The basic tenants of the Lighten Up Approach:

  1. There is no better time then now to make changes.
    We must “start where we are.” Looking back only serves when the focus is on determining what was ineffective in order to discover more successful alternatives. There are no failures in life, only lessons and feedback.
  2. You cannot hit a target you cannot see.
    In order to make positive changes, you must develop a clear and well-defined picture of what it is that you want. Part of our approach is to clear away the confusion and clutter that may be keeping you from making positive changes.
  3. Discipline is remembering what you want.
    The key to the Lighten Up approach is to help you keep focused, motivated and determined on your path. Discipline is seldom difficult when you feel motivated and excited about what it is that you are doing.
  4. You are what you think you are.
    It is important to examine core beliefs and values to ensure they are compatible with your goals. Working within value systems is the most effective way of remaining on the path to our visions and goals. The plan is not to re-invent the wheel- just to reshape it to get it moving forward!
  5. You must assume you will achieve your goals in order to achieve them.
    This seems so simple- but it is often the hardest thing to realize. Often, people do not find success because they assume success is not truly accessible. We are only limited by the power of our thoughts and belief systems.
  6. You will get out of life coaching what you put into it!
    Trying something new can be daunting, but you deserve to give it your best effort! Choosing Lighten Up Life Coach is an investment in yourself!
