Clarity is Power

by Admin November 8, 2009

visualization - life coach techniqueSuppose you went to a store and bought a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle,but it didn't have a picture on the box of what the end result should look like. Would you have a much harder time putting the puzzle together than if you had a clear picture of the end result? Absolutely! You may eventually figure it out but it will take much longer than if you had a clear picture of what the end result will look like.

The same holds true for the goals, dreams and aspirations we have. In life we move towards the images we hold in our minds. When your goal is 'in-sight', things will change dramatically. If you have ever participated in a race, you know the feeling you get when the finish line is in sight. Your pace quickens, you feel the adrenaline flowing through every cell of your body, your mind is focused and you are drawn to the finish line by a force that is nearly unstoppable.

The more precisely you can visualize your goals in life, the things you would like to change, the things you would like to attract, the things you truly desire, the more clearly you will understand how to achieve them. When the goal is in sight, so is the path which will get you there. Clarity is power!

What are the pictures you hold in your mind ? Can you see all the beautiful details? Are those pictures filled with vibrant, bright colors? Are they filled with hope, wonder, love and passion? Can you already experience the excitement, the satisfaction and the feeling of fulfillment?

Picture yourself being the best you can possible be. Hold that image in your mind, day by day, moment by moment, and you will find a way to live the life that will make it real!

"Peak performers develop powerful mental images of the behavior that will lead to the desired results.They see in their mind's eye the result they want, and the actions leading to it." (Charles A. Garfield)

Living Your life on Purpose

by Admin November 2, 2009

What road are you currently traveling on? Are you heading in the right direction? How do you know?
To know where you are on your journey, which direction you need to go, and how to get there, you need a compass to guide you.
Your inner compass represents your purpose in life, calibrated by your core values, principles and the beliefs that support them. You cannot always predict what the road ahead will look like but when you trust your inner compass you will always stay 'on course.'

Like a compass, your unique purpose is a strong source of guidance in times of adversity and challenge. When you come to a crossroad in your life, feel temporarily lost or sidetracked, you can always find your 'true north' when you trust your inner compass.

What is purpose?

Purpose is that special something inside you that gives your life meaning and direction. It is that special something that inspires you, excites you, and makes you feel most alive. To live your life on purpose is to experience the joy of being you in every moment, at work and in your personal life.

Purpose resonates within you at a deep emotional level. It is your responsibility and your greatest joy to discover it, live it and fulfill it.
William Barcley once said, "There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why."
Most people spend about 60% of their active life in work related activities. Research indicates that more than 50% of them are not fully engaged in their work! 

Why are so many people disenchanted with the work they do? What would be the effect in their personal lives?
Perhaps they haven't found a 'compelling' way to integrate their purpose in what they do each and every day. Maybe their purpose no longer fits with that of the company they work for. Perhaps they are so caught up with the 'busy-ness' and urgency of their lives that they make little time to discover what is really important.

Living your life on purpose gives you clarity of vision, even when fog sets in. Living on purpose demands constant reflection about the choices you make along the road. Ignite the spark of your inner purpose and unleash the immense potential within you that will take you to unimagined heights on your life's journey! 

Life purpose coaching can help you find meaning and purpose in your everyday life.

How To Discover Your Purpose Part 1

by Admin August 11, 2009

Life Coach and career coach Dieter Pauwels talks about the power of purpose in your life. Purpose is what gives your life meaning, direction, a sense of significance and fulfillment. Purpose is that special something that inspires you, excites you, and makes you feel most alive. To live your life on purpose is to experience the joy of being you in every moment, at work and in your personal life. Purpose resonates within you at a deep emotional level.

How life coaching can help.
A personal life coach helps people better identify and achieve their personal or career goals. Life coaches assist people in navigating change, overcoming obstacles and creating the results they really want. Life coaching creates the capacity for continuous improvement, development and success. A life coach relationship enables and supports you to make the best use of your own knowledge, insight, vision, creativity, awareness, determination, external resources and innate ability to learn and develop.

Some people are looking for a life coach because they want a more rewarding relationship, improve their health or find a more exciting career, while others choose a life coach for more business success or to discover their purpose and find a new sense of fulfillment or happiness in their lives with less stress and more balance.

101 Ways To Reduce Stress in Your Life

by Dieter Pauwels August 9, 2009

101Ways to Reduce Stress This new e-book is intended to create an awareness of stress on physical and mental health and provide you with ready to use tools and strategies to cope more efficiently with the stresses in your life.  To exist in today’s pressure cooker world, and deal with constant change, take the challenge to liberate yourself and manage your personal stress.

Stress affects us all at one point or another, however, once it becomes a regular and uncontrollable part of your life, it should be considered serious. But what if you are “stressed out” and don’t realize it?

As a personal life coach and career consultant, I observe the symptoms often. Signs of increased stress levels can vary from insomnia, depression, anger, aches and pains and high blood pressure. These are only a few ways excess stress affects the body and mind. Alcohol, drug problems, heart attack and stroke, can occur if high stress levels are ignored.

You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to learn what self-help techniques are available to get your life back on track.

There are plenty of stress reducing self-help tips, strategies and techniques to choose from in my e-book. They are economical, easy to use and have tremendous potential to reduce the stress in your life. You can read a few tips before you start your day, or keep them at your bedside and implant them in your mind before retiring at night.  Implement the tips, thoughts and life coaching strategies that pertain to your situation when the opportunity arises, or create your own opportunity to reduce the stresses in your life.

