Life is great!

How are things going for you since completing the Live an Authentic Life course?

I hope that you are finding it easy to integrate what you’ve learnt about yourself into your life.

What changes have you made to align your life with your true self?

Some things will be easier to implement than others.

Some things will take time

If you are having difficulty, take a look at the list of changes that you decided to make.

How can you break each of these down into smaller steps?

If you are finding resistance against taking even the smallest step, break it down further

Let’s say that the step is to go on holiday. The same process that we use here will apply whatever the step is that you’re having trouble taking.

So, if the thought of actually taking that holiday is too daunting for you, maybe the first step could be to research the area that you fancy going to. And this doesn’t have to be your final decision so don’t feel pressured by this. It’s just about looking at ideas at this stage.

The steps may be as follows:

1. Write down three possible locations

2. Look up 'Tourist in France / Madrid / Australia /  ​Liverpool' - whichever town, city or country is on your list.

3. When you see somewhere that appeals to you, the next step might be :

4. Check out accommodation. This may be either to book direct if that's what you prefer or to give an idea of the type of accommodation available so that you'll be better informed when you go to the travel agents.​

​.....and so on.

The list of steps will be way less daunting when they are broken down into very small steps. When you come a cross a step that you don’t feel comfortable with, break it down further.

Maybe going into a travel agents may bring up a lot of resistance for you.

If that’s the case, break that down further.

1. Make a list of travel agents in the area.

2. Visit each one as a browser. If anyone approaches you and asks if they can help, you have the option of saying ‘Just browsing thanks’. You will probably find tat you will be happy to sit down and discuss your requirements with them but if not, you’ve got your polite decline ready and so hopefully you won’t feel the pressure about going into the shop.

The world is your oyster!

Use this process to break own your goals.

Don’t be deterred if you aren’t able to achieve everything as quickly as you’d hoped. It may be a lot to take on by yourself and so you may need some time to get used to the idea.

Well done for the steps you’ve taken so far.

Doing the course in the first place was a step in itself so you’re on the right road!

Do let me know how you are getting on!

If you need my help then you know where I am but otherwise,

have a great time discovering your inner self!
