Motivation: What speaks most to the very heart of why I do what I do is contained in a recent vision I had: I saw myself sitting on a throne in a great hall. The throne stood on a platform 3 steps above the stone floor of the hall and was situated directly in front of a large rectangular pool of water. The bottom of this pool was covered with countless gemstones, and the pool itself adorned overall with precious metals and jewels.
Reflecting on this vision, I understood the throne to be the seat of my power and authority and the pool the container of my wealth. Wealth? What wealth? Some days later, I realized that this pool full of riches represented an inner wealth, symbolizing what David Brooks, in his book The Social Animal, calls “the rich underwater world where character is formed and wisdom grows”. It is wealth, moreover, that is meant not to be hoarded but to be shared — shared generously. Which brings me to the point I want to make here: I am motivated — indeed, committed — to sharing this wealth with as many people as possible.
Qualification: What qualifies me to offer my services as a LifeCoach? I have over 30 years of experience creating value (some of it inestimable) for those people who have participated in one or another of my seminars, or who have sought individual counseling with me. A trainer once said to me, “If there is one thing I know how to do, it’s to support people.” My own assertion would be: I am an asset to anyone who chooses to engage me for support.
Some of my coaching qualities:
- The ability to understand and inspire people
- An intuitive grasp of situations
- The ability to discern underlying patterns
- The ability to get to the heart of the matter
- Offering workable solutions
