Note from Life Coach Mary:
Laura Berman Fortgang was at my first International Coach Federation Conference back in 1998, when I was just thinking about becoming a coach. Seeing her speak and getting an autographed copy of her book were catalysts to my future as a coach. Since then, Laura has gone on to author 5 best-selling books available in 11 languages. She was the FIRST coach to appear on Oprah. She’s a contributing editor for Redbook Magazine and frequently appears in major print and digital media. She is truly a pioneer and leader within the field of coaching, and has reached millions of people. In early February, she graciously agreed to be a guest expert for one of my private coaching groups. As she shared highlights from her latest book “The Prosperity Plan” I knew I had to bring this wisdom to my entire community through my Conversations with the Masters series. Please join me on Thursday, March 10th at 10am PT/1pm ET.

The Call For A New Currency
by Laura Berman Fortgang
There is a huge shift happening in the evolution of human consciousness. Are you feeling it? Is your world changing without your permission? Have you been forced to reinvent your work or give up things in your life you once held dear?
Here is the good news: as frightening as it can be when things swing out of our control, it is in precisely in times like these that we begin to pay attention—and a dramatic shift in consciousness becomes possible. However, the choice to remain conscious is entirely up to you. You could also just hide and go back to sleep.
Whether this is showing up as desperation or something surging within you, one thing is certain: global economic changes are forcing us to embrace a new way of building our lives and financial security. The old ways “guaranteed” by hard work, fitting in, and loyalty are no longer enough to ensure your career and give peace of mind about the future. We need a new currency that requires a rewiring of our minds and of our beliefs about how prosperity works.
The work I have done for almost twenty years as a pioneer in the personal coaching field has been grounded in the belief that, as John Naisbitt, futurist and author of Megatrends and Megatrends 2000, put it, “the most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century will not occur because of technology but because of an expanding concept of what it means to be human.” I interpret that to mean that our awareness of the spiritual nature of our being will become the currency of our future success. By subduing that aspect of ourselves despite all that we accomplished in the twentieth century, we inflicted unintended damage on our planet, our health, and other beings. We have seen our ever-expanding progress and prosperity begin to contract and many of our systems fall apart. All we have done so far no longer seems to be working, so it is time to heed the call.
What are your expectations right now? Are you fearful and worried? Are you concerned that the changes in the world preclude ever feeling on top of your game again? Are you resisting what is going on in your life? If you are living in this currency of fear, you are putting your feet in a tub of wet cement and letting it harden into a solid block. Your movements and your ability to change will be limited.
However, by creating the circumstances by which great luck canfind you, you will experience prosperity and opportunity that seems magical in quality. To succeed, a fundamental change is required of you. You will need to recalibrate your energy and vibration level. Keeping that going means staying conscious. It will mean doing battle with your subconscious and it will mean anchoring yourself in the better half of your thinking. When fear, doubt, or your critical voice try to intervene, you’ll have to send them out to pasture. To beat the odds and attain the level of wealth and happiness you have always dreamed of, you will have to switch out your currency.You’ll have to “play to win.” You’ll have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
