“All of us are in the manufacturing industry – manufacturing either our own happiness or unhappiness.”
― Ogwo David Emenike
Does your life feel like it is spinning out of control? Does it seem more like a demolition derby than the life you were hoping to live? Does it feel like others are charging into you to stop all movement in your life?
For many people life is out of control. Time is going by to swiftly. The sound of disappointment only screams louder. The cries,”When will things get better?”, echo in your mind. Other people tug at your for attention. Friends and family aren’t doing things that please you and you just want them to stop ruining your life.
The carousel spins out of control and all you can do is hold on tighter and think this isn’t how life should be. When things appear to be out of control or before they get that far, stop and ask yourself “What is it that you really want?” Take some time to evaluate what it is that you really want. Many people are getting off the carousel and designing a lifestyle that works for them. That may mean giving up some of the material items in their life and living in a simpler way. High paying jobs often come with a lot of stress. Living from paycheck to paycheck often creates a lot of stress. In the end it boils down to the choices that are being made. What choices are you making and are they leading you to the life you want to live?
Is your life careening out of control to a destination that you are unaware of? For many people life is out of control. There is too little time to do what is important and what isn’t important takes far too much time. For others the journey of life just shows up, there is no rhyme or reason to the day, it just is. Some people ache for control, direction and a destination and claw for it every moment. Are you clawing your way to a better life?
Top performers want to make a difference and they are willing to make the necessary changes so that they can get the most out of life. Whether it is building a better relationship, finding the right career or optimizing their day, top performers want to do better. Top performers aren’t willing to be victims to the circumstances that show up in their lives, they want to take charge and direct their life rather than having life direct them. What is your life like? What do you want your life to be like?
Coaching, life coaching, career coaching, and transition coaching is a fairly new industry that has as a primary objective of working with people who want to move forward in life and business to a new level of performance, satisfaction, personal happiness, fulfillment and results. For many years coaching was reserved for top CEO’s and those willing to pay thousands of dollars per hour for a coach. Now coaching is affordable and practical for a much larger audience.
Therapy and counseling were the mechanisms available to many people in the past and in too many cases the client never achieved the results they desired. Coaching focuses in on the future,a future that can be, with work and accountability. For most people changing a few habits will result in remarkable results, better time management, work/life optimization and greater satisfaction. What have you wanted to change for the better and haven’t been able to achieve?
“Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.”
~ Edith Wharton
