Making a Difference


It’s probably an ego thing, but I love the work I do,
my clients come from everywhere to start their lives anew.
They show up worried with sad stories tough to bear,
wondering why they’re not happy and life is just not fair.
They share with me, for instance, the following stories or two:
“I’m confused and don’t know the kind of work that I can do.”
“I’m angry and feel like a wild animal trapped in a zoo.”
“I don’t have any marketable skills and haven’t got a clue.”
“There are no jobs to fit my skills, I’ve only seen a few.”
“I’m not happy and want to start my life brand new.”
“The job search is a political hassle from my point of view.”
Others frown and judge me, “You’re not working? It’s been a month or two.”
“I’m lost and even terrified, my self esteem is suffering too.”
“I don’t know where to start, I just don’t know what to do.”
So I help them uncover those special passions that expose who they are,
a special place inside to BE; knowing they can win and reach the stars.
This new power is exciting to watch as they all become aware,
to discover and understand that the answers were always there.
They just needed a catalyst to point out clearer directions,
to produce much better decisions and assure the right selections.
