Goal Setting Backwards - LOP029

If you want to accomplish something that’s important to you, do you believe that setting a goal with a deadline, or making a New Year’s resolution will do the trick?

Why Fear of the Future Keeps You Stuck in Your Past – LOP028

Fear of the Future Keeps You Stuck

Do you think the following statement is true: People who are afraid of the future cling to the present.

DREAM - ADD Method

Do you have a vision of what your dream life looks like? Or do you have a mission, or what some refer to as having a calling in life? You can have all of the above.

What Is Your Calling in Life?

DESIGN - ADD Method

This was my life over a year ago (mid 2017), trying to find a way out of personal training and health coaching. This post is inspired by a journal entry  I wrote as a result of using my own, ADD Method: Get Clarity Process. The problems I was struggling at that time were: how to position myself as a life coach, and; knowing my unique and...
