Get to know True Transformation founder, Simon Lovell...
I was born in Exeter, England on April 18th 1979. In the early stages of my life I was fun, smiling, giggling and goofy. I loved to play.
Running around the playground at five years old pretending to be a cop and playing kiss chase, I was the typically little boy that had fun.
But when I moved to secondary school, life started to change.
Still muddy after a rugby game, I took off my clothes, grabbed a towel and walked into the locker room shower to clean the mud off my body.
I innocently walked past one of the popular guys at school who decided he wanted to make my life hell...
“Get your backs to the walls, Lovell just touched me”, he shouted.
The rest of the boys stood with their backs to the walls, shouting...
“GAY, GAY, GAY”
From the age of thirteen I was heavily bullied. I spent most days in fear of what would happen at school.
Simon The Entrepreneur
One of my hobbies was playing video games, so I spent much more time isolating myself producing my fanzine called Megabyte selling it for one pound to local newsagents.
Eventually I went on to work for national games magazines and start my own publishing company with a friend which eventually collapsed.
In my early twenties, I found myself at a crossroads in life.
Within the space of a few months my girlfriend asked me to leave, I lost my home and found myself living with my parents riddled with debt.
A Mother’s Question, A Mother’s Advice
Sitting on the sofa, my mum asked me a really important question and made a powerful suggestion.
“What do you want to do with your life now son?”, she asked.
“You love to go to the gym, so what about becoming a personal trainer and helping people?”
I loved the idea. But I had no money. Fortunately my parents really wanted to help.
So off to Cyprus I went to certify as a personal trainer and came back a new man, feeling confident with a spring in my step.
Simon The Addict
At the same as being addicted to fitness, I was also addicted to partying, binge drinking, smoking and gambling.
Then after one night at another personal trainer’s house, I took cocaine and started years of destroying myself.
I became depressed, stressed, socially awkward and needed more and more drugs to soothe my pain.
Now I was back in debt with nothing to show for it, 7 credit cards almost maxed out.
Eventually I hit rock bottom and during Christmas 2010 had a wake up call, a little voice that said...
“What the hell are you doing with your life? Something has to change”.
I moved away from Exeter and decided to start a new life.
I took personal development trainings, hired coaches, worked on my mind and instead of wasting money, began investing in myself.
I found a mentor that helped me find the confidence within and started to rebuild myself financially.
My Millionaire Money Focus
I worked hard and eventually made my first million dollars, with plenty of ups and downs along the way.
I moved from England to California and started a new life, getting the keys to a $4 million dollar mansion and to a Ferrari which I had put on a vision board in 2013.
On the outside, everything looked great, but behind closed doors Simon was still unhappy and had more work to do on himself.
I was in co-dependent relationships that drained my energy. There was always a massive part of me that knew I needed to leave, but a bigger part of me that wanted to stay because of my neediness.
I started to meditate more consistently, went into the Amazon jungle for plant ceremonies and hired healers.
I upgraded my Ferrari.
I moved into a bigger mansion, complete with a basketball court.
Still, something didn’t feel right. I was frustrated and tired.
I kept on asking the question “is this were I’m leading people to?”
After spending over $250,000 on personal development I still didn’t feel complete or connected at my core.
But I refused to stop investing in myself.
I found another mentor.
One who suggested that instead of adding, I should start to let go.
So I did.
I made the decision to move out of the big house, let go of the fancy cars and see what would happen.
I decided to stop running the business that felt out of alignment.
I immediately stopped my lavish spending.
I gave away expensive watches.
I started to release the shame from the events in my past and fully own my story. I started to admit the truth which brought up so many emotions.
It was these critical decisions that made all the difference.
At this point in my life, I have finally let go of every addiction and cleansed myself. No more drugs, drinking, smoking or alcohol. It's not part of me anymore. There's no more trying to 'give up' anything.
I'm not angry at people like I used to be, nor do I live in fear.
To put together a group of people who I would teach what worked for me so they didn’t need to spend $250,000 to reach inner peace and joy because I knew that for some, they would never have enough time to discover the happiness that lies within.
To make it more affordable and accessible.
The results and healing were incredible in a very short period of time and so I am now continuing that work.
My mission is to raise conscious awareness. To serve humanity through helping others who feel stuck and out of alignment.
To bring together likeminded humans who want to grow but need direction to access and act upon their own little voice inside. To allow raw, honest conversations from those who want to be seen and heard.
