Christopher shares a story that really gets you thinking... enjoy.

I am wondering what you are thinking when you read the title for this article.

Are you thinking, Did this guy get hit on the head? How about he must be mad – how can being hit by a car be the best thing that could happen to anyone? Was this guy actually damaged? Well let me answer these three possible questions for you.
Yes I bumped my head and the Doctors assure me that no long term damage was done. Yes Mad has been used to describe me affectionately, I prefer the term “a love of life”.
Yes I was damaged and have a constant daily reminder which I chose to use as an opportunity to be thankful.

So here it is. On the last Friday in November I was crossing the road to my home. I had just a great coaching conversation and was in a positive state. As I was three steps away from safety, I was hit by a car sustaining ligament damage to my left knee, flipping me onto the road. This also resulted in the aggravation of a recently healed back challenge.

Can you imagine how I felt at that time? I was shocked and in a lot of pain. After the resulting trip to hospital, I realised I had two choices. I could chose to allow the negative aspect of the situation to engulf me or I could chose to chose to use this as a positive. So I made that choice and from then on my life kept getting better and better.

After having a week with no appointments, I arranged sessions with my own coach and I then started to fully live my life by design.

When I chose to fully live life by design, I stretched my comfort zone and it , like my life is unrecognisable since the accident. I have written articles, made new friends, invested in my own healing, got more clients and enjoyed my life on every single level with a greater appreciation and gratitude. I have taken so many actions spurred on by Living Life by Design principles that have really enriched my life.

What will you chose?
