I was hitting my head against a wall. I knew I was getting in my own way but I didn’t know how to change it. I knew I was meant to work on my own and not answer to anyone. I knew that my life’s calling was not what I was doing. I was constantly trying to fit a round peg in a square hole.
I wanted to be able to be successful financially without having to follow any corporate rules. Family has always important to me. I wanted both time freedom and financial success. I wanted to be able to provide experiences for my family and my kids. I wanted the money to pay for those experiences and the time to have the experiences. And I wanted to be in charge of my life. I was able to have either the time freedom or the financial success but not both at the same time. But there were always had trade-offs.
I thought that if I could figure out how to have all I wanted, I would be happy with myself. I was being told that I could make the money I wanted to make but didn’t really believe I would be able to make the money without giving away my time freedom. I thought I would have to do what I didn’t want to do to have what I wanted. But, I couldn’t make myself do those things.
What wasn’t working was forcing myself to do things, believing I had to follow someone else’s structure, forcing myself to accept that there were only two roads to choose from, repeating the same habits. I didn’t realize I had those habits until I started coaching with you.
At first when I considered the cost of coaching, I had some fear that I would waste my money. I wanted to be able to get out of it enough to justify the cost. Then, once I started coaching, I got so much value every time we would meet so the investment was worth it.
With coaching, I realized that I could make a choice, that I didn’t have to follow a formula. That I could blaze my own trail. I learned how to recognize that I had a lot of “have to” language in my thinking. I started noticing how I had myself convinced that I was doing what I didn’t want to do, I felt completely disempowered. By realizing that I always had a choice, I started living from an empowered and positive place.
I was in a hopeless cycle. The lights started coming on as I realized that there was another way to do this. I became willing to do the work and got freedom, power and clarity. I saw that I had patterns and habits that I had the power to change. I saw that I could create an empowering cycle, empowering habits. I allowed myself to dream again by creating my own vision.
Your coaching showed me I could change my mind. I could challenge my thinking. I am empowered, I have the power to make choices. Being in a group allowed me to see through their eyes things I couldn’t see for myself. By participation in group coaching, I related to others in the group who were also blinded by their limiting beliefs. As I started seeing through their beliefs, I could see through mine.
I’ve learned to started trusting myself, trust my intuition.
