10 Years of Coaching, Helping People One at a Time
“ Celes, I came to know of you when I accidentally stumbled on your esteemed site ‘Personal Excellence’ on Google. I felt as if I’ve dug out a diamond in a jungle.
“ Celes, I took part in your first Soulmate Journey course. I recently got attached and will be getting married next year. Thanks for your coaching as I feel blessed to have found my soulmate cum hubby-to-be. Thank you!
“ For years, I’ve read books, tried hypnotherapy, and engaged a coach to overcome procrastination. I even went to see ‘expert Doctors and Professors.’ Each time, I would leave with more weight added to my shoulders. Your course has made all the difference for me.
“ Hi Celes! Just wanted to let you know that thanks to your podcast, I was motivated to draw and just wrapped up the first 5 chapters of my comic. 🙂 Been doing that since March. Right now I’m starting Volume 2. So glad to be working on something I love.
“ Eight years ago, you coached me during some of my tough times. After our calls, I left my job, freed myself from all baggage, started traveling... then started building a product... which led to founding my current company. So a very positive impact from all the mentoring... You helped me do the limitless. 🙂 ”
“ Thank you for your words of wisdom about dealing with anger in families. You basically saved me from needing a lifetime of therapy and showed me a way to reflect and grow instead.
“ Hi Celes, I did your purpose exercise. As a true skeptic I thought it would never work, however in less than 30 minutes I was crying my eyes out. Thank you for being the person that you are. You are doing an amazing job at living your life purpose. 🙂
“ Thank you from the bottom of a very grateful heart for your amazing Emotional Eating program. I have learned more here than over the past 40 years. Your program has helped me understand so much more about myself and reverse destructive eating patterns. I can’t thank you enough!!!
“ Since your course, I completed my first triathlon. I raised money for the UK Refugee Agency. I have more energy to work, don't have Monday blues. I didn't even have to find a new job; instead an amazing opportunity came my way. I find it difficult to explain the glow in my soul. Thank you Celes for showing the way. 🙂
“Celes is the best coach I have seen, no motherhood statement, no bluffs. She is able to steer me to focus on the right issue, she never makes any judgment, and the calls are professionally conducted. Celes, thank you so much for drawing me to the issue. I felt lighter after Tuesday's session. ”
“ Hi Celes, I just got engaged! Me and S are getting married next year. She’s great and we’re really good together. She’s big into nature and doing things outdoors which I’m sure you’ll remember is what I really like – but don’t do enough. Thanks for being a top-notch coach. ”
“ Hi Celes, I submitted my PhD thesis about half an hour ago! I owe you a huge debt of gratitude. Your articles on efficiency and staying motivated, and your course on beating procrastination, were so helpful to me.
“ Hi Celes, next month I'll be taking on a new job which pays 40% higher than what I currently earn in a top MNC. This is a testimony of the unbelievable results just after two months of taking your Anti-Procrastination Course. Thank you! =)
“ Absolutely love your writing. Your articles resonate very powerfully with me and I look forward to continuing my leadership using your experiential wisdom. That’s really all I want to say — thank you for helping this 35-year-old father of two become the best father, professional, leader, and all-round person he can be.
“ I have been reading PE for almost a decade ago now. I don’t like self-help books or sites and I don’t remember which article of yours I clicked on in Google, but you were totally different from everyone else. So I started reading everything! Over the years I’ve participated in your challenges, bought 30DLBL, subscribed to your newsletter, read like crazy. You have helped me through many things and I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping complete strangers live better lives and be better people.
“ While reading your article, I was so emotional that I just wanted to run away all the way through my country, the Indian Ocean, the Andaman Sea and the Straits of Malacca to reach to you and hug you with tears rolling down. The depth of your writing has really resonated with the depth of my heart.
“ Your articles have been an eye opener. I have subscribed to many personal development sites, and most of them just seem to rehash, rewrite and publish the same advice over and over again. But I was surprised to see that you don't do that. The clarity and truth of your writing resonates deep. I have to say, I am one step ahead in my enlightenment just from reading your blog.
“ Thank you for your series on recognizing when a friendship has come to an end and how to handle it. It has helped me work through a challenging time in my life and I appreciate how candid you were in your writing about such a difficult experience. 🙂
“ I've been asking myself the question "Why am I so angry" a lot lately, so I decided to read your anger series. It really hit close to my heart and I almost broke down in the middle of the library. I've decided to write a letter to my father, a person I've been harboring negative emotions to my whole life. Thank you again for everything, giving me courage through your words.
“ I just wanted to commend you on a wonderful resource. I have done the self-help thing many times over, but you offer a fresh perspective and really have zeroed in on some of my key issues—perfectionism, disappointment, etc.
“ Your course was far beyond my expectations, and I was expecting a lot. As a teacher and a small-time leader, I take my hat off to you. From 30BBM, I have learned to use powerful tools, face my fears, and overcome them. It is amazing to see that I'm now more organized, disciplined, focused, purposeful, and a better friend and family member.
“ Hi Celes, thank you for this amazing 30-day program to live a better life. I started the qualification I wanted to do for many years, made a plan for my fitness, and helped a young person find his way in life.
