Hello YOU! And welcome. My name is Annick, I’m a Transformational Life and Business Coach and author.
Why don’t you sit down comfortably, roll your shoulders and take a deep breath? The world can wait for a couple of minutes while you read this. Now is YOUR time.
Let me ask you something…
Do you sometimes feel like you’ve got everything sorted out, that you’re doing quite well, you’ve got a good job, you live in a nice place, you’ve got good friends, you even look good, but still it feels like there is something missing?
Do you sometimes have a feeling of uneasiness that creeps in and you don’t know why, or how to make it go away, but you try your best: you work harder, you meet up with friends, you try and get the house cleaner or tidier, you throw away some old stuff, buy new stuff, get a new haircut, learn to cook a new dish, get a massage, a pedicure, a manicure, but the feeling never leaves for good?
You always need to pour in more time, more work, more attention, more prettiness, more seriousness, always more of something in your life, but can never sit back long enough before you have to get up and top it up again? (There must be a leak somewhere!)
I used to be like that. I used to own my own retail business. I got free Italian leather bags and shoes (a woman’s dream come true!), I ran three shops, met people from all around the world, drove a lot, spent a lot of time on the phone, became a ninja at problem solving, but life felt more like being on a treadmill than anything else.
I felt good about myself as long as I kept running. Sometimes I would run and run until my legs collapsed and I would be thrown off the treadmill in the most ridiculous way, straight into darkness. The pain and frustration of feeling like a failure, the toxic relationships and self-sabotage, I would try to numb it all with alcohol but all it did was bring more guilt and shame to the dance. I was a mess.
The A-HA moment…
I was tired of living a double life, alternating between the wild party girl screwing things up and the ever busy entrepreneur trying to make her dreams come true.
A few years ago, I woke up in my bed, hungover, with barely any recollection of the night before. I felt terrible and I wanted to hide, because it wasn’t the first time. Why did I keep doing this to myself? And how did that serve me?
I made an empowered choice. I decided to take my life back and do what it takes to turn it around and stop letting it be driven by my destructive behaviours and self-sabotage. I realised that they only served to reinforce that belief that I wasn’t good enough, that I didn’t deserve to be loved and valued.
I decided to change that broken record that seemed to be playing in the back of my mind, stand up and take control back. I rolled up my sleeves and said YES to building a new life.
You can read more about it in my book Soul Superstar: Stories from My Sober Heart.
What did I do?
I rolled up my sleeves and decided to clean things up. Metaphorically. I dug deep and explored my inner world. It wasn’t always easy, but I consistently kept working on myself, using the tools that I had been taught in my coaching training, and coming up with new ones along the way.
I stepped on that journey and no matter what, I didn’t quit. When things got hard, I searched my toolbox for a solution, and I kept going. I knew there was no other way.
I chose to believe that I could make it. And I want the same for you. I want you to realise how powerful you are. That you are NOT flawed, unworthy, or undeserving of love, respect, success or happiness.
And I commit to teaching you the tools and techniques and practices that will get you there.
Because you were born with a gift, and it’s time you start using it.
It’s time you start building the life of your dreams and I will help you get there.
