How I Wasted Years In My Life
Hello! I’m Kirstin O’Donovan, the founder of TOPResults Coaching, and I’d like to tell you how I wasted many years in my life. I want to share my story because I am well aware that quite a number of people are heading there, already there or are trying their very best to turn their lives around but do not know how.
When I was younger, I had a completely different life. I was doing all the wrong things…one destructive relationship after the other, accumulating debt and getting involved in things that weren’t good for me. Every day I was living a life that I didn’t want to. I wasn’t fulfilled in anyway and I felt like I just had to accept that this was it, this was the set of cards I had been dealt.
I felt lonely inside, helpless and angry at the world – life was just so unfair. Nothing fulfilled me, I wanted to change, but I just couldn’t. I needed to escape; I wanted so badly to fill this void I felt for so long, but nobody understood. My life was a destructive cycle of partying, having “fun,” and escaping reality in any way I could.
I became the queen of self sabotage and I procrastinated with everything. I so desperately wanted to have the life I imagined in my dreams; I just had no idea if it was possible and how the hell I would do it. Years passed as they do, I procrastinated with everything and my dream felt like it was in another world, hopelessly out of reach. I had no idea how things would change. The only thing I was certain of was that I was getting older and nothing was changing.
Then, one day, everything changed.
I recently started a new job and I was immersed in the world of personal development. I started to learn simple principles to lead a happier and more fulfilled life. There were a lot of principles that you normally hear people talking about, but you never really paid attention to the weight they carry. At that point in life, it didn’t sound like a cliché, it was my salvation and it was as if a light bulb had been turned on in my head! From that point on I decided to turn my situation around, and although change didn’t happen overnight, it was all worth it.
I must admit, I became a bit of a personal development junkie, there was so much to learn and a lot of ‘fixing’ I needed to do. Nothing has been more worth it though. I shiver at the thought of what my life would be like if I had stayed the same. Because of what I had gone through and how I had turned my life around 180 degrees, I became inspired to teach others to do the same.
I started to focus my professional career in coaching and productivity, the two areas that changed everything for me. I’ve spent the last eight years furthering my studies, developing my skills, and increasing my knowledge. As a result, I am now a Certified Personal and Business Coach, as well as an NLP Practitioner.
I now have a successful coaching practice in Madrid and have created the life and business I always wanted when I was younger. I support, teach, and guide others to do the same. I work especially with aspiring entrepreneurs to support them in creating the business and life they want, as well as entrepreneurs who took the step to start their business, but lack the part of organization and productivity to make it more successful.
If you feel like I felt and you desperately want to change, you just don’t know how – please reach out. If you have started your business, but bad time management is undermining it, reach out too.
Don’t put off your dreams anymore, don’t waste time like I did, because it is possible to have everything you truly desire, I know!
Regardless of where you are now and what has happened, you can be who and what you want to be, you just need to take that first step and let somebody who has been there, support and guide you. You don’t need to do it alone!
