If you are at the point where you want to change your life, I’m excited for you. This is Day 1 of Your New Life.
To get started, I’ve got some questions: Why do you want to change your life?
Because I’m not happy, Greg. Jeez!
I get that things aren’t where you want them to be. I’m not trying to get down on you, I’m just trying to help you get clear on why you must change. That will keep you going when the journey gets tough.
During my coaching session this morning I asked my client, “Why do you want to change your life?”
He said that was a good question and he’d have to think about it for a minute. He already knew down deep, but I don’t think he’d ever taken the time to articulate it and bring it to his conscious mind.
After a few moments he said, “Greg, I’m tired of just going through the motions. I’m not sure if I know my purpose. I think if I can figure that out, it will help me make the changes to make my life better.”
That was a start. I then followed up with, “What do you mean by ‘better’?”
He replied that he wanted to earn an income to provide for his family so they could live in a better neighborhood with better schools and they would have everything they need.
“Beyond that, Greg, I feel stuck. I don’t know where I’m going next. I don’t feel needed where I work, and my self-confidence is low. I want to find purpose in my life and work so I can love what I do and take care of my family.”
Now, we were getting somewhere.
Why must you change?
Take some time to figure it out and write it down. Make it as real and emotional as you can.
Do you want to be more excited about your career, your spouse, your relationships, your family, and your spiritual development?
Do you want freedom to control your own time, career, vacation, and life? Freedom to travel the world with the people you love?
Do you want to generate abundant amounts of income so you can do everything you’ve ever dreamed of, take care of your family, and give to help others?
Why must you change your life?
Once you’ve figured that out, you can move on to what you want and how to start doing it. We’ll do that next.
