Balancing your Gifts and Challenges

There's an amazing balance between your gift (or strengths) and your challenge (your weakness) and once you appreciate how they play out in your life, you can go forward with confidence and clarity.

Have a close look at the infographic and see for yourself - whatever challenge you face is the shadow side of the gift you have been blessed with.  It's one of the benefits of life coaching. So the big things blocking you can actually become the big things that you use for success. Stay with me for a moment whilst I explain this further...

"We can discover this meaning in life in three different ways: by creating a work or doing a deed; by experiencing something or encountering someone; and by the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering" 
"Everything can be taken from a man but the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way"

Finding Your Life Purpose
 Finding Your Life Purpose is something that we all have within us - although too often we let fear and uncertainty cloud our vision.

As a result, we can actually run from our life purpose and then, years later, wonder why we lack connection and fulfillment.

It's really quite simple once you know the steps to finding your life purpose and I  am always amazed at the transformation people undergo once they become aware of this.


Awareness is the key with finding your life purpose.  Just being here today, reading this post means you have been considering life purpose and what it means for you.

Increasing your awareness and understanding around finding your life purpose is what I intend to share with you today, as part of my introduction to Finding Your Life Purpose in Suburbia

You Probably Think You Know Who You Are - But do you REALLY know who you are?

Really having a deep self awareness of yourself begins with grasping simple concepts about yourself.
  • Can you name you special gifts?
  • Can you identify your strengths and accept your challenges?
  • Can you tell the difference between your ego needs and your real core essential needs?

The default setting is life is lost and distracted...

Being lost and distracted means you are flipping from one bright shiny object to the next, like a seagull on the beach, just moving from one potential tidbit to the next, without any overall vision or goal other than satisfying your hunger.

It's a here and now approach where you don't really look beyond instant satisfaction and the quick fix.  As a result, you'll feel like you are not grounded or stable or connected - anything really will do and you aren't that fussy about what you'll chase after.

It's a very bland, bleak place to be, really...

  • You are stuck in unconscious habits, patterns and cycles
  • feeling so anxiety, aimlessness, frustration, disappointment and neediness
  • Stuck believing your past determines your future
  • Hoping that the future will be better, but not really making any changes to ensure this happens
