What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind. -Buddha
The average person has 60,000 thoughts a day streaming through their awareness. What you are observing today is based on where your attention and focus were yesterday. The huge movement of mindfulness and meditation is based on attention-training. It is the practice of training your mind to focus on what you want rather than what you do NOT want. Your inner voice is the most frequent voice you hear all day long and it is shaping your life.
This is why coaches start off with the same practice- doing an inventory or a summary of your belief systems and thought patterns. What do you focus on daily? What are your perspectives on this situation or that topic or that relationship? People go to coaches because there is something they want to change in their life. What people are realizing is that it's their own thinking patterns and belief systems that they want to challenge and maybe change.
Your inner world is creating your outer world based on where your mind rests and where your attention flows. The good news is that you are in absolute control of your own perspectives, beliefs, and focus. The bad news is that you can no longer blame everyone else for things that you want to change. You are not a victim waiting for adversity to happen. You are a creator who is in control of your experience because you are in control of your thoughts, your emotions, and your focus.
I'm not against therapy if you are dealing with some serious mental health issues; however, what most people are looking for is a partner to coach them through making some life changes. So whether it's career, relationship, health, or any area of your life- this person will focus on the present and setting goals for the future.
As coaches, we work with clients who want to change something about their life. We help them sift and sort through what it is they want to give them clarity. We may discuss the past to review your current belief systems, but reactivating painful memories from the past is what therapists do, not coaches. As a coach, stories from the past are just that-stories. In the words of Carl Jung "You are what YOU choose to become." Our focus is the present and the future. Where are you now? Where do you want to be? Let's devise an action plan and steps to get there. Coaches help you work on the 'what' and the 'how-to' part of personal development.
So whether it's your physical health, eating habits, toxic thinking patterns, emotional health, social skills, relationship management, and a variety of other things that people want to change- there are coaches available everywhere.
We are offering online courses as well so that we may reach anyone and everyone who is ready to work on themselves to live their best life possible.
We love you guys and hope to see you in one of our courses or workshops soon!
