I am thrilled to share some good news. After two years of intensive study in graduate school, I completed my research dissertation for an MSc. in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. Yay!!
There were definitely days when I felt like pulling my hair out and even having a tantrum because my plate was not only full, it was absolutely bursting.
I was juggling my business, working with amazing clients to unlock their full potential, taking care of family, helping my daughter with her business, trying to have a quality life, and meeting the demands of school all at once.
I swear chocolates kept me going.
When I started the journey, I knew that it would be rigorous and full steam ahead. As a life-long learner, I know that it was all worth it in the end.
The field of positive psychology and coaching psychology has always interested me. In fact, a deeply held passion of mine for the past decade was to take a deeper dive and study both topics. So, when the opportunity came along to study both fields in combination, I could not say no.
As the saying goes “timing is everything.”
What about you? Is there something that you dream of, but somehow stopped yourself from moving forward?
IF you have cherished a dream and have held it in the deepest recesses of your heart and soul, but have not started it, or discounted it as “no big deal”, I am living proof that you CAN still make it a reality at any stage and phase of your life.
Even if you have said to yourself, “I’m too old” or “my time has passed” or “they can do it, but I can’t”, you can still START.
Keep in mind that the first step to any BIG goal or dream is simply to start from wherever you are because each day that you take action, you are closing the gap from where you started from to where you want to be.
If you or someone you know is a 2020 graduate, I am extending my hearty CONGRATULATIONS on an impressive milestone!
And if you are a coach or thinking of becoming one, watch this space for ways to take your practice, skills and business to the next level.
Cheers to your success!
