Are you on the right path working in wellbeing?

Are you on the right path working in wellbeing?

By making the decision to work in wellbeing, whether as a therapist, yoga or mindfulness teacher, you have chosen a path of service and purpose, you are helping people make changes in their lives emotionally and physically.

What can be better then that?......... 

Working with your life's purpose gives you that feeling of joy and freedom, you are making positive changes to someone's life. I am not talking about a fleeting sense of joy but deep inner sense of knowing this is what you are here to do.  

However, like many therapists, you may be wondering where those feelings have gone or if you are really on the right path. Let me tell you of my experience before I found the world of wellbeing. I had no idea what I wanted to do, I drifted from university then one dead end job to another. In my heart I knew I was destined to help people but I had no idea how that would work out out until found wellbeing. I knew I had found my life's purpose but accumulating all this amazing knowledge was not enough. 

I was frustrated with my lack of clients, my inability to hold on to some of them - I wanted more, I wanted to help spread the word, I wanted to scream it from the top of a mountain that I had found a better way and I wanted everyone to know. 

After a year of struggling and adding in new therapies to my skill set (I mistakenly thought if I had more qualifications more people would come to me). It was pointed out to me if you keep doing the same things that you have always done nothing is going to change.

This was a light bulb moment; I needed to make myself stand out, I needed to learn some new skills that were not therapy skills, I needed to learn how to make myself stand out from the crowd, I needed to learn how to get my message across. To cut a long story short, I needed some business skills and some confidence to use them, skills that would teach me how to find my clients and talk to the ones that I had. 

As I found these skills my practice increased my stress and frustration eased and I felt more of the joy that comes with helping people.
