Definition of Success – Personal Empowerment Through Life Success Coaching

What is Your Definition of Success?
Life Success Coach – Lynette Chartier

I want to take a few minutes and chat with you about success. No matter which book store you are in , which newspaper you read, there are all kinds of stories about success.

The media often has us believe that there is only one definition of success and that success is all about the material goods – the big cars, the big house etc. However, I have often found that folks achieve material success, but that their success is not necessarily bringing them the internal happiness and fulfillment, that feeling of being on purpose that they are seeking.

Do not get many wrong the material goods are certainly a part of being successful, but it is part of an overall definition.

This past week, I read an article on Keith Ledger as the movie The Dark Night is now playing in theatres. Though this young man has passed away the question in the paper was whether this young man had lived a successful life, because he had lived a fast life and a short life – that his story was actually cut short.

I believe success is different for everyone and only you can identify what that is for you. If you are living on purpose, doing something that brings you joy; if you are doing something that makes you feel fulfilled and satisfied, then to me you are in fact living a successful life.

As you go about your daily routine if you are wanting to bring change in order to achieve more success the first important thing is to determine what it is you do want as an end result . What makes your heart sing? What gives you that get up and go energy? If you had no concerns in regards to money and time what is the one thing that you would want to do on a daily basis because it is what drives you and gets you passionate.?

Once you discover what that is, and are actually willing to admit that to yourself, know that you can in fact create your life by design, and that you do have the characteristics for the making of a successful man or woman. Perhaps the characteristics have laid dormant for a while but you can revive them. You can hone sharpen your skills.

You have everything in you to live a life of purpose, a life that will bring you satisfaction and fulfillment, and that will bring you your successful life.

Till next time, take a few moments to get clear on what you want and what is important to you. Know that there is no wrong definition of success. Success is what matters to you.

why do entrepreneur students need coaching or mentoring in business plans?

This is about business coaching and mentoring (In campus/college setting)
This is about business coaching and mentoring (In campus/college setting)

(tangeri has the best answer so far)

The key word to focus on here is "student" which implies they are learning and therefore not having a lot of experience, therefore, coaching or mentoring is apropos.

Gift Items You Must Never Give To Your Significant Other – You Shouldn’t Embarrass Yourself

Both males and females are really different in several aspects: the way of thinking, their needs, expectations.

For instance, gifts mean a whole lot to women, but we can’t say the same thing about men. A woman knows exactly how to ”read” the message that a gift is sending, but men do not pay too much attention to a gift.

So, deciding on the right gift for a woman might be rather difficult. The right gift tells her you are thoughtful, observant and you genuinely understand her. The wrong one can tell her exactly the opposite.

Any gift which says you love her, you cherish her, and understand her is fairly safe. What happens if your gift doesn’t transmit your real feelings for her?

A gift is worth much more than a thousand words for a woman. Not many of us men really know what a bad gift for a woman is. In order to not surprise her with a bad gift, here are a few you need to steer clear of:

Insult gifts:

-Awful flowers – for women, flowers have a big significance and that’s why you’ve got to recognize the distinction between great flowers and bad ones.

If you don’t know anything about flowers, you might ask a female florist to help you pick the right bouquet for your girlfriend. You do not want to go there with a few flowers you may give to her grandmother.

-Cheap perfume – it doesn’t matter how fancy it looks, you can’t fool her. Women typically know many things about the beauty products, perfumes, and which the best are.

-Lingerie – is really a risky bet. Lingerie made of flannel will be definitely not on her taste. You have to select the correct size and the proper style for her.

You have to select something that she wants and not what you’d like her to wear. If you didn’t pick the right size, the message she will understand is that she is too fat, or that you are insinuating she really needs a breast enlargements.  Forget it.

Totally NO gifts:

-A pet – not everybody is glad to get a pet as gift, simply because raising a pet involves a whole lot of responsibility and a great deal of work. If she said that she loves dogs, that doesn’t mean that she wants one. If she decides to purchase a pet, let her pick one and buy it herself.

