Do you have hope?
This past week I’ve heard from several people about friends and family members who have committed suicide. This is a difficult subject to talk about but it must be addressed.
I heard a statistic that I haven’t been able to verify but the US has experienced a 600% increase in suicides. It’s a horrendous situation and it doesn’t look like it’s going to change any time soon.
Being a brain-based coach with a passion for helping people through transformational coaching, has been my intention for more than three decades. It’s become clear for me that we live in a thought created world and it’s only through thinking that things are terrible, that terrible feelings are felt and the way we think and feel is the only thing that impacts how we react and respond to all situations.
State of mind is the only factor that matters when it comes to making change and transforming oneself. This has never been more important than right now. The ripple effect of lockdown due to Covid19, has created a negative impact on people. Yes, it’s an awful situation and yes, people have lost so much. But we are resilient as humans and we are designed to adapt and change to the environment. The only time this does not seem possible is when we lose hope. Losing hope is only and ever about our state of mind.
That’s why I created the program “Conversations with Sharon.’ I love teaching this program because from the very first session, I see people shifting their perspective and changing their minds. Sometimes they cannot even say what it is that they heard or felt that helped them to make the changes, but often say “I feel lighter and happier and I can’t really say why.” I love that.
I love it because it means that no techniques or tools are needed to feel better. Feeling better happens naturally when we stop struggling to change and stop telling ourselves the stories that keep us stuck. It’s that simple. You may be reading this and thinking “yeah right…” it can’t be that simple but after all these years, I have seen more people thrive and feel fulfilled by simply understanding this rather than trying to force it.
I’d like to invite you to join Conversations with Sharon 2.0. If you feel unsure that the program might help you, I urge you to read the stories from some of the folk that have completed the program – see below.
