GAP Model for LIFE Coaching
Achieving a balanced and inspired life requires an intentional encompassing approach. The GAP Inspiration Model helps you achieve an inspired fulfilled life by ensuring you are holistically happy and stable. The model starts with addressing your Preservation level to ensure things like stress, financial security, and safety are addressed. That creates a foundation you can build from as you move to the Associations level. That is where you will begin to build positive relationships and support structures. It goes beyond family focusing on friends and other partnerships that are not family bound. By having a support structure that satisfies your personality type you dramatically increase your success. Finally you reach the pinnacle where sustainable growth is achievable. This is where you can build habits that transform your life and inspiration that drives success. The growth level is where you want to be but isn’t truly achievable with shortcuts or motivational slogans.
