High Achievers Coaching


Are you facing impossible challenges in your life? Are your setbacks keeping you from who you believe you are destined to become? Do you find yourself stuck in the same rut you were in two or three years ago at the same time? Do you dream of breaking free and successfully making it to the next level? Do you feel you have a much grander calling on your life but are not sure what to do to make that happen?


One way to accelerate your breakthrough is by hiring a personal development coach. Someone who has broken free of similar types of setbacks that you want to free yourself from. A coach can be a great resource for helping you to achieve the impossible and conquer your barriers.


These are some of Rick's accomplishments and the setbacks he overcame. He will teach you the secrets for using obstacles to propel you forward for amazing breakthroughs like these.


* Rick had an agonizing fear of heights. Even driving over bridges created anxiety. He broke free of that fear and has since logged over 180 parachute jumps at 13,500 feet (2.5 miles up!). Now Rick loves the very thing that once generated such paralyzing fear.


* Rick was once failing his high school gym class. He never played any sports or athletics. He was clumsy and awkward. Later he had a big breakthrough and enlisted in the Marine Corps. While there, Rick was ranked as #12 among 80 other U.S. Marines in boot camp at Parris Island


* Rick fell on hard times and was homeless for several months. Eight years later, Rick had an incredible breakthrough and was earning over $100,000 per year working as the Manager of Technology Education at an international mutual funds firm


* Rick enrolled in public speaking classes several times. He was overwhelmed with fear and dropped out each time. Rick eventually had a dramatic breakthrough in his confidence speaking in front of an audience and became an award winning public speaker.


* In high school and college, Rick was always a mediocre student with B's and C's. Later he broke free of that rut and achieved straight A's with a 3.95 GPA while taking all of the pre-requisite courses to apply to nursing school. All done late in life at age 45.


* When Rick first enrolled in college, he failed his writing assessment exam at Temple University. He then had to enroll in a remedial writing course. He even failed that remedial writing course! He had a breakthrough in writing and has since written numerous articles, training manuals and books!


* In December 2006, Rick was diagnosed with Lupus by a leading rheumatologist at a nationally known hospital. They told him the disease was so advanced that he had about five years left and then his organs would shut down. Rick had a breakthrough with that. He went from dying of Lupus to thriving and running daily sprint biathlons of jogging and bicycling for 2 to 3 hours each and every day!


You can hire Rick as your personal one-on-one coach to assist you in accomplishing the impossible in your life and the lives of your loved ones.

In the world of professional athletics, one of the key elements for a high performance team is the selection of inspirational and charismatic coaches who can bring out the best in each player.

The same is true in life. You might be struggling with some new challenges where a coach can play a role in overcoming your setbacks with greater ease. You might be struggling in your business and a coach can assist you in improving your sales presentation and marketing strategies. You might be launching a new career and a coach can help you accelerate your growth and bridge the gap from point A to point B.

How can a personal coach benefit your personal development?

1. A personal coach can see us as we truly are right now, and look deeper to see our fullest potential down the road.

2. An insightful coach will be the bridge that gets a person from where they are now, to where they want to be.

3. A coach helps you to see what you do not see. To draw out, develop and reinforce your gifts and talents. Building upon your strengths.

4. A trusted coach will hold you accountable by having you report daily or weekly on your accomplishments and struggles.

5. An experienced coach is a sounding board where you can bounce ideas, thoughts, difficulties and setbacks.

6. A proficient coach will bring you new ideas and create an atmosphere that fosters your creativity.

7. A competent coach will help you to define your Vision and Mission based on your assets, skills, experiences and ambitions.

8. A successful coach will keep you motivated during tough times, helping you to pick yourself up and surge ahead successfully overcoming your obstacles.

A typical coaching relationship might start on a trial basis. You are under no contractual obligation and can quit at any time without any fuss. Billing is done on a minute-by-minute basis. Sometimes a client just needs 10 minutes prior to a big event they are facing, such as a speech or a presentation. For that 10 minute phone call they are only billed for 10 minutes. Others need 90 minutes and are billed for 90 minutes.

Some of the telephone coaching sessions Rick has conducted have included: becoming more confident in public speaking, getting others to give you respect on the job, building greater self-esteem, enhancing interpersonal relationships, writing your first book, strengthening your internet presence, marketing yourself with greater success.

Contact Rick to see if a personal coach is a good fit for your current needs. Let's see if Rick can help you reach those objectives in your life that you yearn for.
