A Life Coach gives people confidence and the ability to move forward in a positive manner in the areas of their life where they crave change.
Happiness is a decision. Those were the powerful words given to me one night long ago while I was in the midst of my own despair. That was 26 years ago. The words just came into my head and I have been both railing against them and evangelising them ever since.
The Think, Feel, Act Cycle, also known as the self-coaching model developed by Brooke Castillo, consists of five key components: circumstances, thoughts, feelings, actions, and results. It emphasizes that our thoughts, not external circumstances, determine our experiences. By becoming aware of and changing our thoughts, we can transform our emotions, behaviors, and outcomes, leading to a more positive life.
We spend so much of our time wanting to be somewhere else and absent from where we are right now. So many of our thoughts are either in the past, mulling over what has happened, regretting or trying to re-write the past. Or, our thoughts are focused on the future worrying about stuff still to happen and meeting our troubles halfway. We are missing out on the gift of the present.
OK. So yesterday I ran face-first into an ugly truth about myself. Truthfully, I was actually guided to the realisation by someone close to me and I thank them for it. I hope. Well. Yes. I thank them for pointing out a huge area of potential growth for me but I am a bit annoyed that it may give them an (undeserved) opportunity to feel smug and righteous. Defensive? Who me?
A tragedy is something that hopefully only occurs rarely or not at all in our lives or the lives of our loved ones. However, there are times when tragedy strikes close to home and we need to be there to support our loved ones. With so little experience at dealing with tragedy, thank goodness, there is little wonder that we may not know what to do or say to help when faced with it.
As we enter a new calendar year many of us take the opportunity to review the past year and set some goals for the year ahead. The internet and social media are filled with offers of free and paid goal setting systems and courses and links to the newest planner or journaling method to assure success in keeping our new year’s resolutions this time even though we may have failed in the past.
There was once a beautiful and slightly righteous angel living in Heaven. He was very gifted and amazing in just about every way but he struggled a bit with compassion and empathy. He simply couldn’t understand why some humans found it so hard to do the right thing and follow the rules.
