What would it be like to wake up each morning feeling great and "on purpose?"
How would it feel to have clarity, purpose and focus, knowing exactly what you want to do?
What would it be like to have trust in your own power and not worry, feel anxious or feel stuck in a rut that you can't see your way out?
How would it feel to have energy and balance in your daily life?
What would it be like to feel in control of your life and be successful?
What would it be like to go to work each day to a job you really love?
Do these statements make you want to say -- "Sounds wonderful in an ideal world but..?"
A few years ago I wouldn't have believed it.
I would have said the same thing.
I was too busy trying to survive in my own chaotic and reactive life. I had no time to imagine how things could be different. I was too busy focusing on the do-do of getting things done. I know what it's like to keep falling short. I know what it's like to wonder if the life you dream of is just a dream. I was struggling with so many things and could not understand why my success didn't make me happy.
When I first starting working as a Learning and Development Consultant, I travelled the world to train, coach and consult, developing people and delivering success in multi-national companies. I really loved my job wanted to be successful. At the time, my definition of success was:
Success = Effort
My philosophy was this: The harder and longer hours I worked, the more successful I would be.
"Most cultures tend to reward personal sacrifice instead of personal productivity."
This was my unconscious belief, and unwittingly it also became my work ethic for at least three years! I regularly threw myself on the altar of self/personal sacrifice for work. I worked extremely long hours in the belief that my superiors would recognize my sacrifice. They would value my effort and promote me. This philosophy left little time for me, for my life, my relationships and my health. These all became very low on my priority list. I worked an insane schedule and this fuelled my need to be successful. I was locked into this cycle. I was stuck and couldn't see a way out.
This was a defining moment in my life...
I was very successful until one day... I found myself sobbing my eyes out over my expenses. I just couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't continue to work at this insane reactive pace. At that moment - I remember it clearly - I crashed and burned. I was signed off sick with "exhaustion" for a month.
I am so grateful for this happening because I realized I had been running around trying to GET promoted, but I had no idea why. It was something that I thought successful people supposed to want and I wanted to be successful!
Through this haze I also realised that I was in a very unhappy relationship and had been avoiding dealing with this for over a year. I focused on working longer hours and kept myself busy instead.
So what did I learn from all of this?
Sometimes when we try to get something, we don't consider why we want it, and therefore we only work on external factors to make it happen. I call this the Outside-In approach.
I reached outwards to try to get recognized and promoted. I didn't stop to look at my current blocks to success, such as my belief patterns, fears, and personal values, or how increased effort was impacting upon my personal life or health. I kept making the same mistakes, following the same patterns and getting stuck in the same rut over and over again.
I was so unhappy with my situation, but didn't know how to change it - after all, I was successful! But at what cost was my success?
From the outside, this looks like the right approach to take to get results: Put extra effort in, work longer hours, etc., and maybe I would get rewarded for my personal sacrifice. After all I'm doing something and taking action.
External action alone rarely achieves powerful results because we are not working at a deeper level to create sustainable change. My existing mindset was set at a default of work harder and this did not address any of the blockages. I did not set my mind for success, I programmed it for exhaustion! I was out of alignment with what I really wanted.
It really is an inside job!
Sustainable change can only be made from the Inside-Out. Therefore, anything that you want to change is up to you, because it's about your Inside. You get to choose what you want to change and when you want to change it. No amount of persuasion or emotional appeal from anyone else will make you change. The change starts from the Inside-Out.
The source of my exhaustion was me.
My entire game changed.
I made a conscious decision.
I realised that had to begin the change from the Inside-Out! It's true that creating sustainable change is more about the things you remove from your life - not what you add to it.
At that moment, I re-defined my definition of success on my own terms. It wasn't about the external praise, long hours and recognition. Success for me was about being happy. I was no longer going to settle and survive. I decided to turn my life around and live it for me.
So I set about making it happen in a big way.
And that's what I did.
From that moment on, I took conscious action. I invested in myself. I hired a life coach and read every self-help book that was recommended to me! I made my life about my own definition of success.
Sometimes it was hard. Giving up was always the easier option.
I wanted to be successful and change completely by the following Monday! When you want to change your life six months can seem like forever! My coach introduced me to my two dear friends -- discipline and persistence! I also had to take responsibility for my life instead of blaming others for my lack of action or results.
Sometimes I felt like I was drowning in my own negative thinking and couldn't see a way through my fear and doubt. My coach was there to encourage me and guide me through. I attended workshops, retreats and online programmes which helped me to create new positive habits and patterns that really made a difference to my daily life. I created daily success habits and momentum. Everything changed for me and I created my own brilliant life.
My colleagues and friends started to notice a positive difference in me. They sensed I was happier and more relaxed. They kept asking me: "What is different about you?" I started to share what I was learning with delegates in the classroom and when I was coaching. My clients really loved what I was sharing and asked me to share more. I'd often finish a workshop and find a queue of people at my desk waiting to talk to me! When you make big changes on the inside, success and happiness can't help but find you on the outside.
I wanted to find a way of how I could share my learning in a clear step by step approach. While what I learned wasn't linear, I developed a system to layer the learning in a way that people could really engage and get further faster. I created a programme using all the key elements that focuses on working deeply from the inside-out.
I call it the BrilliantLife - Self-Study Mastery Programme.
Is it really possible to create a BrilliantLife?
Most people don't have a plan. They, like me, live an unconscious life waiting to be rescued or hoping to win the Lottery!
Seriously! This isn't a plan. When things go out of balance avoiding the situation is like trying to hold one of those swimming noodles under water... eventually it will break free and rush to the surface. The imbalance will eventually fly to the surface. For me this was the day I crashed and burned while sobbing my eyes out over my expenses.
Life is all about transition and transformation. We are always in motion. Learning how to manage transition whether it is big or small is essential for a successful and happy life.
You might be wondering how hard is this going to be for you...
I'll be totally honest with you. Just reading the programme will not transform your life. You can't just listen to the content and hope that everything will change.
The success stories from people who have taken this programme have all have several things in common:
Do you want to get to experience unbelievable changes in your life?
I've really lived this stuff and I know what I'm talking about from practical experience. That's why so many people continue to want to work with me. This programme is NOT one of those quick fix - cure all packages from someone who has just decided to be yet another life coach. I understand the importance of mindset first, skillset second. I know the common challenges, and all the temptations to quit. I'm also prepared to face them with you! Together we will blast through any roadblocks. After all, these are the things that keep us from succeeding.
