We always want something different it seems. A new car, a new job, to win the lottery, to have children that excel in school – the list is unlimited. However not many of us are not willing to work at something long and hard. We want it to be easy. Accomplishing our life’s goals or dreams, or wanting to be happier requires effort. ‘Nothing good comes easy’, so I hear.
For me, I’ve always had a coach of one type or another by my side. It’s not that I’m unmotivated to achieve my goals, but the support has been invaluable. A business coach, a spiritual coach, a life purpose coach and more lately, a transformational coach are some of the ones that I have chosen on my journey. The times in my life where I was ‘winging it alone’ were the times that I felt I was going in circles – circles in my head and circles in my life’s direction. You know, just like the hamster on his little wheel; pedalling fast but going nowhere.
A few times I have used a therapist or a counsellor when coaching wasn’t even heard of as a profession. This approach didn’t allow me to necessarily think for myself, or choose the direction of my journey. There were too many judgments, suggestions and opinions that didn’t allow me to ‘feel’ what was right for me. You know, that gut feeling we all have but ignore.
We all know what is good for us. Sometimes you can go through periods in life, short or long, where you question everything and nothing seems to be going where you want it to go. I’ve found these times were from a lack of clarity, within myself. The answers I know were inside of me, but I couldn’t hear them for the lack of peace, harmony and faith.
Sometimes the answers become clear in one session! Sometimes it takes longer but there is always the greatest sense of inspiration when you work with someone that has no agenda but to see YOU succeed! You know you are capable. You know you can do anything. Nothing is hard but that which is in our minds. If you want life altering changes, book a session with me – I’ll help you along your journey with passion, and you will never again feel resigned that this is all you can do or be! You are ready for this!

What is standing in the way of you reaching your dreams? Are there areas in your life that need just a little bit more attention that would make all the difference you have been wishing for?
Whether you want a transformation in your health, your business, your job, your family or with your closest relationships, there are two things that can transform your whole world in as little as just 2 months!
Transformation Tip #1: Put Yourself First
I know, this sounds harsh and downright impossible when you have a demanding boss, young children to care for and a spouse to cherish but this is the most integral part of your whole transformational journey. Even for a small window of time every day, you must put yourself first. You have to set some time aside for yourself to allow the incredible YOU to emerge (or re-emerge).
What area of your life is ready for transformation?
Take steps to ready yourself for these changes and then fly! For example, if you are wanting to experience a health and body transformation, you must put yourself first long enough to carve out a window of time to joyfully move that body and prep some healthy meals.
If you’re not quite able to wrap your head around putting yourself first, focus on the fact that your family will benefit from having the best version of you, ever!
If you are developing a new soul business, you must find time in your day to put yourself first, so that you can make waves with your new venture! And again, any benefits you are experiencing personally, will naturally trickle out to your family and friends.
Take some prime transformational time to devote energy to yourself and your desires, because we often let ourselves have the left-over minutes of the day, but by then, we are usually exhausted and have nothing left to give to ourselves.
Transformation Tip #2: Act as though your transformation is complete!
If you were already at your perfect body size and shape, what would you do to maintain it? If you were already eating a clean diet, it would be easy to stay on that eating plan.
If you already have a thriving business, what would you be doing to keep it producing? You wouldn’t be worrying about the small details and getting caught up on the day to day things that make you busy, you would be focusing on the larger visionary pieces that make you money!
Create space in your life to envision the things you want the most and then take these two steps to make it happen.
Just imagine how much your life can change in a very short period of time if you take these tips seriously. And think about how good you would feel NOW if you had only started 2 MONTHS AGO!!!! So start now. You will thank yourself for it!
