Michele Adler, ACC - Certified Holistic & Mindset Mastery Coach
I am so blessed to be here sharing why I do, what I love to do, with you. Thank you for visiting with me!
I have been very lucky in my life to always be able to try new things, move new places and meet new people. These experiences have paved the way for me expand my life's vision, always keep my head up and seek out positive outcomes no matter what!
The early part of "me" consisted of:
I called this time in my life running the Dreaded Hamster Wheel. I like to talk about that a lot because I think we all get stuck on it at some point in our life. Perpetually running our life in a never ending circle of boredom, indecision and despair. Well I got tired of that run and made the jump. Was it easy? No! But...it opened the most amazing doors of opportunity for me. Even as you read this I open them, door after door every day.
I did have help. I had just learned how to set my boundaries and say "NO". The legal job I had was killing me with mandatory overtime, no sick time and a very toxic environment. When I learned to set my boundaries and say "No" to the onslaught of overtime, I didn't expect to be put on probation.
I went back to my therapist and asked her "was this supposed happen? I think I have to quit" - she said "YES!" I was stunned. The positive mindset was trigged in me to get moving. I went right into a field I new nothing about and started school. I became a licensed massage therapist and opened my own business!
I had my boutique day spa for 10 years. I won the Small Business of the Year Award in 2000. I made so many friends, had a long client list and many business associates it was my dream! I loved working with my clients. I loved helping them to make the most out of their lives every which way I could. I sought out certifications to further my education. My favorites are CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki, Mindfulness and I even got my estheticians license. If my clients needed something I tried my best to learn it. As I mentioned, the doors of opportunity just kept opening so I just kept on stepping through.
I met my husband in 2000 who I just adore! We got married at the Jupiter Lighthouse in 2004, it was magical. We have two kitties Olive & Martini, and our boat Soulshine which we named in honor of his brother Brad who we miss tremendously! We have been through a lot together. Life isn't easy, but for us it is seamless. When you can finish each other's sentences you know it was meant to be. Soulmates! My parents live here in Florida and my little sister and her family are in Marietta, Georgia. My mom is one of my biggest fans and I can't thank her enough for her support throughout the years.
I made the unbelievable decision to close my spa in 2006 and go back into the corporate world. The grass is not always greener than you think. So I dabbled on both sides of the fence working my corporate gig and back into the spa industry hoping to figure it out. Instead I started to fall apart.
In 2014 I had heart surgery. In 2015 more surgery. I took 2016 off from everything except work. Then in May 2017, Cinco de Mayo to be exact, I was diagnosed with Anal Cancer. Really???? When the doctor told me, the only thing I could think of was how do I tell Sam? His brother died from cancer in 2013. He has already been through endometriosis, fibromyalgia and so much more with me and now this. I went through two hospital stays of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation. I won't give up all my juicy details at once, I'll be putting them out in blogs. Just too much positivity to share and I'm not kidding about that. Want proof? Example: I was amazed that chemo makes you "tan". Yes that's exactly how I looked at it. I was "tan" all summer while I was in treatment.
After I finished my treatment at the end of July 2017 I was lost. I didn't want to be where I was working and wanted to go back to holistic healing. Massage was out of the question. My mom suggested Life Coaching. She is a genius!! She always wanted me to be a doctor, but a Life Coach was much more in line with me and my holistic mind. I got my certification as a Holistic Life Coach and ICF ACC Certification. A lot of hard work but worth it!
I feel blessed to have gone through that experience. It taught me a lot, I met a lot of new friends and and here I am today.
I live and breathe by my mantra Imagine, Believe and Become. I have made more things happen in my life because of this belief system than I can list for you here. When I truly want something in my life I work very hard at it. I don't just simply dream it up and wish for it to appear. I imagine my vision, believe it to be true and then become what serves me best. My health, my finances, my cars, my house, my husband - yes, him too. Just a few examples of what I set my mindset to and produced. There is a method to the magic.
It is my mission to share my gift with others. I would love to share them with you!
