Advance In Your Career – A Case Study – Shawn’s Journey from Stagnation to FulfilmentReal name of my client not disclosed due to confidentiality reasons

My coaching outcome was understanding that I have a choice. Letting go of my old stories, distractions, and managing stress. Realising I can create a new path was big for me. I was able to connect with my strengths. Now, I am growing into a more daring version of myself and moving in the direction of my vision of setting up my start-up company – Shawn D

Bit of a Background:

When I first met Shawn, his go-to phrase was “I don’t have a choice, I have to…” It really showed how he felt trapped and lacking in enthusiasm for life. He felt like he had to keep going without any other options.

Challenges Hindering Shawn:

Through our sessions, Shawn got aware of  the barriers hindering his progress- 

 a lack of clarity, self-doubt, and a disconnect from his true passions and purpose. These obstacles left him feeling off-balance and low in confidence, preventing him from pursuing his long-held dream.

The Ah Ha Moment – Turning Point in Shawn’s Life:

Our collaboration sparked an “ah ha” moment when he realised that he wasn’t truly living, he wasn’t enjoying what he was doing, the motivation and the energy to go further was diminishing –  he was merely surviving. 

This revelation sparked a newfound determination to break free from his stagnant state and pursue a life aligned with his passions and purpose.

This was his turning point. Recognizing that he couldn’t ignore his calling any longer, Shawn made a bold decision to leave his lucrative city job behind.

With a fresh perspective, Shawn rediscovered the blueprint of his long-held dream, which had been buried and forgotten over time.
