“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah Winfrey
Have you stepped into that great big adventure? Are you living the life of your dreams?
If not, what’s holding you back?
Do you have all these great ideas but there’s that little (or not so little) voice in your head telling you it’s a great idea but it will never work? Maybe the voice isn’t in your head, maybe you’ve shared your dreams with family and/or friends and maybe they’ve even shared your enthusiasm but then they’ve said you’re being unrealistic, or perhaps they straight up look at you like you’re crazy and tell you there’s no way that will work?
This used to happen to me all the time too. I used to share all these ideas with people: ‘I’d love to do xxxx, wouldn’t that be great if it could happen?’ and people would say I lived in a fantasy land, on my own little planet. Looking back I see where the problems were – I wasn’t saying I was going to do it – I was saying I’d love to and wouldn’t it be great if… I was leaving the door open for doubt and uncertainty. My hopes and dreams were big and scary and I guess I kinda wanted some sort of validation, someone to say ‘that’s amazing, you can do it’, someone to have my back when times get tough.
But I’ve since learned if you want your dreams to come true YOU are the one who has to state clearly that this is what you are doing. When you’re friends and family realize you’re serious they’ll have your back and they’ll support you (and if they don’t… well maybe you need to question that relationship). I’ve also learned that having a great, kick-ass coach is a big help in achieving what you want too.
Overcoming the fear or finding a way to get past the blocks can be the toughest part. Sometimes you take a deep breath and jump just to see what happens, other times you want a bit more of a plan and maybe someone to help you bring a bit of clarity to the plan, unblock your mind, overcome your fears.
This is where coaching can be such a great help and motivation. You will still be the one doing the work but your coach will be with you, asking you probing questions, going deep into your hopes and dreams and fears, supporting you while you dig down into yourself to find the answers, setting you tasks to work on and goals to achieve and most of all being your biggest cheerleader on your journey to the most amazing version of you and your life. At least, this is what will happen if you work with me.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if 2018 was the year that you brought your dreams into reality? Let’s see if we are a good fit for working together – drop me an email using the form on the ‘Work With Me’ page and we can set up a coaching experience. This experience is free and it will be exactly like a coaching session with me – I won’t be giving you a sales pitch or expecting you to sign up to anything else unless you really want to. This session or call (depending on where you live) is entirely yours – you have the experience, you decide if you want it to continue or not.
What have you got to lose? An hour or so of your time to find out if coaching is for you? An hour or so of your time to start clearing away the blocks that are holding you back from your dreams?
