Thank you poem

“We all influence others just by being who we each are. But when they can feel your positive influence and reflect it back it is sublime and fulfilling!” - Tadayoshi Inoue

As many who know me, know that I coach many clients and athletes and have done so for over 30 years. For years I never asked for feedback or for reflections on my work with my clients. I just figured my work would stand on its own merit. 

But I do get wonderful emails and notes from so many that I work with telling me how much they got out of my work and how much I helped them. But I recently got a wonderful poem from a client whom I coached and I wanted to share it with you all. 

I worked with Leah on mindfulness and on mindset. She is a wonderful poet and she was inspired to write something about our work together. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I have.

Hey Tad

I want to thank you

I want to praise you

I want to bestow upon you

The blessings of peace love and joy

Stay humble

Stay strong

My heart and mind

I breath

In my championship

Of survival

I acknowledged self

And my self

I can rest easy 

Knowing I can do this

So I pray to you

And many forces of the world

A steadfast focus

Lessons learned

Desires and needs

In one

Mindful of my place

Presence and Being

I am breathing

I am loved and love in return

Thank you. My inspiration. My teacher and sage. 

You have managed to bring full circle and connect the dots of philosophies and spiritualities together and awakened my mind and spirit.

Thank you
