At some point in our lives we will have to deal with adversity and trauma.
Life rolls along and then suddenly….wham, something happens, and you end with feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed.
The kind of things I’m talking about include:
- The death of a loved one
- Losing your job
- Drinking too much
- Anxiety about your future
Any one of these experiences in life can cause you to freeze and feel unable to find a way forward.
You often ask yourself “How can I move forward, should I do this or that?”
Perhaps an alternative question to ask yourself is “Why is important that you move forward?”
I feel your pain acutely at the moment because I’ve just lost my brother last week to Sepsis caused by the Chemo he was having for Oesophageal cancer.
At the same time my brother’s wife lost her job compounding this very difficult situation for the family.
There are days when I simply don’t know what to do next.
How being a life coach helps me
I feel very fortunate to be a Jack Canfield Trainer because the guiding principles of our work enable us to help people to get from where they are now to where they want to be.
The Success Principles have helped me to work through what is a very difficult time for my family.
Whilst things were and still are very raw I took some time out to interview a fellow Jack Canfield Trainer called Leslie Peters for my podcast.
Leslie’s life’s purpose is to teach you how to turn adversity and trauma to advantage and unconditional love.
She has experienced some awful experiences and traumas in her life and kindly agreed to share them with me in the podcast with the aim of helping other people to move forward.
So, you are invited to listen to this podcast here along with the other episodes which you’ll find helpful.
After listening to the podcast imagine how your life could be in the future.
At the same time have a think about the future if you do nothing and stay stuck – is that the best place for you – I think you know the answer to that don’t you?
