"There is only one success ... to be able to spend your life in your own way."
Over the past couple of months, I've had numerous conversations with older teens and young adults who are unsure about the direction their life is taking. Some are confused, uncertain and stressed about their direction as they are looking ahead to high school graduation with no clear idea of what's next. Some.are heading into their second. third year and even fourth year of college ... studying in a field that no longer excites or even interests them, but uncertain about what they'd rather be doing instead.
In every single one of these conversations, parents are mentioned; not wanting to disappoint their parents, not wanting their parents to butt in, not interested in the career their parents want for them or feeling guilty about how much money their parents are spending on college when they have no clear idea of what they're doing or what direction to take.
Is your teen or young adult trying to find purpose in life? Are they (or are you) feeling anxious, afraid or uncertain about their future? Are you experiencing a lack of confidence about the choices they are making about their future? Are they resistant to your help? Perhaps experiencing physical manifestations of their psychological stress?
Coaching can be so helpful in all of these situations. Coaching helps teens and young adults connect with their passion and purpose, learn how to set goals, develop action plans and provides accountability to help them stay focused and on track. Coaching provides tips, tools and techniques to deal with fear and stress while improving skills, confidence and self esteem ... a recipe for success!

It's official ... I've been accepted into a pretty exclusive mentorship and training program with author and transformational leader, Jack Canfield!
I set this as part of my 5 year plan a year ago. I had with no clear idea, given my life circumstances, how it would be possible. But instead of focusing on doubt, I trusted that my passion, purpose, vision and taking action would fuel the Universe to figure it out. And it did ... in ways that are beyond my comprehension!
Today, in just a year of applying Jack's Success Principles to my life and implementing his Daily Disciplines for Effortless Success, my goal is now a reality.
I first met Jack 30 years ago when I heard him deliver a talk at my first professional development conference. That day I purchased his very first cassette tape series called Self Esteem and Peak Performance, which helped me immensely in my early career days.
Several years ago, I was connected to work again during a session with a teen who cited Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul as being the one thing that helped her get through a very difficult period in her life.
I was connected once again to Jack's work in a synchronistic sort of way. I was kayaking with a friend of mine who told me about a book she was reading and suggested I check it out. I joked with her and told her that I was having trouble adjusting to my 50 year old eyes and didn't enjoy reading much because it forced me to admit that my eyesight was changing. She quickly suggested audio books and gave me a website to visit.
Seriously, I was planning to take care of the vision thing, but was also thinking that listening to audio books would be a very cool thing to do while kayaking. The first book that popped up on the audible.com website was The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. I was going through transition without clear direction and the book was being offered for free with a membership, so I downloaded it onto my computer and started listening to it.
An hour later, it was bright and sunny outside and I had the whole day off to spend on the lake. I went next door and consulted with my teenage neighbor .... my official technology consultant ... and checked into what MP3 player would be best for me to download the Success Principles so I could listen as I kayaked. In just a few minutes, I was off to town and within an hour I was back home syncing the book onto my new MP3 player while I got my kayaking gear ready.
Three months later, despite the fact that I didn't have the resources to support tuition, travel, etc., and as a result of an amazing sequence of manifesting magic, I was live at Breakthrough to Success, Jack's 7 day transformational workshop.
I've been living, teaching and coaching around his success principles ever since. Now, beginning in November, I will be working with Jack personally to help me get better at what I do and to support him in bringing his work to teens and adults in a much bigger way!
There's really something to be said about starting your days with gratitude, following your heart, being clear about what you want, taking consistent action toward your vision, harnessing the power of the subconscious mind and believing that miracles really do happen.

