“I feel stuck.”
“I’ve made a lot of choices to please others, instead of myself.”
“I want to feel again – all the feelings – joy passion, love.”
“I'm not living up to my potential, my dreams. Something got lost along the way.”
“Life just wasn't supposed to be this way.”
Have you ever said any of these things to yourself? I know I have.
I just finished my first 5 Day Purpose Course and these are just some of the comments that the women shared about why they were taking a course with me to live on purpose.
My heart sank with every comment because I've felt all of this. It was August of 2008 and I was staring at my computer screen, lost. I felt like such a fraud. Everyone thought I loved my job but I knew deep down that it wasn't for me. My whole life felt like a fraud. The city I lived in, the job I had, the relationship I was in.
But I didn't know how to move forward. I was too scared.
Then my friend, Sue, suggested her life coach. Sue was growing so much – she had so much confidence and was taking new risks. When I met her coach, I burst into tears. He was so gentle, so supportive, so encouraging about me and my purpose.
But when he offered to work with me, I said “no.” I felt guilty spending money on myself. I felt like I should be able to do it myself.
But a few weeks later, I was back to feeling like a fraud again. I wasn't moving forward. I needed help. So I called him again and with his support, I applied to graduate school, the first step on this journey to being your life purpose coach. I needed help to move forward.
We all do. At the end of the 5 Day Course, these same women said:
“So enlightening & having more clarity now that I never realized.”
“Feeling so inspired. So grateful for the wisdom, Carin.”
“I now believe in myself.”
I want you to believe in yourself and have clarity too. My deepest is desire is for you to live on purpose. I so badly want to inspire and empower millions of women to change their lives and go for their dreams that it sometimes hurts my heart.
Living on Purpose gives me the greatest joy I've ever known.
Living on Purpose fulfills my heart and soul and lets me leave a legacy.
Living on Purpose gives me freedom to travel the world (& be paid for it).
Living on Purpose makes me feel PROUD, COURAGEOUS, and BADASS!
I want you to live on purpose too.
As I've told you, it took being robbed at gunpoint to finally take steps toward pursuing my purpose. But with a coach's help, I realized that I'm worthy of my dreams. I'm worthing of feeling joy. I'm worthy of loving myself and making a huge impact on the world.
And so are you.