Living in a world without any stress at all would be very dull.  Once you understand your own stress patterns and have learned ways to manage them, your health and disposition will improve.

Managing Oneself

by Admin August 3, 2009

Peter Drucker, widely considered to be "the father of modern management”, was one of the most brilliant and insightful thinkers and writers on management in the history of mankind.

Reading what he said in 1999 about “Managing Oneself” has inspired my current work as professional life coach and career consultant. I wanted to share some of his thoughts.

Peter Drucker, in his own words....

“In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long term perspective, I think it is very probable that the most important event these historians will see is not technology, it is not the Internet, it is not e-commerce. It is an unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time, substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And let me say, we are totally unprepared for it.”

We will have to learn where we belong, what our strengths are, what we have to learn so that we get the full benefit from it, where our defects are, what we are not good at, what our values are. For the first time in human history, we will have to learn to take responsibility for managing ourselves. And as I said, this is probably a much greater challenge than any technology – a change in the human condition. Nobody teaches it – no school, no college – and it probably will be another hundred years before they teach it.

In the mean time, the achievers, and I don’t mean millionaires, but rather the ones who want to make a contribution, who want to lead a fulfilling life, and want to feel that there is some purpose in their being on this earth. They will have to learn something which, only a few years ago, a very few super achieves ever knew. They will have to learn to manage themselves, to build on their strengths, to build on their values.”

Do I Need a Life Coach?

by Dieter Pauwels July 28, 2009

life coachLife coaching? As if your life needs a coach? 
I would be the first to admit that the term life coach is a pretty loaded term that might even sound a bit spacious and pretentious to some.  Perhaps personal development coaching is a better term for what life coaching or personal coaching is all about.
Increasingly people everywhere are starting to re-evaluate their life's direction and purpose.  People not only want a deeper sense of fulfillment, they also want to feel significant and regain control over their lives.

Most often people seek to work with a personal life coach because they would like to change, achieve or create something in their personal lives or careers. From the outside looking in they might appear to have it all together, yet they feel something is missing. They feel they can do better or achieve more. They come to life coaching because they feel they deserve to invest in themselves, without feeling that there is something wrong with them.

Some life coaching clients want a more rewarding relationship, develop a healthier lifestyle, a more exciting career, while others want more business success or seek a renewed new sense of fulfillment, balance or purpose in their lives. Others seek the guidance from a professional coach to navigate change during turbulent times or when faced with adversity.

Life coaching creates a relationship to support people in managing themselves more effectively and helps them achieve a higher level of personal and career success.  Professional coaching provides the structure, support, feedback, learning and accountability to help people realize their personal potential.

Every coach has his or her own personal style. I use a synthesis of different strategies adopted from current professional coaching models - The Inner Game, G.R.O.W., Co-Active Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Positive Psychology - together with insights from business and philosophy.

My intention and goal as a professional life coach is to

  • provide you with the tools and strategies to create the results you want  
  • challenge and motivate you to take action toward your goals
  • improve your critical thinking ability to enhance your decision making skills
  • provide feedback, support and accountability
  • help your overcome mental barriers and self-limiting beliefs
  • improve your self confidence and authentic sense of self
  • create a compelling vision for your future with clear action steps

The best way to understand the true value and potential benefits of life coaching is to experience it personally. Until you've had the experience of coaching, it will remain a concept in your mind. You can schedule a free 45 minute coaching introduction at www.dieterpauwels.com All life coaching services are available in person or over the phone.

Working with a lifecoach is the most powerful tool when people are committed to personal development and self improvement. Coaching is a means to an end, helping people lead more satisfying and happier lives.

Awaken The Leader Within You

by Dieter Pauwels June 29, 2009

Leadership Life CoachingIn 1937, during the Great Depression, Napoleon Hill wrote “Think and Grow Rich” – one of the best books ever written on the subject of personal development and success. Napoleon Hill has inspired millions of people and has been a major influence in the work of today’s biggest motivational speakers and coaches, including Steven Covey and Anthony Robbins.

In his book, Napoleon Hill discusses eleven traits of successful leaders. Not only are these leadership characteristics essential in any professional leadership role, more importantly, they can serve you as great points of reference in your personal life. You are the leader of your own life. You shape your destiny based on the choices and decisions you make each and every day.

Keep this list in mind as you navigate through your own life’s journey. These cornerstone qualities will heighten your awareness and encourage you to assume full responsibility for your life and become the leader you were meant to be.

Life Coaching Questions:

As you read through the list below, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Which leadership qualities am I consciously expressing in my daily life?
  • What personal qualities are not in alignment with my current lifestyle?
  • What leadership traits are currently not being expressed in my life? What is preventing me from integrating them into my life? How can I become a better steward of my own life?
  • What am I committed to? What choices will I make?


Here are the eleven leadership traits as discussed by Napoleon Hill.

1. Unwavering courage

2. Self control

3. A keen sense of justice

4. Definiteness of decision

5. Definiteness of plans

6. Doing more than one is paid for

7. A pleasing personality

8. Sympathy and understanding

9. Mastery of detail

10. Willingness to assume full responsibility

11. Cooperation
