Every day inside your head, you write the unique scripts for your own biography. Some of the chapters in your life’s story are funny, some are on-the- edge-of- your-seat risky and adventure-filled, and some of the chapters are filled with dark, stormy nights, fear and sadness. But they are YOUR stories, and they shaped who you are today.
Somewhere around mid-life, most everyone starts to wonder if their story ending will be happy…or if it will have a sad ending. The great thing about being the leading character in your story is that you are the author. You get to decide what to write. What action do you want to include in the remainder of your story? What elements do you wish to remove or change?
Many people wait too late to think about those two questions. Physicians and caregivers in hospital and hospice environments often hear people express end-of-life-story regrets. These five wishes are among the most common regrets they hear as ordinary people think of the final pages of their story.
Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan…and even speaker/success coach Tony Robbins have realized the value of having a coach. So have many of the most successful people on the planet. Successful people have coaches!
Why? Having a coach gives people an edge. They are able to get more out of themselves than they would on their own. People thinking “I’ll coach myself” are limiting their success potential. Can you afford not to have a coach in your life? It’s costing you already way too much if you are committed to a better life. You won’t regret it, and it can transform your life in ways you never dreamed of!
I'm a clinical director whose workdays are long and intense. My tasks and high-level responsibilities made me feel like some stressed-out hamster running on a wheel. Jeanie helped me focus on core energy dynamic methods that really improved things for me. I was able to see how my thoughts and fears blocked my energy. I learned techniques for awareness, acknowledgement and action. This has not only improved my energy, it has improved my ability to get along better and to use coaching methods to enhance performance in staff who work in my department. Thank you, Jeanie. I would recommend you as a coach without reservation.
Jeanie is the kind of coach who is grounded, smart, easy to talk to and happens to have a great sense of humor! She provides her clients with the opportunity to self-reflect and discover their deepest dreams that they may never have realized. Jeanie helped me set a new course in my life. As a coach she always focused on my needs and was never judgmental. She met me where I was. I loved her openness, warmth, and her upbeat style. Her gift of supportive nudging helped me spread my wings and take off in a way I would never have thought possible. Choosing Jeanie as my coach is something I will always be thankful for. She helps you believe in yourself.
Jeanie has been coaching me for the past several months now, and I can say without a word of a doubt, her program has helped me immensely to move forward. I come from a background of being an over achiever, to having to reinvent the wheel of my life after a traumatic accident. Jeanie has the wonderful ability to capture ones gifts, and help to guide them back to the forefront of one's life. Jeanie 's coaching program has without any reservation, helped to tackle any limiting beliefs I may have from such a setback. I highly recommend Jeanie McKay as a Coach!
Last year my life was on cruise control. I was moving, but I wasn't fulfilled. I signed up for coaching with Jeanie, and I completed the Energy Leadership Assessment. Within a week, she was providing me with powerful insights about my "victim" mentality and helped shift me away from feeling utterly stuck and into higher levels of energy, revitalization, and success in a short amount of time.
It's easy for many of us who are retired to fall into idle habits like watching TV too much, napping, and letting precious days slide by. After all, we're retired! After attending one of Jeanie's Octane for the Brain workshops, I hired her as my coach. Wow! She helped shine the light on many things I had not considered. During the process I set challenging goals for my post-retirement life. I am feeling energetic and younger than I did ten years ago. Thank you, Jeanie. You helped me more than you realize.
I turned to Jeanie for coaching when my hospital workload became overwhelming and my health and confidence started to suffer from the stress. With Jeanie's unconditional support, I recognized where I could make choices in the way I managed my energy and work demands. She helped me realize my goals, power, and ability to react in a positive way. With her coaching and encouragement, I have made many transformative changes at work and at home. I can't say enough good things about the difference the coaching made in my job and life satisfaction.
