to society's perpetual myth: external power wins out. Status, image, and wealth are prized as be-all-end-all destinations, found on the other side of just one more achievement. 


I figured if I could manufacture a constant stream of approval, my mental saboteurs would have no place to grab hold. I created a social media projection so shiny it would burn envy into the eyes of all those scrolling by. What I ended up with was a thick bubble of imposter syndrome. I dreaded the moment it would burst, so I pushed all true connection away.

After all the striving, I was face down in the grass that was no greener. It felt like life had lied to me. No matter how hard I played the game, I could never win.

Study up! Learn how to be better! Oh, how I dove deep into self-development. Isn’t it funny how the next realization is that you’re not good enough at “feeling good?” As the saying goes, seeing that your lack of abundance is truly an abundance of lack? I thought I had to change instantaneously; make one sweeping decision to release all negativity and never look back. It seemed like unless you’ve risen at 5 a.m. sharp, braved your cold shower, meditated effortlessly, and journalled your gratitude, then you’d have no right to complain.

I’m the type who loves to plan, but delays on execution. Always frozen in over-analysis. This is where I found Jay Shetty’s approach to be different from other thought-leaders. He held the key to transforming my awareness into action. 

With Jay’s content, I felt like I had someone at my side, helping me to show up each day. Jay knows that it's more than the wisdom itself; it's absorbing it again and again. It's taking small steps and making them big priorities. It is truly a day-by-day process. Jay understands this. That's why he's constantly creating resources and reminding us of the bigger picture. He gives us that fuel. 

From his On Purpose podcast to his “Live your Passion, Build an Income” program, to his Genius community, and the Jay Shetty Certification School, I’ve had many light bulb moments along the way. I was thrilled to learn that “purpose” was not some far off destination. In actuality, I could shift and realign to tune into the purpose already within me. I was deeply reassured by understanding that my preference for a slower pace matters. What a relief to allow my introversion, softness, and reflective nature to be strengths instead of weaknesses. I replaced self-punishment with self-compassion, and that has transformed all my interactions in life.

With Jay’s virtual encouragement and my subsequent internal exploration, the grime on my consciousness began to loosen. Then, it started to wash away, revealing gold underneath. I now inhabit the skills of my personality that align with the purpose of my soul. I am inspired by the way Jay coached me one lesson at a time. My growth is a direct result of showing up and sticking with it. Now I’m ready to be that support for others. 

Jay Shetty has a mission to collectively transform one billion lives. I am energized to contribute my part. I am a reception tower channelling a higher frequency. I trust the process. I'm rising up, affecting those around me with my vibrational lift. I am thankful to Jay Shetty for helping to guide me through the peaks and valleys of this journey. Jay’s purpose in life rings so true. It has woken me up, and fuelled me to move forward. As a coach, I now intend to help others find their own path. Together we move forward, one step at a time.

Let me tell you, none of this has come easy. I come from a humble upbringing, I know real hard work and hustle all too well, I have had my fair share of breakups and heartbreaks.

Hi there, Kusum here from “Passion Purpose Passport.”

I am:

• a Woman of Passion with a Purpose

• a Dreamer, Thinker, Doer, and Goal Digger

• a Self-Development and Personal Growth Junkie

• a Teacher & a Student, both at the same time

• a Mom, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend, and Confidant

• an Undergraduate in Engineering (Bangalore, India)

• a Graduate in Telecommunications Management (Boston, USA)

• a former Business Analyst & Project Manager (New York City, USA) • a current Blogger, Digital Content Creator, Global Brand Promoter (Seattle, USA) 

• a recent Life Coach, Certified by the one & only Jay Shetty Certification School (GLOBAL) 


Now, my intention isn’t to cite my resume or brag about my “accomplishments” here, but to simply showcase that, as Melissa McClone said, “life takes you places but love brings you home,” both literally & figuratively!

As a Jay Shetty Certified coach, I am finally home!