-A present for yourself – like a golf set or even a playstation. It’ll be a selfish act. A gift must be focused on what she would like and not what you would like. Do not assume that you have the exact same interest. Even if she stays and watches basketball games with you, does not mean that she wants to own soccer ball.


-Don’t believe when her when she says that she doesn’t need anything mainly because this is not true. She said this, but she’s expecting to receive something from you. If you do not give her a gift, chances are you’ll see disappointment on her face.

I wish you good luck in picking the correct gift for your girlfriend. Bear in mind that you might have to give her something that makes her feel special and loved.

Be thoughtful about it. When you’ve run out of options, get advice from ross Jeffries or try looking into the double your dating review and mystery method. A lot of internet dating websites have loads of suggestions on what ladies appreciate.

Thinking About Getting a Dog? Read This First


If you are considering adding a dog to your household, you should stop and consider the long term expenses involved. Don’t misunderstand me, I think a dog is a great addition to a family, but it should not be an impulsive decision. Even if you choose to adopt a puppy or a dog from a shelter or rescue, there will be costs, both at the start and throughout the life of your new furry friend. Long term costs will vary depending on the size and type of dog you choose.


A pet store is not a good place to buy a puppy because many of these pups come from puppy mills and may have serious health or behavior problems. Adopting a dog or puppy from a shelter or a rescue can cost between $100 and $250. This usually includes shots and spaying or neutering. A small dog will obviously need a small crate and it is cheaper to feed a small dog. Other initial expenses include, bowls, leash, collar, tags, license and toys. This can range in costs from $35 to $50. For a small dog, routine veterinary care, flea and tick control, and heartworm medicine can cost as much as $300 to $500 a year. Training and boarding will be additional costs and certain breeds of small dogs require regular professional grooming.


For a medium to large size dog, 50 pounds and over, it can cost as much as $500 a year for a high quality kibble. Most of the other required expenses are higher for bigger dogs, including a bigger crate, bigger collar, bigger dog bed, higher dose of flea/tick and heartworm medicine…you get the idea.


If you choose to buy a puppy from a breeder, you will spend anywhere from $800 to $2000 depending on the breed, with the average cost being around $1200. This may sound like a lot of money to spend on a dog but there are advantages to buying from a reputable breeder. You will be guaranteed a physically sound, healthy pup with a stable temperament. You will likely be able to see the pups parents and see a record of the pedigree. If you want to buy a pure breed dog, make sure to do your research. There are many things to consider before you decide if a certain dog is right for you or your family. There are shelters and rescues full of pure breed dogs because the owners didn’t do their homework.


If you and your family decide to make the commitment, you will be happy to do whatever is needed to keep you new family member happy and healthy. Owning a dog or dogs is so rewarding and such a positive, beneficial experience it is worth the price, no matter the actual dollar amount. You will be paid back in unconditional love, devotion and fun for many years. You will have a best friend and protector for your children and you will have a furry family member that will lift your spirits, no matter how down you may feel.

Life Coaching – An Introduction To The Revolution In Personal Improvement

Life Coaching is something that is growing in popularity. People are looking for ways to accomplish their goals in self improvement. This article discusses the role of a life coach. There are also additional articles at the bottom of this post.

Life coaching arrived in the UK around 10 years ago, having started in the United States some 10 years earlier. The idea of life coaching is to define goals and work out how you can achieve them. Whereas therapy analyses the past, with life coaching the emphasis is on the future and how the client can fulfil their potential.

A life coach will not judge their clients but work with them on issues causing difficulties in their life. They will help the client understand problems, see what may be holding them back, work out solutions, set goals and concentrate on ways to change for the better. Life coaching will usually involve a series of regular sessions over several months and contact with your coach can be by telephone, email or personal visit.

