Best practices to keep healthy relationships in a digital world.
“We live in a digital world, but we’re fairly analog creatures.” – Omar Ahmed
We live in a digital world. There is no denying or changing that.
I see posts and news articles talking about the death knell of real communication and connection because everyone is attached to their phones. And I laugh. Because the people writing those posts are probably using their phones.
Here’s the thing, social media has changed the way we live and communicate. It’s true! But…
How to identify stress symptoms and find the blessings in stressful situations.
“To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.” – Leonard Bernstein
I love the Leonard Bernstein quote above because it highlights something that we don’t often talk about — certain stress can actually be beneficial.
Sometimes we perform really well under pressure and reach unbelievable goals on tight deadlines. Of course, most of the time, living highly stressful lives, and not building in time to recover and rejuvenate is not good for our…
“Directions are instructions given to explain how. Direction is a vision offered to explain why.” — Simon Sinek
It’s easy to look up “how” to become a life coach. A quick search on Google will give you hundreds upon millions of search results in the form of directions, instructions, and best practices.
But only one person can tell you “Why”.
When you answer the call to become a life coach, you make the leap. And you are the only one who can bring…
Learn how affirmations can help you manifest material wealth.
“Money does not buy you happiness, but lack of money certainly buys you misery.” – Daniel Kahneman
Have you ever noticed that most stories about money make it seem like it’s negative to want it?
Think of movie characters, famous books, even in religious lessons and morals you heard as a child — the rich are painted as negative. The poor are painted as good.
That line of thinking has given many of us false paradigms about money.
“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…
