"By becoming self-aware, you gain ownership of reality; in becoming real, you become the master of the inner and outer life"

"What's in your cup"?

Ever encountered one of those moments whilst holding a cup of tea and someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your tea everywhere?  

Well, a major life change, such as getting married, having children, divorce, losing your job, moving to another country, has a habit of shaking things up within you, emotions surface and spill out. Just like the tea in the cup! It can leave you feeling like you have lost your sense of direction. Many people will likely experience a life-changing event at some point during their life and when it happens, it impacts both our private & professional lives. What’s important, is how you choose to deal with it.

Life is offering you a gift to refill with a new fresher tea.

Self-awareness is knowing your inner mind, how it behaves, how you respond to it and having self-compassion. When you can do this for yourself, you will lead yourself and others more effectively. Self-reflection & self-regulation are important skills to gaining self-awareness. As we grow older we change, as do our needs and what matters to us. Self-reflection is giving yourself feedback and self-regulation is understanding your emotional response to the environment around you.

Self-awareness is the source of self-esteem and building confidence. Understanding your strengths and your weaknesses is critical on the journey to self-improvement. Thoughts that you give attention to, will either move you forward or hold you back in life.

There are many areas to your life such as; family, career, health, financial, fun & recreation & personal growth. Take a moment and ask yourself the following questions? Be curious to see what you answer.

How do you think, how do you feel, how do show up in each area of your life?

Are the events, circumstances, experiences you have in any one of those areas, mirroring how you think, feel and act?

Answering these questions may be a little more difficult than you first thought. If we are honest with ourselves, we take little time to reflect, we tend more to move through life reacting to whatever comes our way and if we are feeling some form of dis-ease we push it away, with the idea it might go away or we will deal with it later and later never comes. If answering was difficult, maybe it's because you feel stuck, or moving in a direction that doesn’t feel right, or maybe you feel an empty space within. Whatever the obstacle, it's possible to overcome them and soar!

With coaching, you will change the way you think and feel about the obstacle and get the results you desire.

Coaching is the best investment you can make; get the best out of yourself, your life.

Change your thoughts and love the new YOU in life!

Emotional baggage can affect all areas of your life   -   Business, Career, Relationships, & Health

When we have good emotional health we are aware of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We have healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. We feel good about ourselves and can maintain healthy relationships. However, many things that happen in our life can disrupt our emotional health.

Life will bring its challenges, knocking us down, setting us off track and if undealt with, life will start to feel heavy. We feel possibly lost or not good enough, or maybe we feel like we have failed in some way. However it affects us, it leaves us on what seems like a continuous emotional rollercoaster, or with an overactive inner critic, a lack of confidence and just for good measure possibly some form of self-sabotaging behavior. All of them thriving on our unresolved emotions.

Unresolved emotional issues have a tendency to hang around until you decide to embrace them. Even good or wanted changes can be as stressful as unwanted changes. These may include events such as:

  • A business initiative failure
  • Getting divorced/ending a relationship.
  • Being laid off from your job.
  • Emigrating to another country.
  • Dealing with the death of a loved one.
  • Mild depression/emotional exhaustion

These events can lead to strong feelings of sadness, stress, or anxiety. Which in turn can leave us feeling either unsupported, overwhelmed, worthless, helpless, guilty, anxious, stuck in a rut of regret, imaging how life could have been if...

The path to recovery is deciding YOU deserve to be more than you are allowing yourself to be.

1. Compassion for yourself, give yourself permission to feel your repressed emotions and to release them.

2. Have forgiveness, forgive yourself.

3. Acceptance of the situation

4. Take ownership of your behavior

5. Make new steps to move forward

During each stage are valuable lessons to learn and grow from. The healing process takes time and you need to give yourself time. Accepting what’s happened is in the past and viewing the present situation as just a temporary station, can help you to approach your obstacle as an opportunity to re-evaluate and change your life for the better in so many ways.

Put yourself back in the driving seat of your life.

Choose the direction you now need to take to start moving forward.
