So, when is it time to invest in a life coach?
As I started writing this blog post, I thought back to the last few months of my corporate career. It seems like a lifetime ago now, but also like it’s been about ten minutes. Time has moved in bizarre and magical ways since 2020.
I remember feeling so lost. Unsure of where on earth I was heading long-term. My entire life and career plan just felt… fuzzy. It was a challenging time, sure. But it was also the best moment to focus on myself and I decided to hire a coach. I made radical changes to almost every area of my life. It was wild. Transformative. Freeing. And the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.
If you’re on the fence about investing in coaching, and committing emotionally and spiritually in yourself, this blog is for you.
Now first up – when we’re thinking of doing something scary, unfamiliar or that takes a whole heap of courage, we tend to put things off until we feel like it’s the right time.
But here’s something that I want you to deeply consider.
We can’t deny that the world and the way that we used to do things has completely changed. We’ve literally witnessed the planet do a complete 360 right in front of our eyes.
Nobody could have foreseen what was to come when the pandemic hit. I mean, who would have thought a superbug was about to bring all our lives to a standstill? That stuff only happens in the movies, right?!
In times of uncertainty, things can become overwhelming and sometimes downright terrifying. Who can blame us for feeling confused or uncertain when we’ve been faced with such bizarre situations in recent years? The pandemic saw us:
I lived in Melbourne throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and we endured a lockdown that spanned 262 days. 262! Nobody could have predicted that.
If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that we really don’t have everything figured out, nor are we in control of things as much as we’d like to be.
✨ Life is wonderfully unpredictable
✨ Our time with our loved ones is fleeting
✨ Anything can happen at any time
Do you have dreams and desires? A deeply-rooted nagging feeling that you’re meant for bigger, better and more beautiful things?
It sounds cliché, but we really don’t have time to waste on toxicity like:
👎🏻 Suppressed dreams
👎🏻 Bottled up emotions
👎🏻 Imaginary fears
When you allow these things to creep in, they’ll take control and hold you back. If you don’t want to live a boring, cookie-cutter life, then only you can break the mold.
If we keep waiting for things to “calm down” or for it to be the “right moment”, we will NEVER be ready and it will never be the right moment!
Because in all honesty it’s never the right time unless YOU decide that it is!
Whilst the pandemic might have prompted lots of people to stop and question their lives and careers, there is still so much typical societal expectation out there.
I’m a woman, in my early 30’s, and I’ve just tipped my whole world on its head. I’m passionately and actively growing a business to make my own wealth. I have freedom – more than I could ever have imagined.
And yet, I feel like the outside world expects me to be “settled down”, starting a family and living a much more conventional life than I’m currently leading. But instead, I’m choosing to do what feels the most aligned with my soul, not what others think I “should” be doing.
Realising this, making these life decisions, having those hard conversations and following my dreams regardless of what others think is what’s best for me, right now, at this moment in time.
But how do you find the confidence to take that leap?
How would it feel if you had someone in your corner who can help you see things a little clearer? This is where a life coach can be the best decision for your future.
What could you be saying YES to right now to light up your soul? ✨
I want to invite you, right NOW to let this be your permission to take that first step. Walk towards your dreams AND stop side-stepping.
Because if not now, then when?
If you need support in clearing through those clouds of self-doubt, so that you can step up confidently in your life then beautiful soul, I’m here to hold your hand and cheer you on.
Here’s the other thing. I would never ask you to invest in yourself if I wasn’t prepared to invest in myself or my own coaching toolkit.
Over the last two years, I have spent close to $30k on coaching courses and 1:1 support. Then there’s all the smaller training courses, personal healing, admin, marketing and website support on top of that.
I made big decisions and bold moves.
I did things that at the time felt left-of-centre, maybe even a little scary, but also so ALIGNED with what I needed. More aligned than spending on shopping, eating out or even traveling.
If I kept deciding that “I can’t afford it”, or “it wasn’t the right time” (which I did about leaving my corporate salary), I’d probably be stuck in my same 9-5 even now. Not being able to have flexible working days. Instead I work when, where and with who I want to and I’m even able to work remotely while traveling the world.
I made my faith bigger than my fear, and decided that success was my only option 💖
I invested in myself, my business and my future success 💖
Healing from things that you never felt possible is 100% achievable IF you are willing to invest your time, energy and money in yourself.
There are some questions I like to ask myself. You may also find them useful:
Invest in you.
Invest in your life.
Invest in your success.
Invest in your future.
So, with all this in mind, with your dreams at the forefront, how will you know when it’s the right time to invest in a coach?
This is one of the biggest wobbles and worries that my potential clients go through. It’s not always down to the concern about the financial investment either. They’re worried that they aren’t personally ready for the experience, worried that they won’t get the results that they are so desperately seeking, worried it’s a waste of time.
Very often, the incredible women that I work with connect deeply with the following things:
🌻 They’re ready to progress with their lives… yet they feel stuck or uncertain about themselves or their future.
🌻 They feel overwhelmed by life, their job or a particular problem… and find it hard to carve out time for themselves.
🌻 They know they want more but honestly… they don’t really know what that looks like or how to achieve it.
If you resonate with any of the above then I’m here to help you.
I want you to succeed, I want you to realise your potential and live your dream life.
