Are you finally ready to find your ‘thing’?
I remember when I wanted to leave my big corporate J.O.B. and become a Coach.
Well I didn’t actually know that I wanted to become a Coach at the time – all I knew was that I’d been struggling with feeling unfulfilled, stressed & burned out for some time…and certain other things that were important to me (like my health & sanity!) were really starting to suffer.
So, I knew the time was coming when I would have to make a change…
The trouble was I had no idea what that change might be – all I knew was that I was fast approaching my limit and it was probably time to for me to go and find my ‘thing’.
So, I decided to go looking…and for a long time all I found was false hope and dead-ends.
In fact, it took me nearly 2 years to finally stumble across this thing called ‘executive coaching’ which back in those days was still fairly new…but it seemed to ring a few bells as it combined my talent for business with my passion for inspiring and motivating people to achieve things they never thought possible.
So I decided to give it a go…
And to start off with it felt scary…but it also felt good as the pieces began clicking into place…and after a short time, I knew it just felt ‘right’ in my bones.
That was a great feeling, but it then presented a whole new set of challenges as I tried to figure out the best places to train, how to afford it, where to specialise…and of course how to start gaining some practical experience before I actually knew how to coach!
So why am I telling you all this?
Well, if you’re experiencing something similar and you’re fast approaching your own personal tipping point…and you know in your own bones that it’s time for a change, but you’re not sure what that means – or how to go about it…
Then welcome to the club…and here are a few words of advice!
Firstly, there will be scores of people claiming that if you just follow the same pathway they took…then you too will find your ‘happily ever after’ – just like they did.
Because everyone is different and what works for somebody else won’t necessarily work for you…because let’s be honest, nobody else can do you…like YOU!
And then there will be those who claim that they can tell you exactly where to find your ‘thing’ in terms of which new career path, or new job, or field of study you should choose.
But chances are you’re not looking for something ‘off the shelf’ or you’d be doing it already.
So, what I can tell you is that finding your ‘thing’ is not so much about taking any particular ‘right’ pathway, or following any pre-set direction in-life…
As it is about discovering where your unique gifts & talents lie i.e. your personal brilliance so you can use this as your own personal compass to navigate the next steps to take in a way which makes perfect sense…for YOU!
Because if you want to find the source of your own inspiration, it’s not enough to leverage your strengths without also leveraging your ‘spark’.
And that’s not always so easy to do…because believe it or not…that actually sits in a blindspot for most of us – go figure!
But once you do, you will have finally found your ‘thing’ which will illuminate your ‘where to from here…’ in a way which will feel clear and exciting…
Everyone is brilliant at ‘something’, but what does that mean for you?
Becoming crystal-clear about exactly what this means…will allow you to reclaim your sense of purpose so you can find the inspiration you need…to make the changes you want.
And then you will have saved yourself a whole lot of time and energy – versus the 2 years plus…and then some…it took me!
