This Is Me…
WHEN YOU GO INWARDS AND START TO UNCOVER WHO YOU REALLY ARE, HOW THE WORLD AND THE UNIVERSE REALLY WORK, AND CONSCIOUSLY CREATE YOUR LIFE AND WORK FROM THERE… EVERY THING CHANGES.
I’m Liz Watt.
I’m not a coach or a mentor. I’m not your guru. I don’t have all the answers or magic formulas. I’m still figuring it out.
I work with people who know that there is much more to the world we live in and who want to design their life and work in a more conscious and connected way… that just feels good.
I am here to inspire you to uncover and reconnect with who YOU really are, where you came from and what you are here to do.
I followed all the rules. I did exactly what they told me to do.
I studied hard, got good grades, got a degree in architecture, got a good job, and built a big, bold successful career in architecture and project management.
I was constantly working, constantly tired, constantly just getting by and trying to get ahead – and waiting for the promised rewards to come. And waiting, and waiting, and waiting…
It didn’t feel good. Life was struggle.
I became obsessed with figuring out money and business as the promised path to financial and personal freedom.
I invested in personal development and wealth creation – books and courses and mentor and coaches and masterminds and seminars.
I worked on my self, trying to “fix” all the things that coaches and mentors and gurus told me needed fixing.
I attempted multiple income strategies – the share market, eBay, real estate, online businesses, consulting businesses, the same job with different companies, different jobs with the same company.
I left multiple jobs, multiple times, to start a business or financial endeavour that worked for a while, and then didn’t.
Focussing on making the money wasn’t the answer.
I went down the spiritual, new-age path… I worked through my “checklists” of gratitude, and affirmations and vision boards and meditations, and sure, some things changed, but nothing dramatic. Every thing still felt like hard work.
I burned out and broke my self… I created a wakeup call to start to live and work very differently. It forced me to stop trying to find answers in the same place, and to choose to uncover what was really going on in the world, and why, no matter what I tried, I could not get it to work for me. And ultimately to figure out how to make it work.
I went in search of truth… I wanted more than futile “six-figure-strategies” and new-age, mass-produced spirituality. I wanted to know what was the point of all this, what was really happening in the world, and my life, and why, and how it all connects together.
I needed to know the bigger picture… beyond business and money and the physical world of capitalism and consumerism.
I started to put together all the pieces of the puzzle that I had been collecting, from how the universe works, how money and business and the system of life in the Western world actually works, and how to be successful in it, to how human beings function and why we are the way we are, and what the heck might be wrong with me.
I realised that of most of what we have been told is a lie.
Most of us come into this world, and are told how things are, what is expected of us and what we are supposed to do… from parents, peers, teachers, society, government, and every one around us.
We are told that life is what it is, and we are supposed to go to school, and get a job, a car, a mortgage, a family.
Except it’s not.
The world we live in is completely imagined and manufactured by human minds.
It is just one option for human life, built on systems of capitalism, consumerism, greed, production and waste. Every thing that we are told are the way things are, are designed to feed into this system for the benefit of a few wealthy and powerful individuals.
For the rest of us, life becomes a struggle of survival, working day to day to make the money to pay the rent, with some minor relief as we drop mindlessly exhausted in front of a TV or computer screen or bottle of wine at the end of the day.
The world we live in has been created and agreed on collectively by the humans who adhere to the rules we have been told.
For many, deep down, we know that this is not how we are supposed to live, and a long-forgotten part of us whispers in our ear, constantly tapping at our shoulder, begging us to question, ask, and go in search of something deeper, more, and closer to the truth of who and what we really are and how things are supposed to be, or could be.
The way we currently live is out of whack, disconnected and incongruent from nature, the planet, the people and our true selves.
The way we are supposed to live is integrated and aligned with nature, the planet, the people and our true selves.
Except we have forgotten it all.
I’m here to help you find integration and alignment.
Finding a sense of internal peace in the way you work and live comes from:
- Understanding who you are, how the world and the universe works, and what you are truly here to do;
- Redefining and designing a way of work and life that aligns and integrates with your true self and the natural order of the things; and
- Trusting your self and your inner intuition to follow the path that is right for you.
When you have clarity and alignment, it changes every thing.
I don’t have it all sorted yet. I’m not going to pretend I do.
I’ve just figured out (the long way) a lot of things that have helped me understand the world and my place in it, and why, no matter what I did, I didn’t feel good in this world, and how by re-connect to my true self I can change the way I work and live.
If you’re here, chances are that something in this world doesn’t feel right to you.
There’s probably something for you to learn.
So check it out, take what works for you, and let go of the rest, and then keep searching.
It’s the only way you’re really going to find your own truth.
If you want to get to know your self better,
and start to align your business and your life with who you really are…
