The Key to a Powerful and Purposeful Life

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Wednesday, 21 September 2016. Posted in Business Coaching, Business Leadership, Main Blogroll Page, How to Change Your Life

I love to hike in the mountains of North Carolina where I live.  And while I am in decent shape, sometimes the trails are steep and I start to get out of breath.  My inclination is to stop and take a break but from experience I know to keep pushing on until I get to the top.  There is a well-known principle that speaks to this situation, which we can also apply to our lives for greater power and purpose.

Are Assumptions Keeping You Stuck?

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Wednesday, 21 September 2016. Posted in Business Coaching, Business Leadership, Main Blogroll Page, How to Change Your Life

Assumptions are the most emotionally charged of the big four energy blocks. An Assumption is the belief that because something happened in the past, it will happen again. If something that happened carries a strong emotional charge, it can create a huge block that keeps us from repeating similar situations. While this sounds like a good thing, it actually keeps us living in a box that may not serve us.  Here are some examples:

The Importance of Leadership in Business

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Wednesday, 30 September 2015. Posted in Business Coaching, Business Leadership, Main Blogroll Page

The importance of leadership in business cannot be disputed. We can all name charismatic business leaders; for example Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, and Warren Buffet. Because these people have such star quality, we often associate “Leadership” with magical qualities that we are born with, rather than a set of skills that can be acquired by ANYone.

Moving Past Fear

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Wednesday, 02 April 2014. Posted in Business Coaching, Business Leadership, Main Blogroll Page, How to Make a Career Change , How to Change Your Life

Fear is what keeps us from taking action. It seems that for most people, the known - albeit uncomfortable or dissatisfying, is often more comfortable than the unknown. Then at some point, the known becomes so uncomfortable that we force ourselves through the fear to create a new situation. But what if we could save ourselves days, months, even years of living in a dissatisfying situation by actively moving past our fears?

The 4 Things That Keep You Stuck

“If we stay where we are, where we're stuck,

where we're comfortable and safe, we die there." 

                                  - Anne Lamott

Your life (relationships, career, financial situation etc.) is a product of every action you have decided to take or not take in your life. The actions you have taken (or chosen not to take) were determined by your thoughts; your beliefs about yourself (I can, I can’t, I deserve, I don’t deserve etc.) and the world (I am supported, I am alone etc.)

Warts And All

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Thursday, 14 July 2016. Posted in Perfectionism, Business Coaching, Main Blogroll Page, How to Change Your Life

Is your life being hijacked by your childhood belief systems?

Unless you have done extensive inner personal work, emotionally charged experiences in your formative years are likely still running your life.

If you don’t have the life you desire – are you struggling financially? Unable to maintain a long-term relationship? Hate your job? Feel like you are just treading water or going backwards? – then keep reading.

Change Your Attitude, Improve Your Results

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Wednesday, 05 March 2014. Posted in Business Coaching, Business Leadership, Main Blogroll Page, How to Change Your Life

Our thoughts precede and determine our feelings. How we are feeling will determine if we act or do not act in any given situation. Whether we choose the path of action or that of inaction determines our relationships, career, finances…everything in our outer world. So while “change your mind, change your world,” may seem silly or ridiculous, if you break it down into the three steps above, it is absolutely true.
