Are you wondering why you just can’t move forward in life or why you are living in a way that is completely different than who you really are? Some of my clients have struggled making the next decision or being successful in an environment that they were clearly qualified to be in. This is one of the biggest reasons: LIES. That nasty self-talk that can torment us and lead us down a path we weren’t meant to be on. Thoughts such as, “I’m not good enough, smart enough, not worthy, will never measure up, a loser, I don’t deserve to be here,” well you get what I mean. Somewhere in your life, something happened or didn’t happen, or someone said something that caused a lie to planted. Once it is planted and you spent time pondering it, it grows roots and gets tangled up in a web of negative thoughts in your brain. It then can take on a life of its own. I’ve worked with some very capable clients that no longer thought they were capable because of these lies. That incredibly strong thought manifests itself in poor performance and with it comes poor self-esteem.
My goal as a life coach is to help people uncover the lie that is holding them back and give them the tools to overcome it and replace it with the truth. The challenge is that we can often think we have gotten rid of the lie and then a situation will trigger the past lie again. Using the knowledge I have as a certified life coach, I help my clients develop strategies that will enable them to “do battle” with that lie and render it powerless. There is an abundant life for us to live, so let’s walk unencumbered!
