Personal And Professional Success Stories
Sarah’s Life/Work Success Story
In Sarah’s first group coaching session, she listed small, concrete results she wanted to produce: a writing space, a brochure for her freelance communications service, and a circle of friends.
When pushed to stretch for what she most wanted, she crafted a long-term vision of what she wistfully called her “dream cottage.”
Although her vision sounded great to me, others in the group thought her “dream cottage” vision was unrealistic, because Sarah was short on money and living in an expensive part of the country.

Ed’s Story: Uncovering the Structure of Success

This unseen structure prevented him from bringing his vision(s) into being.
His success story explains how he learned to set up a structure that enabled him to integrate his beliefs, and create the results he envisioned.
