Is Your Life Working For You?

Is your life working for you?

It’s a question few people ask on a regular basis… and one even those who ask have a really difficult time answering. As a coach, I ask my clients a lot of challenging questions. Sometimes, I ask things like “Who would you have to become to have the life you want?” or “What’s getting in the way?” or “What keeps you sabotaging you?” These aren’t easy questions to answer but they are necessary things to consider.

And, when we consider the idea of whether life is or is not working for us, so many questions bubble to the service:

What does life working for me look like?

Should life be working for me all of the time or some of the time?

Is ‘life working’ about things being okay, good, great? Or is ‘fine’ enough?

Is life truly working for anyone?

And the analysis paralysis begins…

And here’s the thing I want you to consider:

You know whether or not life’s working for you by how your life feels…

Read that again.

When your life is working in a way that’s congruent with who you really are, life feels good. Not necessarily comfortable but definitely satisfying. Life feels full and engaging…
