In a recent review with my coach, I realized that today I experience a whopping 10/10 satisfaction level in the career area! Woo hoo! How awesome is that? I feel energized, focused, committed to growth and mastery. There’s a lot of happy dancing going on around here!
Quite a bit has changed since I started working with my coach a year and a half ago. At that time I had burned out at a job that was never a great fit for me, had resigned a few months prior, and was just starting to regroup and explore the idea of becoming a coach myself. My satisfaction level in the career area was hovering around a 2 out of a possible 10, with 10 being the most satisfied.
How does 2/10 feel? Pretty crappy. I felt lost, uncertain, unskilled, not good enough, low confidence, worried, concerned, feelings of failure, letting my partner down financially and holding him back, as he stayed in a day job he might otherwise might have left to pursue his dreams.
Today it feels quite a bit different! Today I’m committed to my path, I’ve completed 104 hours of core training, I have some confidence and competence, and I’m enrolled to begin a 6 month coaching certification program in November. I have a sense of purpose and fulfilment in my life. Sweet.
Am I where I ultimately want to be in my career? No.
Am I happy with my progress so far, where I am right now and where I am heading? Absolutely! I’ve learned that satisfaction happens in the present moment- it isn’t dependent on reaching some end goal in the future.
My coach holds My Big Agenda for me. She champions me into becoming my best self. She calls out my saboteurs. She helps me see the talented, unique, gifted person I am, so I can bring more of that me to the world. Our coaching relationship has supported me to create 10/10 satisfaction in the career area of my life. Wow! How great is that?
If you’ve ever thought of working with a coach, now is a great time. I’m still looking for a few more people to coach with me during my certification program. Contact me me today for more info and start doing your happy dance!
Be Love, Be Empowered. Be Alive.
