Overview of Your Journey to Retire in a Life You'd Love

You have already taken a huge step is to choose to look for something better than you're currently living! You are saying you are open to other possibilities, options which had not previously been considered or explored. Congratulations on having taken the hardest step already!

This short program gives a great lead into a more fulfilling life you can enjoy and feel good! The step-by-step path makes it easy to clarify what you want and how to get there.

I'm Heather and together we will explore ways to get to the life you would love to live.

  • In the first module you will see more clearly what the life you’d love to live includes.
  • The second module explores the resources that you already have to support you taking steps towards living that life.
  • The third module provides a picture of where you are now and leads straight to the fourth module developing your path to move from ‘here to there’ so you can start to live the life you’d love soonest.

For each module there is a template to fill in with your unique collection of ideas/ notes/ thoughts/ pictures – however you record your thoughts most comfortably.

I used a star for the template. Stars have guided travellers throughout human history. Even the epic voyages our ancestors took in boats powered by sails that lasted months. Or to cross a continent, the stars guided them to their destination and return. So a star guide seemed appropriate as we set out on this journey.

Over the 4 modules these records create a picture for you of the life you'd love and how to get there.

To get the most from this short program, 

  • Download the template for each module. 
  • Run the short video through completely once. 
  • Then re-run the video and stop after each question to fill in the template.

Let your thoughts flow onto your record - thoughts at the top of mind that flow easily, quickly, that you already know, so you're simply recording them. The template will blend them into your unique picture.

I find it most helpful to then go do something else and let my sub-conscious mind bubble up further thoughts and associations. Record any of these too. The picture becomes more detailed, clearer.

Take as long as you want with each step in this program. Or return to any part as often as you wish. I find this process helps me see from other perspectives, as though through a different window.

This picture of the life you’d love to live is a powerful guide. For it to be of most benefit, put it somewhere where you can see it often to help you remember what is important to you.

I put these important things on the fridge where I see them frequently. Where works best for you?

So, let’s begin - see you in the next video!

Instructor Biography

Heather Powell, Life coach and guide

Hello and welcome to my unfolding story!

Why have I [Heather] created these programs?

Many years ago, when my life changed drastically, the foundations of my understanding about ‘life the Universe and all that’ were seriously challenged. So I began a journey searching for meaning, ‘what life is about’, and what I was here for.

I began by exploring Meditation and traditional Yoga – found them so helpful during that distressing time that I learnt to teach these fantastic practices – so great for easing stress and balancing body, mind and spirit.

Yet, it wasn’t enough so, over years, I explored paths of Personal Development, Positive Psychology, Counselling, Coaching, and assorted modalities. Those which I found helpful, valuable, are now in my ‘tool-kit’.

As I look back, the journey has taken twists and turns through different decades of my life. We moved to different cities and even a new country. Kids grew up. Throughout, I see I followed my own unique path – and the fun part is that those wonderful people sharing this journey, walking beside me, are also on their own unique paths!

This journey I now call ‘my life’ and the more I explore and understand, the better my life has become - I love this journey!

At times of change in my life, when a phase ended, I have returned to this tool-kit to re-evaluate, find which fork in the road to choose. As I look back, each time I have chosen a different path, life has got even better – it is wonderful 20/20 hind-sight!

The unique collection of skills and perspectives which serve me and others so well, I now can make available to benefit you through these online courses. What is taking your interest now?
