Many of us just accept the hand that is dealt to us while some of us live with bad decisions because we can’t see a way to change them, so we just live with them…we go through our daily routines as though we are zombies in a film of our own lives…Many of us have fears that hold us back from being who we believe we are, but very rarely does anyone get to see our inner selves because we keep those ideas locked away for when there is a better time to pay attention to them. Unfortunately we do this and then when it’s just too late, we look back (because hind sight truly is 20/20), and beat ourselves up because we could have and should have. There is never a bad time to make a positive change, we just have to know that permanent change DOES NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT!
Permanent change comes when we stop being fearful of that change…when we empower ourselves to accept what was and embrace what will be. Only then can old habits and beliefs be replaced with positive mindsets and an excitement about your own future! It can be done…it is a process that takes time but still it can be done!
The hard truth is that many times, we as women, take care of all others around us before we take care of ourselves or we settle for relationships (both romantic, professional and otherwise) that are not fulfilling and then wonder why we are disappointed that life isn’t what we thought it would be.
But…what would your life look like if you were able to make all the changes you needed in order to be joyful, not just happy, but JOYFUL? What would your life look like if you actually listened to those small voices in the back of your head, you know the ones that you continue to ignore over and over again? Could you close your eyes and imagine how you would FEEL when you actually took action to be good to you and even learned how to be selfish in a healthy way?!
I want you to keep your eyes closed for a moment longer and think about the BIGGEST challenge you have in your life. I want you to think about how long you have carried that burden around with you…how does this make you feel?
Now I want you to close your eyes one last time and picture your life one year into the future…a year that was full of lessons and breakdowns, but also one where you have successfully tackled that challenge and have put that burden permanently to rest. HOW would that FEEL?!
As your coach I am here to not just be your “rah-rah” and your cheerleader, I am here to help you define your goals and eliminate your challenges one at a time, no matter how overwhelming they may seem. No matter your beliefs, we get THIS life only once, and you owe it to yourself to be the very best you that you can be.
