Now on to my guest for today, Lee Chambers of Essentialise Coaching in England.
What would you do if you woke up one morning and found you couldn’t walk? Lee’s journey to becoming an environmental psychologist and functional life coach is rooted in his experience with developing a chronic illness where he suddenly found himself without the ability to walk.
The father of a young child with his wife expecting another, he had to summon up the determination to face up to what had happened, become aware of his limits and failures as growth opportunities, and take ownership of his own path to wellness and recovery. He now shares what he learned about the importance of cultivating a healthy lifestyle to living your best life.
Lee got his start as an entrepreneur not long after graduating from university, after he found himself unemployed in the recession of 2008 and he started what would become a successful video game company.
By the time he developed the illness that took away his ability to walk, though, he realized he wanted to find another path, and in recovering from his illness and summoning up the determination to be able to walk again, he found a new calling as a health and wellness coach. He believes strongly in the vital link between physical health and well-being and finding joy and fulfillment in life, encouraging his clients to experiment with ways that best build and harness their energies.
Now let’s get better together.
Actions to Try or Advice to Take
- One key lesson Chambers learned early on was that pushing out of your comfort zone is essential to finding your path and finding success on your own terms. As the first in his family to go to university, this was a lesson he had to learn early on his own.
- Be grateful for all you have. It wasn’t until he was in the hospital that Chambers took the time to feel and express his gratitude for all he had in life.
- You don’t have to have it all figured out. When Chambers returned to university after losing his direction and going home for several months, he did some inner work but he also realized that he just had to work through the discomfort, instead of thinking a clear path would just open up for him.
