A bit over feeling like something is missing no matter what you achieve?
Keen to end the thumb twiddling and get cracking on a more fulfilling version of life?
7 years ago if you’d asked me what my passion was, I would have made up some bollocks that would segue into telling you that I have an architecture degree so that you’d know I was a practical, intelligent person, not a stupid blonde.
I would have wanted you to think I was intelligent, because that was how I’d divert you from realising that I had no idea who I was and I had no particular passion for anything.
In its place was a facade of over-thinking, people-pleasing, and trying to fit into a mould of the person I thought I should be.
I felt lost, like a complete failure - other people seemed to know what they wanted from life, why didn’t I?
In a moment of unexpected clarity as I walked across the architecture campus in Dublin, my gut instinct announced its opinion on my chosen career.
I took this profound piece of wisdom on board, and a few panicky nights later I had quit architecture and zoomed off to travel again, lost, confused, and feeling guilty as all hell.
Eventually by way of a million zigs and 2 million zags, following only my curiosity, I stumbled across something that would change my life forever. Mindfulness.
I’d read mindfulness & neuroplasticity books til late at night and rave about it to anyone who’d listen.
Cut to a few years and a whole lot of skipped-details later, Project Self was born, teaching mindfulness to indecisive overachievers who raise an eyebrow at mindfulness.
After coaching hundreds of clients over the last few years,
feeling lost in successful careers that didn’t fulfil them as much as they’d expected, and wishing they could find their passion so they’d stop procrastinating their life away in a fog of indecision.
And my favourite -
By the time they work with me, my clients have usually tried what I call:
Just try to love yourself more
Follow your bliss, do more of what excites you
Follow other common fluffy passion-finding advice
End up exactly where they started:
The truth is that the clues to our passion are everywhere, but if we don’t know what we’re looking for, we’ll blindly steamroll over all the clues en route to finding the one elusive passion that we can do as a career for the rest of our lives.
Instead we need to start paying attention to the things that make us curious, even if they don’t obviously represent a viable career option.
If you’re unsure what makes you curious and excited, learning your values will narrow down where to start.
The truth is, we often SUCK at our passions to start with, so we throw in the towel too early and miss out on another clue. If we focus on all the money and time we think we’ll have to spend on following our passion, we won’t follow our curiosities, and without following our curiosities, we’ll miss out on more clues.
Instead of trying to find out how we can make our passion the central focus of our life, we can take one mundane activity that we do routinely (Facebook scrolling?) and replace it with something that we’re really curious about and see where it leads us.
The truth is that our mind will ALWAYS try to prevent us from social isolation and humiliation. It will continue to create a shitload of fear every time we try to step outside our comfort zone and do something that we’re not yet confident at.
This lack of confidence needlessly holds so many of us back from creating a life we want.
Unless we’re aware of what’s happening, the fear will likely have us running back to the safety of our comfort zone, and our passions and curiosities will remain unexplored.
Instead we need to get really clear on the identity that we’re living within and the stories we’re telling ourselves, so that we can get free from them and try things out EVEN THOUGH we might feel fearful and useless.
Having realised that so many of my clients were struggling to find their passion and feeling really low about it, I got to work developing a solution.
I looked back at my own messy path to fulfilment and passion, narrowed down the many mistakes I’d made, and looked at how I could have short-cutted a lot of the crap. I worked backwards to formulate a framework that would help my clients get clearer on their direction and create action plans for finding their passion so that they wouldn't waste as many years flailing as I did.
I tested this framework on my 1-1 and group coaching clients, and was amazed at how much clarity and excitement they got out of it, and how quickly it changed things for them.
And now having realised that this could benefit so many more people than I can work with 1-1, I’ve made it into an online program! This system is...
...so that you can wake up with a grin (even on a Monday) AND be that charismatic person who inspires others with your zingy-ness.
If any of these things do NOT happen for you, or if you're unsatisfied with the program for any reason (including if you sense any rainbow-and-butterfly-bollocksness),
just shoot me an email with why you’re dissatisfied within 30 days of your purchase and I’ll give you all your money back. If you’re not happy, I’m not happy.
Overachievers who are fed up with feeling like something is missing & keen to quit thumb twiddling and take action to live a more fulfilling life
People who are happy with thumb twiddling and lack of passion, who aren’t too phased by whether or not they’re fulfilled and therefore are not willing to take any action.
Month 1: dabbles / has no sense of direction / gets overwhelmed / procrastinates
Month 6: dabbles / has no sense of direction / feels lazy / procrastinates a bit extra
Month 12: dabbles / feels more lost than ever / loses confidence / procrastinates ---> Ends up exactly where they started, a bit more confused.
Month 1: Gets stuck into the course. Gets inspired. Starts to rearrange parts of life to get back on track and add more fulfilment to their everyday life. Feels energised that they finally took action.
Month 6: Feeling fulfilled in everyday activities, narrowing down direction even more, confidence grows as they realise how much more on track they feel since 6 months ago.
Month 12: Has found multiple passions along the journey, is enjoying day to day life and is making decisions with confidence using their highly tuned values. Feels sure of their direction and gives themselves a high five
Psst - 129 USD is equivalent to the 4 blocks of Pana Chocolate and 4 bottles of wine you may or may not drink in the next couple of months while pondering the meaning of life and feeling mildly annoyed with yourself for never taking action and instead looking for fulfilment in chocolate. Which totally works, for the moment you're eating it. Or join us in the program, get directionised, and become excited and fulfilled by life again so that you completely forget about whether or not there's chocolate mousse in the fridge.
Alsoooo it’s less than the price of a 50 minute 1-1 session with me in which we’d cover only 1/8th of the content of this course.
I’ll walk you step by step through the process of getting clear on what REALLY matters to you, show how to bring more fulfilment into your everyday life so you can wake up feeling excited and energised, and help you create a personal framework that you can use to feel confident that you’re making the right decisions for you.
And if you’re unsatisfied with the program, shoot me an email to let me know why you’re dissatisfied within 30 days of your purchase and I’ll return 100% of your money - if you’re not happy, I’m not happy.
