Bridging The Gap From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be. #003

The journey to Taking Back Your Life often starts with one asking the question "how do I Bridge The Gap between where I am now and where I actually WANT to be."

Maybe you’re on the path of what you thought would be your dream job, only to find out that it isn’t so dreamy.

Maybe you have secret dreams that you’ve tucked away for safekeeping that you'll get to 'one day'.

Maybe you're going along in life, seemingly fine, but then one day, out of the blue, you start to feel a sense of regret, disappointment, sadness, frustration or even curiosity.

Suddenly you realize, or maybe it has been nagging at you for a while, that although your life is good, maybe even great, it isn’t the life you truly want.

Maybe you always dreamt of traveling and have yet to leave the state.

Maybe you always wanted to be an author and haven’t written one word, unless you count to do lists and grocery lists.

Maybe you always thought you would be a public speaker but the closest you get to that now is yelling for your kid across the parking lot.

Or maybe you love cooking and always wanted to own your own restaurant but you feel more like a short order cook at Denny’s.

If any of these resonate with you, or if you can think of similar “dreams or goals” that float off in the distance, then I will submit that you may not be living the life you really want or could be living.

And you're not alone. Millions of people have or may wake up one day and realize they are living a life that although it may be pretty good, even great by some standards, isn't the life they wanted. It doesn't leave them feeling fulfilled.

If you find yourself in relationships that frustrate you, drain you or leave you feeling like a benched ball player;

If you find yourself at a job that sucks the life out of you, or doesn’t challenge you, or makes you feel like you're always in need of a vacation;

If you find yourself making excuses for not doing the things you want to do;

If you crawl into or out of bed more often than not feeling a sense of dread or feeling defeated you're probably not living your best life.

When I first started to realize, many years ago, that my life was not fully mine, I had no idea why, or for that matter, what I should or could do to take it back.

I only knew that if I kept going the way I was, people pleasing, pushing my own needs, feelings and desires aside, I would not be living MY life, but rather a life expected of me or at best, driven by fear and the opinions and expectations of others.

Have you ever felt like that?

Like you're going through the motions?

Like you’re watching your life pass you by?

That's why put together this podcast episode. To help you finally get some clarity around where you are and where you want to be.

And to let you know that it is NOT selfish to want a life that excites you and fills you up.

On this episode I dig into the question:

How do I bridge the gap from where I am to where I want to be in life?

  • Maybe you feel like it's selfish to chase your goals.
