My Story

My Story

I am Dr. Jan

There was a time not too long ago when I was afraid of my own light.  I took a chance to dream big and became a doctor. I had invested and sacrificed so much time, money, my heart and soul, relationships and the return didn’t match the investment.  The culture was no longer feeding my soul, but at the time I didn’t know what it was, so I took a step back out of the light and into the shadow because I thought I had failed.   So I grieved the past – what could have been, what was supposed to be the medical career of a lifetime, a dream unfulfilled, so I thought. 

Hi, I’m Coach Dr. Jan.  I’ve spent years confused on who I could become, desiring to create a life that was unrecognizable, not quite knowing how to get out of the shadow and back into my own brilliance.  And then I spent a lot of time getting clear on my goals, clear on my strategies and next steps.  I’m grateful that I was able to find my own light and reignite my own fire in a way that was truly authentic to me.  And now I get to help others, like yourself, transform their lives by renewing their minds.  Welcome to Optimal Vitality MD Coaching!

We have a tendency to step out of the light and into the shadows when the ROI isn’t what we expected.  We discredit our own worth, confusing our self-worth with self-esteem.  Or perhaps because we took the chance to dream and it didn’t work out, we’ve now become our own worst critic and place ourselves further into the shadow, eventually to dim our light to a flicker.

Has there ever been a time in your life when you’ve invested your all into some big goal or dream only to have it not turn out like you wanted or not at all?  And the only thing you could think to do to protect yourself from the guilt or shame of it all was to dim your light?

The author, Brian Pilsifier, eloquently wrote, “Life is full of challenges but it is how you interpret and use challenges to better yourself, to view challenges as opportunities for personal and professional growth, and to utilize your learning experiences to assist others to accomplish more, and to lead a much richer and wholesome life.”

I carry that vision for myself each day as I get to redefine myself as Dr. Jan with intentionality.  When you grow intentionally, you maximize the best in yourself.  While you must make the first step, you do not have to do it alone.  As your coach, I will help you take this new information and apply it to many areas of your life.  The world is going to be a better place because of a better you.  Let’s allow all the brilliance of who you are to shine!
