Living someone else’s life?
Have you ever stopped, looked around you and wondered “who’s life is this?” Somehow you have ended up being so removed from the life you intended for yourself, surrounded by people who seem alien to you, and doing something that isn’t what you dreamed of. How did that happen?
It can be really annoying and frankly quite unbelievable when someone tells you that you created it all for yourself, right?
So, you want to change but you don’t know how. Here’s a few questions to start the change process:
- It is your life right here, right now – just accept it. Irrespective of how you got here (you can bank that in the lessons learnt folder), what is actually working for you right now? Think right back to the basics. A roof over your head, a job that pays enough to cover your living expenses, evenings and weekends free to do things you enjoy.
- Next ask yourself, what could be working better? Is it more money, your work/life balance, more customers or clients, or maybe a more fulfilling social life?
- What actually are your goals in life, being clear on what you actually want to take action on? Really get some clarity. Do you want a committed happy relationship? A new career? To achieve a certain weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle?
- Thinking about each of those goals, what could you do differently in this area that will move you forward, no matter how small the step may seem?
Working with your own personal coach gives you the support mechanism and encouragement as well as holding you to your commitments. So if you are really serious about getting your life back on track – you know the next step to take.
