Quite a lot of thought went into choosing a name for my Life Coaching. As a result, there is much meaning behind the name Stretch and Soar. So, here we go.
Because the name itself envisions movement in a positive direction and that’s what coaching is about!
Coaching necessitates stretching
Because Coaching involves stretching ourselves, shifting positions, and going forward!
“Once a person’s mind is stretched by a new idea, it can never return to its original dimensions.” — Oliver Wendell Homes
“Once a person’s mind, body or soul has been stretched by a new idea or experience, we can never truly be the same.” — Rebecca Lile
Reaching new heights and limits
Because Coaching is about taking off to another place, reaching new heights and limits!
Do You Need to Stretch at All? Think about your physical body and how you’d feel if you didn’t stretch your body. Your muscles would get stiff and stay tight, making it hard to move freely or comfortably. When we sit or lay in the same position for awhile, or overnight, we often need to stretch just to work out the kinks and knots that come from inactivity. Once we wake up our muscles and stretch a bit, it usually makes it easier to get moving again. It’s hard to argue the benefits of stretching our physical bodies.
Well, our emotional, mental and spiritual muscles can react the same way after staying in the same position too long! If we don’t stretch those areas of our lives, we can end up stiff, tight, and inflexible. We can get stuck and not be able to move very well. Sometimes, stretching is uncomfortable but eventually we loosen up a bit and are able to move more easily.
With Stretch and Soar Coaching, I want to encourage and equip women to become aware of the areas in their lives that might need stretching, then help them create a plan where they not only stretch but soar to new heights and into a life that they love to wake up to each morning.
