Why Get a Coach?

“I’ve always battled with my career. I felt like I had no purpose and I never liked what I was doing. My jobs always ended in me either being let go from downsizing or I would get fired. My coach taught me that it’s not “what I do” for a living that matters it’s ¨how I am¨ about what I am doing that does. My coach is teaching me how to break my old habits and how important it is to challenge my doubts and fears. I realize that I truly create my world by what I think. I now have practices in place that stop me from going down a path of negativity and self-doubt. As I keep up the practices she taught me, they get better and better and so does my life.”
 — Beth Armstrong, events manager

So…why get a coach?

You –

  • Develop leadership skills and practices – for work and life!
  • You enhance your career and end up in the right place…
  • Get ongoing, impartial feedback that assures your growth!

 


Paradoxi and Dichotomies…

There is so much advice to be had in the world. Good advice and bad advice but if that was all there was to it, life wouldn’t be and feel so complex.  If life wasn’t so deep and multi-faceted, and after some reflection, you could probably fairly easily distinguish which advice is the true one for you in that moment.  But what about when two contradictory pieces of advice seem ...

Are You Same or Are You Different?

Everyone is searching for happiness. This way, we are all the same. Whether you believed the world was ending on May 21st or not. “Sama sama” it is called in Sanskrit.  Same same. It is certainly a better vantage point than, we’re different. One dictionary definition of the word “different” is “incompatible”. Others are “other” and “separate”. I sometimes, if not often, decide that I am separate.  That no one ...

….A different kind of love…

This post is about love.  The different kind.  I read something that struck a deep chord with me today.  About love.  That constancy is its very nature, with no dips.  It doesn’t fade because its source is ever new. I spoke to a few dear friends and family today; Patricia, Kenny, Lars…And the love bond that is there gets sparked every time we speak, so it is ever new. We ...

What About Shameless Self Promotion…

What about shameless self-promotion when you are looking for work? I have been grappling with the balance of just doing what I love and simply letting that love spread – and the concept of what I call shameless self-promotion.  And I have come to that there is a balance to strike. I really have a strong dislike for shameless self-promotion. I really do. I think it is preposterous, boastful and ...

Move your body – change your mind

...so I was thinking about what to write you and although I have had this insight before, it came over me again!  Which is that I can’t inspire if I am not inspired myself.  So I went to do some inspirational reading and remembered a nugget from Danforth’s old classic “I Dare You!”  (that I have to recommend with the caveat that it is dated and at times hokey as ...

The Places You Travel…

Your feeling state determines your experience of your quality of life. After all the buzz from Law of Attraction, The Secret, Abraham-Hicks and all the Vedic scriptures that came 5,000 years before them, I think we are in agreement on this one. That warrants an investigation into the places you travel to – in your mind. What we don’t always take into consideration are all the complex factors that lead ...

Patience is a verb.

This blog is about patience. Of which I have little. I remember being in second grade and my stepfather, patiently, trying to walk me through my math homework.  I threw a temper tantrum at the agonizing slowness of the process and demanded he just give me the answers.  Of course he didn’t but instead, patiently, explained that the point wasn’t to get through the exercises, but to incorporate the concepts ...

It’s OK to be needy…

I got a call recently from a woman who through many roundabout ways found me... She said she needed me.  Desperately. She spilled everything about why and after some tears too, we decided how to get her started and where to unravel the big mess she feels her life is in. Afterwards, I thought about people needing people. I think the word need gets a bad rap. Like being needy ...

When thinking of something negative, think of the opposite

... 

I have been reading and thinking about that great spiritual practitioners are those who have made a pledge…to eradicate all their negative states of mind in order to help bring ultimate happiness to others...

And that what enables us to deal with a difficult situation is our capacity to shift perspective, to view our situation from a different vantage point.  The great yogic sage Patanjali said it the best in ...

About Dreaming

Hi dear ones  - In my last post, I was sharing with you my first foray into live streaming with a new show called Streamin' & Dreamin'.  That made me think of dreaming.  Again. Having dreams.  And how much I allow myself to dream or not.  I noticed that I have a cap for my dreaming if I have had failures.  The year of 2010 goes down in history as ...
