CLARITY, THEN CONFIDENCE
Right about the time I thought floating through life must just be the way of adulthood, a realization hit me:
I have always loved goal-setting. Whether with grades in school, race times in track, or HR initiatives, I would envision the ideal, create a goal, and craft the action plan to reach it. I loved the big-picture thinking along with the satisfaction of checking off milestones along the way.
I asked myself how I could transfer this experience to my life. Then I started doing things differently:
> I uncovered my purpose and wrote it in a clear, concise statement.
> I hired a coach who challenged me, inspired me, and helped build the courage and skills to pursue my dreams. (I’ve had a coach ever since!)
> I clarified my values, which answered SO many questions and cleared my path immensely.
> I surrounded myself with positive people who supported my growth, and for whom I could do the same.
> I did the mindset work to continually remember who and how I want to be in the world .
All of this brought an undeniable level of clarity. With that clarity came inspired actions and small wins. And with each win, my confidence grew and prompted more – and bolder – actions.
Before long, I was making my big dreams and bold goals a reality: I earned a Master’s degree, then a doctorate. I ran a couple of half-marathons, then a marathon. I experienced setbacks along the way, but a greater vision pulled me forward.
And as more and more people asked what I was doing differently and if I could help them do the same, I knew I was onto something.
BUILDING A PURPOSEFUL BUSINESS
So in 2003, with a preschooler, a toddler, and a baby on the way, I founded MAP Professional Development Inc. Blending my education, professional experience, research, and knack for simplifying the complex, I have since coached thousands to achieve bold, inspiring goals that enable them to make a positive, purposeful difference.
I love witnessing the ‘aha!’ moments as clients connect with their core values, leverage their strengths, and accomplish bold and meaningful goals!
Watching them flourish once we design their vision for the future and then again as they achieve it with clarity, confidence, and meaningful action.
Seeing their fulfillment as they positively impact the world.
I am thankful for the deep knowing that this work is part of my purpose – and that my clients experience that same sense of knowing within their own work, leadership, and life, too.
Maybe you have a dream that has rested on the back-burner for years. Maybe an exciting idea keeps popping into your mind but you’ve brushed it aside – until now. Maybe you know you have difference-making greatness within you – you just haven’t fully tapped into it yet.
If this resonates with you, let’s talk. I’d love to support your flourishing!
