An interview with Linda Karlsson Life Coach
What is the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome in your life?
Our upbringing shapes us all in some way. It does not have to be good or bad. The question is what to do if you feel that the form you have received does not fit into the goals you have with your life. My biggest challenge in life has been to reshape my inner self. Working with my low self-esteem has taken many years and I have more years left on that journey.
I will soon turn 40 and it is only now that I have begun to realize what potential I have and which people have done more harm than good.
Learning to listen to my own desires and not the ones that have been forced on me since I was young can be a big challenge. Believing in myself and daring to trust that I will find the right path that will take me to my goals is not always easy but I am trying every day. I have learnt to enjoy the journey and to celebrate all wins, big and small, on the way towards the finish line.
What are your three top tips to overcome the obstacle?
- Learning to shut out advice that does not take you in the direction you want.
- See your progress towards the finish line as a journey.
- Create a good network around you that supports you both in struggles and in victories.
