What it Really Means to Transform Your Life

(Check out the link for my new webinar below!)

Have you ever wondered what it means to "Transform Your Life"?

This phrase is used so often today, but does anyone ever really understand what it means? After all, does it look the same for everybody? And how does it even work?

Here's what it means to Transform Your Life through Strategic Intervention:

It means you get to live your life in a way that is AUTHENTIC and TRUE for you.

It means that you get to experience what you YOU want to experience more often!

It means that you have the ability to CHANGE anything in your life that you want to change.

It means that you can learn how to RECOVER faster, better and more easily from setbacks.

It means that you get to set BOUNDARIES and live your life on YOUR own terms!

It means that you no longer have to be WEIGHED DOWN by your past.

It means that you can learn to embrace all the GOODNESS that life has to offer.

It means that you can choose to step away from the DRAMA and become WHOLE again.

It means that you can learn to MASTER your own emotional states so you can suffer less.

It means that you get to step into the GREATNESS and POWER that was intended for you.

It means that you learn how to LOVE and HONOR yourself completely and consistently.

It means that you can EMPOWER yourself to go after your goals and dreams!

Let's deep dive into a real example of Strategic Intervention at work:

Brenda (name changed for privacy) was in a marriage where she felt that her husband was always frustrated and disappointed with her. She struggled every day because she felt she was not living up to the expectations that she and her husband had of her as a wife.

Even though this woman was highly educated and very dedicated to her family, she constantly felt as though she was not enough, and this only served to exacerbate the challenges in the relationship. When Brenda was struggling with these issues and feeling at her lowest, she had trouble getting out of bed and taking care of her responsibilities.

Now while many of you may be wondering if Brenda's relationship may be somewhat abusive, I'm going to challenge you to keep an open mind, as it is very easy to make assumptions about things that we don't really know much about. In this particular case, it was obvious that the majority of what was going on in this situation was actually going on INSIDE of this woman, and not necessarily a result of anything her husband was doing.

As a Coach, our job is to address the issues that our clients bring to us. This woman did not feel that she was in an abusive relationship, but rather that she was struggling to find a way to make both herself and her husband happy. All she really wanted was to feel better about herself and the role she was playing for her family, and it was important for her to feel that she was being a good wife.

The first thing I asked Brenda to do was to define in detail what being a "good wife" would look like, TO HER. It was important for her to get clarity around what that meant for her, so she would not only be able to define that standard for herself, but she would also have a model of behaviour that she could use to bring herself into alignment with if appropriate.

Through this process of getting clarity, Brenda actually began to realize that she was already doing many of the things that she believed would define her as a good wife. She was also able to identify areas where she was feeling dissatisfied, and develop some new ideas about how she could make some minor changes that would make her happier.

Brenda's problem was not the situation or her circumstances as she had previously thought, but the MEANING she had been giving to her circumstances and the STORY she had been telling herself about her own value. Her thoughts had created a negative emotional state, which led her to associate a negative meaning to her situation, and as a result she felt so poorly about herself that it destroyed her motivation and made her feel depressed.

Even though there may be times when our problems seem complex and insurmountable, once we are able to understand what is causing them and gain a different perspective, the solutions actually become quite simple. When we change the thoughts, we can change the emotion; when we change the emotion, we can change the meaning; and when we change the meaning, we can change our story and ultimately our lives.

A couple of months after our last coaching session, I received an email from Brenda thanking me for helping her and her family. She told me she was extremely grateful, because not only was she feeling better, but she had managed to secure a job and she had also been able to create a much more positive home environment for herself and her family. Everyone was happier as a result.

Transforming your life doesn't have to mean that you have to do a tonne of work or totally shift everything in your life (even though sometimes that may be the clients ultimate goal). It can often be something as simple as changing your perspective, making a decision you've been putting off, or even setting some personal boundaries that enable you to feel more in control of how you are treated.

What really matters in the end is that you get the results that you're after. In my experience, it's always about wanting to feel differently than you currently do. Small shifts can make a big difference in how you feel, and as usual, when you do the work required to transform your inner world, everything in your outer world changes as a result.

As the late Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

So what about you?
