Guilt – The Useless Emotion

guilt-compass-reset-life-coaching

There are two sides to the emotion of guilt. On the one side we learn to wield it heavily to get what we want but on the other side it works against us. It can and often does immobilize and prevent us from making changes that allow us to move forward. In short, feeling guilty […]

O.C.D.

ocd-life-coaching-compass-reset

Years ago I became a running joke in my family at large because I am slightly compulsive when it comes to order. I was called, and not necessarily fondly, Miss Action To Do or Miss Action Can Do. While it was certainly meant as a quasi-insult/compliment, I was not bothered in the least by it. […]

When Babies Cry

During opening meditation at Sunday’s service a baby cried out, breaking the silence of meditation, which made me smile. While it made me smile I know it had the opposite effect on so many church goers. Their feelings are that babies should be in the back of the church sitting in that little closed up […]

Rules, Boundaries and Limitations

Mention the name Cesar Millan and practically everyone will say, “oh yeah, he’s the dog whisperer.” In the height of Cesar’s television days, I watched each of his shows with rapt attention, trying to figure out how to curb the minor but irritating issues our rescued Labrador exhibited. His message was super clear; the issue […]

The Magic to Happiness

If I could actually create The magical list on how to find happiness, I would be a gajillionaire. Truth is, what would work for some people simply would not work for others. Picking up a self-help book or listening to any coach eventually leads to the fact that happiness consists of a multitude of other […]

Overcoming Adversity

Adversity is not something most of us actively seek out. In most cases, we have absolutely no control over the nature or event troubling us and it is unbiased as to whether or not we are young or old, rich or poor, famous or not. But, overcoming adversity is something all of us have to […]

Re-Defining Purpose

For the past five years, those two words have caused me more angst than I care to think about. Yet, here I am thinking about them. I have found that after losing a child, their meaning becomes ever more poignant. Evidently, I am not alone. In my research on death and the meaning of life, […]

Wholeness

I could elaborate on wholeness in the areas of religious, spiritual, mental and emotional balance. But the truth is, regardless of which aspect of wholeness is chosen, wholeness itself speaks to balance. Simply put, a proportionate balance of mind, body and spirit is gained when we acknowledge the components of our world as they are, both good and bad, real and imagined, emotional and mental, as well as physical and nonphysical. We need to understand that there is a synergistic quality to the sum of the parts that create who we are as individuals, and that that wholeness is greater than the sum of all our parts. We do not deny the various aspects of self but embrace and learn from them. It is a personal evolution of accepting who we are without involving our ego. Therefore, wholeness is not some otherworldly exhibit of oneness. To the contrary, to establish wholeness, the individual must separate itself from internal and external influences. The hope is that wholeness is created when we figure out how we are connected to all of these influences and accept them, both good and bad. Regardless of the circumstances, one should gain a greater sense of well being. Benefits of trying to achieve wholeness and living a balanced life are: a boosted immune system, an increase in positive thoughts, a reduction of anxiety, increased focus and concentration and an increase of gray matter in the brain. So you see, seeking wholeness and achieving balance are both positive things and speaking in real world terms, set you on a path in the direction for achieving more. I see a life coach basically as a wholeness mentor who helps you to develop strategies to connect individual purposes to personal fulfillment of needs in order to create happiness. Having challenges figuring out where to start on your journey? Call a life coach.

Finding Balance

Creating a balance in all that we do, should set us squarely on the track to finding what happiness means to each of us. But balance is elusive an elusive little creature. Our fast-paced world of work, school, sports, meetings, social events, volunteering, and always being “connected” to the grid, makes finding that balance nearly […]
