Time for a Change.

Coaching is a journey that exists through both conversation and action.

It usually beings at the point and time in your life that you see or experience something that:

  1. Isn’t working
  2. Is working, but could be better
  3. Has worked up until now to get you where you are now, but won’t get you where you want to go
  4. Is working for someone else, in their life... and you’ve experienced it such that you are touched, moved, or inspired, and compelled to take action toward having something similar in your life. 

While change IS possible on your own, I invite you to consider a few things:

  • Your view of your life, and hence your ability to change it, is based on your experience of the world. This has been formulated over all the years and decades of your life, and shaped by the choices you’ve made. If you could have done it any better up until now, you would have, right? 
  • All of the actions you’ve taken up until now have created a certain momentum in your life. You’re on a certain trajectory. And there is a very good chance that you’ll continue on that trajectory, unless you make a strong, conscious effort, serious commitment and investment in changing it. 
  • You can’t observe yourself living your life while you’re living it. While you might be able to tell something is off or not right, you can’t live it while also being the impartial observer, or know what’s needed to change it. It’s why professional athletes work with coaches, and why clients hire me. 
  • There is a massive difference between being interested and being committed. While you might see things around you that aren’t working so well, change won’t happen with a casual interest or awareness. That’s why New Year’s resolutions fail before the end of January each year. 
  • There are things that you’ve probably tried to change repeatedly in your life. You think to yourself each time that you should be able to change them. You’ve even committed to doing it… and yet, decades, disappointments, and dollars later, you’re still stuck with the same problem.  

Do any of these resonate with you? If so, you may want to consider coaching.

Finding Freedom

Before I tell you more about coaching with me, let me tell you what it isn't. It's not a pre-designed course, nor is it a program that I teach you. There is no set curriculum, process to undertake, or steps to follow. There is no pre-defined reading list, nor is there a set of assignments to follow or complete.

Your curriculum is your life. You bring that with you to every session we have together. Whatever area we're working on - relationships, family, career, job, health, mental/emotional state -  my program is based on helping you unlock those areas in which you feel trapped, stuck, or anything less than free. You are an integral part of that process, you, as the leader of your own life.

We meet together for calls every other week for a couple of hours, and between these sessions you will be “doing the work”... living your life, increasing your awareness, implementing habits, doing applicable “homework” that will help you progress forward.

Our time together starts with a minimum commitment of 6 months, but most of my clients work with me far longer. Why so long? This work isn’t easy and it takes time to see the things you need to see, do the things you need to do, to have what you really want. There are no shortcuts.

And why hire me? Why do all this work when it takes time, effort, and investment?

Because coaching with me offers you the possibility of FREEDOM.

  • Freedom from the limitations and beliefs that have you stuck where you are today.
  • Freedom from the self-imposed prison created by measuring, competing, and judging self & others.
  • Freedom from the fear, anxiety, worry, doubt, and frustration that comes from living in the future and past, rather than the present.
  • Freedom to live in possibility, to experience knowing that you are enough exactly as you are.
  • Freedom to have the life you’ve always wanted, always dreamed of, and to be the person you’ve always known that you could be!

Like it or not, we’re all on a journey through life that is anything but linear. Often, its boundaries are defined by the accidents, mistakes, missteps, and wrong turns we make along the way. Though it’s not a journey we can opt out from, the choice we all get to make is,”How?”

For me, that answer has always been to experiment around the boundaries for each of the five realms (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and financial) - to play with, explore, test, question, and disrupt the status quo. To always be growing.

Oughta Coulda Woulda Shoulda

“I oughta have, do, or be…” Really? If you oughta, you woulda. But you don’ta, so whatcha talkin’ about? We all have have part of us that thinks we deserve more than what we have. We don’t. We have exactly what we’re committed to. And the sooner you stop living in that fantasyland and start telling yourself the truth, the sooner you get unstuck… … And the sooner you can get on with creating the version of you that you’ve always dreamed of!

Want to make a difference? Make it PERSONAL!

All the talk about how shitty the world is – how we’re disconnected, divided, polarized, angry, impatient, unforgiving, etc – is NOT making the world a better place. Sure, it’s raising awareness. But ask yourself a question… ARE YOU ALREADY AWARE?If the answer is YES… then you don’t need to get more aware. You know what you need to do? Make it PERSONAL. What are YOU going to do. TODAY. To make it different in YOUR life, with YOUR spouse, with YOUR family, with YOUR colleagues.How are YOU going to be more patient, forgiving, understanding, kind, compassionate, vulnerable?When you get…

Acceptance is not an invitation to settle!

Do you find yourself in a constant state of “mediocre-ness”? Not that it’s bad to have a mediocre life… but it’s definitely not great, nor is it extraordinary. Are you okay that it’s mediocre? Or have you just accepted it… settled for it? Has your mediocre morass just become a habit? Because it doesn’t have to be this way. But to change it, you’re going to have to get some leverage over yourself. You’re going to have to magnify the area that is just okay and find how it really doesn’t work for you… the cost of it not being…

Do you wake up saying, Thank God It’s Monday? If not… why not? — You don’t have to actually change anything in the physical world to gain this mindset. It’s a MINDSET… that means it’s how you THINK. And how long does it take you to change your thinking? A split second. — That doesn’t mean you’ll all of a sudden WANT to. In fact, your protector/controller, your ego, will very likely tell you the opposite. There is an incredible draw to wallowing in the misery, pity, doubt, anxiety, fear, shame cloud that you’re in. — Don’t let it win….

TGIF? How about TGIM?

You spend 80% of your day working doing something that pays the bills… but brings you no joy, no satisfaction, no aliveness. Why? Because it’s the way you’ve always done it, you’re good at it, it’s easy. But happiness? I don’t think so. — What if you could spend 80% of your days doing something you loved, that happened to also be how you earned a living? — Who knows… perhaps instead of TGIF, it would be Thank Goodness It’s Monday! Imagine how one shift like that could change the course of your entire life. — I want you to…

Getting yourself UNstuck… it can be FUN and EASY!

Getting unstuck, especially in the moment, isn’t hard… it simply takes a willingness to try something different, to experiment, to shake things up, take a contrary action.

Stuck in a marriage or relationship? This vid’s for you!

😳 🤯 😢 😖I Are you secretly dealing with the pain, anxiety, loneliness, resentment, and powerlessness of a marriage or relationship that no longer serves you? — Do you feel trapped or stuck – perhaps because you have kids and you think it’s best for them if you just ride it out, together, in an unfulfilling and unloving marriage until at least they go away to college (and yet that’s still YEARS away)? — It doesn’t have to be that way. And you might not even have to split up to get what you want. — Anything is possible. ❤️…
