Worksheets: Childhood Influences
2 pages

If we take the time to reflect on how much of what we do and think did not originate as our own idea, and let go of things that do not serve us, we are freed to embrace beliefs and life choices that genuinely resonate with who we truly are and the life that we want to live.

Conditioning: Childhood Influences (Client)

In this section we evaluate how to work with your clients to determine the roles they play in life and why, as well as your role as a coach.

Childhood Influences and Roles (Coach)

In this section we will go over the power of conditioning and how it impacts our clients and how to help them break some of their negative conditioning. We will also look at what our roll is as a coach and ensure that we can use stories to help them be authentic with us.

Conditioning (Coach)

Worksheets: Passions and Interests
4 pages

In life, there are things we just absolutely love to do! There are things we naturally feel drawn to. There are activities we lose ourselves in—getting in the flow. There are things we’re passionate about, that inspire us, or that get us all riled up. In a search for your purpose, an important place to look are at THESE things!

Passion and Interest (Client)

Learn tips for helping your client remember passions that may have been forgotten and give themselves permission to pursue them! Learn how to dig deeper to uncover the reason behind their interests.

Passions and Interests 1 (Coach)

Understanding your client's passions is critical but it holds challenges as many may have pushed them aside and forgotten what they are. This video will give you tips and tools to helping your clients explore their passion, from the smallest things and expanding it to develop an understanding of bigger passions and how they play out in their life.

Passions and Interests 2 (Coach)

Worksheets: Talents and Skills
2 pages

All of us have a magnitude of talents and skills, but that does not mean that we are supposed to use them all to follow our purpose. In fact, just because that we are good at something does not mean that we have to do it or that it will bring us joy. For example, I may be good at data entry but does that mean that it is part of my purpose? Well, it depends if I feel alive while doing it and it brings me true joy.

Talents and Skills (Client)

Learn how to prepare yourself to help clients discover their talents and how best to utilize them.

Talents and Skills 1 (Coach)

Left vs. Right Brain (Coach)

Worksheets: Life Changing Experiences
2 pages

By looking at your life on a timeline you can see it more objectively. You may notice a pattern or a series of experiences that led you along, toward where you are today. By understanding you may see where your life is being led towards. For example have you ever watched a movie and knew what was going to happen before it happen? If you have, then think of your life in the same perspective. If you can observe the plot of the story you may be able to decipher where it's going.

Life Changing Experiences (Client)

This segment is when momentum really starts rolling! It's fun to watch your client look at the trajectory of their life and see how it is often quite clear the direction they are heading, in the direction of their greater purpose. Often you'll see that life events are often pivotal and that they have a tendency to happen in a way that slowly leads in the direction of a greater purpose, often without the person realizing it. They may find themselves just at that right place at the right time, coaching with you and evaluating how to continue the momentum forward toward their higher purpose. 

Life Changing Experiences (Coach)

Worksheets: Coincidences
3 pages

Beyond the three-dimensional world of cause and effect, coincidences, often referred to as synchronicities, give us the experience of that which is beyond. These events are totally unrelated; however, they align in special, unexpected, unexplainable ways beyond what can be rationalized. Looking back at your timeline, you may see some of those events and recall how they came to be through “coincidental” ways.

Coincidences (Client)

When working with clients who are open to the notion of synchronicity and coincidences and recognize the higher calling contained within them, this segment of the coaching process can be a lot of fun. Not only is it helpful to have your client recall coincidental experiences that may have lead them along their path to their current place of purpose, but it's important to actively discuss current coincidences that occur during the coaching process.

Coincidences (Coach)
Eliminating Limiting Beliefs
16 Lectures 02:04:54
Worksheets: Eliminating B.S.
1 page

We all have limiting beliefs, whether they were created by us, people around us, or society. The most powerful thing that you can do is be able to really look at the BS (believe systems). If you look hard enough you will find that there is evidence that will contradict that BS. Once you find something that contradicts it, what you will find is that more and more evidence will start to present itself, like a snowball effect. Before you know it what will happen is that BS will be a thing of the past.
Eliminating BS (Client)

Overcoming negative thinking and belief systems is a powerful key to long term success and following through on fulfilling one's purpose.

Changing B.S. 1 (Coach)

Even if your clients determine a purpose which they would like to pursue, they will encounter internal obstacles, resistance to change, caused by some of the limiting beliefs that they hold. The activities we have in the course related to beliefs are useful tools to use with your clients, but in addition to that it's important that you go into it with a deeper understanding of how to change beliefs, as well as some of the common beliefs that may need changing in order for your clients to follow through on pursuing their dreams. 

Changing B.S. 2 (Coach)

Worksheets: Empowering Beliefs
2 pages

There are very common limiting belief systems that are passed from generation to generation and person to person much like a virus—a mind virus. These sneaky viruses usually go undetected because they are so common, or normal, in our society that one rarely even notices that they have been infected. For this reason, they're really easy to spread.

The good news is there is an easy cure—awareness! One you become aware of one of these buggers you can choose to believe something different, immediately killing the virus!

Empowering BS (Client)

Common limiting beliefs that stop people from changing their lives and living their purpose often are surrounding the notion of things they “have to” do. The forbidden word “should.” A client may have a great passion for something that they've been told is inappropriate. They may have a talent they've always wanted to use, but they've been told it's unrealistic that they'd be successful with it. This is why we had a section that addressed roles. Often we're taught to play roles that then prevent us for following what we truly desire.

Empowering Beliefs 1 (Coach)

How to coach your clients to change their beliefs and practice empowering thoughts.

Empowering Beliefs 2 (Coach)

Worksheets: Say No To But
1 page

Replace your excuses with commitments!

Just as with the “mind viruses” above, we all have common phrases we've picked up from our families and cultures that are nothing more than excuses. By becoming aware of them, questioning them, and changing the way we view the underlying fears behind them, we can change the way we think and empower ourselves!

Say No to Buts (Client)

Be prepared for the most common source of resistance that your clients may experience and the excuses or "buts" they may use to object to change. Use tools to work through these potential limits.

Eliminating Excuses and "Buts" (Coach)

Worksheets: Take Your Power Back
1 page

Most of us are operating on low power levels. Why? Because we give our power. How? By allowing other people's actions and beliefs to affect us. By using our energy directing our attention toward negative things or toward other people. Your ability to live in alignment with your purpose will be amplified by taking your power back! Answer the questions below and evaluate how much power you give away—and then take it back!

Your Power (Client)

This section is an exciting opportunity, as a coach, to truly empower your clients! In order for anyone to live in alignment with their higher purpose, they first have to be willing to honor themselves. It is very common that people develop beliefs that cause them to sacrifice what they want in their lives for what they think they’re supposed to do for others. Chances are that a client who wants to “discover their purpose” is at a place where they are at least willing to take back their power, however they will most likely still need encouragement to follow through.

Taking Back Your Power (Coach)

Worksheets: Rewriting Your Story.
6 pages

We are all natural story tellers, and so we automatically tell ourselves and others a story of who we are and how the world works. This story is told by default, based on the beliefs we picked up about our self and the world and our own personal experience. When we tell these stories, we are usually not aware. Even if we are aware, we often don't know why we tell what we tell, and the story is not necessarily based on fact.

After completing each of the stepping stones, it's time to look at the insights that your client has gleaned from their exploration and see what stands out.

Now that you have DISCOVERED YOUR PURPOSE and eliminated the limitations that have been holding you back, it’s time to put your newfound mission out to the world by writing your MANIFESTO! A manifesto is a declaration of your beliefs, opinions, motives, and intentions.
