 Take some time to notice the beautiful world around you today. Let go of the past. Let go of the future. Still you mind in the present and bask in the glory of all that is in this moment. You are here. The practice of mindfulness is one we could all benefit from. Why not start today. Happy Friday everyone.

“What is it that you like doing? If you don’t like it, get out of it, because you’ll be lousy at it. You don’t have to stay with a job for the rest of your life, because if you don’t like it you’ll never be successful in it.” -Lee Iacocca- 

So You Hate Your Job…

Embrace Choice and Move Forward

Year after year I hear the same four words coming from peoples mouths, “I HATE MY JOB”.

So what do you do when you find that you have become one of those people that aren’t happy with their job or career choice? Do you continue to go to work miserable and bitter? Do you let everyone around you know that you are unhappy with your job and work environment? In my opinion the best medicine is to talk it out with someone who can give you the tools to make a change.  A life coach can help. 

Discovering that you hate your job is a difficult feeling to come to grips with but don’t count out its potential positive effects. If you have identified the problem you can most definitely identify your next move.-Ambition In The City-

Embrace Choice and Move Forward

I’m 28 years old and i decided to make a change in my life. After years of wanting to have my own business, I am finally taking the steps to make my dreams come true.

As a student of psychology for many years, I have always enjoyed engaging people. I like to think helping people to be better is why I was put on this earth. I have worked with the chronically ill, the mentally ill, the disadvantaged, and the physically drained. The one thing these people all have in common is “Choice”. Whether you are dealing with an illness or a barrier in life you always have a choice. The choice to overcome, to fight, or to change is always yours and yours alone. Your choices are only as limited as you make them to be.

Many people aspire to be a great many things in life, but only half of these people really make it happen. Why is that? Could it be due to fear, lack of resources, obligations, family. People come to me everyday with dozens of reasons why they “can’t” make a change in their lives. I am here to tell them “they can and they will”.

All to often when people share their “wants” and aspirations their positive thoughts are usually followed by various “limiting statements”. These statements come in the form of “i can’t because…”, “I don’t have enough time to..”,or  ”I don’t have enough money to..”. Think about the times you have shared a goal or desire with a family member or friend. How many times did these individuals listen intently to a dream you may have for yourself only to share their own limiting thoughts around how you might not be able to pull this off. Now I would like to think our friends and family members are only making these comments because they care about us. No one wants to see someone try and fail, but whose to say you’re going to fail if you haven’t even tried.

So what’s coaching? 

First and foremost, Life Coaching is very different then therapy. Therapy is usually focused on healing “old wounds” while life coaching assists people to move forward and take control of today. A therapist wishes to tap into your past to identify the reasons why you are where you are today. A life coach will challenge their clients to identify what they wish to improve upon, to get out of their comfort zone, and determine their preferred future regardless of their past. A Life coach is not there to fix your problems, but to help you uncover the options that have been available to you all along. Whether you are looking to improve your career, a relationship, your health, or physical well being, coaching can guide you to be your own intervention.
