Have you ever really wanted to do something or achieve something, but you seem to find a thousand reasons why you can't or why now isn't the right time? I'm guessing you probably have, as we can all be guilty of this from time to time.
I remember when I first set up Inner Inspiration, I procrastinated for months over it, not because I didn't passionately want to help people change their lives in ways that they could only dream of, but because I had a great full time job, with a good wage and I had climbed the ladder for 10 years and achieved top industry awards - part of me worried that to stop now and follow my dreams might somehow mean that had all been a waste of time and effort. On top of that, I had a new-born son who depended on me to bring in a healthy living. What would I do if it didn't work out? How would I set up a business whilst working a full time job? All legitimate fears, but were they enough to stop me from doing what ultimately I believed I really wanted to do?
I had my lighbulb moment whilst talking to my 5-year-old nephew. He's really into everything 'space' related, so when I asked him what he wanted to do when he's older he replied with absolute certainty in his voice "I'm going to be an astronaut".
This intrigued me, so I asked him what he was going to do to become an astronaut and his reply really resonated with me, he said "Whatever it takes Uncle Brian."
I thought this was particularly interesting as at this stage in his life he hasn't learnt to justify why things can't happen or what challenges he would have to overcome to achieve his dreams. It got me thinking, what if adults thought like this too, how much more would we achieve? How much easier would it be to just take the leap of faith and go for it?
I'm not saying that we should recklessly dive into everything that we think we'd like to do, however with the right plan in place and with a "whatever it takes" attitude, the world really is your oyster.
An Inner Inspiration coach can work with you to develop a plan, deal with the issues that may be stopping you from pursuing your goal and tackle any obstacles that might arise along the way.
