Embarking on this new global adventure, I feel just like this photograph I took some years ago of a Bottle Brush in bloom in Fremantle, Western Australia; clear, colourful, radiant and shining!
I recently gave up my day job to focus on my training and coaching business and this is making me so happy! To be doing what I want to do, what feels right, following my direction and fulfilling my purpose, at last!
And this is why I am sharing this with you today. Wherever you are and whatever situation you are in, your own potential for success and happiness is right inside you now. When you are ready, you can set yourself free to shine. I know, I have just arrived! So, if you are with me, my first tip to help you is to ask yourself these three key questions
1. What do I want to be in my life?
2. What do I want to do with my life?
3. What do I want to have in my life?
The being, doing and having questions are known, in coaching terms, as goal setting questions.
Answer these questions for yourself and once you have the answers that feel / look / sound / taste / and smell, right for you, then make sure that everyday you are doing things that get you closer to achieving these goals.
In fact, you can ask yourselves these questions everyday! For example, What did I achieve today that gets me closer to what I want to have; who I want to be; and what I want to do?
And you know what will happen – the universe will respond and this is the really exciting bit. If you are true to yourself and if your answers (your goals) are aligned with your personal values (your beliefs and attitudes) – you will be successful and happy.
Like me now, doing what I want to do = supporting, motivating and inspiring people through my work; having what I want to have = my own training and coaching business; and being who I want to be = a catalyst of change and empowerment; helping other people to create exciting new futures for themselves. Join me – it’s a wonderful place to be!
