My Story & Why I Do What I Do!
Hello! I’m Jody Myciak!!
I'm an entrepreneur, writer, wife, mother of two, a life-learner and I have a deep passion to help you build a deeper loving relationship with yourself, so you can have the confidence to create the life you most want to have.
I help women embrace who they are right here and now, so they can put their best authentic-self forward. I truly believes it all starts with building a deeper, loving relationship with yourself; providing your dream life with a solid foundation.
I understand the importance of doings things that light you up. I'm here to help you rediscover your dreams, take action, and bring passion and confidence back into your life.
I myself have had many struggles and challenges. I grew up in a very, very small town in Ontario, Canada where I spent a lot of time daydreaming about things I wanted to do, places I wanted to see - anything that would take me away from the life I was living in. I’m the oldest of four children and with both parents working full-time, I spent my afternoons looking after my siblings. I also grew up watching my mother do everything for everyone else.
As I got older I realized that it’s amazing to have a mother who loves us so much that she’ll do anything for her children, but it’s also important for mothers to realize how much they matter and to love themselves just as much - or even a little bit more - than their own children.
There was a point in my life where I would have thought this was selfish - how could I love myself more than my own children? Now I have come to understand you can’t truly love until you love yourself. It’s not selfish; it’s having self-respect and knowing that you matter.
I have come a long away…I spent most of my teenage years and early twenties full of anger and sadness. Always putting on a mask to fit in to different circles, always wanting to please everyone. I feel like a lot of people didn’t actually know the real me back then; only a handful of people who I felt safe around.
Keeping my emotions and feelings inside caused a number of things to happen. I was pushing so many feelings down that eventually it was like a volcano erupting and I would blow up at the people closest to me. Throughout these years I also struggled with depression and went to some very dark places.
I now understand that this is what happens when you keep your feelings locked up inside. It’s not until we dig deep and discover why we feel the way we do, that we can really let go of those feelings that keep us stuck in a low emotional state.
I also had a hard time with love. The word "love" didn’t really cross my lips until I was in my early twenties and even then it felt strange to me. I was always looking for love, and never in the right place.
As I look back at those years, I realize a lot of the guys I liked, I liked before I even got to know them. I just thought if I could get a boyfriend then I would matter…turns out years later, I found the love I was looking for - it was there all along - it was inside myself.
When I realized that I already mattered and anything I ever needed was right there within me, I manifested the man of my dreams. We are now married and have two amazing children, along with two cuddly cats.
Another turning point in my life is when I realized that what I really wanted to do with my life was to help other women, through fashion, fitness and most importantly to help them feel like they matter. This is when I came across the S.W.A.T. Institute (which was a wonderful journey in itself). This is where I learned even more about myself and had some big awakenings.
See, I have been on the road of self-discovery for as long as I can remember. Reading book after book, thinking that my life will be “perfect” after I finished reading the next book. It was when I got into the second part of the S.W.A.T. program, when I realized that it’s not about being perfect but about growing and discovering things about yourself everyday.
Life is a journey, something to be enjoyed and savored, not a race to get to this place of “the end” because if we are alive, we are not at the end. Over the past couple of years I’ve faced my denial and I have come to some major realizations about life and how I perceive the world around me.
Being a wife, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I understand the challenges that we, as women, can face when we have so many things to balance. I also know first-hand what can happen when things are out of alignment. I also believe that the best way to empower our children is by being empowered ourselves because our children look to us as their role models.
Using what I’ve learned from my own life, combined with my education as a Master Empowerment Coach, I will help you find your true-confident self again, bringing the magic back into your life.
