Jonathan Elliott - Life Coach

Meet Jonathan Elliott

I feel lucky to have arrived at a place where I feel comfortable in my own skin, but in truth, luck had little to do with it. It’s been a journey – from my birth and placement in a Catholic orphanage for the first 18 months of my life, to my adoption – to the search that began in 1997 for my biological family and answers to questions around identity that had long haunted me – to the present day – always growing, always restless, always questioning.

In 1979, with a degree in Business Management and a year in law school, I ran away to sea, signing on with Treasure Salvors Inc., Key West FL, as a diver and crew member on an expedition to locate two 17th century Spanish treasure galleons lost in a violent hurricane off the Florida Keys in September 1622 while en route back to Spain from Havana Cuba. During the summer of 1985, the galleons were located after a long and costly search.

Of all the treasure discovered, the most valuable by far to me was learning who I was and what I was made of in the face of great hardship. I came to know my own soul and what was really important.

My path to life coaching began as a way to align what my life experience and gifts were with the realized obligation to share them to the betterment of others. Life coaching has proven to be one of the best ways to show up for others.

The journey of self discovery is always an adventure, and it almost never goes the way we think it will, or should. The best clients, and the ones who make the most progress, come to the adventure of life coaching with courage, openness, curiosity, motivation, the capacity for self-reflection, and a sense of humor. These things, together with “Ninja” level listening and questioning, create a clearly charted path toward resolution of the things that keep my clients awake at night.

It has been, and continues to be, an honor to co-create life altering transformation for my clients.

The following are some of the issues commonly resolved by my coaching clients in our work together:

Engaging in difficult conversations.
Giving yourself permission to dream (bigger).
Listening to your own intuition.
Staying hopeful or engaged.
Self acceptance or judgement.
Being alone with yourself.
Going toward joy and happiness.
Overcoming limiting beliefs.
Feeling comfortable in your own skin.
Being seen.
Managing anger
Trusting yourself or others.
Recognizing your own creativity.
Setting healthy boundaries.
Knowing your own value.
Creating work/life balance.
Finding motivation.
Finding forgiveness.

We are all works in progress, but to make progress takes work. Coaching represents a substantial investment in time, money, and energy. If you need a strategic partner to help you find your “treasure”, we should talk. You don’t have to go it alone. Reach out today. You’ll wonder why you waited so long.

““I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”. Nelson Mandela
