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.

Since September of 2002, The Centre for New Vibe Training has been on a purposeful mission in guiding the world toward growth with personal and professional coaching.  This weekend we graduated our 58th class, bringing seven more certified coaches into the vision of changing the world.
I heard each student’s story and his or her dreams.  During this 6 month ICF coaching certification program.  What I’ve learned is one person wants to coach women and do women’s retreats, one wants to rally andFall 2016 CORE Graduation coach Christian men, one wants to be a college head football coach and use the philosophy of coaching competencies to change young men’s lives, one wants to start a coach training school in her home country of Brazil, one wants to have coach certification credentials to get accepted into medical school, one wants to bring coaching into the business department at the university where he works, and one wants to use coaching for increased personal growth.
Whatever your passions, dreams, or goals, the coaching language and skillset will help you get there.
Our Spring ICF CORE Certification course is beginning April 22nd and 23rd.  How do you want to change the world?
There is a movement sweeping the nation for those who care about caring for others. Those who sense this calling in their lives are invited to join a powerful and wodreamstime_xs_37395513rthy movement.
It is a mission to help people get unstuck by finding clarity, encouraging strategies to move forward, getting results by taking action, and creating success with an unconditional supportive partner – a Certified Professional Coach to help in accountability.
According to the International Coach Federation (ICF) estimates 25,000 full time and part time coaches are coaching a quarter of a million clients, and the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) provided data proving coaching works better than self-help.
When a coachable client is in partnership with a well-trained certified coach the client’s plans and goals raise from 50% of achievement to 95% of achievement.
Many have taken up their marching orders to help others, through the vehicle of coaching.  What’s stopping you?  Our next Foundations For Coach Leadership class is April 1st and 2nd. Join us in the march.

I don’t know about you, but for me, life always seems to be better at the beach.  Try travelling to the same stretch of beach time after time, what you’ll discover is it’s never the same.  The sands are washed away dreamstime_xs_71037528and shifted with the constant sweep of the tide and the waves.  In the grand scheme of things, a day is an incredibly short amount of time, so the face of the beach is changing constantly and quickly.

If we imagine our lives as the beach, coaching is the waves: it changes you.  And then you act as a wave to the world: you change it.  Being a coach to the world could possibly be one of the most empowering movements you could be a part of.  Could this be the right wave to catch for you?

I hear people say “I can’t afford the time or money right now,” but my thought is this: sometimes you just can’t afford not to.  The next coaching CORE (ICF) Certification is next weekend March 4th and 5th!  Call today to enroll and receive your pre-course work and course books, and to get ready for the first module: Philosophy of Coaching.  Seats are going fast!  Don’t be the one who gets washed away.
