What's in it for you?   A connection, some challenges, a few questions to encourage you to simply reflect about how you live your life versus how you want to live your life.   Feel free to share the answers with me:   I would love to hear from you.   This is an invitation to focus on where you would like to change and grow and access support when you need it.  


Can you be trusted?  

You can make miracles!

Support and sharing in the fight against extra weight

Wise Coaching - Fabulous New Incentive program!

1:  Can you be trusted?

Trust has always ranked high on my list of values.   This translates into filling my world with people I trust and wanting them to feel that I am completely trustworthy.  

After reading Stephen R.  Covey's book "The Speed of Trust" recently, my definition of trust has an additional dimension.  

In his book the author deals with trust in the business world and social/family world.   But the most powerful direction he points to is the impact of trusting yourself.   If you tell yourself you are going to do something, you must follow through with it or the promises you make to yourself become meaningless.  

One example:  "I'm not going to be late anymore".   The intention is good.   The promise lasts for a couple of days.   And then the phone rings at the time of leaving and the curiosity of the moment blows the great intention.   Chances are that once it's blown once, the entire resolve is destroyed.  

When this happens regularly, the result is a loss of trust in self. You lose the belief in your personal word.   Change becomes even more challenging than ever before.   When this happens repeatedly, self promises become hollow and self esteem suffers.   It's a huge cost.  

So my hope for you is that you make self promises sparingly and take them very seriously.   Be a man or woman of your word, especially to the most important person in your life.  

If you need some help following through, try a coaching sample.   Through coaching you'll learn to recognize what is holding you back and come to realize how important you are when it comes to fulfilling your own promises.

2:  You can make miracles

The last thing I feel like doing at 5:30 p.m.  is a conditioning exercise class.   The music is brutal, I dislike the type of exercise and I'm generally at my lowest energy level at 5:00 p.m.  when I need to get ready to go.   But I go.  Not going is not an option (I have paid for these classes and I hate waste!).   The class is hugely challenging.   I work very hard and cannot always keep up with the better conditioned (and sometimes 30 years younger) others in the class but I do put a big effort into it.   So here's the miracle part:  I start with a miniscule amount of energy, I use up a ton of energy and then somehow by the end of the class and for the remainder of the evening I'm bursting with energy!   As a former math teacher, something doesn't add up.   It simply must be a miracle!  

I promise you - this miracle will work for you as well!

Do you find yourself with a plethora of ideas that never get acted upon since you simply run out of juice by the time you have time?   The trick is to force yourself, commit to exercising regardless of the timing of your lethargic state of mind and body.

Make your own energy miracle.

3:  Support and sharing in the fight against extra weight.

The 12 WEEK COACHING WEIGHT LOSS GROUP offers unlimited support and the opportunity to examine and then change non-beneficial behaviours.

Why do you eat if you aren't hungry?  Why does exercise slip to the bottom of your priority list?  In this program participants learn more effective ways to handle stress, boost self esteem and counteract other issues which cause people to misuse food and mistreat themselves.

When? Beginning Monday May 14, 12:00 noon eastern, or Tuesday May 15, 6:00 p.m. eastern.   12 weekly one-hour group calls and also includes 3 private coaching calls.

How? Very straightforward!  Call a long distance number that is a hookup to a bridge line.

Who? Up to 6 wonderful women with similar challenges.

How Much? $300

Any questions? Please feel free to call or email.  

Not for you?   I'd imagine that someone you know could greatly benefit.   Feel free to pass this along (you could actually save their life) - and see section 4 below.

4:  Wise Coaching introduces a fabulous new incentive program!

We are not all born to be marketers.   Especially most coaches are not born to be marketers.   This week, I bit the bullet and attended a terrific marketing seminar.   Here's the result.  

As of this moment, I'm offering incentives for anyone who recommends someone who signs up for my coaching.   The reward will be a gift certificate (and who doesn't love a gift certificate?) of your choice from one of the following stores:   In the U.S.  - Borders or Macy's and in Canada - Chapters or The Bay.  

If the person you recommend signs up for group coaching, your gift certificate will be for $50.   If she/he signs up for private coaching, your gift certificate will be for $100.   If you, yourself sign up - same deal!  

This offer is available until June 30, 2007.   Pretty sweet?

Wishing you what you wish for yourself.

with warm regards,
