Years ago, a client told me that life wasn’t meant to be this hard. He went on to express how we all seem to be on a never-ending roller coaster of ups and downs and the older we get, the faster it goes. This was on the heels of a discussion about how he wanted to pursue his passion and was tired of giving all his time to things and people who were not aligned with what he valued. He wasn’t the only one; many I coach find themselves in a similar place. They know they have unique value and gifts and there is a life that they alone were created to live, they just didn’t know how to get started.
Unfortunately, we live in a society where many people are being sold quick solutions that provide little-to-no value. We all know people who have settled for less than their potential. They never intended to give up on their passion, but one thing led to another and they can no longer see a way forward. Some even go so far the other way, they can no longer see a way back. Perhaps you find that you’re tiptoeing this way yourself?
If so, you’re not alone. I too found myself in a similar situation. I felt like I had been living and working through the opinions of others. I became curious about whether there was an alternative path and started asking deeper questions. Questions like: why do we strive and work for what we do? What do we believe and hope for? What and who do we value in life and work? What and who values us? What are our values, and more importantly, what is our value or worth?
On the surface everyone wants to achieve success or get noticed (see my article How To Get What Everyone Wants ), but what about below the surface? Is there something deeper everyone is really after? Something that success or recognition provides them? Is there another way to achieve our desired outcome that is more aligned with our values? This is the type of deep coaching I do with those clients who find themselves wanting to go below the surface and really get Value-Focused.
Deep coaching or Value-Focused coaching is for those individuals looking to:
- Gain more control of their time and focus
- Improve their focus on the people and things they value most
- Clarify who and what they value
- Determine their beliefs and values
- Define their worth
- Define their unique value
- Discover their focus area (calling or opportunity)
- Work through their fears or limiting beliefs
- Gain confidence and realize their capabilities
- Share their unique value or gifts with the world
- Develop a clear value lens and perspective
- Strengthen their faith in their abilities
- Live a Value-Focus Life
If you are looking to go deeper, get value-focused, and tap into your potential, it may be time to take action and take a step toward living the life you alone were created to live today.
Here’s the deal. You only get one life, and you shouldn’t waste it living a life that was designed for someone else. You are valuable. You were created with a unique value and have an opportunity to share it with the world. There is no one else like you and more capable than you at being you and there is no right time to get value-focused. There is just now.
I had an idea of how I wanted to live and knew I had unique gifts to share, but I let work and responsibilities get in the way. Little distractions and saying “yes” to too many unaligned activities, turned into 15 years of not living the life I believe I was created to live. We can all make excuses and say those five little words, “I don’t have enough time.” However, your life and your value are worth too much to wait another day.
Whether you work with me or someone else, I strongly encourage you to step toward the direction of your calling and start living the life you alone were created to live. You’re the only one who can! Learn More About Coaching ↗
