In her 20s, Shannon Kaiser had everything a twenty-something could ask for. A steady job, an abundant source of income, a man who wanted to marry her, and lived in a flat that was better than what most her age can afford. Despite all the success, Shannon wasn't happy. Suffering with bouts of depression, struggling with an addiction to pain killers and a diagnosis of clinical depression, Shannon would often times find herself sobbing with sadness and frustration.
During one difficult bout of depression, Shannon believed her heard an inner voice say, “You have everything you need. Follow your heart.” It was a pivotal moment. . Realizing she wasn’t being true to herself, she was with a man she didn’t want to marry, and had a job that drained the life out of her she radically changed her mindset, quit her day job and now, her life’s purpose is to help others feel alive, the same way she does today.
Today, Shannon inspires us with her journey, and what it truly means to follow your heart. Shannon explains why it’s important to visualize the future version of yourself and offers advice on using our fears to propel us to a higher plane.
