  • How to Help Your Teen Overcome Procrastination
    Procrastination is something that can affect any person of any age. While children are often prodded to overcome procrastination by their parents, by the time a child is a teenager, doing what needs to be done in a timely fashion becomes his or her own responsibility. If your teen is struggling with procrastination, there are some things you can do to help the situation. Try implementing these six steps to help your teen overcome procrastination. 1. Teach Your Teen How to Prioritize and Manage Time Many teens and adults procrastinate because they simply have not learned good time management skills. People are not born knowing how to manage their time, and if you have a teen who is easily distracted and overwhelmed, it’s a skill that could make a big difference in how much he or she procrastinates. There are many methods for learning time management. First, make sure your teen has a planner of some sort. People who struggle with procrastination often find that the kind that lays each day out by the hour is the most effective and easy to use. Then have him or her fill in due dates, his or her work schedule, and whatever other obligations need to be met. Talk to your teen about how long each task will take (encourage him or her to allow more time than they think is necessary), and assign a time for each item to get done. Just having it down in writing can help a teen avoid procrastinating and putting things off. 2. Suggest Rewards for Staying on Task While virtue is its own reward, it’s human nature to look for tangible rewards to doing things that we have to do. For example, it feels good to have work done on time, well in advance of deadlines, but we often need some external motivation to actually work ahead on tasks. If your teen has a project that was assigned on September 15 and due on October 1, it’s very natural for him or her to put off thinking about it until September 29. Encourage your teen to come up with self-imposed rewards for meeting milestones on a project. For example, your child can make a deal with him- or herself that if they can get resources assembled by September 18 and an outline done by September 21, they will treat themselves to a trip to the mall, an ice cream date with friends, or something else that they’d enjoy. If your teen tends to procrastinate when it comes to household chores, have them work hard for 30 minutes then take a 5-minute break. A version of this, called the Pomodoro technique, is an effective way to get many different types of tasks done. 3. Help Your Teen Find Accountability It can be hard to get things done when you are the only person vested in the process. Finding an accountability partner can help your teen stay on task. This could be someone in your family, a friend, or even an online group. It’s okay if the partner does not have anything to do with the actual task or tasks that need to be accomplished; just the act of telling someone what you intend to do can help with follow-through. You could be the accountability partner for your teen, but that’s only if you are able to simply acknowledge your teen’s efforts rather than nagging or getting emotionally involved. If you need your teen to clean out the garage, for example, then you are probably not a good accountability partner for that task, because you will get annoyed if it doesn’t get done. Only partner up with your teen on tasks that don’t personally affect you, if possible. 4. Encourage Them to Just Do It Many times, we procrastinate doing things because we think that they will be a big or unpleasant project. Then when we actually do the task at hand, it only takes a few minutes. The problem is when we procrastinate many small items, which leads to an overwhelming to-do list. If your teen is procrastinating about getting something done, encourage him or her to just do it. If they think it will take a long time, set a timer for ten minutes and tell them to work at it diligently for that amount of time. Often, they’ll see how much headway they’ve made during those 10 minutes and will either finish the chore or will agree to do another 10 minutes in a little while. Marla Cilley, better known as the Flylady, is a big fan of setting a timer for two, five, or 15 minutes and just working hard for that amount of time. She helps people overhaul messy homes into homes that they are proud of using this method. Little minutes spent on tasks can really add up and overcome procrastination. 5. Set a Good Example All of these tips can be used by adults, too. If you find that you also struggle with procrastination, it can help your teen if you get your situation under control. Take a look at the above suggestions and choose some that you think might help you avoid procrastination. Share your struggles and your triumphs with your teen, too, because this will give them hope that they, too, can overcome the bad habit of putting things off. 6. Seek Professional Help to Overcome Procrastination If Needed If your teen is not able to overcome procrastination, there could be an underlying issue. Depression and anxiety can both cause someone to put off necessary tasks. So can problems like ADHD. If you suspect that one of these could be an issue for your teen, don’t hesitate to seek help. Start with a Certified Life Coach in your area or his or her primary care physician, who can refer you to a counselor or specialist. Getting the procrastination habit under control now will help your teen throughout the rest of his or her life. Work together to find a solution now, while the stakes aren’t as high as they will be in a decade or two. Look for a Life coach or a therapist if necessary, and let your teen know that this is a common, but treatable, problem to deal with.

