Many people choose to let life happen to them. They feel like they have no control over the events in their life. They just respond to whatever is happening in their life. As a result, they may feel stuck or have little ambition and/or drive towards a brighter future.

Others feel like they’re living their life for other people and not themselves. Maybe they are living for their partner, their kids or … Everything they do is focused on others. Being of service to others is a beautiful gift to the world, but if you neglect yourself at the same time, overtime pieces of your soul will die. This is particularly true for women as we are raised to be caregivers and put everyone else’s needs before our own. You can be a wonderful caregiver and still find time to nurture yourself; your life will have more meaning and be more fulfilling.

In either situation, the truth is that you have a choice.

You can choose to be passive and let life happen or you can choose to create the life you want – to choose to be the creative force of your life. It’s up to you!

What Do You Want To Create

Being the creative force of your life does take some effort and self-reflection.

This is where coaching can really help people. Coaching can help you get in touch with who you are and what’s important to you. It can also help you clarify what you want to create in your life.

For self-reflection ask yourself questions like,

  • Who am I?
  • What do I like?
  • What makes me happy?

To discover things that you want to create in your life, ask yourself questions like,

  • What do I want to accomplish?
  • What do I want to have?
  • What’s my bucket list?

When you know what you want to create, then you need to take action.

Taking Action

This is where a lot of people get stuck. They have dreams and things they want in their life, but they never achieve them. It’s like the saying, “They’re all talk and no action.” You need to take some form of action towards what you want to create.

This doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If your creation will take some time to achieve, break it down into manageable steps.

“A journey of a thousand miles beings with a single step” – Chinese Proverb

Simply taking the next step and then the next step will keep moving you towards what you want. The important thing is that you JUST KEEP TAKING THE NEXT STEP, however small that may be. By doing so you are building the momentum towards what you want.

Are you the creative force of your life?

Do you want to be?

What’s your next step?
