If you don’t design your own life someone else will do it for you. If you don’t take charge of your life course, it will just end up being a carbon copy of the status quo. Be you, there’s already enough of everyone else.

After having studied my module in Positive Psychology and Inspired Leadership and started up my life coaching business, I created this additional module to be more closely focused on personal and professional development, because I felt it would greatly assist me in refining my role as a positive change leader/life coach.

I also created this module to sharpen my self-coaching and the design of my own life. Being empowered to design my own life is one of the reasons why I created my MTA Portfolio.

A well-designed life is a life that makes sense. It’s a life in which who are, what you believe, and what you do all line up together. When you have a well-designed life and someone asks you, ‘How’s it going?,’ you have an answer. You can tell that person that your life is going well, and you tell how and why. A well-designed life is a marvelous portfolio of experiences, of adventures, of failures that taught you important lessons, of hardships that made you stronger and helped you know yourself better, and of achievements and satisfactions. It’s worth emphasizing that failures and hardships are a part of every life, even the well-designed ones.