  • Benefits of Life Coaching For Students
    I’m going to start off by getting really real about what’s going on for students these days. Life coaching for students can be immeasurably helpful! The more I get into communities and talk with students of all kinds, from middle school to undergrad, to graduate school and beyond, stress and overwhelm seem to be MAJOR themes. The expectations put on students are astronomical... and seemingly only growing. As a student, these are some of the major tasks you’re expected to accomplish and stay on top of: doing homework, studying, attending classes, finding and attending internships (or field work), career/future planning, receive high grades (at all times, in all subjects), have a social life, be involved in extracurricular activities, spend time with family, exercise, eat well, etc. all while figuring out what you really want to do with your life. It’s a lot to handle!! These are just the first few things I could rattle off the top of my head. I know there are NUMEROUS other activities to add to that list. Life coaching for students can feel like the only hour of relief in a whole week! The desire to be successful and to excel in life can feel like a constant competition. Who can get the furthest, the fastest? We’re all living in it! Often times students spend their days running from one activity to the next without having a spare minute to themselves, from the minute they wake up until the minute their head hits the pillow. It’s no wonder that more students are starting to feel burnt out, anxious and stressed at increasingly younger ages. Life can be messy, complicated and challenging. There’s usually no direct route to reach our goals and that can feel really scary! Students are often faced with one task or a obstacle after another and having somewhere to go where you can just be yourself is CRUCIAL. So How Can Students Benefit From Life Coaching? Glad You Asked. Reflection – As I mentioned, students are typically running mindlessly from one activity to the next until one day find themselves falling apart at the seams for seemingly no reason! Having somewhere to go on a regular basis allows for time to slow down and regroup. Time for reflection allows for more intentional choices and actions, which leads to happier life in the long run. Venting – As a society right now, we don’t put enough value on human connection, on saying how we feel out loud and having someone on the other end to truly listen. Many students tend to ruminate and worry so much. Having somewhere to speak about concerns, worries or even successes can make for more relaxation and calm! Find direction – School is a great opportunity to explore different career paths, learn about life and find potential opportunities. However, it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle! Some students find making decisions to be really challenging. Students frequently feel overwhelmed by all of the options available or feel that they’ve tried so many things and still can’t find anything that clicks and really feels right. Coaching allows for exploration and guidance to really figure out what matters most and how to get there! Make a plan – Part of getting to where we want to be is figuring out how to get there. Though things may not always go 100% according to plan, having something to work on and somewhere to get started from can make all the difference in getting you from point A to point B. Take action – Life coaching is an action oriented approach. Having time to process and reflect is extremely valuable but what you do with that information is just as important. Coaching helps you to figure out the concrete details and steps to get where you want to be and then implement those steps to see some progress! Accountability – Ever had an experience where you tell yourself you’re going to do something and then you just never follow through? Maybe it’s waking up on the first alarm or eating well throughout your days. Whatever it may be, holding yourself accountable ain’t always easy! Coaching is a great resource to help you establish those goals and then make SURE you truly follow through with them! Reliability – Coaching is a reliable and consistent source for students to go to whenever they need it! Coaching allows for tons of flexibility and support. You can rest assured that you’ll never have to get stuck on your own. It’s nice to know when big assignments are coming or the stress of the end of a semester feels overwhelming, you have someone to reach out to who really gets it! Course correction – It’s okay to make mistakes, have set backs or weeks where you can’t do everything you had originally intended, but knowing that you have someone to check in with will help you along the way! We can never plan for all the curveballs life throws at us. Learning to be flexible and resilient will help you as a student, and even more so as a human. There is always room for course correction when things go awry. If any of these common challenges are resonating with you, seek some support! You really don’t have to go it alone. Learning helpful skills and tools could be exactly what you need to get on track, without all the stress. Life coaching for students can truly be game changing!

