START WITHIN MANTRA

Start Within to Finish Strong™

Would you be surprised to know that there's a whole other world that's possible in terms of your ENERGY and your JOY?

 

Even if, right now, you're feeling dissatisfied and disillusioned ... as if you will:

  • always struggle to get to a healthier state of mind, body, and spirit

  • always be alone and unlucky in love

  • run out of time before you can do any of the things on your "someday" list

The thing is, we get so used to doing things in the same ways. We're actually more afraid to make changes than we are to live our worn-out routines ... even if they are causing us to feel ill, stressed, or overwhelmed.

What's at stake for your health if you continue living your worn-out routine?

Imagine what it would be like to wake up in the morning, not have it hurt when you get out of bed, and feel excited about your day. Imagine what it would be like to experience what true happiness is really all about.

 

Yes, it's possible ... when you Start Within!

To Discover Your Next Best Step

Why Should I Start Within?


Starting Within is scary; which is why we often don’t do it. Yet, there's a level of authenticity that comes from with going within. It changes your relationship with yourself. You are more focused and grounded, less distracted. You are on mission, on target. The lens through which you view the world is clear. You remain inspired – finding ways to course correct when needed, all the while, leading from the power within.




How Will Starting Within Help My Company & Team?


People want to work for organizations that have purpose and meaning. Creating this kind of environment becomes possible when you examine how well your systems support your team to thrive. A team is a living, breathing organism; the sum of all its parts. If one part has disease, it affects the whole organism. By Starting Within, you will be more intentional about creating an empowering, inclusive culture that supports employees to experience a freedom and excitement about their work. You will foster more rapport as you become more observant and more capable to understand their unique needs and priorities.




How Will Starting Within Help Our Clients?


When you Start Within, what you do and how you deliver it will get better. Your company will create better solutions because your employees will be more attentive to your clients and more focused on their needs. They will be more capable of understanding their issues, needs and concerns; they will be more curious about developing creative ways to solve their problems. All of this will result in better service for your clients.





A Road Map

For Your Purposeful Journey

The Start Within Coaching™ system consists of seven principles that will be the foundation of our work together. Mastery of these principles is imperative to achieve the professional results you seek, create the impact you desire, and build the team you need. 

STEP 1

Start Within

There’s a reason why you began this journey in the first place.

Have you lost sight of that intention because it seems so far in the distance? You will be shown specific practices to get still so you can go inside to listen to your deepest inner voice, and resurface your innermost desires. Starting within will bring back that fire in your belly (not the indigestion!) so you wake up every day feeling inspired, purposeful, and motivated to bring your dream to fruition. 

STEP 2

Nurture Your Wellbeing

You can’t serve others unless you take care of yourself. That's why the airlines advise you to put on your oxygen mask first before helping others. You have a vision that needs to be nurtured; so you need to nurture yourself. Together, we’ll explore new ways to nourish your whole self: body, mind, and spirit. With your new approach to self-care, you will make more consistent healthy lifestyle choices, and feel more energized to bring your vision into reality. 

STEP 3

Clarify Your Priorities

On a deeper level, you know what’s not working in your life (and your business/organization). Fear or tenacity may have held you back from taking steps to change – until now. It’s time to get to a deeper level of honesty about the circumstances within and around you so you can thrive. In this step, we’ll discover the difference between tasks, commitments, and relationships that are valuable because they align with your priorities, and those that may demand your immediate attention but end up distracting you from your purpose. Getting real will help you feel more genuine so you can attract other people who also are genuine in their manner and work.  

STEP 4

Act With Intention

Results don’t happen by accident, but occur as a result of the choices you make. When you act with intention, you feel calm and focused because you are honoring your true desires. When you act in contradiction to your intentions, you feel stressed and conflicted because part of you realizes you’re not honoring what you really want. In this step, you will learn how to take conscious action based on what’s most important to you (not to other people) so you can feel more grounded and achieve the results you truly want. 

STEP 5

Communicate For Impact

Being assertive is actually good for your health. The internal conflict created by miscommunication can cause stress, resentment, anger, feelings of victimization, and even a desire to exact revenge! Being more assertive and confident in your interactions will boost your self-esteem and earn you more respect – both of which can help alleviate tension and anxiety. In this step, you will begin to identify communication barriers in your critical relationships. You will learn how to be less defensive when engaging in challenging conversations, and how to “flex” your interpersonal style to achieve more positive outcomes. 

STEP 6

Stay In Flow

Even with the best laid plans, you will encounter roadblocks and setbacks. You have already experienced this on your journey. What matters is how well you respond, how quickly you recover, and how much you learn – about yourself and your situation. You will be guided through specific techniques to let go of limiting beliefs and thought patterns that have impacted your progress. In this step, we’ll also explore forgiveness and compassion – for yourself and others. While you naturally may want to resist changes in your life, business, or organization, it’s important to stay in flow with what’s happening so you can ultimately feel more ease and be more resilient to future challenges. 

STEP 7

Live & Lead Mindfully

You have a personal stake in protecting our collective and planetary wellbeing. While it may not always seem readily apparent, we are all connected to one another. This step is about creating mindful lifestyle and business practices, with metrics that matter, that take into greater account how your daily actions and choices affect larger ecosystems. With this deeper awareness of your ecological and social footprint, you will benefit your employees and the community in which your business/organization operates.
