Living a good life,

Yet time is always running out, leaving you stressed and out of balance

 

“Today I started with the Embrace Life programme of Amaze Yourself. Made myself a cup of cappuccino with some chocolate. Everything comes together already. I’m impressed with the quality of the programme. I full heartedly recommend it!”

Recognise this?

  • You’re living a good life with a loving partner and great friends.. However, there never seem to be enough hours in a day, let alone time to do the things you truly love or a moment to be on your own.

  • You were aiming to go to the gym, yet before you knew it your diary was fully booked again, leaving you no other choice than to work late and forget the gym all together.

  • You feel as if you are continuously running around, rushing from one meeting to the next. Making you feel as if you’re participating in a rat race. It never seems to stop and sometimes you wonder whether you’re even heading in the right direction.

The solution:

  • Focus on what YOU really want in life allowing you to enjoy more. 

  • You determine what it is you’re dreaming of.

  • You move forward purposely towards your newly defined goals, resulting in more energy.

  • You get ahead in your job/own company and feel good and fit again.

  • You will experience balance and enjoy yourself more.

Embrace Life!

Who am I?

I love going out with friends. Spending time with my love and cheeky monkey, who has just turned six. I also like running (or rather the feeling afterwards). I have a full-time job, a loving family and an unstoppable desire to discover new restaurants and other countries. These days my life feels in balance, which has not always been the case.

Balance has always been an issue for me. Or better said a lack of balance. I love life and I love to live life to the fullest. I got a burnout as a result, which made me stop altogether. I did not like it, thought it was boring doing next to nothing. Until I discovered it could be done differently as well, by only saying YES to the right things. By focusing on what I really wanted so that I could embrace life.

Now most days I am full of energy. Above all I thoroughly enjoy my life and I am aware of what works and doesn’t work for me. All tools and experiences that got me here have been summarised in a beautiful programme. Embrace Life is my personal motto and my programme for you.

 

In the Embrace Life training you will go through the following 6 modules:

module 1

What do you really want?

-Fly me to the moon-

Personal attention for you

I am longing to do this together with you! I think it is great that you have chosen to live the life you really want. I am so looking forward to helping you with that. I want to get to know you and assist you in dreaming, inventing and achieving in what you want. That is personal and that is why I only work with 1-to-1 coaching or in smaller groups. That is the reason why there are only limited spaces in the ‘Royal Treatment’ and ‘Fast Forward’ version. This enables me to truly help you.

 

Start date

The next ‘Embrace Life’ programme starts on Monday 20 November 2017. You’ll start with individual assignments and the first mutual kick-off is on 24 November. You can register until the 23rd November 2017. After your registration you will get access to the amazing Embrace Life academy, with the Embrace Life programme, where you will find short videos, your personal workbook and a lot of inspiration. Every two weeks you will receive a new module for you to start working on. Outside of the online academy, we will be in personal contact. I will help you to reach your goals by means of coaching.

“I highly recommend the personal coaching by Yvonne. She is capable of connecting your business (and personal ambitions) with personal development. Every day as an entrepreneur I am facing new challenges. It can be very helpful to have someone support you. The main advantages for me were: the personal contact, the flexibility to arrange the approach to my preference and the down-to-earth and practical approach. Yvonne is a lovely person: ambitious, business-focused in a healthy way and overall and foremost human, down-to-earth, honest, warm, and inspirational.”

Dutch Speaking Champion, Presenter- Chief of Speeches - Trainer Marije Wielenga

“Before I started this programme, I found it very difficult to make time to meditate. Even though I knew that meditation would help me and was good for me, I just felt too busy and did not allow myself the time. The Embrace Life programme has taught me that it is possible to incorporate meditation in my life. Now every morning I meditate, for a short while, with the meditation from your programme. It really works! I feel a lot calmer and I can handle the stress better. I am really happy with it!”

FAQ:

I really would like to join, but I am not sure whether I have the time available?

You will get out of the course what you put in. As such the more time and energy you invest, the better your results. Would you not be able to invest 1.5 to 2 hours on average per week (the equivalent of watching a movie on television), perhaps it is better to postpone your participation till the next round.

The training and coaching are online, how do I know whether this suits me?

The advantage of the web-based academy is that you’re able to work on the training whenever and wherever you want. This is multiplied by the effect of online coaching: you’re avoiding travel time, no more parking or public transport problems and we can meet wherever you want. It is ideal for people with a busy and full live.

During the intake conversation you can determine whether online coaching is also for you.

I am in doubt whether I should join or not?

Call me so we can determine your feasibility factor. I will not try to persuade you to join, as I only want to work with people who are motived and full of enthusiasm!

It is not that easy to change my life

I understand. That is why you are in control. I will provide you with the information and exercises but you will determine which steps and actions are suitable for you. This allows you to ensure the steps are doable and once these have been incorporated in your life, you can move on to the next. Furthermore you can choose for intensive coaching within the Royal Treatment version allowing me to support you even better in reaching your goal.

Can we discuss which version suits my situation best?

Yes please! I look forward to discussing this with you. Contact me so we can go over this together.

I’ve already booked a holiday in this period?

You and I plan our meetings together, taking into account holidays and leaves of absence. Should you choose the Fast Forward version then we will investigate the possibilities within your group.

I think it sounds great but I am thinking more of a different approach towards personal coaching. Would that be possible as well?

I would love to hear what’s on your mind, contact me so we can go over this together.

“I especially liked your time-management tool. This tool from the programme has given me more self-confidence, which has made it easier for me to make decisions. It has helped me, and still helps me to define my goals. I am tranquil and more focussed enabling me to get loads more done. When I actually don’t want to do something, I have learned to say No!”

“By following your Embrace Life programme I have embarked on a journey allowing me to overcome barriers which used to be in my way. Your programme has helped me to see that I am ready for the next step. I have reached that point to take that step. Finally! I am so excited! The beauty of it is that through your programme I have already been able to move in the right direction.”

"You being amazing! That is what makes Amaze Yourself!"
