Empowering Women to Live Extraordinary Lives

“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn

When I started working with my life coach, I was confronted with a hard reality: if I wanted my life to change, I would have to do all the work myself!  I remember in our very first session she said: "YOU have to do the hard work.....and only YOU have the answers"!  What? She wasn't going to tell me how to make my life exactly like I wanted? Wow - what a wake up call that was! It was very powerful to realize that I was the only one capable of changing my life; no one could do it for me.  As hard as that was, I quickly came to terms with it because I wanted my life to change really, really badly!
 
And that is exactly what I did - through coaching  I made changes in my life: I stood in new perspectives, became aware of my choices, and took new actions.  This ultimately resulted in me leaving my corporate job, and starting a new career as a Life Coach.  Now, one and a half years later, you would think that creating change would get easier, but nope!! I still have to make a conscious effort to choose the things I want in my life, and change is not always easy.
I recently decided that I need more fun and new adventures in my life. Therefore, I am holding myself accountable to do one thing each month that is new and fun (check out last week's blog to see my monthly commitments). Well, I did it! I went Go-Kart racing with my husband on January 27th.   Even though I was excited, I was also very nervous.  Check out my pre and post race videos!!
 
It felt great to do something I have never done before.  I gained confidence out on the race track, as well as in my life.  If I can do this, then I know I can do anything else I've always wanted to do! Woo-hoo.... Can't wait for the next "fun and new"!

Sky diving will probably be in the summertime.  Wanna come??  Yes, let's take over the world with new and fun :)  I can't wait for the trapeze event!

This is great Suzanne, I love the videos.  I think it's not obvious to most of us that we need to do the work in order to change and I am not sure most people have someone in their life to tell them that.  Talk about an aha moment with your coach.  One of the reasons I want to go skydiving is that I feel like if I can jump out of a plane I can tackle anything in life!