Life coaches will have different styles and use a variety of methods in their work, depending on the needs of their client. Many will use experience gained in disciplines such as sociology, psychology, career or other forms of counselling. However, life coaching is not intended for those with psychological illness.

Individual clients come from all sorts of backgrounds and maybe looking for anything from major life changes to a few small adjustments to put them back on track. Although clients are often individuals, many companies also use life coaches to work with their employees in house. Improving motivation, developing leadership and teambuilding skills, or managing working relationships could be some of the areas covered.

How can life coaching help me?

If you are at a transition point in your personal or professional life then coaching can give you the confidence to set priorities, take decisions and make changes which will ultimately help you achieve a happier life. It is all about taking charge of your life and getting the results you want, rather than drifting and allowing things to happen around you.

In your working life perhaps you would like to improve your career opportunities, achieve more or develop your skills, but you are not sure how. Alternatively perhaps you would like to become self-employed, or simply need a change. A new challenge can give you a sense of purpose but you may lack the confidence to proceed. Life coaching will help you understand and accept your weaknesses, but also enable you to believe in yourself and make the most of your strengths and abilities.

In your personal life you may feel you need or want to change your lifestyle. Perhaps you would like to lose weight, improve your health and fitness, manage stress or gain a better work/life balance. While you may well know what you should be doing, actually keeping up lifestyle changes is difficult at times. Coaching can help you identify exactly why you want to change, why earlier attempts may have faltered, and to view the process in a more positive way. Crucially the targets you set will be realistic so that your motivation and the benefits of change can be maintained.

Good relationships with those around you are very important to your sense of well being and satisfaction with life, but relationships can be difficult both at home and at work. However, this can improve with the help of coaching sessions. Talking through the issues will enable you to see how you can change to help resolve problems.

How can I find a life coach?

There is no professional body or any regulation in the Life Coaching industry. In theory anyone can set themselves up as a life coach with no formal training or experience. There are training courses available but no recognised qualifications. Therefore your own research and instinct will be the most important factors when looking for a life coach. The media, particularly the internet, and personal recommendation are likely to be your best sources of information.

Your choice of life coach will partly depend on your purpose. If you are looking for assistance with a particular area of your life, then you will want to research the experience and skill available in that area. For example, some coaches may be more effective working on family issues than changes at work. However, you may feel that personality and how the coach clicks with you are more important than any particular background. The way the coach asks questions, delivers constructive criticism and motivates their client is of course going to be vital to the success of the sessions. Also remember to consider whether you would like the option of face to face contact with your coach.

A good life coach will not ask for a large payment upfront. After the initial introductory conversation you should be allowed time so that you can be reasonably sure you have made the right choice. This works both ways as the coach will also want to be sure you will have a successful working partnership.

Can I become a life coach?

As a life coach you will need excellent communication and listening skills, a positive approach and the ability to encourage and motivate others. You must obviously enjoy working closely with people and also be flexible. More specific skills may be required if you choose to work in a particular area of life coaching.

Although there are currently no qualification requirements, you may well choose to undertake some form of training course before you start to practice life coaching. Training will develop your skills and is likely to give you more confidence and credibility. As there are no academic standards you will have to rely on your own research and evaluation to find an appropriate course. Your choice will depend on previous experience, and personal interest. Remember to ask about the cost of the course, time involved, support available and recommendations from previous students.

What Is Life Coaching?

This is a post in answer to a question regarding Life Coaching. There are additional resources at the end of this post.

Applied Creative Evolution Life Coaching


there is a yoga place that i saw that does life coaching ? what is that?
is it like counseling then? and is it covered by ohip or whatever?

Life coaching is different from counseling in that your life coach will be more directive and offer specific advice. Life coaching is about improving your life going forward and does not usually focus on past emotional issues.

Counselors have to go through more training and certification to become licensed than a life coach so you have to be careful when selecting a life coach. Most life coaches offer a free session over the phone for you to see if life coaching is right for you.
