It’s pretty common for almost everyone, at any one point in time, to have some area of their life that they’re facing a challenge in.
If their career is going great, their home life might suck. Or, if they’ve got a fulfilling relationship, they might struggle with a tyrannical boss, annoying work mates or have a problem with keeping fit and healthy.
No-one’s perfect – but big deal. I don’t believe we’re meant to be – it’s in those ‘perceived’ imperfections that our uniqueness can be found. And, while we’re all driven towards attaining happiness and avoiding pain, the reality is, if we were ecstatically happy all of the time, we wouldn’t experience the vast range of emotions that can make life such a rich tapestry.
However, we all still need to face our challenges and hopefully, can learn to tap into a deeper reservoir within ourselves, where true strength, integrity and authenticity lie, so we can overcome them.
That’s where we run into trouble because often, we don’t have the tools or resources to know how to tackle our problems. But you don’t have to go it alone.
Maybe you’ve exhausted all your options for people to go to for advice. Maybe you just want to hear the point of view of someone who’s actually ‘been there, done that’ and found a way through it, to make it to the other side – a side where there’s hope, happiness and a kind of peace that no-one can take away.
Simply send through your question and I’ll offer whatever advice I can, based on strategies I’ve personally used in my own life to achieve a successful outcome. You might also find that other readers have gone through a similar situation and will leave comments that can help you too.
So, fire away!
Note: While it may not always be possible for me to respond to every question personally, due to time restrictions, I will certainly make a concerted effort. Also, if you submit a question, I will take it that it’s ok for me to publish it, along with my response, for the benefit of all our readers (of course, your name and any identifiable details will be removed so that you remain completely anonymous).
