My Story of Transformation
“I can’t even put into words how much I have grown with your coaching, but I’ll try by publically delivering that kick-ass inspirational speech I promised the both of us I would do!“
Retired, co-founder and Executive Vice President, Northern Lights Direct
What was the problem you were having before you engaged me?
Through public speaking and writing a book, I wanted to share some knowledge with others that I had learned and practiced throughout my adult life, but found myself unable to focus and produce any material. I believe it was a lack of self-confidence and a pull to stay comfortable and introverted that resulted in me remaining stuck.
What did your frustration feel like as you tried to solve the problem yourself?
I couldn’t articulate my ideas, not much flowed when I sat down to write, I felt overwhelmed just thinking about it all, and eventually crashed into feeling exhausted and not doing much of anything toward achieving my goals. Any action I took felt like I was moving a boulder up a mountain.
What was different about my approach to helping you solve your problem?
You took me right to the “inspire” phase and I felt an immediate sense of relief, and structure started to appear for the first time. You kept me focused, provided guidance on how to consolidate and write my material, and gave me the confidence to keep on track. Everything you suggested felt slightly out-of-reach, yet also attainable, and that is exactly the place I needed to reach within myself. I felt empowered after our coaching sessions together.
Take us to the moment when you realized the coaching was actually beginning to work to solve your problem.
Once we agreed that I would deliver a 30-minute speech, you taught me how to work through my resistance and trust that my knowledge would emerge. Sure enough, when I began writing, the material for each topic just flowed. I was in absolute awe. Previously I felt unworthy and stuck; after my sessions with you, I felt connected and inspired. All my expectations were exceeded and I was blown away by the material I produced.
What does your life looks like now that your problem is solved or is being solved?
My coaching with you has just ended, and I’m starting my new adventure by writing a speech that I will deliver in public. My former feelings of overwhelm have been replaced with daily feelings of excitement and pleasure. I feel more empowered to be authentic than ever before, and I’m inspired to share my knowledge in meaningful ways with others.
Why did you choose me?
During the time when I was wondering if I would ever be capable of writing a single word, I received an email from you detailing your coaching program on “The Talk You Were Born To Give”. Immediately I knew it would be an incredible opportunity to work with someone I admired who could potentially help me move forward. I’d been following you for years and felt a strong attraction to your message of doing the work we were born to do.