Life was everything that happened to me and for me before I became a Jay Shetty School Certified Life Coach. This, my friends, is my ultimate LOVE. I am finally HOME!!!


Let me tell you, none of this has come easy. I come from a humble upbringing, I know real hard work and hustle all too well, I have had my fair share of breakups and heartbreaks, I have gone against the opinions of many people, and I have always challenged the status quo and done things on my own terms. I have questioned my choices and decisions way more times than I can count. The list really goes on and on and on.

The bottom line is, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and struggles: every single one of us has them all.

But what “makes or breaks it” is our individual perspective about it all and how we utilise these four categories to empower ourselves and blow away the cobwebs while also lending a hand to others who are a few steps behind us or even ahead of us!

Bet on yourself because you are worth it!

If I can do it, so can YOU — DREAM BIG, and no matter how vague they seem at the moment your dreams are worth pursuing, so “BET ON YOURSELF” because YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Do you want to let go of those limiting beliefs and uncover your true hidden potential?

Are you your own biggest competition? Do you aspire to become a better version of yourself?

Do you have big ideas and goals but feel stuck and intimidated to take the plunge?

Are you willing to do the work, but feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin?

Whether it is personal, professional, health and wellness, relationship, spiritual, or any other area of your life, if you have the dreams (big or small), then I strongly believe that you also have the means.

Are you ready to meet your higher self?

If you don't feel pumped about who you are, and if you don't feel over the moon excited about your dreams and possibilities, then why should anyone else be? If you are not invested in your own goals and dreams, then why should anyone else even care?

So, enough with all the excuses you have been giving yourself.

Having “been there, done that,” I know all too well what it takes and am also aware of what gets in the way.

If you are ready to take the next step, then I am here to empower you to embark on the most powerful journey to live your best life – one that is happy, driven, purposeful, and fulfilling! 

Question is, are you ready and fully committed to meet your higher self?

Toni Adams

I have had to learn many things about myself over the years, which include bringing perspective to my life, living as a diabetic and an alcoholic. From these life experiences, I realized that this life I live is not about me but, instead, is about serving others.

After many years of lost perspective on what was important in her life, Toni found her purpose after much soul-searching deep within, and invested in herself so that she could share her gift of caring with military veterans and their families. Read her story about courage and redemption.

Hi! My name is Toni Adams and I am here to share my experience, strength, and hopes with you related to the magnificent journey I went through in obtaining my Jay Shetty Life Coaching certification. As a certified life coach, I not only actively seek to help my clients have a better understanding of the circumstances they wish to change, but also to ensure the changes being made will last a lifetime. In addition to the formal instruction I have received, I am able to draw from life experiences as a recovering alcoholic over the past 30 years and managing childhood Type 1 diabetes.

Finding my purpose was not easy.

I have had to learn many things about myself over the years, which include bringing perspective to my life, living as a diabetic and an alcoholic. From these life experiences, I realized that this life I live is not about me but, instead, is about serving others. My realization did not come from a book I read nor from being able to turn to someone to give me the answer as to what my purpose might be.  I had to find it by looking within myself over the years and what I needed to do once I found it. Given the many ups and downs I experienced, it was not easy! In fact, it took considerable exploration to learn who I am as a person, what my role in life would be, and what would make me happy.


Change is always possible!

I became aware the happiness I sought through pursuing the “good things in life” would not be from the materialistic world. One of the first things I came to realize in the Jay Shetty Certified Life Coach course is that my ability to affect the lives of others in a meaningful way would bring me the “good things in life” that I was seeking and would truly make me happy. Unbeknownst to me, prior to taking the course, was that I possessed the insights and abilities within me to help others as a life coach. For instance, my capacity for empathy helps clients become less stuck in their lives by helping them look at themselves in less judgmental ways. In addition, drawing from my own experiences that change is always possible, I believe I have created encouraging environments for my clients to make important changes in their lives.

Helping military veterans find their value is my calling.

