Benefits of Life Coaching with Jewel aka “The Self-esteem Dr.”


Too often we feel a sense of shame, guilt or over responsibility ( e.g. feel like a bad Christian, bad wife, bad mother, bad sister, bad daughter). Or our inner self-talk says, “if I don’t ‘help or give.”…or “They will be in danger if I don’t help.” ….”or  “If I stay or if I prove or if I make him feel better, he will love me.” “I’ve invested so much already in this relationship and I don’t know how to stop the manipulation.” …”They need me because I have always been the; e.g. giver, the fixer, the savior, the rescuer, the breadwinner, the strong one in this family.”

I’ve been there and I’ve done that. Thank God I’m not what I used to be. Are you ready to stop playing the “rescue sheroe role”?

I empower my life coaching clients to GROW :
from procrastination to action,
from low self-esteem to a healthy worthiness,
from fear to faith,
from doubt to done, from idea to implementation, from setback to bounce back!

testimony Ollie

Is your life puzzling, problematic, painful, peaceful, productive or progressing? Life can seem like a mystery, magical, puzzling, exhausting, exciting, a battle or a blessing. The challenge for us all is to learn to trust the unknown and yet live in the present proactively planning our future.

” Jewel is an extremely astute coach, mentor, listener and guide. I had an initial Skype session with Jewel some time back. Since then I have aimed to put in to practice the clear steps she advised me to look at and work on. However, recently I hit a wall, and had an epiphany of what lay at the heart of the majority of my very long standing ‘ negative – self’mindset issues and this resulting suppressant to reach the potential God is calling me to. I knew how deeply significant this was for me and that I’d arrived at a clear watershed in my life. I immediately knew I needed to speak with Jewel. I knew she would read my situation, understand and discern with incisive authority, speaking courage, truth, honour and measured calm in the way that was necessary and fully appropriate to me. I can’t recommend her highly enough. If you are really serious in turning your damaged mindsets round in your life for good so you can move on permanently speak with Jewel to get you on the right path and beyond. Jewel is the total package and genuine spirit-filled- sent article for those of us who need genuine encouragement and a restoration of true self worth.” Emily, United Kingdom

You may be perplexed by your past choices or present circumstances. You can be baffled about your next step because you are isolated or over think the process.  You may be stuck in grief, depression or a dysfunctional lifestyle. You may not understand that your problems are an invitation to grow in discernment, courage, wisdom, purpose, faith, fortitude or emotional intelligence. Sure, at times we feel confused and anxious. We wonder whether we’re making the “right decision.” Thoughts haunt us like…”What am I going to do with my life? “What have I done with my life ?@!#!” or “I’m ready to make something out of my life!” We begin to lack trust in ourselves and in the faithfulness of God.

a little progress

  As you grow in your coping skills, faith, self-esteem, relationships, anger issue and purpose you will be able to see how the pieces of your life are coming together. Nothing you have done has been a waste of time. Patience, prayer, perseverance and taking proactive steps will help you to see progress.

If you are enthusiastic about your goal, you will need direction.
If you are discouraged, you will benefit from coaching.
If you are cautious in moving forward, you will need support.
If you have a goal, you will either GIVE UP or GROW up in your commitment, endurance, faith, perseverance, and capacity for success.

“My decision to meet with Jewel as a Life Coach was a divine life changing decision. Jewel was so easy to talk to and I instantly felt comfortable enough to open up and share things that I had not shared before. She truly understood me which meant so much. The nuggets of wisdom that I walked away with I will forever treasure. She is truly an anointed Woman of God.” – B. W. (California)

“I took advantage of this and it was by far one of the best experiences/ coaching session ever. I was very touched that Mrs. Taylor ended our coaching session in Prayer not to mention I felt like a conqueror afterwards. I’m in desperate need of another coaching session and hopefully I can secure of of the available slots. Thank you!!” Wendy Reed

Choices Matter

choices matter
“Every minute…every day you are making choices that could bring you closer to achieving success, peace, financial growth, love, health and purposeful living. Today you will choose between good or unhealthy food choices (e.g. snacks or salad). You will choose between spending or saving. You will choose who to talk to, who to avoid or who to ask questions. You will choose to walk or sit. You will choose to speak up or be quiet. You will choose to be confident or shy. You will choose fear or faith. You will choose to take action or procrastinate. You will choose to stay angry or forgive and let go.  You choose who gets your time, body, trust, love and finances.  You will choose to waste time or maximize your time. You will choose people into your life who can add to your success or distract and subtract from your success. You will choose integrity or dishonesty.  You will choose patience and endurance or you will choose to stressed, impatient and rude.  You will choose peace and love or choose hatred, prejudice and jealousy.  You will choose comfort and convenience or you will choose to grow out of your comfort zone. You will choose to sabotage your talent and gifts or you will choose to polish up your talent and gifts.
Popular leadership speaker and author John Maxwell says, “Talent is not enough.” Talent allows you to stand out, but wrong choices can set you back.
I have seen in my own life choices where I sabotaged my success or where I totally changed the trajectory of my life. Your choices are shaped by the people who influence you. Your choices are shaped by our habits. Our habits can be hard to break. However, when you realize your habits are hindering your success, relationships, finances, health and peace…it’s time to start maker wiser choices.
Your choices can minimize your talent, self-worth, confidence and possibilities for love and success. Are you ready to maximize your potential and possibilities?
I totally, 100% agree with author John Maxwell who shares 13 key choices that can make maximize your talent.

1. BELIEF lifts your talent.
2. PASSION energizes your talent.
3. INITIATIVE activates your talent.
4. FOCUS directs your talent.
5. PREPARATION positions your talent.
6. PRACTICE sharpens your talent.
7. PERSEVERANCE sustains your talent.
8. COURAGE tests your talent.
9. TEACHABILITY expands your talent.
10. CHARACTER protects your talent.
11. RELATIONSHIPS influence your talent.
12. RESPONSIBILITY strengthens your talent.
13. TEAMWORK multiplies your talent.

If you have talent, you stand alone. If you have talent plus these above attributes, you stand out!
