At a Crossroads
At certain stages in life it can feel as if you’ve come to the end of a particular road. You may want to find a new direction, but are unable to see any clear way forward. You may feel unsure about where to start or perhaps you’re fearful of actually taking the first step. I know what it’s like to struggle to turn your life around and move in a completely different direction and I feel passionate about supporting others in engaging with both the inner and outer aspects of the change process. Life transitions can be incredibly challenging, but also potentially enriching and transformative experiences.
Making Life Changes
How committed are you really to making changes in your life?
Rate your level of commitment on a scale of 1-10, where 1 is very low and 10 is the highest possible. If it’s less than a 6, it’s probably not very likely that you’re going to do what it takes to bring about inner and outer change.
There are basically 3 fundamental things that need to be in place to facilitate change.
1. To have a deep belief in the possibility of creating the change
2. To have a strong intention to actualise the change you’re aspiring towards
3. To be willing to do whatever is necessary to bring about the change
If any of these three elements is missing, it’s much less likely that you’ll make the change you’re aspiring towards. When you stay in situations that no longer serve you, such as a relationship you’ve outgrown or a job you don’t like or may even have come to hate, you end up feel diminished and unfulfilled. Real fulfilment comes from being true to yourself and living an authentic life. It’s the difference between surviving and really flourishing. For things to change in any significant way, you need to TAKE ACTION. What kind of life do you really want to create? Think about what it’s costing you to keep on doing the same things and staying in the same place.
It’s often hard to initiate major life changes on your own. We all need support at times and we all have blindspots, which can be very difficult to recognise unless someone else helps to shine a light on them. If you’re in the midst of an identity crisis and feel held back by limiting beliefs or self-sabotaging behaviour, I can help you to recognise ways that you may be sabotaging yourself and to understand what is trying to emerge through the crisis. Through the coaching process I will support you in developing a clear, focused plan for the life you want to create and I will hold you accountable for taking steps to make changes. Whatever your particular needs are, I can offer you real support to move through obstacles and to create a life that is the highest expression of who you authentically are.
You reach a choice point when you recognise that you can either continue doing the things you’ve always done, in which case your situation is not likely to change very much. Or, you can step up and take action to create the kind of life you would like to be leading. If you’re still unsure about what’s the best way forward for yourself, I invite you to go back and re-read the 3 critical elements described earlier for making radical changes. Think about where you are in the change process and about how committed you really are to taking action to change your situation. When all 3 of the elements in the change process are in place and you are basically prepared to do whatever it takes, change becomes almost inevitable. It’s then just a question of when it happens.