  • 5 Practical Ways to Help Teens Overcome Doubt
    Parents can help children learn to squash self-doubt by uncovering the hidden worries and replacing negatives with positives. Almost everyone confronts periods of self-doubt. What if the other kids don’t like me? What if I can’t remember the spelling words? What if my teacher thinks I’m not smart? In fact, those three questions were all uttered by self-doubting kids who needed my help. Self-doubt, it seems, is part of growing up. Listen and validate. We all need time to vent our frustration, and sometimes that might sound like a string of negatives tied together with a healthy dose of self-doubt. That’s okay. It’s important to listen to your child before you attempt to help. You might think you know what’s really beneath the self-doubt, but your child might have a very different story to tell. Listen to your child and validate his feelings. It’s okay to question our abilities at times; it’s what we do to overcome that feeling that’s important. Uncover the emotions. Negative emotions are closely tied to self-doubt. In fact, a study published in Child Development found that children who suffered from high levels of anxiety and depression were more likely to experience self-doubt. Negative past experiences can also cause self-doubt long after you think the experience is resolved. Ask your child to describe how he feels when self-doubt creeps in. Is he worried that he can’t complete a task? Is he embarrassed that he doesn’t have someone to sit with at lunch? Is he sad that math is hard? When your child unpacks his feelings, he can begin to work through them. Zoom in. More often than not, when kids encounter intense feelings of self-doubt, they are overwhelmed by a task. Instead of focusing on the fact that he already knows how to dribble when joining a basketball team, for example, a child might take in the whole scene (the hoop, the other kids, the passing, the size of the court) and become lost in self-doubt. Teach your child to zoom in on both strengths and weaknesses. Instead of looking through the wide-angle lens and assuming he can’t do something, he can zoom in to assess the positives and negatives and make a plan to overcome the negatives. (For example: I don’t know how to do a layup, but I can ask my coach for help.) Teach realistic self-talk. It’s essential for negative thinkers to learn how to reframe their thoughts by countering negative self-talk with positive self-talk, but it’s also important to be realistic. If we constantly teach kids to challenge their negative thoughts with unrealistic or goal-oriented thoughts (I will get an A on this test!), we aren’t doing them any favors. Have your child make a list of negative statements that run through his mind and then make another list of counter statements that include steps to avoid the negative outcome. Instead of, “I’m terrible at math,” for example, your child might say, “I’m working really hard to understand my math homework.” Teach visualization. Children often report feeling worried or anxious when self-doubt kicks in. It makes sense. Deep breathing and visualization can help. The first step is to teach your child to use deep breathing. I find that many kids equate deep breathing with fast breathing. To teach them, I ask them to visualize blowing up a balloon. Cue your child to bring the imaginary balloon to his mouth, breathe in for a count of four, hold for a count of four and breathe out for four. Once your child has the deep breathing down, teach him to visualize overcoming his source of self-doubt while using deep breathing to calm his worries. Make corrections. Most parents understand the importance of modeling healthy habits, even when it comes to the words we use, but it’s easy to get caught up in negative self-talk without even realizing it. Have you ever caught yourself saying something like, “Oh man, I ruined the sauce—I’m the worst cook”? Our kids take their cues from us. Even when we’re kidding, we need to choose our words carefully. Make corrections to your own negative self-talk to show your kids that even adults need to reframe their thoughts and focus on the positive.
    Teen suicide has been in the media a lot lately. You may have heard about the show "13 Reasons Why" that tells the story of how a teen girl takes her own life after experiencing many traumatic experiences. There are mixed views about the show. Some feel like the show provides a valuable opportunity for discussion about bullying and teen suicide. The teen years are difficult for the teenager and everyone who loves the teenager. We have all been through it and know that it has many challenges. This is why I feel strongly that every adolescent needs a life coach or someone they see weekly or monthly that can teach them skills that will help them deal with the every day challenges they face. This could be a life coach, counselor or therapist as well. I can think of many reasons why a life coach for every child is extremely important. Here are just 13 reasons why teens need a life coach to guide them through their most difficult years: 1. Social Media is overwhelming and causing disconnect from the real world. Teens need to learn how to balance their time and energy between social media and real life. A life coach can assist kids with achieving this balance. 2. State testing pressure is causing anxiety in many children today. The pressure is coming from the schools and sometimes the parents. Our youth needs help with managing the anxiety that comes from this pressure. A life coach teaches helpful tools to help manage this anxiety in order to be more successful in school. 3. Bullying occurs far too often at school, on social media, and sometimes even at home. It is rare for a child to never experience being bullied by the time they graduate high school. A life coach can teach skills to kids to help them handle the bullying and even prevent bullying from occurring. Kids also need these skills to help them realize when they are being the bully and how not to get in that situation. Most schools have an anti-bullying program in place, but in my experience as a middle school teacher, the students do not take the lessons seriously and the program can sometimes give new opportunities for bullying to occur. 4. Divorce is a norm for most kids these days, but it doesn't make it less destructive for a child. Many kids have false beliefs that they are the cause of the divorce. It's more emotional for the child than the parents. A life coach can help the child find emotional resilience and manage the big change that has occurred before the pain manifests into behavior problems, depression, and anxiety. 