A couple of weeks ago I watched a great training session with a powerhouse Master Coach who was coaching other coaches and female entrepreneurs.
This Master Coach makes approximately 18 million dollars a year coaching women on weight loss, and she was speaking with this young woman who is also a coach. This young woman was feeling incredibly frustrated and defeated because her business wasn’t taking off.
At one point during the conversation the young woman said in frustration, “why isn’t all the work I’ve been putting into this business working!?”
And the Master Coach took a moment, and said to her very calmly “Because you haven’t been doing it long enough yet, you need to keep going”
Well that just upset this young woman further, and she said, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME, I’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR FOUR YEARS!!"
And the Master Coach said “For 9 years it cost me more to run my business, than what I got out of it. I went from...
Why is making massive changes in our lives hard to sustain?
We are wired to stay safe. We are wired to survive.
When our “normal” is eating crappy food and drinking too much alcohol, we feel safe. There's a comfort in making those choices because it's what we do on a regular basis.
Then there comes a time when we desperately want to make changes in our lives, but our brain freaks out because we’re stepping outside our safety zone. Maybe it’s losing weight, or quitting smoking, or starting your own business, or cutting back on alcohol, or quitting your job… it’s natural for us to RESIST change.
Intellectually we know making these changes are good for us. We know incorporating healthier lifestyle choices into our lives will in fact help us to survive and live longer… but our brain doesn’t see it that way. All it sees is that we have felt safe eating crappy food and drinking too much wine, so making these changes must be a bad thing....
When You Know Your WHY, You Know Your WAY!
I’ve been talking about knowing your WHY with my coaching clients a long time before Simon Sinek made it popular.
We see the question “what’s your why?” in books, podcasts, motivational talks and workshops. It helps us establish meaning and a purpose behind our drive.
Knowing our WHY also helps us develop a sense of purpose. Studies show that people who feel a sense of purpose make more money, are happier, healthier & more confident, and deal with stress & anxiety more easily.
So here I am, on a 30-day renewal and today is day 9.
Have I slipped a little? Yep! In full transparency, on day 6 and 7 I slipped and didn’t fully stick to my plan. I’m back on track now, but what I realized is that I didn't get clear on my WHY at the beginning of the 30 days so it was easier to justify cheating.
No one is forcing me to do this 30-day renewal. I can drop it today and forget about it...
Do you feel like fear has you handcuffed? Do you feel you don’t have what it takes to transform your income, wealth, happiness...and essentially your LIFE?
I keep hearing my clients say “How do I recover from this?!” There is so much stress and uncertainty fueling our fears, so I've recently done a few free trainings on how to uncover your untapped potential in order to increase and amplify your wealth, confidence, happiness, self-love and abundance.
I’ve been on this journey myself for the past decade, and after building multiple businesses, launching dozens of programs, coaching hundreds of women, and transforming thousands of lives… AND from the feedback I received from those free trainings, I decided to create a new 6-month program for women. I know the massive shifts that will happen globally when more women heal their emotional pain, step into their roles as leaders, and align with the higher version of themselves.
Have you ever heard of...
Embracing that "everything happens for a reason" can be a tough pill to swallow sometimes. Especially when in those dark hours of deep depression - as was my case a few years ago.
However, once I believed my life could change for the better, much discovery led to recovery and the realization that I could help others.
I was interviewed by Carol Graham, host of the Never Give Up Hope podcast, to discuss my journey and how what happened to me is now fuelling my entrepreneurial spirit, as well as my passion for business and life coaching women.
In this podcast, Kelsey gets interviewed by KC Armstrong, host of WMAP Radio. They discuss challenges and how to bounce back stronger than ever. Kelsey dives into her personal struggles and why she decided to get into the sort of life coaching and health coaching that supports and empowers women.
Manifest. How huge is this buzzword? No doubt you have heard it thrown around a lot. Regardless of its trendiness, I really believe in the power of manifesting and I’m going to tell you why.
Not long ago, over brunch, my friend was telling me that she really believes in the power of manifestation, but her boyfriend doesn’t.
She’s a young writer, and one of her high level goals is to write for the New York Times. It’s a lofty goal, and not an easy thing to achieve, especially being Canadian. So when her boyfriend was in New York for work, she asked him to bring her home a copy of the newspaper so she could display it in her house and have it act as a symbol to help her make her dream come true.
She was a bit shy in telling me all this because she didn’t know how I would react,...
In the lead up to the wrap up of my 8-week Optimal Health and Conscious Living course, I ran a group coaching session with my coach, Amy K. Yes, coaches have coaches, and both my husband and I work with Amy, who specializes in taking people to their full potential. In fact, she really helped us realize our dream of moving to New York City.
The goal of this particular session was to bring all of the women enrolled in my program together to look at their desired outcomes. These goals were set at the beginning of the course and, after taking in weeks of content dealing with everything from food sensitivities to adrenal health to sexual health to meditation and mindfulness, it was time to look at how could they best incorporate all this valuable information into their everyday lives.
Whatever it is in life – a coach or course that we expect to transform us; the new gym membership - we can get so caught...
