..after all we are not too proud to admit that we may have made the odd little mistake in the past and could do with advice from a kind soul now and then.
YI would be the first to admit that life can be a bit of a challenge from time to time and I do like to think of myself as one of nature’s more open minded types. In fact it has always been my maxim for life that we should try any avenue that leads to our eventually becoming a better person and not being afraid to ask for help along life’s highway. So what do lifestyle consultants offer that a good spliff doesn’t?
Well it seems, according to one such menace, that your thoughts create your reality and that you can overcome life’s challenges, using the power of your mind. Now I am no expert, but haven’t human beings been doing this for themselves ever since they crawled out of the primeval soup? So why have a group of women, and some barely out of their teens, have popped up all over the place presuming to tell world-weary adults how to live their lives?
Simple, these irritating, spoilt, only child, obnoxious mares, probably failed at shorthand, hair dressing, baby-sitting or any number of other pastimes traditionally set aside for them. You have to wonder therefore; just what kind of people would call to their home a young woman with about as much savvy of the real world as a long time Alzheimer´s sufferer for a session of verbal nonsense? I would guess that the clientele fall
into just a few categories; old ladies, whose own daughters or granddaughters have abandoned them because they are terminally boring, gullible like minded souls with a completely dormant organ between their
ears and dirty old men!
For a bit of research into life coaching, as this latest farcical fad calls itself, I looked up a few sites on the internet and amongst all the usual b****cks, the bare bones of the matter seems to be, that there are no recognized certificates or diplomas in the field of life coaching.
Well there’s a surprise! I didn’t think there would be for one minute; so why do some of these witches I have noticed recently have more letters after her name than a top brain surgeon? Simple, one told me, they use what is described as an interior design diploma. Now I have nothing against anybody who makes a living extracting money from people who should know better; what I do object to is the falsification of qualifications to do so; after all, any con man/woman worth their salt, should be able to make their living on shear b*****it alone.
It is not only immoral, but is probably illegal to con your way into someone’s home by quoting a bunch of falsified diplomas to do so. To give them their due however; the majority of these crones can talk the hind leg off a donkey and it is this confidence, built up via a lifetime of Mummy and Daddy telling them how clever and special they are, that will see them continuing to lead vacuous lives right up until some poor sod has the misfortune to marry them, and probably dump them.
The way some of today’s youngsters seem to be going, you could argue that it is refreshing to see that at least a few young people are pursuing a more spiritual existence; by the same token however, at least with a hoodie the threat of danger is obvious; with a Holistic Lifestyle Consultant it isn’t and it is much slower and more painful to be bored to death!
