"I was trying to figure out my life. I knew I wanted massive change but I didn't know how riddle the Self Development "

So I was in a mess. I was not in a good place. In fact I just came back from doing a trip which was a good place for a while. So I came back and went for a Camino walk because I was trying to figure out my life.

I knew I wanted massive change but I didn't know how the riddle of the self development looks I've done a range of different things. I was just engaged with my work and my own business.

I've created a monster and I created a business which I thought I loved but ended up doing something I hated doing or do I no longer wanted to do.

"My personal life I felt very stuck. I was in a 26 year marriage which wasn't going well and I felt like I tried everything"...

Not only that in my personal life I felt very stuck. I was in a 26 year marriage which wasn't going well and I felt like I tried everything. I felt like I. Read all the self development books I had.

You know I'd spoken to people and when I turned I just felt there was no way to go. And it led me to actually on a spur of the moment walk the Camino and I booked a one way flight to Lisbon.

Yeah one night in the Air BNB.. Out of desperation and I walked 650 KM to try and figure out.

I did not expect that when I came into the program I did not expect the reasoning why I actually joined the program.

But there was a very heart felt. It was nothing I had to think about. It was just something that was is this this is it this is. This is where I'm going to get my answers.

This is where I feel there's a community that actually makes sense...

So that's powerful. It just something resonated with me. And I was not in a trusting place that was big.

The human aspect. There was some you know it wasn't something tangible there was just something I felt as a feeling of experience I  get that like the realness of the experience and the realness of all of the conversations that what people shared.

"Oh coaching is something that I'm probably interested in because I want to work with people. I want it to have meaning based business"

I recognized the need to do work on myself. I joined on the basis of self development now so that I could do the deep dive. Yeah I mean yeah I didn't expect that.

I actually went thinking that “Oh coaching is something that I'm probably interested in because I want to work with people. I want it to have meaning based business”.

Yeah you know that's something that's that's that's kind of the track that I was going I was doing a lot of charity bike rides you know wanting to contribute.

That was kind of things that I was doing outside of my work. Yeah. Was driving me. Yeah.

So the idea that I wanted to work with people was there and then I wanted to have a connection with people and do more meaningful work to contribute.

It was the reason why I went there. What brought me to to come and have a look. But there was also that recognition that I needed to do the work myself.

It gives a bit of a before and after and I'm so understanding and getting clarity. It's almost like the pieces of a puzzle or the questions I've been asking. It's like the pieces of the puzzle all started to put into place and kind of makes sense.

I actually told my clients this which is really quite funny because I always say I use this terminal because I love climbing mountains right. I love to climb. I see a mountain and I just want to get dressed. It's just like so this is the analogy I use in order to get to your goal in order to get to that destination and see that you have to take the stepping stones to get there.

Yeah but sometimes you don't know the way you don't know the route but you have to take the first step and you might go off path here. Yeah I think that didn't work.

You go back on Park and eventually you figure it out and then you finally get to the top of that mountain. And then when you get to the top you see this awesome thing.

Yeah it was well worth the effort and energy that it took to get there. Yeah and you feel so good but then you can see beyond that and there's so much more.

So I see it as a journey. I see it as though it's almost part of the journey in the becoming.

You have to overcome. Yeah. And that's kind of how it felt for me. There's this missing to quote bring Nate Brown. It's this. There's the messy middle. Yes.

And that I did not expect that to be a roller coaster ride like it was. Yeah but that's what it was.

It's like the pieces of the puzzle all started to put into place and kind of makes sense...
