LIFE COACH

Helping the over 50s Create a Life Less Ordinary

Dictionary meaning of ordinary: Average, cut-and-dried, every day, normal, routine, unremarkable.

Do these words sum up your life? They did for me.

Are you at a stage in your life where you are at a loss and fed up with the direction your life is heading?

Maybe in your job, career or the business you own? Where YOU feel a bit lost in your life journey, and you've been perhaps letting fate write your story instead of you.

Want to forget the ordinary...

So you’ve followed your path for the last 50 years or more. If the journey was anything like mine, there were good and bad parts. Like most, I suspect.

 

 

But let’s be honest, if life were perfect, you wouldn’t be reading this now. My guess is you want your future to be different from your past. 

 

Maybe some of these resonate with you. They did for me.

 

  • Regrets and missed opportunities.
  • Fear, anxiety and lacking confidence.
  • Playing safe, pleasing others.

 

I often say people cross my path for one of two reasons. Either they want to bring something new into their lives or leave something behind. To follow a different road.

 

Want to figure out where to start. Where you’re headed. What you need for the journey.

 

Why choose me? Well, there’s my life-coaching qualifications, of course. But more to the point, I’ve done it myself. Changed direction later in life. And it was the best move I ever made. I can help make yours. A life less ordinary.

 

A life less ordinary...

We often think of career planning as the domain of the young. Ditto pursuing exciting challenges. But it’s actually when most of life’s expected milestones have been ticked that the real fun and creative thinking can begin.

 

Truth is you have more freedom, more life experience, more time to make it happen. Now.


What is it you’re looking for?


  • Change of career or setting up your own business.
  • Turning a hobby into something bigger.
  • Maybe you want to make more money.
  • Find a new relationship. 
  • Travel the world.

 

Maybe you don’t even know what you want to do next. All you know is you don’t want ordinary. You want a different future to the one you’re staring at. And that’s ok too. In fact, that’s great. Because together, we can shape a vision full of possibilities.

 

By the time we have reached our 50s and 60s, we've come to know our-self pretty well...

We are at a stage in our life where we can look forward to greater freedom to make choices than at any other time.

 

We arrive at a point when we just feel like we have something else in us. What was once thought impossible is now possible. It’s all down to what you believe you are capable of achieving.

 

After all, you may have another forty years or more left to live; what you do with them is down to your mindset.

It's wrong to think about age defining who we are.

It's more about who we want to become...

Why is it important to think that way as we get older?

 

Because too many people think ‘I’m done. I can’t start something new. I can’t learn something new.’ And that’s absolutely not true. It doesn’t make sense from a life activity, purpose, or financial standpoint. With our current economy and the cost of living, we may still need and want to work.

 

Now in the second half of our lives, we want more, we want different, so we need to reinvent ourselves.

 

In the reinvention stage, yes, you may stop working where you have been, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to retire from working or have a purpose. In this period, it’s resetting your life priorities.

Just think about all your life skills, talents and experience you have gained. It’s about rethinking what you might want to do with those talents and how to utilise them differently.

 

And this reinvention stage doesn’t necessarily start at age sixty and end in your late sixties either, right?

 

No, it could start in your forties or your fifties. You can also be reinventing yourself in your seventies and eighties, too. The reinvention stage is really the exciting one.

Stop the press How One Man's Finally Fullfilling A Lifelong Dream: Max's Story

According to research, more than seventy per cent of our workforce are not in love with their job! In fact, quite a proportion hate what they do—many sighting boredom and burnout as two of the main culprits.

 

They wake up each day at the same time, commute the same route, work from the same office building alongside the same work colleagues each and every day. Many of them even enjoy the same coffee order each morning. Unfortunately, this repetition of the wash, spin, dry, and repeat often result in the same outcome across many older workforce members: boredom and burnout.

 

It’s no surprise that doing the same thing each day naturally results in a state of exhaustion. When Max came to me, this was precisely how he was feeling. Then, one day, he woke up and realized that he didn’t really know who he was, what he enjoyed, or what his future looked like.

 

Cont, you can read Max’s story here.

 

Whatever you want your future to be...

  • You need a point to “come from”. Not a goal to “get to.”
  • You need a tiny act of courage. Not a huge amount of faith.
  • You need to be more creative. Not unimaginative.
  • You need to ask for help. Not go it alone.
  • You need to take action. Not procrastination.
