Deciding to become a Life Coach was an idea I struggled with ALOT. That awful mind chatter and overthinking kicked in and I thought, "HOW can I advise people on fixing their own lives when MINE is a MADHOUSE most of the time?" I contemplated hard on why people would invest their hard earned time and energy into partnering up with ME? WHY would they choose me to run along side them during the biggest marathon they'll ever run in their lives? Why do I qualify to coach them to a win? The answers were simple.
1. People come to me for advice, because I authentically show up to my own life everyday. I don't sugar coat the bitter pieces of it. I choose to live life on its own terms. Whatever is thrown my way, I CONTINUE to lift up, stay up, show up, and show out. All the while, striving to pull others up out of the ashes with me.
2. There's no better human being equipped to assist another with their own journey to transformation, then the one whose cocoon is filled with the very same transitional experiences. There's that old saying, "Birds of a feather, flock together." THAT'S TRUE, because I too, "started from the bottom..but now I'm here." I've personally battled through hardships, shame, regret, abandonment, self loathing, anxiety, depression, self sabotage, pain, sorrow, heartbreak, the list goes on. BUT...I rose. Everyday I continue to rise, so I KNOW others can too.
3. I've come to realize that the more we invest in ourselves, the more apt we are to show up and do the work. See, anyone can listen to advice than tuck it away for later, but when you ACTIVELY DECIDE that YOU ARE WORTH your own investment, then you've already hit the biggest return of your life. Partnering up with someone whose willing to run along side you until the race is won is just a bonus. We won't stop. There's no reason too. You see, the point of it all, is to keep going, because our goals, dreams, and aspirations are LIMITLESS.
As you go into this year, I'm asking you to choose YOU. Make the choice to become the VERY BEST self you can be. Do it this year..and every year. Make the investment. INVEST IN YOU.
