I am passing along a blog post from Luke Iorio, President of iPEC Coaching, the school through which I was trained. I don’t yet know the proper protocol/ etiquette for reposting a blog so I sure hope this is OK! 🙂 I am subscribed to the iPEC blog, and I received this and thought – EXACTLY – so I thought I’d pass it along. Thanks Luke!

Wow, 2009 has been quite the year, huh? The economy, social, political, and business environments have been challenged in just about every way. And, in seeing all the uncertainty and challenges, I can’t help but think: FANTASTIC!
Is that what you would say? Perhaps I’d better explain. You see, as a certified professional coach, I getting excited because we’re finally asking real questions of ourselves and of our society. We’re looking deeper into who we are, rediscovering and re-aligning our values, and determining once again what we really stand for. And, at the same time, we’re becoming more aware of how closely connected and interdependent we are on each other – as local, national, and global communities. We live in exciting times, and when these types of challenges arise, new ideas are born, outdated habits are dropped, purpose is reignited, and the possibilities of what could be open up even further.
During this holiday season, take time to catch your breath, to see the possibilities that lie around you waiting to be noticed, and most of all to give thanks – for your family, friends, those that support you, and for these exciting times that open all of us up to change… change that will help us grow ever closer to our true potential.
Have a wonderful, safe, heart-warming, gratitude-filled holiday and a prosperous, healthy New Year.
D. Luke Iorio
