No and perseveres and podcast. Today I have a guest that is a dancer and actor in international model, but a recent title that she just got was Ms. Grant Germany. And not only that, she is a brand ambassador for many different brands. She is a public speaker, an executive coach, and doing marketing out there and the corporate world. Welcome to the show. Mona's south Metsul.
Speaker 1:
0:48
Thank you so much. It was an amazing introduction.
Speaker 3:
0:52
Oh, that last name was definitely a challenge among other guests I've had. Yes.
Speaker 1:
0:55
Yeah. German.
Speaker 3:
1:00
Well, thank you for being on the show today and on our show on the podcast, we jumped right into this story and this is a story I'd love for you to share with the audience, so please
Speaker 1:
1:09
share it. Thank you so much. Something that I was struggling with definitely wasn't my youth because, you know, when I was younger, um, I was more like a black swan that we say it like that. So, um, I got bullied a lot in school and life wasn't dead easy for me, but I was really lucky because I had a really supportive mom and they had a really supportive, uh, grandma and GRANDPA. So what it taught me was to always stand up for myself. And, um, so even though I was bullied in school, I took like, I grew stronger. However, I also always wanted to model. There was also some something I always wanted to do, um, being on stage, enjoying, um, stuff like that. But like my first thing that I did was free. Like when I was three years old, um, I was used to be a dancer and I started with dancing.
Speaker 1:
2:05
Um, and yeah, so I, it was like the conflict in school. I got bullied but it onstage, onstage I was like glowing and shining and stuff. Um, so I had to kind of decide which part I take. And when I was about like 14, 15 years old, I also had, um, depressions, pretty much. So that was a really rough time for me. Um, and it also was a big girl, so I wasn't released them. I ate a lot. I love reading. I still do. I still love eating, but, um, yeah, it wasn't easy. So however I decided to go like that, it was ready for me to shine by time to sign. Um, so what I did is I was thinking actually about what I want to become and what I want to do. And that time I, first of all, I wanted to open up my own dancing school, like with 17 old or something.
Speaker 1:
3:01
Um, however I got introduced to network marketing, which included many, many entrepreneurs that I got the chance to meet and talk to. Um, which was pretty, pretty good for me. I was really lucky to get that chance. Um, so they told me about all the struggles they had with their companies and stuff and why they didn't have remarketing. So I was thinking about all that and said, okay, no, I don't want to open up my own dancing school. I just want to be a trainer and stuff like that. So training, dance and stuff. Um, and somehow, uh, I've been pretty well in network marketing. So within one year I lost a lot of Kiddos with the products that I use that time. I'm like, thank you Lou that pretty much without even knowing because I didn't change any other things, just maybe my drinking habits.
Speaker 1:
3:52
Um, yeah. And with that, with my, with I figured that I had the time, I was able to actually join modeling business. But the thing also was that I wasn't tall enough, so people always told me, you're not tall enough. You can do that. You can work that fashion show or whatever. So it's always a thing that you're not tall enough that you're not pretty enough that you're not, I dunno, whatever enough. Right. So, and I think that's something every person has to struggle with. But the thing is, do you really want it? And if you really want it, there will always be a way to get it always. So I figured out a way to actually achieve my dreams and not just that, but I went better and better and better into the marketing thing. So I'm networking stuff. So I learned how to talk with people and get into the interconnection with people.
Speaker 1:
4:43
Um, and finally, um, yeah, I went into the pension tree actually, that was my next step. That was in 2016 so within two months also a visualization of course. So that's something really important I think that you have to do. So I had like my vision board, um, had all my dreams under and it was crazy because there was the first time that I got introduced to the admission board and mindset stuff. So, um, I like one night I thought, okay, I want to become a sturdy, I put it in my head, so what I did, maybe it would work, but maybe it will. So I just put it onto my, um, on my vision board. So I write it on it, Ms Germany. And believe it or not, two months later I was standing on the Philippines, um, representing Germany and with Asia Pacific International. So that was how I entered that part.
Speaker 1:
5:35
And since then, I'm always doing that. Like the peasantry thing for me, it's something really important because you can support so many people which maybe don't have the right mindset yet or don't know how to accomplish things that they really want. Even like if they're really poor because in some countries they are not privileged, decided like that in English we don't like don't have that many privileges as we do. So I think that's something that you can really empower people and especially women because a lot of women have problems with like there they are outside body. So what I always say is it's so important how you are from the inside. So first always change your inside and your outside will always, um, like how do you say this? Um, it would always follow for sure. So that's the way that I really like to work with people and um, my strategy. Yeah.
Speaker 3:
6:31
Well, you know, it's interesting you said that about that age 1314 I can remember it specifically, you know, I was five foot two and 92 pounds and all I wanted to do was be a starting basketball player at my high school, you know, and at five, two and 92 pounds, that really doesn't get you a starting position as somebody else that would be taller or somebody else you know, and you know your words are, are pretty much when I heard all the time, you're not tall enough, you're not fast enough, you're not all these things. What was it that thought process that you had when you, you just chose not to listen to those people? What's kind of, when they first say that to you, it things, it really does and I know that and but what is the thought process you just process you go through to say, I'm not listening what they have to say.
