In June of 2016 I finally took the leap that I have been wanting to take for some time. And when I say, “wanting” to, I mean researching, obsessing, googling, talking about, dreaming about coaching for a long time. It was a full-court press of information overload. One day in the spring, I saw an ad come across my Instagram feed and I clicked it. It was a link to a free worksheet to find out if coaching is right for you. Of course, I needed to know! Would this be the sign I was after???? As a result of that little ad, I finally found the program that felt right for me and that appealed to me in ways that none of the others one had. I was in! And scared shitless.
I had been researching for so long and filling my brain up with all of the information I needed to make a logical decision. My heart kept pulling me in the direction of coaching but my fear always popped up and I found an excuse to justify why a certain program didn’t feel right.
I can’t believe how much has changed for me. These past few months have been a period of significant commitment to the course, to my own growth and to creating my own programs and systems for a coaching practice that I want to share. I have created something that I am very proud of and while the fear and doubt are still there (albeit diminishing in size, strength and impact), I am ready to share it because the thing that is bigger than my fear is my desire to support and serve people. Nothing makes me feel more engaged than supporting individuals as they create awareness, gain clarity and confidence and take real steps to achieve lasting joy and happiness in their lives. I want to help people make the most of the time they are given by creating a life they are in love with.
We are all given an hourglass with a certain number of grains of sand. We know which direction the sand is flowing, but we have no idea how many grains are left. This time is so precious and I am not willing to waste it by not saying “YES” to the things that are deep in my heart. And because her words are beautiful, I will end with this quote:
what is it you plan to do
with your one
wild and precious life?”
