Hey Beautiful Soul!
I'm Clara. Life Strategist & Certified Health Coach.
Have you noticed? When you do things you're naturally good at… you become completely absorbed by what you do? You become ultra-focused, you're totally "in the zone" and you completely lose track of time?
This is what psychologists mean when they say you're in 'flow'.
On the contrary, when you're doing a job you hate, studying a major just to please a parent, or living life that's inconsistent to who you really are, you feel a sense of dread. Your stomach tightens. You become miserable. You feel drained. You get sick all the time. Opportunities don't come your way. And at some point you may realize, as hard as you try, you won't get very far at all.
That's because that's not where your talent lies! You're not living true to who you really are! You're not harnessing your strengths, and not using your gifts on a daily basis.
Instead, you're living a LI(f)E based on fear, pleasing others, and what your ego's perception on who you SHOULD BE.
DID YOU KNOW: the Top #1 regret of the dying* is: "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life that's true to myself, not the life others expected of me"?
This breaks my heart. Because this means, many people spend their entire lives denying or suppressing who they really are just to please someone else (that's insane!). So they could keep peace with their parents, their spouses, and their loved ones. So they could get that inheritance. So they could feel safe from criticism, other people's judgments and negative opinions.
As a result, they end up living a life based on what other's think is best for them. They end up living OTHER PEOPLE'S version of 'success' (not theirs).
But not you. I refuse to let you look back on your best years, tainted with regret.
When we live a life expressing our talents in service to humanity, we live in flow and we naturally become successful effortlessly.
