Periods of reflection to confront those uncomfortable areas in our lives that we ignore or disregard in the daily grind are but natural especially when all the sacrifice and hard work to achieve the ‘good life’ seems pointless. Am I living the life I was meant to be living or chasing the goals that society is obsessed with – social status, wealth, power, youth or beauty?. Entering another phase of life can be rather unsettling and stressful whether you are clocking 30 or 60 years.
Negativity has become a way of life. Fear limits our ability to say and believe that we deserve to be happy. The truth is that you cannot make anybody happy if you are not happy yourself. Putting yourself first is not selfishness; it is the key to the self-esteem that is not dependent on anybody else’s actions but your own. Everything that we as human beings do is for ourselves and you can’t afford to make anyone happy if you are not happy yourself. It has to start with you first and what you want in your life nobody can take away from you. Very often, people ask me, “I love everyone around me but I don’t know how to love myself…what should I do?”
A busy life can thwart us from familiarising ourselves with who we really are and what we really want. Hectic schedules, constantly new, engaging technologies and inventions persistently assault our senses and challenge the very notion of who we are. And so when we suddenly find ourselves at the crossroads of life, we are often lost. Some of us are sure of which road to take, a few say “Oh God, I can’t take it anymore”, others say, -“I wish I knew what lies ahead”, and still others say “I need a little help”. No matter the curveballs life throws at you, you know you have to persevere. Learn to face your problems head on and keep going.
What is Motivational Coaching?
Through conversations, clients are helped to understand why they find themselves in their current situation and then to identify ways to deal with challenging situations. They are assisted with tools to, – face fears, motivate themselves and focus on moving towards new and better situations. Motivational Coaching is a powerful tool for people making or wanting to make important changes in their lives.
Coaching differs from counselling in that it is primarily focussed on the present and the future. It may be necessary to look back to find the root causes of some obstructive thinking patterns, and then untie some knots, but then we come back to the “where are we now?” and then “where do we want to go?”.
Through motivational coaching, we find ways to:
Teach you to motivate yourself (self-motivation techniques)
How to be the centre of your universe
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha
How to break self-imposed limitations
How to find happiness within yourself and soak up positivity from around you.
Motivational Coaching is for those:
Who feel they could do with a boost of motivation in their lives.
Who want to maximise their strengths and overcome weaknesses.
Who feel lost, who lack energy to keep going each day
Who feel they have a problem channelizing their thoughts and actions
Who feel they are constantly being pulled down by the people around them
Those who just want to speak their mind out and reflect upon actions with a sparring partner.
Jeanine Krause is an AFCNLP member and a certified Advanced Coach. Having travelled the world and experienced different cultures, she has led herself to let go of any judgements and examine the precepts she lives by. The foundation of her coaching lies in her belief that “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” (~Friedrich Nietzsche.)
She believes in the unfathomable potential of a human mind which lies untapped. No matter what problem you face, she teaches you how to arrive at the solution which already lies within you and only you can tap. She is blunt, challenging, honest, amusing and confrontational but she knows what works and if you’re genuinely ready to change then you can connect with her. She can inspire, motivate, and support you in making positive changes in your life.
“….I am where I am right now is all because of you. Thanks for showing me the way; you hold a very special place in my heart”
– Ms. RN, Moderator and Manager – Odisha TV
“…what positive impetus you impressed on me right after my cancer operation and all the time thereafter when I had to walk through the burdening times of chemo therapy. I think there is some very motivating positive uplifting power in you, radiating from you in your communication with others. I believe you are a good listener, a characteristic enabling you to look beyond the outer surface of your vis-a-vis, like taking the bark off a piece of wood to detect what’s hidden behind. Further I think you have a natural talent to well analysing what information you derive from your listening, transforming your analysis into a positive consultative feedback to the person so analysed”
– Dr. JB, Lawyer and a cancer survivor
“Words fall short to express the gratitude & appreciation of what you have done for me! You are a warm person, a patient listener, brimming with positive energy, enthusiasm and a genuine urge to help others overcome challenges, face situations and flip them around to their advantage. You have helped me to deal with my own thought process effortlessly, citing examples and giving tips that are simple, effective & doable. You have taught me to understand myself and help myself, now it is time for me to walk the talk and that would be a perfect ode to you! Rest assured, my life has changed for the better, forever.”
