How’s it going?
Hope you are doing well.
Boy I sure did eat a lot over the last couple of days
but it’s good because I have lost 9 pounds and I do
NOT want to. I am actually under my target weight
so I am going to try to gain weight over the next month
Well enough with that.
I wanted to talk about something that’s a major
secret to bipolar success and success in general.
It’s something that has taken me a long time
to figure out.
It’s something that has helped me tremendously.
It’s something that helped my mom tremendously.
It’s something that has helped so many people
but people don’t really talk about it.
What is it? It’s called personal coaching.
I have been mentioning this over the last
I totally believe in personal coaching. I
actually have hired and used many coaches.
Right now I have 6 coaches. I think some
people think that I figure it all out myself.
My mom has 4 coaches. It might sound odd
but coaching is the way to cut down on
how long it takes to reach a goal.
Here is an article that I wrote that talks
about the benefits of coaching. Take a look:
Benefits of Personal Coaching
Personal Coaching is a general term that is used in
the specific fields of: business, executive, life,
career, and interpersonal relationships. It is also
used to differentiate this coaching process from the
more popular type of sports coaching; although, both
Personal Coaching and sports coaching do have the
same origin, and are similar in many ways.
Personal Coaching involves more of a relationship,
however, than does sports coaching, and is defined
and designed in a relationship agreement between a
coach and their client. This relationship is based
on the client’s expressed personal interests, goals,
Personal Coaching is a learning process. The Personal
Coach can use reflection, inquiry, requests and/or
discussion as ways to help the client identify
his/her business, personal, and relationship goals.
Then they can develop strategies and form action plans
intended to achieve those goals.
A Personal Coach provides a way for clients to be
held accountable to themselves, which benefits the
client by monitoring their progress towards the
success of their action plans. Together, the coach
and their client implement and modify the plan as
they go, working with what best suits the client’s
needs – business, executive, life, and career – as
well as dating and interpersonal relationships.
A Personal Coach acts as a “human mirror” for clients
by sharing an objective, unbiased, outside perspective
on what they are observing about their clients.
For example, a Personal Coach can teach specific
skills and insights which can empower the client
to reach their personal goals. Finally, a Personal
Coach can encourage the client to celebrate the
achievement of those goals.
Clients are the ones who are responsible for their
own achievements and successes. The Personal Coach
may assist, but it is the client who actually takes
action; and although the Personal Coach is in the
role of assistant, he/she never does more than the
client. Therefore, a coach cannot and does not
promise that a client will attain specific goals
or perform any specific action – they can/will only
coach them towards the achievement of those specific
actions or goals.
Personal Coaching is not therapy or counseling.
However, the client may see other mental health
professionals to meet their needs through those
specific methods, if necessary. The Personal
Coach recognizes his/her limitations, and will
refer the client for other professional services
as is ethically required.
Coaching is super important especially
with bipolar disorder.
In my courses/systems below:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
many told me that the feel like when
they are reading the documents or listening
to the audios, I am talking directly to
The reason is, I worked hard to put it
all together and I know what you need
to learn when dealing with bipolar
disorder so the fact that you feel
the material is in harmony with you
is no surprise.
The reason why I am starting a coaching
program is because so many people said
that they wanted to get my courses/systems
and also work one on one with me.
I have met a whole lot of people that
have a great doctor, therapist and coach.
For the most part it’s a life coach.
I have only heard of one coach that specially
deals with bipolar disorder. I guess I will
be the second one 🙂
Like I have said, I didn’t have a structured
program so I always said no.
At 5:00pm EST today, I am going to be launching
my program. Unfortunately I can only take 20
people. I don’t have any more time than that.
This way I can do a super great job with
a limited number of people.
I had a few coaches a while back that had
to many clients and really never were
able to focus on me. I don’t want my program
to be like that.
The other thing that I find with bipolar
disorder is that it kind of paralyzes people.
It causes them to be almost stuck doing
the same old thing over and over and over
again. For YEARS. I look at my dad. He seriously
got stuck for years. He really should have gotten
a coach or outsider to give him some advice.
He agrees with me today about this.
It’s interesting. My mom totally believes in coaching
and my dad kind of does. My dad is a believe in doing
it all himself and figuring it all out himself
which doesn’t make much sense to me.
If you are wondering what coaches my mom
has, I will tell you. She has a coach for
computers. A coach for working out. A job
coach and I am her coach as well.
Recently I have been kind of amazed how many
super successful people I know that had coaches.
Whether it’s in weight training, computers, going
to college, dance, bipolar disorder, business,
fishing, photography, etc, I know one or more
people getting coached.
I really find that people that want to figure
it all out themselves wind up never really reaching
their goals. It’s sad but true.
Anyway, if you want to work one on one with me,
for non medical and non legal coaching, please
check your email at 5:00pm today and read
about my program. Just remember I am limiting
it to only 20 people.
The details on the cost and how it works will
be on the page later today.
Hey I have to run, catch you tomorrow.
