When I first started working with Cody, I was finalizing a divorce and was completely directionless of where I wanted to go in life, having left ministry after nearly a decade in it. As a result, I realized that I had always played my life on everyone else's terms. So the very first thing Cody had me do was figure out my why - and I had never had one before, beyond trying to fit a certain image for everyone else. But he asked me to dig down deep into myself and figure out who I wanted to show up for, and what it would take to do it.
It wasn't easy. I honestly felt anxious and lost for a solid week, questioning everything about myself, and everything about all the stories I had told myself over the years. And so when I finally came up with answers, it felt like I was able to skip over a giant and slow inevitable mid-life crisis and answer the difficult questions of my life right now. I wanted to be able to serve a new generation really well, and I wanted to do it through writing a book.
This wasn't the answer I was expecting at all to come up with, but it was suddenly crystal clear, and because of that, Cody's coaching changed my belief about what was possible, and how quickly. The things that I thought would take me years, with the habits and systems Cody helped me put into place, made it possible for me to accomplish them just in three months.
In those three months, I finished writing a book, sent it off to an editor, lost 25 pounds, was lifting heavier than ever at the gym, and found myself opening up relationally and romantically again. All because I started showing up for myself and my why, first and foremost, every single day, before I even thought about how to do anything for anyone else.
I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that working with Cody has been one of the most fruitful, transformative, and effective times of my whole life.
