Do you ever pause and wistfully wonder, what if or if only….?

What if you could just feel more excited by your life more often…?

If only you could just feel more fulfilled?

…and then the day’s demands and expectations and responsibilities drag you swiftly back to the present… and you carry on as before.

When you’re busy, and life is acceptable, even good sometimes, it’s easy to pretend that everything’s fine. And yet… if you’re really honest with yourself… you know there’s something missing. You can’t figure out what it is, but its absence makes you feel dissatisfied and frustrated.

A milestone birthday, pivotal life event or the beginning of a new year often brings this feeling even more into focus, when you take a long hard look at your life, and find it lacking in sparkle.

It’s as if your outer life isn’t quite in alignment with who you really are.

That was me.

Here’s my story…

A few years ago, having spent 20 years working in a variety of careers because I didn’t know what I really wanted to do, I found myself running my own small business. However, it was a business born out of necessity rather than passion, simply to allow me the flexibility to work around looking after my young son.
But the work I was doing wasn’t satisfying and my heart wasn’t in it. I had no motivation and the business was struggling as a result.

I felt as if my spirit had been caged and I longed to find what I needed to feel free.

Caught between a rock and a hard place, I was trying to keep the important elements of my life secure on my life-raft but my lack of life-purpose was weighing me down. I was rudderless, had no real idea where I was going and my raft was in danger of sinking. Which wasn’t good, particularly as there was a child on the raft with me.

And then I woke up.

I DECIDED that I simply wasn’t prepared to settle for a life-raft tied together with bits of string and gaffer tape.

I wanted to trade up.

I wanted a yacht.

Sleek, beautiful, smooth. Able to weather storms and take advantage of blue skies. With a wheel I could stand behind and navigate a course that I plotted and not be at the mercy of every trade wind that came my way.

Are you with me?

I wanted to feel a strong pull in the direction I was going and feel sure that my destination would suit me. And I wanted to enjoy the journey.

Making that decision was a catalyst.

In a lightbulb moment I realised that I had been looking for the answer in the wrong place. It wasn’t somewhere out there… it was inside of me.

And there began a long journey of self-discovery.

I managed to escape for a three day solo retreat and set about searching in earnest. I knew that I needed to sift through everything that was swirling around in my head and make some sense of it. I went for long windswept walks, sat and watched the sea and poured everything out into my journal. My dreams, my frustrations, my mistakes… and all the things that make me who I am.

I gathered it all together and sorted it into something approaching coherence. And suddenly it all became clear. I had found what I had inadvertently spent years searching for.

My Life Compass.

If you don’t know where you’re heading you have no idea which direction to start off in. You might be moving, but you won’t feel any satisfaction because you can’t measure your progress towards what you desire.

There is a strong correlation between fulfilment and purpose – the former can be hard to come by if you aren’t sure about the latter. When you know what your purpose is it gives you a sense of direction. Then when you start taking steps to incorporate this into your life, it adds a greater depth of joy and meaning to your days… the foundations of fulfilment.

If you’re a woman who is no longer prepared to settle for less than you deserve, if you’re done with drifting and you’re ready to forge your own path to fulfilment then this is for you.

Discover Your Life Compass is an online coaching programme which guides you through the soul-searching and helps you to discover what you need to feel fulfilled.

It’s a deep-dive into the nitty gritty of what makes you tick, what lights you up and what your experiences to date have taught you.

It encourages you to really home in on your hopes and dreams and work out what they mean to you.

Crucially, it then takes the context of your current life into account so you can view those dreams through a practical lens and make workable plans to move towards them.

It is this practicality within Discover Your Life Compass that makes all the difference.

This isn’t a career advice programme that will spit out a job description at the end of it. Nor is it a programme that will result in you finding a purpose that is so at odds with your current life that you have absolutely no hope of pursuing it. There’s no fulfilment to be found along that path that’s for sure.

Here in the real world, there aren’t many of us in our middle years that have the luxury of being able to drop everything and start afresh!

Discover Your Life Compass will help you to distil the essence of your fulfilment… the elements that you need to weave into your days to put the spring back into your step.

It will show you which parts of your life are working with you and which parts are holding you back, which makes it easier to see where to start making changes.

A word of advice: dream BIG dreams but take small steps towards them. The biggest hindrance to changing your life is thinking you need to do it ALL at once… cue overwhelm, closely followed by quitting and returning to the unfulfilling status quo.

Small, doable, consistent steps in the right direction create momentum and it is this momentum that creates lasting change.

Your Life Compass will guide you to where you belong.

In fact, you could say that your Life Compass will guide you home.

My Life Compass guided me to create all you can find here in the pages of my online home.

I belong here.

It’s a good feeling – I’d love for you to experience it too.

If you’re serious about improving your life, completing the Discover Your Life Compass Programme will give you:

the relief of finally having a strong sense of direction

a bird’s eye view of your current life, what’s working and what causes frustration

clarity around why those elements make you feel frustrated

an understanding of the elements you need to incorporate into your world in order to feel fulfilled

a sense of excitement now you know exactly what needs to change and what to change it to

an inner sense of knowing that you can forge a life for yourself that makes you feel complete

more confidence that you’re making life decisions that are right for you

a yardstick for measuring future opportunities against

a framework for moving forward and the inspiration to start making some changes

It’s like going to the doctor. You go because you’re feeling rubbish and you’re not sure why. The doctor diagnoses you and prescribes medication. You come out already feeling a bit better because now you know what the problem is and you’ve got medication to deal with it.

The diagnosis is just the start. It’s the continued application of the medication that leads to results.
