Are you at that stage in life when everything is supposed to be great?
Yet things aren’t great, instead, you find yourself constantly saying, ” Something is just not right with my life… I thought there would be something more…” Like so many others you feel like something is missing in your life, you just don’t know what.
Every day you are walking around with a nagging restlessness inside wondering if you’re doing the right thing, or if you really ought to be doing something else to be happy and living a good life.
“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation” Henry David Thoreau
So what is missing in your life? So many of my life coaching clients tell me that something is missing from theirs and when I ask them what it is they say “I don’t know, I can’t put my finger on it, I just know something is missing.” Some say that life is unfair, others that they have far too many commitments and no time for themselves, whilst others say life’s not meant to be great.
So I say again, what is missing from your life?
How can you discover what it is?
Basically, we spend most of our adult life suppressing our feelings, hiding our emotions, ignoring our disappointments. We also spend our time being busy, way too busy to find the time to contemplate such an important question.
In looking for an answer to the question “what is missing from your life?” your mind just needs to be quiet and contemplate, think about, wonder.
As a life coach my job is to get you thinking. I’m not here to give you all the answers, because what is applicable for one individual is not necessary right for another. What I want to get you to do is give yourself time to think for yourself, reflect, and consider what it will take to get you excited and happy about your life once again.
I assure you that the answer is not working harder, searching for a new job, leaving your marriage, packing your rucksack selling off your life’s possessions and travel the world. Neither should you try to escape through drugs, alcohol, or other dreadful choices.
“Working longer hours doesn’t work. The distractions you try don’t last long. Accepting mediocrity is accepting unhappiness You have to address the true source of your unrest.
What you will find works is discovering your sense of purpose and direction, doing activities that you truly care about in your life. So give yourself some time to find a meaning for your life, and then you will know what is missing in your life, and it won’t be missing anymore.
