Hast du wie ich alles durch? Jahre von Yoga, Meditation, Achtsamkeit, Psychotherapie, Lebensberatungen, Salbeiräucherungen, Frauenkreisen und gesundem Essen? Und trotzdem fühlt sich alles immer noch ein wenig richtungslos an? Du eierst mehr oder weniger ohne klares Ziel vor dich hin und all deine Bemühungen führen leider nie so richtig zum Erfolg?
Dann brauchst du einen Coach
Ich lasse mich seit neun Monaten von der internationalen Coachess Ashley Paquin in Herzens -, Business – und Lebensfragen beraten und habe für mich den letzten Marker zum Glücklichsein gefunden: Ich habe eine klare Ausrichtung. Ich weiß genau, was meine große Aufgabe in diesem Leben ist und wie ich mit meiner Liebe, meinem Wissen und meiner Authentizität dazu beitragen kann, dass dieser Planet ein schönerer Platz wird. Und das ist so unglaublich erleichternd – endlich zu wissen, wo mein Platz ist und in welche Richtung ich gehen werde.
Was Ashley so besonders macht:
Heute möchte ich dir Ashley mal vorstellen, denn diese Frau ist einfach der Knaller. Was mir an ihr besonders gut gefällt: Sie tut nicht so, als wäre alles perfekt in ihrem Leben. Sie zeichnet kein unerreichbares Bild von sich, alles im Griff zu haben. Sie selbst ist work in progress. Sie teilt ihre persönlichen Geschichten und ist dadurch einfach nahbar.
Und habe ich schon erwähnt, dass diese Frau mein Leben um 180 Grad gedreht hat? Weil Ashley so viel Klarheit, Ausrichtung und Erfolg in mein Leben gebracht hat, möchte ich sie euch vorstellen
Interview mit Ashley Paquin, International Life Coach
Ashley, what was going on in your life 10 years ago?
Ten years ago I was 27 and clueless with what I was doing with my life. I had big dreams that I wanted to travel and teach but had no idea how I was going to make this happen. I was in school for International Studies and working as a waitress. Inside I was depressed. I wanted to know my life’s purpose but had no idea how to even start the process. And I was afraid- I was afraid to be the woman I wanted. I was afraid of both my success and failure. I was afraid to ask for what I want as there was a deep seated belief that I wasn’t worthy enough. Yet, there was something in me hungry for more and no just the material stuff like a car and dream job. I was hungry for my place in the world, to know a deeper meaning to life, to feel connected to God or intuition and to be of use to something good. I wanted to make a positive difference, but just needed help figuring out the how.
What was the dumbest thing you believed in? And what changed your mind?
I once believed that I wasn’t good or worthy enough. These unconscious beliefs would then sabotage my efforts and made life really hard. This costed me thousands of dollars, good relationships, my health and many missed opportunities. My feeling of not being good enough got in the way of everything I did.
Working with a mentor changed everything. I spent many years working with David Sawyer (former strategist to the Dalai Lama and White House) and Matt Kahn (spiritual teacher from Seattle, Washington). Having support and guidance from people who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself changed the entire course of my life. I learned how to love and believe in myself in the deepest way possible.
Why do you do what you do?
I want women to feel good enough, smart enough, worthy enough and ready.
I want women to feel confident and joyful as to why they’re alive.
I want women to know who they are, and become the woman they admire.
I want women to know how to work with fear so they’re free to be successful.
How did you become a coach?
I became a coach after my life fell apart. In one year’s time I was dumped by the man I thought I was going to marry, I had a terrible bike accident that nearly killed me and three months of vertigo. I was at the end of my rope. I had to figure my shit out as there was no other way but up.
What happens if someone starts coaching?
A good coach will help you clearly identify what you want, what’s not working and work with you to transform your mindset as to what is possible. Good coaches will help you transform limiting beliefs and hold you accountable so you’re doing what you want/need to be doing.
What are the biggest problems your clients have?
I help my clients solve three big problems:
I help them clearly identify their life’s purpose so they’re living meaningful, purposeful and joyful lives.
I help them transform the guilt of wanting more so they feel good enough to have whatever they want and can receive success.
I help clients transform fear into grounded courage, confidence and clarity.
What happens if you live with intention and alignment?
You’ll have everything you want and more. I promise. When you live with intention and alignment you’re acting and thinking as the woman you truly are, not as who you think you “should” be. This helps life put you in the exact right places at the exact right times. Door open, opportunities show up and everything clicks.
Will you share a success story of a client with us?
I’ve worked with hundreds if not thousands of women at this point. I could write a book on their successes, but here are a few:
A woman finally overcomes years of bulimia because she learns to love herself, her body and her story.
A woman transforms her fear of being successful and launches her own business in marketing and advertising and creates the exact life, family, income and business of her dreams.
A woman who was once bullied at work and felt like she had no voice, turns this terrible situation into her life’s purpose to help other women find their most authentic voice and confidence.
What has been the most memorable experience in your career?
I hosted a small women’s retreat in Lagos, Portugal. I helped 13 women clearly identify what they want, what their life’s purpose is and how they’re going to make it happen. This was my first time hosting a retreat, and it was the first time I visited Europe. I traveled around Portugal and France alone and it was fucking awesome. My lifelong dream of traveling and teaching finally came to life.

What is your ultimate tipp that my readers can do right now to change their lives for the better?
Be honest with what is and isn’t working. Ask yourself what you really want and find a mentor to help you make this happen. This is your life, not a dress rehearsal. Find someone who will stay with you and teach you how to navigate life’s ups and downs so you’re stronger, wiser and living the life of your dreams.
