As a life coach, I can certainly identify with that feeling of hopelessness, degradation, and dereliction. I know how void and desperate life can feel without the guiding principles of spirituality and leadership. I understand your pain, anxiety, depression, and desire to find the good in life. Everything, everyone and EVERY HABIT COUNTS in life, and that’s why I’m here – to help you identify, realize and achieve you goals, dreams, hopes and desires.
I lived trapped in active addiction for more than twenty-five years of my life. For much of that time, I didn’t realize I was caught up in the grip of what I now know as “active addiction.” For many years, I was a functional addict; however, addiction is so cunning, baffling, and powerful, for a long time I didn’t even know I had crossed that invisible line from recreational using into full-blown addiction. I started smoking marijuana at the tender age of twelve. I had been warned by my great-grandmother that if I continued smoking marijuana, before long I would be using that “hard stuff,” as she called it. She was right! Over the years, those “little” joints I regarded as just something I smoked to get high with progressed, leading to drinking alcohol and then onto using cocaine. Eventually, I even graduated to smoking crack cocaine.
At the age of 40, I found myself homeless, hopeless, and penniless. I had 2 pair of pants, 2 shirts and about $8 dollars in my pocket. I had been in the Air Force, attended NYU, worked for IBM and UPS, spent a number of years in corporate America, yet I was very broken human being. I was spiritually, emotionally, and physically bankrupt. The good life was a thing of the past, and I felt broken, in despair and I felt like giving up on life. Where could I turn?
You know there’s more to life, but you’re not sure how to reach out and grab it. Maybe you’re stuck in a rut or trapped in a relationship, job or financial situation that seems hopeless. Perhaps you’ve lost your edge and desire a life that’s richer, deeper and more fulfilling. Addiction might be holding you firm in its grasp while damaging your relationships, job performance and physical health. You could be living a great life but feel unsatisfied, hungry for something and unable to enjoy your blessings.
Maybe you’re seeking your purpose, assistance with setting SMART goals, n or understanding the principles of spirituality. Perhaps you simply want someone to listen to your story and offer suggestions for ways you can tweak your personal, professional, or spiritual development. My daily meditations, videos, blogs, and social media connections are designed to inspire, motivate and encourage you for everyday life. I’m ready to share these “keys to success” and equip you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of.
My primary goal is to help others achieve theirs by breaking free from active addictions that has robbed the lives they were meant to live from the day they were born. As a coach, I help people discover their gifts, which leads to the discovery of their purpose. Through a series of exercises, saying exactly what’s needed to be heard and teaching how to nurture words into actions that yield fruit, we make progress.