Thanks to the power of social media, email and cell phones, I've been getting daily updates, inspiration and golden nuggets from my friends and colleagues who are attending Breakthrough to Success with Jack Canfield.
It's amazing how the energy from BTS continues to live on in my heart and soul and in my daily life and how the transition and transformation toward living on purpose continues!
Here's one of my favorite nuggets from one of Jack's Success Coaches, Sean Smith. He shares the wisdom found in the music of Jana Stanfield ... the official musician of BTS. She calls herself the Queen of Heavy Mental ... and for very good reason!
I've adopted this song into my daily life as well as the work I do with both adults and teens:

I'm in the middle of teaching a 6 week class for adults titled The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, based on the work of Jack Canfield.
The class begins by exploring core values and life purpose. I am always amazed at how many adults have never taken the time to identify their core values or what their life purpose is.
From there we move on to deciding what we want and goal setting and then developing action plans and a system to support goal achievement. Again, this process is fascinating.
It never fails that old programming, behavior patterns and limiting beliefs come to the surface during this process. The exciting news is that we now know alot about the brain, quantum physics, the Law of Attraction, the power of the subconscious mind and how to reprogram the subconscious mind to overcome limiting beliefs and move toward success and fulfillment
I am always energized when I teach. Not only do I get to learn more about myself as I watch my students learn., but I have the honor of witnessing the transformation that happens when self awareness increases, healing begins and students begin to take purposeful action toward creating a more fulfilling future!
As much as I love introducing new audiences to this material, even more exciting is to work with clients who commit to continuing the process with more in depth 1 on 1 or group coaching committments toward improving their success habits and achieving their goals.
Finally, and in line with my own passion and purpose, I absolutely love sharing this information with teens. Teen brains are not yet hardwired as adult brains are. By doing this work at a young age, effective success habits can be formed at a time when the brain is actively building new neural pathways. This makes it easier to build good habits and begin to connect with purpose at a much younger age, thus supporting teens in creating a life of fulfillment.
I am fortunate to be able to work with teens in the classroom and community settings on a daily basis. I especially love helping teens reframe limiting beliefs and teaching them the tools to empower them to pursue their dreams and goals.
The following article from Success magazine provides some good insight about success habits in teens:

As I've shared here in my blog as well as on my website, alot of my work with teenagers, parents and educators involves discussion around teen sexuality. This week is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Week as designated by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unwanted Pregnancy, and thus inspires today's post.
So, as I see it ...
Sexuality is simply the vehicle through which I am able to connect with teens quickly and build rapport easily. Once the door is open, amazing things happen, including enlightening conversations about whatever teen issue you can think of, why teens do what they do and make the choices they make.
I totally, completely, 100% endorse comprehensive sexuality education for teens. Although this is difficult for some parents to hear, based on my first hand experience wth teens, there is simply no room for argument.
Teens need accurate information about sexuality, healthy relationships, sexual health, pregnancy prevention and decision making. The process should begin in elementary school with an open discussion about puberty and continue through high school and through the early 20's when the brain is fully dseveloped.
Teens will withdraw completely or censor their conversations with parents when they begin to get curious about sexuality (and alcohol and drugs). When I survey teens in 8-12th grade classrooms, the results are pretty clear and consistent. The two most popular reasons teen give me when I ask them why this happens are: 1) they feel as if their curiousity is not in line with parents' values and don't want to disappoint their parents and 2) they fear punishment (particularly around social groups, activities and restrictions) related to being curious or exploring their curiousity.
Another thing I feel strongly about is that in order for teens to reach their fullest potential, teens need support to help them overcome limiting beliefs they may have picked up in childhood that stand in the way of healthy self esteem, pursuing their purpose and realizing their dreams.
Here's where my coaching and hypnosis comes in ... not just for teens, but for adults as well. And not just in the realm of sexuality.
All that said, back to practical, accurate information around teen pregnancy prevention. Check out this link to the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy Quiz at www.stayteen.org
Pass it on to the teens you know, love, inspire. Post it on your social media page. Pass it on to parents of teens you know. Encourage teens to pass it on to their peers.
Teens need accurate, unbiased information upon which to base their decisions. Teens need accurate, unbiased information so they can support their friends in making healthy decisions.
