Life is heart-achingly beautiful. There are moments you wish you could hold onto forever. It’s also messy, challenging and mysterious. Everybody has an issue they're struggling with, no matter how good their life looks on paper. Sometimes you win, and it’s intoxicating. Sometimes, in spite of your most heroic efforts, you lose and it’s makes you question everything.
We all wonder what epic feat we might be capable of, if we weren’t always second guessing ourselves, or fearing failure. Don't we all share the desire to live a life we feel proud of? Don't we all want to understand our gifts and talents and use them for our highest good?
So how do we find what we’re looking for? How do we create better circumstances? How do we learn to enjoy our life, even while striving to make it better, richer and deeper?
I combine two powerful methods, which together help solve problems, create transformations and begin to reveal profound levels of satisfaction in our personal and professional lives. It is the intersection where perennial wisdom meets contemporary coaching.
Mindfulness brings clarity, insight, acceptance and harmony. It is the most powerful technique to heal your life.
Whole Life Coaching connects the dots between your values, purpose, gifts and talents, allowing you to create a compelling personal vision for the future, empowering yourself towards your highest point of contribution, and making it easier to reach cherished goals.
Most of us are so hard on ourselves.
Take a moment
Sit down and breath
Marvel at your life
At the suffering that made you stronger
At the grief that softened you
At the kindness you have experienced in others
At the joy you have noticed in the most ordinary of things
In the love of family and friends
Despite everything, you are here, still growing
Still seeking, still trying
I hope you are proud of yourself.
Hello, I'm David Frank Gomes. Welcome to my work and online home.
What people say about working with me
Why do some people thrive while others struggle? Is there a common denominator to wellbeing and achievement?
p.s. - It isn't money, brains or luck
The key to effective and rapid transformation
Start where you are
Use what you have, and begin no matter what the obstacles or how many times you have failed.
Don't let wins and losses define you - they are the price of admission to a life of fulfillment.
Work from the inside out
Learn simple effective ways to tap in to your powerful inner resources.
Your inner life is the source of your hidden strength and is what powers every breakthrough
See problems as opportunities in disguise
Sometimes a wonderful gift may come in a wrapping you don't expect.
Turn your problems into questions. Turn your answers into small steps and let your steps build a bridge to a more meaningful life.
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.
