Your Life Just OK? It Doesnt Have To Be That Way! Live the Life You Really Want To Live!
I have some questions for you. Are you ready? How would your rate your life on a scale from one to ten; 10 being fantastic and 1 being the worst it could possibly be? Are you happy with the most important aspects of your life? And note that I didn't say are you content or are you satisfied. I said are you HAPPY with your life the way it is now? If you are, why are you happy? If you are not, why not? I urge you to be specific when you answer those questions.
Most people are unable to say that they are truely happy with their lives the way they are currently and they say that it has been a long time since they have been so.
Think about this: You get up every morning and go to work. Many people do work that they don't really enjoy, but "that's what they know and have been trained to do." They feel fortunate to even have a job in today's world. They spend on the average between 10 and 14 hours each and every day doing something that has to do with work: getting ready, commuting and actually working, yet they don't love what they are doing. It is merely a job. It's a profession. It's a way to make money. They save some money each month... if they can afford to do so. Some can afford to save more than others. They take two to three weeks vacation each year, BUT often times they cannot afford to go away to the places they would really like to go to, because it costs too much. So they stay home or take day trips with the kids instead. They buy a house and are often strapped with the mortgage to such an extent that they can afford to buy only things that are necessary and maybe a little more. Then, after years of working hard, it's time to retire, not being able to be sure that they will collect the social security check that is rightfully theirs. They give the house and all their belongings to the kids along with what little money they have left. And then they make a graceful departure from this great planet called earth and go on to meet their maker.
Is that the way it was meant to be? If your answer to that question is yes, WHO SAID that life was meant to be that way? Society? The government? Your friends? The family? Colleagues who are doing the same thing?
Does any of this sound familiar? If it does, rest assured that you are not alone.
And you know what? It really and truly does NOT have to be that way? There are millions of people in this world that wake up every single day and are happy with their work, their quality of life, their lives in general and YOU can be one of those people. You only have to take the first step. Remember that if you keep doing what you're doing, you will most probably continue to get the same results you are getting now. If you can look yourself in the mirror and honestly say, you are happy with that, then my hat is off to you.
If, however, you would like to change something and you don't know where to begin, but are interested in finding your path, your motivation, that something special that would make your life much more rewarding and interesting. If you would like to find it. If you would like to do it, but don't know where to begin. If you've already tried and it didn't work out, but still have that desire burning inside, there are resources out there to help you make your dreams come true and help you enjoy the success you want.
All you have to do is ask for help from a good coach. Take the first step now. You will be happy you did.
So, the only question left to ask is: What'cha Gonna Do?
