Let’s face it: every now and then life throws a massive curve ball at us that leaves us feeling unprepared, vulnerable, lost and unsure how to cope. Something fundamentally has changed in our life that is forcing us to seek out better ways of being. Deep down inside we know what doesn’t work for us anymore. We have a sense of who we want to be and what we want to achieve. No longer wanting those old repeated patterns of self sabotage getting in the way. Wanting to become un-stuck, we may realize this fact:
We are ready to make a change in our lives when the pain of staying the same is GREATER than the pain of making a change.
You may recall the familiar terrain of going down that same bumpy road – over and over again – hoping for a different result each time. Knowing the result never changes and consistently leads to disappointment (and secretly leaving us wondering why we make that choice over and over again!)
Imagine that you could choose to walk down a completely different road instead. One that leads you away from painful frustrations and towards a more peaceful, satisfying life.
How might that impact your day to day living? The way you view your world? The way you view yourself?How might this impact others around you?
You already know it would be a win-win situation for all people involved.
Are you ready to go there and make a powerful, impactful change to redefine your life’s meaning and purpose? To step into your power and share your gifts with the world?
Are you prepared to evolve from a survivor to a thriver?
As a life coach my mission is to inspire and empower people to shift from a victim/survivor mindset – to a healthy, thriving mindset.
What is a thriver?
A thriver is a person who has overcome great obstacles in their life. They have survived some sort of trauma, have a desire to become self empowered and make positive choices for themselves. Where they at one time felt like a victim of circumstance, they have done the deep inner work to move through their challenges and shift towards a better version of themselves. They have developed a healthy mindset, beliefs and habits. They live in the present moment with an open and loving heart. Thrivers are grateful for life and all it has to offer, are resilient and live from a place of personal authenticity.
What to expect from a coaching experience:
My gift to you: a 60 minute discovery session. No cost. No sales pitch. No obligations. Just two human beings having a chat about goals you want to achieve!
“Before working with Paula I felt lost and kind of broken. I needed help improving my self-worth and confidence. Paula helped me figure out the root cause of my issues. Through her coaching and incredible exercises, I was able find and integrate a couple of crucial pieces of myself I thought I had lost and was dearly missing. I feel a drastic change within myself and I’m able to move forward towards my goals. I would recommend Paula to anyone who has gone through a life-changing situation and needs help figuring out how to thrive and become a better, happier and stronger person.” – Begonia L.
