Happiness is created, not inherited
Hi! I’m Laurie-ann Sheldrick, dubbed the contagiously positive girl.
In 2009, while I was working the work to heal my own inner world, a man I worked with said, “you are so f$%king contagiously positive.” I decided to use my new superpowers by becoming a certified life coach, so that I could help other women unleash their inner contagiously positive. I am so grateful that I have had the privilege to be coaching the most incredible women since 2012 when I opened my own practice.
I help women strengthen their emotional, mental, attitudinal and spiritual muscles so they can live empowered, authentic and joyful lives. And we do this by no longer bypassing the inner work, and going all in on programming our brain to work for us, instead of against us.
How can I put into words what this beautiful business is growing into. To my core my purpose has always been to be a teacher. I teach and share all the things that make us f**king contagiously positive. This is my superpoower.
Contagiously Positive is a Lifestyle Company who’s main purpose to help you unleash your inner Contagiously Positive by creating and living a life that you LOVE. I founded Contagiously Positive so that I could guide women (men are welcome too) into making nourishing their minds, bodies, hearts and souls a top level, code red priority. We cannot bias the inner work. Strengthening your mental, emotional, spiritual, attitudinal and physical muscles is the key to success in all areas of your life. I offer one-on-one life coaching, online self-guided courses/workshops and facilitate corporate workshops. I help my clients overcome their limiting beliefs and feel the way they want to feel so they can be, do and have all that they desire.
I love to teach and it revs me up to share all the amazing life lessons that I have been learning on my life journey.
When it comes to working with organizations, or with individuals in one-on-one coaching, online courses, workshops or speaking engagements, everything is geared towards offering solutions to people who want to enhance their lives. I work with people who want to change and who want to learn stress-free, fun (key to everything!), and inspired ways on being happy, healthy, successful, inspired, motivated, productive and energized. I give daily tools that they can easily incorporate into their lives that help them strengthen their emotional, mental, attitudinal and physical muscles.
I was dubbed Contagiously Positive from a man I worked with in my past life when I worked for 10 years in General Contracting. He said, “you are so f-ing Contagiously Positive!” He didn’t mean it to be a compliment, but I took it as one because I had not always been a happy woman. In fact, before I decide to make myself a priority, I was unhappy, stuck in the negative vortex (I had actually taken up permanent residence there), I was stressed out, burnt out, unhealthy and felt sick and tired all the time. Not to mention I had no vision, no goals and zero idea on how to get from where I was (miserable and unfulfilled) to where I want to go (happy-land). I went from feeling spiritually, emotionally, physically bankrupt, to being dubbed Contagiously Positive.
My personal and professional life are not separate. I live and breathe what I teach because I can be taken down so quickly into the negative vortex. I also believe that if I am going to teach health and wellness, I better practice what I preach. To win at life, I believe that continuous personal development is essential. Learning has been key for me, which is why I teach.
I am committed to serving at my highest purpose
Learning how to break through the toxic barriers, reprogram my brain out of negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs, creating a vision, taking aligned action on that vision, creating heart-centered goals, and truly living the life that I wanted to live, made me committed to sharing my lessons and helping other people on their own journey towards living a happy life.
If you choose to work with me one-on-one, take one of the online workshops, hire me to speak at your event, or want to follow all the free and amazing tools, tips and inspiration on my blog, free weekly coaching email, or podcast, I will share with you my own daily lifestyle practices that helped me step out of the darkness and leap into the light. I will show you how to experience mental, emotional, and spiritual freedom.
Contagiously positive mind & soul
I believe that life should be enjoyed. We do not need to suffer. We do not need to be stressed out until we get burnt out. But we do need to feel all the feels. We have a vast, ever moving emotional scale and there is no shame in feeling what we have been conditioned to believe are “negative” emotions.
I help my clients to process emotional discomfort in a healthy way and stop bypassing it, because it will keep showing up. There is nothing wrong or shameful about your emotions. What I help you do is experience the mental and emotional freedom of knowing what you can do to heal them, so you don’t take up permanent residence in a place you don’t want to be.
My truest desire is to help you clear away the blocks that are keeping you from being your true, authentic, fabulous self.
