London, UK, 26th August 2004: Almost nine out of ten thirtysomething professionals feel they are not living up to their full potential as they hit a ‘quarter-life crisis’, a new online survey conducted by life coaching organisation LifeCoachForYou shows.
According to LifeCoachForYou principal Steve Errey, “Our twenties are a blur of opportunities, and are typically about chasing a career, pursuing money, finding a relationship and generally having as much fun as possible. It’s when people hit their thirties that they tend to shift their focus and look for ways of being personally fulfilled, and it’s here that people run into trouble.”
“The survey confirms that the so-called quarter-life crisis is now a reality for many people,” adds Errey. “It’s the disconnect between where people have been in their twenties, where they find themselves today, and where they feel they want to be that’s often the cause.“
The online poll of over four hundred thirtysomething professionals from the UK and US shows that the quarter-life crisis is being fuelled by limiting beliefs, a lack of confidence and a sense that people need to sort things out themselves without appearing to be weak, coupled with the strong sense that they really can be more in life.
Seven out of ten of those polled admitted that they have beliefs that limit them in life and nearly three-quarters said that they’d love to be more confident. The poll also showed that two-thirds of people find it hard to ask for help, and one-quarter never seek support from others
In response to this growing problem, Steve Errey has launched a suite of coaching products designed to help successful thirtysomething’s find the clarity, purpose and direction they crave. Steve’s coaching products are tailor-made to move people from simply surviving towards a place where they’re thriving, with a compelling sense of who they are, what they’re doing and where they’re heading. His products answer the top three ‘wants’ that were expressed in the poll – to find direction, to get help in achieving goals and to be more challenged. Also, as coaching is seen as a positive thing for people to do, so the stigma of seeking help or appearing weak doesn’t come into it – Steve’s coaching products assume that people are highly capable, resourceful and ‘whole’ individuals.
Never before have there been so many opportunities for people. For thirtysomething’s, seeing through these opportunities and finding what’s right for them can seem like an impossible task. Steve is passionate that 2005 can be the year that people really step into the heart of their lives and begin to have, do and be more.
