Sessions with Nemo are absolutely amazing! And there are a thousand reasons why. Although you must experience it for yourself, I would love to share how he changed my life and perhaps can change yours too.
My honest reflection leading into my first coaching session
The moment I scheduled my first ever session with Nemo, he said that it’s going to be “a life-changing conversation”. At that time, I couldn’t really realize how it would be possible that one conversation can change your life. Not like I was skeptical about it, but I’d never had a personal coach or anything like that before, and just didn’t know what to expect. I was completely open to any experience if there was a tiny chance to find a right path for me in life and I came to the session willing to try something new. And fortunately, I met Nemo in the very right moment of my life. I was ready for something great and I had a feeling that there must have been a new chapter if my life and great changes were just behind the corner.
Visual arts and design have always been my passion, and the only things that can give me those precious moments of pure exaltation, excitement and joy. But 8 years ago, I chose a different career path – business and management, which left a very small space for art in my life, doing it only as hobby from time to time. I didn’t know who I was, what I was, where I want to be in a few years, where it’s all going, etc. All I knew was that I loved creating art, and I need it to take a bigger place in my life no matter what.
But at the same time I was desperate and confused, because I was mostly focused on obstacles rather than on opportunities that are literally everywhere.
The Impact of Coaching with Nemo on the Way I see Myself and My World
And this is one of the greatest takeaways from my session with Nemo. He made me realise how many opportunities are around me. I always thought this way, but I could never realise it deeply. And Nemo showed me that there tons of chances that I used to refuse or ignore because sometimes I was scared to fail, was lacking confidence, or was risk-averse in general. I realised that very often we convince ourselves that we are not good enough, not ready, that we are lacking skills, or that there are circumstances in our lives that make our happy future (however you image it) impossible to reach. But in fact, all we need is just to see the circumstances as opportunities, not obstacles.
Another important take away is “happiness is not the place you go to, but a place where you are coming from”. Nemo made me realise that nothing can stop me from being the person I want to be NOW, not one day later but right now. I started thinking of myself not as of a person who wants to become an artist but as I AM an artist already. Similarly, if you are not a person who wants to be an entrepreneur, you ARE an entrepreneur, today and right now, and there is simply no circumstances that might stop you from being yourself, being an entrepreneur or an artist.
Imagine the best version of yourself and be him/her already, act like he/her would act, do what he/she would do. And if you tell yourself, just like I did it to yourself, that you are an artist already, then hell go and paint, introduce yourself as an artist or a designer, show your work to people, do your daily tasks at work as you are an artist who does this job (not the person who wants to become an artist but cannot because she is tight by this job). Once you change the way you perceive yourself, all the difficult circumstances will look as a challenge not as an obstacle any more.
What I’ve Created in My Life Since Working with Nemo
There are many “tangible” results of our sessions too that I didn’t anticipate in the beginning.
- I have changed my daily schedule completely, optimised my normal day at work and after work activities and that helped me to create a lot of space for my passion – art and design.
- I’ve created a road map for myself. That was the most difficult thing actually – to realise what you want and where you want to be and WHO you are. The very first session with Nemo helped me a lot to figure it out WHO I am and WHAT I WANT. Now I’ve created a plan for myself and a clear journey for the next few years, a journey that I know I will truly enjoy.
- In these 2 months, I’ve made a huge breakthrough. From the person who was only dreaming to become an artist one day, I’ve become a person who actually IS an artist already! I have accomplished a lot. Most importantly, I’ve started created my art work on a bigger scale. For the first time in my life, I have sold two paintings which found their home in the heart of Singapore (I would never believe it)! I’ve finished a few digital courses about art and design and gained new software skills. I’ve started sharing my passion with the word in social media.
- I have started my career transition. And I no longer see my current job as an obstacle, but as a platform for career transition. I see it as a place full of opportunities to enhance my artistic skills on my way to a moment when I can fully sustain as a designer. And I use every day at work as a chance to improve my artistic skills or to learn something that can help to in building my own brand.
It all happened in 2 months from the 1st session with Nemo! It’s even hard to believe. A few months ago, I couldn’t even imagine that I’d be selling my artwork under my own brand in a few months! I always had an excuse: I don’t have time, no one would buy it, I don’t have a studio for painting, I can’t do digital art because I don’t have skills, I need to get a proper degree in fine arts, etc.
The Possibilities I’m Pursuing As a Result of All This
So exciting, and it’s only the beginning! Nemo made me realised that literally anything is possible to achieve if you have a true passion. There is a lot more in my nearest plans: website launch, merchandizing, personal studio, my first ever exhibition in SEA and much more!
We used to think that our happy future and the moment than your dream comes true is too far, but in fact it’s much closer than you think. It doesn’t mean you won’t have to work hard on your personal development, but it just important to realise that you have everything to create the best future for yourself and there is no point for you to wait. If you start today, tomorrow you are already one day ahead from where you are now.
If you feel like you got lost and can’t figure it out your way in this life, you need to meet Nemo to truly understand the power that he has. He reads your mind between the lines and I’m sure you will discover a lot about yourself even at the very first session with him. He won’t give you the answers, but he will make you find these answers, because you are the only one who knows what you want and how you want it to be.
Sessions with Nemo are always fun and joy. It’s absolutely unique experience that I would strongly recommend to anyone. He knows how to open you up and the outcome of your session is always something you would never expect. He is very supportive and he will celebrate with you all the small successes on your way up. I’ve got lost of inspiration from him. And he always shows you a different way to look at the most desperate situation. If I had to sum up the experience that I had with Nemo in one word that you be “PROGRESS”. Because things are going very fast for me now, and it would never be this way without those life-changing conversations with Nemo.
I feel extremely lucky that I met Nemo. Thank you, Nemo, you are truly gifted! I owe you a life because nothing matters more and nothing feels better than being the better version of yourself and follow your dream every day!
