Success Coaching Articles, Personal Life Coaching Articles And Life Design Resources to Help You Create What Matters Most
Although I've been a personal life coach for 25 years, writing has long been a special dream of mine. However, for most of my life I did what many do about what matters most to them - nothing.
I hoped, wished, wanted, and even whined a little about wanting to be a writer. But I did not choose, commit to, and do what truly mattered to me - write. Not very appropriate behavior for a personal coach or success coaching expert.
However, browsing old journals and yearly choice lists, I noticed a different priority - a kind of "Bruce's trip of the year" - at the top of each year's list. I also noticed writing was always second. Always!
Writing, it dawned on me, mattered most. My purpose in life was to be a writer! I was shocked, elated and incredibly energized.
Previously, instead of focusing on what mattered most, I focused on things I thought I "should" do. Or things to earn time and money so, someday, I might be able to do what I most wanted - write.
"Someday?" Yes, I know, "Bad success coach! "Someday never comes. It's always today, always now.
I know that. I teach that. I coach other people to act on that advice. But, hey, like you, I'm only human. I do my best.
I gave myself a very personal life coaching session. I clarified my priorities, assessed my fears and doubts, and made a choice. Now, writing is finally at the top of my list - and I love it!
I'd love to share my some of my personal life coaching articles and other writing with you.
Free Personal Coaching Articles, Success Coaching Booklets and Other Writing
As well as my well-reviewed book Simplicity and Success, and my three very well received e-Books: Emotional Mastery, THRIVE! and Creating Sustainable Success, I'd also like to share the following free success coaching resources with you.
Some of them are life coaching articles, or personal coaching articles. Some are essays about my generic skills framework and process that, when mastered, can be applied to creating almost anything.
Others are about dealing with depression, creating optimisim, building resilience, creating sustainable communities, or developing organizational mastery. There's even one about how I learned to climb frozen waterfalls in the Canadian Rockies. (See Non-Fiction.)
Feel free to use anything that interests you in these writings. Send them to friends. Use them in workshops or leadership programs. Hand them out as course materials. If you're stuck in the woods without kindling, usethem to light your fire.
All I ask is that if you copy and use them for other than your own personal use, please acknowledge me as the writer and make sure the following attribution is attached: Via Personal Life Coach Bruce Elkin http//www.BruceElkin.com
