Shelly Shelton thought she had it all - a successful career, a loving husband, and a bright future ahead of her. But one day, she woke up blind and collapsed at work. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Shelly's brain had numerous lesions, and her neurologist told her that attempting to have a child would paralyze her. Shelly also could not walk.
Despite this devastating news, Shelly refused to accept this narrative of her life. She did everything in her power, along with prayer, to change the course of her journey. In a short amount of time, Shelly made an unbelievable recovery - she regained her sight, was able to walk again, and even came out of her divorce as a stronger woman.
Shelly's resilience inspired her to pursue her biggest career breakthrough yet. She founded TLC Recruiting Academy, a recruitment agency specializing in government, healthcare, transportation, and construction. She also started Unstoppable University, which offers accountability coaching and personal and professional development courses, as well as divorce recovery. In addition, Shelly started her own interior decorating and staging company, Shelton Interior Decorating & Staging. She is also the author of S.M.I.L.E.: How-to Guide to Get Through Any Storm and the Chandler Book Series.
Despite all of her successes, Shelly still struggled with the limiting belief that she was not good enough. In Episode #69 of the Drop Your Baggage Podcast, Shelly addresses this belief head on. Through the Mental and Emotional Release Process, she was able to release this limiting belief and learn to accept that other people's opinions and perceptions of her do not define her. She also acknowledges the support of her loved ones who truly care for her.
Shelly fully embraces her accomplishments and her worth as a person. She was able to see that she is capable of achieving great things, regardless of what others may think or say about her. Shelly's story is a testament to the power of resilience and determination. Despite facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles, she persevered and not only overcame them but thrived. Shelly's determination to succeed and her ability to inspire others serves as an inspiration to us all.
