It is just me or does anyone else have dark days? Apart from the death of my dear father the past year has been one of the most difficult of my entire life. I've never felt such a strong opposition of emotions before. Such massive joys from the successes but huge pits of darkness from other aspects of my life. Some days I’ve felt like spending all day sobbing. And yes, I've allowed myself to wallow a little. I’ve taken myself off to the bathroom to cry on a few occasions, but then I’ve had a good chat with myself and snapped out of it. It has been emotional, incredibly confusing, wonderful and brilliant; this is the rollercoaster we call life… with the twist of a new baby!
What I’ve learnt this past year, is that nothing …and I mean nothing, is impossible if you've got the nerve. I've done things that I never thought possible. I've extended my financial reach more than ever before, I'm raising a child and with the support of an marvellous team including my husband we've completely renovated our home… oh and I’ve set up an incredible international business, learnt how become a marketeer and have completed 4 training courses, all whilst juggling diapers and sleepless nights.
If you’d have asked me 2 years ago that this year would transpire as it has, I'd have laughed (a slightly crazed laugh) and then laughed at you some more.
What has given me the motivation is my deep connection to my “why”. I want to build an incredible life for my baby girl and our little family. I want more than to see my child just at the weekends, work to pay a mortgage and have one holiday a year. I want financial freedom. I don't want to be reliant on a wage in an uncertain industry, where 10% of the workforce is cut annually, or to settle on not receiving the pay rise I so deserve. I want inspire people just like you, to do the same and reach your true potential. For years I told myself that I couldn't run my own business because I pay the mortgage; well this story I told myself simply isn’t true.
Are you done with feeling stuck? And you know you are destined for more? Do you feel like you are poised for greatness? Do you wish you could snap your fingers and have all your bills paid and a million in the bank. This was me.
One day I woke up feeling slightly depressed, I had all the same excuses running through my head. I knew that I had to do something otherwise we would be in serious financial trouble, but I was still giving myself reason to bury my head in the sand. The previous day I had heard about the Mel Robbins method of counting down 5-4-3-2-1 before making a big decision, and then I just did it…
I took that bold next step and hired a coach. Financially I thought I shouldn't but my heart was screaming to me; I needed to make a massive change in my life. I lifted the drafted email that had sat in my outbox for months…. 5-4-3-2-1 and then I hit send, in a nano second it was off to my coaches inbox. I was scared of the financial commitment, but I did it anyway. I said to myself “enough is enough, let’s get this show on the road” …and every single day, I am so grateful that I did!
I couldn’t have achieved the success I have without my coach and mentor. She guided me through some pretty dark days and she celebrates the successes with me too! And right now I as sit writing this to you, I am enjoying every moment of the successes with the sun on my face, outside with my baby girl. Right now in this moment I am ecstatically, can't quite believe it, pinch yourself happy!
So, if you think hiring a coach is something that is right for you but you’re giving yourself excuses as to why you shouldn’t, practice Mel Robbins 5 second rule. Count down from 5, and do the thing! Book a 30 minute discovery call with me.
Coaching has changed my life and it may changes yours. I cannot wait to hear from you!
