Do you feel like life is passing you by, that you are out of balance and have lost control? Is self-sabotage your constant companion, are you living with stories about ‘why you can’t’, and blaming others for your ‘bad luck’? Or maybe you have a tendency to take on more and more, always putting others first and then feel guilty and frustrated about not getting everything done and your lack of results?
If you shouted a very loud “YES” to any of these questions, you are not alone! You could be suffering from a predicament that was once prevalent in the late 40’s to early 50 year olds and is now affecting more and more younger women in the so called ‘prime’ of their life. A condition that is depleting your energy, vitality and overall wellness - an early mid-life crisis!
It is the syndrome of our generation and it is no surprise really given the pace at which we must deal with life’s daily challenges in today’s world. As busy women we are often running in continuous circles to get everything done while striving for balance in our lives, always giving to our children, our partners, our families, our friends, our careers, our environment, and our finances. Often, we then fall short and run out of steam before we give to ourselves, our health, our personal de-velopment, and our ‘ME’ time.
When one part is out of balance, it inevitably starts to impact the rest of your life. You begin to buckle under the pressure of feeling overweight, overworked, overtired, overwhelmed and lacking motivation. As time moves on, you start to feel like you are in a rut, unclear about what to do so you do nothing because the risk in taking action is too great. At this point you stop playing ‘the game of life’ because it’s not fun anymore and you begin to let your fears hold you back, right?
Absolutely! You see, many of us live out our lives saying we will take a step forward when we’re not so scared and have more confidence, more choices, more energy, more time or more money. Then we find we never take the step because the fear never fades, our confidence doesn’t goes up… it even goes down, the choices do not present themselves, our energy depletes even further, time slips away and the money never comes.
These incessant fears, excuses, dramas keep us from skipping, jumping in puddles, stubbing our toes… LIVING!!!
The net result being that you no longer feel listened to, acknowledged and valued in your relationships, your molehills begin to feel like mountains and you start waiting for the ‘Guru’ who has all the answers, the magic weight loss bullet or the secret pathway to health and happiness to suddenly light up. Every time we put ‘avoiding fear’ ahead of our true desires, we prevent ourselves from truly appreciating and loving our lives and we fail to give ourselves the chance to live the life of our dreams!
The intention of this book is to help you live each day with energy, vitality and purpose. Together we are going to explore the keys to living a life of purpose with an abundance of energy, health, vitality, self-respect, self-love, self-forgiveness and self-esteem… the keys to gratitude and success... the keys to achieving extraordinary wellness!
This book will teach you how to refocus on what you value, get you back on track with your life vision and help you regain your passion for life. Through deep awareness, new wisdom and choice, you can eliminate negative beliefs, stop the self-sabotage and learn to let go of your fears, frustrations and the drama in your life. Because the more you know about yourself, what drives you, what excites you, what you love and are passionate about, the more effortless it will be for you to achieve what you want and live a life of sustainable happiness and fulfillment!
