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 sense 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.

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 and 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!
