When Patricia Butterworth combined her two passions — psychology and spirituality — she created a beautiful synthesis of the two and discovered a lasting way to achieve personal goals. This culminated in 2017, at the age of 66 years, when she attained the level of 5th degree black belt in the Korean martial art of hapkido making her the highest-ranked woman in the Australian Hapkido Association. She recounts the mindsets and successful strategies she has learned to reach one’s full potential. Her book, “Create Your Success: The Lived Experience” (published by Balboa Press AU) serves as an inspiration to others to realize their dreams.

In this book, Butterworth offers an inspirational memoir of adventure and pushing the limits. She talks about her backpacking exploits through Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Europe, her “hippy” experiences and relationship challenges. As a psychologist, she provides insights into grief, life, and the mindset to achieve, and she recounts the successful strategies she has learned to reach one’s full potential.

“My book does not just teach about spiritual tools and techniques. It documents how they can be utilized and applied to achieve one’s goal and realize one’s potential. It is a personal demonstration that the techniques taught by spiritual mentors actually work in real life,” Butterworth says. “It will resonate with those who want to connect with their own potential regardless of perceived limitations, chart their own life course and create their own success in whatever endeavor they wish to undertake.”

“Create Your Success: The Lived Experience” aims to illuminate for readers that with the right mindset, they can achieve their heart’s desire despite perceived challenges. “If I can achieve success in my field of endeavor, so can they in whatever they put their mind to,” Butterworth concludes.
