Hi and Welcome!
This site ( which is also known as SevenDaySoul.com) is for people like me who want to want to really flourish in life,
to live their life consciously, rather than just wandering through life
with no sense of personal purpose or direction. I want this site to
build a passionate community of like-minded people who want to live
a life that is personally meaningful, where they feel like their life is a
“good fit” for who they are, their strengths and values.
SPEAKING AND COACHING
We all want to be happy and there’s nothing wrong with that. But
research shows that the very act of chasing happiness, pushes it
further away from us because there is always something else that we
will want next. Meaning in life, on the other hand, is a more long-
lasting contentment, a feeling that our life matters in the bigger picture
of things. Unlike happiness, we can have meaning in our lives even
when we are sick or struggling with what life throws at us.
A large part of my work, in addition to my online coaching, involves
speaking to companies around all aspects of mental health and
Meaning, in Wellness Weeks, Lunch & Learns, Management Away Days, Focus Days etc .
(You can see some of the multiple topics I
speak about in the Corporate Health section of my “Workshops”
page.) Quite often at the end of a workshop, I meet people who within
a few sentences of speaking to me in person, are struggling to hold
back tears because of the pressure they are living under.
I have also suffered this pressure and remember a time when I used
to cry on a Sunday evening, dreading facing in to another working
week. I know the feeling of thinking “what am I doing this for? What’s
the point?”. And now I spend my time helping others, some of whom
are starting out in life and want to design a career with meaning, stay-
at-home parents who want to feel more fulfilled and teach their kids
how to find meaning in their lives, people who feel trapped in their
jobs who want to connect what they do with their life’s purpose,
companies who want to create a more meaning-centred role for key
employees when the money doesn’t matter anymore, and retirees
who are struggling to find their purpose after employment.
