Celebration of Creation Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Coaching

Reborn in Christ


“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17


Quiet contemplation,

Meditation in the morn,

Savoring Your presence,

In You I am reborn.


Rays of sunlight

Glimmer through the trees,

Whispers of eternity

Dance on the leaves.


In these morning hours

I hear and see You;

Here in the dawn

My spirit You renew.


So as the sun rises,

As the day does unfold,

As the sun rays melt away

The dark night cold,


I offer myself to You

My Jesus, in all things;

I offer You my heart,

As for You it ever sings.


Fill me with Your Spirit,

This day and every day;

Show to me Your will,

Lead me on Your way.


As the faithful sun

Does every morning rise,

You I faithfully follow,

You are my portion and prize.


As the warmth of the sun

Brings life to the earth,

I embrace Your sweet love,

Love bringing rebirth.


As the still morning

Leads to bright noonday,

I follow Your light, Lord,

For You are the Way.


As rays of sunlight

Glimmer through each tree,

You whisper of eternity

To delight and comfort me.


Yes, rebirth I see now,

As the sun shines in the morn;

So too in Your heart, Jesus,

I am eternally reborn.

[Launching Tuesday] Break the Broken Record

Break the Broken Record!

Rob Clinton and I are thrilled that the Break the Broken Record group coaching program launches Tuesday, March 5th!

We had a fun and fruitful time in our three-part Teleseminar series, and we look forward to working with you to “Break the Broken Record” once and for all this year!

Continue reading to learn more and / or register for this powerful program!


How can I make this My Best Year?

Keep reading if you’re ready for change…

If you’re ready to finally live a year that you can look back on and say,

“WOW! That year was awesome!”


A Personal Message from the Break the Broken Record Crew:

This is Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway and Rob Clinton of 180 Career Coaching! To complement our recent Teleseminar series on Breaking the Broken record we have scheduled a group coaching class. We discovered this was a necessary step, as people want to make their goals happen and watch their dreams come to life!

We finalized everything, and we have the tools and the process to help you succeed and get you to where you want to be.

You will be coached by two experienced professionals who empathize completely with you — as we have been stuck where you are at right now. We encourage you, as we have a way to pull you out and to start making things happen!

People may ask, “Can I really live a fulfilling life and career and still make great money?” Yes: without a shadow of doubt, you can.

We tend to live life in a vacuum, consuming the resources of life without any intention of how to use them to grow, to improve or to move forward.

By paying attention to that which we surround ourselves – such as people, books, places, events, and ideas – everything unfolds accordingly. At this point, our goals no longer seem far from reach; at this point we know how to leverage the things that will propel us forward. These things are closer within our grasps than most of us realize!

There is tremendous power in leverage, in relationships, in deciding what you want, in creating the game plan and in taking action.

Master these, and you open the doors…WIDE OPEN! You find a phenomenal playground of opportunity when you pay attention to those basic principles and actually live your dreams. In choosing to own your path, you create your path.

Now is the time to break the broken record. Now is the time to let go of living the dreams of others and to start living authentically.

Now is the time to own our paths, come alive and make things happen!

How many of these things are already true for you?

  • You are tired of your job and want new direction.
  • Something unexpected has happened, such being laid off, and you want to use this time to create real purpose in your new career.
  • You are seeking more meaning and fulfillment in the work you do.
  • You are fed up with living paycheck to paycheck, and you are ready to build a life without ceilings.
  • You feel trapped by worldly expectations and know there has got to be more.
  • You are ready to live out your dreams, visions, purpose and calling.
  • You are ready to begin living passionately.
  • You are ready to take life to the next level through your personal purpose and calling.
  • You are driven for change and really want to make this next season matter.

  • You have found a sudden and unwelcomed change in your life.
  • You desire a deeper spiritual truth in all roles you live out.
  • You want to live intelligently, expand your skills, knowledge, resources, and wisdom.
  • Circumstances have a created an unfamiliar area for you, and you are ready to get clear on your next steps.
  • You seek more confidence and passion in what you do.
  • You seek a more vibrant and healthier lifestyle
  • You desire deeper and meaningful relationships, a better sense of community and a stronger service attitude to live your vocation.

