Do you ever feel like you are meant for something "more" in life, but you have been stuck for so long, you feel tired, depleted, and hopeless? Does it sometimes feel like a giant brick wall is standing between you and a life of happiness?
Do the years of fear, negative self-talk, and people pleasing make it feel like you can't even see what's on the other side of the wall-- like you've actually forgotten what would make you happy in the first place?
I'd like to share the story of a client who created a life that once seemed unobtainable
On January 27th of last year, I got an email from Kate in California. It simply read:
"I'm ready for a life of happiness and fulfillment if you think you can help me."
When we spoke on the phone, Kate wasn't even sure what that life would look like. She had been stuck in a dead-end office manager position for so long, she couldn't picture a life beyond 65 hours a week and a desk. She was struggling in her social life, repeating the same unhealthy patterns in relationships, and even basic self-care had become a struggle. In our first call, she told me she couldn't even find the motivation to shower each day.
I asked her where her life would be in 12 months if she didn't make a change, and her answer was direct and to the point...
No, she wasn't suicidal and it wasn't a cry for help. Yet, she felt like staying trapped in a life where she lacked direction and over-gave at a job she hated was akin to committing passive suicide. She wanted a life lived on HER terms. She just needed the help from a mentor who could show her the path.
Within a couple of sessions, we got clear on her goal-- to use her passion for cosmetology to help other women feel beautiful. From there, we did the "inner work" to uncover the limiting beliefs keeping her paralyzed by fear and thoughts of not being "good enough." Then we created an action plan to accelerate her success.
After 5 months, Kate left her comfort zone, quit her job, and followed her dreams.
One of the great things about coaching is how it's unlike any other investment you can make. As opposed to a car, which loses 30% of its value the minute you drive it off the lot, or a diamond ring which loses its value the minute it slips onto your finger... coaching appreciates in value over time.
The skills and life strategies I teach my clients learn are timeless. They work for you immediately, but they will still work in 5 years, 50 years, and probably 100 years from now.
When Kate's time with me was up, she had a foundation to move forward with clarity and confidence. Like so many of my former clients, she kept me updated on her journey. In September of last year, I got this message:
"I am so bursting with joy everyday. And when I am feeling scared or down, I get back to meditating, focusing on my breath, and remembering my purpose statement we created. I just strive to be happy, no matter the circumstance.
And gosh, it's made life free and joyful. My soul feels alive."
To me, this is what LIFE AMPLIFIED is about. It's not about delaying happiness into the future when you get a new job, make more money, find a new relationship, or reach some other goal on the horizon.
LIFE AMPLIFIED means creating an awe-inspiring vision and finding joy and fulfillment in the present moment as you take daily, courageous action to make your dreams real. It's about turning "someday" into "right now."
LIFE AMPLIFIED is about feeling the self-respect which comes from connecting to yourself and something bigger than you.
LIFE AMPLIFIED means waking up each day knowing you are living life on your terms, rather than continuing to meet the expectations of parents, family, friends, and Corporate America. It's about refusing to settle even a minute longer.
Oh, by the way-- Kate just got her cosmetology license this week. Her post on Instagram was one of the proudest moments I've had as a coach.
"At 31, I walked away from security, but I also walked away from unhappiness. I grabbed my dreams by the balls and decided to squeeze real hard... Trust in your internal guidance system and always follow your joy. The doors will always open. PS- I start my new job TODAY!" #HappinessIsAChoice #FollowYourDreams
In a relatively short amount of time, Kate has managed to do what others only hope for. She has created a life that feels as good in real life as it looks on Instagram.
