The concept of this post rings deadly true for me. When I began planning my cubicle escape, I had to re-imagine my life and how it would look. When we move to change things there has to be a new picture, one that you create. Sally Hope can inspire you to do just that. Enjoy the fourth video in her Rockstar Life Series.
Greetings Nomadic readers!!
I’m Sally. A life coach, but don’t hold that against me.
Coaching is all about creating the kind of life you want, and really, how awesome is that?
I am so glad that Jeannie invited me to talk to you guys because hopefully I can help with some of those ol’ pesky “How’s” in your life. Like, “HOW do I get the things I want in my life?” and “HOW do I go from where I am now, to where I want to be?” As a life coach, that’s my job. To help you get crystal clear on what your big vision is for your ideal life, help you come up with a plan to execute it, provide accountability for you so you’ll actually do it, and be here with you all along the way to give you virtual hugs and encouragement, and cheerleading and to say, “YEAH!!! You can do this…frickin GO FOR IT!!!”
When you are “going for it,” I like to call that “creating your Rockstar Life.” To me, a Rockstar Life is all about living the kind of life you want, creating your own rules, and not taking ‘no’ for an answer. It’s about being willing to go out of your comfort zone. No rockstar got where they are without taking risks and deciding that their life was going to be the way they wanted it.
And that’s what I’m here for. To help you realize and create your Rockstar Life.
This post is the fourth installment out of a five step series on how to “Create Your Rockstar Life.” The first three steps were: 1) Leave the House, 2) Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway, and 3) Don’t Wait For The Right Time (because it will never show up). Today’s post is called “Create Your Own Rules.”
When we have big dreams for ourselves, they are always going to seem scary and intangible. And what’s worse, you will probably have people in your life that have told you in the past or currently tell you a million reasons why your dream is a bad idea. And what’s even worse is that you have your OWN messages that you tell yourself as to why you can’t have what you want.
All of these things are “other people’s rules.” Maybe your parents have told you that you should get a stable and secure job, even though in your heart, you want to be an entrepreneur. Or maybe you had someone tell you that you’re not good enough or won’t be able to create your dreams. Or maybe your own negative thoughts prevent you from moving forward on your dreams (“how will I pay the bills?” “that’ll never work,” “I must be crazy”, etc).
