How To Design a Life You Love – Part 2
Recently I talked about how the first step to designing a life you love is actually giving yourself permission to do it. (See 'Part 1' of this blog here.)
The second step is to find an architect. Obviously I'm not meaning a literal architect here, but someone, or something, to give you a structure or framework to assist you through the design process and to equip you ready for going on to build the life that you have designed.
There are various ways to engage your particular 'architect'. It could be in the form of a coach, or an online programme or perhaps a book. Whatever approach you take, it needs to be in a format and have a particular focus that will suit where you are at right now and take you towards the outcome you are seeking.
If you work with a coach as your 'architect' they can give you bespoke support. Together you will work out the key building blocks that are unique to you and which need to be part of the foundation and fabric of your design. They will help you clarify what is important to you and how it all fits together across your whole life holistically.
A coach will help you to identify the blocks that get in your way time and time again which may have so far stopped you from creating a life you love, as well as helping you to overcome external hurdles that may arise once you get started. (For tips on finding the right coach you for - check out my blog here)
Having gone through the experience of needing to rebuild my life after a long term relationship ended, and having coached around the topic, I have created a coaching programme entitled 'Design a Life You Love.' My thinking is that each of us deserves to live the best life possible for us and to be supported to fulfill our potential. This programme is a route to discovering what a life you love looks like and what needs to be a part of a design which will be a perfect fit for you uniquely.
This programme is particularly useful if you have experienced big changes in your life, such as a significant relationship ending or a change in health circumstances, and you feel the need to proactively consider a new design for your life. It is also a great fit if you have realised that your life right now isn't as fulfilling or as happy as you would like it to be, or just not feeling like a good fit for you anymore.
However you choose to proceed I invite you to consider being more proactive to create a life you love living. Whether that is letting go of internal issues that have kept you feeling bad and held back for years, or if it is finding a way to overcome external barriers that seem insurmountable. You have more options and choices available to you at any time than you might think.
"Your life will be no better than the plans you make and the action you take. You are the architect and builder of your own life, fortune, destiny." Alfred A. Montapert
If you are interested in designing a life you love and would welcome some support to do it, then you might like to take part in the online programme. The group programme is currently closed for new participants (however it is open for 1-1 clients). If you would like to be notified when the group programme opens again - sign up to my newsletter here.
