Today, scrumptious ones, I would like to introduce you to Tonya Heathco, an utterly fabulous goddess and a spectacular example of using the Power of Self-labeling to change even that which appears unchangeable.
We met thanks to the Great Edward Elliott, who shared her remarkable story on his Share Your Dream Friday blog.
Now, Tonya’s dream is stupendous enough, but what really took my breath away was how it exemplified the awesome, lusciousness of the Power of Self-Labeling, and how the Choosing and Owning of the label/title of Terrific Tonya had such a profound effect on her health, her business and her whole life.
But enough talk.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you …. The Terrific Tonya Heathco
The Power Of Self-Labeling
What is self-labeling?
A word, phrase, or thought you attach to yourself. Society has given us labels that we attach to ourselves without thought. The problem is many times those labels are negative and promote negative results leading one to believe that one is defined by a negative label.
During my late teens I developed a rare seizure disorder which lead society to label myself in a negative light. As my health became worse, my seizures grew to 150 a month. I searched for positive input as a sort of spiritual food.
Contacting many leaders in the field of positive energy, I began to heal from the inside out. Positive labels felt good to me so I knew once I began positive self labeling I would find marked improvement in my seizure management.
It was the end of 2010 when I met the Great Edward Elliott through FaceBook.
His positive energy was different from others. He was much more than a “happy guy”, he was the image of
what I felt I needed in my life. Suddenly it occurred to me, he was using positive self labeling.
From that moment on I became Terrific Tonya in Tennessee. It was as if I put on a new skin.
The emotion behind the label led me to believe I was Terrific Tonya. I began telling everyone and
sharing the new label through every method possible.
Not long afterward I noticed my seizures had disappeared.
I continue to take three medications several times a day to manage my seizures, but the seizures were not this remarkable under control until I started using a positive self label with the emotion that transformed my mind.
seizure disorder I was born with will only heal by Divine healing, I know this. The seizures,for now, have found Peace and are at rest.
I continue to raise awareness for seizure disorders through Squidoo lenses and FaceBook support
groups. Now I am able to add a positive light to my story by sharing the Hope that a person can
change their current situation by using positive self labeling.
There is great power in self labeling whether we use positive or negative labels. Whether
positive or negative self labels are used, they work.
Think about it for a moment. A person labels themselves as “fat” or “lazy”. What happens? Their self esteem fades and they are left eating cookies on the couch, slowly gaining weight with no motivation to get back into shape. This
happens because they are living their label.
On the other hand, take a look at healthy successful people. They label themselves as “energetic”, “healthy”, “successful” and “rich”. They live their labels and become the embodiment of those labels.
Which label are you using today?
If your label is not producing the desired results, you have the power to change your label.
That’s what happened to me.
Sending Love and Positive Energy to All My Readers-

Now, is that not the most inspiring story ever?
A quick disclaimer here, neither Tonya nor I are saying that choosing and changing your self-label will suddenly cure disease or magically remove excess weight, or add a few zeros to the number in your bank account.
But if she can have this kind of result using the Power of Labels, what’s to stop you from at least trying it?
