The simple fact that you can do more if you have more to give rests itself on your own realization of what you want to leave as your legacy.

If you are not happy. If you are struggling to pay your bills. If you are finding yourself saying "I wish I could afford that" or "I know what I want but I don't know how to get it." Then you are not in a position to help others nor work on your legacy. You are in survival mode and must (and can) only work on yourself. Everything else will need to wait.

When you can accept that that is your current position and have within you the need to change that, then and only then can you make any progress. But this is where people get frustrated. They know that they want to change their situation but they don't know how to do it. That is when a coach is your best option.

I have worked with many people who have reached this frustration place in their lives. They know what they want. They know that what they have done isn't working for them. They feel the pressures of every day to be more than what they are. They have people around them that demand their help and when they try to help them they feel that they are personally being taken advantage of so they feel dejected and miserable. These feelings can lead into depression, argumentativeness, flights of fancy disregard, overspending, or worse.

If you have had any of those thoughts, then reach out to me. I can help you to get back on track to reach your own goals and needs. When you are comfortable in your own life, you will be better able and willing to help others too . . . and that leads directly to your legacy.

"I'm just not good enough." It's something we therapists, counselors, and coaches hear all too often from our clients. In fact, it's probably the most prevalent belief in our society: number one on the hit parade of limiting beliefs about self.

The cognitive approach is to refute the belief in an effort to convince the client that he or she is, indeed, "good enough" -- an acceptable human being. I myself have done that. I've urged clients to list their positive attributes. I've reminded them that they are not axe murderers. I've had them stand in front of a mirror, as motivational speaker Louise Hay recommended, and say kind and loving things to themselves. Sometimes these methods help. Sometimes they don't.

I just wanted to spread the word about Life Coaching and what it can do to help just about anyone. No, not every coach is suited for every client but the right coach/client combination is such powerful tool.

I hear different variations of the following questions and statements a lot: "What can a coach do for me?", "I can't afford to pay a coach!", "What does SHE know that I don't know?", "I don't need a stinking' Coach!" OK, well I tossed the word "stinking'" in there (smile) but I do know there are many people who could benefit from the power of coaching but feel they don't need it.
