April O’Leary, Certified Life Coach, will be our speaker for the September 21st General Meeting of the Zonta Club of Bonita Springs. Her topic will be S.T.O.P. – 4 Letters That Can Change Your Life –a method for dealing with those situations when you feel angry and pushed to your limit. The meeting is held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Spanish Wells Golf & Country Club.
Wouldn’t it be nice to STOP and get off that emotional roller coaster? It can be done, says Ms. O’Leary. Reorienting ourselves to the value these challenges present and using them to benefit our own growth is what S.T.O.P. is all about. Learn how to effectively slow down, notice your trigger moments and then observe them before responding. This simple technique will help you see more deeply and create stronger relationships at home and at work. Beware, she says, it will also change you too.
A graduate of Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in Elementary and Middle School Education, Ms Leary started her path toward becoming a life coach after seeking counseling to deal with the pressures of being a stay at home Mom with three children under 5 and two cats and a puppy. She had to “rediscover who I was. I had to put myself back on the priority list.”
Certified as a Life Coach through the Life Coach Universe in Ft Myers, her message to her client is: “It’s not selfish to take care of you! Being able to eliminate the feelings of guilt associated with doing something for yourself and enjoy your life, simply because it is YOUR life. My goal is to help each and every woman see their true value, start taking care of themselves and then empowering them to help others to do the same. It is a magical and freeing process.”
