If you believe you are in charge of the future design of your life then you stand a much better chance of it turning out the way you want it to. It’s one of the first questions we ask our coaching clients. If you are in the driving seat of your life then you can start to re-design.
“Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.” – Charles Eames
I always like to visulise our life as a blue print, laying it out on the table infront of you. Starting to see what has already happened which we cant change and noticing the vast space of the future which is yet to come. If you were about to write a book you would be engaged in sorting out its chapters. The home takes shape from the imagination and plans of the architect. There are many similarities in this metaphor.
When designing a home there are certain fixed and other variables to consider. What might some of the fixed things be for you as you look at your life design ahead? Your plans can be easily modified remember. I often have to remind myself that when we consider a decision it is taken from that moment with the information we have at that time and our reality in that moment. Moments change and so do circumstances.
“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
When you start to consider a life redesign you can think about your career, relationships, friendships who might help and support you in taking your new life design forwards? The architect designs the house, then the contractor steps in and hires a team of plasterers, electricians etc. As you design your life, your team may include coaches, life mentors, friends, people you aspire to. Some of these people may also help you with essential repairs needed to your plan.
Life Coaching is a very positive way to help you with your life re-design. When I offer life coaching you the client is very much in control of the goals that you set and the changes you want to make. You can use the session to explore and identify personal goals, focus on the future and devise strategies to put in place in order to achieve the goals that have been set. I am able to provide the support which, helps you to make decisions and also to grow and develop.
As you start working your plan, review it on a regular basis, adjust for changes, and always reward yourself for your progress, we call this milestones in coaching. With these tools in your toolbox, you’re on your way to designing your own life. You can hear some of my testimonials via video or written feedback. Give me a call
