If you’ve popped over to my About Me section already, you’ll know how I’ve written about spending numerous years moving from job to job. I was desperately unhappy and lacking the ability to see where my true purpose lay. Soooo much has changed since then! It feels like it’s almost impossible to put it all down on paper. So, this could be a long one, bear with me!
Having discovered my passion for coaching, I feel like what I’m doing now is my true calling. So much so that naturally, I’ve always just been doing this, right? if I try reeeeally hard I can make myself cast my mind back to one of many many many administrator office jobs but if I let it, a tiny piece of my soul would crumble. Thankfully, I’m in such a blissful bubble of happiness that I realise that that isn’t my life anymore! It hasn’t magically landed in my lap as I’ve worked bloody hard to get to this point and it’s not been without the doubts, the worries and the fears that it wouldn’t work.
How I've Grown
So back to having discovered my passion for a personal development coach. I have grown so much in the years, having trained on numerous courses, working many hours alongside a full time corporate job, and working with many many people in my coaching role, it’s really truly shaped me to be the person I am sat here writing this to you. I’ve moved on from the Life Coach and am now able to recognise the value that I offer people. How I can really help others and teach them that the life they dream of is possible and becoming the person they want to be that inspires others is possible.
What I've Changed to Live My Dream
When I embarked on my very first confidence course, I had qualified as a coach (yippee!), turned 30 (boooo), been on many holidays (that’s the wanderlust in me), ended a 4 year relationship, made the decision to go part time at work, continued to develop my business Abi Can Coach, Trained as a Kids’ Yoga Teacher Abi Can Yoga, Left my corporate role completely, Trained as a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher and taken over a business… actually having a pause here in case there is anything I’ve missed!
And that brings me right to the present day. Amongst all the turbulence and complete turn around in all the foundations of my life, I’m attempting to stop amongst that chaos to write down some of what’s going on! Life can be so hectic sometimes, we multi task and wonder why we can’t remember people’s names or the place we saw something or the thing we meant to ask someone. Well that’s just me but still it’s worrying!
What Keeps Me Going?
One thing that kept me going throughout all of the above, despite the hecticness, the huge changes in my comfort zones, the safety of an amazing relationship that just wasn’t meant to be, the decision to invest in more qualifications and training all amongst people (with the right intentions, mainly), telling me how brave I was whilst looking at me like I was totally Crazyyyyyy, was my unfaltering, unquestionable – DETERMINATION!
You Can Do It Too!
So, if you are facing some challenges right now or there’s that niggle in the back of your mind to do something more than you are at the moment, there are a lot of things that could go wrong but there are also a hell of a lot of things that could go right. One thing is for sure, whatever happens, your determination and persistence will see you through. You have the opportunity to grow as a person, to develop into a version of yourself, living a life you only thought happened to others. You’ve just got to get into the driver’s seat. And. Make. It. Happen!