Understanding what it means to be overlooked and feel disenfranchised based on my past life experiences, the opportunity to role play with military veterans as part of my training with the Jay Shetty Certified Life Coach course led to me finding a calling. In the years to come, I will be working with military veterans and their family members to help them “become all they can be” in their lives as civilians. The course has provided me the gift of recognizing how I can give back to a very deserving group of individuals.   

Life is a wonderful thing when you know what it is that you are meant to do! I do it, because I’m worth it!

DONNA BURFIELD

blu_marks1.png blu_marks2.png

My new mission became, 'How can I help and serve others?'  So, I became a life coach. I am immensely proud of the woman and mother I am today.

Since the age of 17, I have worked with children in an array of jobs such as au-pair, nanny, Montessori teacher, freelance writer, Camps International Assistant, Teachers assistant, and Learning Support teacher in a secondary school. 

As a divorced woman of 8 years, a mother of 3, not so little children now, and living in the Middle East, I know what it feels like to have your world turned upside down. I know how difficult it is to find joy and purpose when you are worried about your children's mental and physical health, trying to juggle a full-time job, concerned about money and all the while your health is suffering - everything and I mean EVERYTHING can become overwhelming.

Finding what brings brought me joy and what gives my life meaning elevated me to a whole new level. I learned that there was so much unseen potential in me, but I had buried it away and allowed others to dictate how I should live, act, and feel. I was the only one who could make those changes. So, I did. 

Who am I ?... What legacy do I want to leave my children? ... Where do I start? ... What and who do I want to be? These were some of the questions crashing around in my head. I felt overwhelmed, alone, and unequipped.

The first thing I did was assess my current situation. I researched and devoured books, videos, courses for understanding self-worth, confidence, and overcoming a narcissistic relationship. I dug deep into my childhood, past relationships, and limiting beliefs. I looked for patterns ... anything!

I also looked at my strengths and my mindset. I started to embrace those strengths and qualities and slowly started to disassociate myself from toxic relationships, changed jobs, and made 'joy' a priority. I became mentally and physically stronger. I was ready to let the past go. I began to dream again.

Then in a space of three months, I came across two courses that would change my life forever. Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi's, Knowledge Blueprint Brokers (KBB) and Jay Shetty's Certification School.

My new mission became, 'How can I help and serve others?'  So, I became a life coach. I am immensely proud of the woman and mother I am today.

After her world was turned upside down, Stacy was determined not to let anything unravel her life’s purpose of serving others. Read how she found connection and hope in the Jay Shetty community.

The bottom line is, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and struggles: every single one of us has them all.

But what “makes or breaks it” is our individual perspective about it all and how we utilise these four categories to empower ourselves and blow away the cobwebs while also lending a hand to others who are a few steps behind us or even ahead of us!

Bet on yourself because you are worth it!

If I can do it, so can YOU — DREAM BIG, and no matter how vague they seem at the moment your dreams are worth pursuing, so “BET ON YOURSELF” because YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Do you want to let go of those limiting beliefs and uncover your true hidden potential?

Are you your own biggest competition? Do you aspire to become a better version of yourself?

Do you have big ideas and goals but feel stuck and intimidated to take the plunge?

Are you willing to do the work, but feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin?

Whether it is personal, professional, health and wellness, relationship, spiritual, or any other area of your life, if you have the dreams (big or small), then I strongly believe that you also have the means.

Are you ready to meet your higher self?

If you don't feel pumped about who you are, and if you don't feel over the moon excited about your dreams and possibilities, then why should anyone else be? If you are not invested in your own goals and dreams, then why should anyone else even care?

So, enough with all the excuses you have been giving yourself.

Having “been there, done that,” I know all too well what it takes and am also aware of what gets in the way.

If you are ready to take the next step, then I am here to empower you to embark on the most powerful journey to live your best life – one that is happy, driven, purposeful, and fulfilling! 

Question is, are you ready and fully committed to meet your higher self?

Toni Adams

After many years of lost perspective on what was important in her life, Toni found her purpose after much soul-searching deep within, and invested in herself so that she could share her gift of caring with military veterans and their families. Read her story about courage and redemption.

