Once I had a little distance between my divorce and my new life, I realized that I am worth everything! But that wasn’t always the case.
Years before, while in a toxic relationship, there’s no way I could have accomplished what I have since being on my own. I would have self-sabotaged everything to be sure I wouldn’t succeed.
That was much safer than actually succeeding. I had a lovely co-dependent thing going, and didn’t want to mess it up. I started many ventures along the way during that relationship, none of which amounted to anything. I perpetuated the cycle of need and dependence. I got a “great idea” and put some effort into it, then got bored or lost interest in it, got distracted by a new idea, or it became too complicated, so I shut it down, and remained financially dependent on my spouse.
For one thing, I never truly believed in myself. I never believed I could succeed at anything and sustain it over time. For decades, I filled a deep well of self-doubt, which pulled me in whenever I sought to make a go of something new.
This was a totally sucky way to live! And, once I was divorced and forced to look at my life and decide what was deeply important to me, I started moving confidently toward my goal.
One day I woke up feeling strong and empowered, and had a newfound belief in myself and my goals to a) get certified as a coach, and, b) get coached by some awesome women! I looked around and realized there were thousands of other women doing the exact work I most wanted to do.
They had taken the chance on themselves to become coaches, and that’s exactly what I did too! Necessity may have nudged me to pursue becoming a coach, but love for what I do has kept me here and been my source of strength in pursuing my dreams.
Step by step, I’m creating my life, by design. I’m choosing the when, what, and how I build my financial security. When is the last time you took courageous steps toward a goal because you deeply believed in yourself? What’s keeping you from going after your dream?
Working with a life coach can help propel your life forward. Here are some areas to focus on to create a life you love living:
- Identify self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back, so that you can let them go, and move on.
- Discover your inner strength so that you can confidently go after your goals.
- Explore additional ways you can access your core beliefs and leverage them for your own success, so that you can create the financial security you want.
Remember, you’re worth everything!
