As we ring in 2019, we realize that 2020 is only one year away. Wow, we thought for sure we would be driving around in hovercrafts and beaming up and down to our destinations by now! 2020 seemed so far off. Yet, here we are, it’s a year away and we are ready to play “2020 questions”….

  1. Where do you want to be in 2020?
  2. How do you want to feel?
  3. What do you want to learn?
  4. What makes your life meaningful?
  5. Is there a big change happening?
  6. Are you present for those you love?
  7. How do you meet each new day?
  8. How balanced are you in your work and life?
  9. Are you weary and weathered or energetic and vibrant?
  10. Are you achieving what you would like to achieve?

Lots of questions. We live in a busy, stressed out world. We say it and hear it every day. “I’m so busy, busy busy…”  “So stressed!” Is it time to find more time? If so, gaining clarity is key and coaching can help. We ask our clients lots of questions to get them accustomed to determining how they want to live, work, play, and feel. The first step is to get in touch with how you want to feel and set a destination point.  We cannot live vibrant, accomplished lives if we are not clear about our priorities; if we are not well rested; if we are not aligned; and if we are not living in the moment.

It is easy to feel dragged. It is easy to feel overwhelmed, overloaded, overburdened at work and at home. Our clients are amazing individuals seeking clarity, compassion, and contentment in their lives and when they find it, they find authentic success. When they invest in themselves the return is exponential and positively affects everyone around them. They become mindful mentors, admired colleagues, and present parents.

Aspire to inspire. Mindfulness, alignment, spirituality, manifesting, authenticity, purpose are all superpowers. They are tools for living well. Find authentic success this year.  Make operating from your highest self a priority this year. Be willing to dig deep, love hard, spend time on you, and make sure you are not postponing happiness until later. Where do you want to be, how do you want to feel, and what would be authentic success for you? Are you ready to begin?

As we begin this new year, we invite you to “Ask the Coach” by sending us any questions you may have to [email protected] using the subject line “Ask the Coach”.
