Coaching and Success

A better life can come in four ways. 1) A medical doctor can operate. 2) A medical doctor can perscribe controlled substances. You can be coached by a professional like myself. You can learn on your own. Coaches lift you and and help you achieve. As your coach, I will also lead you toward actions tailored by and for you and your goals. This is your outcome that brings your success to reality. Success is different for different people. What is failure in someone else's view, may be success in yours.


Did you know that Rocky, Sylvester Stalone, had to sell his most love possession, his dog, for $400 just to survive while promoting Rocky? He certainly did not look successful on the outside, nor did he fully feel successful at that point of sale. His lost his dog!!! OMG. To some, this was a failure who was promoting a movie about a superstar boxer. Was it a joke of some kind? We know that just a few years later he was able to buy his beloved puppy back and enjoy great success. By the way, he paid $10,000 to get his dog back!. We are all different but one thing is certain, those who give all they have to experience who they are or can be, will never feel like a failure.


Your success can be a special relationships with a person or group, your physique or owning other things to bring feelings of pride. Success may be money to spend, share, invest, or give. Success can be a mindset of confidence and positive emotions as you take a seriously considered risk to be your true authentic self. 


The deep purpose of i4 Advantage and HERO XL coaching is to empower each person to be the executive in charge of their business area and life. Businesses generate revenue by serving human needs. Humans work in businesses. Our entire program has scientifically linked these and the end results that can be measured in terms of "more".


Through coaching, you transform confusion, fear chaos, troubled relationships, harmful conflicts, financial distress, disappointment with yourself, and fear of hopelessness or lack of meaning. All these can be transformed into a satisfying and meaningful life. Coaching allows you to identify your greatest strenghs and qualities in a way that that shines light into the dark areas of your dissappointment, pain or sadness. Your desire, passion, and strenght braid together to empower and guide your efforts to implement the strategies that you and your expert coach discuss.


My Coaching Method (RMT):

In addtion to my expertice in the HERO platform, I am a long time “Robbins-Madanes Training (RMT) Certification Student.”


Strategic Intervention (also known as SI) is a project dedicated to extracting the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, game theory, and others. The term “Strategic Intervention” was coined by Anthony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, and Mark Peysha to describe their change work. Mark Peysha has further developed Strategic Intervention as an interdisciplinary framework and movement.

Strategic Intervention exists wherever human beings use extraordinary skill to bring about positive personal and cultural change. Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi are examples of masterful Strategic Interventionists who transcend the particularities of religion, culture, institution, job description, or political philosophy (as a Strategic Interventionist should.)

What distinguishes SI from other strategic studies is the belief that certain holistic solutions “snap into place” when more people’s needs are met, expressed, and elevated. These solutions actually deliver more benefit for less effort.

Anthony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha and Magali Peysha are the founders of Strategic Intervention Coaching. They have been powerfully influenced by the great insights and works of Victor Frankl and Milton Erickson’s creative breakthroughs in human intervention.

Strategic Intervention is also grounded in the work of the Gregory Bateson group at the Mental Research Institute. In the late 1950’s originated the new paradigm of interactional and systemic studies, which became a watershed in the development of disciplines such as game theory, cybernetics, neurolinguistics, organizational psychology, management psychology, and dozens of other systemic disciplines.
