Who better to coach you than someone who has been down that same path as you have? Research shows an increase of success and effectiveness by up to 86% when you engage a coach versus going the road alone, using a do-it-yourself approach.
Would you like to get to the root of the cause that is holding you back from living your optimal life? Do you want to be the very best you can be and experience all you’ve ever desired and invisioned? Do you want to feel empowered to live your true purpose and a authentic life, every day but you have been either too busy or too fearful or just haven’t known how to achieve your Uber Empowered Self? Maybe you have encountered a time in your life when you had to go down a whole new direction than you never expected? How did you cope? I have been there. More than once. And this is why I wrote Uber Empowerment -To give you the tools you need to transform your life to operate at YOUR peak performance – YOUR Uber Best! Even during unexpected times. Let me share with you my story.
Several years ago, I had just gone through a divorce, I was searching for a way to move on in my life, in the most positive way. I quickly figured out running 10k races helped me set goals, have an action plan, train and focus. I felt more empowered and confident.I enjoyed seeing results from my consistant training. At the time I started writing Uber Empowerment, I was winning a lot of 10k races. I became familiar with how it feels to know you did your best at something and know that the results I see in my life are from all the choices I make. I was feeling pretty Uber!
A friend of mine was very curious as to what I was doing for my training. She encourged me to write a book about what was I eating, how often I ran – was it every day? How many miles a week? I thought about this and I couldn’t pin down exactly what to tell others to eat to win a race. I could only provide them with my personal experience and my professional knowledge in living a healhty lifestyle. I realized that it was much more than what I eat or how many miles I run; it was all about the right Mindset. I decided to put an e-book together. The title had not even been created yet, at this point.
I had started writing my book and gathering my research, when I came across a company I fully resonated with. This company was one of the top vitamin/supplement manufacturers. Even though I was currently happy at the place I was working, I knew there was more for me at this company. I have always had a natural interest in health and wellness and nutrition and exercise – Ever since I was 8 years old, I would read any book or magazine that was health related. I couldn’t read enough!
I decided to listen to my intuition and send my resume. They called me the next day and explained they wanted to talk with me. I discovered in the interview that the territory would be a hike of a commute every day. I thought it over – should I move closer to my territory? Not an option. I didn’t want to leave the beach. I contacted the manager I had met with and told her how much I felt I belonged with this company but the territory that was available was not going to work for me. She told me she wanted to contact me with in six months because she was trying to grow her team. I heard back from her in just two months. This was meant to be! I know what it feels like to listen to your intuition and to actually take action and make something happen. This is an empowering feeling.
The education and experience I was receiving in the corporate world, inspired me to do more research and learning on my own. There is a lot of information out there and it can get overwhelming! I tried various diets to see if they really would give me more energy or do what they promised. What I found was, there is just no one diet that does it for everyone. It takes time and experimenting but I truly believe that all of us will find the right nutrition plan for ourselves. We just need to listen to our intuition. I decided I wanted to share my knowledge with others in my book to inspire them to feel empowered in listening to their bodies needs, on a holistic level: learn to know exactly what you need physically, emotionally and spiritually and feel empowermed to take action!
So life is going pretty good right? Well, then I injured myself. The first time in my life where I was actually out of my game for 8 weeks minimum. The first two weeks felt wonderful to actually rest. Let’s face it, I was training pretty hard – probably overtraining. I had a fracture on my left foot. Well, as the weeks went on right around the third week, I became discouraged that I could not run during the recovery time period. I got impatient and frustrated by the third week. I actually got despressed for the first time. This experience was not much fun and thankfully, I have always been a person who, after feeling down for few days or so, I do something about it. I looked at this challenge in life as an opportunity to finish my book. The book began to grow! I decided to share my personal experience about my injury and how I was dealing with it. I know what it is like to have an injury for the first time – An injury that is so sever it puts you out of your favorite sport or activity for a length of time. I know what can happen during this time. Like, how easy it is to become discouraged and feel like you’re loosing your physical strength. I have been there and I have noticed how it effects your overall wellbeing. You no longer have your workout routine to look forward to each day that gives you that extra zest for energy through out the day. You can seriously have thoughts about how you will never be able to perform like you once did and thoughts such as: “will I ever recover from this injury”? Life can take on a different feel to it. This is really your perspective on life and the good news is, I have been there and I can inspire you to get through this recovery period. You CAN feel Uber again!
But there was another life challenge I had to face. There is more to my story. The company I was working with got bought out and all kinds of changes took place. I got layed off. Wow…what is next in Nancy’s life? What to do now? I immediately went to go work for a competitor. After all, that is the natural instinct – go fill the void in your life and continue to work in your industry, right? I discovered working for this competitor was not the same feel for me as working for the previous company. Completely managed differently. I lasted a year. I then knew I needed to find my True Purpose. I had an idea of what it was and through some deep thinking, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to combine all of my education, knowledge and experience toward my purpose. I got certified as a professional coach and knew I had made the right decision. I also knew through out my whole being – my book must be completed.
My book began to grow – really grow – into a real book. Not just a short e-book. Now, I decided to create a Second Tier. Discovering your Authentic Uber Self. I wanted to help those who were in a transition in life as well as those who wanted to make a change or they had a great idea and yet they needed some guidance and motivation to make this idea a reality. In order to feel Uber Empowered, it requires a holistic approach. Especially, when we are in a transition in life. It is even more important to give yourself Self-Love through Nutrtion and Exercise that is unique for you and will allow you to feel your Uber Best. I discovered that when I take the best care of myself by living a healthy lifestyle, I can feel my best, think my best and be my best!
However, sometimes life can appear to be limiting us– especially when we’ve made the choice to go for that new and great idea or to choose to live our Authentic True Core Values in life. Our limited belief patterns hold on to us and keep us frozen; we feel we need to live up to other peoples definition of success and ignore what success truly means to us. All of a sudden, we stop being accountable to our action plan that we created. This is where I began Tier Three. I know what it is like to feel stuck, even though you know you have a great idea. I know what it is like to have written an amazing plan only to find you still need some support and encouragement. Is anything holding you back, if so what? Choose to embrace empowerment and I will provide you the tools and help inspire you, with each step, along your journey. Now is the time to Become Your Uber Empowered Self!
