On-Air Coaching: Session III with Cynthia Culver & Lois Martin || Bonus Episode #3

On-Air Coaching - Session III-v3.png

How has a “broken mindset” kept you from all that God created you to be? Or from the dreams He created you to pursue for His Kingdom?

If you’ve been with us for the last two episodes of On-Air Coaching between me, life coach Cynthia Culver, and Devoted Dreamers listener Lois Martin, maybe you’ve begun to consider your answers to these two questions.

Or, if you’ve started working through the homework (by the way, you’ll find it here, with additional info here and here about how to get the most out of the worksheets) maybe you’ve begun to identify what your broken mindset looks like, feels like or sounds like.

Or maybe you’re a little behind, and if that’s the case, you'll want to listen to Session I or Session II before you listen this one, for a little context.

In this conversation, the final episode in our three-part series, Cynthia focuses on the DEVELOPMENT component of coaching. You’ll hear us cover some topics that might resonate with you:

  • How the “pros” became experts in their field/dream
  • Understanding what triggers your broken mindset
  • How to trigger the mindset of the Spirit instead
  • What to do with negative thoughts that keep coming back
  • Another way to think about failure (or fear of failure)
  • Why perfectionism will keep you from your dream

As you hear Lois talk about how God has worked through the coaching process and what she’s learned along the way, consider what actions have (or could) help you trigger the mindset of truth in you, instead of the broken mindset.

Each of the three On-Air Coaching episodes focuses on one of three components to coaching. Here’s a little cheat-sheet that clarifies the focus of each conversation we had with Lois:

Session I - Discovery: Identify what is driving your current results: beliefs, patterns, and choices.

Session II - Direction: Evaluate current results and establish new and clear direction.

Session III - Development: Develop a plan by identifying new beliefs, patterns, and choices that produce results in line with your new direction.

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
~ Colossians 3:2 (NIV)

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
~ 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
~ Galatians 5:1 (NIV)

Go to the ant, O sluggard,
Observe her ways and be wise,
Which, having no chief,
Officer or ruler,
Prepares her food in the summer
And gathers her provision in the harvest.

~ Proverbs 6:6-8 (NASB)

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
~ Romans 7:15 (NIV)
