Hello wonderful Wisdo folks! I hope today’s session finds you healthy and well. I’m so honored to have you here. As those of you who have been here before know well, a lot of my coaching work centers around narrative. What stories are we living? What stories are we telling ourselves? Specifically for today: let’s look towards the future. This has been an incredibly hard year on all of us, but there will come a time when things are much easier. Change is inevitable, including positive change. So picture yourself on that day, when you look around and things have changed. When life feels less chaotic, and you’re striding towards your goals. What are you doing on that day? Where are you? Who are you with? What does the world around you look like, sound like? What is your “after” narrative?

Hello all! It’s such a joy to be here today, thank you for joining me. In uncertain times, I find that “going smaller” sometimes helps. Using small, short-term goals to keep me moving forward in my journey. This week I resolved to really pay attention to my sleep, and just work on each night as my daily goal. I’ve found myself happier and healthier already, and it’s such a small thing. What “micro goals” can you set for yourself this week?

Hello, it’s so good to be here today on this wonderful platform with you wonderful people. I hope this finds you happy and healthy! I’d like to start today with fortune telling. No, I won’t be telling yours, my crystal ball is in the shop. But so often when we try to tell OUR future we only do so with a negative bias. We only think “that could happen” when we think of negative outcomes. That’s natural, and in some cases healthy. What I want us to work on today is Balanced Fortunetelling. For every negative thing you think could happen, think of one positive thing… That. Could. ALSO. Happen.

I forgot alot about my trauma...details, people who were there, what lead up to it. I would like to remember more. Is that weird? I remember during flashbacks but they are gone shortly after.

Hello, it’s so good to see you on Wisdo! I hope you’ve all been having a good week, and have managed to enjoy a very different sort of summer. It’s the soon-to-be-passing of a season! I usually take moments like these with my clients to take a look at Big Goals to reach before the end of 2020. So let’s check in! What would you like to complete/take on/work on before the end of the year? We’ll be following a maxim of mine today: for every goal, make 4 steps. Dream. Say It Loud (or write it on Wisdo ;-). Plan, then: Do.

I hope this finds you well! Welcome and thanks for joining. A great place to start today is a wonderful 5-minute read: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelbarthur/2020/05/16/dont-let-the-virus-make-you-lose-your-story-so-says-eminent-career-scholar-mark-savickas/#2cbae61d49b1 The work I do with my practice centers around narrative…I don’t always use the “5 Questions” but they are a fun and helpful start. What were your answers?

Hello and thanks for joining! I hope this finds you well...Today we’re kicking off talking about Slippery Sustainability. We all have habits that help us- but we don’t do them enough! What are some things you want to do more of to help in your journey?

Hello and welcome, I hope this finds you well and healthy! It’s great to see you and be here on Wisdo. Today’s exercise is something I call Title Reduction. I’d like you to sit comfortably, breath gently, and say “I am” plus your “full title” to yourself. Go ahead and type it here, for example: “I am Michael Eldridge, writer/filmmaker/coach.” As you’re saying that sentence to yourself, think of all the stresses you are under. What’s bothering you now, or what are you worried about for the future? Let your eyes go “soft”. Don’t try to focus on anything, and just check back to these words when you need to. Now say to yourself: “I am…NAME” and let’s see how it feels to drop your title. Now as you breath gently, think of your childhood. Good, bad, doesn’t matter. Then: drop your name. Say to yourself simply: “I am.” How does that feel? Breath a few more breaths, saying “I am” to yourself on each one. How do you feel now?

Hello my friends, and thanks for joining me this week. Today’s session will focus on Stacking habits. We all want to move forward, but sometimes it can seem like we need to improve on SO many different things that it’s daunting. I teach my clients to “stack” habits…pick one new one a week, and try to slowly add to the stack of great habits. It all starts with one though: what’s what thing you’d like o do every day this week, consistently, to help you in your journey?

Hello my friends. Welcome to our session, thank you for being here, and I hope this finds you well. Today we’re trying something new! When you signed up for Wisdo, you did your “been theres” and “going through thats”. You also set goals for yourself. Take a moment before checking in and review your own profile, and your goals. How are you doing with your progress? And even more importantly, how can we work together to get you closer?
