Joylyn changed my life. There is no other way to say that. While I’ve always had great confidence in my professional life and abilities, my personal life was a different story, one where I had no true identity, little confidence, was afraid to try anything new, and even more afraid to do it on my own. I watched for years as opportunities past me by, always telling myself I couldn’t do it or quitting shortly after I started, and then trying to tell myself it was ok that I missed another opportunity. One such opportunity for me was to start running and complete an endurance/obstacle race as final confirmation that I had beat smoking for good.After passing it up time after time, I started my work with Joylyn. As my life coach, she helped me recognize the infinite potential that I had, and the things that I was doing that were holding me back. She taught me skills to help me succeed, helped me realize that failure wasn’t final, and worked with me to build the confidence to push forward toward the things I wanted. Through my work with Joylyn, I not only gained the identity I’d always been looking for outside of my work, but I also gained the courage to go for the things I wanted, even when I had to do it alone. Last week, after overcoming an injury, I ran the endurance/obstacle race, and I did it alone. I loved every second of it, and I’ve already registered for another race. Having Joylyn as my life coach undoubtedly helped me get to this place, and I can’t thank her enough. I’m so excited to see what else is possible!
I have worked with Dr. Joylyn, both remotely and face-to-face, for a number of years, mostly for nutritional counseling and naturopathic consultation. While I was open to the idea of life coaching, I shied away thinking it wasn’t for me. I’m just someone trying to strike a work-life balance and get the bills paid. But in sessions where I would vent my frustrations about my workplace environment—the power plays, the drama, what passes for acceptable work, my boredom—she helped me see that a lot of my frustration comes from my hiding my superhero-ness. I had more choice (and, thus, more power) than I gave myself credit for. I was limiting myself to what I knew rather than using the tools I had to open up new possibilities, opportunities to tap into the infiniteness of the Universe—me! She uses the same approach that she teaches—acknowledging interesting points of view and asking questions to illuminate paths and perspectives I had not yet considered in a non-judgmental way. I have to be honest, I’m still not sure I’m a superhero, but I am sure that I am bigger and capable of more than the little box I was putting myself into…and I feel more powerful and in control of my life!
You are magic! My finical life has changed since you ran my Bars!...
