In early May, I spoke to a woman who was tired of
not being brave enough if her life.
This was just months after she and her family (partner & three kids)
moved from Australia to re-locate to a new country.
When she reached out to me for support she felt super disconnected from her heart.
She didn’t feel able to truly express herself to her partner.
She was spending all of her time with her kids, leaving no time for herself.
She felt guilty when she did take the occasional 30 minutes of “self-care” time.
…And she stopped singing once she left her musical group in
Australia months earlier, and misses it deeply.
As she shared this with me, I could see the passion
that has been lost in her eyes.
I had a sense that music was the gateway back into her soul.
I told her that if we were to work together, she would do something
that she never thought she would do.
Courageously, she said yes. She was ready to get uncomfortable so
that she could pursue what was REALLY important to her.
While the three months that followed were anything
but a “walk in the park” for her, she was committed to her dreams.
And her dream? Well, she answered that what I asked her what I ask
every client I work with…
What’s on your “If I Couldn’t Fail” List?
“I would record an album,” she said.
She’s a singer with a powerful voice, yet she wasn’t able to see it for herself.
Even when she was invited last month to sing in a choir with people from 17 different
countries at Royal Albert Hall with The London Festival Orchestra.
The fact that she wasn’t able to see it didn’t matter (because I could.)
I could feel how passionate she was about sharing her music with the world.
So I continued to ask her about her album.
I continued to hold the vision for what she couldn’t quite see for herself.
That was until last week…
On our coaching call, she told me that she’d be flying back to Australia in
to record her album with her music group.
That album is being recording as you read these words.
That “one-day” dream is happening RIGHT F*&%ING NOW.
It’s happening for her because she decided to commit
herself to the process.
Regardless of whether she thought it was even possible didn’t matter.
She kept showing up. And that, [firstname] is what it takes to create
an extraordinary life.
Creating the life of your dreams isn’t something that’s created overnight…
It’s created EVERY night.
I’m super stoked and proud of the woman that you have become.
And I’m honored that I get to support you and those
that are committed to living an extraordinary life.
So, What’s on your “I Couldn’t Fail” List?
