Last week I had a wonderful conversation with a successful, ambitious young woman. We talked about success.
I love having meaningful conversations where I get to know someone better. It is inspiring to see how engaging and connecting with another human being can light both involved in a meaningful conversation up.
That is my definition of success: when I feel connected and see a shift happen, enthusiasm spark, and clarity emerges. I love witnessing the ‘aha’ moments. They are like little miracles to me. I feel most fulfilled when I make little miracles happen. That’s why I choose to be a life coach.
A miracle to me is not rare or extraordinary. They are also not unexplainable. It is simply the act of following your bliss, believing in your dreams and taking actions that make your dreams real. Success is a given when you know what to do to fill yourself up, and do more of that.
There is no ONE definition of success. Everyone defines success in their own unique way....
The one thing all human beings have in common is that we all just want to be happy.
Now this could be a very short blog, because it is so simple: the key to happiness is to be happy.
That doesn’t really help anyone. And if it really was that easy, everyone would be happy already. Simple does not necessarily mean it is easy.
I used to say this all the time to my patients when I was still practicing physiotherapy, along with the words ‘using common sense’ and ‘keeping it simple’. My job was to teach my patients new habits, putting common sense into common practice and keeping it simple and practical, coaching them towards a healthier, happier life.
I know for a fact that most people are not happy. At least, not most of the time and not in all areas of their life.
Maybe you are happy with your job or career, but not so happy in your relationship.
I know many...
How can you possibly feel free in today’s world when there seems to be so much injustice, manipulation and hatred?
How can you feel free from worrying and fears, free from doubt and uncertainty, free from other people’s opinions and judgments?
How can you be free from the ongoing power struggle between you and others in your life, your employer, your co-workers, your family, or your significant other?
How can you not be a prisoner of your self imposed limitations: the belief you are inadequate, incapable, and you don’t deserve?
And how can you not be consumed by preparing for life’s adversities that are undoubtedly coming your way, leaving you worried and fearful about tomorrow?
Well, it is all a matter of perspective.
It all depends on how you perceive your life.
Did you ever hear a song and all of a sudden emotions started welling up inside you? That just happened to me. I just heard this song, not for the first time, but somehow the words struck me this time. I have been contemplating these thoughts for a while now, and I am figuring out what choices to make that are truly in alignment with my inner self. Doubts about my abilities and the choices I made are making me feel small and scared. I think that is why this song, 'I am Light', triggered strong emotions in me this time and I had the urge to share this with you.
Please take the time to read this and contemplate with me. Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section below this post or on my Facebook page. I'd like to hear your experiences and thoughts. I am not trying to prove a point, I just want to provoke a different way of thinking.
