“Love is the ultimate success.” –Brett Shuttleworth
Actor and model turned motivational speaker, Brett Shuttleworth held a Women’s Day seminar titled What makes your soul smile? at the Tropicana Hotel, overlooking the beautiful Indian ocean.
“I am doing this seminar because I think all women are beautiful. I want women to see that being a woman is beauty in itself, and I want to acknowledge them for their place,” said Shuttleworth.
He empowered the women at the seminar by helping them find ways to success by reminding them that women are beautiful inside and out. He focused on love and the power of the integrity of one’s words as the ultimate success builder.
Shuttleworth informed ladies that the universe works according to attitude and words- thus meaning that if the ladies wanted a beautiful, peaceful and happy life, the only way to achieve that was through saying what they want and having a positive attitude- this creates, according to him, a ripple effect in all areas of their lives.
The former actor also shared that August should not be the only month women are celebrated- they should be celebrated every day. His goal was to help them realise their importance as women and keep in mind that their flaws are beautiful; stressing the fact that appearance is not everything.
While he told women to believe in the power of their own word, he also cautioned the women to be careful of their word. The women were challenged to create master pieces of their lives through their word in order to attract positive energy because, “your word is your energy”.
In addition, he spoke about his time as a homeless actor and model in New York and described those 6 months of his life as among the most powerful and eye opening- which is when he realized he was doing everything for the wrong reasons; that being an actor and a model was not his purpose. “You need to have a breakdown in order to have a breakthrough,” he said.
The women that attended came from all walks of life and shared their breakthroughs through different tasks that were planned by Shuttleworth and his team for the seminar. They were lively and vibrant while participating in the tasks and were rewarded with an all-expenses paid vacation from one of the Gooderson Spa Resorts.
“You cannot come to one of Brett’s Seminars and go away without taking anything away from his talks, because he has been through a lot of experiences and has a lot to share about him finding his happiness,” said Chantel from Freightmore.
