Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 26 September 2019 is:

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” –Zig Ziglar

The ups and downs of stress can be confusing and challenging, especially when the downs turn into negative thinking. There is a difference between wallowing in negativity and diving deeper into it to face, acknowledge, accept, and letting go in order to move on to what comes next. Gratitude, creativity and consistency can be valuable tools to cope with stress. For example, consistency in routines that are simple enough to quickly complete, flexible enough to still accomplish even with delays, yet effective enough to capture motivation that engages you in the next action.

  • What tools have been effective in managing your stress?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 24 September 2019 is:

“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” –Socrates

Life comes in cycles, like having children, going to school, moving to a new country, or retirement. Finding a rhythm within each cycle can be challenging. Each cycle has things that just have to be done, and sometimes we lose ourselves in getting things done or doing things for others. Each cycle also gives us more skills and abilities to handle the new and unexpected surprises of change. You have your creative expression to love and connect with others. What happens when you shine the light of your creative expression inwards; can you also apply it and connect to yourself?

  • How do you use creativity to transform self-doubt into self-empowerment?
  • What unique structures can you create to help you live with more integrity – aligned with your values?
  • How do you stay flexible enough to harmonize intuition with logic in all your choices?
  • How do you keep your mind as open as possible and reach past your old boundaries?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 19 September 2019 is:

“Minds are like parachutes. They only function when open.” –Thomas Dewar

Being stuck is usually about repeatedly running a single story or the same version of a story over and over again. Perspectives are a powerful coaching tool used to break this repeating cycle. Knowing that this is helpful and doing it are two different things. Applying new perspectives can be more difficult, especially alone. These Coffeeshop Coaching groups amaze me with the unique perspectives that surface. Culture and language differences become a catalyst rather than a barrier for new, creative, and diverse perspectives!

  • How can I look at my situation in a new perspective; backward, upside-down, inside-out, and opening the parachute of my mind?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 17 September 2019 is:

“In our lives, change is unavoidable, loss is unavoidable. In the adaptability and ease with which we experience change lies our happiness and freedom.” –Buddha

Each Coffeeshop Coaching produces makeshift tools of adaptability. It is fascinating to witness people transform right before my eyes as they reconnect to their personal truth! Sometimes, merely shining the light of our awareness on the source of our resistance is all that is needed to dismantle its power.

  • What I know to be true right now is…?
  • One thing I can do right now is…?
  • How am I enough right now?
  • The most creative thing I can do right now is…?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 12 September 2019 is:

“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.” –Roy E. Disney

Learning to listen to what your emotions are telling you about your values can help you to find balance and integrity. Essentially emotions make up the language of your values through dissonance and resonance. Moments of empowerment, as well as anxiety and depression, are extremely helpful in displaying our core values if you know what to listen for. Today’s values finding exercise helps learn through action what values are and how to listen to their message. During your next emotionally charged situation, I invite you to breathe out your head and down into your heart to create a little more self-awareness.

  • Can you step back and distance yourself from the emotionally charged elements enough to observe the situation without judgment? What do you notice?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 10 September 2019 is:

“Creativity is intelligence having fun” –Albert Einstein

Curiosity can evoke creativity. Necessity and need can evoke creativity. It took creativity to survive our childhood and many other situations since then. Creativity was a significant element in today’s group coaching used by the entire group. I challenge you to notice how many different ways creativity shows up for you.

  • How many times can you recall using your creativity today?
  • How are you being creative right now?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 05 September 2019 is:

“In life, friendships change, divorces happen, people move on, others die. Money and jobs will come and go. Live long enough and your health and body will change. It goes with the territory of being human. The fact that you are still here gives you an advantage. Don’t look back. Look straight ahead! Decide to use all of your knowledge, skills, experiences and your life lessons from your mistakes, defeats and setbacks, to start over again. Life changes. You may not have the same life as before, but you can still enjoy your life!” –Les Brown

Change is inevitable. No matter what you do or where you are, you are changing. What matters is how you address the change processes; from a place of love or fear. Fear and love are two completely different perspectives of any given situation.

  • What is straight ahead of you right now?
  • From a place of fear compared to love, how does it look?
  • If you could imagine resources beyond your current thinking, what would they be?
  • Which strength can you draw on right now?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 03 September 2019 is:

“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.” –Mary Dunbar

Self-awareness, in any given moment, enables a person to be fully present and expand the experience. It opens opportunities, resources, space for more information. Try breathing out of your head down into your heart; even breathing down into the creative area of your hips.

  • What other perspective is possible?
  • What does your heart want?
  • What do you know to be true right now?

Now, take your next action!

Life is meant for awesome adventures, good friends, great coaches, and LOTS of coffee! – Melody Taylor-Fliege

Coffeeshop coaching is confidential, while using a more relaxed and informal platform that being lost in a crowded room can provide. We meet over a cup of coffee or tea, and although this isn’t corporate coaching, don’t be fooled into believing that the depth and amount of change to be achieved is any less. This style of coaching is just as committed as any other form of coaching just experienced in a more gentle and relaxed way of coaching support, encouragement and none-judgmental accountability.
