Here’s where my recent journey of self development started a few years ago. I filled out a “wheel of life” similar to this one, and whoa, it was a super-lopsided wheel!
I was pretty satisfied in a few areas on my life, but I scored myself low on personal growth, career dreams, contribution (my positive impact on the world) and physical environment. If I’d tried to drive a car with off-balance wheels like that, I’d definitely run off the road!
That was an ah-ha moment. I finally knew what I needed to focus on! It’s the stuff we repress or blow off as unimportant (when it is important) that eventually catches up with us and makes us unhealthy in mind, spirit and body and unsuccessful in our attempts to improve our lives.
Within a few months of knowing what I needed to focus on my daughters and I were living in a better home that fit their growth and my needs for space. Next, I started studying again for the first time in 20 years and within a year I completed my first four coaching certifications. A year after that I was a Master Coach and in a new job where I feel like I’m having a greater long term contribution on people and our planet.
I’m still surprised at how fast positive changes happened in my and my family’s lives especially after not even knowing how stuck I’d been for so long. It started with simple clarity found in minutes with a tool like this and then a simple first action step.
Fill out a wheel of life for yourself, and something will pop up for you too! Ask me questions and comment to let me know how it goes.
Here’s to turning things around, starting with you!
