My name is Star Zuwala, MA!
Let’s get straight to it. Who am I? Why am I a motivational coach?
That is a long story, but the short version is this.
I am a born artist. Singing, dancing, acting, styling, directing, painting, designing and producing works of art.
I am also a natural investigator. I want to know why things are the way that they are. What motivates and drives people to act the way that they do? There is always an answer.
Education and research have always been a huge part of my life. I received a Theater Bachelor’s degree in 2002. A Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2012. My natural curiosity made it so that I loved reading about all types of subject matter and gaining knowledge and sharing it with my clients. The areas of concentration were law of attraction, metaphysics, transformation, motivation, astrology, healing from trauma, eating disorders, addiction, increasing self-esteem and self-worth, body dysmorphic disorder, personality disorders and domestic violence. Other areas were power of positivity, reprogramming the mind, affirmations, intentions, spirituality, manifestation, holistic health, self-care, self-development, depression, PTSD, sexual abuse, re-parenting, healing the inner child, codependence, abuse, anxiety and more!
WHY AM I A MOTIVATIONAL COACH?
I am a natural initiator. I love getting things going. I don’t like to wait. But it goes deeper than that.
It all started when I was really young and how life was very challenging to say the least. I survived it yes, and at around 16, I was not happy with life as it was and sought out the “how” to find happiness and a deeper more fulfilling life with meaning. I became more interested in delving into the inner landscape of myself, that being emotions, connection with God, and spirituality. I was asking questions like “what makes for genuine happiness and satisfaction?” I really wanted to know. I had achieved things I had wanted and was still feeling empty. I saw that the happiness I was seeking was not found in material things or the high school social scene. In the end, I learned that happiness is created and resurrected by meeting one’s own needs or giving oneself what which was missing in childhood and young adult experiences.
Blaming other people for not giving us what we need to be happy is going about it all wrong. They are not perfect and they are doing their best, but what if they fall short? Being dependent on another for your sustenance is a scary thing and I sought out independence in every way. That journey brought me to learning a lot about reparenting and giving oneself the best on every level. Self care was a huge part of the puzzle. Underlying beliefs drive everything that we do. Reprogramming the beliefs can change your life drastically! I saw the changes in my own life from negative to positive and life became one of thriving rather than surviving.
I wanted to share with other people the knowledge that I had acquired, basically what I had taken decades to learn on my own! To help others get to where I am today, quicker than it took me!
So basically people hire me to win, because I won first in my own life. I got to the mountaintop of success and have turned around to help people up their mountains to the top!
I love seeing people thriving at the top of their game!
