Back in 1997 when I first became a coach, I loved the idea of helping people “make themselves better.”
Today, I see it a bit differently. We each already are so amazing. We don’t need to make ourselves better.
What I love now: creating the space that allows my clients to recognize and accept their own love and brilliance. I am so tickled when they experience spontaneous episodes of their own Divinity.
I know my work is good when they are kind to themselves. I know my work is good when I am kind to myself. I know we are making great progress when we talk more about relaxing and savoring than about striving and fixing.
