I recently had a conversation with my coach that completely rocked my world!
For the past few months, I have been struggling. I knew that my business was my life’s purpose, but I had hit a wall. I had tried everything. I journaled to dive in and uncover my own limiting beliefs. I meditated and read more than usual. I tried focusing on doing things to raise my vibration. I updated my vision board and visualized myself experiencing the images on it.
I felt like I was doing all of the right things, yet I was completely stuck.
I desperately wanted to get past this hurdle, and I knew I was going to need help to do it. I made my request for help to the Universe and was not surprised when my wish was granted quickly. I met the most amazing and inspiring coach.
The first couple times we spoke, I was excited and secretly hesitant. Despite knowing I had asked for help, my head told me that I had done a ton of internal work and that I was making lots of progress. My mind also told me that the book she recommended was just what I needed to figure out the missing piece of my personal puzzle. I knew in my heart that I wanted to work with her and that it would change my life. But the thoughts in my head wouldn’t let up!
My mind just kept saying, “you can do this on your own!”
I told her I wasn’t ready and tried for about a month to apply what I had learned on my own. There were definitely some shifts and many improvements, but I still felt like there was something standing in my way.
When she reached out to see how I was doing, I was almost back to the point of tears. I was frustrated and exhausted. I had studied. I had learned. I was acting on my new knowledge and it still wasn’t working.
Why couldn’t I figure this out?!?
I will never forget that life changing conversation when she lovingly brought my attention to my high tolerance for mediocrity.
From the outside, I have a wonderful life and it appears that I’m living the dream. Most days it feels like that for me too. But I was also allowing myself to choose weekends filled with drinking instead of creativity, outdoor adventures and road trips. I was allowing myself to tolerate living with extremely low levels of energy because I was eating foods that inflamed my body. I was allowing myself to live in this tiny bubble where things were easy and safe. I wasn’t stretching myself and I certainly wasn't thriving.
Since that conversation, my mindset has gone through a significant up-leveling. With this new information, I am looking at decisions from a fresh, new perspective.
Does what I’m about to say yes to align with the extraordinary life I want to live?
I made the powerful decision to take my life to the next level and hire my coach. Already I have experienced an increased level of satisfaction and personal fulfillment. I am working less and creating a bigger impact. And most importantly, I’m enjoying the renewed excitement to experience adventures and create heartwarming memories with Dave & Max. The reason that I share this story is because I know I’m not alone. I know there are others out there who live a life that looks great from the outside, but it’s a different story behind closed doors. Things seem great, but you feel stuck. You want something better and either you don’t know what’s standing in your way or you do know and don’t know how to get past it.
I mean this from my heart when I say that I want you to truly live your best life.
