When you need to make a change in your behavior, we all know it's not easy. If it was easy, we would all be thin, strong, flexible, wealthy, effective and contributing to society in amazing ways. We would be on time, with the oil changed regularly, no leaky faucets, no missed appointments and doing it all with a peaceful demeanor.
Life Coaches are expert at helping facilitate meaningful change in those who are fed up with less in their life. We want you to have the best ideas for both "the what and the how" of that change. We want as many options on the table to position our clients to make great decisions and help them discover powerful reasons for making that change.

Addressing our vocabulary isn't necessarily a moral work. It's a creative work!
With a quick Google search you can find articles telling us, that it's the really smart people who use curse words in their daily conversation but I don't think that's true. It's more likely a lack of creativity.
