Shares from the Game Card
My client just called me a coaching “God”. Let me explain (ha!). We had an Inner Freedom experience focused on his tendency to reject business deals prematurely to not waste time. We found some very powerful pattern language he was using. And when the switch flipped — he went from “I’ll do whatever it takes to survive” to “I know I have it in me to do whatever it takes to SUCCEED, that’s just who I am, that’s how I roll”
.. and he just kept looping that pattern language over and over.. you can hear the difference in his tone. Prior to the session he was very intellectual and mind-driven, self-admittedly disconnected from his body and feelings and he came out of the session feeling INTEGRATED and ALIVE.. he was tickled that he could feel the hairs on the back of his neck stand up as he kept with this PLAY BIG intention + new pattern language.
“My player told me today she will never forget the fantastic relief she felt when we did the Inner Freedom Method – that was one of the first sessions with her and it was not complex at all. She said it helps her in her job every week. When she gets a “small nervous attack” she does a light version for herself! Isn’t this great… Inner Freedom Coaching is creating sustainable self growth. I am still astounded about this method.”
Another Player told me: “I feel so relieved after this Inner Freedom session and much more calm to attend a big meeting next week”.
The BIG Picture
Humans are emerging from the Industrial Age of Work into the Connected Age of Play.
More and more of us are yearning to live more fully; to experience and express our uniqueness AND our connectedness. To do this, we MUST be highly aware of and leverage ALL aspects of the Human Experience: including purpose, desires, emotions and fear.
Together we must embrace the truth that playing life INCLUDES challenges and hardships that give us opportunities to grow more fully into ourselves and connect more deeply with others. We have a choice in how we play the moments of our lives. To be a coach in the world means living, loving and teaching these truths.
You can PLAY with fear
The FEAR we are talking about, when it comes to living our dreams, is “Social Fear”; this fear is deeply embedded in our BEING. It is the fear of NOT BELONGING to the “tribe”. For most of human history, not belonging to the tribe meant certain death… hence the fear!
Here is the key: ALL SOCIAL FEAR IS LEARNED!
Fear is a natural consequence of playing big in your life. It is not to be ignored or overcome. It needs to be EMBRACED. You can learn a lot from your fears and when you do you are free to play as big as your life’s DREAMS and PURPOSE will take you.
Since you learned each fear, you can also learn to PLAY with the fear!
What this means in practical terms is that you are FREE to act powerfully in the moment in a way that is creative, resilient and resourceful. You are fluid and able to take the risks needed to get MUCH better results, more often with less struggle. This is what we want for our players – and for ourselves!
Make Your Mind Your Ally
Coaching Question = How is your survival mind trying to protect you?
“It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well.”
– Rene Descartes
Industrial Age = We are living in an un-natural state!! In a box in isolation doing routine tasks.
Connected Age = We can use our Superpowers to create value AND choose a new form of happiness
“Play Safe” Body Belief: “It is not safe for me to trust my heart’s desires.”
BIG IDEA: There is no such thing as self-sabotage!!
Playing safe is all about Self Preservation; but self-preservation is NOT about happiness.
Expand Your Inner Freedom
“Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.”
– Paulo Coelho
Coaching Question: What you are feeling in your body right now?
Play Safe” Body Belief: It is not safe to trust what I am feeling.
When I started coaching… When one of my players didn’t do something they said they were going to do.. I went into all kinds of Shenanigans!!! Accountability – Motivation – Positive thinking – Even Guilt (I am begging you)
Context: Industrial Age of Work = Eliminate Fear from life; Except the fear of doing something wrong; keep everything in control; creativity; expression; Logic – THINKING oriented;
Connected Age of Play = Every moment on the playground of life is both RISK and Reward.
A player called me today to tell me how much I have changed her life and how much freer she feels to take the actions that used to scare her so much. This is somebody that I was hesitant with at first to use the inner freedom method. We couldn’t have done it without this method.
I have learned that Playing outside of the comfort zone means that I will not know what will happen, I will not have a familiar pattern to refer to and I will most likely feel “a little bit of fear”. I will feel this buzzing energy in my body. I will also feel amazing, alive and exhilarated by playing outside of my comfort zone.
I coached a player who recently started his 3rd season with me. With him, I often use the Inner Freedom Method because he is an overachiever. So often he is not playing at ease, but rather powering through things though he’s been a very successful business owner for over a decade.
This time, he found himself in the same situation where he realized that’s been repeating. He can’t say “no” to his clients for things that are not included in the contracts and this puts him in a tough position because every time he says “yes” to them, he sets their expectations higher and higher.
We did dig deep with the method. He felt a very heavy gray concrete-like sensation in his shoulders and arms. He felt the same sensation for the first time in life when his dad said to him: “you cannot do even such an easy task?” while he was cooking or doing something for his dad. He was about 8 years old.
