A Continuation of Growth and Success

“Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look.”
– Marcus Aureluis

Challenge yourself to be successful. . .

Growth is an ongoing process that requires conscientious and continuous focus. It calls for a consistent and dedicated effort to sustain new insights and live the life you truly desire. For this purpose, the Accountability Series was created. By sustaining and deepening the life changes you have made from your initial growth stages with accountability, you can continue the eternal process of fulfilling your passions, purpose and principles and see your dreams become reality.

The Accountability Series was created to help graduates of Life Quest and Life Strategies sustain and deepen the changes they have committed to. Participants meet as a group to share successes, review key concepts from each program and clarify commitments for the future. New topics will be introduced to supplement and expand upon what participants have already learned.

Series participants will also be introduced to a new topic and learn new skills in every session. The topics are chosen because they supplement and expand upon what participants have already learned in the Life Quest and Life Strategies courses. Like our courses, the Accountability Series is designed to be high energy, interactive and experiential so participants can internalize the principles and skills and apply them in day-to-day living. Since participants have approximately four weeks between each session, participants should be able to develop good mastery over the skills before moving on to the next.

Never before has a learning experience contained so much. As participants are about to discover, the Accountability Series combines the best of new information with a group process that will have a tremendous impact on their life.

In this program, participants will learn the following:
  • Creative Visualization – Use imagery to modify your feelings and behavior as well as mentally rehearse and accomplish your life’s vision.
  • Power of Commitment – Act from commitment rather than obligation, and experience the power to produce the results your desire.
  • Sustaining Change – Do a personal inventory on where you are on your Life Quest journey and create a plan to propel you forward.
  • Overcoming Tolerations – Eliminate all of those things that you put up with that drain your energy and distract you from your goals.
  • Intentional Living – Be fully conscious and proactive as you make decisions about how you will live and make use of your time.
  • Empowering Beliefs – Recognize that beliefs define your experience and choose to live from a set of beliefs that empower you in Iiving “on purpose.”
  • Stress-Free – Learn techniques of mind, body and soul to get rid of stress so you are prepared to be your best.
  • Assertiveness – Be clear about your needs and wants, and find ways to take care of them in an atmosphere of respect.
  • Rewrite Your Script – Recognize old, weakening scripts handed to you by others and write a life-script that captures your highest self.
  • A Life of Joy – Rejuvenate your soul by bringing joy into your life on a daily basis.

Coaching

“To have an empowering coaching relationship, the coach must recognize that people have the inherent creativity, intelligence, and tacit knowledge they need to succeed but may need help in gaining access to it.”
– Robert Hargrove

What is coaching?

Coaching is a powerful one-on-one relationship that engages a willing client in a deep and honest exploration of their goals and the actions required to accomplish them. Coaching supports, challenges and holds a client accountable to make consistent (often dramatic) progress towards the realization of his or her most important aspirations. Through coaching people are able to clarify their vision; overcome obstacles; change self-defeating beliefs and habits; build trust and goodwill; turn a business around; double sales or personal productivity; practice inspiring leadership; change an organization’s culture or do whatever else is called for to achieve extraordinary results. People use the coaching relationship to focus on both personal as well as business goals.

Four Pillars of a Vibrant Marriage

“When the glow of romance subsides, couples – even those who have been madly in love – often experience unexpected conflict, disappointment and sadness. They are baffled and may privately wonder where they went “wrong,” or why their partner “changed.”
Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.

Challenge yourself to be successful. . .

For many couples, marriage is a difficult journey. Close to 50% of all marriages end in divorce. And many of those couples who stick it out express dissatisfaction and at some point, seriously consider ending their relationship. Indeed, it has been said that marriage may be the most risky adventure routinely undertaken by the majority of people in our society today.

Although a difficult journey, we believe that an intimate and committed relationship offers the greatest opportunity for personal growth and even joy. This program is designed to support couples in this journey. Participants will learn the four pillars upon which a satisfying and intimate relationship is built as well as numerous skills and practices to help them create such a marriage. Participants, of course, must bring an open mind and willing heart to this process. By doing so, we believe that couples can progress together and find new levels of intimacy and love.

With Four Pillars of a Vibrant Marriage, couples will learn to:
  • Achieve a mature, intimate and satisfying relationship.
  • Avoid the negative communication patterns that lead to power struggles and divorce.
