Time For Us All to Come Out of Recession

The good news was announced a couple of weeks ago, - the UK is coming out of recession! I think that this is also a good time to take stock and work out what we want now that the feeling of fear, contraction and stuck-ness has begun to lift.

It is said that once it is official that the economy is turning round it takes 6 months to really show up in our lives. In turn that probably means that it takes us 6 months to let go a little and start asking what new things we want in our lives.

Economic recession literally stops all growth - and that means personal growth too. I have noticed in the last few years that everyone has been in a 'wait and see' holding pattern. Many of the people I have spoken to about coaching and making changes in their life have been really wanting to take that jump but the fear that has been bombarding us through the negative stories has held many back.

Good news is that now we have officially turned the corner, energetically everything shifts. I have noticed a much higher rate of inquiries for coaching and retreats in the last two weeks.

So I invite you, rather than waiting 6 months to get going with the crowd, be ahead of them. Take some time to sit down and think what have I been putting off for the last five years? What has gone on hold? For some it might be a career move, starting their own business, a house move, or even starting a family. For others it might be investing in themselves, either personally or professionally. What has all this contraction stopped you doing with your life? Five yeas of stuck-ness is enough! What are you going to let go of and how are you going to start living your life on full power?

And don't just think about it- make a plan of how you can begin to bring these things into your life now.

Just know that now is the time that you can start looking forward, you can start not just thinking about what would be nice, but actually doing it, being it or having it. Onwards and upwards!
