Have you ever been in a place in your life where things aren’t the way you want them to be, but you have no idea what to do next? You throw ideas round, but mostly all you see are the reasons why it’s impossible to make changes.
I found myself there nearly 18 months ago. I wasn’t enjoying my job and although I applied for others, nothing came through. After grumbling about my situation for a while, I decided that instead of focusing on a job change, I’d make other changes in my life. I would focus on doing more of the things I loved. So I created this website Challenging Life Creating and committed to writing a blog each week.
After a few months of writing weekly posts, I realized that writing about the things I believed in, made me feel alive and was something I wanted to do more of. At about the same time, I stumbled over an online writing program called Self Publishing School which takes you through the process of writing and self-publishing a book on Amazon. I tried hard to ignore the deep desire I felt to write a book, after all, what did I actually have to say. But I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t give it a go. So in September last year, I signed up, created a mind-map of what I wanted to say and started writing.
I’m so excited that a long-held dream of mine is actually coming true. My book SUPERHERO ME: How to Feel Great about Yourself and Make the World a Better Place will be published on Amazon on 28th August – exactly one month away.
During the next week I’ll invite people to join my launch team to help me promote my book. when it’s launched. Members of the launch team will get an early free PDF of my book so they can read it and provide an honest review on Amazon once it’s launched. Reviews are the drivers that push books up the Amazon rankings and get them out to the right people. For the first three days on Amazon, my book will be free and I’ll be asking my launch team to tell others on their social media networks that it’s available,. So if you’re interested in joining my launch team or getting a free kindle copy of my book, CLICK HERE and you can sign up to get more information.
In addition to writing my book, I’ve started a life and career coaching business that is skype-based. My focus is on helping people transition through challenges they face. For a limited time only, I’m offering four free 45 minutes coaching sessions to anyone who is interested. You can find out about that offer on my new website called Unique and Thriving.
I’ve decided to set up a new website because my focus has changed. Unique and Thriving is better able to promote my life coaching practice and my books – yes, I’ve started writing book number 2 already. It’s going to be very different from Superhero Me.
Writing blog posts for Challenging Life Creating gave me the direction in my life I needed in the past eighteen months but now it’s time to close it down. From now on I’ll be posting my weekly blog on Unique and Thriving.
Thank you to everyone for reading and commenting on the posts I’ve written for Challenging Life Creating. Your support has given me the confidence I needed to explore these new directions in my life. I really hope you will continue to follow me on Unique and Thriving.
So if you have feel frustrated in your life, try something new that interests you, you never know where it will take you. It might take you somewhere you never could have imagined.
