What are you waiting for? Get a catalyst!

Recently I was working on re-designing my business cards. A lot has changed in the last year and I thought it was time to update my info. I was thinking about what I would like as my job title.  I wanted it to give enough information that people would get an idea about what I do. But, I also want to invite questions about what I do, open a conversation, and avoid any misconceptions or assumptions.

I was thinking about what I do and what I'd like people to know about work with me. I had lots of ideas and one word that I really liked as a job description was "catalyst." Though it didn't make it to print on this set of cards because I thought it might be a little confusing, it did accurately describe part of what I offer

In chemistry, a catalyst is defined as "a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction." How I interpret this is: the chemical reaction in question can happen without the catalyst. However, the catalyst decreases the amount of energy required to get the chemicals/reactants to react with each other so that the reaction happens much faster. (This is how enzymes in our body works. The chemical reactions could all happen without enzymes, but we'd be dead by the time it happened. Just food for thought.) 

How does this apply to my work?

I'm a life coach. I work with people to identify, confront, and conquer their limitations. I do this by explaining and re-framing a situation so that you can see it differently and take a different approach, and I teach you creative tools and techniques that I have learned through my training and along my journey to get past the obstacles that keep you from your greatness. You don't need a life coach. The lessons, issues, and struggles you are experiencing, you can and will conquer on your own. You have the ability to change, grow, and expand your life in this very moment. However, your willingness, energy level, and ability to see past your current struggles may not meet the demand of your current situation. It may take several repetitions, lifetimes even, of working with a certain issue before you are able to get beyond it. That's where I come in, the Catalyst. My training and tools, and especially my presence and commitment to contribute to expanding consciousness on this planet, contributes the energy you need to react, to go beyond, your limitation. 

Sometimes you need someone to encourage you, to remind you of your brilliance. Sometimes you need a new way of looking at a situation or yourself. Sometimes you need a witness. Sometimes you need energy release, be it a hike, bodywork, a hug, or a scream. Sometimes you need someone to hold you accountable and to be firm when you are spinning yourself into a tizzy. Sometimes you need help figuring out what you need. Though you have the capacity to do all of this for yourself, sometimes you aren't able to access it. That's what I do. I supply the energy required to obliterate the limitation in front of you and allow you to move beyond it. 

I know you don't need me. But your life could be so much easier and more fun if you didn't have to struggle with the same damn thing you've been struggling with for so long.

Are you ready to finally "get over it"?

Did I mention another definition for catalyst is "a person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy causes others to be more friendly, enthusiastic, or energetic"? I'm that, too. This could be the most fun experiment you've ever done 😀.

I am here for you. The world needs your superpower!

Is now the time? For what reason would you wait?
