“If we resist our passions, it is more through their weakness than from our strength”

François de la Rochefoucauld

As individuals we are unique in how we perceive and interact with the world.  Our relationship with our personal core values fuels every choice.  Even beneath the same action is a different “why” for each of us.

As a coach, my intention is to support clients in discovering their motivating values and connect that passion to what they want to create in life.  We capture this in a vision statement; each phrase compelling action towards self-defined wellness.  This living document is a personal call to action.

The quote above implies inaction is a lack of passion.  As the client embraces life in a new way their vision statement shifts as well.  If change is not happening within multiple coaching sessions, we consider if the vision is truly compelling; If it is, what strengths and tools might be used to motivate the client towards that vision.

While a coaching relationship is incredibly powerful, creating your own wellness vision can clarify which actions you choose to support your own wellness.  This is the beginning of a series of exploratory posts to develop a greater understanding of your values, your relationship to them, discovery of your goals, and how your core values can motivate you to create change in your life.
