BUSINESS CONFIDENCE COACH

My Personal Story

My mission is to help professional men and women overcome the self-doubt and fears that keep them from realizing their full potential in their lives and careers. Surprisingly, many high-achievers secretly wonder… “if I am so smart, talented and capable, why do I feel like an impostor?”

In my 50’s, a divorce rocked my confidence to the core. Overwhelmed with insecurity, I felt unable to put myself “out there” with any self-assurance. Out of necessity, I became a master at faking it. No one would have guessed that I did not feel worthy of serving the clients I wanted to work with. I had been very successful business owner as a corporate interior designer, had earned an MBA in finance, had achieved the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation, was a credentialed coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and one of my clients had won an award for “Business Excellence Achieved through Coaching”.

The truth is, even with all my career and business success, I felt that I never “measured up”. I did not think I deserved the accolades and recognition and believed people complimented me on my work because they were being “nice.” I would come to understand that I suffered from a condition called Impostor Syndrome– a mindset that causes capable people to downplay and dismiss their achievements, and live in fear as being “found out” as the impostors they believe themselves to be.

My own journey to fully internalize my mastery and accomplishments equipped me with the insight and skills to help high-achievers fully own their expertise. I discovered a truly game-changing technique – Emotional Freedom Tapping and used it extensively to release self-defeating beliefs and emotions that would surface at any time and throw me into fear and doubt. Through this life-changing journey, I created a powerful system– Simply Unshakeable – to empower professionals in business to take ownership of their unique talents and command the recognition and financial return they have worked so hard for.

My Coaching Story

Even after becoming a certified coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and one of my clients winning the ICF sanctioned 2006 Prism Award for “Business Excellence Achieved through Coaching,” I still felt that something was missing in my ability to help my clients shortcut the time and energy it took to achieve the results they wanted.

Intentions were identified, goals were set and actions planned that would create the results they sought, but something was happening between sessions that got in the way of their ability to follow through. I came to realize that something else was at play, that there were unconscious hidden agendas that were creating hesitation and procrastination. Not only were the steps not taken, my client were left wondering “what’s the matter with me?”

We know now that the subconscious mind rules our choices and it responds, without judgment, to the programs and perspectives it has adopted. Limiting beliefs, buried emotions and unresolved emotional issues override our conscious desires in frustrating and confusing ways.

Discovering EFT

I discovered the emerging field of energy psychology which recognizes that our thoughts and emotions are intricately connected to our body/mind. Distressing emotions from past experiences can re-emerge in similar situations and unsupportive beliefs can inhibit our choices and capacity to take decisive action.

When I was introduced to Emotional Freedom Techniques, I realized its power to free us from our past, release our emotions and adopt new empowering beliefs about ourselves. I have come to know EFT as the most powerful self-help tool for maximizing our potential in our careers, relationships, health and happiness.

I integrated EFT tapping into my coaching practice ten years ago. Before EFT, it felt like I was coaching with “one arm tied behind my back”. EFT has been the single most profound influence on my capacity to help people heal, grow and transform their lives.

Seven Things that Undermine Confidence – Thing One

Seven Things that Undermine Confidence – Thing One

Seven Things that Undermine Your Natural Confidence:
Thing One

Dear (first name),
In preparation for the upcoming Lunch and Learn on Friday, April 12th, I identified seven things that can undermine natural confidence. You may have come to believe that you need to do something in order to gain or grow your confidence, however, the truth is, you are already confident. Nevertheless, there are common thoughts that destabilise that confidence.
When you recognize the underlying beliefs (which are generally not true), those ideas no longer sabotage your natural capacity to feel self-assured and trust in yourself. You are able to see and accept things the way they are, not how you want or need them to be. You can see the truth of who you are – an intelligent, resourceful person doing your best with the information you have in each moment. You begin to understand that on a spiritual level, there is nothing wrong, everything is unfolding as is for reasons you many not yet comprehend.
Here is Thing One.
Thinking You Need to Be Special
Growing up, you may have been told that you were special, and you absolutely were in the eyes of loving parents. You may have been praised for being cute, precocious and clever. These messages may have had you come to believe that being special meant you were safe, loved and accepted by those you depended on for care.
Perhaps you came to understand that if you excelled in anything – school, sports, art, music – your achievements garnered praise and recognition from others. You learned to please, perform and perfect as a way to guarantee continued appreciation for who you were.
However, current research suggests that the number one cause of anxiety and depression among young people is the belief that they need not only to be special but to be exceptional. Pressure is exerted to get the best marks, get into the best schools, play on the best teams, have the best clothes, friends, etc. These pressures exert a lot of stress and expectations.
What if it was okay to be ordinary? This does not mean that you are not unique, with your own distinctive combination of talent, strengths, intelligences, it means it is okay to be all you are and no more. What would that do for your self-esteem?
Join us for the upcoming Lunch and Learn to further explore your Natural Confidence.
To Your Freedom and Success,
Marlene

Failure as an Option

In Supercoach’ Michael Neill’s book – Creating the Impossible, he provides parameters for taking on your impossible project and differentiates it from something you should, could or ought to do.

Impostor Syndrome: The Silent Saboteur

Impostor Syndrome: The Silent Saboteur

What makes Impostor Syndrome a silent saboteur is that it often goes unrecognized and undiagnosed, even if someone is working with a therapist or coach. Impostor traits may present as chronic anxiety, low self-worth, perfectionism, fear of failure, abrasive personality or difficulties with working collaboratively. The way through? We live in a thought-related experience of reality. Fortunately we can learn to differentiate thoughts and become mindful of those that undermine confidence and worth.

Genius, New Thoughts and Light Bulb Moments

Genius, New Thoughts and Light Bulb Moments

“I used to think that genius was the speed of the computer (the brain) and storage capacity (the mind). It’s not. True genius is new thought. Everybody has the capacity for genius in that sense. It is possible to get quiet enough to have new thought. It is possible to access your genius in a way that takes less work, not more and minimize the energy required to research, analyse or calculate. You can use your own innate wisdom to inspire and guide you.

Ultimate Goals for the New Year

Ultimate Goals for the New Year

A number of years ago, I attended Science of Mind courses offered through the Centre for Positive Living. From time to time we completed an exercise of writing down a total of 100 goals divided into three separate columns under the headings, Be, Do and Have. We repeated this assignment approximately 6 times over the three years – to document our then-current 100 combined Be, Do, Have goals. When setting your Have and Do goals and resolutions this year, I suggest you include some Being states too. These elevated ways of being ultimately lead to greater abundance, health and happiness.
