I felt lost, confused and frustrated. I had no idea where to start.
I was caught in a career that I couldn’t get out of, and I had no idea what I wanted to do in the next stage of my life. If I had have kept going, I think I would have eventually burned out, and I dread to think what the impact would have been on my family.
I felt lost, confused and frustrated. Worst of all, I knew I had to change but I had no idea where to start.
I loved working with Nick because it gave me the opportunity to explore what I enjoyed and what excited me. What I liked most though was it allowed me to focus on my own well-being and the activities that went with that. I felt equal parts uncomfortable (as Nick challenged me) and excited for what the future held for me.
I now have a clear picture of the things that light me up, and I’ve identified the areas I want to pursue that align with my core self.
I was lost and I felt like I was missing a purpose.
After many years in IT, I found myself wanting to do something else, but I had no idea what. The biggest challenge was answering the question of what I wanted to do. My life was going in a direction I didn’t want it to go, and I had run out of answers. I was lost and I felt like I was missing a purpose. I was also allowing others to influence me rather than make my own decision.
Each session I worked with Nick, I felt I was a little bit further along the path and I constantly felt supported.
Whilst I am presently still exploring my options, I can say that I have a lot more confidence in making my own decisions in the direction I want my life to go.
Thank you, Nick.
I was struggling to find clarity on how to move forward …
Before working with Nick, I was struggling to find a way to move forward with a new enterprise due to a lack of clarity and confidence in the direction I was taking.
While working with Nick, he helped me to dig down into the more subtle parts of my character that were influencing my actions, thoughts, and behaviours that I was unaware of.
He helped shine a light on the self-limiting beliefs and ways of thinking that were holding me back and causing me to make things more complicated than they really needed to be. I was overwhelmed!
Since working with Nick, it’s been easier to find a simple and direct way forward when facing a tricky decision in my work. I feel a greater connection to my purpose and am clearer in my choices on a daily basis. It’s an incredibly powerful feeling.
I still needed to work of course, but wanted so much more from life but felt it was unobtainable… how wrong was I?
I, like most others I knew in the corporate world, was on the treadmill of life but so unaware of it that it scared me looking back. Bed to work was the order of the day and when we had kids then the pressure just mounted and we thought this was just all par for the course.
For so long I struggled through thinking this was it now but inside I knew that this just can’t be it! There’s got to be more right?
These thoughts never had time to be fully considered as work and pressure kept them out. There was no place for positive forward-thinking. Life didn’t allow this it seemed. My card was marked and that was it — my lot!
Then, I had the good fortune of meeting up with Nick through work and very quickly noticed that he had a different outlook on life. We became friends and had many deep conversations about striking a balance between work and life (in a time where businesses really only used ‘work-life balance’ as a term to tick off a social requirement but rarely lived up to it) and through these conversations over coffees, usually during our work break times, Nick helped me navigate what was a very difficult time and helped me see above the fog that made me feel there were little options other than what I was currently doing.
His calm demeanour and intellect made it easy to discuss any topic and where he never pushed an agenda, I knew I could trust him.
So, how did Nick help me out you might ask… well, put it this way, after much discussion and path-finding, Nick helped me find my purpose and drive to identify what it was that would make me happy.
I still needed to work of course but wanted so much more from life, but felt it was unobtainable… how wrong was I. Thanks to Nick, we found ourselves on an amazing journey that started in 2016 and is still going.
We moved our young family to Santiago, Chile, for two years, then Cartagena, Colombia, for 1 year, and now residing in Europe. Where next — who knows — but the point is we’re living life on our terms and loving every second.
We still have to work, and the kids need to go to school, but we found the perfect balance for us. This might not be for everyone but there is a life out there on your terms that you may not yet be living or even realise.
Thanks to Nick, we found ours.
