220. Expert Interview: Finding Your Life's Path
Louise Armstrong is on a mission to help women have a bright future making the second half of their lives the BETTER half! She achieves this through her online coaching business and seeing clients face to face using a simple, logical program giving the client a positive outlook on life, removing destructive beliefs so that her clients are able to move forward using their intuition and achieving their goals. By incorporating these steps into their daily lives, results become permanent and people start to live life with grace and ease.
Finding Your Life's Path
“This is the crux of many people’s lives. It can happen in your 20s, 30s, or really at any time. I particularly have chosen to work with women because I can resonate with how they feel. I’ve been there myself, totally stuck, with no idea what to do next — financially, with relationships, with where I was living. I help the women boost their self-esteem to be able to cope better with everyday life challenges. This effectively comes from gratitude, daily success rituals, exercise and self-care. A lot of women have let this slip along the way in life. While looking after children or partners, they’ve forgotten how to look after themselves. Basically, they’ve been looking after everybody else but themselves and have lost their way.”
Why Is This Important?
“I always give this analogy. When we’re on a commercial airline, the cabin crew comes on the public address system. They tell and show us what to do in the event there’s an emergency and we need oxygen. They tell us we need to put the oxygen mask on ourselves first before we look after our children. That’s the picture I ask my clients to keep in mind, because if we feel good as women, we are going to be much better wives, parents, friends, or colleagues, able to relate with others much better, in a more effective manner. Looking after ourselves first really does help others. Self-care is a self-less act. So we talk about it in that way. A lot of women initially will think of this as sort of selfish, because they’re used to putting everyone else first.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
“The gradual approach we use in group is so important. We often can’t face things that are holding us back because they’re very painful. It’s the mind protecting us from deeply situated, painful things that have been around for many years, going back to our childhood. So if we were to start to look into these beliefs in our first hour together, it wouldn’t work. Our minds would not allow us to go there. That’s why we use a gradual build-up. We make it a very safe environment, 100% confidential. I share a bit about me, and everything stays in the room. I think because I open up as well, that helps everybody else feel the process is safe.”
