I get it. Man, do I get it. You did everything you were supposed to, right? So why aren’t you happy yet?
Yeah. Please check all that apply:
___ I graduated high school.
___ I went to college.
___ I got a job.
___ I got a serious boyfriend/girlfriend.
___ I pay my own rent/my own bills/my own everything.
___ I thought being a grownup meant freedom and fun.
___ I was wrong. So wrong.
Coaching can help. For real.
Here’s the deal:
You’re miserable because you are doing what you’re supposed to do.
And because you’re not doing what you want to do.
Not even a little bit.
I know, you do “fun”on Saturday night…but is that what you really want? Or is that what makes you forget Monday to Friday?
Here’s the deal.
Once you aged out of Barbie and Power Rangers, everybody stopped saying, “You can be whatever you want!”
School stopped giving you recess and story time and snack.
Life stopped being about fun, and started being about…well, doing what you’re supposed to do.
You followed the rules, and now you’re here. Sigh.
But seriously: coaching can help.
Somewhere in your soul there’s a tiny glowing ball of what you want to do. But you ignore it, because sheeoot, you’ve got to pay this rent! This car payment! This bar tab!
And besides, nobody wants to hear about your hopes and dreams, do they?
Well, yeah. I do. Because hopes and dreams? That’s the good stuff in life. That’s the really real.
And once you start talking about those hopes and dreams, they pop up in 3-D, vivid as they were back in Barbie days. Vivider.
Once you realize you can go get ’em–you can start gettin’em today–suddenly, that bar tab starts shrinking. And your Friday smile starts showing up on Monday. And before you know it, you’re looking on Amazon for some cheesy Life is Good t-shirts. Alllriiiight.
