The conversation between the coach and Teresa:
Coach : What wasn't working well for you?
All my life I had focused on the family and career. She said "as a baby boomer I had always focused on what others wanted, but never on what I wanted."
She said she simply felt she could never think about her needs.
"I want to stop and take time out for myself now. I realize it's my turn now.
She thought for a while, her face resting on her hand and smiled back at me as if she saw a ray of hope of changing her thought process.These questions seem to set her thinking. Teresa with a glint in her eyes said, “You allowed and encouraged me to look inside myself for the first time in my life, without guilt and with total focus and clarity. The vision of doing something that I love and doing it for my own self."
I discovered that my true passion was to create costumes for early English life periods.”
She included an intangible sense of "comfort," a sense of belonging in that place, of being able to create something that she always desired to. She also envisioned herself becoming a well-regarded member of the local community and creating a thriving, meaningful business.
She found it difficult, at first, not to let herself be overwhelmed by the brilliance of her newly crafted vision. However, with life coaching help, she faithfully followed the life design process, step by step.
Now as Teresa took her first steps into her new goal she became aware of few things, first considerations that she will have to work twice as hard and that she will have to make an effort to market her product.
Some fears like fear of rejection, fear of failures are setting in.
She said, "I need to start believing in myself and may be I need to research where to get cheap raw material from?"
Much of what she found out didn't help her. She made mistakes, fixed them, and carried on.
Undaunted, determined to make her vision a reality, and emboldened by our personal success coaching sessions.
