I have goals in my life I don’t think I can achieve- can you help?
First thing is I will do is help you identify, clarify, verify your goals and desires to ensure you are crystal clear on what you want.
Then we will dig into what is stopping you from having it now, and discover what you need to make it start happening right now. We will then make it real in some tangible way.
Finally, I will provide you a customized subconscious repatterning system to help guide you to the goals and outcomes you are seeking on a deep internal level.
This is of course my own blend of science, and intuition and life experience has been helping people and learning for myself my entire adult life
I believe that any desire you have right now came with your ability to have it! Inside of you is all the ability, strength and courage that you need to achieve your ambitions and dreams. And your belief is the magic key that opens the door to all that is possible for you!
How will you work with me to help me change my life for the better?
The first step is to make sure that your goals are really in alignment with what you really, really want, and the right areas for you to focus on at this time in your life. From there, we’ll work together to develop a plan of action that will move you in the right direction, until you achieve your aspirations. If I can do it, anyone can!
We’ll start out by having a conversation over the phone or Skype, for up to an hour, to discover what you really want and what really drives you. I want to know exactly what it is that makes you feel alive, at your most motivated and powerful. Some people may want more money, more love, or a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Others may simply feel that there is something stopping them from achieving the success they deserve.
My role is to work with you to find the answers to some of your questions, even if you aren’t quite sure what those questions are right now.
Often a simple exercise or conversation can reveal fundamental truths about who you are, and what direction you would like to move in. This is a time when there are no restrictions in your life, and everything is possible.
Then we’ll put together a workable action plan mapping out the steps you need to take to achieve your goals. We’ll schedule a series of conversations over a few weeks. I’ll provide you with feedback about your actions plan, evaluate your current situation and help you decide on your best way forward. I take a holistic view of your current life situation, and together we plan the actions you can take to move forward.
How do I know if I am ready for change?
Well, a great first step is that you are here reading this page. I see that as a sign that you’re ready for more in your life. Honestly, readiness for change is different for everyone. However, the usual indication is that you are so fed up with your current situation that you have a real willingness and readiness to trust and transform. You need to take real action if you’re going to transform your circumstances – just thinking about it won’t achieve anything at all.
Hey it’s never easy to commit to change, and it takes a lot of commitment and hard work, but it is always worth it and I’ll be by your side cheering you on! We’ll work together to remove your self-doubts and barriers, working through issues that block your progress. As Michael Jordan once said – “If you can’t go over it, go under it. If you can’t go under it, go around it!” Nothing will stop you from achieving your dreams, when you really commit to them.
Who is the most inspirational person you’ve worked with?
All of my clients are brilliant, inspirational and awe-inspiring in their own way. However, I worked with one particular client who will stay with me for the rest of my days. She was based in Sweden, and was suffering from a terminal illness. I worked with her briefly and she went on to form a support group for people suffering from terminal illnesses like herself. All while she was losing her own battle with her illness, she gave all she had to help other people. Knowing that I inspired her to do this despite her own struggle….well that touches me in a way that few things ever have…
Who has been your main mentor and source of inspiration?
I have several sources of inspiration but here are three who made a huge, huge impact on me! The first one is Richard Bach, who wrote the amazing book ‘Jonathan Livingstone Seagull’. That book taught me that it is possible to achieve anything, no matter who you are, and what experiences you have had. It showed me that it is possible to beat to my own drummer and that being an outsider can be a truly great gift and opportunity!
Another person I really appreciate is Wayne Dyer, who in his first book taught me that all my emotions and feelings are completely within my control. This was a very new concept to me when I was a young man. No-one has the power to make us feel sad, or low, or anxious – it is only ourselves who can make those feelings happen, which means we have the power to make them stop.
A third eternal source of inspiration for me is Dr. Leo Buscaglia, who taught me so much about being human, about relationships, life and love through his wonderful books, lectures and life (look him up on YouTube for some really amazing lectures and PBS specials he presented).
What do you charge?
My fees depend on many circumstances and they range from free to several thousands of dollars per month when I am working with a business or organization. Regardless, I generally require my clients commit to a three-month period of working with me, as without your complete commitment we won’t realize the results you are looking to achieve. I appreciate that many people do not have the resources to work with me personally 1-on-1, so I do offer free group coaching calls, newsletters and my blog to assist you too.
I’m not based in the US – can you still work with me?
Yes! I have worked internationally for the last twenty years. With today’s communications capabilities being so strong, your being in a different country is no barrier to working together. Time zones can sometimes be challenging though so keep in mind I am based in Los Angeles, California and operate on Pacific Standard Time.
I want help with my personal life, not just business. Can you still help?
Absolutely. For a person to achieve happiness and fulfillment, it’s important to consider all aspects of their current situation holistically. If you have a great personal life but your business affairs are not going well, you won’t achieve happiness. In the same way, you could be a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, but still have huge areas of your life that could be improved. My philosophy is that the principles of happiness are the same, regardless of what aspect of life you are exploring, at that moment.
Could you sum up what you do in your work?
I am known as a ‘Professional Encourager’, this means that I become your personal cheerleader, your coach, a mentor and a friend who walks with you on your journey.
My process goes something like this first and foremost I listen to you and your needs. If you can tell me what you want, I can tell you how to get it.
If you don’t know what you want than through a process of facilitated introspection I help you discover it. I rely heavily on my own inner guidance for how I can help you and ever client I work with.
What can you teach me?
1. YOU are a walking talking miracle making creator!
2. HOW to create and manifest a life you will love on your own terms.
3. LOVE for yourself and every moment you’ve lived and will ever live.
I’ve also have an enormous volume of life experience having invested over twenty years helping people both personally and professionally. I promise if I can’t help you – I will tell you and try to refer you to someone who can help you!
My partner and I want to see you as a couple – is this possible?
Yes. I usually support people on a one-to-one basis, but if you are seeking support as a partnership I am more than happy to explore working with you as a couple. I also work with small groups and teams.
Is there any upper or lower age limit for people wanting your support?
No, if you are breathing, have a pulse and we can communicate, I am willing to support you in your life. My youngest coaching client so far has been 12, my oldest 74!
I’m scared that if I ask you for support, you may make me give up the things I depend on to cope with my life at the moment?
Look -I cannot make you do anything, you are in total control of whatever actions you do or do not take based on our time together. I’m not here to tell you how to live your life, I am here to support you in making the changes you wish to make. I am willing to help you write a new script for your life – one that is more fulfilling, empowering and fantastic than the one you are currently using.
We’ll work together to plot out a new way of living that is in total alignment with the life you truly want to live. Warning!: During this process you could find that there are things and people who will fall out of your life but that happens most naturally as you advance forward in designing your new life .
Please know from the depths of my soul that I wish you the the best of life, the best of love….the VERY BEST OF EVERYTHING! Life is GOOD…Believe it and you will see it!
