It’s A Jungle Out There…

and you’re surrounded by wild animals and thick undergrowth, you feel stifled
and hemmed in, you can’t see ahead, can’t find your way.
It can feel just like this sometimes, as you fight your way through your life.
You need a machete to chop through to the light, you need a guide to show
you where to go.

When it all gets too much and you can’t see the wood for the trees, when you’re
completely overwhelmed by your problems and issues – what do you do?

  • Do you pretend everything’s okay?
  • Do you sink into a pit of despair?
  • Do you reach for alcohol, food or drugs?
  • These things can seem to help for awhile but they’re really only bandages
    that cover up the cause. If the cause isn’t allowed to come to the surface and be
    acknowledged, the wound will fester and ulcerate, eventually oozing out from
    under the bandage and creating even greater problems.
    I invite you to rip the bandage off – let the fresh air in so the healing can

    There are many ways you can start the healing. A great way to commence is to
    make time for yourself to do something that makes you happy, every day. It
    could be reading a book, having an aromatic bath, going for a walk, yoga –
    whatever is ‘your thing’. When you do this for yourself, you are allowing
    yourself to receive nurturing and love, you are valuing yourself as a person.
    This will build over time into feelings of self esteem and self worth and when you
    have those, anything is possible.

    A person with high self esteem, when faced with the jungle, will hack through
    to the light with energy and confidence in her own ability. She will not cower
    in the face of wild beasts because she knows she is the power in her own life, she
    is the one in charge.
    When the jungle seems to be impenetrable and self esteem is missing, then it’s
    time to get some Life Coaching and NLP to help you get through to the clearing
    which is just ahead.
    The good thing to know is that there is always a clearing – sometimes all you
    need is someone who has the map.

    When you are ready to hack through your jungle now, call Ingrid on 0416 243 444 for your free 15 minute consultation to discover which life coaching package is right for you.
