ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

When the doctors told my client Jane she would never work again due to severe anxiety she actually believed them. I however, did not.

Less than 1 year later she was profiting over $1,000 of cashflow a month running her own baking business. She had always had a passion for baking but conceptualizing it into a source of income was something she never even realized was a possibility. That’s the power of coaching – you can not even fathom the possibilities and opportunities on the other end of this transformational experience. When I started working with “Jane” (fake name to hide her identity) she was severely overweight, addicted to cigarettes, hyper anxious, and had zero income. Today she is 75 pounds lighter, no longer smoking, has control over her anxiety, lives a happier and healthier life and is running a multi 4 figure business out of her home kitchen. 

How did this happen….

September 26, 2021

It was 5am in Waikiki, Hawaii as I’m walking down the street having a free discovery session with Jane, this was the first time we had met (virtually). She originally reached out to me for help losing weight but little did she know she was going to get way more than she could have ever imagined. On our first call we clearly identified her goals and co created the action steps to achieve them. We started small, as I do with most of my clients. Together we had decided a daily 45 minute walk, 5 minutes of meditation, and 1 less cigarette per day would be the perfect start for her to get back on track towards a happier and healthier lifestyle. She desperately agreed that this was a good plan for her to start with knowing that any exercise and new positive habit would be better than what she is currently doing now.

“I didn’t know exactly where we were going to end up but I knew the direction to start traveling.”

I knew that with consistent execution of these small wins she would be able to turn her entire life around and magic would happen. Today Jane is thriving and continues to work with me closely because she has unwavering conviction that life coaching works.

99% DON’T TAKE ACTION

Why 99% of the people that tell me they want to think about coaching never end up taking action?

So every week I usually take a few free coaching calls from people that are interested in exploring life coaching. I’m not surprised when people ask me what a life coach actually does because I tend to get that question often.

During these calls, I’d say 9 out of 10 people realize that this is an amazing life-changing opportunity for them, especially during a rare time when I have space on my roster to take on new clients. On these free calls I ask some questions similar to the ones below:

  • “Do you think this is a good way for you to accomplish your goals and dreams?”
  • “Do you trust me?” And
  • “What would happen if you were to lose all that weight you’re trying to lose or if you stopped abusing drugs and alcohol?”

Then they proceed to tell me about all the possibilities that are waiting for them on the other side of these challenges. They know they have a bright future if they can take control of their health, finances, and addictions and they desperately want a great future.

Seems like a no-brainer, right?

Then we get to the most important part of the conversation, the part where they are asked to take action. I tell them how much the coaching commitment costs and begin to go over the next steps which include but are not limited to: scheduling the first call, signing an agreement, methods of payment. I encourage them that if they are ready they should act now and act fast. These are not sales tactics this is a challenge to step into the greatest version of themselves so why wait? Why would anyone say no?

Entering a coaching client relationship is a big commitment and that’s why we create such massive positive results. Sometimes, the potential client, on the other end of the phone, tells me they need time to think about it. I say, take as long as you want to think about it, there is no pressure. But I let them know If they don’t act right here, right now they likely aren’t going to act, and I tell them why… If we get off the phone without you acting your mind and your thoughts are going to try to convince you of all the reasons why you do not need a coach. Your thoughts are going to justify to you that this is not something that you need. But over the last 20 minutes you have given me dozens of reasons why hiring me as your life coach will benefit you in so many countless ways. You know this is right for you and you know this is what you need but if you allow yourself to end this phone call without taking action it will be the last time I ever hear from you.

Why is this true?

Our mind likes to play crazy little tricks on us. Our mind wants to prove to itself that they are control of us, this is called ego. Our ego doesn’t like to be threatened especially by other people. Our ego will do anything it can to remain in control. When hiring a coach you are being vulnerable to someone else and you are in a way giving up some control. Sometimes the best way to gain control is to give up some control. You must kill your ego. Do everything you can to show your thoughts and your mind who is really the boss of your choices and actions. All this begins by being aware of your thoughts or the way you react to something when it’s time to make a decision. Becoming aware allows you to react as your true self and not from your thoughts and emotions that are trained to react in a certain way.

I am currently interviewing new clients and am planning on taking on 3 new people by the end of the year.

Are you ready? Just do it.

HOW TO LIVE IN YOUR HEALTHIEST BODY – A 💩STORY

As my 3rd Full Ironman is approaching (October 2nd in Barcelona), it’s important to make sure I’m in my healthiest form. Nothing less than peak performance is what I’m after. This race is potentially 17 hours long (depending on how fast I move.) Every single calorie will be burned on race day and if I want to finish it’s going to take everything I have, physically and mentally.

Now most of you reading this blog post are most likely not training for a 140.6-mile race but there’s a lot to learn on the journey of living in your healthiest body. We all want to look and feel healthy. It’s in our nature to want to feel good. Obviously, diet and nutrition are important. It’s safe to say that avoiding toxins like drugs and alcohol would benefit you as well. But being able to customize a plan that fits just right for you is the only way that you can live your best life and not someone else’s. No two people’s DNA is the same so having customized tests done on your blood, VO2 (oxygen level), gut tests, yearly physicals, and other exams are critically important.

Whether you are a 9-to-fiver, stay-at-home mom, college student, or binge-watching Stranger Things on Netflix I encourage you to be more intentional about your health.

