Hello, my name is Meredith Forder. I am the founder of Clear Thinking and I am honoured to be able to help people manage their minds so that they can be clear, focused, in control of their lives and happy.
However, it wasn’t always like that—first of all I had to learn how to manage my own mind and gain control of my own life.
To give you an idea of how I achieved this and how Clear Thinking was established I need to wind the clock back a little over two decades, to when I was in my early twenties…
My career started as a fashion designer on the Gold Coast, in Queensland, where I ran a successful business for a number of years. Then three tragedies turned my world upside down. I lost my father, my partner and my cousin—all separate incidences, but all within the span of three months.
I was a mess!
To cope, I threw myself into work. I was determined to prove that I was okay. On the surface everything was perfect and shiny. I was all smiles, yet deep down,
there was an emptiness that could not be filled.
I put it down to the fact that I had lost so much, but it was more than that. So to help me understand, I embarked on a journey to discover what was really missing in my life.
I attended several “spiritual” courses and asked myself some serious questions, like “What am I doing?” “Where am I going?” “If I continue this way, where will I end up?”
Then, a friend suggested that I do a course in Perth, called Mastermind. Apart from the fact that I had never been to Western Australia I saw this as an opportunity to get away and reflect; but what I didn’t know was that this trip was going to change my life, forever.
A series of fortunate events lead me to read an awe-inspiring book, meet the author and fly to India to learn their culture and their philosophy. This set the foundation for Clear Thinking and in July 2011 Clear Thinking was established.
