CERTIFIED LIFE & SUCCESS COACH, JSCS
BIG DAY TODAY, the first day of the rest of my life… 🎉
Read on to learn about how the timelines unraveled…
If you had asked me about becoming a life coach a few months back I would have laughed at you (imagine the most hysterical kinda laughter), cuz becoming a life coach was NEVER a part of the plan, wasn’t ever even a part of my wildest dreams (just like quitting a well-paying, cushy corporate job on Wall Street and becoming a full-time blogger never was, but here we are 4+ years in and still loving it).
That’s the thing about desire (that deep innate desire where you know this isn’t it but don’t know what else is, and that’s ok, cuz you will find out when you are ready for the answers, or so I believe and it’s how my life has been all long).
July 2020 – 6 months mid-year goals review (the hubs and I do a quarterly review). But let’s rewind a bit, shall we!?
And be sure to read in the most dramatic way possible, cuz that’s me 😀
When I wrote my goals for 2020, I put down ‘figure out the next step’ for my career/business/brand. Growing numbers in all aspects could be a goal, but that wasn’t it for me (never is), doesn’t remotely fill my cup!
Still had no clue about the ‘next step’ but there was a sign and like an idiot, I completely missed it (or maybe I was subconsciously connecting the dots, I tend to do that)! Jay and his team announced JSCS, having no freaking clue what exactly a life coach really is and does, why would I think of becoming one myself!?
That sign became stronger and only this time I saw it too…
JSCS opened its door and I became one of the founding members, WHEW! Wait, what now!?
My reasoning was, ‘even with the worst-case scenario, if nothing else comes out of enrolling in the course, then knowing Jay and what he puts out in the world, then this is going to be a great investment in myself. So it is bound to be extremely useful to me, especially given the self-development and personal growth junkie that I am’. So, I really had nothing to lose, only everything to gain, and the worst-case scenario didn’t even exist!
P.S. You will only see the signs when you are really ready! So in hindsight, there was some work to be done there… and I realized what it was when I finally saw the signs, oh universe!
Also, not to forget that the world as we knew it completely turned upside down!
I didn’t really do much (rather anything at all) about JSCS as I was solely focused on publishing helpful resources on my platforms + PIVOTing (both in Mar and Apr).
Also, my birth month, I was born again, a much more evolved person!
Wait a sec, I can graduate from the course anytime I want!? Why did I assume differently (you know what they say about assumptions).
Now it was time to go full force, once I went through the course and I coached for the first time, suddenly it became all too clear, and life hasn’t been the same since!
That was a major ‘aha moment’ for me!
THIS RIGHT HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM MEANT TO DO!!!
Between May & June, I spent upwards of 400+ hours doing everything related to the course. Nope, I am not one bit exaggerating about the number of hours, if I am passionate about something I go all in!
I coached others for 40+ hours before my JSCS Exams and have witnessed an amazing transformation happen right before my eyes!
Except thrice: 1) The client and I weren’t a match (yes, coach-coachee chemistry is extremely important), 2) The client wasn’t coachable yet (yep, equally important for the coachee/client to be ready to take that next step) 3) The client was disappointed – she was expecting that I will be a mentor and failed to see the value of a coach Vs. mentor (this was a great learning experience for me).
But the rest of the times… I have been so TOUCHED & HUMBLED by all the great feedback that I have received from the people that I have coached so far!!!
My clients (coachees) have been so kind with their compliments! They say that I am a natural at this (life coaching) and hence they thought that I was a seasoned life coach (and that I was enrolled in JSCS just for Jay’s Certification). Nope, had no clue what a (real) life coach is/does until recently! Not putting this out there to brag, but to say why I have felt like this is exactly what I am meant to do, I think this is a gift that I have been given, and to finally be able to use my gifts and strengths to help and serve others gives me the chills.
P.S. Though it’s true though that I wouldn’t have become a Life & Success Coach if not for Jay’s Certification School!
I also got myself a life coach, duh! By now I knew first hand what a life coach is capable of doing, so I knew that this had to be the first thing I had to do…
THIS HAS BEEN MY BIGGEST REVELATION…
Everyone needs a life coach, no matter how successful, happy, and driven you are in life! Not saying this because I am one now, but because I have been blessed to see the real power of it!
JSCS Exam, on June 24th (same day 5 years ago was life-changing for the hubs and me when we moved from New York to Seattle, and here we are again, the same date, and another life-changing moment!). There’s something about this date I tell ya!
Remember? the restless monkey? yeah, that was me, almost all of June, haha.
TODAY, July 1st!
Did I already say that I am over the moon excited!?
I know this is just the beginning and I have the rest of my life to manifest those dreams, one goal at a time! All while using my strengths and gifts to help you and serve you!!
To each and every one of you who has supported me and my ‘vague’ dreams all along, means the world! I’m forever grateful to you & all your love!
And I can’t thank my stars enough for all the opportunities that have been bestowed upon me, and to Jay Shetty Certification School (Jay, Madina, the supervisors, my fellow students/coaches, and my clients) 🙏🏾
SKY IS THE ONLY LIMIT… both for you and me, and you are only one phone call away from taking control of your life, more details here.
