Do you find yourself longing to know, “ who would I be if I only knew how ” because deep inside you feel that something is missing in your life? You’d love to discover the ‘missing’ piece so that you could complete your puzzle and feel better.
You know that filling in the missing piece requires change, but it seems dangerous and like too much work. Dangerous because who would you be, how would you feel and how would you act? So, instead of going for your greatest desire, you find yourself running from place to place to get out of the way of perceived danger? The dangerous old habits of self-doubt, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and feeling unloved! Upon arriving at the “safe” place, you discover the same danger has followed you and is lurking around the corner, ready, willing and able to forcefully keep you stuck. It just seems like the busier you are the easier it is to evade dealing with the stress of change.
Some thoughts to ponder:
- What can I do to open myself to possibilities?
- Am I having difficulty meeting my needs?
- What can I do to see opportunities instead of challenges?
- Am I in the place I want to be in my life at this time?
- Who do I have to be to see the things I desire manifest in my life?
- What do I have to do to become that person?
- How do I silence that negative voice that stops me?
I longing to know who would I be if I only knew how?
I searched high and low for information, taking courses and reading books on how to discover the ‘missing’ piece. Doing those things, gave me the impression that I was moving forward, and then something would happen taking me right back to where I started.
This behavior continued for years, until I hired a coach. Hiring a coach was the best decision I’ve ever made. Working with her, and using the tools and strategies she provided, I discovered the missing piece. Completing that piece of the puzzle unveiled other pieces to put into place.
Making this discovery showed me that my previous fear was unfounded. All it required was for me to be willing to be coached; to learn what I didn’t know and to use it. Asking the question “ who would I be if I only knew how ” is taking me on a journey that continues to unfold.
Imagine the difference your life will be if you spend some time on discovering who you really are and who you are becoming.
