I believe that everybody should wake up each day to a life they love.
I believe that everyone is capable of creating this life for themselves.
But sometimes, it isn’t easy to make the necessary changes to bring about the life you love. The minutiae of everyday life gets in the way, you don’t know where to start, and before you know it the year is over, you're tired and still on the same treadmill wondering where the time has gone.
Seven steps to creating a life you love will help you get off the treadmill, get your power and energy back and go after the things you want.
I have used these steps in my own life, with great success, and now I am sharing them with you. Each step is introduced with a video or text explanation, and includes downloadable worksheets for you to complete. The more time you spend completing the exercises in each step, the more you will get out of the course.
In each step, we will look at the following areas:
Seven steps to creating a life you love will leave you with the skills and knowledge to implement change in your life at any given time. You will be able to take the exercises with you through life, and come back to them again and again each time you want to set a new goal for yourself.
Before you begin to make changes in your life it is good to know where you are starting from. The Wheel of Life exercise is a great way to get a visual representation of how you feel about each area of your life.
At the end of this section you will have identified which areas of your life are great, and which need a bit of improvement.
A follow-on exercise from The Wheel of Life. Now that you have giving each area of your life a ranking, it is time to dig deep and reflect on why you feel that way. This exercise is designed to give you more clarity on what is good, and not so good, in your life right now.
We have already done the work behind what you want to achieve and why, now it is time to set your goals. Setting powerful goals is one of the secrets of success. Take your time with this section and make sure that you create goals that follow my seven golden rules.
At the end of this section, you will be able to set inspiring, powerful goals for yourself.
Having a powerful goal to work towards is one thing, but you need to have a plan as to how you will achieve it. In this lecture we will discuss setting action steps, and how reviewing these actions on a regular basis is key to achieving your goals.
At the end of this section you will have set yourself a schedule to reviewing and revising your actions on a regular basis.
Positivity breeds positivity. When you begin to focus on the good things in your life, you begin to attract more good into your life—sounds crazy but it's true! This exercise is designed to help you develop a gratitude practise.
It's one thing to set a goal, it's another thing to tell people about it. Telling people about your goals has the effect of making them real. This exercise will help you determine who you are going to announce your journey to.
This section is about getting the vision for yourself in place. Creating a vision board or writing a vision piece that you look at on a daily basis helps to keep you motivated as you work toward your goals. So get your creative hat on and have fun as you put your vision together!
It is important to acknowledge all the work you are doing to reach your goals—you deserve to reward yourself! You should be so proud of yourself for everything you have achieved. How will you celebrate?
Hi there, my name is Tanya and I am a life coach, writer and speaker who helps people transform their lives from mundane to marvellous.
For most of my life I felt the pull between what I thought I should be doing (living the conventional life of a 9–5 job, husband, kids and house in the outer-suburbs) with what I really wanted to be doing (being my own boss, creating content that empowered others, flexibility with where and when I worked, the ability to travel on a whim, collecting experiences rather than things).
There were a few key things that stopped me from taking the leap from the conventional to the unconventional:
// Not-knowing what it was I wanted to do
// Doubt in my own abilities
// Fear of what everyone would think if I went off and did my own thing
I could have stayed on the conventional life path, but deep down I knew it wasn’t for me. So I worked on overcoming my confusion, doubts and fears.
Then one day, I decided to ‘feel the fear but do it anyway’.
// I quit my nice, safe job in publishing
// I went full-time in my coaching business
// I packed up my things and went digital nomad-ing
I now help people who are tired of the status quo gain the clarity and confidence they need to live an unconventional life.
I am a trained life coach (Beautiful You Coaching Academy), with other qualifications including a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations, Graduate Diploma in Publishing and Editing, and Master of Communication (all from RMIT).
But more than that, I am a beach-loving, ukulele-playing yogi, who has a not-so-secret interest in astrology. When I’m not exploring the world, you can find me in Melbourne, Australia.
