What if you started this as a life coach ten years earlier? This is a great reflection question we should all ask ourselves about what we do now or considering. The problem here lies in that what we know now you did not know back then. You could say, “What if,” all day but you will not know until you take action. I did not know anything ten years ago, and I realize I know even less today about the world. I do know a lot more about who I am and what I am supposed to be doing. The same applies to you as well. Deep down we all know but our reservations prevent us from taking action.
My Life Ten Years Earlier
Ten years ago I was in the fourth year of a broken marriage with a 3-year-old on my heels. I was a dominant, active, task-oriented guy who was not too sensitive. I loved tackling a difficult task, planning, and organizing. I was ready to take on new responsibilities and hungry to fulfill my dreams. I was tight, a little too critical and fault finding at times. It was my way or the highway. I was too confident, too hard on myself and moved forward without investigating or gathering all the information.
What would happen over the next three years no one would have guessed. A total transformation. I changed my entire worldview after finding myself in a very low and dark place. Words cannot describe some of the trauma, loss, and complete failure that had infected my life. I felt like a plane on fire heading for a collision with the ground, and everyone was pointing at me in the sky.
A New Saga Emerges
What emerged was a total transformation. I changed my entire worldview after finding myself in a very miserable place. I began developing productive, healthy relationships with people who valued and supported me. I realized people were the greatest asset. I was giving without expecting anything in return. I found my spark and began exercising regularly. I re-discovered my love of reading and learning. I started to explore the world with fresh eyes like a kid again.
Using Strengths For Good
I remain strong-willed and energetic but instead of strong arming, I am creating an environment for people to find their purpose and power. Instead of picking a job I am now focused on working in an industry where challenging the status quo is the goal – to create change . Every day is a good struggle not only for me but for the people I work with. I help people worry less about what others think, take more risk and learn every day.