Hi! My name is Toni Adams and I am here to share my experience, strength, and hopes with you related to the magnificent journey I went through in obtaining my Jay Shetty Life Coaching certification. As a certified life coach, I not only actively seek to help my clients have a better understanding of the circumstances they wish to change, but also to ensure the changes being made will last a lifetime. In addition to the formal instruction I have received, I am able to draw from life experiences as a recovering alcoholic over the past 30 years and managing childhood Type 1 diabetes.

Finding my purpose was not easy.

I have had to learn many things about myself over the years, which include bringing perspective to my life, living as a diabetic and an alcoholic. From these life experiences, I realized that this life I live is not about me but, instead, is about serving others. My realization did not come from a book I read nor from being able to turn to someone to give me the answer as to what my purpose might be.  I had to find it by looking within myself over the years and what I needed to do once I found it. Given the many ups and downs I experienced, it was not easy! In fact, it took considerable exploration to learn who I am as a person, what my role in life would be, and what would make me happy.

Change is always possible!

I became aware the happiness I sought through pursuing the “good things in life” would not be from the materialistic world. One of the first things I came to realize in the Jay Shetty Certified Life Coach course is that my ability to affect the lives of others in a meaningful way would bring me the “good things in life” that I was seeking and would truly make me happy. Unbeknownst to me, prior to taking the course, was that I possessed the insights and abilities within me to help others as a life coach. For instance, my capacity for empathy helps clients become less stuck in their lives by helping them look at themselves in less judgmental ways. In addition, drawing from my own experiences that change is always possible, I believe I have created encouraging environments for my clients to make important changes in their lives.

Helping military veterans find their value is my calling.

Understanding what it means to be overlooked and feel disenfranchised based on my past life experiences, the opportunity to role play with military veterans as part of my training with the Jay Shetty Certified Life Coach course led to me finding a calling. In the years to come, I will be working with military veterans and their family members to help them “become all they can be” in their lives as civilians. The course has provided me the gift of recognizing how I can give back to a very deserving group of individuals.   

Life is a wonderful thing when you know what it is that you are meant to do! I do it, because I’m worth it!

DONNA BURFIELD

Since the age of 17, I have worked with children in an array of jobs such as au-pair, nanny, Montessori teacher, freelance writer, Camps International Assistant, Teachers assistant, and Learning Support teacher in a secondary school. 

As a divorced woman of 8 years, a mother of 3, not so little children now, and living in the Middle East, I know what it feels like to have your world turned upside down. I know how difficult it is to find joy and purpose when you are worried about your children's mental and physical health, trying to juggle a full-time job, concerned about money and all the while your health is suffering - everything and I mean EVERYTHING can become overwhelming.

Finding what brings brought me joy and what gives my life meaning elevated me to a whole new level. I learned that there was so much unseen potential in me, but I had buried it away and allowed others to dictate how I should live, act, and feel. I was the only one who could make those changes. So, I did. 

Who am I ?... What legacy do I want to leave my children? ... Where do I start? ... What and who do I want to be? These were some of the questions crashing around in my head. I felt overwhelmed, alone, and unequipped.

The first thing I did was assess my current situation. I researched and devoured books, videos, courses for understanding self-worth, confidence, and overcoming a narcissistic relationship. I dug deep into my childhood, past relationships, and limiting beliefs. I looked for patterns ... anything!

I also looked at my strengths and my mindset. I started to embrace those strengths and qualities and slowly started to disassociate myself from toxic relationships, changed jobs, and made 'joy' a priority. I became mentally and physically stronger. I was ready to let the past go. I began to dream again.

Then in a space of three months, I came across two courses that would change my life forever. Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi's, Knowledge Blueprint Brokers (KBB) and Jay Shetty's Certification School.

My new mission became, 'How can I help and serve others?'  So, I became a life coach. I am immensely proud of the woman and mother I am today.
