Ife Thomas, a successful mindset and confidence coach, opens up about her challenges as a child with autism. Ife spent many years trying to fit in, struggling with her self awareness until she was diagnosed with autism as an adult in 2014.
It was a journey full of emotions. Going from anger to appreciation, activism, then acceptance.
Today, she chooses to be happy every day. She trusts herself and shows up confidently everywhere. She no longer feels the need to justify herself.
You’ll hear that her son is also diagnosed with autism. We cover why it's so important to show up with unshakable confidence and how this impacts your children.
We can celebrate our differences. The story of Ife is living proof and one of inspiration. Her resilience shows we can open closed doors no matter our challenges.
'Focus on the light, focus on the things that are great about you, and then expand them. Let go of all the things that you can't do very well. You're very much taught to be a generalist but if you really want to succeed in life, you need to become a specialist.'
