If you were going to plan a road trip across America or a hike the Appalachian Trail, you would likely do a little research. You might consult some maps, research, and ask people who have made the trip before. You wouldn’t go in cold unless you truly embraced uncertainty and adventure! Similarly, if you were really serious about making a lifestyle change or running a marathon, you would likely hire a trainer or at least do some research to learn from others’ mistakes and hacks.
When it comes to making life changes, then, it would make sense to seek a “travel agent’ of sorts for your fresh start new life adventure. Hiring a mentor or coach, or joining a mastermind group of likeminded ‘travelers’ could provide the motivation, inspiration, and encouragement you need for lasting change. You wouldn’t take the travel agent with you on the actual trip, but you would enjoy the trip more with the sage advice and tips from someone who knows the ropes. More importantly, you would have support. Often times when making a major life change, those close to you may feel threatened by or misunderstand your reasons for embarking on a new path. Hiring a mentor to help you train, plan, and navigate the difficult terrain will ensure you make the journey your own.
When embarking on my own fresh start, it started out a bit lonely. I chose to isolate because those from whom I sought support did not understand my situation or my choices. Eventually I found a group of likeminded individuals who were empowered in making a bold statement by deliberately choosing the thoughts that would create the life they wanted. All of us are certified trainers in Infinite Possibilities based upon the teachings and book by Mike Dooley. I had the distinct privilege of personally meeting Mike at a seminar earlier this year, and his authentic message Thoughts Become Things helps empower others. Mike’s transition from the corporate rat race to messenger of hope resonated with my own life situation. Finding a community of others living on purpose has inspired me to share more of my own story with you.
I believe you are the guru of your own life adventure. If you need a travel agent who knows the ropes and can ask you the right questions to prepare you, email me for more information on private or groups sessions and seminars (online and in person). I look forward to sharing the journey with you!
