As with any project, taking the first flash of an idea to full fruition takes time, some effort and team work. Transforming my thoughts from my blog into a user- and reader-friendly guide to help show people that we all have the ability “to sculpt our own mind” has been a fun, sometimes challenging path.
My thanks start first with the wonderful tribe that makes up the WA Chapter of NSAA, fellow speakers and authors with messages of their own to share with the world. You provided me with so much inspiration, support and encouragement. Special thanks go to Julie Meek, Paula Smith, David Beard, Dr. Jason Fox and David Price. You guys rock!
To Dr. Desi Silva, Liz Wright, Julie Taylor and Hayley Solich: I am so blessed to have your friendship. And where would I be without the best swimming coach in the world, Amanda? You not only taught me how to swim (and save me a fortune in physiotherapy bills) but have shared many hours of fun and laughter and been a driving force to encourage me to succeed in all of my endeavours.
Thanks go too, to my editor Jo-Anne Craine at Type A Creative. I truly appreciate all the hard work you put into this manuscript. Thanks also to my good friend Dr. Elinor Thompson, for providing the medical edit with an honest objective review, and to John for your guidance and encouragement to complete this book. To Renee Fulton, your fabulous creativity with the graphics has brought the text to life just brilliantly.
