You are the artist of your own life. Don’t hand the paintbrush to anyone else.”
Iva Ursano.

Are we destined or governed by free will? This is a challenging question to answer. Yet, there are several answers to this question. One of them claims that we always have to face the consequences of what we do with our gifts (destiny). And it is up to us to use them or not (free will). A gift guide can help you find your inner gifts. And then you can benefit from a strategic coach to unwrap your gifts. Why is this so important?

Although it is not a must, a strategic coach can ease your process of connecting with your inner gifts. What’s the deal with it? Once you discover your gift, there is a chance to work on it, and share it with the world. With that deep connection, you will find meaning in your life.

A strategic coach to find your vision

When you go to the dictionary and look for the word vision, you will see several definitions. For instance, let’s use the first two entries the Merriam-Webster dictionary shows:

  1. the ability to see: sight or eyesight
  2. something that you imagine: a picture that you see in your mind

Based on what we see, we can envision a situation that’s only happening within our minds. It doesn’t have to be something we are seeing right now, but something that comes from our experience. In other words, you can picture your reality using other senses such as touch, hearing, taste, smell.

For that vision to serve as a guiding light in our journey, it should have roots in something meaningful to us, that is, an answer to the question: why are we here? And that only arises when we get a deep connection with our gifts. For that process to happen, you can use a gift guide. In short, it goes like this:

Going within

At this stage, the gift coach would ask you key questions. This way, you can connect with your inner self. By doing this introspection, you become your guide, your teacher. That is, you come to realize what your gifts are. At this point, you have discovered what your purpose in life is.

Creating with your gift

Discovering your gifts is just the beginning of your journey. From within your heart, you will feel like doing something with them. The channel you use can come in the form of words, movements, or transforming raw materials into something else. In this stage, your gifts come to life, to reality, ready to be shared. 


At this moment, the whole point of connecting with your gifts makes sense. It is not like you will share your gifts because you ought to do it. It’s more about self-expression and giving meaning to your life while impacting others’.

Additional notes

Keep in mind that every journey is unique. In that sense, it may happen that:

  • You need support finding your gifts.
  • You are in touch with your gifts, and you want guidance on how to use them.
  • You may be looking for the courage to share your gifts.

Every gift needs a lifestyle to be expressed. Sometimes, it can be hard to find the right moment. Even making some changes in your life can be challenging. This is when a gift strategist becomes key. 

A strategic coach can guide you into unwrapping your gifts. That is, connecting with your inner resources to make all the necessary adjustments to bring your gifts into life. Otherwise, your gifts will be like a box on a shelf: unopened, unexplored.

A strategic coach to unwrap your gifts

As soon as you have discovered your gifts (you can do so by using Your Gift Journey), it’s time to unwrap them. As we mentioned before, connecting with our gifts will help us find our why. This, in turn, will give us ground for our vision.

Once there, we can follow up with the Transformative Power program. You can make a living out of your gifts. Of course, you will have to make some adjustments in your life to give space to your gifts to bring them to life. You can do so without giving up any part of your actual life.

Instead, the strategic coach will help you find a way to harmonize the key parts of your life with any activity you choose to give form to your gifts. Indeed, you can benefit from understanding how the 5 Transformative Power Pillars help you share your gifts with the world. These pillars are:

  • Vision
  • Voice
  • Visibility
  • Village
  • Victory

This way, you can express yourself by creating something meaningful, with a strong and powerful message. That’s what unwrapping your gifts means, that’s how you use your paintbrush to paint your own life. The strategic coach is only there to support your journey, to guide your gifts.
