You know I like to read because I'm always posting stuff that inspires me from my books. Well THIS is a good one!!!
It was actually an exploration of sorts... Read and then do an exercise. And it made me think...
I had to pick 1 reason out of 5 as to WHY I started coaching. My 5 choices were:
BEFORE I did the exercise, I thought my reason was Health... I mean, I lost almost 20 pounds and got in the best shape of my life at age 55!!!
But as I really began to think about WHY and remembered back to when I started, my Health is not why I started coaching.... It is why I signed up to be in a online challenge group but it is NOT why I began coaching.
I also tell people I started coaching because I got a great discount, but again, that is the reason I signed up to coach but it is not why I STARTED to coach. I had no intention of coaching when I signed up.
But a short 2 weeks after I signed up for the discount, a light bulb went off in my head!!! 💡
OMGGGEEEEE!!!! I realized THIS is what I was meant TO DO.... THIS will fill that void I've had all of my life in my work....
COACHING is MY PURPOSE!!!!!
And oh how it has filled that void! It is EVERYTHING to me! I make a difference in this world... Finally!!! It may be a small difference but it is one that fills my cup to the brim and makes me happy every single day...
I don't do it full time but I do it as much as I can, and I will never stop. It is work that I can't ever stop doing b/c I love it so much.
I remember hearing someone say: "Find work you love and you will never work a day in your life." I never understood that until I began coaching. And now I GET IT!!!
I also remember thinking, back when that light bulb began to flicker, THIS is what I'll be doing when I'm 65 - not driving to work & sitting in an office all day! I will NOT be that old, gray haired lady in the corner cubicle!!!
I will be the blonde, crazy ass chick on Facebook doing workout videos and inspiring others to change their lives!!!
It took me over half my life to figure out my purpose but I don't feel bad or regretful about that b/c I know I could have gone my WHOLE LIFE not knowing it if someone hadn't reached out and told me about it.
So now it's my turn... Let ME be that person for you & tell you: There's this great gig and it's called coaching!!! And you don't need any experience... All you need is a desire to learn and a willingness to grow. It is that simple!
If your job feels like work, and you are curious about what I do, I'd love to chat. You know where to find me.... 😍
