What do you really desire?
What makes you feel good?
So in alignment with your skills and things you love?
Even if you work in an organisation or have a business that is not fully what you love, what are some of the things about it you do like?
As an evidence based coach, speaker, podcaster, Uni lecturer and writer, I never dismissed what made me feel fulfilled, fun and enjoyable-and always pursued those. All of those things I do are things I LOVE and that light me up. And of course there are always challenges even in those situations. But there is a deeper sense of I so enjoy doing this that I will work out how to resolve the difficult situation and will not focus on it-and some of the difficult situations are stressful and exhausting. I just push through.
So what is it you love to do?
How can you at least get some of that into your life?
Even if it is just an hour a week. You’ll find that by doing that it brings a different perspective to many other things in your life, even those that at the moment aren’t ideal, but for the time being have to be there.
Make the most of every minute there. Be present. Appreciate everything about it. And be grateful.
You don’t have to do what you love every hour of every day.
Or even every day!
Just get a bit of it into your life and you will see how much it positively impacts the rest of your life.
Small steps-big outcomes
Once I saw a woman who was a single mother of 2 or 3 children interviewed on TV. She had a passion to write poetry. But working full time while also managing the family on her own left her with the view that there was no time for poetry. Her coach asked her if she could just find one hour a week to write. She said yes, she probably could. She found that hour and what happened was the fulfilment of that hour led to her finding more hours and soon she was reading her poetry at the local library with lots of great feedback.
Go for it!
And you’ll probably find some big surprises of people who support you, help you and give you further ideas! Enjoy!
