Ladies, my wish today is to coach you on how and when to ask for help. It breaks my heart to see and hear of women suffering in silence. The more responsibility you have, the more need you will have for help. Truthfully, asking for help is a sign of intelligence and strength. Even though we are wonderfully made, there are limitations to our superpowers. We all possess a unique individual gift, but using those gifts collectively gives us our greatest potential for power.
In 2006, I founded Future Focused Professional Life Coaching because I found myself struggling asking for help. And not just any help. I needed help that would be discreet, encouraging, and affirming. Back then, I was working as a psychotherapist. I needed someone that could understand that I shouldered the daily responsibilities of both patient concerns and healthcare staff members. In my job, there was very little room for error. Strangely enough, this is what made me one of the best, but also made me feel alone and stressed.
Please, please, please ladies take great care of yourselves. Do as I did, ASK FOR HELP! It will be the best decision of your life. It’s okay to be selective about the type of help you receive. Quality is important. Call Future Focused for professional life coaching services today. There are several ways that we can help you. Face-to-face, telephone, electronic mail, and Skype. There is no longer an excuse for hiring the best. Call us now @ (901) 494-8033 or email us at email@example.com.
How will you get the help you need?
Tis the season for those wonderful New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re like me, you have a strong desire to have a better quality of life. There are several poor habits that I wish to correct. Some of them are small while others feel impossible to change. However, today I give myself permission to make mistakes. I pledge to be kinder to myself with my thoughts and actions. And if I fall short of my goals, I promise to speak gentle and encouraging words of life into my spirit. My new motto is, “Dust yourself off and try again!”

The other day I was thinking about my life and how I have chosen to live it. It was a beautiful experience looking back and seeing how my choices have led me to this season of my life. Here’s what I learned about myself:
First, I live with few regrets. Years ago, I promised myself that living with regrets would not be my reality. There was a time in my life when I was afraid to live life. I protected myself too much and became bitter as I watched other people live life.
Second, God has given me what at times I wasn’t able to give myself. “LOVE.” Looking back at some of the more difficult moments of my life, I can see the loving hand of God at work. I recall tender memories of various people giving me a hand up and encouraging me to pursuit my dreams.
Lastly, being aware of my destiny. Since the age of nine, I knew being a life coach/therapist/counselor was my life’s calling. For as long as I can remember, I felt that God gave me this gift to share with the world. When I operate within my gift, I feel a closer connection to God. The closer I am to God, the better friend I am to myself. And when I am loving to myself I become a more dynamic life coach to my clients.
What does your life teach you?
In the past few months, life has dealt me several hard blows. Earlier this year, I began seeking answers to questions like, “Who am I?”, “What purpose would I like my life to have?”, “What ways can I leave this earth better than what it is now?”
After a beautiful conversation with a friend, I realized, “I’m a fighter!” My down never means I’m out. My silence never means I’m weak. And most importantly, my tears usually mean that my soul is being cleansed.
A clean soul makes for a free spirit. A free spirit makes a happy heart. And a happy heart opens the way to a more balanced life.
How do you cope with stress?
This morning I found myself enjoying the beauty in the simple things of life. A patient,
where I work, that suffers with a chronic mental illness taught me that no matter
the circumstance, there is joy to be experienced and shared. Now this patient has
bravely battled one struggle after another. At times, frustration and hopelessness
seemed to be her constant companions. But for a few moments, when a song began to
play, she was magically taken to a place where peace and joy became her new best
friends. The problems, worries, and frustrations no longer existed. Her smile was
brighter, she interacted with her peers, and most importantly, she was able to
see and feel herself living again.
To others it was just a song. To this wonderful lady it was a brilliant way to
reclaim something that had been missing for a long time. By allowing her light
to shine, she was able to shine on others.
Have you found your song?
