Does your mind keep going over the same choices without resolution? 

Perhaps you’ve not analyzed pros and cons; perhaps you’ve over analyzed.

Perhaps you’re procrastinating – always based on fear (of failure, of being judged, of success, of being controlled).

Perhaps you’re in perfectionism mode and stuck.

Perhaps you need to figure out where-what your strengths are and what your personal power is before you can move forward with good choices.

In today’s busy world it often feels like there is not enough time to accomplish everything we want to. We may find ourselves wishing there were more hours in the day or pleading for just one more day in the week. What if there were a way to create the time we need in our lives to do it all? You can learn how to use mindfulness techniques to change the speed and nature of your thoughts so that you simply get more done in less time. By changing the nature of your relationship with time, you will become more efficient, more creative and more productive.

It is amazing how creative we can be about not getting on with the task at hand. If you ever find yourself doing something other than what you should be working on, almost certainly there is an underlying fear manifesting. Additionally, our minds tend to run a commentary on what is going on around us – sometimes referred to as ‘inner dialogue or chatter’.

Perhaps your intentions-goals are clear or maybe there are too many choices. I can help you (or a group that you form) release your fears, focus and get to it! – with mindfulness meditation and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping) via Skype, my Westbury, NY office or your venue.  Contact me for a FREE consult: 516 623 4353

Yes, research shows it’s possible! with actively choosing new ways to think, new ways to behave, and new environments that best suit your emotional style.   We can change how the brain responds to emotional stimuli with researched strategies that include:

    • Find out what your “hot buttons” are – what triggers your negative emotions.
    • Observe your emotions in the moment, without labeling good or bad.
    • Investigate emotions by asking yourself questions like, “Why do I feel this way?” or “What are my emotions trying to tell me?” Sometimes there is a logic and pattern of our emotions than we can learn from and improve.
    • Practice responding to emotions in new and constructive ways (for example, dancing, writing, or painting).

I work successfully with clients and groups to do this with Peak Performance Success and Life Coaching that may include stress and anger management, guided meditation and the modality EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping – that speed up this process!

Most successful people are less likely to be perfectionists as perfectionism impedes performance.  Facebook’s headquarters had “Done is better than perfect” painted on the wall. Imagine if Facebook had waited until it was “perfect” to launch. It probably wouldn’t be around today.

Perfectionism is often born of extra demanding parents or former schoolteachers.  While perfectionism is a “learned habit” it can be an “unlearned habit”.   Perfectionists spend more time than necessary on tasks that don’t require the extra care. One issue that perfectionists often run into is not understanding that all tasks don’t require the same amount of effort and time.  Consequently, they feel overwhelmed from not having enough time in the day.  When you’re so overwhelmed by work and anxiety, you can’t get anything done, and you become trapped in a loop of unhealthy thoughts, impulses, and behaviors.

A combination of coaching and EFTtapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) can help you break the cycle and transform procrastination (often a product of perfectionism) too!!

You already know the value of coaching, if you stop to think about it. You’ve seen coaches huddle on the sideline with their players, right? An athlete rarely succeeds without the strategy and encouragement a great coach offers, or the accountability a coach demands.

Wondering whether you’d like to have a coach in your corner? Here are 10 critical things a coach can do for you.

  1. Assess and Take Stock: Coaches ask what’s next for you in key areas of life, like work, relationships and well-being. They’re looking for areas where you’re in action and your strengths shine. Coaches listen for gaps between where you are and where you want to be. A coach can help align your goals, values, desired impact and purpose.
  2. Focus:By shining a spotlight on the future, a coach helps you clarify a vision. Your coach will work with you to articulate your goals, then plan and gather resources. Your coach will bring you back to the original focus when you stray (everyone does!).
  3. Motivate:We all get distracted, drifting away from even the best of plans. Your coach will help you tap into your deep reservoirs of motivation, often by reminding you of your long-range vision. Your coach will affirm and champion you. Your coach will nudge you to reflect, connect, explore, choose, repack and act.
  4. Optimize:At the heart of coaching is this question: What would it take to be your best in all dimensions of your life? A coach works alongside you to ensure that your performance matches your potential and is driven by your purpose. Your purpose is your GPS. Everyone is an experiment of one…growing, learning and making choices.
  5. Encourage:There are moments when it’s tempting to quit, and that’s when your coach becomes your best support. Your coach can serve as part of your sounding board and a haven of emotional safety.6
  6. Shift Perspective: Coaches are trained to be powerful listeners, ferretting out blind spots, pointing out alternative perspectives, and freeing you to see things in a different way. By reframing your view of a struggle, a question like, “In five years, how will you view this situation?” can lead to insight, motivation and action.
  7. Probe:One of a coach’s most effective tools is a powerful question: “What do you want?” “How is that connected to your purpose?” A provocative question can startle you, lead to insight and cause you to rethink a habit. A coach will challenge you to ask and answer difficult questions without analyzing intentions or probing into your past.
  8. Build Structure: A coach provides the environment for you to translate your desires into action—nonjudgmental listening and supportive accountability. If you know your coach is going to ask you whether you’ve accomplished the objectives you outlined in a previous session, you’re very likely to come to the session prepared.
  9. Clear Hurdles: What if you don’t accomplish what you’ve committed to? Your coach can help you recognize why you’re not following through and craft a plan for eliminating barriers to your goal.
  10. Celebrate:In the busy whirl of our lives, time with a coach can create a pause when you recognize what you’ve accomplished. When was the last time you gave yourself time for reflection and celebration? When have you recognized your own growth and learning? It’s important to create time to integrate new behaviors and make them daily habits.

Imagine huddling with your coach to reflect, build a structure for exploring, and create connections that propel you to act. Go ahead. Set up a session with a coach to move toward what you want to create in your life.

Perhaps you do not even know it…or feel it heating up and it’s not too hot yet so you just want to relax…

Well, before it becomes too hot to handle, check in with yourself – what is your body feeling?  Can you take a few deep breaths and notice more?

The hot water you’re sitting in is often full of anger, regret, shame, fear, guilt, anxiety, stress and more. When it  Have you accepted a level of pain in your body that you’ve simply just gotten used to?  People in pain often have had it for so long, that it’s just a part of life. That’s called, “you’re in hot water” and you’ve become used to it!

You can actually feel strong and vibrant, regardless of your age!

EFTtapping and coaching can help with this!  Call me for a Free Consult: 516 623 4353
