“Are you interested in life coaching?”
It seemed a simple enough question, and the answer was yes. I’ve always been interested in introspection and self-improvement. Life coaching falls cozily beneath both umbrellas. Three obstacles stood in the way between me and a potential life coach, however: the phone, the car, and my wallet.
As I strive to know myself better, I’ve learned that there are a few surefire ways to get me to avoid doing something. If it involves making a phone call, having to leave the house for an appointment, or digging deep into my wallet, I’ll probably put it off or not do it at all. Strangely enough, this applies not only to things I wouldn’t want to do anyways (the DMV, the dentist, the gym), but also to things that I know I’d enjoy, like a massage. I hate making phone calls, filling my calendar makes me anxious, and – as a classic under buyer – I have a hard time spending money.
So, yes. I was interested in life coaching, but not motivated enough to call around, make an appointment, and write a big check. And that’s why I was game for giving Life Reimagined a go when I was approached to try it and participate in a focus group. Life Reimagined would bring the benefits of introspection and life coaching to me. I could fully participate and reap all the benefits without picking up the phone, leaving my house, or spending a hefty sum.
I spent some time navigating the site and answering some questions about myself and what I was looking for in this season of my life. As I reflected on these things using the tools provided, I created a Life Map and a purpose statement that continues to guide my days long after the exercise was complete. I met with a certified Life Coach from the comfort of my home, via video chat on my computer. We chatted for an hour, with my Coach putting me at ease immediately. I had countless a-ha moments in that hour, and furiously scribbled notes that have provided me with tools and inspiration I use daily.
For the first time in a long while, I feel that my days are structured in a way that leaves me feeling complete. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, when I should be doing it. I feel balanced, doing things that benefit myself, my family, and my work. And as I contemplate what life looks like for me in the next few years, as my kids grow and I begin exploring what career opportunities are out there for me, I feel like I have a map made just for me.
I’m a fan, and I’m thrilled to share my Life Reimagined testimonial with you:
Yes, I was able to try Life Reimagined at no cost to me. And yes, I did get to spend time in New York City while filming my testimonial. But that was where my obligation to Life Reimagined ended. And yet I feel compelled to share this service with you, not out of any obligation to Life Reimagined, but out of an authentic desire to share something that has really and truly been of great value in my life. For less than a dinner out with friends or a few cups of coffee, you can give yourself something that will quite possibly change your life.
If you have any questions about my experience or want to chat further about details, please reach out to me, either through the comments or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer to discuss privately. I’d be more than happy to share more if anyone is interested.
