The Perfect Life is as realistic as Unicorn Poop!

I love Simon Sinek!  I’ve been following him for years and his mantra about ‘asking for more help is liberating’  really resonates at this time of year; people commonly put off making changes in their lives whilst they prioritise enjoying the festive season but when the new year comes we take on all sorts of change and challenges. 
 
If you do decide to make a change in your life consider ‘ASKING FOR MORE HELP‘- its quite liberating when you do ask for help and realise you’re surrounded by people who want to help but just never thought you needed it. When I decided to put myself out there as a Life Coach I worried about portraying a perfect life with all the answers when in reality ‘the perfect life’ is as realistic as unicorn poop’. No-one has all the answers but someone has the answer.
 
Rather than being a perceived sign of weakness ‘asking for help’ is a win win situation – the person who helps you feels the reward of a good deed and you get some support.
Pace yourself, be kind to yourself and ask for more help

‘Carry On!’ OR ‘Move On!’???

 

The internet is full of quotes, motivational and thought provoking, but more recently I’ve started to notice a contradiction in their messages. This is one of my favourites. It’s hard to know sometimes when you should ‘carry on’ or ‘move on’. There’s an element of fear in both these messages. If I give up, I’m a quitter. If I carry on doing the same thing but not getting results, I’m insane. All these intended ‘inspirational quotes’ can have the opposite affect.

With some of my clients it takes as much strength and courage to stop trying as it does to solider on. Often, it’s about identifying what is best for you….. (Put your own Oxygen mask on first!) What’s stopping you from taking THAT path? Importantly, whichever quote you choose to follow at this moment in time (‘carry on’ or ‘move on’) that doesn’t have to be the end of the story.

If you decide later you’re not happy with your decision, you don’t like where you are or where you’ve end up, move. You are not a tree………
