Yes, the mind is a terrible thing to waste. When we are overwhelmed and bombarded with information through multiple media outlets, our minds can begin to shut down or ignore really important information. I like to refer this as being "sign blind." Being sign blind can be referring to those 50 roadside billboards you drive by to and from work just as it refers to missing the signs of intuitive and inner wisdom information that can guide us to making better and more appropriate decisions in life.
After writing my most recent article on coaching, I realized there is some confusion as to what a Life or Business Coach actually does concerning what roles they play in their clients' lives and how they truly work with a client. So I thought a closer look at the roles of a coach might be in order! Where a coach receives training and certification will most likely provide a unique set of roles.

Restrictions may be held deeper than you realize….. Working with my clients over the last few years, I've come to realize that most individuals say what they think they believe and know but ultimately don't embody the belief. Here’s an example. John hurt himself while doing yard work this week. He has had past issues with neck pain and a lower back ache for a long time.
