Six years ago, I was a full time job (that paid). I had quotas and deadlines to meet. It was clear to see my successes and I had a boss who told me otherwise. I had a paycheck that I brought home. The paycheck allowed me to feel like I was contributing something of value and worth in my home. When I had my son, it was clear that financially the best decision was to stay at home. It just didn’t pay for me to work and miss out on valuable time with my son, while paying daycare and only left with pennies to bring home. I’ve never regretted this decision.
Any mom will tell you though that it is almost impossible to meet “quotas and deadlines” in your home with children running around. It’s easy to get down on yourself when you are so used to being an accomplished person. When you are used to someone telling you “good job” everyday. It’s easy to feel like you aren’t worth anything when you bring home nothing financially.
These were just a few of the things I was struggling with when I started working with Bill Esposito, Certified Professional Coach and founder of High Point Coaching. Bill saw how I was letting my negativity and lack of self-confidence get in the way of allowing myself to reach the happiness I deserved.
The first step? The ELI Assessment. I am sure at some point in your life you have taken an assessment that tells what you should be doing with your life based on your personality. High Point’s ELI Assessment is far from that. By measuring your perception of yourself, others, and the world, the assessment will allow you to see first hand what your perception of the world is and what type of energy you are putting out there to be received. The ELI Assessment is your starting point for your coaching. When I took my ELI I was shocked at the results and I found it to be very eye opening.
After my ELI and my debriefing of my results, Bill and I met confidentially once a week for 45 minutes. Of course, I could talk to a good friend, my husband, a parent, the list goes on and on. Bill offered a middle ground among these individuals with his training and coaching expertise. He had a plan each week as to how we were going to tackle my inner demons, my “gremlins” as he called them. I led each session with whatever was on my mind that evening or left over from the week prior. We talked through that and step by step made a plan on how I was going to tackle these problems. He gave me assignments each week and a recap of our phone call, keeping me on my toes and always connected to my coaching sessions. Each coaching session is done over the phone, so no matter where you are located you can take advantage of this service!
So many of my friends are always saying things such as “I am going to start doing more for myself”. In my opinion, before you embark on any new adventure in your life, whether it be going back to school, changing your eating habits and exercising, a new job, even ending or starting a relationship — talk to Bill. That is how you will be able to start doing more for yourself.
Over the course of time I worked with Bill, it became very clear to me that any doubts that I had about myself were completely my own doing and weren’t based on very much. He really helped me to see my worth as a Person, Wife, Mother and even as a blogger! After each session, I felt rejuvenated and hopeful. Thanks to the time I spent with High Point Coaching and on myself, my home felt less conflicted and tense and that of course, made all the difference in the lives of everyone in my family.
By working with Bill, what I did was give myself the power to do anything I wanted. There was nothing in my way anymore because I took the control of my life back!
It was very obvious that Bill has a deep investment into his High Point Coaching clients. He truly cares and enjoys seeing positive results. One aspect of coaching that I would love to explore is Relationship Coaching where Bill works with pre-marriage/commitment couples and married/committed couples. His goal? For you to see your happily-ever-after. To help you see that happily-ever-after, Bill is providing a FREE Relationship Rescue workshop.
