For many people, 2020 tested their belief, their faith, and their daily walk with God.

Have you noticed? It always seems that we look for answers or support whenever there’s a major upheaval in our lives . . . and, so far, this year has brought plenty of turmoil.

As part of my continuing series, all month long I’ve been introducing you to a series of self-assessments that Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—The OolaGuys—use in the popular 10-week coaching program we conduct together. Now I’d like to share another one with you about your faith.

“Faith” is one of The 7 F’s of Oola—those major life areas that all our problems, happiness, improvement and challenges seem to fall into.

Is your faith strong? Or could it be stronger?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your faith? If you answer “1,” that means low/bad/least true, while answering “10” means “high/good/most true”:

• I would rate my faith ____

• I feel connected to a higher purpose ____

• I am plugged into a faith community and continue to learn/grow ____

• I spend at least 20 minutes a day in meditation and/or prayer ____

• My beliefs and the way I live my life are congruent ____

• I use my faith to help resolve conflict and issues in my life ____

• I reflect on my faith often throughout the day ____

• I forgive easily ____

• I rely on my faith to guide my choices and my decisions ____

• I feel comfortable sharing and teaching my faith to others ____

While The OolaGuys don’t tell you what to believe or which religion to follow (and neither do I), we DO know that having a strong faith is a critical part of a balanced and happy life.

If your life could be better in every area—fitness, finance, family, field, faith, friends and fun—I’d like to invite you to have a chat about the 10-week Oola Coaching Program. Message me and we can jump on a 30-minute call to discuss it.

It only takes 10 weeks to make massive progress. Let’s work together to make that happen.

Are you happy, growing and balanced in your career?

This past year has been a wake-up call for many people—and not always in a bad way.

For instance, if you were isolated at home for 8 weeks, perhaps you discovered how much you love the calm environment, slower pace, and being at home with your kids full-time. If you were furloughed or laid off, maybe that gave you pause to think about what you really want.

Whatever your wake-up call was this past year, why not commit to making 2021 better than ever?I

I’ve mentioned The OolaGuys before. Their book and coaching program, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World, teaches a simple formula for creating a life that’s balanced, happy and growing.

This month, I’ve been sharing a series of quizzes that Oola uses to pinpoint where you are and what you need to work on. Today, that assessment focuses on your Field—one of The 7 F’s of Oola.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your career (field)? If you answer “1,” that means low/bad/least true, while answering “10” means “high/good/most true”:

• I would rate my overall job satisfaction ____

• My job financially meets my needs ____

• I love my job ____

• I feel as if I am doing what I was created to do ____

• I have solid goals for myself in this field ____

• My current job doesn’t interfere with my family and personal time ____

• My job makes the world a better place ____

• My job utilizes my natural gifts and abilities ____

• My current job can support my long-term financial goals ____

• My job offers the opportunity to grow personally, professionally and financially ____

How does your scorecard look? If you want to improve it, I’m here to help. Together, we can make sure you’re focused on getting what you want and on pursuing new opportunities with confidence. In fact, you can make massive progress in just 10 weeks with the Oola Coaching Program—delivered jointly by The OolaGuys and me.

Can I ask you a tough question?

You CAN eliminate the stress, create better boundaries, and bring more balance to your family life.

But first, let’s figure out where you are. It’s the first step to creating a plan for improving your future.

When I first read the book Oola: Finding Balance in an Unbalanced World, its authors—Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—recommended strategies for improving family life. “Family” is one of The 7 F’s of Oola: a proven formula for living a life of less stress, more balance and greater purpose.

As a Certified Oola Life Coach, I help clients not only create goals across all 7 areas of life, but also prioritize their tasks and—most importantly—stay accountable to accomplishing them week by week. In fact, I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to bring my followers the Oola formula via a 10-week coaching experience designed to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more.
