Are you passionate about what you do for a living?
Do you wake up in the morning, loving life and excited to see what the new day
Or are you just going through the motions?
The sad truth is that most people are just treading water and existing, rather
than truly living a worthwhile and fulfilling life.
Many years ago, a family member said to my father, “John, if you had it all to do
over again, would you do the same things?” To which my father replied,
I was devastated when I heard this, here was my father, in his late fifties, saying
he regretted the decisions he’d made and that he would live a different life if he
had another chance.
He’d spent ten years in the Merchant Navy, living his dreams and traveling the
world. Then he’d met and married my mother and given his dream career away to
live a life ‘more suited’ to a married man. He had to find a new career and retrained
as a design draftsman because it’s hard to be a Marine Engineer on dry land. For
the rest of his life he talked about those ten years and the passion and joy were
plain to see. How sad that he felt he couldn’t have the career he loved as well as a
wife and family.

as I have my faculties. Retirement, for me, is not an option. It is totally inspiring to
be able to help people transform their lives, to be a catalyst for the release of
The key element to Life Coaching and NLP is to get people believing in themselves,
learning to love themselves and seeing the possibilities that are in front of them.
I urge you to look at the life you have created. Does it inspire you, does it fill you
with enthusiasm, can people tell how passionate you are about life just by looking
in your eyes?
If the answer to these questions is ‘no’ then how can you change things? How can
you live a life that is more meaningful and inspirational?
Everyone is entitled to a rich and fulfilling life, including you. Life
Coaching and NLP is a great way to get back in touch with your passion and start
to live a rewarding and meaningful life.
