Lost your life purpose?  No sense of direction?  Feel like something needs to change?  

We all get to that point in life where we are just living.  Living to exist.  Waking up, going to work, coming back, going to sleep.  

But what will trigger in you to say “I need to change my ways” ?  Only you can spark that change and make the decision to want change.  

Here’s some great tips to help you get back on track:  

  1. Find something to do – a hobby.  Do something different.  Hobbies spark creativity
  2. Go for a walk – stop using the car too much.  Opt to work instead and make a regular schedule to walk or even exercise at the gym
  3. Join a yoga class, meditate.  Self discover is something that awakens the spirit which then allows you to work with your needs and what you’re passionate about in life
  4. Accept yourself for who you are.  Acceptance of the self is key to allow you to move forward
  5. See the bigger picture – don’t focus on the past – move forward and find your methods to steer to the direction required – live in the PRESENT moment
  6. Remain focused on your life goals – write them down – and be accountable for them i.e. hire a life coach and discuss ways to reach your goals
  7. Vision your Success – when you write your goals, vision what they look like once accomplished

To summarize, your thought process is key to discover what you want out of life and where you are looking to head.  Getting lost in life doesn’t necessarily mean you’re stuck – it means you’re looking for change – now awaken that change by adding value to your life.  Coaching allows you to work on your goals and empower yourself.
