As a busy leader, do you long to move through your life more easily and effortlessly?
YOU’RE A BUSY LEADER…
* You operate on 24/7 overdrive and your life is not only busy, but it’s also stressful as you juggle the many demands on your time.
* Your work brings tons of responsibilities as does your personal life including kids, partner, aging parents, finances, running a home.
* You just can’t seem to find the time to pause, take a breath, relax and do the things you love to do more often.
In fact, you may be out of touch with what those things are
If only you had more time each day, you could make yourself a priority
This has been your way of life for a long time and you’re at that point where you’re ready to invest in yourself, figure things out and make some lasting and meaningful changes…
To create a rewarding and soul fulfilling life even though you’ve got a ton on your plate and can’t quite see how you can make this happen…
I’M DEE DEE SUNG
And I help busy leaders operating on 24/7 overdrive create work-life harmony so they can enjoy rewarding, engaged and soul fulfilling ives and contribute to their communities in meaningful ways.
And while we don’t know each other yet, I know what you’re experiencing.
I believe what’s personal is universal and I know what it’s like to live life on full tilt, to be pushed to the max in all areas of my life, to become so familiar with stress that it feels normal, to come home tired to my core, to feel out of control, to have to step up and tend to aging parents (my Mother had Alzheimer’s), to not be present to important relationships, to overeat because it brings an odd sense of comfort and, the list goes on. Do any of these sound familiar?
On the eve of turning 48, my parents died within ten weeks of each other, my long-term relationship fell apart and I moved across the country back to my hometown to start fresh which included having to reinvent my life – get a new job, reconnect with old friends, establish my new rhythm and go about designing this next chapter.
It was a really challenging period.
My physical health was compromised, my sense of self-worth had been shaken and I really couldn’t see the forest through the trees.
I was exhausted. If my life were a symphony it was definitely out of tune and this is when I decided it was time to figure out how to bring a sense of calm and harmony into my life.
Easier said than done.
I was called on to deeply reflect on what I stood for, what I valued, who I wanted to be and how different that was from who I was in that moment. I had to learn to show myself the compassion and kindness I would to a friend who was going through a rough time. I had to let go of the paradigm of perfection and the pressures of people pleasing. I had to learn how to say ‘no’ and be ok with it when I wasn’t up for something. Most importantly, I came to understand that putting myself first wasn’t self-serving, it was a necessity.
Over time, as I got to know myself better, I made better decisions and my life got better. I started to recognize how much I did have rather than focusing on what I didn’t have. Looking back, this pivotal time in my life was a huge gift for it gave me the opportunity to take stock and recreate myself into a way of life that is by no means perfect (I don’t believe there is such a thing) but it’s rich, rewarding, full of joy and one that I’m deeply proud of and grateful for.
HOW DID I DO THIS?
One day, one step at a time…
With all the loss and changes I went through, I hit rock bottom which propelled me to take stock and get clear on what I wanted to create in my life. I became more intentional and more courageous in pursuing those things – some big, some small and sometimes, I wasn’t sure if I could keep moving forward on this journey of creating a harmonious life. Yet my commitment to figuring it out helped me to keep my momentum going.
Truthfully, I didn’t do this on my own and while I’m responsible for doing the heavy lifting, I made sure to surround myself with like-minded people and partner with a coach (in fact a few different ones over the years) to walk with me as I went about putting my life into perspective – determining what was no longer serving me, what to let go of and what areas to dial up in order to bring more meaning, fulfillment and desired results into my life. My best thoughts had brought me to where I was and were no longer sufficient enough to get me to where I wanted to go. You see, I knew I couldn’t get to where I wanted to go without the help of a coach who really understood me and whose style resonated with mine (fit is everything).
My biggest lesson from all of this?
As I learned to manage my thoughts and focused on simplifying my life, I gained more clarity, I became more confident in the choices I was making and, as a result, I got to know, like and trust myself more than ever before which is THE KEY to creating work life harmony.
