45 year old Life Coach Deidre O’Keefe still hasn’t achieved anything outstanding in her life and is beginning to wonder if she ever will.
Deirdre has been training and coaching clients for a number of years now, promising to help them reach reach their potential and realise their dreams, but she has recently found that on reflection, she has never actually achieved any of her own dreams or ambitions.
She, for the most part, rather than take proactive steps to reach her own personal goals, has spent her time and energy posting incredibly annoying “positive quotes” on her Facebook profile, most of which don’t make any fucking sense at all.
Deirdre is a fully qualified life coach, Reiki master, shamanic healer, angel card therapist, color therapist, psychotherapist, NLP practitioner, Cognitive behavioural therapist and counsellor who works with a range of clients on a range of issues.
Speaking to The Potato earlier she commented:
Yea, I’ve been trying to tell people that I’m the best person for them to help them achieve their goals and dreams in life, yet, when i think about it, I’ve never really achieved mine. In fact, I’ve never really pushed myself to do anything amazing. Sure, I’ve read all the books from amazing people and attended their incredibly expensive seminars, but I just havnt done anything impressive in life, you know?!
Deirdre went on to comment that she dreamed of travelling the world for a year to see some of the most amazing places on the earth, but she just coudlnt afford it. She then thought she’d make money as a life coach, save up and then head off on her travels, but recently she discovered that over the last 6 years, she’s actually spent nearly €30,000 on trainings, books and DVDs in the self help industry.
Yea, it’s a little ironic alright! I could have just saved up for a couple of years and then headed off – I probably wouldn’t only needed €15k to do it aswell – and i’d be a more interesting and experienced person because of it! Oh well, sure I’ll just read another book about a famous explorer and then market myself as someone who has ‘studied all the best globe trotters in the world’. It’s kinda the same…”
Deirdre will be running another seminar soon if, entitled “How To Read About An Amazing Life Yet Never Do Anything Interesting With Your Own” and is expecting it to sell out, as she has just come back from an intensive sales and marketing training course. That cost €10,000.
