About Coach Mario Sousa
I am an agent for change, a catalyst for transformation and a strategist for success. I help frustrated professionals who feel unfulfilled and overwhelmed, discover their purpose so they finally create and live a life they love.
I have spent the last 10 years on my personal Journey towards Self-Mastery.
Ive lost count of the number of times in my life conversations with acquaintances have ended with the others saying, "I cant believe I just shared all that with you!
I think its because Ive had more than my fair share of challenge in life and have overcome lots of adversity. Somehow, others can sense it and pour their heart out trusting in that energetic bond.
My life is probably a lot like yours. I graduated from high school and dropped out of college. I got that so called 'good job'. Next I bought a townhouse. Then I got married, became a dad and began raising a child. I did all the right things. All of the things you 'should' do to live a good life. Except when I got to the end of that list, I didnt feel fulfilled or happy. I didnt feel satisfied. Even though Id checked a lot off the list, I didnt feel like I was living my dream. I just had a hungering for something more. This couldnt be all there was to life, could it?
So, I set out to find out for myself. Learning and growing and figuring it out.
In that journey, I learned that the most important thing I can do for myself is to consciously choose my life. Those 'shoulds' were good and important, yet they left me hungering for more. And so I know from personal experience that this sense of there must be something more is an amazing opportunity. An opportunity to look at all the parts of life and your life as a whole. To consciously make choices to live life on purpose. To lead life where you want it to be, instead of settling.
Living on Purpose is a Lifetime Journey
Living life on purpose is not about discovering some hidden purpose for which you were designed and are hopefully lucky enough to -OMITTED- life on purpose is a decision you make, a plan you create and actions you take.
Ive learned that it will be a lifetime journey to continuously live my life on purpose. Ive learned the importance of recognizing my value. What it takes to stand fully in my power, express my value and make an impact. Ive learned how important it is to understand my personal values and live my life so that my thoughts and actions are deeply aligned with those values. How to create and hold a big, bold, vision of my life so that I can be consciously creating what I want in every moment.
Ive learned to surround myself with people who inspire, motivate and uplift me. The kind of people who will pick me up when I flounder and not kicking me when Im down. Ive learned to set and hold boundaries so that I am a powerful authority in my life, and not letting life happen to me. Ive learned to create structure in my life that lets me be fully who I am, living how I want to live.
In short, Ive learned to love myself and to love my life. All of this is the real work needed to live life on purpose. Its the work that makes life meaningful and rich.
