The Journey of Self-discovery

The Journey of Self-discovery


The Journey of Self-discovery

In this blog I wanted to talk about the importance of self discovery. I believe we are each here on this planet for a reason. There is a special purpose for each of us. That purpose can sometimes be difficult for us to discover. However, through personal experience I can say you’ll find your purpose in your heart. It’s the place where you can be vulnerable and be open. To truly open your heart is a special and a magical experience. To connect with yourself at the deepest level is where love is, and where you will discover the answers to the questions you have. You can then find your purpose and explore why you are here.

I wish I had discovered this years ago! But then again maybe I knew it and chose to ignore it! Duh!

So how can you connect with yourself and your heart? How can you tap into the energy within?

I am sure there are many ways however, one exercise that I find helpful is to place both hands on your heart, close your eyes, breathe deeply and be truly grateful. Be grateful for your life, the people in it, the wonderful experiences you have, the experiences that are yet to happen and the person you are about to become. If you have any unanswered questions then ask yourself and wait for the response (the response may come to you later in the day).

I want to share this incredible exercise from Tony Robbins called “Heart Breathing” it will take you on a journey where you will have an opportunity to connect with yourself….magic!...enjoy! Click here: HEART BREATHING EXERCISE or in the video shown below.

The Power of Vulnerability

Keeping with the theme of vulnerability I wanted to share this inspiring TED talk from Researcher Brene Brown who during a research project initially focused on human connection went on a journey of self-discovery and discovered the power of vulnerability. I hope you enjoy this as much I did. CLICK HERE for the Brene Brown - TED Talk.

Kev’s BLOG Tip - Productivity:

This is a new feature that will appear in my blogs from now on. These are tips where I share something that has either helped me or my clients to make an improvement in life. In this blog I wanted to share a productivity tip. I have always liked to read books but have sometimes struggled to get the time I wanted to read and those books I bought sat on the shelf gathering dust! A few years ago I discovered AUDIBLE (I am sure there are other platforms by the way). Using Audible I was able to download audio books and listen to them on the move…in my car…on the train or just walking. I have since listened to over 20 books (some three times!). My learning progress has gone through the roof! Why not give it a go?!

I started my career coaching journey with Kev 12 months ago. I can say with all honesty that it's been life changing! He's given me the space and guidance I needed to look at my own thoughts and actions and it's lead to me being able to manage my anxiety and find drive and ambition I didn't know existed! I'd recommend coaching with Kev to anyone!

The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kev’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kev’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kev’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go with Kev.

I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.

I was a bit sceptical when I started Business Coaching. But now I am so pleased I did! Kev managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.

I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together.

Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!

During my sessions with Kevin, he was able to coach me to a much sharper focus on my issues. In a very short time I gained a deeper insight, new learning and a clear way forward. The sessions were delightfully surprising, effective and professionally delivered.

Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.

Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.
