The Bigger Dreams Life Coaching Course is divided into three distinct sections: discovering your greatest dreams and desires, determing what is holding you back from reaching these dreams, and finally developing a plan of action to help you reach these dreams. The first several days will be spent on discovery.

 

The foundation of this course is built upon the exclusive CIRCLE OF LIFE diagram. The diagram divides your world into 14 separate categories by which you define your life. The diagram helps reveal your passions and priorities. It enables you to understand what is both least and most important to you, and helps you to determine which areas you want to develop and grow in next. When you comprehend the CIRCLE OF LIFE diagram it enables you to set clearly definable goals that you can achieve, one step at a time. Let's begin discovering your priorities.

Discover Your Passion and Dreams

1. In order to help us understand how happy or satisfied you are in every area of your life, we want you to give a 1 to 10 value for each catergory listed. 1 means you not satisfied at all (ie. needs great improvement) , whereas 10 means you are extremely satsified (ie. needs no improvement)  in this area of your life.

1. Dreams and Goals
