Your midlife is your chance to re-purpose your life
& find new meaning

You know what they say about life beginning in your 40s, right? Well, it’s true! Pitkin, who wrote the highly influential book “Life begins at 40” (back in 1932), never imagined that this work would have such an impact that, nearly 90 years later, the phrase still holds true. Being in my 40s myself, and having gone through different career transitions in the last two years, I consider myself the right person to facilitate this change.

The time for a change is now for many people in their 40s. The reasons are many. You may be entering a new career or wish to do so, your children are already adults, or you regret not following your desires, dreams, and life purpose. Your daily chores and everyday life can make achieving these goals challenging. But let me tell you this: I’ve known many people who have taken on the world at 40 and have never looked back. All you need is a mental toolkit, which I can provide and hold you accountable to.

My story...

My midlife was approaching, and I knew everything would be okay. But then I realised that my job could be better, I needed more time for my hobbies, and (worst of all) I had totally forgotten all about my lifelong dreams and passions! At that point, with the help of coaching books, I had a breakthrough and improved in all areas of my life! And as I began working with other life coaches, I gained all the clarity I needed. I came face to face with my limiting beliefs and “rules”, I overcame my roadblocks and worked on my personality to become a better person. It was during this period that I studied the art of coaching, practised for many hours and gained many certifications. As a certified Life Coach, Mindset Coach, Solution-Focused Coach & Transformational Coach I am here to help you get the same benefits I got! Because as I say each one of us is born with great potential and deserves to get unstuck and use it. Including you… Yes, you.

It’s interesting that in so many self-help books, the authors describe how dissatisfied they were with their careers, surroundings, and lives before they made a change? Well, I am afraid I don’t have such a story to share simply because I was satisfied with my job and life at the time. I had a decent routine, a decent income, a decent lifestyle. But did you notice what I just repeated, not once but three times? Decent!

I just knew I could achieve more. 

I know what you’re going to ask next: how did you know? We all have dreams and passions from a young age. I’m not talking about far-fetched descriptions of dream houses with fountains and artificial waterfalls (yes, some of us were pretty imaginative as kids!) but about the spark we all possess: for some of us it means writing a book and leave our footprint behind, for others, it is to learn a foreign language or enrol on a cooking class!

That’s what happened to me: when I reached my 40s, I realised that this is how my life is going to be from now on: decent. But is this what I really wanted? Does it mean I will never be able to write a book, start studying about human behaviour, have my own business?

Well, guess what. Within the next two years, I began reading more self-help books, watching motivational videos and then the lockdown happened and it was then when it struck me: I have to stop being passive about all these things and make a change! Sure reading books, watching videos, attending online events was useful. But I needed to take action!

During this time, I committed to writing my book for between one and two hours per day. I stopped going out every single weekend and partying for no reason and, with the money I saved, I enrolled on a life coaching course. Soon after, I took the plunge and quit my job, despite my friends’ passionate warnings against such a decision! Despite my reluctance, I began my own teaching business. 

Was it hard? A bit, but the hard part had mostly to do with changing my mindset and not the actual process of doing these things. Once my mindset had shifted, I was on auto-pilot mode. 

And the best thing: I did this from the comfort of my home, without having to leave my physical comfort zone. If you are one of these people who does not want to travel, move to a new location, or generally change your physical location, the power of the internet could assist you. There are countless university courses, TED talks, and YouTube videos available. It’s easier to fall into the never-ending trap of consuming information without taking action, and this is often procrastination in disguise!

That’s where I come in. As a certified coach, I can help you find your true passion, clarify your priorities and set goals. Also, a coach can uncover limiting beliefs and roadblocks that are stopping you, help you shift your mindset, and design an action plan with you, ensuring that you actually follow it.

Testimonials

"I would like to recommend Constantine Samartzis as a Coach for anyone who is struggling with any issue which may be holding them back in life or affecting their productivity.
I went to Constantine with a personal attribute issue that was very important to me. The only time I had dared share it, another coach laughed it off as no big deal which caused me internal pain. This was a big deal to me! Since then, I hadn’t felt comfortable sharing it with any other person, especially in a coaching situation.
... Thanks to him and that session, I feel the issue is a non-issue now, or at least fast becoming a non-issue with the skills I’ve learned in dealing with it.
Constantine is the perfect Coach for anyone who needs a mentor, a guide or advocate to help them overcome obstacles keeping them stuck or keeping them from progressing. He is understanding, knowledgeable with plenty of life experience from which to draw upon, dedicated to helping his client achieve their goals, capable and competent in the skills he has worked to learn, is able to discern his clients moods and feelings, and he is so kind, warm, and compassionate! Thank you, Constantine !"

Yes, I received my primary coaching certifications from the Universal Coach Institution, having attended ICF-accredited live practice sessions and courses. Nevertheless, sometimes in life coaching it is the experience that counts, and I believe that having coached people all over the world has been invaluable. Not to mention that lifelong learning is a prerequisite for life coaching credentials, which is why I keep up to date with the latest research and techniques by attending live workshops, online webinars, and classes.
