Advisor, Mentor, Coach

My name is Guy. A lot of people know me as Gino. In the financial services field for over 30 years, my life as a Stockbroker afforded me a life of comfort that, quite frankly, was not only financially rewarding but so enjoyable. “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day of your life” wrote Confucius. That observation certainly applied to me 2,500 years later…………

There is a saying that “One’s best success comes after their greatest disappointments” I stand as a testament to that statement. When you had that “I’m having an awesome day today. This is how I’m going to live from now on!” kind of day, how long did you? A day? Two days? Now what if I were to share a way with you that would allow you to ride near the top of every cresting wave-every day? That every day you look forward to what lies ahead. That every setback is nothing more than a setup for even greater achievements. I can assure you that it’s not only possible but inevitable if you follow a few very empowering steps. BTW – this is not some magic formula. It is there, right now, for you if you are willing to look for it. My guidance is only designed for one thing: to take years off your learning curve.

Are you satisfied with where you are right now? Are you living each moment with happiness, contentment, and fulfillment? If not, have you ever asked yourself why? You see, within you resides the power to change life from anxiety to achievement, from unbearable to undefeated.

The Romans put it best- “Sapiens aliens, stultus a suis discit - A wise man learns by the mistakes of others, a fool by his own.” Only someone who has a full life of experience, I felt, would be qualified to impart not only lessons but that hard-earned wisdom.
The first step is to clear your mind……. what happened in the past, what could happen now, what might happen in the future? All of this is nothing more than disempowering thinking. Worry begets worst-case scenarios. Worry begets ultimate failure. Empty your mind. Go to that place where knowing resides. “I’ve had many troubles in my life” said Mark Twain “most of which never happened.”

Moving beyond 
Inspired to Intending

Whether it is constructing a home or a commercial building, foundational integrity is imperative. In order to move a life to a higher point on a personal level, the same attention must be given to the self. Building on anything less than optimum strength is precarious at best and disastrous at the worst. How many people do you know - whether at work, through family or just socially - go through the pretense of material success who internally are, to put it bluntly, a mess? A few I would bet. Now how about those who you hold in the highest esteem? Not as many I’ll guess. Why? Because living a life of integrity is not common for most people. To ascend to a life filled with abundance, happiness and peace of mind is not as elusive as it might appear. It does however take dedication, commitment and an abundance of self-discipline.

The only person who can change you is yourself. This is such a worn-out cliché; however, it’s worn out due to its truth. What separates the achiever from the also-ran is how they handle their attitude - as well as their failures. How a person thinks about something, how a person perceives something, how someone goes about accomplishing something has everything to do with motivation and consistently striving to be at the top of their game. It is overcoming obstacles and overcoming the seemingly impossible. 

We observe this truth in the world of competition. Sports. We can name top-level athletes with not only tremendous talent but outstanding ability who, despite these attributes, fail to live up to their potential if not expectations. But take these same individuals and realign them with the proper motivator - in other words coach - and they excel far beyond what was once thought possible. In order to realize your goals, you too must start foundationally - in your physical body, your diet, your exercise. How you think, both through the rational and emotional mind. How you dress. How you carry yourself as you walk. What inner dialogue you use - what you are telling yourself. Your spiritual relationship. My goal as a Certified Life Coach as well as having my background as a Certified Fitness Trainer encourages you to enter a place of self-awareness, of self-realization and self-actualization. You have the power within you to achieve anything in life however without using the ability to hear God and listening to His voice, you may very well use that free will incorrectly. There lies the quandary - how to know what you are feeling, hearing through self-talk, and being led to do is truly by Divine guidance and the correct way to achieve your objective.

My style of motivating not only comes from a life of success - monetary as well as living - but also includes a life learned by difficulty. Two seemingly, diametrically opposite, set of governing factors, yet however, interminably connected as well.

My clients work. By that I mean they must adhere to a regimen of discipline. Successfully taking control of what most people consider to be mundane or routine daily performance is what separates someone who just ‘gets by’ from the true champion. Believing otherwise is nothing more than self-delusion. Doing what’s easy or “just like everyone else” can never bring gratification, let alone fulfillment, to the champion. Sadly, it seems that many people go through life in a hypnotized state. Such a waste………

If you were in search of marriage counseling, wouldn’t it make sense to speak with someone who has been married? If you were to take flying lessons, why would you take lessons from someone who has never flown? I believe that to travel through this journey called life, that it is wise to have someone who has ‘been there, done that’ to guide you. Someone who has truly been through hell and found the way to overcome adversity and can impart that wisdom to achieve unlimited success. As you consider your next step, ask yourself this important question: “What adversity, what misery, what truly painful life experience has this guru endured that can enable them to share the path to overcoming?”

If you are ready and truly serious to move beyond “hoping ‘this’ will happen” – whatever this happens to be-then email me and let’s get busy………..
