Brief introduction of Life Coaching

JOURNEY TO SELF

Journey to Self will grab you right from the beginning and pull you through a cascade of experiences—whether clinging to the rails of a sailboat in a violent storm, handling conflict between team members on the side of a 14,429 ft. peak, collapsing at mile-20 of a marathon, or sitting at the bedside of a dying parent.

In this inspirational collection of stories, Geese takes you with him on a journey through experiences that touched, challenged, scared, comforted, and changed him forever. Whether you are looking for greater motivation, thinking about writing your own story or searching for greater meaning in your life, you’ll find it here. This book will make you laugh, cry, reflect, and in the end, will inspire change.

A Silent Cry

I arrived home that evening around 7:30 p.m. I had just come from a two-and-a-half-hour meeting at the college and was really exhausted. The only thing on my mind was to hit the sack and sleep forever and ever, or in this case, until my obnoxious alarm wakes me up in...
