Could you be more inspired and motivated to achieve big results?
Now’s the time to get started.

 

David Schofield sig

Purpose takes centre stage in every high achiever’s life. It’s the hardest, but most fulfilling thing you’ll ever commit yourself to.

You are the only one that can do your job. Therefore, it’s vital that you discover what your piece of the puzzle is and get on with it pronto.

Realising and living your purpose is challenging and will take some time, but it will be the most fulfilling thing you’ll ever do.

I don’t mess about.
I take our work seriously.
If you don’t fulfil your purpose, no one else will.

I look forward to helping you become the very best version of yourself.

what my clients say

 

 

When I was young I was convinced that I had to make life what I wanted it to be. Whether it was negotiating with classmates for control of the poster paints, or leading the neighbours kids on an adventure away from the watchful eyes of parents – I was determined to lead.

This determination saw me choose my corporate career path at 14 years old. I became fixated on success – working toward the life of many things and little else that had been taught to me.

But when I reached 21 years old, I realised the power of my intention. The blindness I had had to who I really was. Despite the strong will that I had, there was a more subtle part that had been neglected for a long time.

That subtle part was very perceptive. It recognised that advice should never be given by someone who hasn’t had good results with that advice themselves. But I was surrounded by such attempts to validate poor life choices.

This left me somewhat adrift…

Why had I pushed for this life for 7 years, to be surrounded by people who are not qualified to tell me how to live, but for some reason I was required to listen to. No!

I needed to learn to look after myself better, form better relationships and build a life that I could be proud of.

So I went about finding out how. I spent the next decade experimenting. Starting businesses and voluntary organisations, organising festivals, training in martial arts, studying frantically and living communally, to learn just what it was that made life MINE.

What I discovered was that… In order to achieve the highest results I could, the activities I committed to needed to be in alignment with who I am at my core. The more alignment, the higher the achievement.

It has been one hell of a journey of personal development – pulling myself apart and putting myself back together in many ways. But the results are now evident as my relationships flourish, I live in a beautiful part of the world with a growing family and work moves from strength to strength.

I’m now in the position to teach what I’ve learned as a high performance coach, visionary leader and martial arts teacher.

I support a handful of dedicated clients to reach the heights of their capacity, by facing themselves and reaching higher levels of integrity and achievement than they knew were possible.

Who This Is For

High aiming professionals who want to sharpen themselves

More is being required of us these days. But longer hours don’t necessarily equate to better output. Working hard AND smart is the way forward – with better working practices, a more focused and disciplined mind and clarity on why you do what you do, you will be the highest achiever in your space before long.

People who want to gain a greater work-life balance

There are so many distractions taking up our time and attention that we end up running on fumes, not able to give our all to the projects and people who need us most. Critically assessing how you live your life can lead to better decisions and a better life all round.

Leaders who need to navigate complexity and change

The world is getting far more complex these days and our heritage of left-brain thinking is starting to fail us. What’s the alternative? Learning to navigate the unknown that lies ahead can be daunting. That’s how I live and I’d like to share how.

How We’ll Work

Coaching and Mentoring

We will meet regularly to discuss your progress between sessions, troubleshoot any recurring issues and you will be able to ask questions around the various pieces of content we will be working with.

Self-study Work

Between sessions I will provide you with self-study course materials which you can work through at your own pace and submit to me for feedback throughout our period of work. This will help you gain clarity on your motivations, set goals and practice high performance working skills.

On-going Accountability

For those who want extra support, you have the opportunity to check-in with me daily, so I can ensure you’re keeping to the goals and activities we agreed you would commit to.

For those committed few, networking events are held regularly.

What We’ll Focus On

Your Foundations

For anyone trying to build something stable, grow a business, earn money, improve their health, and/or enhance their material condition, we’ll focus on building strong foundations. These foundations will ensure that you are able to cope with the modern world’s constant demands while building inner strength, health, and wellbeing. And while we often worry that making the necessary changes to see a real improvement in our lives will mean radical changes, the reality is that all you need to do is make a few simple adjustments and then practise them consistently. In truth, the life you want can be just a few simple, grounded steps away.

Your Relationships

Relationships are for the brave and committed, those seeking long-term contentment. And yet relationships are extremely challenging. Intimacy, romance, love, colleagues, friendship, community, marriage, and family: there is no opportunity for growth quite like looking at how we act in, and what we get from, our relationships. Especially when we start to delve into what kind of people we surround ourselves with. Learning which relationships to grow, and which to detach from, is a tricky but essential skill when building a successful life. Together we can ground your relationships in self-awareness, honesty, and emotional maturity.

Your Purpose

We all have times in our life when we feel lost and directionless. It's normal. But that sense that there must be more to life than this can be a signal that you’re missing something, even if you’re already on the road of adventure, involved in projects and developments, and generally trying to get stuff done. That thing might be knowing your purpose in life. Our sense of purpose can make us jump out of bed each morning and bring excitement to each day. It brings together all of our skills, interests, experiences, and aptitude. Knowing what our individual purpose is can take us towards the life we want to lead. And to live out such a purposeful life, that would be a real privilege, no?

 

 

approach head

Our coaching will see great results in your life and requires deep commitment.

If you’re not ready to see yourself fully, allowing all your capacities to emerge while clearly facing the parts of you that hold you back, then this coaching isn’t for you. Facing ourselves as we are – and not as we’d like to be seen – takes courage and determination, and will at times leave you feeling very raw and very vulnerable. But it will transform both your inner life and your outer world, and the changes will be lasting.

We will work by quickly cutting through to the core issues, helping you to find new paths and uncover all the stories you have been holding onto that may not be in service to greatest success.

My approach is direct, and though it may be painful to see what you may be hiding behind, I commit to providing the support and acceptance necessary as I challenge your preconceptions and bring awareness to your blind spots.

Because everyone is different, the work we do together will be unique. And although your progress is yours alone, I commit to supporting every single client with the skills, experience, knowledge, compassion and acceptance that has taken me great toil to develop.

 

 

 

in depth head

Purpose involves every aspect of life. Therefore, my coaching and training always focuses on your foundations, your relationships, and what fires you up (with varying emphasis on each depending on what's most important at the time). Along with that, there's a healthy balance of contemplation, philosophy, and action taking. We need to figure out what your purpose is, then get out there and make it happen.

4-Month Coaching Programme

A minimum commitment of 4 months is recommended to make sure you start seeing the results you're looking for. And, if after 14 days you feel the program isn't right for you, I will return your money without question.

1  To develop a robust plan and lifestyle that will facilitate you moving toward your goals
2  To develop deeper relationships so you have more support and a more fulfilling life

Our work will include:

1  Creating a personalised development framework.
2  Empowering you with the skills and practises to continue your work following the coaching period
3  As many extra resources as you have capacity for. The more you put in, the more you get out

During the coaching you will benefit from:

1  An Introductory 90 minute coaching session with me to establish where you are now and where you want to be
2  Over each 4 month period, you'll receive 9 x 60 minute coaching session to ensure you're making progress toward your goals
