The Power of Personal Transformation
We all need mentors, from the moment we are born, we are guided first by loved ones, and then by educators. Knowledge, skills and meaning is passed on from Master to disciple, but then for the vast majority it stops when we reach adulthood and employment, We are simply expected to make sense of it all.
After reaching adulthood the majority of people are for the most part left alone to figure out the nature of the Universe, and more importantly the nature of themselves. Many, even after a lifetime never truly realise who they were and who they could have been.
Life mentoring is simply a continuation of that innate desire and need to be guided; We are all born dreaming about our potential; ask any child and you'll hear the wondrous answers they give on what they want to be when they grow up, our goals and dreams are not limited at this point, so what changes? The impact of social, cultural, economic influences mean the vast majority lose sight and hope of who they are, and more importantly their innate potential. Life; so often 'gets in the way' meaning many give up on dreams, ambitions and start to settle for less and less, and before long people feel they are living unfulfilled lives, even when successful in one or more part of their lives.
I speak from of over 20 years of experience that is a combination of personal and professional reflection and analysis. Over the decades I have transformed myself in so many ways, striving to understand both my potential and how others succeed, refining the strongest elements of what I and my mentors helped me see and act upon; my potential; this is what life mentoring is about, coaching to develop short term skills, and mentoring to embed them for the long term.
Recognising your potential is key to transformation, and transformation is enlightenment.
After working as a personal mentor for over 15 years, and having guided over ~1,500 people through what is the most transformative time of their lives (the change to being a functional adult) I believe that I have refined my mentoring process and identified what makes successful individuals a success regardless of race, age, gender, social class or ethnicity, the discovery and nurturing of one's 'fire in the belly'; a source of passion and determination that makes people succeed and fulfil their desires no matter the obstacle no matter the difficulty. As a life mentor that is my aim, to light that internal fire; which once lit will shine for eternity.
Personal transformation is not about forcing major shifts in personality or mental outlook, sometimes and more often than not the desired changes are small, but often people are unable to break through personal self limiting beliefs and barriers, developing the realisation that small changes lead to big changes is key in developing a life long transformational mindset.
Transformation of the self transforms the world around us, but the journey has to start from within, if you've taken the time to read to this point, you are already on the way to enlightenment.
I offer a range of specialised 121 programmes depending on the areas you need covering , often we may or may not realise that issues in one area, affect and impact your ability and in another, so a holstic approach and well as a targeted approach is key.
Personal life - Do you feel like you're not making the most of life? There's so much to see, do and learn in this world, but often a lack of confidence, time and will-power can cause us to stay inside not doing anything. Life coaches use specialist skills to motivate their clients to do the things they want to do, so they can finally fight the urge to procrastinate.
Business life - Starting and running a business is tough work. Sometimes we get so absorbed in hard work we neglect ourselves. Life coaches can help with confidence, leadership, decision-making and work/life balance.
Performance - Improvement is at the heart of life coaching. Whatever your skill, life coaching could help improve it. Whether you're an athlete, an artist, a writer, a performer, or a musician - adopting specialist techniques will help you to push your limitations and exceed expectations.
Relationships - Do you wish you had the confidence to approach someone you have your eye on? Do you struggle with commitment? Are you struggling to cope with a divorce? Whatever the problem, a life coach could help you to understand your relationships and work towards improving them.
