What if you could take all your experience, all your wisdom and your business and inter-personal skills and share those with people in their teens and twenties? Who would benefit more? You both would!
This is what I have been doing since 2001 as a part time vocation and full time since 2011. I have to tell you that nothing I have ever done (and I have had a great deal of successful endeavors in my life) has ever felt as good.
What is this job called? A Life Empowerment Coach. Not a life coach. Not a therapist. Not a pharmaceutical dispenser but a Mentor. Someone that has been in the life of clans, groups and tribes for thousands of years until mid-1900’s, a person of a certain age, not tied up in the day-to-day drama of a young person’s life but someone who can help guide them on their own personal path.
This system is simple, powerful but requires a new way of thinking.
What do you tell a young person who is smoking pot 5-6 times a day and wants to do well in school?
How do you respond to a person who tells you that everything they have been telling you for the last six months was untrue but now they are ready to move forward?
What do you do when a person tells you they are thinking of stopping to use their psychiatric meds?
In each of these cases the answers would probably shock you but they worked in helping these young people stay on track and move forward.
The secret is a daily routine comprised of whatever the client wants (to begin with) and eventually includes something self-reflective, something physical and something creative. As they struggle with all the things that stop them from pursuing their goals each and every moment, they learn how to make the medium term goals (they are not ready for long term) and to work on the slow burn.
If this is something that interests you, talk to us about your desire to be this sort of Life Empowerment Coach. You will be required to rise above one to three personal challenges first and see how the system works for you and then learn how to transpose that system for the many different learning styles that there are.
And then you will change people’s lives in a way that is long-lasting, adaptable to all the challenges and opportunities that will come their way and you will have become a true Mentor.
