Life is very good at throwing us curve balls when we least expect it. I’ve been hit in the face by several of them: depression, bereavement, divorce, weight issues, career issues – pretty much the same as many of you. We can’t always dodge what life throws at us but it is how we choose to react in the face of those issues that matters. In fact, even the path our lives take is entirely a matter of choice. We can choose to become more confident, successful, loved.
In 2013, I decided I needed a new approach to running my life. I was in a career rut and recovering from a virus that had knocked me flat for several weeks so that I only had the energy to lay in bed and reflect on my life. Some of it wasn’t comfortable. I’d read self-help books, tried counselling and hypnotherapy. All were great but they didn’t resonate with me. So I tried visiting a life coach. I’ve never looked back.
In fact, I have become so evangelical about Coaching that I am now one myself.
