Fort Myers Professor Helps Others: You Can Too

Fort Myers Professor Uses Coaching Skills To Help Others Win In Life. You Can Too.

FORT MYERS, FL - September 14, 2010 - It's common knowledge that many elite professionals have utilized the services of coaches to help them excel personally and professionally in different areas of business, professional sports and other industries. In fact, American professional golfer, coach and writer Harvey Penick said about coaches, "I learn teaching from teachers. I learn golf from golfers. I learn winning from coaches."

David EsselThe coach provides skills and techniques to help individuals focus and achieve their goals. They hold their clients accountable and support them by providing a safe place to explore new ideas. Through one-on-one or group sessions, clients learn and practice new found skills and techniques which can be used in all areas of life and business to help them reach the success they desire. Today's professionals, from the areas of psychology, information technology, mental health, marketing and even homemaking, are utilizing life coaching skills to enhance their life, their practice and the lives of their families and clients.

Terri Heck is a psychology professor at state college in Fort Myers, Florida. While she was studying to complete her psychology degree in Michigan, a mentor suggested she look into life coaching because he felt she would be successful in the field. After completing her studies, Terri focused on moving to Southwest Florida. The idea of coaching was always in the back of her mind.

One day, she heard Master Life Coach David Essel on the radio, talking with people on the air, addressing their life concerns. Soon, she found herself enrolling for the life coaching certification programs offered through the local state college and Life Coach Universe. To her surprise, she found a "deeper sense of herself and became more self aware" to make positive changes in her life and also help others make positive changes in their lives, leading to everyone's success.

One of the key points she learned from the program is to be mindful of resistance. It surprised her to learn that procrastination was a form of resistance to something deeper. For Terri, this was big news as she learned that procrastination was supported by underlying fears of failing or even fears of success.

"Resistance can show up so subtly, that we really need to be mindful of not only why we are or are not addressing something. Most importantly, once we recognize the resistance, it gives us a chance to get to the bottom of what we need to work on," Terri said. "It is empowering for me and others to allow each person to discover and determine the correct action to achieve success."

So, what does "winning" or "achieving success" mean to anyone? Well, that is something best defined by each person, purely according to one's desires. Yet, it appears, that regardless of the win or success one wishes to achieve, which may include moving past procrastination, writing that book you've always dreamed of, apply for a new job, losing weight or re-create the love in your relationship, it may be very attainable with the help of a coach and one's personal dedication to practicing some new found skills and techniques.

The programs that Terri Heck completed are available through Life Coach Universe. The "Life Mastery/Life Coach Level 1" weekend workshop, led by Master Life Coach David Essel, is held at Fitness On The Move, located at 13010 Metro Parkway, in Fort Myers, FL. The next workshop will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 25th and 26th, from noon-6pm both days. The weekend intensive, plus the 30-day follow-up program, is offered at $850, which includes all course materials.