5. Peer Pressure is always present. Even as adults we experience this type of pressure. A teenager needs to learn how to follow their own personal inner compass and to love and take pride in who they are and the decisions they make for themselves. This is a skill the teen will definitely benefit from all through life and a life coach can help the teen develop this important skill of self-love. 6. Sexual abuse is more common than one might think. According to the center for disease control, teenagers account for 51% of all reported sexual abuse and female victims of teen sexual abuse while in grades 9 through 12 are more likely than others to experience eating disorders, suicidal behavior, pregnancy and risky sexual behaviors. Giving a child the gift of consistent life coaching can help a child stray away from situations where sexual abuse could occur. 7. The culture of alcohol drinking during the teen years has become the norm and not taken seriously. According to a study done at George Mason University this culture of alcohol drinking can lead to higher rates of teen sex, teen pregnancy, date rape, violence, and illegal activity. Many teens believe it is not a big deal to drink alcohol, because everyone does it, even their parents. Alcohol becomes a remedy for stress and anxiety for teens. A life coach can help teens with techniques to deal with anxiety, depression and peer pressure in order to keep the teen from getting involved in the culture of alcohol drinking. 8. The brain of a teen is still maturing. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain where emotional control, impulse restraint and rational decision-making take place. According to Dr. David Walsh, this part of the brain does not fully mature until around the age of 25 and this is why many teenagers do not practice "good judgment" in difficult situations. You can read more about the adolescent brain in Dr. Walsh's book, "Why Do They Act That Way?" 9. Adolescents do not like to talk to their parents. I'm sure you remember being a teenager and not wanting to tell your parents about the fight you had with your friends at school that day or the low grade you made on a test. During the adolescent years, kids withdrawal from parents and spend more time alone or with friends. Dr. Lisa Damour calls this time period the psychological equivalent of riding a bike with training wheels. Teenagers are preparing to strike out on their own and are wanting to talk to friends more than their parents. Teens need to talk to someone with a mature frontal cortex who can help guide them to good decision making and this could be a life coach, mentor, aunt, counselor or family friend. 10. Friend drama can cause many ups and downs for an adolescent. One day your teen is best friends with someone and the next day she is not. Hateful things can be said to each other and rumors can be spread. This can lead to bullying and depression. An adolescent needs to have a mentor to show them the bigger picture, when it comes to friends switching back and forth from best friends to enemies. A life coach can help guide a teen to use their inner compass in making good decisions when it comes to who should be a friend and who should not. 11. The decision of what to do after high school is a huge stress factor for juniors and seniors. This is more the case in competitive environments. "What University did you get into?" can be a loaded question for many teens that feel like they have to get into a good school or they won't be accepted by their peers or their parents will not be happy. Teens feel the pressure to know what they want to do as a career as early a 9th grade. They get confused from all of the pressure from parents, friends, and media. A life coach can help teens listen to their inner knowing of what they desire to do in life. 12. The feeling of isolation happens to most teens. Teens are becoming more independent and trying to figure out what their purpose in life is, who their friends are, and what they are good at. As they are learning more about themselves they may have moments of feeling left out or like they are different than everyone else. A life coach can help a teen understand that we are all connected and here for different reasons. Teens are wondering what their purpose is and a life coach can help guide them in the right direction. 13. A popular show like "13 Reasons Why" can have great influence on a teen that is experiencing bullying, pressure, and/or abuse. Suicide contagion is real. The show can inspire a teen that is going through similar experiences as Hannah Baker did. Teens can be coached to know that suicide is not an option. Provide your teen with someone to talk to on a consistent basis. A life coach will teach important, life-saving tools that will help teens gain a healthy mind in order to live a happy and successful life with meaning and purpose.

Why I choose to become a certified life coach for teens.

If you’re new, I’m Williamson

Husband and Father of 4, Youth ambassador, certified Life Coach, more specifically a Personal Growth and Success Coach, with global ambition to empower the young generation through proper coaching.

In 2010 Haiti earthquake, I was buried under a three-story building after it collapsed. For twenty-eight grueling hours, I was trapped without food or water, breathing in stale air. I knew I would rise again and become who I was destined to be. I made a sincere promise with God that I will serve him if he saves me.

Rather than blame others for my circumstances or live the victim life, I chose to be a force for good through my story of survival and to find ways to serve God. I didn’t come from money, my dad worked as an accountant for a national hospital and my mom was a supervisor at the same company, in partnership with Red Cross. I moved from Haiti to Utah on my own. I went to BYU-Idaho, LDS Business College, and Utah State University but got a little lucky to meet amazing mentors and a lot of grind that led me to invest in my first rental property, build a tree/landscaping company, founded my nonprofit organization, then I get into coaching and quickly I realized that was my path to becoming who I was born to be.

So I started coaching/mentoring young people worldwide to change their mindset, create their life, and impact their community.

I made it my mission to empower the young generation to RISE and become who they were created to be. Because they have so much to offer to this world today.
