As the wife of a CEO Sonia knew what it’s like to have people think your life is easier than it really is. Too many times she has seen the look that says:
“What do you have to complain about?
I mean, aren’t you married to a CEO?” You have it all, right?
But to Sonia, it surely didn’t FEEL that way.
When Sonia came to me for coaching she was a bit lost, overwhelmed, confused, unclear, and wondering what she was really here for.
Sure, her life looked great on paper.
Former Marketing Director at a big International firm in NY, Sonia was highly-educated, spoke several languages and has traveled the whole world.
She followed her husband through several corporate moves, constantly adapting to a multitude of challenges, changes, and his busy schedule.
And while Sonia was grateful for her husband’s dedication and hard work and all the support, she couldn’t help but ask yourself:
’When did his dreams replace mine?’ Do I even know what my passions are anymore?
There had to be something.
She just wanted to feel like she is making an impact in this world doing the things that make her come alive.
And, sure, trotting the globe may sound glamorous, but it was also exhausting, hand-in-hand with the extras of affluence and busy social life.
Sonia was taking care of the family (they had 2 children), supporting her husband in every way. She was the perfect corporate wife. Supportive. Elegant. Adaptable to any situation.
But meanwhile, it felt like her aspirations and dreams were put on hold.
The worst thing would be to leave all of her potential unfulfilled.
She knew it. I knew it.
As her coach I knew she was ready to take a deep look, to clear out the old and let in the TRUE.
And this is exactly what we did.
- Evaluate “The NOW”.
We started by pressing pause and “decomposing” her life, working together on HER Desires (not her family’s or societies’), holistically looking at all areas: from career and financial desires to relationships to parenting, as well as physical, mental, and emotional health.
- Identify the Blockages: What’s in the Way?
We uncovered limiting beliefs, unconscious patterns, and mental blockages that kept her from moving forward. (Basically all the clutter, the beliefs and practice that held her back to become that best version of herself and to follow her dreams.)
- DO the Work of Rewiring your Brain and Processing her emotions. Sonia did the thought work and was able to reconnect to her Essence, to her truest self, and make decisions from that place. Decisions that served her and helped her follow through and go after her dreams.
- Design The FUTURE.
We designed the exact steps and every-day strategies & behaviors she needed to implement to create the life she truly loved. Every single day. Hint: Self-care and conscious ME-time were a big part of the equation.
It absolutely is. But it also requires DOING THE WORK: To show up for yourself, to manage your brain and to process your emotions, and most importantly to take action without indulging in overwhelm or confusion.
Today Sonia has started her business as a High-end Jewelry Designer, which was a childhood dream, she never pursued. She is still traveling the world with her husband, her family… and also without them.
Most importantly SHE FEELS GOOD about her life.
And of course, there are up and downs, failures and negative emotions.
But she is deeply connected to her purpose and knows how to deal with “all of it” and move forward anyway. She feels complete.
Imagine for a moment how your life would be different if you were to believe that you are actually ENOUGH right here right now? Living in the NOW and following your purpose.
It is liberating and empowering to just authentically be yourself with no makeup, to step into my power and connection, and receive the gifts of life without any judgment or guilt. To do the thing you love, every single day.
