“Life Coaching?” So, what is life coaching?
This is the question I get asked the most often. What do we actually do? How can we help, and what is the process?
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Debbie Warren, I am the founder of “Own Your Greatness” Life Coaching. I hold my certification of completion in Life Coaching, as well as Anxiety Therapy. Furthermore, I have additional training in nutrition, interpersonal communication, counseling and psychology.
I believe in order to be at our best, it is imperative that we feed and nourish the three parts of us that make us a whole person. Our physical self, our emotional self and our spiritual self. When one of these is off, it does indeed affect the others. For it is a fact, if you have a weakened link, then the chain itself becomes susceptible to breaking.
Life coaching is about taking our past experiences, both good and bad, and using them to better ourselves. We do this in order to make ourselves more compassionate human beings. It can then leave us open to understanding and change. Remember, our past does not have to define us, rather we have the power to use it to make us better, stronger individuals for ourselves and others.
It is about teaching you to be solely responsible for actions and reactions. It is also about setting goals and reaching them. In doing so, we must learn how to break down roadblocks, both emotional and physical that prevent us from reaching our goals. We need to feed our bodies, our minds, as well our spirituality in such a way that we as a whole are connected and at our healthiest.
Statistics show an alarming num- ber of people suffer from anxiety and depression. It is normal to have emotional setbacks as situations occur in everyday life. Unfortunately, there are many that suffer alone and in silence. This is not necessary, as there are healthy alternatives and solutions. It is important for each of us to have a support mechanism in place as we go through these experiences or setbacks. This is especially true as we may be too overwhelmed to see it ourselves.
I would like to utilize this publication as an informational support exchange and open public forum, for the readers.
If you have topics you would like more information on or addressed, please feel free to forward them. If you are looking for something more personal, or one on one, please feel free to reach out as well.
I would like to close with a quick lesson in ‘Relationship Coaching.’
1. You cannot fight someone else’s demons for them. Strength comes to us when we conquer those fears ourselves. It is then that we can then empower ourselves.
2. We are responsible for the things we say and do to others. Not only as an action, but as a reaction as well.
Finally, do not blame others for the choices you make, they are yours to make. Think, examine and really look at what you are about to say. How will it affect those that will hear it, or even see it.
I challenge everyone to be gentle, kind and understanding of each other. We were created to love and support each other. Please visit my Facebook page @ own your gr8tness. I would love to get feedback and help in any way I can. Isn’t it time to “Own Your Greatness”?
