And in the same way, it’s great to be ambitious, have goals, have a strong vision for yourself, and become successful in your career. But if all your focus is on ticking the ‘life boxes’ then all you’re doing is making your life look great and ‘perfect’ on the outside, but on the inside it just feels empty, resulting in huge disappointments because you had expectations of what ticking those boxes were supposed to bring you.
This is the trap. We’re so conditioned to believe that by ticking these boxes we will finally have the fulfilment and satisfaction that we’ve been looking for all these years and then when you eventually get there you realise ‘wow what an anticlimax that was!’
Yes! Have big goals! Have wonderful relationships! Have huge amounts of success in your life! But unless alongside your ‘life checklist’ you’re also dedicating yourself to knowing who you are, knowing what you want and the nurturing the relationship you have with yourself (which is an ongoing process as you are continuously evolving), you will only just up feeling empty and disconnected, no matter how many boxes you tick that look impressive to other people. By delving inwards within yourself, you get to make life decisions that are aligned with who you are and what you truly want, which is SO much more enjoyable and fulfilling. You make these decisions from a place of want not a place of need which is so much more enjoyable and fulfilling.
You get to choose.

Life coaching changed my life and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I was at a point in my life where I felt stuck and wanted things to change. After working with Aliya I realised that it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. I just had to take the first step and do it and once I did everything started to move smoothly in my life. I have learnt how to overcome challenges without pressure and deal with situations more easily and in a more positive way.
I have seen so much growth within myself as a result of coaching and I am no longer holding myself back from doing what I want to do, and the areas I’ve seen the biggest improvements in are self-love, self-growth and communication. Aliya also feels like a friend, not just a coach and I love how understanding and non-judgemental she is, and how she knows how to deal with each situation. She really looked into people and helps them both believe in themselves and bring out the real person that’s within them.

I met Aliya in 2018 when I was just starting with my self-discovery journey. I can’t express how much of a positive impact she has had in my growth, my choices in life and my art career. I’ve attended multiple workshops and her beautiful community of women who flourish. She has always been a very supportive and wonderful coach. Her authenticity is so inspiring. She encouraged me to challenge my fear of public speaking and invited me to speak in one of her podcasts episodes.
