How often do you go through your days feeling like you are just going through the motions, but not really connecting with life?
Many people follow a path in their career and/or relationships with a sense of obligation and an unclear awareness of how they have gotten to this place. Moving through life with the blinders on, not seeing opportunities to “cross the bridge” and enter a new path in their life.
Twenty-three years of my career was spent at Kimberly-Clark Corporation. While I was there, I received recognition for being so driven and organized. It was challenging and ever changing – which was appealing. But…it was also intense, stressful and emotionally draining (not so appealing). The consistent, stable income was nice, however, I felt trapped there. Many times, my heart would ache because I wanted so much more out of life. Sure, I already had a lot of positive momentum with my coaching, speaking and consulting business – which I started in parallel to my Kimberly-Clark job – but I wanted more.
Through the guidance of my own life coach and my own careful planning, I was able to leave that career and dive full time into my business. Yay!!
Now, my goal is to help even more people to see what’s possible in their life and to help them to discover their path to positive change. To help people find small and big changes to energize their life and to find ways to better align with the true, authentic, amazing person they are!
• When in your life have you felt like time flew by and you felt truly happy?
• What have you often dreamed of doing, but lacked the courage to do?
• What is the first thing you could do to make a positive change in your life?
When making changes, it’s important to see the vision, but to also step back and look at the first few steps (rather than ALL the steps it will take to make the change). So, my advice is to dream big and focus on the first few steps that you could start with right now. Then DO IT – take one step, then two steps.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” Lao Tzu
Whether you reflect on your own, share your dreams with a friend or seek the help of a coach, my hope for you is that you are able to begin moving toward a place where you feel a deep sense of warmth in your heart and a magnificent sense of joy. These positive emotions are a perfect way to know when you have “crossed the bridge” and entered the right path for your life!
