Life Playground Newsletter - September 2009

Greetings Playgrounders....

Spring is in the air, for those of us that live in the southern hemisphere, that is and it is time for excitement, birth, renewal and for some of us out there... a time to be made redundant or get laid off!!

Two of my clients got asked to leave their jobs over the last couple of weeks. One of them had a great payout and now has the time to think about what he wants to do with his life. The other got barely enough to get her through to end of September and has a sense of urgency in finding a new "something" for her or returning back to the same industry she was in before.

They both had career change as one of their objectives for coming to life coaching

Both were keen to live the "2nd Half" of life doing something that motivated them

Now that the universe has given them a gentle nudge in that career change direction, the world of pure potential has opened up for them. From a Life Coaching perspective, we are now working on making that dream come true and both have achieved some tremendous results already.

Life Coaching Tip: A good friend of mine recently told me that he was now committing to promises rather than goals as he felt he never reached his goals but always fulfilled a promise... Something to think about!

What are some immediate steps you can take to deal with the stress of losing your job?
•Immediately work out your budget - what does it cost for you to live per month?
•From there, work out how long you can afford not to earn - this will then help you decide whether now is the time for you to pursue a career change
•Where can you make cutbacks in your spending? Found some? Implement cutbacks immediately! i.e. that gym membership you never use...
•Who are your mentors? Call them and seek advice
•Who is in your inner circle and your greater network of friends, classmates, colleagues, etc. Who of them can help you? Learn to use to use your network!

Upcoming Free Gift to Life Playground Subscribers....
In October, a new downloadable guided meditation will
be available for free to all Life Playground subscribers....

Until Next Time...
One last insight for those dealing with change... Go visit a Playground...! Get on a swing, see-saw, climbing frame... Go nuts and bring out the child like wonder within! Have some fun at this time. A night out with you best friends is another way to let your hair down... The hangover on the morning after... Ah well... You'll get over that too!

Happy Playground,
