Advent coaching course
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour” Jesus Christ. Matthew 25:13
Hello and welcome. My name is Corey and I am the principal of life horizons coaching and I would like to invite you on an advent course leading up to the new horizon of what will be 2016.
I came across coaching and its benefits when I came to a point In my life when I realised I have squandered a lot of time. One thing I did that wasted a lot of time was to regret the past and worry that it would repeat itself in the future. That is how I lived my life a constant repeat of the past and trailers of future events being the same. The whole time, missing out on living in the now and what was possible. What changed for me? I met a good mentor who challenged me about this type of thinking and I was faced with the cost of thinking that way. It changed my life. I went from thinking of the past to what can I get out of the present, it was transformational for me.
This led me on a journey of discovery and understanding coaching principals and techniques to help people really get the most out of living. Because I believe life is a gift and we need to learn how to make the most of this gift. So I am passionate at pursuing abundance in life and helping others do the same.
This course will be based on the teaching of Jesus, after all advent is about preparing for his coming. One of Jesus’ many useful saying is:
“Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened with debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life” Luke 21. But how do we do this, perhaps this could be your focus for advent, to give up worrying too much.
Who is Jesus for you? What meaning do you give his life and his teaching? Have you thought of how it can apply to your life? This advent from 29th of November till the 24th of December could be the perfect time to reset your focus. It is a time of actively waiting, preparing our homes our families our relationships our hearts for what is most important, space for love, for God for other. It isn’t passive waiting at all.
Rather than just spend one day or an evening chatting with friends over drinks on New Year’s Day about what you plan to do different next year – start preparing now!! Just spend an hour each week leading up to Christmas and make a difference in your life. If you haven’t thought about Jesus even better, give the wisdom of Jesus a chance. After all he is the most influential person in history. He can influence your life for the better, I promise.
This journey is about asking the hard questions that lead to the blind spots in your life that need to be uncovered. Blind spots can run ruin in our lives without us knowing. This is a journey of being even more authentic about what you want and what is working and what is not working. This is a journey about being radically present to the now in your life and living it. This is a journey about living a virtuous life that is good for you and good for others and good for the greater good.
Jesus came into this world so that you can have life and have it in abundance. We are preparing for his coming during advent so that we can receive him fully and receive his gift of fullness of life. John the Baptist prepared the comin of Jesus in Jerusalem. We don’t have all of his teaching but the words we do have often relate to challenges to people who are being inauthentic with money and business and relationships. Think of how much fruit you can have by facing your areas of inauthenticity in your life.
Let’s begin this course by asking the hard question: where in your life do you lack abundance of life?
Relationship with you parents, work, relationships, play time, exercise, health. What will be your focus during this time.
