Well-being: Dream or reality?
There is not one single definition of well-being as it often has different meanings for different people. But we shall consider, as a common ground for our coaching sessions, that there are four universal elements, which differentiate those with a successful life from those in sorrow. These four categories, which form the basis of how we experience life, should be considered as generic. It could prove challenging to come up with a comprehensive list of what’s important to live a harmonious life since this is unique to each individual, as already mentioned above.
1. Emotional well-being
The first element is about what gives you energy to keep going day after day: your “emotional well-being”. Your emotions can build your resilience, while they can also take away your power by making you tense. They can increase your awareness and let you clearly see the options to solve problems positively, or they can distort your perception of reality and prevent you from looking rationally at situations. Our coaching sessions are aimed at helping you change your mindset so as to transform your emotional response. The idea here is to assist you in mastering the power derived from your emotions, so that you can use this energy deliberately for your own good, and for the sake of all your dear ones.
2. Mental well-being
3. Physical well-being
The third aspect is about setting the scene for the optimal functioning of your body: your “physical well-being”. The different forms of well-being that we are referring to are mostly interlinked and, as such, cannot be taken separately. For instance, if you are supressing “troublesome” emotions like anger, resentment or fear, you are blocking this negative energy somewhere in your body. We know how disastrous this can prove in the long run. These carefully hidden negative emotions are still present and will eventually show up later under the form of serious illnesses (cancer, heart related conditions, depression, etc.). I am offering you an opportunity to experience this energy, without blame or judgement, taking into consideration that it’s quite natural to have negative emotions, since they form part of the human vehicle; and consciously choose how to deal with them.
4. Financial well-being
About the coach
My perspective is built on a more positive view of human nature. I see individuals as driven to reach their potential. There is nothing wrong with wanting to fix one’s weaknesses, and in fact it should be the ultimate goal of our lives. But I believe that this is not where personal development should start.
