In 2010 I realised how deeply unhappy 😢 I was in my marriage AND I almost went bankrupt!
In my bid for a more balanced work life situation, I had bitten off more than I could chew.
The recession had me ‘throw in the towel’ and go into a debt management.
I took advice …..
The advice – ‘Continue to tread water, otherwise you will lose it all.’
It was like choosing sharks or tarantulas.
I treaded water.
And….I continued to look for way’s to make money fast.
I got a decent paying job & invested in self development weekends.
I joined MLM schemes comparing myself to the people on the higher levels who seemed to be killing it, and ask myself why I wasn’t.
My friends & family would roll their eyes or go running as soon as I said ‘I’ve just joined a new opportunity….’
The distraction of all of this kept me from having to think about the most pressing question – ‘What to do about my marriage”.
I was looking for a quick buck to get on top, instead of asking myself what I really wanted from life.
Have you ever tried a million different things to change your circumstances or distract you from real life?
Perhaps that investment that went wrong. You dipped your toe outside your comfort zone, it bit you in the ass, and now you won’t do anything else for fear of it all going wrong again.
You continue to do the job to pay the bills and a promotion if you’re lucky.
You get nice things, keep the family happy, take the nice holidays and pay for the multitude of things the kids need.
And yet….deep inside….
💥 You KNOW you’re not happy or content.
💥 You KNOW there is more to life.
💥 You KNOW you have so much more to give and offer the world.
There is NOTHING wrong with trying different things.
It means you’re curious and not prepared to settle for what is.
And I would offer if it hasn’t worked up till now ask yourself why….. …..
Perhaps its because it isn’t who you truly are.
Stop chasing the money and start thinking about what you want.
Get serious about the right support to help you figure this out.
I help people who have walked a similar path without asking themselves what they really give a sh*t about.
