On Sunday, June 12, 2016, I officially became a Certified Professional Coach! To say I’m excited is an understatement. I’m over the moon excited! I’ve been working on this certification for the last year. There’s something to be said for finishing what you start.
A large part of becoming a coach was the decision to try. The inspiration came from my friend Anika. She kept saying “You’re really good at this. You should be getting paid.” I’d listen to her, but never felt inspired to do anything. Until one day I did…
On April 29, 2015, I called the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, iPEC for short. That started the journey to destiny. I believe you can learn from anyone and everything. So when Anika planted the seed, I had to at least till around to see what I could “learn” about coaching. I spoke to Mira at iPEC and I was instantly sold! I signed up the same day!
Since that time, I have asked myself “Was I chasing destiny?” When I look back, all of this really started May 6, 2013. This is the day I researched coach training programs. I want to be the best at whatever I do, so I looked for the "best" coach training school. I narrowed my choice down to two, stuck them in a folder and never looked at them again until almost two years later. This is when I got the call from Destiny.
She said “You’re not happy Latarsha. Something’s missing. I don’t have to tell you because you already know what it is. You’re not living to your full potential.”
I went back to that folder, looked at my top coach training programs again and the choice was clear. I signed up for the iPEC Coaching Program and now here I stand a Certified Professional Coach.
I believe my destiny was determined at birth. My path in life is to encourage, energize and inspire others to become better versions of themselves. Versions that they never even dreamed possible. Coaching is one way for me to do this.
To offer my brand of inspiration to others, I have to first be a source of inspiration to myself. The iPEC Coaching Program is helping me do just that. I'm excited about my life and what lies ahead!
My Uncle Gary says “It amazes me how you keep reaching new heights. Thing is, there is no telling how far you’ll end up.”
He’s right. This is only the beginning. I have no idea how far I’ll go, but I know it’s far. I don’t know how I’ll get there, but I know I will. I don’t have to have all of the answers. I just have to see the path and keep walking it until I reach THERE…Wherever and whatever THERE is.
So no, I was never chasing destiny. She had already found me, because she is me.
Be Y.O.U.! Breakthrough, Breakout and Become Your Best You!
