By | Coaching


We are all capable of greatness in our lives.  There is potential within each of us and we have only to look within to find our unique strength.life coach certification

As we look to our future, we create new plans and expectations for our lives.  Here a few powerful tips on how to unleash all that you are capable of so that you can ensure your success for the coming year and beyond.

  1. Know and Honor Your Values

A fulfilling life is one in which the most important beliefs and values you have are honored each and every day of your life.  Your values are already there inside of you.  When your values are expressed, life feels more fulfilling.  It’s important to recognize the connection between the values you possess and the choices you make in your life.  Those choices are filled with positive potential for you when your values are honored.

  1. Move Past Your Limiting Beliefs

Self-limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. They may be conscious or unconscious.  Limitations are actually a part of the mind.  In reality we have no limitations.  Determination always finds a way around obstacles.  Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can, or if you think you can’t – you’re right!”  It all depends on what you believe about yourself.  Unless you begin recognizing your own limiting beliefs and choose not to accept them, they will cause you to fail.  When you align the true core of who you are with your goals, you can tap into your fullest potential.

  1. Take on Successful Strategies

Success leaves an abundance of clues in its wake.  Identify someone who is successful in the same things you want then model what they are doing.  What you want could be a great business, relationship or a fit body.  Remember, they aren’t lucky; they just have strategies that work.

  1. Intensify Your Will Power

Willpower is the ability to exert one’s will over one’s actions.  Willpower manifests as inner firmness, decisiveness, determination, resolution and persistence.  It’s inevitable that life will hit us with some sort of crushing blow.  If you face it head on, it will give you the psychological strength.  View it as a gift and find a way to use it.

  1. Give to Get

The meaning of our lives is shaped by what we give, not what we get.  Many people want to get before they give.  Over the long haul, this outlook never works.  Instead, focus on creating value for others because when you do this, you will get a return that far exceeds your investment.



Values: What Matters Most

Our Values

If I was to ask you what your values are, would you be
able to name them?
This is actually a really important question when you
consider the fact that our happiness is directly linked to our
Whether we realize it or not, values influence our
behaviors, choices and emotions.
They influence our habits, our lifestyle and, in a broader
sense, our way of being and interacting in the world.
So it’s supremely important that we get to know what our
values are and be able to name them.
The best place to start in figuring out your values is to identify what matters most to you.
By answering a few questions we can make the concept of our values more clear. Attached are four questions to help you start considering your unique values. By simply looking at what you regard as valuable, both in monetary and non-monetary ways, you can determine what your core values are.


Values share the common thread of expressing
what matters most to a person, what that person
feels is essential to their happiness.
Conversely, it also means that if we are not happy
then it’s a safe bet that we are not living in alignment with
what matters most.

I encourage you to take a couple of minutes to complete the attached exercise.

Worksheet # 1 – “The Concept of Value”

Give a response to each of the following three questions.

  1.  What would you buy if you suddenly had an extra $500.00 and had to spend it within the next 24 hours?
2. If your home was on fire and you could save three things, what objects would you save?  All people and pets are safe and sound.
3.   If you could change one thing about the world, what would you change?
4. If you had all the time in the world, and you could spend more time on one thing, what would it be?
