Recently, I had two new twenty-something clients in separate first-time sessions answer very similarly when I asked them what made them seek help. One said ” Simply put: I have lost my MoJo” and the other said ” I was hoping you could help me get my MoJo back”.
With the word “MoJo” these clients were describing what they knew was missing from their core self: their energy, their confidence, their own bizazz.
Mojo is your own ‘magic power’ where your confidence and motivation make things happen. You see the opportunities and you take them. Mojo is in sinc when everything goes right because you know how to get around the hurdles.
We can see the Mojo of entertainers during a great concert, music video or basketball game.
For my twenty-something clients, they were focused on a bigger life scale and they wanted their Mojo to emanate from their being so that they could be in the driver’s seat of their life.
I see many clients who on paper, life looks fantastic for them – educated, good career, lovely family – yet in reality they are stuck in the quicksand of fear. They are not moving forward for fear of failure or not trusting that they can be successful or they could also be afraid of success or not feel deserving of a happier life.
Holding on to too much anxiety can paralyze a person from taking forward action and leave them ruminating in negative thoughts. When overwhelmed with anxiety, one is focused only on the anticipating (imagined) threats.
As a life coach, I help clients sort through their confusing thoughts and feelings toward clarity and direction with next steps outlined.
Life is about living it with MOJO.
