Life Improvement Coaching

I am a life improvement coach. My goal is to help you improve your life in multiple areas. I have experience in setting a vision and achieving goals against that vision. I have been on the other side of the phone or table; and I myself continue to do ongoing coaching sessions with other coaches here and there to maintain my focus. CEOs, Professional athletes, Olympic athletes use a coach, everyday people use a coach as well – there is no limitations on who can use a coach to assist them.

We work together to find and hone your strengths and we focus on those strengths to achieve the goals that you set. I am not a people fixer – that isn’t what a coach does. I assist you by adding a different perspective and years of life experience and insight. I meet with you once a week in the beginning to get acquainted with you and the life improvement goals that you want to set. After we meet for a period of time then we make a decision about how often we need to meet to keep you on track and focused. I provide a safe space and am your biggest advocate in moving you forward.

I help you make positive changes in your life; be it holistic and a life of purpose, business outcomes, success outcomes, short term goals, long terms goals, a richer life in general. I can help and am looking forward to celebrating with you as we achieve milestones and make progress towards the life goals that we have agreed upon.

Remember this poem when thinking about what you can achieve in this life:

“I bargained with Life for a penny, And Life would pay no more, However I begged at evening When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is just an employer, He gives you what you ask, But once you have set the wages, Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire, Only to learn, dismayed, That any wage I had asked of Life, Life would have paid.”

– Jessie B. Rittenhouse published this study on how having a purpose extends your life:

People Age Better If They Have a Purpose In Life

Having a purpose in life may help people maintain their function and independence as they age, according to a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry. People in the study who reported having goals and a sense of meaning were less likely to have weak grip strength and slow walking speeds: two signs of declining physical ability and risk factors for disability.

Purposeful living has already been linked to other aspects of wellbeing, like a longer life, lower risk of disease, better sleep and healthier behaviors. But this study is among the first to examine its connection with physical functioning. That’s an important measure, say the authors, especially as the number of senior citizens in the U.S. grows rapidly. Almost 1 in 3 Americans ages 65 and older says they have difficulty walking three city blocks, according to the CDC.

Researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health analyzed data from a long-running national study of adults over 50. In 2006 and again in 2010, people answered survey questions about their health and wellbeing, and also performed tests to measure their grip strength and walking speed.

When the researchers compared people’s physical changes over time with their responses to questions about their purpose in life—whether they go about their days aimlessly or have goals for the future, for example—they found a significant link. Those with a higher purpose in life had a 13% decreased risk of developing a weak grip, and a 14% decreased risk of developing a slow walk, than those with a lower sense of purpose.

For some, having high levels of purpose were even associated with an increase in walking speed over time—an effect equivalent to being 2.5 years younger, the study authors write. The link between purpose in life and walking speed remained after researchers further controlled for preexisting health conditions, depression and health behaviors. The association with grip strength did not remain, suggesting that the effects of purposefulness alone may not be as strong.
