When you want to rebuild your life, where do you begin? I had reached a point where I wanted to turn my life around and start over. I truly found myself waking up to my possibilities and opportunities in the hospital and my eye problem turned out to be a pivotal event in my life.
I had reached rock bottom and for a year had just ambled on maintaining a gym that would never be able to make my dreams come true, or rebuild my financial position which was as bad as it could be. Something had to be done about it, but before my emergency operation I was stuck in a rut, not thinking forward but just dealing with the now. I was basically losing myself in work stopping myself having to think.
Rebuilding your life and prosperity is hard work. It takes a whole lot of effort to accept you have to start over. I had to let go and move on. No matter what, we all have challenges in life and things that cause us to rethink our strategies. We get very caught up in being busy, in appearing busy, making things, doing things, how much of it is done to avoid actually taking a proper look at our life, seeing where we are, deciding are we happy with the way things are or do we believe we can do anything about it. Often we are so lost in looking back we stop working at building the life we want.
Once I freed myself to truly review my life I came to realize that although I loved my gym and my role as an instructor, I knew the days of this being right for me were long gone. As a business this wasn’t what I should now be doing. My potential wasn’t being fulfilled and nor was I truly doing what I now wanted to be. If I’m honest with myself, after all I had been through I was never really able to give my best on the gym floor once I returned to it, sometimes I felt I was just going through the motions. I’d lost my passion for the role as well as the level of fitness required to do an excellent job, and this meant I had to make changes to go on with rebuilding my life. You can’t carry on doing a job once you know it’s wrong for you. And once you realize this, take action, don’t procrastinate and let things continue for too long.
This was what I was able to see once I allowed myself to review my life and look ahead to how I now wanted things to work out. If I hadn’t done this I’d hate to think where I would be now.
My true passion has always been personal development. That’s why I qualified as a life coach, why I’ve taken all the other courses. How many times have I said I wish I could concentrate more time on developing a personal development business? After all it was the one area I had most been fascinated about since 1977 when my mother gave me a Jose Silva book, the Silva Mind Control Method. Things may have knocked me of course over the years, but I am convinced this was the path I’d always been meant to take.
Well my eye problem forced me to make the change. So I now had the chance to not just think about doing it, but actually doing it. Every cloud has a silver lining. This major hiccup in my life, one that would prevent me from being able to do my physically demanding job ensured I followed my true passions building a business around my knowledge and passions for healthy lifestyles and personal development. It got me at last to start thinking of my roads forward, accepting that I wasn’t satisfied with how things were currently, and I could see with clarity what I wanted to do. It was like my wake up call.
It took finding the time to review where I was that finally woke me up. Seeing what was happening and what had happened to this point to then be able to determine what it was I wanted to do, and how doing what this was would take me to the ‘promised land’ or simply the life I wanted to live that would make me happy.
