There are several reasons why we can feel a “disconnect” at a certain age. As time passes, the dust clears, and some of our familial responsibilities fall away. We left with, “Is this all there is?” Utilizing the services of a Certified Life Coach may result in a fulfilling second lease in life for the mature adult.
It is not uncommon to find ourselves in a job or career that we just happened to land. Perhaps it just seemed to develop and before we knew it, there we were. In 2014 it was reported that 52.3% of employed persons were unhappy in their jobs. More than half!!
Furthermore, it can be challenging to find something we are excited about when we are just going through the motions of fulfilling the “shoulds” in life, (like covering bills), and there is no time or energy for the “what could be.”
Naturally, we all hunger for something that motivates us and has a purpose. The older we get, the more we want to find that “something” that matters to us and others.
For instance, we all have talents we are either born with or have acquired over time. It is our true calling to share these gifts with others. It can be an empowering and fulfilling activity and can sometimes turn into a primary or secondary source of income.
It follows that a qualified Life Coach may be able to help you maximize your potential by tapping into your inner guidance, clarifying your goals, strengthening your boundaries, helping you learn to attract what you want. Help you create self-accountability as well as adding balance to your life and preparing you to meet challenges and more importantly, to realize those challenges as gifts.
In conclusion, it is not uncommon to find ourselves in a place in later life when we are unhappy with the way things are. It can be complicated by what we think we “should” be doing to support ourselves. However, we all have a desire to perform work that is motivating to us and serves others and the planet in a positive way.
