When thinking about my life and how I live it. I made ground rules for myself last year. I’m guilty of not looking at them or being mindful of following them. I’ve never thought of having laws of success.
I’ve finished reading The Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepax Chopra. Even with the title saying laws of success, it like he says, can be the spiritual laws of life. This book is one recommended from my Life Coaching Course. I’d loaned the book and one of his others from the library.
I guessed from it being 24 years old I was judging it by its age and not just its cover. From page 1 though, I was hooked. Even being 24 years old, it still relates to today’s world.
I love that it has commitments of how to follow each law. I got the sense that I could slow down. Out of all the laws, the last ‘The Law of Dharma or Purpose of Life’ is the one that spoke to me the most. Showing the different internal questions between ego and spirit.
Ego – What’s in it for me?
Spirit – How can I help?
Seeing as I’ve found a purpose of helping people in my life. Seeing this written down made me stop and think. I’ve been running on ego most of my life. That awareness is what could change how I live for the purpose of my life.
What changes could I see? Not just by implementing the last law but all seven. I liked the book that much, I’ve decided to put it on my wish list. I’d love to read it again. I can’t wait to start his next book.
I even checked the library catalogue to see if they have any of his other books. They’ve many more. If it’s nice tomorrow afternoon once I’ve finished work, I may have a trip to the library. I haven’t been in my new local one yet. I can also drop this book back in.

The past couple of weeks I’ve been completing a course on FutureLearn; The Self-Awareness Coach. I thought it would be some CPD (continued professional development) to help me with training to become my dream of being a life coach.
Coming to the end, it’s been more personal development with my own inner self-awareness. On this front, I believe I can save my money on upgrading. Being more self-aware has that sense of freedom.
The tutors asked questions that I haven’t considered before and has got me thinking. I was being honest with myself and the other students could see that as well.
It may not be a professional qualification to help me but it has helped me. In the future having a self-awareness could help me when I do become a life coach.

My lone trip to London and back for the UCP meet up has been a success. No anxiety attacks. I did have some worry thoughts at times but my overall thoughts were reduced.
My first hurdle came when arriving at the London Underground to find that the tube lines I was planning for were closed. My mind went into a whirlwind trying to read the underground map. I saw Paddington but couldn’t even see where I was.
Thankfully an attendant was close by for me to ask. Which got me to the hotel with 5 minutes to spare until the start time.
My next hurdle was the fact it was a large group. Here is where my mind goes on lockdown. To the block dark space, I cause myself to build when anxiety flares. I struggle to communicate and connect when there are large groups of people.
Today was no different. But my thoughts were more settled. I did start a couple of conversations up and a couple of people started with me too. But the majority of the other people had better connections then what I’m skilled at.
But I did it. I spent the whole day there and found the meet up interesting. I’ve always been a logical thinker, always a notebook in hand to write notes. It was different and very strange to sit there and listen to what’s going on in the here and now.
I feel I wanna continue this but think it may take time to adjust. Accept that my mind can take information, process and retain what I’ve heard or had insights on.
A big achievement for me today. Clocks changing early morning tomorrow, I feel I need the hour I’m gonna lose.
What’ve you achieved today?
I’ve just gone and done what I said I wouldn’t do. I’ve signed up for another course. This course, however, is a big one. It could potentially help me to become a life coach officially.
How’d I come to signing up for the Ultimate Coach Programme?
By a free webinar. A 90-minute webinar on steps to a coaching class. The further I got into the webinar, the more I felt excited and shakey. The programme wasn’t even mentioned until the last part when the main class had finished.
The positivity I felt, the discounted price with lifetime access and bonus content, live events plus more. I’m excited to start.
My only dilemma is Facebook. One part of the course had Q&As on Facebook. I don’t want to miss out so I have to figure out what I want to do about that. The coach on the programma, CC’d a support into the reply email to ask what I could do regarding Facebook.
A hard conversation with myself needs to be had.
