If you could go back in time and have a 5 minute conversation with yourself ten years ago, what would you say?
I could go in so many directions with this but each time I think it through I fear I would end up somewhere different than I am today. I like my life, although I would like to make some changes there aren’t any so dramatic that I would change who I’m married to or where I live. So if I could go back and have a converstaion with myself I would tell me it’s OK to be a little more competitive and assertive. Those are two traits that I really don’t have right now and I would like to be better. When it comes to competition I completely shy away; I’m not sure if it’s a fear of losing or that I just really don’t care. Being assertive makes me nervous because I feel as though it makes others uncomfortable and I try really hard not to make others uncomfortable…maybe a little too much *shrugs*.
On another note: I called the references for the life coach I’m considering and both said that he helped them immensly so I think I will call him tomorrow and talk about his fee. If he can come down a little I would be willing to give it a shot and maybe through all of it I could become better with being competitive and assertive, although that’s not my main goal. The main goal is to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life and then start working towards it. Let’s hope he’s up for the challenge! ttfn
