Do you know what's standing between you, and the life you want?

No, Really.

As a life coach and therapist I regularly meet with clients who show up for counseling or coaching, certain that they know what their problem is, and what needs to be done to fix it:

And you know what? This is a great start. People who show up for personal growth work with these kinds of aspirations have already done an enormous amount of work: They have mustered up the motivation to take a risk, and reach out for the support of a professional. That in itself is an amazing success.

Aaannnddd…. the next phase of the work in counseling or coaching is often helping people go further, and dig deeper to understand what the true source of “the problem” really is. (Hint: It is almost never what you think it is). Once that is revealed, we can then move to creating action-oriented strategies that will create meaningful and lasting change.

This process is very empowering for people because the focus often shifts from feeling trapped by unfortunate circumstances, to feeling in control and able to take meaningful, positive action. They go from feeling stuck, and like they're just spinning their wheels as they ineffectively chasing after what they think is the solution to the problem, to feeling like they are actually making progress.

But the first step is truly self-awareness. If you don't know what's really getting in your way, you can't possibly fix it.

Can you relate? If so, you're in luck: Today on the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast I'm walking you through an activity that will raise your self-awareness, and help you “get under the hood” of your inner experience. You'll learn some new things about yourself AND get direction for how to start making changes. Listen to the podcast, and when prompted take the “What's Holding You Back” quiz below. Then I'll talk you through your answers, what they mean about you, and how you can start creating real and lasting change in your life today.

Here's to growth!
