Isn’t it time to wake up and get excited about the day ahead?

Isn’t it time to wake up and get excited about the day ahead?

Do you find yourself unhappy, unfulfilled, and worst of all, unrealized?

As the days go by, are you tired, feeling a general malaise or ready to meltdown for some silly reason?

Are you always in motion, checking email, focused on a to do list — just to distract yourself from an inner ache? Is it easier to follow someone else’s script rather than stop and do the work of exploring your true self and real creative passion?

Isn’t it time to do more with the rest of your life?

For decades I let myself off the hook with the same excuses:

  • “It is what it is. I’m too old to make changes.”
  • “My life would be different if my boss / parents / spouse weren’t so demanding / impossible / such jerks!”
  • “What can I do about it? I don’t have any control.”

Several years ago sunk in mid-life, it hit me — there’s no going back.  Decades were gone.

I felt lost and unhappy. On the one hand, nothing truly catastrophic had happened to me. I had a job and vegetables on my table.

On the other, I’d failed at marriage, never had kids, missed out on the C-suite and never made a million dollars.

After years of working for the man (and sometimes the woman) in printing, higher education, investment banking, and the non-profit sector, I had started to hate getting up Monday morning to go to that ‘good‘ job that paid well but was only marginally satisfying.

It was time to get myself together.

I’m guessing you’re reading this because you’re feeling the same.

Don’t get me wrong – I wasn’t naive enough to think life is always nice and easy. I’m wise enough to know that’s not reality.

But what I did want was a lifestyle and work that engaged me, energized me, and made a difference for others.

It was a process.

I started exercising and moving daily. I changed my diet. I read a few books. I took up a meditation practice. I got into life coaching and learned from some coaching masters. I read a few more books.

Not every day was a success. Sometimes I ate a pint of ice cream and watched some mindless reality TV or had a meltdown because a friend had been snarky or thoughtless. I gave myself permission to give up – temporarily.

Then I’d grab a book and re-begin my journey.

I managed to re-engineer my attitude, my body and my focus with one-to-one coaching and lots of self-coaching with books. I realized it’s a journey that only ends on the very last day.

Time and again, I found some of my best coaches were the most economical, wide ranging, and entertaining – books.  They were available in copious amounts with a wide range of knowledge, creative ideas and timeless insights from the best voices.
