A New Perspective
Your life has a storyline made up of external events, the stuff that happens on the surface. This can mean anything from family dynamics to career challenges. But your happiness and fulfillment depend on what lies underneath -- how you show up every day. How you are INSIDE yourself.
What you believe becomes your experience.
How you feel internally may not be visible to the rest of the world, but it IS what you live.
And this determines the choices you make.
If you feel confident, you are more likely to take a risk to grow your business.
If you feel the sting of self-doubt, you may play it safe and take no risks at all.
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE, AND YOU CHANGE WHAT IS POSSIBLE
You CAN choose to think differently. Instead of rehearsing what you don’t want, give full rein to what you do want. Allow creativity, positivity and openness to do their work. Through their perspective, you will begin to see your situation in an entirely new way.
This new way of seeing may feel uncomfortable at first. But that’s how we know we are on our way to something meaningful. Every stage of life has its wisdom – when we choose to pay attention to it.
You may ask yourself:
" Am I yearning for something more?”
This yearning holds valuable information for you.
My clients have all experienced this longing for something more. Here is some of what they shared with me:
“I am tired of this self-doubt! I know I am smart and educated, but I still trust others’ opinions before my own.” “I don’t trust myself to make good decisions or make the best of my life.”
Leadership in Business
“I know I am the inspiration for my company, but I am also the cause of many of our difficulties. I don’t want to be that owner who the employees blame for their problems. How do I change this?”
Achieving my Goals
“I have wanted to start a new business for a long time but find myself getting nowhere.”
“I would like to pass my medical exams, but I struggle without knowing why!”
“I would like to be comfortable and feel good about my body, but I struggle during quiet moments. I am still working on this!”
“I find myself reacting to everything and everyone instead of driving things myself.” “I have great ideas - too many of them, in fact! There aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done.”
“I am doing many things to help myself, but something is missing and I don’t know what that is.” “I know I am capable, but I have no clue how to get what I want.”
“When I have an important but uninteresting task to complete, I struggle to get started. I put things off for far too long. It gets me into big trouble!”
“I deliberate endlessly and then get really frustrated! I get stuck thinking the only solution is finding the perfect solution.”
“I know what I need to do; I just don’t do it!”
“Something needs to change, but I have no idea where I want to go.” “I find myself going in circles, waiting for some focused inspiration to take over.”
Fill the Longing “I feel a longing for something different, better. I’ve done so many things to improve my life and my health, but I still feel something is missing. I’m not happy.”
Feel in Control
“I feel driven by circumstances in my life. I hate to admit it, but I am suffering, and it makes me feel like a failure. It seems that I live from one crisis to another. Could it be different?”
“I feel like I’m all over the place. My desk at work is a mess and I can’t get on top of it. It’s a metaphor for the rest of my life.”
“I just want peace at the end of the day. There is conflict at home and at work. I feel nothing is ever quite right.”
“Everything seems to happen all at once, and I never know if I can keep up.”
“I finally know what kind of relationship I want, but I don’t know how to make it happen at this point in my life.”
“I think it would be a good idea to change my career, but I feel a little confused about how to leverage my strengths and make a successful choice.”
