Want a quick and easy way to test how balanced your life is?
Check this out. Download and print out the Life Wheel and then go around the wheel and rate each area of your life out of 10. Mark it on the wheel and then join up the dots.
Imagine these shapes are the wheels on your car… If your wheel looks more like some kind of deformed octagon then you’re in for a bumpy ride, with a lot of ups and downs.
The thing about having balance in your life is that you have so many things going on that if one area is not so hot, the other areas can keep you positive until you can get that area back up to where you like it. If you only have your career and your family or partner and don’t spend any time or effort looking after your health, your friends, your finances, your personal /spiritual development, then if you lose your job or your partner, you might feel like your world is caving in. If, on the other hand you have hobbies and spend time with friends, have some savings and other goals for your life then you’ll be much better able to cope.
It is good to have a goal for each area of your life that you are working towards, so that you are continually making small improvements in every area. As you look at your wheel you might see a leverage point. A leverage point is one area which, if it improved, would have a flow on improvement to lots of other areas. Health is often a great leverage point.
As you go around the wheel and notice the things on the wheel that are a 5 or below, take some time to reflect on why it is that way. Ask yourself:
What would happening if this area was at a 10 for me?
How would that feel?
How important is this to me? ( out of 10)
Why have I not made this a priority in my life before?
What action can I take today to improve this area of my life?
You are a multifaceted being with many different talents, skills, needs and gifts. If you are limiting yourself by not taking the time to focus on different areas of life then you are selling yourself short.
This wheel is by no means the definitive list, feel free to change the areas if you feel they do not apply, however it is important to have at least 6-8 different things going on in your life.
I suggest that you re-evaluate your life wheel every couple of months so you can take a snapshot of your progress and keep focussed on improving all areas of your life equally.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
