The Beautiful You Coaching Academy – Our Year of Feeling and Joy
While I know that a lot of people say something like this at the end of a year – I literally cannot believe that 2014 will soon be at a close. I am excited about the freshness and excitement of a new year, but can I also say – slightly suffering from whiplash with wondering – ‘Where did 2014 go?’
This is not because it has idly wandered by and I am now looking back thinking – ‘What did I do?’ It is in fact the opposite, with me having to catch my breath with the knowledge that the Beautiful You Coaching Academy is not even one year old. We celebrate that next month.
If someone had told me that in less than a year we would have run a pilot life coaching course which sold out in a week, followed by four other courses, all which sold out months in advance, I would have told them they were being quite stupid. If they had then added in that leading into the following year we would have sold out another Beautiful You Life Coaching Course, with the one following being 50% gone as well, I likely would have told them that they were stupid and drunk. Truly.
Stupid and drunk.
I feel compelled to share this with you for one main reason.
If you think you cannot achieve something, that you’re just one person, or too small or not experienced enough, or couldn’t ever ‘compete’ or that you will fail – just try. Try yourself on for size. You might just surprise yourself, as I and my beautiful team have done. We didn’t believe we couldn’t do it, but I don’t think either that we had grandiose plans for the amazing success we have experienced. It has happened for many reasons – hard work, dedication, team work, investing in ourselves, focusing on how we have wanted to feel and show up in the world, our mission, our vision, our values, service, care, compassion and so much more.
Most of all though our success has been because of the people who have made a huge leap of faith to train with us and become a Beautiful You Life Coach. Their courage and commitment in choosing the ‘new kid on the block’ when it comes to the world of life coaching schools is not ever something we will forget – or take for granted. It is their faith in us that has made us want to do and give more wherever we possibly could and create a training experience that not only inspires them to become the very best life coach they can be, but the very best person they can be.
And my how they have richly changed my life. (She types with tears welling.) They have returned to me so many of the very best things in life for no other reason than their own magnificence and the gift that I have felt in being a small part of their lives throughout the year. They have shared with me their…
It’s been a year that in so many ways for me is almost indescribable. When I look into the beautiful and giving faces of all these souls who are now Beautiful You Life Coaches, the word that most comes to my heart is joy.
Joy for them being rewarded for working so hard throughout the course and to now be finding their place in the world as a life coach. Joy for the people whose lives I know they are going to change. Joy for the amazing feelings that they are already experiencing as a coach, and will continue to do so as they deepen their relationships with their clients. Joy for the new path that is now there for the taking.
I thank each and every one of them for the light and love they have bought to me personally and to all of us here at Beautiful You HQ. I honour them all so much for the faith they have shown in us and choosing us to train to become a life coach.
They have touched my heart indelibly and will hold space inside it, in a year that will close as being the best of my life.
