Welcome to Life Teaches Foundation
Jul 05, 2018
"Life Teaches Foundation was created to empower and restore hope and faith in humanity, in the spirit of people helping people to solve all the world’s problems, one problem at a time, one person at a time."
That was our original mission statement.
Our goal is to end the homelessness epidemic on a global scale.
Our new mission statement is:
To Inspire, Empower and Support every individual and organization to help triage and resolve the issues that perpetuate homelessness
By bringing together all existing resources to solve a common problem, anything can be accomplished.
In searching for resources and researching what's needed it came upon me one day:
If there are so many existing resources already available, why is there still a problem?
I kept hearing "Who's your competition?" and I got a cringe.
The word competition doesn't sit well with me. Why are we competing? Aren't we all trying for the same goal: TO END HOMELESSNESS
In my work as a coach, I help people achieve their goals: no matter what they are.
I get to know who you are. I listen to your stories. I ask a lot of questions.
I find out what you want. What does a better life look like to you? What's missing from your life? Together, we find direction. I walk your journey with you.
We use whatever resources are available to achieve your goals, no matter what those goals are.
- If you are a business owner, the end result is an understanding of your employees, your market and yourself.
- If you're homeless, the end result is revived or newfound faith in a world you may have thought had abandoned you.
We charge on a sliding scale to rule out that "excuse". We charge according to your current income. As we work together, our hope is that you'll be inspired to become a resource for us and those we serve. As your income grows so does your membership fee.
While money provides options, without people what resources do we have? All the money in the world holds no value without someone to pay for the services or goods you need.
As we build the foundation of our organization, our resources are limited.
When you have money, you can afford to pay for what you need from whoever you know can provide for you. The fewer your resources, the fewer your options. You learn to make do with what’s available.
The people you connect yourself to and the quality of those connections is what provides the resources you lack within yourself, be it experience, skills or insight. As you learn how to do more with what you have, soon you find you have more to work with.
Please know that we are working hard behind the scenes to make our resources as available to you as possible.
A grateful heart attracts more to be grateful for
Some of the issues that keep us from reaching our goals are:
Wounds left untreated create scars. That applies to emotional as well as physical.
Life Teaches coaches you through the healing process so you can not only see the best version of yourself, but become as happy and successful as you can see.
- You don't know what to do next.
People act like it's easy, Just do this or do that, right?
Taking into consideration where you are in your life and where you want to go, Life Teaches helps you find the resources you need to get you there and walks your journey with you to help you when you stumble.
- You're afraid to take the next step because new is always scary.
Any change is scary, even positive change. You don't know what to expect. A bad situation gets comfortable because at least you know what to expect. May you were happy at one point and it all disappeared or got taken away. What if you get happy again and that happens again?
Life Teaches offers support to help you protect your newfound life. By learning how to deal with difficulties and challenges when they present themselves (which they will) you can be ready to face the curve-balls life throws at you.
In this world of more than 7.5 BILLION people, no one should feel like they have to face anything alone. With all the resources that exist today, it is unacceptable that we still hear stories of people who are dying from exposure to severe weather!
No matter what the goal is, how many times do we have to see proof that, if we work together, we can do anything, including ending homelessness on a global scale.
Then we move onto the next!
