Someone once pointed out that in every opera, the climax comes when the hero or heroine meets a tragic death. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet takes her life. In Carmen, she is stabbed. In Tosca, the heroine jumps from Castle San Angelo into the Tiber River to her death. In one production the woman playing the lead role was athletic enough to jump off the stage, giving the impression that she was jumping to her death. Below was a mattress for her to land on, but it was a hard landing. She talked to the crew and they in turn added another mattress, but it didn’t make much difference. In the final production of the opera, without telling her, the crew switched the mattresses for a trampoline. In the final scene of the final production, she sings her solo, she jumps…and to her astonishment and the audience’s, she bounces back.

Life is sometimes like that, not only the props but also the scripts are changed and we are not able to bounce back. Things are not what we expected or wanted or planned. Sometimes we may not even know what we really want. But, what we do know is that something is amiss.

That’s where a Life Coach comes in. A certified Life Coach is professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results. A Life Coach can hope you “bounce” back to wholeness.

A Life Coach is to a psychologist as a personal trainer is to a doctor. If you broke a leg you would see a doctor. If you were physically strong and healthy but wanted to go to the next level of fitness you would see a personal trainer. Life coaching is not therapy.

Coaches don’t work on past-based issues or traumas. Life coaches are not psychologists or psychotherapists, Life Coaches focus on the present and what the clients goals are for the future. We help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life they really want. Most life coaching clients are healthy, successful people who might be a bit stuck or simply want to make a big change in their lives and need the support of their own personal coach to do so.

If you were well, but wanted more out of life, felt like something was missing, weren’t reaching your potential, had relationship, business, or personal concerns…then you may need a Life Coach.

It is never too late to dream a dream…to become the person you want to be.

Do you want to improve your relationships, become more confident, make a career change, or gain clarity about what you want and how to achieve your goals and be more successful?

Albert Einstein said,

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

A Life Coach helps you look at some things differently, with a different perspective. A Life Coach is there to help you to re-focus your thinking and establish your own motivation for change.

Sometimes we may not even recognize the possibilities for our life. We may need help, a sounding board for helping to overcome obstacles, fears and insecurities.

Life coaching is a synergistic relationship between an accredited Life Coach and a client designed to tap into your full potential. Just as Olympic athletes wouldn’t think of training without the added insight, objective perspective and enthusiastic support of an athletic coach, many of todays’ most successful business leaders, professionals, executives, entrepreneurs and CEOs use the services of a Life Coach to take their lives, careers or businesses to the next level.

If there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, there is room for life coaching. Not only will your life coach help you close the gap, your life coach will help you break through your limited beliefs and challenge you to think bigger.

Why does life coaching work?

Synergy between the Life Coach and client creates momentum and Enthusiasm. Life coaching provides a structure of support to help you quickly break through blocks so that more is more accomplished with less struggle and less effort. In essence, your Life Coach is an objective, positive supporter.

To sum it up… why do people hire a life coach? Because they want more, they want to grow, and they want it easier. It’s as simple as that.

What to look for in your Mentor

As a long time mentor, please allow me to share some thoughts on mentoring.
I have loved living my life as a serious, successful, and serial entrepreneur. I have been fortunate in finding the perfect mentor at the most needed time. I was willing to watch, listen and learn.

How to make an impact

Alice Waters, the founder of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California, didn’t plan to revolutionize the way people cook, eat, and think about food. But in 1965, when she returned to the U.S. from France, she did know what she wanted. She wanted food that was fresh and that tasted good—like the food she had eaten in France.
