To know if Telana Simpson is the right person for you to work with, look over the following lists of symptoms or experiences, and signs. These are indicators that Telana might be a good fit as a partner on your journey of personal development.

  • Find it difficult to express your opinions? Or even fearful?
  • Have the habit of avoiding certain people, topics or issues rather than facing them?
  • Tend to just agree with others to avoid conflict?
  • Feel like you have an inferiority complex? (which might be demonstrated by at times find yourself showing self-approval through what you say or do, as a means to cover up a feeling of less worth; doing things to impress others; imitating others in the way they talk or dress, boasting of made-up accomplishments)
  • Care what others think or say about you, to the point that it holds you back?
  • Lack initiative and ambition?
  • Fail to take full advantage of opportunities to advance yourself?
  • Lack confidence in your own ideas?
  • Give evasive, unclear answers when asked a question by a superior?
  • Hesitate to the point that you miss out?
  • Label yourself as mentally and physically lazy?
  • Think you are easily influenced by others, to your detriment?

Would you like to:

  • Be more assertive?
  • Be able to say what is on your mind, share your ideas and opinions and even enjoy doing so?
  • Stand up for yourself?
  • Develop the capacity for deep and meaningful relationships?
  • Experience a freedom and openness in attitudes and dealings with others?
  • Talk in front of groups of people, or in meetings or even one-on-one with ease and confidence?
  • Not take things so personally, and rather be able to participate in debates and heated discussions such that you feel you can make a contribution and also learn from others?

In your life, do you feel diminished, and are you ready to do something about it? Are you experiencing the following symptoms or experiences?

  • draining off your energy in unrewarding areas
  • disintegrating into fatigue and depression
  • achieving only a small fraction of your potential intelligence, potential love, potential life

  • mentally and physically lazy
  • lack imagination, enthusiasm, self-control and discipline
  • don’t take initiative
  • indecisive, possibly even allowing others to do your thinking for you

  • worry a lot, and can easily find fault with others
  • neglectful of your own personal affairs, lack self-reliance
  • feel nervous and self-conscious a lot
  • over cautious, and tend to wait for the right time to take action, and now this is a habit
  • pessimistic, with the habit of only looking for the negatives, what won’t work, and not finding the means of succeeding, seeing only those who have failed, dismissing those who have succeeded
  • are a procrastinator of note, you put things off, come up with excuses as to why you haven’t or can’t do something
  • refuse to taking responsibility when it is possible to avoid
  • compromise with setbacks rather than using them as stepping stones to progress
