Why is everything so hard?

Are you making things harder than they need to be?

Let me tell you about one of my coaching clients. This client knew she was unhappy with her job and she knew it was causing stress in other areas of her life, like her health, sleep, friendships, and family. So she was doing something about it… she was getting a degree so she would be qualified for other positions at other companies.

BUT it was going to take her about 2 more years to finish that degree and she felt like she couldn’t start looking for new jobs until then.

That was going to be 2 more years of being unappreciated at a job she hated and letting it continue to steal from her health, relationships, and time. Ick.

Instead, through coaching, she agreed to make a list of everything she wanted out of her new job (like a window and respect from her supervisors!). Her new vision was so bright and shiny and beautiful, she decided to go ahead and start looking for opportunities. Then, she applied for some. Then, she got one!

Even after the interview at the new job, before she’d gotten it, she felt uplifted and respected and appreciated by the company — something she was never going to get at her old job.

When she started at the new company, her office did have a window that overlooks a bay and a playful otter (I mean really… well done, Universe!)

We literally took a 2-year goal (“get a new job that makes me feel good”) and made it happen in 6 months! That’s 1/4 of the time she expected.

My point is, without outside perspective, you may be putting things in a certain order and saying, “I can’t have this until that thing happens,” when really that may not be true. This is where guidance and accountability comes in.

What if that goal you’re working on only took half the time? Or one quarter of the time? What would that be worth to you?

What could you do with that extra time?

How would you feel about your progress?

Take a deep breath and imagine that goal or dream is done. Accomplished. In the bag. Part of your every day life.
