Ah it's holiday season. Something we've worked hard for and planned all year. A fabulous escape from all our everyday worries and why not?
However as we all know, those worries and stresses tend to still be there when we get back.
The dead end job, the difficult boss, the knackering commute, the nagging sense of wanting to do more with your life, if only you knew what it was?...
I know that feeling because I used to do exactly the same thing in my last corporate job. I’d try to make myself feel better by spending any spare cash on distractions like day trips or holidays, but the temporary high would never last long and I’d soon be back to square one again once I got home.
The problem was that trying to distract myself from my problems didn't work. What I needed to do was change my perspective, and for that I needed the help of a coach. Someone who could help me see things differently and see what was truly possible for me.
And once I had got clear on what I really wanted out of life, and re-built the confidence to go for it, then I didn't need to distract myself so often. Life felt full of possibilities, and whilst the road to meaningful change wasn't always easy or smooth, it was exciting to finally be on that journey!
So don't get me wrong, who doesn't love a holiday? Enjoy the sun, the cocktails and the trashy books (or is that just my idea of the perfect break?!). But just imagine if that was the cherry on the top of an already pretty great life and career back home, instead of a 'ho hum' one?
I'll speak to you soon
p.s my coaching spots are filling up for the autumn (always a busy time of year for me, as summer holidays tend to give people a bit of space to reflect on what's not been working and what they really want to change). Want to be able to sink into that sun lounger knowing that you've got a life changing introductory coaching session booked in with me when you get back? Then get in touch now to learn more and grab your spot.
