Why do some people thrive while others struggle?

Is there a common denominator to achievement? 

p.s. - It isn't money, brains or luck

I will help you connect the dots by finding the heartbeat of your ideas and passions, and then support you to build a better life around them. You don't need to be fixed or saved. You need to understand  your talents and gifts and learn to use them in more powerful ways for your highest good.

What people say about how coaching changed their lives

What clients say about working with me

David is a caring soul who has always paid close attention to the journey of the heart. He has never moved with the crowd but rather always sought his own pathway to contentment and serenity. I found myself in deep conversations with him about the issues in my own journey. It is in his very nature to listen and care about what he is hearing. He has a very intuitive way of helping people find their own path of self realization and move closer to their destiny. I feel this isn’t something David has learned as much as is a gift that he has been born with.

David asks the most fabulously uncomfortable questions with compassion and curiosity. I usually find myself chewing on those questions for days, and our conversations unfailingly lead me to some deeper understanding about what’s important, and help me find greater clarity about what I need to do. He’s creative, direct, gentle, and 100% trustworthy.

The power of coaching with David Frank Gomes
I did not know what to expect from life coaching, but in the space of three months, I made more positive changes than I had in the last two years! I started working with David because I was stuck in a rut. Not only did he help me get out of this rut, but his ability to delve deeply into what makes me tick was life changing. His questions and practical approach always challenged and pushed me in positive ways. His ability to cut through the noise and get to the root of an issue is a true gift.

Growth mindset

Happiness is worth investing in

The Happiness Exchange Rate is a simple principle that every choice you make is an investment or ‘unit of experience’  ---   exchanged for happiness (or not).  Living a life of purpose brings fulfillment, raised self esteem, increased abundance and gives you more time to do what you love. Why not be one of those people?


What I have learned and offer to you

Over the years of working with many people, I started to notice a pattern. Those individuals who have the highest levels of  satisfaction have a common denominator, and guess what - it's not wealth, brains or work ethic. They just have a higher Happiness Exchange Rate.

I have discovered that anyone can develop the capacity to improve their Happiness through a few key principles and characteristics which I outline in my Satisfaction Manifesto

Whole Life Coaching is a system based on this principle.

I started working with David at a time when I was feeling ‘trapped’. I hadn’t booked any work in months and was going through a rough bout of depression. I felt like David immediately understood me and designed a plan that worked incredibly well for me. My coaching was customized perfectly to fit my needs, and the goal setting and ‘homework’ he gave me was explorative and eye-opening. In the last four weeks of our coaching cycle together, I booked 4 jobs, not to mention feeling so much more free and liberated and excited about life again.

I have said this to my friends about my work with him and will say it again to anyone even remotely interested and considering life coaching... Best money I’ve ever spent. Total game changer for me.
