So go on, here’s a little brain teaser for your day.

Out of all the human issues I have encountered as a life coach for the past 16 years what do you think are the two most common areas of concern that people bring to their coach?

This is what I have discovered after coaching literally hundreds of clients from lap-dancers to leaders, scientists to song writers, actors to athletes – what do you think is the double act of psychic pain that has us head in hands most of all?

No, it’s not how to get the red dye out of your whites when a rogue sock has snuck in there, nor is it how to win friends and influence people. Think someone else has that covered.

Give up?

OK it’s confidence and clarity. These two things appear to allude you. If you had all the confidence you needed what would you do? Give up the day job and start that genius online business that would make you millions?

Would you put your hand up and be more in meetings, ask that cute new guy/gal in the IT department out or merely start living the life you loved if you could give yourself permission and stop pleasing others in the process?

And clarity? That comes with confidence. How do you know what you want in life if you don’t know who you are, what your passions and strengths are and then have the nerve to take a step towards your life purpose?  How can you trust yourself if you are feeling fearful and doubtful about your abilities and your calling?

Without knowing yourself and doing the inward journeying your GPS will slipstream the frequency of other people’s advice, fall into alignment with “shoulds” and “oughts” or just give you a mouse-in-a-maze muddle of wrong jobs and relationships that you took to go with the flow rather than make a powerful choice to opt into. Ever wondered if you were missing the gut instinct and intuition genes at birth?

It’s all about confidence and knowing yourself.

Why are we here?

Finding your passion and purpose really makes life come into full technicolour vision. Life has meaning and you feel powerful and you have intention in your energy. Things make sense and doors fly open because you knew which doors you needed to appear. Finding out who we are is a life time’s journey and using a coach can fast track you if you want to take that path less travelled.

Take the next step

If you don’t want to commit to a coach just yet try my 21 days to Comfortable Confidence Course where you will get lots of tips and videos to help build your courage muscles and there is a one to one session with me on offer at the end of it.

Take a giant leap

Your life will shrink or grow in proportion to your courage and confidence. Missed opportunities, staying in the (dis)comfort zone and making excuses is not life well lived but will get you a pension plan of regrets.
