Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

I can’t tell you how delighted I was to be featured on MMS’s Monthly Newsletter in August. I’m finally coming up for air after a busy last year and can share it with you. I hope you enjoy this. Dr. Cherie is The Mother Of Life Coaching and My mentor in Life Coaching. Hope you enjoy the newsletter and it inspires you to continue to grow and go for what it is you want in our ever changing world.

Life continues to unfold gifts if we listen to our heart and messages as they show up. The key is to act on them and fan their success. You don’t have to know all of the answers. You just have to show up and get out of your own way so the universe can guide you and chart a course for your success.

DEFINING MOMENTS AUGUST 2022 EDITION “Each person has their individual purpose and distinct path”

Words from Dr. Chérie Each person has his or her individual purpose and distinct path, unique and separate from anyone else. As you travel on your life path, you will be presented with numerous lessons that you will need to learn in order to fulfill that purpose. The lessons that are presented to you are designed specifically for you. Learning these lessons is the key to discovering and fulfilling the purpose and relevance of your life.You will be presented with lessons in every situation in your life. When you experience pain, you have the opportunity to learn a lesson. When you feel joy, you can learn a different lesson. For every action or event, there is an accompanying lesson that you have the option to learn. There really is no way to avoid the lessons you are presented, since they will keep repeating until you learn them. You can’t copy anyone else’s answers, and you can’t fake it. Your lessons are like gravity. They must be learned ,fully and completely in order for you to attain life mastery and fulfill your purpose. You have a purpose for being here on Earth. Whether you are aware of it or not, you definitely have a life purpose. Whether you have discovered your life purpose or not, you still have a destiny to fulfill. Messages are provided to you to help guide you on your path. These messages are presented to you from a variety of sources to illuminate your way, especially when the path becomes difficult to see. As you travel through your lifetime, you will encounter challenging lessons that others are spared, while others will spend years struggling with challenges that are not part of your curriculum. You may never know why you are blessed with financial abundance when others struggle with continuous scarcity. You may look enviously at a truly happy marriage wondering, “Where is my soul mate?” One person wrestles with her weight while another struggles with dyslexia. One has severe physical challenges while another battles with trying to secure employment. Each person has their own individual curriculum, and the lessons of others often can appear enviable.The one thing you can count on for certain is that you will be presented with all the lessons that you specifically need to learn to fulfill your destiny. Whether you choose to learn them or not is entirely up to you.Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott & Michael Pomije, MCC ICF

From Fitness Coach to Poet…Cindy Georgakas has Multiple Capabilities!

I can’t tell you how delighted I am to share my journey with you as a Health and Wellness Coach, and now poetess/writer.A native of California, I grew up just outside San Francisco, in Daly City, California. Most days, I couldn’t see 3 feet in front of me because the fog was so thick, literally. . While I had direction In my life, and came from a loving middle class family with good friends and hobbies, most days I was in a virtual fog and couldn’t see the forest through the woods on many levels physically and emotionally. My brother was diagnosed at a young age with schizophrenia, my father and mother divorced when I was 13 which was painful and confusing so I took on the role of “fixer” and had a bravado in the family to keep the peace.  Underlying and unconsciously, I was hoping if I could help them heal themselves, then I would be ok. While I was popular growing up, a pom pom girl, Miss Daly City, a Job’s Daughter,  a Recreational Therapist, dating my high school sweetheart (who is now my husband), and managing a successful Gym in San Francisco, I had the same struggles many of us had growing up, not feeling comfortable in my own skin In 1979,  I took Dr. Chérie Carter Scott’s MMS Coach Training and It was an “Aha moment” where a light bulb went on that illuminated my soul, becoming aware and mindful. The fog figuratively and literally lifted when I moved to warmer weather 30 minutes south.. To witness Dr. Chérie working with people in one-on-one sessions and groups was like watching a symphony conductor lead the orchestra into musical bliss.

Continue reading below if you are looking to expand you career, want to discover new insights or expand your awareness in living life to the fullest. Dr. Cherie is a master and a published author of 18 books, leads workshops worldwide and an entrusted friend, I am blessed to have in my life.

Have a blessed week and continue using set backs as opportunities to grow from and learn the lessons needed to transform obstacles into opportunities.

Thank you Jake!
If you can think it, you can say it. If you can say it, you can do it! After taking the Dutch Level 1 Coach Training in spring 2021, it is only a month ago that I earned my ACC. Having worked in corporate communications for the design, tech and lifestyle space more than 15years, the training truly initiated my next step in life and enabled its backbone: the professionalisation of my intuition.Working closely with Suzan Verzijden, PCC, from intake conversation to credentialing guidance,really showed me the value of teaming up with a true mentor. And, being half of our team, she proudly says: “From minute one I saw Andrea study and work in a very diligent and focused way without ever losing her humour. Her aim being becoming a high-quality coach and living the life of one as well. I am so proud to see she already achieved her ACC-certification,serving private as well as corporate clients in the process.”Can’t wait for more and let’s all work together like this, because if we can think it, we can do it, take care, Andrea, ACC.

You are multi-faceted and gifted Cindy and your formative years, hard as they were, no doubt help shape you to who you are today.I enjoyed reading this post on you and I admire you even more than I did before, knowing just that you were an excellent poet. You have been through a lot and yet have come out strong and talented with a compassionate heart…so able to lead others to find their own strength!! Bravo!
