What do you really want?

It seems as a very easy question, yet people tend to have a problem with it…

When I ask as a coach to my coachees: “What it is you really want?”, people freeze.  Their faces become tense and the process of intense thinking starts. Some do not even understand the question. They need a proper instruction and explanation of it. Once they realise the meaning of it, they become defensive and angry:

* “What a stupid question?” * “What do you want from me?” * “Why are you asking that?” * “How should I know?” * “I want what my family/friends/boss wants”

Is that last one really your wish? Or you are so afraid of thinking and dreaming for yourself that you hide behind others to have excuse for not doing anything in your life and for yourself. Is that the excuse for keeping the complains regarding your own life?

“What do you really want?” – This simple question is crucial in daily life. If you do not really know what you want, what your dreams are, it is very difficult to create your life and to get something from it.

Of course sometimes one tends to go whenever life will bring him/her. Though is it what most of us want?

Sometimes you have a desire, yet all: “I must”, “I have to”, “What others will say about it?”, “I cannot really do it”; cause that you even do not dare to dream any further. And you forget about it. You suppress it deep inside you. This is not a solution. Of course not all dreams are able to become true. Yet simple having a dream make us happier and ready for an action.

When you have a dream, you have a goal. When you have a goal you become proactive. When you are proactive strange, unexpected and good things happens around you and your life is more creative and more attractive. Than the fact if you will reach a goal / the dream does not matter anymore as your life is meaningful already. When you know what you want, it is much easier to ask for help. It is much easier to plan and go for it.

In professional life also, if you know what you want / who you wanna be, the focus on it brings the effects faster.

So – what do you really want?

What to write…

So many people write these days. So many written and / or visual content around us.

Do I wish to share things with the audience…? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. However, since I could go back with my memories I was always writing a diary, inspired by some books by Lucy Maud Montgomery. My very first paid job was a review of a book by Margit Sandemo. Later I had started with a blog, which due to some life circumstances I stopped for now. Though it is still at the back of my mind, that I wish to go back and continue creative, positive and stress relief process of writing. I am not a writer. I make the mistakes. Yet, I just love to share what is on my mind.

I’ve recently seen LinkedIn info about this Publishing possibility and though: ”Lets give it a try, why not”.

Before becoming a mother, I was always admiring other mothers who in order to be able to take care of their children, created, started and opened a new business. I always knew that in case I will be a mom I would stay with my child. I did not know that my creativity and willingness to be still financially independent will make me think beyond what I used to know and do.

Few years back I became a coach in order to be independent in what and how I wish to do things. At the same time, discovering coaching made me realised that this is something I really wish to do. I learn a lot about myself and others. I became a better person thanks to my clients and I dare to believe they did the same.

When starting with coaching I heard about Virtual Assisting job from a colleague of mine. Though than I thought it was nothing for me, as what could I offer? Nothing further from the truth. Making an inventory of my professional life I have realised that I can do it as I have been an assistant from the begin and in so many different areas.

So here we come – working from home mom: a coach and a virtual assistant – becoming a person I have always admire. Do I like it? – Yes, of course. Is it easy? – Not always. Will I change anything in my career so far? – Absolutely not, as it made me a person I am today.

What to write more….? Well, in the times when nobody can be certain of its work place, its relations with others – just be yourself. It is not always easy. It is not always appreciated. It is not always what your family and friends want – though are we living their lives or ours…?

Cooking & Eating the relaxing activities of today…

One thing of many, I love about my international friends, is a fact that each time we arrange the party we do bring our home land meals. That is how I was able to taste food from all over the world without traveling to those countries like Ethiopia, Mexico, Bolivia, US, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Venezuela, Serbia, Turkey, Netherlands, Spain, Chile, Suriname, Georgia, Moldavia, Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria.

How one can discover and learn about other cultures? Through tasting their food 🙂 

I am happy that my friends are not only preparing and sharing those tasty dishes with me and others but also are eager to share their recipes and teach me abut their food.

Of course I am not a professional cook as my partner, however I love to cook, especially when I have friends who would enjoy the meal with me after all. Sharing a meal and laughter with a friend makes me forget about all dark sides of life and make me appreciate human interaction more and more.

I love to combine different ingredients and create new meal from it. Putting loud music and dancing in the tact of cut veggies – it’s a wonderful, relaxing feeling.

I wish you all a wonderful time while cooking and eating, make best of it. What you eat makes your body and mind function.Good functioning body and positive mind are able to attract better energy and better things into your life: job, partner, babies ….

Below on the photo are ingredients of absolutely divine salad made once by my Georgian friend, just cut and mix everything and enjoy it!!!

Ingredients: the same amount of green apple as avocado, a bit of a dill, few raisins, squeeze of lemon, mustard

INTRO…

As a Career & Life Coach and still searching and experiencing exiting things in life, and at the same time meeting amazing people from all over the world woman, I wish to share my personal and external experiences and stories about searching for a job as well as exploring the meaning of life.

Showing what went well and what went wrong (according to myself) while conducting the job search and / or the job interview and how that could affect the personal life.

All the stories are mine or were experience by others, however due to the fact that I have met lots of people in my life, I may not exactly remember their names or places they were working in (therefore I will avoid using names). Also for the purpose of this blog it is not relevant – as hopefully from the stories itself one can gain inspiring and needed information to find the dream job, their dream life.

At the same time, I wish to combine in general the point of view on the job / work floor itself as well as importance of the influence the right job has on personal life.  I wish to elaborate on cultural differences between countries, that others or I have been living and working, as well as between  international points of view while working within the same company / country. How do we perceive things? Will it help us and others to find their dream job they are looking for or live their dream life?

Moreover, I wish to share my opinions on read job related and self development articles.

Finally, I hope to  get into discussion with some of you concerning all mention issues.
