“Trust is not something that is proven or earned. It is inevitable when you look beyond your own fear and past your over-reactions, when you acknowledge the good in another and appreciate their strengths – those things they believe nobody else can see.” – Amy Larson
Loving, healthy relationships take effort and commitment. You deepen that bond through shared experiences, building a track record of honesty and care and all of the little things that add up to make you each value your partner and your commitment.
When you think about it, no relationship…
Being a life coach is a dream career. But in the beginning, it can feel like a nightmare.
You might love what you do, but the results you’ve created aren’t anywhere close to what you would love.
As a result, you experience imposter syndrome, pressure from family or friends, or low income flow. And as lonely as the path may feel, you are not alone.
There are other life coaches just like you who blame themselves for their limiting paradigms and feelings of longing and discontent.
But it’s not their fault or…
Find out what style fits your personality and how to adopt the best qualities in leadership.
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” – Warren Bennis
Every leader has a style. Some of you probably borrow a little something from many leadership styles.
There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, some leadership styles are exactly right for certain scenarios but not excellent for others.
Here’s a simple truth: no matter what position you currently hold, you are a leader. Even if you’re just …
“Success is liking who you are, what you do, and how you do it.” – Maya Angelou
When you run your own coaching practice, one of the most beautiful things you’ll experience is a level of freedom you’ve likely never experienced before.
Successful life coaches show up as the highest, most authentic version of themselves, decide what they want to offer, and design how they want to serve their clients.
As lovely as it sounds to have all that power and freedom, you may also feel a heavy responsibility in delivering an…
In resolving conflicts, you can actually improve your bond going forward
“Conflict is the beginning of consciousness.” – M. Esther Harding
Every relationship is going to have friction. It’s not a matter of whether you’ll have conflict. It’s how you communicate with each other through those issues that determines the quality of the relationship that you have.
Working through your conflicts in a healthy way will actually lead to a closer bond in the relationship. A conflict by itself isn’t a terrible thing. It’s the way you handle it that counts.…
One of the fastest, easiest, and most effective ways to build a successful coaching practice is through group life coaching.
Group coaching can be an incredibly powerful tool for coaches who want to make a bigger impact by working with more people. But most beginner life coaches decide to do it alone or rush into it with little guidance, which usually results in undercharging and overworking.
You could still be thinking about whether group coaching is a service you’d want to offer in the first place. After all, that would mean attracting more clients…
How to overcome stress and fear when the situation seems too immense.
“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” – Dalai Lama XIV
What if you feel you’re facing a problem that you can’t fix? If your issue seems absolutely insurmountable, I want you to know that you’re not alone.
We’ve all lived through uncertainty and situations…
The love you get is directly proportional to the love you give yourself
Today I want to talk about how to love yourself more. I think this is especially important because we’re not always kind to ourselves.
I know I can be harder on myself than I am on anyone else. And while it can be good to hold yourself to a high standard, that doesn’t mean making yourself feel bad.
Your high standards are meant to inspire you! Not drag you down.
If you’re looking to bring more love…
Let go of the dreams that you’ve outgrown and move into your purpose.
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – Les Brown
We all have dreams. For many people, dreams are simply wishes that they want. Brave Thinking® teaches us how to take those dreams from a “someday” wish to realization.
As Brave Thinkers®, we know how to use the tools to take our dreams from thoughts to action. But sometimes we get so caught up in our lives and goals that…
In honor of International Women’s Day (IWD) and Women’s History Month, we’re reminded that we all play a part in creating the vision of a world that celebrates diversity, equality, and inclusion. And while we have an entire day dedicated to honoring the achievements of women across the globe, their stories have the power to inspire us for a lifetime.
So today, we’re going to celebrate IWD and the Women Leaders who have forged the path towards increased visibility and growth.
I’ll be sharing my favorite inspirational woman leader and how she taught me where we…
