Tell me, what do you plan to do with your
one wild and precious life?
For the past ten years, I have been coaching clients on how to turn their aspirations into reality – how to create a meaningful and rewarding life for themselves. The challenge that my clients face is realizing that wanting and hoping to change or make something happen in their lives is not enough to get unstuck and move forward towards achieving their goals. We all need to remember how to use our ability to consciously influence our thoughts and behaviours – our self-leadership ability, in order to create what we perceive will make us feel fulfilled and happy in life.
We begin with developing our client’s self-leadership foundation – their self-esteem, self-respect, self-reliance, self-confidence, self-motivation and self-determination which are the qualities required to create a motivational momentum to make changes happen. This engages the magical qualities of integrity and courage which are required to believe in oneself and to face one’s fears. It also evokes dedication and decision-making – two qualities required to focus and commit to the process, and to believe in the endless possibilities and opportunities available to them. These essential qualities allow them the emotional way forward. Without these, no matter how much they want to make a specific change in their life, they actually believe they are incapable – powerless to do so, and therefore remain feeling stuck and unable to move forward in life.

Courage comes from within us, from our internal awareness – our values. Fear itself comes from our external awareness – our brain’s limbic system (emotional brain which supports a variety of functions including emotions, behaviours, motivation, etc.). In essence, fears are extrinsic stories and patterns we created or adopted from our families, friends, society as a whole. In fact, our emotional brain keeps repeating our fear patterns for a very simple reason – because it recorded those at a time we were challenged in life and every time it senses we are in similar situations, it wants to protect us by reminding us of the original emotion felt at that specific time. Agreeing with such patterns take us down the path of least resistance and hold us back in life. Recognizing these patterns for what they are may be difficult but with practice possible by reminding ourselves of our ability to consciously influence our thoughts and behaviours, and by establishing resilient boundaries supported by positive thinking and proactive language.
Asking yourself the following questions gets you going on the right path:
Knowing what I have at this very moment, what would I like instead?
Knowing how I feel at this very moment, how would I like to feel instead?
What do I need to let go of in my life?
What do I want to welcome in my life?
These types of questions and many more coupled with fun life coaching tools and your commitment and determination will have you create the kind of meaningful, rewarding and happy life you want.
Don’t do it alone.
Give yourself permission to ask for help.
You deserve to be happy in life. Everyone does.
It’s starts with you.
Don’t wait until tomorrow, invest in yourself today!
