ARE YOU FLOURISHING?

Have you created a life you love? Are you feeling the pulse and vibrancy of growing and contributing at your highest levels, in a way that is congruent with your Essence, your Genius? Are you consistently showing up as your best self? Have you reached a plateau and struggled to breakthrough to the next level of joy, energy and performance?

FLOW is an optimal state of consciousness for genius & peak performance.
Your ESSENCE is your natural way of being in the world that adds value without effort.

Have you ever asked yourself how you can fulfill your potential in this lifetime? Or what life wants to emerge through you? There’s a powerful impulse awakening within you. A deep inner yearning to become all that you are capable of being. It’s the growing awareness that you are not living your life at the level you know you’re capable of. The feeling that in spite of all of your success and accomplishments, that you have so much more to express and give, just waiting beneath the surface, ready to emerge. You may be experiencing this as an unwillingness to settle, or the rising inspiration to become all that you know you are capable of being in this life.
If you’ve reached this point, it’s because you’ve already done a lot you can be proud of. You might be an achieving leader, entrepreneur, innovator, artist, teacher, and maybe even a game changer and you have a strong desire to make a difference. Most of the essential needs of your life are met, and from an outsider’s perspective, it may already look like you’ve “made it”.  And yet, even though you’ve already accomplished so much, you can still sense that you’re just scratching the surface of what you’re truly capable of. There are just too many days you don’t feel as driven, as motivated, or as focused as you really want to. Too often you are haunted by fear, uncertainty, confusion, exhaustion, overwhelm and doubt. And this is more common than you might think!
The good news is that if you’re feeling any of this, it’s no accident… The fact that you’re feeling this growing sense of dissatisfaction, and the yearning to become more, is clear a sign that you’re on the cusp of one of the most significant turning points of your life. You are on the verge of making the momentous leap, where your deepest motivations are shifting from what the renowned developmental psychologist Abraham Maslow called “self-esteem” needs to “self-actualization” needs. If you’re experiencing any of this, it’s a clear sign that you are undergoing a powerful shift. You are now ready to consciously engage with the process of self-actualization. And the truth is, not only are you ready, you simply must…

“What you can be, you must be. This need we call self-actualization.” – Abraham Maslow

You know that this is not about playing a game of self-interest, status-seeking, scarcity, and survival, since you may find that winning that game is actually losing. There’s another way to show up for your life that is more natural: To live from Essence, Abundance, Service, and Trust. If you want to fully express your Essence in the world, you are on the right place! No one can do it alone. Aspirational entrepreneurs, leaders, statesmen, artists and athletes have all used council to get their best work out in the world. They have used coaches to find their greatness.

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” – Joseph Campbell

Get the exceptional support of professional neuroscience-backed flow & high performance coaching to guide you to your next level of performance, and to help you to find more flow on your quest to self-actualization. Your Essence is calling you. It’s what you’re longing for. Finding your Essence is a quest. And that is the adventure I would love to support you on. “That call for adventure comes when you have overstayed your welcome in your comfort zone.” (Robert Ellis)

Flow is a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.

You know that what you need to do is possible to do, even though difficult, and sense of time disappears. You forget yourself. You feel part of something larger.

Being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.

If it’s your time for a dramatic change and rapid advancement in your professional and personal life, then I’d like to work with you one-on-one to break through your barriers and help you reach your highest potential in all you do. To begin, click on the blue button to apply for your complimentary Coaching Dream Session. If during this consult we find the right chemistry, we might decide to engage in a Flow & High Performance Coaching collaboration. Let’s get you into your flow!

Flow is a state of total, pleasurable immersion in an activity. It is that mental state when you’re so soaked into the moment that you seem to forget about everything else – being at “one” with the action. It’s what athletes often describe as “being in the zone”. In fact, every legendary athlete, Olympian, Champion – they’ve all mastered this state of being, in order to become number 1. It is the same state that musicians, artist, poets, writers and business executives all report while performing their skills at an optimal level.

“Become what you are.” – Alan Watts

It takes courage to step-up and engage a coach to support you to your next level of performance, to help you find your flow and stay at it more often. You will know it and feel it when the adventure calls you. No one can do it for you. Everything is possible but the choice is yours to make. To live up to your potential and consistently show up as your best self is about tapping into the “upper possibility space of the human experience” (Steven Kotler, Mapping Cloud 9).

High performance is about having your biology work for you rather than against you. High performance comes down to focus and attention. Even if you are clear on your goals and have all the motivation in the world you have to be able to focus in order to channel that motivation, use your time well, and execute all the actions that lead to a vision being made real.
The other side of flourishing is languishing. It is a mental state of emptiness and stagnation – when we feel joyless and aimless. It feels like you are muddling. Neither depressed nor flourishing, you just feel flat.

“The great thing then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.” – William James

In the age of digital disruption, sustainability and regeneration, the role of leaders has changed dramatically. The demands are both greater and far different than ever before. Leaders must drive results faster, be more accessible and fully energized for all stakeholders, be more authentic and be prepared to engage and lead on key social issues. They need to lead in an environment of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA), and lead with a VISION of the better future.

I help leaders access the sweet spot between leading a healthy, balanced life and sustaining high performance. I help them maximize energy and improve wellbeing – fueling higher performance and inspiring purposeful living. To become physically energized, mentally focused and fully engaged in the moments that matter – for real results at work and at home.


Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
