Decisions, decisions...

When you walk up to any counter to order food or a drink, it is possible to become overwhelmed with the number choices and the options associated with them. A lot of us know what we want, but when given too many options, we freeze. For many, we default to what we know we like from past experiences.

I have experienced this myself and witnessed it with many friends. With so many options, I generally find something I have had before. To break this cycle, I now stand back and look at all the options in front of me to really take it all in. That risk of trying something entirely fresh invigorates me.

How and where can you try something new?

Three Sheets to the Wind

Maintaining your sight on the goal can be difficult, especially in uncharted waters with a squall coming on. The lines can come loose on the sail and leave it flapping in the breeze leaving you meandering on the whim of wind and tide.

This is a moment of action to retie the ropes, make a course correction and venture on.

What are some ways you get back on track?

Fork it

Okay. You have reached a point in your life and need to make a decision. It could be about anything: career, relationships, health and fitness. Is it weighing you down, holding you back? Welcome to the proverbial fork in the road.

Which way to turn could be on a sign right in front of you, or your gut is nagging at you to go one way while your brain thinks it is the opposite.

The decision on which direction is often difficult, and I am here to help you choose the path you truly deserve.

It may mean going off road.

A bit of history

My path to becoming a life coach started when I delved deeper into the study of martial arts.
I was relatively fresh out of college, recently single and my weight was pushing the deuce. I had to do something, pronto!
I had taken some Tae Kwon Do in high school and touched on it again in college, but I needed something different.

As fate would have it, a new school opened up literally blocks from home and I stopped in to check it out.
Long story short, I joined and began training in Jun Fan - Jeet Kune Do Concepts, which is the art and philosophy of Bruce Lee.
The major thing that Bruce Lee stressed was it’s all on you. You have the power and drive to make the change you want to see. This journey is not made in a vacuum, however, and we do seek guidance from others.

This philosophy touched me most and I started asking myself questions. You know, the big ones like, “Who am I?” and “What can I do to improve myself?” Over time, those questions came up again with people I was talking with by way of me asking them. I found the conversations were boarding on life altering, and after some period of time I heard some have been. A simple conversation opened up the possibilities, and I was happy to be a part of that transition.

I moved along with a few careers and was never really satisfied with any of them. No surprise as over half of working Americans are not pleased with their jobs either.

When I found myself at that moment of change, I made the leap. I re-evaluated who I am and decided quite quickly to become a certified life coach. I already had the ability to ask the questions and it just needed to be taken to 11.

I look forward to clarifying people’s goal and guiding them along the path of their choosing!
