I Changed My Life: Living on the Sidelines of Life to The Star Player
I took a chance on myself and it has paid off in the most phenomenal way – Client
I recently sat down with a couple of my clients who have completed the Phase I of the new TRU™ Coaching program. Not only was I looking for their honest feedback but I wanted to share it with you too. I will not be sharing their real identities out of respect of their journey’s they are still on.
S is a married mother of three girls and is a stay-at-home mom in her late 30’s. Life has been seemingly one event after the other since childhood. Although S is an eternal optimist, she found she had checked out of her own life and wasn’t sure how to get it back. At the beginning of this process, she jumped in ready to do whatever it took to succeed. Each month she had dramatic progress to show for it. Now she sees the impact on her teen daughters and improving relationships throughout her entire family.
Jen: Tell me how you viewed your life before deciding to use a Life Coach?
S: Uncertain. Stagnant. Stressful. Insecure. Sitting on the sidelines. Worrisome. That would about sum it up.
Jen: With feeling so uncertain and insecure, how did you view your future then?
S: Pretty much the exact same way – uncertain, worried, scared.
Jen: I know from our conversations that you carried a high level of stress. Can you share with others what your stress levels were before you started this program and then after the first 90 days?
S: Honestly, I was living day to day with a stress level of 8-10. It was completely paralyzing. But, after learning about myself and managing my life differently, my stress level decreased, amazingly so, to about a 1, sometimes a 2. And is no longer paralyzing!
Jen: That must make you feel incredible and empowered now. How has it changed your confidence in yourself?
S: At the beginning of this I would say my confidence was a low 2 or 3. I have had many issues to bring me to an insecure place. But now, I can confidently say after completely Phase l, it is around an 8 or 9. One more issue to overcome for it to be a solid 10.
Jen: Before you started this journey of self-discovery, do you feel like you knew who you were or what you wanted out of your life?
S: No. I was beginning to feel as though I had wasted so many years being unsure of who I was or where I was supposed to be going and what I was supposed to be doing with my life. I often felt very confused and unsettled.
Jen: How else has that changed for you now?
S: I definitely know who I am and have the gate open to where I am headed. There are still some questions but because I now know who I am and the bigger picture of my purpose, I will be able to get the answers to a more defined future as time goes on. It is essential that I first found out who I was and what I was passionate about and now I can continue to walk in faith with grace.
Jen: There are a lot of skeptics out there who really wonder about the value of having a life coach. Has this investment been worth it for you?
S: Oh absolutely! I cannot begin to describe my own personal transformation in the past 90 days and some might not even believe me when I share my story but without this program, I feel that I would not have been given the tools by my wonderful and supportive life coach to change my life. I learned the value in ME through HER. It has been the most amazing gift and I would recommend it to anyone who desperately needed to change their lives. You connect to your authentic self on such a deep level and if you are willing to do the work, dig deep and commit to making your life exactly what you want it to be, then there is no reason not to invest in yourself. This is one investment that you will never regret. It truly will change your life if you are open to it.
Jen: I am so grateful for our time together. I know we aren’t sharing your entire story yet at this point – but, is there anything else you would like to share with people about your experience?
S: In the beginning, I felt a little skeptical of this program, mainly because of my own insecurities. I had no idea how THIS could change my life. I had many questions and wondered just how this would be different than all the other things I have tried in my past to make my life better and failed. How would I know that I would not fail again after investing in it so much? But that is where trust comes into play. I trusted my life coach so much to give me the tools and the support I needed to continue to make my life the life I knew I wanted instead of sitting on the sidelines watching it pass me by every day. Without her help, I really am not sure I could have transformed so quickly. I knew I was ready to change and this program, my coach, is exactly what I needed to push me over the edge and whispering “FLY”…… so I did just that. I am now in a completely new stage of my life with a newfound confidence that I never would have dreamed of and am continually making choices and decisions to better my life. I am in control now and I do not give that power over to anyone else. My happiness is created by me. No one is going to steal it from me ever again. Let’s be realistic for a moment. I am not completely “healed” or completely “changed” and I still have a few issues to work through but the AMAZING thing about this program and life coach is I am no longer paralyzed by some challenges and issues that have weighted me down in my past. I no longer give the power to those pains and hurts. I am in a much greater place to where I am able to work through my issues as they arise and my reaction time is so much faster than before. I have realized that this journey was mine and I was responsible for the quality of it. I took a chance on myself and it has paid off in the most phenomenal way because I had the courage to invest in me and my life. Through this program, I have now given myself grace…every day. And I will be forever grateful to Jen and this program she has created in her quest to change lives. It works.[divider top=”0″]
