on subtle clues from me to verbalize a suggestion or
idea. It was uncanny how many times he was right on
the mark. I really liked Phil's special talent to
capitalize on intuition."

challenges of change into an authentic and empowered
|Be The Hero Of Your Life|
| ||Isn't it interesting how mythic movies such as Star
Wars and Lord Of the Rings can move us deeply as we
see characters face great challenges, uncover hidden
strenghths and live heroic lives. What if everytime
you faced a challenge and moved through your doubts
or fears to accomplish something important to you,
you saw yourself as a hero. How could this shift in
perspective help you to see your everyday struggles or
frustrations in a new light that inspires you?|
The hero's journey is not just in movies and books but
is also alive within you just waiting for you to discover
it. When you can tap into your own hero's story, you
can then see all the things that happen to you as
lessons to be learned, wisdom to be attained and
hidden strengths to be revealed.
By seeing yourself as heroic you can start to transcend
the mundane into something more important and vital,
and this will keep you going even when you feel like
giving up. This is because from the hero's eye your
vision always remains in sight and the small stuff does
not get to you as easily.
|Coaching The Heroic Life|
| ||When my clients come to me for coaching, many are
in a time of transition and uncertain about their
direction. They do know they want to make a change
and are willing to open the door to what's next.|
The coaching process gives them the clarity,
confidence and the tools to uncover what will be the
most fulfilling utilization of their unique strengths and
talents. I view them as nothing less than heroes and I
am honored to be a partner with them as they
undertake the journey.
If you are ready for your own heroic journey, please
contact me to schedule a 30 minute complimentary
coaching session. To schedule your session, please
send your e mail to email@example.com
or call 919-621-1578.
|Original Song To Inspire-Everlasting|
| ||Some of you may know that one of my passions is
music. I play piano and compose music. I would describe
my style as a blend of jazz, new age and pop.
Recently I wrote a song that I'd like to put out there.
I believe it has an uplifting message about love and
moving forward towards a positive vision. Below
is a portion of the lyric. The song with piano,
congas,bass,vibes and acoustic guitar with my vocal is
linked below. Enjoy.|
From "Everlasting" by Phil Okrend ©2006
Say You Think We Can Be Everlasting,
Say You Think We Can Find New Tomorrows,
Say Goodbye To The Pain And The Sorrow
You and I Have Nothing To Lose,
Turn The Corner,
Then The Sun Shines,
Through These Sleeping Eyes
Then We're On The Way,
To A World Of Brighter Better Days
