When Life Gets Hard

I have made this commitment to writing here – in my blog – twice a week.  In the first post of the week – I’ll write about my progress with food and my weight.  In my second post – I’ll write a coaching piece – something to inspire action.  

Well – this has been a challenging week for me.  About midweek I got some news that pulled the rug out from under me, so to speak.  And I’m still reeling.  And I’m wondering – how can I write something inspiring from this place?  I don’t feel – well much of anything even now.  So that is what I’m going to write about.  What do when this happens.

I believe we are all designed for, made to do certain things.  One of the big challenges is figuring out what that is.  The next challenge is once you know – actually doing it.  And what do you do when other circumstances intervene to destabilize you? 

You keep going.  You remember – this is what I am meant to do, this is MY path.  The challenges, the saddening or destabilizing experiences don’t CHANGE that.  So for today – I may feel sad, a bit out of control, but I can still take action toward the things I am built to do.  I know  my goals.  I know what I am working toward.  I know who I am.  None of that is changed – it is just more difficult right now.  But I can take another step, and another step.  I can keep going.  And that will lead me to a place of stability once again.  I can’t control everything, but I can make those choices.  I can take just one more step.

Client Stories

Lori took my old, tired, out of date resume and transformed it into a resume which got results.  In transitioning from owning a business back to the corporate world, Lori asked the tough questions to dig out all the relevant skills and accomplishments which would catch the eye of a potential employer.   One of the first employers to receive my new resume and customized cover letter (created by Lori) called me for a phone interview, followed by a face to face meeting, and finally offered me a job twenty-four hours after the interview.  I'm convinced I would not have even been able to get my foot in the door without my new resume created by Lori.  As I told my wife, retrospectively, spending the money to work with Lori was well worth it.
