A few weeks ago, I received a mail from a potential client and she tried to explain what she was looking for. In short, her message was:
“Well my experience is not as extreme as yours but I am still overwhelmed and I know that I need to change if I want to avoid burning out. I could use some help to get myself back on track.”
How many out there have that impression that while things are not dramatic (and it is a good thing!), it could be so much better than it is at the moment. This person’s feelings are not uncommon. We are so busy in our lives that we can not even find the time to focus on oneself even for a hour a week. We know that things are not going the way we want, but well, you know how it is, we don’t have time to stop and think.
Let’s stop for a minute, just a minute. What is the cost to you, if you don’t take that time and figure it out? What projects are you not fully engage in, because of these emotions? What is happening in your life that you would have tackled before but are unable to address now? Which relationships suffer because of this lack of engagement?
I know what the costs was to me. What is the real cost to you of that feeling that is not so good but not too bad either?
Yes…. The cost is huge. Professionally, personally, physically… The list goes on and on and on.
So I would say this, if you think that I had an extreme case, You’re right! I totally agree, but if I have learned one thing, and I have learned many is that you need to take care of yourself, you need to put yourself at the top of YOUR to-do list, You need to be a little selfish and take care of yourself. Take time to ask yourself the real questions. The whys and the hows? And if it gets a little too scary or difficult or you have no idea how to go about this, because quite frankly you have never done this before. Well that’s ok. We have all the right questions and the right tool to get you there.
If this does not apply to you, you probably know somebody who would benefit from a free discovery session, to define a compelling future and a road map to achieve that future. Make it a gift from you! Give them the gift of clarity. If that’s the case, then, please let them know about Joelle’s Practice and I will be very happy to take the time to discuss with them about their goals and the possible path they can use to achieve them.
