Life seems so much more complicated these days — more stuff, more responsibilities, more expenses, more things to worry about. Are you longing to break free from all the craziness, to live a simpler kind of life? As a Simplicity Coach, I can guide you to a more fulfilling place in the world — one where you are free from all the excess baggage, no longer trapped by your job or debt or the expectations of others. Sound good? Well come on in and check it out…
In many ways, our society programs us to seek out a complicated life. We’re taught to trade free time for a big-screen TV, fresh air for a 6-figure salary, and peace of mind for a McMansion. What we think will make us “successful” only ties us down — to an 80-hour work-week, a huge mortgage, and a credit card bill we can never pay off. We’re not happy, but we just don’t know any other way of doing things. We’re caught on an insane treadmill of achieving and acquiring, consuming and complaining — all the while denying our own true needs in favor of somebody else’s dream. But no one is going to turn off that treadmill for you. You have to be the one to say, “Stop! I’ve had enough!”
Simplicity comes from the inside — the only way to truly “simplify” is to make a change in your state of mind, the set of values you live by, and the choices you make on a daily basis. It’s about choosing your own path in life, regardless of what your family or friends or co-workers think you “should” be doing. You have to be willing to leave behind the habits, beliefs, and behaviors that allowed you to become trapped in the first place. Most importantly, you’ve got to start thinking for yourself — deciding what you want your life to look like, and sticking to your guns when the crowd pressures you to follow them. This is something I know a lot about — I drove right off the beaten path when I became a full-time RVer, and I wouldn’t go back to the “traditional” way of living for anything (please read about my own personal path to simplicity and definition of success if you would like a better idea of where I am coming from in my own life.)
There is no one set “formula” for achieving simplicity. It’s a very personal process, and the path is different for each individual. What simplifies your life may not be the same thing that simplifies mine — but what matters most is that YOU are happy with the results (after all, not everyone wants to go live in a hut in the woods like Thoreau!) What areas of your life need a bit of an overhaul? Not happy with your work? Does maintaining your living environment take too much time and effort? Are you in debt, worried that you will never achieve financial freedom? Do you wish you could teach your children that happiness doesn’t come from the mall? Would you like to have the breathing space to just sit back and relax every once in a while? I can help!
Throughout the years of working with clients (and along my own personal path to simplicity) I have discovered one universal fact about trying to simplify your life — it has to be a holistic process. Change in one area of your life are going to encourage shifts in other areas, and you have to be prepared to see the process all the way through. That’s why I help my clients work on simplifying every important area of their lives. It doesn’t matter the magnitude of change — whether you want to reduce your monthly expenses or seriously downsize your living environment, to make mealtimes a bit easier or embark on a whole new career. Any goal is “doable,” as long as you are willing to commit to the life changes necessary for achieving it. And I’ll be there with you the whole way — helping you create a life without debt or worry, where you no longer feel trapped by your job or circumstances, where you have the space and time and energy for all of your pursuits. So ask yourself where you want to start:
finish coaching package descriptions (downloadable coaching inventory and e-junkie link, include goal-setting)
change coaching to $100 an hour (so the discount is bigger)
set up auto links to relevant services on bottom of each blog page
go through blogs and plug in “clients” with link to relevant services
update prices and savings on all packages
