I've always had an inner drive to be the best that I can be. My entire life I've worked with therapists and coaches to harness my strengths, overcome my fears, and dig deeper into the experience of life. I've realized over the years that most people don't operate this way. In fact, some people believe that there is something wrong with you if you see a therapist or a coach. That's just silly. The truth is that you get to do this (thing called life) ONE TIME. That's it, just one pass through this awe-inspiring, absolutely intense, wild ride. For me, my soul signed me up years ago for the full ride. I'm in.
For those of you who are still on the fence about being all-in on your life, I've outlined three signs that working with a Life Coach could positively impact your experience of life.
If any of these statements ring true for you, continue reading and let's explore how working with a Life Coach could transform the way you're experiencing life.
#1 - There is a gap between what you SAY to yourself and what you actually DO.
For example, you tell yourself that you're going to work out three times next week, but then you don't end up doing it. You tell yourself that you're going to stand up for yourself the next time you're in a situation with that person, but time and again you don't. You tell yourself that you are going to share your needs and desires with your partner, but another month goes by, and you haven't done it. This gap between your thoughts and your actions is not serving you. In fact, it's hurting you.
#2 - You think of your desires as unreasonable or "wishful thinking".
Now that marijuana is legal in 19 states, we can normalize the term pipe dream, right? The term pipe dream means an unattainable or fanciful hope or plan. Every one of us has dreams that are deep in our soul, things that we wish for, experiences that we desire to have, or a version of ourselves that we want to be. About 95% of us never share the details of these dreams with another person because they are so sacred and special to us, that we desire to protect them at all cost. Usually, we tame the dream, dial it down by about 60%, and then we might consider sharing it. The truth is that very few of us choose to bring that dream (even the dialed down version) out into the light, share it with others, and take action towards achieving it.
If, after an episode of daydreaming, you brain tells you something like, "you're crazy", "that will never happen", "that's a pipe dream", "yeah, right" or "you wish", I hate to break it to you (and excuse my language), but your brain is a little bitch. Those kinds of thoughts aren't helping you. In fact, they are hurting you.
#3 - You are always busy and you never have enough time in your life
Time is our most valuable commodity. It is the thing we can't make more of and can't get back, and yet, we treat it carelessly. For some reason, many of us adopt a belief that we can't control our own time, and we become a slave to spending time in ways that don't honor us or fulfill us. More and more in our fast-paced world we use our business and overwhelm as proof that we matter. How many times has "I've been really busy" been your response to the question, "How are you?". Do you often tell yourself that there is not enough time? How many times a day do you think, "I have to _________." How many of you have had the competition with your partner, Who is more tired tonight?
If time is controlling you (instead of you controlling your time) that is not serving you. In fact, that habit is hurting you.
The good news is that simply becoming aware of what's actually happening is the first step. The second step is deciding if you want to do something about it. If so, this is where a Life Coach could help. If you're interested in investigating how coaching could transform these three areas of your life (or any other areas you might be interested in transforming), please set up a free consultation with me. I'd love the opportunity to connect with you and talk about life and the experience of being human (this is my all-time favorite thing to talk about and explore with others!)
I offer a warm, inviting space so there is no need to feel anxious about setting up your consultation. I don't believe in high-pressure sales, so you don't have to worry about being pressured into purchasing anything during our consultation. I will share with you the information you need to make a decision about coaching with me, and then request that you take a few days after our consultation to decide if this is the right step for you.
You see, I like to create powerful partnerships in my life. This requires both people to be fully in. I am fully committed to helping my clients achieve their goals, and when a client is fully committed to the coaching partnership - well, guys, anything can happen. I've been doing this work since 2010, and it's been a knock-your-socks-off, curl-your-toes kind of ride.