Speaker 1:
7:20
Oh, lucky me, I was by really strong mom was bullied in school. I already ran to not listen to the people. Especially because the to story is it a little bit funny? Actually, I changed my school and went into it. Like I mentioned town girl, I left town. Um, but that time that I changed to high school, I needed to go into a village and coming from town, going into a village or anyone. Um, and then there was, they were bullying means stuff. I was always thinking like your village people, you know, from town, I know what's going on. So that was lucky me in my head. And then finally also moved in with marketing that I went into. MMM. I just remember I just got to know some secrets like, um, law of attraction, things like those. And Yeah, just get more into that. Um, which helped me a lot. And finally, I also always say, your reality isn't my reality because there are thousands of realities, right? So if you for example, think that I'm too small lorries to something, maybe that's you assess it, but 100%, I'm going to find someone who will see the positive sides and me and will say, wow, that's amazing what you do, or whatever. So I would just go with those people. I mean leave the negative people behind and go up to positive ones. Right?
Speaker 3:
8:44
Yeah, I agree with that. You know, I fell on this show, we've had a lot of people talk about who you surround yourself with being around positive people. But I think, you know, talking about your mindset, well you're saying, you know, for the audience that may not understand law of attraction, but it's also this growth mindset, this ability to take something that's negative, that set around you and turn it into optimism or turn does positive things. And talk a little bit more about that. The law of attraction for soap of those who may not know what that is. Uh, there's been lots of books out there. Um, you know, on law of attraction, there's been movies about it. There's all kinds of things. But to you, what does this mean?
Speaker 1:
9:26
Well, I think maybe the easiest way to explain it, I dunno if it's the same in America as it is in Germany, but let me say, for example, you just had to idea here that you love this car. Okay, there's a car you love and you would love to buy this car. Just at least drive it. Um, so you've maybe seen that once on television or some or whatever, and now you're always thinking, oh nice. So what's happening is that you see this car driving around everywhere and you will see it everyday. So often because it's like the selective mindset that you have. I'm not sure how it's called in English, but um, you like, like you mentioned wearing some glasses, right? Um, with like blue new coverage or something. So you see just a blue color in, in life for example. But if you put on other glasses, you will maybe just see the red ones.
Speaker 1:
10:22
And that's actually what law of attraction means. And also that you attract the things that you surround yourself with the most and that he think about most. That's also reason why it's so important to stay around positive people and great people because you will always be like the, how do you say? Um, you will always be like in the middle of those people. So it's just around yourself. For example, if doctors, you will also be a doctor finally, or if you surround yourself with criminals on yet side, you will find the end up being a criminal. That's just, yeah, law of attraction. What it means for me at least. So you can really, if you want to be successful, you can somehow drive to success. But knowing this law. Yeah,
Speaker 3:
11:10
well there's a story of Jim Carey who's a famous actor, a famous comedian and he always talks about this and he actually told it on Oprah Winfrey show for those in the audience, I've never heard this. I'll go real quick about it, is that essentially, you know, he had written a check for $10 million and put it in his wallet and after three years, you know, he of acting and he would go up on Mulholland drive, look over Hollywood and imagine themselves be an actor and doing well and making all this money. And when he said it was going to be three years from then, he wrote that check. He found out about two months before that three year mark was up, they were just going to make $2 million on dumb and dumber. And that law of attraction, he drove there everyday. He saw himself doing this and it comes to you and it's kind of a little crazy, a little quirky, but it's really about a positive mindset. It really is. It's about being positive, seeing yourself where you know you can be and that's something that you're going to be doing next as well. Right? You're going to continue modeling, you're going to be doing network marketing like you said in the corporate world, continuing to help your clients talk a little bit more about what's going on next for you.
Speaker 1:
12:25
Well, absolutely. I have a lot of big goals right now. At least I want to be the best version of myself that I could ever be and I really recommend that to everyone. Um, so my next goals are definitely walking some really famous fashion shows and fashion weeks. I'm really into that. Um, and of course, of course also working with great big brands out there. Like that's on the modeling side. Um, on the peasantry side, I also want to, um, yeah, two to actually go with Miss Universe. So I was lucky enough 2017 to already make it into top 10, Miss Universe, Germany candidates. Um, finally it didn't work out for me, but, um, however I went to miss supernational what was also amazing. So I'm definitely going to retry and for the biggest mmm. Kitchens this into next year for sure and lifted Edrick marketing. Actually it's like a recommendation business what I am in. So it also gives many, many people, especially intrepreneurs and sales people the opportunity to, um, um, how do you say it in English too? Uh, get maybe a passive income, let him say it like that. So I want to build a huge team and get a lot of, um, amazing and to happy customers, especially if you're working in anti aging and reverse aging bronch with Nobel prize technology. So that's something really interesting and yeah, I'm all into that as well.
Speaker 3:
14:03
Okay. Well, you said something there. As we getting ready to sign off here is that you're always looking to the be the best version of yourself. And so I'm glad that you are able to be on the show today and continue being your best self. So thanks for being on Moana.
Speaker 1:
