The early days of searching to make my imprint on life started with a stint in the U.S. Marines, finishing graduate school, and spending a bit of time in the corporate world.  However, I was still clueless, and had no IMG_20170528_110834574sense of purpose.  In my distress I adapted a thinking pattern that helped. It was: “Do what you love and the money will follow”, “above all, to thine own self be true”, and “follow your bliss”.  I’m humbled and amazed how my life unfolded with a revamped philosophy of life.  I never imagined that this September I would be celebrating 15 years of entrepreneurship, having trained over 2,000 new professional leaders and coaches.  And last month I was in Spain walking a 200 mile pilgrimage, a dream and goal of mine that I’d had for 10 years.  My encouragement as you’re reading this is to make a decision to live life blissfully.

Knowing your bliss is a wonderful thing, however there is a danger in knowing and that is in not following it.  Experiencing bliss is a magnified innate state of fulfillment and heightened joy.  It’s an assurance of belonging and it is never boring.  It feels ever new and expansive.  To know requires a process of soul searching and discovery where your happiness, sense of meaning, and truth converge. I believe the best leaders, teachers, coaches and Influencers of people are those that sought adventure and followed their bliss.  Could becoming a certified professional coach help you to help others embrace their bliss? Check out our next coaching program and do some soul searching of your own.

In 2007 I was privileged enough to join Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard and 11 other trainers, speakers, and coaches as they came together to co-author my dreamstime_xs_39901316book “Blueprint for Success”.  I read through all of the authors’ stories but it was chapter 12 that influenced me the most, written by Shannon Wallis.  She wrote about her calling to a personal adventure of walking a 500 mile pilgrimage in northern Spain called El Camino Santiago, or the Road of St. James.  A few years later, in 2010, a movie called “The Way”, written by Emilo Esteves, gives a spotlight to this epic experience.
These influences turned me onto a dream, and the dream turned into a goal.  It’s been 10 years in the making and now it’s a reality: on Friday May 19th I fly to Spain to begin my own pilgrimage on the trail of El Camino Santiago.  What was re-enforced for me was the idea that when you’re inspired by a dream, you’ll discover the power to make it come true, no matter how long it takes.  On-going personal development and growth, along with self-coaching has huge implications on pushing dreams toward becoming reality.  I felt called to walk The Camino.  Is there a dream that calls to you that you want to make real?  Let New Vibe Training help you start that journey, join us for our Foundations For Coach Leadership class and get on the trail toward making your dreams real.