Since then, he didn’t want to disappoint anyone and he can’t let people down. This connected the dots between what’s been happening now in his adult life and his childhood memory. We saw some benefits and positive effects on both sides for him and his clients when he says “no”. He realized that what he needs to do is have creative reality-check conversations with his clients. I challenged him to come up with some symbol to represent this. Awesome session!
The BIG Question:
How BIG do you CHOOSE to play in this amazing life of yours?
With Inner Freedom it is truly your choice!
Your story as a Coach…
Are you ready for a dramatic boost in your coaching confidence?
When you coach your player to play big in the outside world their “Inner World” will put up a LOT of resistance. Nearly every decision we make in social situations is instantaneously determined by patterns of feeling in the non-conscious mind; what to say, NOT say, what to do, must NEVER do. When we start playing big, we often notice how restricted we feel; and it’s frustrating for both the player AND the coach.
This is your opportunity for coach-able moments of transformation that lead to results…
From: Motivate your player to power through their fear and control their emotions.
To: Teach your player to play with fear and explore their emotions.
When you bring the Inner Freedom Method to your coaching conversations your players will be amazed at the awareness that comes into focus. And they will be thrilled when freedom and RESULTS replace frustration! You will be a coaching hero! (always fun)
Players with dreams = Bigger fees (if you are into that!)
With the Inner Freedom Method you will be able to
coach the biggest players in the most challenging and high impact opportunities.
When the word gets out about what you can do, you will be in high demand with the best players in your community.
As a coach, this is EXACTLY who you want to be. This can lead to bigger coaching fees if you are into that.
AND… YOU will have the Inner Freedom that you need to FEEL worthy of higher fees.
(HAH! yes, it all comes together)

Clint Bolden, San Francisco, CA; Retired School Administrator
Playing outside the zone means that you get to play with the fear that holds people back from discovering their greatness. You are fearless and nothing can stop you from producing the desired results in your life. Most of all, you learn to depend on your body wisdom for guidance and direction. You are in a state of mind were you are unstoppable because fear has no power over you.
Nina Mioen, Texas USA; Professional Coach
“Wow! This is exactly what I have been waiting for! Dave’s talk about most coaching sessions being weak really hit me. It was me yesterday. The frustration I felt when I coached this lady, the feeling of not getting anywhere. I need to get into the critical moment with her. I makes so much sense and feels great to have a technique to use to ‘feel what it feels like in the moment’. I believe in it completely; it is when we are in the moment that the breakthrough can happen. This is really BIG!”
Erica Becker, San Diego CA; Corporate Coach
I took my player through the Inner Freedom Method and she had a memory pop of a very early traumatic occurrence. She said that she hadn’t thought it was still an issue but it is what kept coming up so she allowed herself to be uncomfortable and feel it. It was a huge breakthrough for her and has since allowed her to be aware that it was holding her back from her relationships with others.
Inner Freedom is resistance free – being in the flow of life. Attracting and manifesting what I want and easily.
At peace within; Staying true to my own thoughts and actions.
Jose Diaz de Villegas, San Juan Puerto Rico; Magazine Editor
My player and I had a very intense Inner Freedom session, during which a powerful memory came up. She said, “I’m starting to see pictures from my childhood, starting to get closer to what is really stopping me.” She had greater awareness of how what happened then is connected to what she wants to do now. She saw that now as an adult she has choices.
I find deep Inner Freedom sessions really help us expand our ability to “Respect the client’s humanity.”
Jannicke Berns, Stockholm Sweden; Professional Coach
My experience of the Inner Freedom Method:
…absence of fear and courage to act in the moment.
….being in the flow and knowing what to do or not do.
…awareness and integration of feelings, thoughts and emotion (body wisdom)
….feeling that my energy flows freely to the results I want.
Eytan Nicholson, Boston MA; Song writer & Musician
There is a list of things I’d love to do in my life but can always find a great reason why not to try them. Playing outside of my comfort zone will be not judging things in advance, rather attempting them with full force and then reflecting later.
Inner freedom means to me that I should be able to approach and attempt any idea or challenge with an ability to CHOOSE not only what I’m comfortable with but also what it means to me.
I can choose my opinions and actions over survival instinct.
Meet Player Lauri
As part of the Inner Freedom Method Coaching class you will “listen in” on 12 life-changing coaching conversations between Coach Dave and Player Lauri of StepIntoGreat.com
When these sessions began, Lauri was as aspiring author and business leader. She had a plan to write, create a local networking group and build a thriving business. There was only one problem (well 3 problems) … She wasn’t writing and she wasn’t talking to anyone about her business and she wasn’t signing any clients. This is where the story begins and you will be amazed at how it unfolds. You will often see yourself in her story as she expands her Inner Freedom; You will also benefit from the power of “osmosis coaching”.
