Masterful Life Coaching

>> Thursday

Sometimes it can really help to receive coaching from someone outside your life — someone with whom you have no personal history, no baggage, and no pre-existing patterns of interaction. A coach can help you gain perspective about your life and will listen differently to your goals and feelings than anyone already familiar with you, including yourself.

My wife, Klassy Evans, collaborator and editor of Self-Help Stuff That Works and Principles for Personal Growth, and the creator of How to Handle People Who Bring You Down, has been employing a life coach and it has greatly accelerated progress toward her goals.

For raising your mood, few things work better than blasting through obstacles and gaining traction on your most important goals!

Her coach's name is Bob Boyle. He has considerable practical training in a high-level personal growth environment — he was the Ropes Course Manager of the famous Six Day Course for five years. His job entailed taking a group of untrained volunteers and guiding them through the process of competently running a physically dangerous and emotionally challenging ropes course, which was the high point of the most arduous self-help training course ever devised, and bringing these volunteers up to their maximim level of competence, to do it quickly, and to deliver a perfect performance that week. It had to be perfect. Lives were at stake. "Good enough" was not good enough.

The following week, he got a whole new batch of untrained volunteers to work with. He hardly slept for five years.

This kind of trial-by-fire honed his skill. His ability to cut through nonsense is amazing. He knows the way the mind works, and he knows it so well he is able to prevent you from being taken in by its games and tricks and traps.

If you're ready to take your life to the next level, I highly recommend Bob Boyle for life coaching. His work is about personal growth. It's about commitments and accountability. He commits himself to your goal, so you'll have a powerful personal ally in your process of breaking through the obstacles that have been holding you back.

If you're ready to take the next step — especially if you have something you've wanted for a long time and you haven't gotten it yet — here's an opportunity to step into the future you want.

I asked Bob how he would describe what he does. He said, "I offer people the opportunity to discover who they are so they will be empowered to fulfill their dreams by unleashing their power and creativity." His work is about assisting you in living a bigger life. He will focus your attention on what really matters to you, and give you a clarity you've never had about your goals and who you really are.

The coaching is done over the phone. Bob suggests a three-month commitment with one phone call, 30 - 60 minutes long, once a week. The service costs $250 a month. If you're interested or want to find out more, give Bob Boyle a call: 360-356-6503 or email him at Or check out his web site: Committed Coaching.


Raising Your Mood Will Improve Your Health

>> Sunday

From Science Daily earlier this month, in an article entitled Happiness Improves Health and Lengthens Life, Review Finds, we find more evidence that can help you increase your motivation to take your own mood seriously. This latest review is known as a meta-study. Here's a quote from the article:

The study, in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, is the most comprehensive review so far of the evidence linking happiness to health outcomes. Its lead author, University of Illinois professor emeritus of psychology Ed Diener, who also is a senior scientist for the Gallup Organization, of Princeton, N.J., analyzed long-term studies of human subjects, experimental human and animal trials, and studies that evaluate the health status of people stressed by natural events.

"We reviewed eight different types of studies," Diener said. "And the general conclusion from each type of study is that your subjective well-being — that is, feeling positive about your life, not stressed out, not depressed — contributes to both longevity and better health among healthy populations."

Do something today that will help you feel less depressed, less stressed, or more positive about your life. Here are some ideas to get you started: The Top Ten Ways To Raise Your Mood.