If you answered YES by checking any one of these situations, then keep reading! All it takes is just ONE of these to throw you off balance, and all it takes is one decision to push everything back on course and make this the best year ever!

Let us help you create real Goals and a Pathway to these Goals…leading forward to the best year of your life!


Question you might ask, “Does Goal Setting Actually Work?”

The 2 biggest things that people fear before setting goals are:

1. They fear that they will not complete their goals.

Much of the fear from setting goals comes from the emptiness of not completing them before. Sometimes goals are compared to New Years resolutions, yet these are two different things. Resolutions are a hope that something can happen, and they come with a pre-completion celebration. We tend to celebrate resolutions and feel a sense of accomplishment and affirmation before setting out to complete the resolutions.

A goal, on the other hand, is not just hope. It is a knowing, with objectives, the measurable benchmarks of success as well as a solid timeline. It is specific, it knows where it is going, and it will get there so it can celebrate upon achievement.

Resolutions gratify the moment while goals are delayed gratification and thus will actually bring you higher chances of winning.

2. They feel trapped by goals, as though it limits their freedom.

One of the biggest myths is that goals will trap us into not experiencing life to the fullest. This is a mistaken paradigm. Goals do not trap; on the contrary, they create freedom. They allow us move freely toward the tomorrow we desire. A goal is only a trap when it is someone else’s and not our own.


“Well that’s nice…but how does this put money in my pocket?”

This is where much of the planning takes place! By knowing what you want, knowing what you do well, and knowing how others hunger for what you do, we create an economic model that supports what you do well.

It doe not make sense to go after a career that will not earn you any dollars. The economic structure is developed in the planning process.

We will build the economic system that best fits you and your endeavor so you can be free to live and do what you love!

____________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________ ____________________________

Interested? Well, we want to help you!

Investing in our personal growth is an important step to success. What are you willing to do to get to where you want to be? Do you know where you want to be? Do you know how to get there? If so, what is stopping you?

You have the power to decide if you truly desire it and how far are you willing to go to achieve it! If you made a small investment in your personal growth to become a better achiever, in order to help set you on a path to increase your income this year by even $5,000, maybe $10,000, just ask yourself, “Is that worth it?”

Now really think about that question. This could be the most important decision that you ever make!

Before you go out and exchange your life for a paycheck in just another JOB or give up a lot of your time, energy, and money on your next degree, let’s first come together and create an actual Plan of Action. This Plan will be meaningful and will lead you to true fulfillment…and to freedom!

So, yes, it IS time to Break the Broken Record! It’s time to come alive and let the world recognize the blessings you share and the blessing you are!

Here’s what we cover…

We will walk hand-in-hand through a three-part series of Self-Discovery, Strategic Planning and Implementation. We will discover your purpose, develop a vision, and put a simplified detailed action plan in place that we can launch. Below are brief descriptions of the three stages.

  • Stage 1: Inventory, Visioning, & Goal Setting – Here we will identify your strengths, talents, values, dreams, passions, personality tendencies; we will feed those into your life goals. Your life and career goals are discovered by understanding YOU first. Your career path is a reflection of the life that you want to live. Once we know you, your attributes, your primary place in this world and what you desire in life, we will uncover your career goals and begin to prime those specifically.
  • Stage 2: Strategic Break Down – Once we have vision, we create objectives, goals, and identifiable benchmarks. This is a simplifying process in which we make even the most impossible ideal something that is tangible. Objectives turn into specific strategies of attainments, and those strategies will turn into goals that we can target from a much more realistic perspective.
  • Stage 3: Implementation & Accountability – Once we have a plan, we will launch the plan and gather resources along the way. You can use the discussion forum and your group for accountability throughout the process as well as your individual coaching session. This is your plan and, whether individually or through the group, we are going to help you. We will make sure you get the resources that you need to help you succeed! From your strengths down to the deepest core of who you are, after identifying what success is to you, we create a simple but direct career/business implementation plan that we will launch. We will identify your vision, identified objectives, key strategies and specific attainable goals and then launch YOUR plan!
