Starting over at any age is more than possible. I get occasional emails from desperate readers who think they have totally screwed up their lives. They think they can’t afford to hire me as their coach but they reach out, hoping for help.
I’ll often ask them to do something simple, like read a blog post and email me back what came up for them. Or I’ll send them a couple of questions by email. But rather than just answering the damn questions – they’ll write back telling some pathetic story about why they can’t start over. Bull! Starting over is really your only choice.
It really doesn’t matter how far you’ve fallen or how long you’ve been down. I know. I’ve hit bottom and we can always wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start. Always. At any notch, on the way down, I could have decided to stop there and start over. I’ve written this post for everyone who thinks it’s too late to create the life or business you most want.
What if there was only one universal truth and all we had to do was get busy following that simple message?
Would you follow this message?
Be yourself. Stay present. Trust yourself. Take frequent action. Start over.
What if you didn’t need to know anymore than you know right now in order to turn your life around?
What if you are already brilliant enough and equipped enough to get what you want?
What if you already know what you need to know to make your best move?
What if you’ve repeatedly made the right decision but for some reason you’ve second-guessed yourself and needlessly stopped short of action?
You are closer than you think you are. You’re almost over the hump. Starting over is always a matter of being present and letting go of the past. Your desire is telling you where you need to go and most likely you just need to be bolder sooner while going for it.
Just because there appears to be a lot of folks selling you how-to and what-to-do, you don’t have to buy it. Often they only know what’s best for them.
You are the best source of your own wisdom.
For a couple of weeks now I’ve been thinking about this commonly shared story about the gold rushes. There is a mini series showing right now called Klondike that illustrates my point. History shows that more folks got wealthy by selling pans, lumber, shovels, sex, booze and supplies, to the seekers of riches, than those who actually struck it rich.
This story is now told to illustrate the wisdom for becoming a how-to-get-rich info marketer. The promise is, by selling books, audios, videos and memberships sites, that teach others how to get rich, you’ll get rich.
Like many of you, I’ve been intrigued by the possibility of online riches. In the past, I’ve shelled out my bucks for all kinds of “can’t miss” info-products and deals.
But here’s why I’ve been questioning this modern day gold rush. I think, just like the original, it may be a business model based on illusion. An illusion based business model is one that sells more hope than substance. Am I nuts or is this really closer to the truth?
We say we like connecting, expressing and media socializing, but how much of this would we be doing, if we didn’t think that it would lead us to finding online gold?
I go back and forth on how best to claim online gold. I question the value of social media frequently, yet I’m still using it, so I’m not judging any method. If anything I’m confused as hell as to where it’s all going? But I’ve learned that confusion often signals opportunity.
I do know this; when I stake my own claim, in this online gold rush, I’ll only sell a how-to system that helps you to express and promote your own uniqueness. That’s the best shot we all have at riches.
Your best shot at riches is to express your authentic uniqueness.
I’ll only sell what I and my clients have proven. That’s why I’m such an advocate for life coaching. Coached people more often create the lives and businesses they want to create. Coached people take more action so they fail and succeed faster, sooner.
Those who think they can go it alone without a mentor or coach are the really crazy ones.
Coaching works because it respects and honors individuality. Any coach worth his or her fee will help you to take action swiftly and do it your way in a way that promotes your uniqueness.
Some of what I know will work for you and some won’t. It’s my job as coach, to create the structure and environment that will have you repeatedly choosing, acting, failing and adjusting.
Fail faster better.
Fail more often and you increase the probability of succeeding. Get to a place of not giving a chit about the outcomes and you’ll try more things. Try more things and you’ll increase the probability of stumbling on something that works. How’s that for certainty?
It doesn’t’ matter how often you fail and have to start over. What does matter is that you do start over. Starting over is your new lease on life. Jump in and enjoy.
Start over. Be yourself. Stay present. Trust yourself. Take frequent action. Start over.
