♫MUSIC Coaching Model♫
We will all face the music in our lives at one point or another.
The moment you realize what life is really all about,
you will be able to sing and dance along with the tune and your heart will be full!
The exploration begins! What do you want in your life/career/relationship/health? What do you stand for? Where are you making a contribution to something larger than yourself? What does your heart long for? Where do you want to make a difference in your life?
Through this process of discovery, you can truly learn about what is important to you in your life and the innate forces that drive you to lead an authentic life.From here, your personal mission, vision and values will unfold and these will serve as a perennial lighthouse that guides you through the darkest storms in your life. You will become the master of your ship!
Life mastery is never an easy feat as we are all constantly bombarded and influenced by disempowering beliefs, fears, insecurities and excuses. The process of uncovering these negative thoughts are critical. For you to realize these thoughts are merely conceived through the lenses in which you view the world, it will change your relationship to the “stories” that you have been telling yourself repeatedly and open up a dimension which allows you to connect with your inner self and intelligence, thereby opening up new possibilities and creative ways of thinking.
With more access to your spiritual being, the energy flows from within and empowers the you. This creates a state by which you will be energized physically, mentally and spiritually. However, this must be complemented with a supportive external environment to mitigate any potential energy drainers. Creating structures which include people, routines, habits and places which provides positive energy ensures a sustained state of peak performance.
What is learning without action? With all these insights, it is now time to producing results! In creating a safe, non-judgmental space for you to think & brainstorm, strategies will surface and the coach can act as a sounding board to forward the thinking process and bounce off ideas. With clarity of thought, powerful goals and a strategic action plan will be formulated.
Time to ignite the fire in your belly and get your hands dirty!
Many times, in life, we are moving so quickly and always focused on what needs to be done, less so on what/who needs to be appreciated, thanked and celebrated. The act of celebrating success not only energizes, it also allows you to stop for a moment, reflect and how far you have come and recognize the efforts of others who have helped you along the way. Celebrating success could also come in the form of contribution to others, and it is one of the most powerful ways to experience true fulfillment in life.
