Many people make it through life quite well, thank you very much. It is not difficult to find your way from one end of a life to the other. Some might say there is no real effort that one must make. You pretty much just have to keep moving forward until you can’t anymore. There is no real accomplishment in just making it to the end of your life, you must make it mean something. What does this mean? Well, it means many different things to different people. To you it could mean one thing and to the person right next to you it could me something totally different. There are many ways that a person can make their life mean something.
A person could bring meaning to their life by starting a family. They could get married, settle down and have kids. They could raise those kids to become good strong members of society and it would bring much meaning to their existence. On the other hand they could never have kids but have an effect on the community by starting a business. They might start some sort of a company that they use to help businesses improve their customer service or marketing capabilities which in turns creates a better life for them. For example, I had a friend who was inspired by her daughter’s love for everything princesses. So she decided to create an e-commerce site with that exact name. The web store became THE site to go for dresses for your princess with a delightful collection of princess clothing that ranged from pastel princess dresses, tutus and petticoats, princess capes and cloaks to sparkling tiaras, crowns, wands, and satin slippers. An inspiration from daughter to mom that continues to bring pleasure to many little princesses! Or they might start a non -profit aimed at helping under privileged or undocumented children, the elderly, abandoned animals, or endangered species. There are literally hundreds of ways to bring meaning to your life. It is up to you to find it.
One thing that I have found help is to have someone there that you can run Ideas past. Someone that can help you take a step back and look at the big picture. If you have somebody that can be trusted to help you make important decisions about your direction and about your career path, life becomes much simpler. It becomes much easier to analyze the big picture instead of making decisions without considering the scope of what you are doing. Many people are able to find a job, then when they lose that job they can usually find another. Many people never even consider the meaning their life could have if they did something meaningful with it.
That is where your coach comes in. Sometimes it is hard to see the right move but discussing it with your coach will change all of that. The coach does not tell you what to do or make choices for you. They help you to come to concise decisions of your own accord. You will finally be in control of your own destiny as you have always wanted. You will be able to proudly walk into the future knowing that you have made a difference and it will be made possible by your own personal coach.
