So many of our Inspired Action Coaching clients find themselves in an uncomfortable position. They accidentally went after lifestyle thinking it was going to give them life experience. But the lifestyle ended up making their life experience less then satisfactory.
I regularly support clients through the transition from looking good to feeling good. One couple who is in the coaching program right now feels stuck. They both realize they want to contribute more, do more art, and travel. Instead they got caught up on the “keeping up with the Jones’ game” and now they are stuck. Their lifestyle has them trapped. What they really wanted was life experience.
So now they are in the process of letting go of all their attachments to the stuff, to looking good, to trying to accumulate things, etc. They are seeing that they have built their life to look good to others and look like they are successful. But they both feel empty inside.
Have you made this mistake? Have you traded lifestyle for life experience pretending like SOMEDAY it will all change? Pretending someday in the future you will have life experience and until then you will have minimal experience?
