Do You Have A Birds Eye View Of Your Life?


Have you ever been to a football game and watched what happens at half time? In most sports, the team gathers around in a circle and the coach stands in the middle motivating the team for the next half. The coach has the birds eye view perspective over the game and can provide critical input on what is happening in the match –  specifically pointing out what went wrong and what needs to be achieved to overcome the other team.

Its fascinating to watch the transformation in the team after the coach has passed on their words of wisdom and motivation.

Now transfer this method of thinking to your own life. Have you got someone overlooking your life path and commenting on what can be done to improve your game?

Its called having a life coach. The term has been around for a while now and up until about 18 months ago i thought it was just a hyped up business model designed for high end corporate executives to power up their efficiencies in their work life.

They say when the student is ready, the teacher appears and this was certainly the case with me. Like a lot of people i had a lot of emotional struggles and was finding it hard to see the forest from the trees.

I decided to explore the opportunity of having a life coach. Like most things as soon as i started looking, i was provided with the answer.

An amazing person came into my life by the name of Jill Mcintyre. Jill is one of those people that has discovered their purpose in life. She has a genuine gift in being able to help others succeed in everything they do by having the birds eye perspective. Jill is able to peel back the onion and explore every layer in your life and help you discover and define your habits, traits and why you live your life the way you do.

For me it meant taking control of my life again and pointing it in the direction i wanted it to travel. Just being aware of where our beliefs come from and having the tools and understanding to be able to change the way we think is incredibly empowering.

We all have fears and reservations about many things in life; it takes courage and determination to be able to address and explore those fears and by doing so you are opening yourself up to a wealth of opportunities.

I don’t usually promote others on this blog but i feel it would be doing a disservice by not sharing this person’s wonderful talents with others. Having Jill in my life has brought about some incredible changes in the way i think, the way i do and the results i have been achieving.

Having someone over my shoulder encouraging me, supporting me and guiding me gives me the edge in everything i do. Every time i speak with Jill its like the half time break at a footy match. She has a birds eye view and just at the right time i get the perspective i need to help me soar like an eagle.

Its important that we all strive to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. To do this requires the support of others . Life is not a dress rehearsal so make the most with the time you have by utilizing the tools and resources that come into your life.

    Hi Matt

    What a wonderful post!

    Your analogy with football is great … I’m noticing a common theme here! 😉

    From the sounds of it, Jill came into your life at exactly the right time (I love how that works!) and has made a big difference to you.

    The fact that each of us are so caught up in our own lives does make it difficult to see what’s often right in front of us.

    It really does pay to “take a step back” and look at your life as if you were another person watching from the sidelines (… like it?! … get it?! ;)).

    There have been things in my life that I’ve done in a particular way and haven’t questioned because … well, I don’t really know why! (habit perhaps?)

    Then my sister (usually) or another person close to me has come along and questioned me about it and suddenly I’m seeing what I’m doing from an entirely different perspective! I’m always amazed that I couldn’t see what was right under my nose!!

    I’ll check out the link to the personality profile – I’m curious!

    Keep up the great work, Matt. Your posts are always fantastic!

    Hi Matt,
    fantastic advise & analogy.
    The law of attraction is definitely in action in your life. The synchronicities of the appropriate people coming into your life at the right time, I love it when that happens 🙂
    Like Kylie, I’m curious now, so I’ll check Jill’s link out also.
    Thanks for sharing Matt.
    Cheers Toni

    Hi Matt,

    Your words hit home Matt and ring true…….to have another perspective is like having someone hold your hand and give you strength to forge the path that is for you. Amazing!

    I know the feeling of this and it is wonderful, encouraging and enlightening. To delve into oneself is the essence of life and creates a journey that is full to the brim with happiness and love.

    Great post Matt, great perspective and of course love the analogy!

    I appreciate your post! I agree with you totally! To have someone from the ‘outside’ share what they see, is a huge help! As you saw the analogy of the game and the coach’s birds eye view, it makes it all understandable!
    Thank you for sharing!

In this blog you will find personal experiences and ideas from Matt and his own quest for financial freedom.

Matt worked in the theatre industry as a lighting technician for over 15 years. Although the work was satisfying and allowed him to explore his creative talents, Matt was ruled by the need to swap his time for money to survive.

In 2005, Matt quit the theatre industry to educate himself in property investing and personal development. Since then has created his own property networking group that has over 200 members and now invests full time in property and internet marketing.

On his journey from paid employee to entrepreneur, Matt has discovered that personally developing himself and creating a winning mindset was critical to achieving any and all of his dreams and goals.

This blog is dedicated to sharing the pathway to those hopes and dreams.
