I discovered my values and I discovered my purpose

After Foundation of Coaching Success, I discovered my values. I discovered my purpose. It's through the community, through the connectedness, through the contribution, for the support that I become more congruent and whole and able to love, give the love to myself first, so invest the time back to me.

"I discovered my values and I discovered my purpose"

How long have you been with us for now?

Since July, 2017.

At the Foundation of Coaching Success in September. It made me realize that I was hiding behind this happy outgoing mask, that I'm meeting expectation of all the other people around me like my parents, family, everyone else.

I'm just meeting the expectation of everyone, but not my own. It didn't occur to me until that moment, and you sort of just go, "Well, what am I going to do about it?" If I don't do something about this, I'm still hiding behind this business.

I'm still fulfilling being a mother of two. My marriage also just broke down just then, and it also set me to go, "Well, what is that leading to?"

"What's next?"

I want a journey of searching, so who am I? What's my purpose? What do I love doing? Foundation of Coaching Success really made me see the pathway of where I can go.

“Yeah, you guys are here for me. There's so much support, so much love, so much connectivity, so much champion, so much go, "We've got you." You guys see the potential in me before I see it in me myself, and so that's fantastic. More than fantastic. There's a better word for that. Extraordinary...”

I've seen you be more of a professional part of you. What's it like?

After Foundation of Coaching Success, I discovered my values. I discovered my purpose. It's through the community, through the connectedness, through the contribution, for the support that I become more congruent and whole and able to love, give the love to myself first, so invest the time back to me.

Then able to just be every aspect of me so that I can become whole. By tapping into all that aspect of me that wasn't there before because it's been hiding, I've become a better mother. I become a better daughter to my dad. I'm having a conversation with my dad that I could never had before.

I can talk to him about things that I don't know how to talk to him about in the past, and he's opened up so much more to me about family matters. We're on a different level relationship with my dad.

Same with my kids. Now I'm much more calmer, much, much more congruent and able to give them more love. Before, I loved them. I don't know how to show it. Now I'm able to embrace that and show them what is mean to give love.

I really want to acknowledge you because as a result of a decision that you made for you, you've been able to give more of yourself to the people that you really love.

That is right, and it's also doing ... I've learned how to say no to things, and what that means is that I'm doing things that's what matter to me the most, and where that's going to lead with my passion. I'm no longer in that, "What am I doing with my life? Am I okay with this?" I'm no longer in that.

I look back and I go, "Wow. This has given me the stepping stone or journey that I'm progressing." I'm progressing in a way that I'm like, "Wow." I'm very grateful and I say yes to the opportunity and that I invested in myself, invested the time and the energy and everything that's possible for me.

The decision that you made to say yes to you and to come along to the Foundations training, what has this journey and that decision meant to you so far?

I no longer recognize the old me. It's life changing. It is more than life changing. I can see myself in one year's time what I'm doing, in three years' time what I'm doing, in five years' time what I'm doing. I have a goal. I have plans. I have steps to the goals. I can break down the step in goal.

"I look back and I go, "Wow. This has given me the stepping stone or journey that I'm progressing." I'm progressing in a way that I'm like, "Wow." I'm very grateful and I say yes to the opportunity and that I invested in myself, invested the time and the energy and everything that's possible for me...”

I'm very grateful for this community, for the support, for the moments I go, "What am I doing? Help."

Yeah, you guys are here for me. There's so much support, so much love, so much connectivity, so much champion, so much go, "We've got you."

You guys see the potential in me before I see it in me myself, and so that's fantastic. More than fantastic. There's a better word for that. Extraordinary.