HOW TO EAT A HEALTHY DIET WITH BALANCE

This has been a very busy week for me. I just on-boarded 2 new life coaching clients and I’m helping both of them lose weight. Client number one wants to lose 20 pounds and client number two wants to lose 30 pounds. Well, they came to the right place! I admire them for taking action and hiring a professional to help them reach their goals. Don’t do it alone.  Investing your money into hiring professional help is a great way to shorten the learning curve. Whether that’s a life coach, therapist, online courses, etc.. Hiring someone who has more experience than you is a no-brainer when it comes to your own personal growth and self-development. Time is more valuable than money and anything that saves you time is usually worth your money.

So what do I have these clients do to lose weight?

First of all, I have the utmost faith in these two new clients and the fact that they’re going to reach their weight loss goals. There is no doubt in my mind that if they work on the plan and execute it with consistency they will be 100% satisfied and more so motivated to make even bigger changes in their life. Creating a life full of joy and love, happiness and great experiences, wealth and abundance start with one small step. Great job you two!

Almost 3 years into my life coaching career and I have had this exact conversation with hundreds of people, yes HUNDREDS. (Often multiple times a day with dozens of people each week.) These conversations are built around two different pillars of physical health – diet and exercise. One is not more important than the other and they are both necessary to live a healthy lifestyle and lose or maintain a healthy weight. So where do we start?

Diet. So much info but not enough clarity…

I’ve read hundreds of books and I’ve listened to thousands of podcasts to learn what comprises the perfect diet. If you YouTube, “healthy diet” or “how to eat healthily”, you will get so many different answers based on a wide variety of theories. Is plant-based better than a carnivore diet? Is keto sustainable long term? Should you be eating dairy? All great and valid questions and it seems that the more you learn the less you actually know.

Buddha said it best, “don’t listen to what I say and believe it, experience it for yourself.” I think this quote rings extremely true regarding your relationship with food and diet. Why is this so? First of all, the Buddha’s quote is accurate because as humans we are all built differently and respond differently to different foods.

I make it very clear to my clients that we are all biological human beings. What does that mean? What that means is what works for you might not necessarily work for me. We all have unique DNA and our biology responds differently to different foods and substances. However, with that being said there definitely is a proven formula for living a healthy lifestyle. The formula for living a healthy lifestyle is eating a good diet and exercising daily. Now you can eat healthily and exercise daily and still be making poor choices. For example, I want to make a quick reference back to my recent blog post about addiction and how many people are abusing vaporizers and smoking cigarettes

A lot of people come to me for guidance on weight loss specifically and even though I’m a certified nutritionist the method for weight loss is different for each individual but one thing is standard across the board…. Eating healthy foods. Your food should be as close to its natural form as possible, meaning, no processed food, nothing manufactured in a factory. So how do you know if you’re eating the right foods based on your DNA and lifestyle? Only one way to find out! Schedule a free discovery call today!

CONFIDENCE IS KEY

I remember April/May 2017 – I had just left a salaried position to embark on a journey of a true entrepreneur, not knowing where my next paycheck was coming from. I had just leased a brand-new Infiniti Q50 and had a $400 car payment. I didn’t have much money in my bank account, I was paying $1200 a month for rent and now with a $400 car payment my back was against the wall, the pressure was on. I tell you about this story because today is 5 years to the day that I received an award from EXIT Realty as the #1 agent in the state of Florida in closed transactions for the month of May 2017. This award was presented to me without my knowledge, not even realizing that I was in the running. This award gave me the boost of confidence I needed to keep on going.

“Pressure creates diamonds.”

What is confidence

I’ve always been a confident person, naturally, I just believe in myself. And the belief that I am capable of just about anything has given me faith to take risks and perform actions that have yielded incredible results. My confidence not only in my intelligence but my confidence with social skills has allowed me to create opportunities that would not have been possible without it. Every one of us needs to find ways to create more of that confidence inside. But how do you create confidence if you’re not a confident person? Well, what are you good at? Where do you show up your best? What do you do better than other people? These should be some simple easy-to-answer questions to ask yourself if you are struggling with confidence. Confidence is key and I’ll tell you why.

Why is confidence so important?

Without confidence, you won’t be able to step into the greatest version of yourself. If you’re feeling down and don’t believe that you can accomplish something, or if you are afraid of failure, then why would you ever try? Trying and failing ultimately getting closer to success might be a SHOT to our confidence, but if you never give up and always try, those failures experienced are just another step along the way. There is success in failure. And confidence can be built in any failure you experience. Failing with confidence, have you ever tried doing this? It’s empowering.

How has confidence changed my life…

I think the best example of where confidence has changed my life is when it comes to Iron Man. For me, the most important thing is getting to the starting line healthy, but the next most important thing is having the confidence that I’m going to dominate the race. The only way I have confidence at the starting line is if I’ve executed my training plan at least 90%. Hitting each run, bike, and swim during training blocks gives me the confidence to get through and endure the pain to pass the finish line and become an Iron Man, yet again.

Confidence and the Snowball Effect…

The snowball effect. Confidence is just like the snowball effect. The more confident you become the more you are able to achieve, resulting in more confidence. The more confidence you create from the more you are able to achieve creates more achievements. More achievements leads to more confidence, so on and so forth. You get the idea.

“A journey of 1000 miles starts with one step.”

So where’s your first step of confidence? Maybe it’s your work ethic or maybe it’s simply the way you make other people feel. You are the only you there ever were and ever will be, you are unique and this uniqueness should bring you confidence. I know this is easier said than done, but what’s your other option? Giving up?

In conclusion, lean in to what you are good at, lean in to where you show up your best. Take chances, and try not to be defeated by any failures you experience, be resilience in your determination to build confidence and it will come.
