Uplifting Lynda Field Quotes to Encourage you to Bring Out Your Best!
Our beloved friend Lynda Field peacefully passed away in her sleep on August 30th, 2020. She was a leading life coach and self-esteem expert as well as an author of 17 books which continues to provide support and encouragement to all who read them. In this post, I will share 52 Lynda Field Quotes to share her words of encouragement as well as how she impacted my life.
Lynda Field: My Life Coach and Mentor
I came across Lynda Field, a confidence coach from London, in my suggested friends section on Facebook. At the time, she had over a million followers on Facebook and had written 17 books. Besides being a life coach of 30+ years, she was also a speaker, counselor, and therapist. Needless to say, I was impressed with her ambition and booked a session with her right away.
Lynda Field was my first ever life coach, and I didn’t know what to expect. I assumed a Life coach would be doing most of the talking and sharing their life experiences, advice and wisdom. Much to my surprise, this was not the case.
She asked me deep questions that would challenge me to look at things from a different perspective. She made me feel deeply listened to and understood. She was genuine, open, and honest which led me to trust her and feel safe to share all my thoughts. As time passed our sessions grew to be even more meaningful.
I was at a time of my life where I was trying new things and lacking in self-esteem, and I was very sensitive to judgment. But not once did I feel that she was somehow judging me or shaming me. She would help me to develop a growth mindset by encouraging me to talk to myself as a friend. She would also catch me when I was being hard on myself, which would set an example for me as well.
I started to notice a pattern. That whenever I would ask for advice, more often than not, she would turn it back to me, challenging me to come up with my own solution. She would then encourage me and support my decisions like my personal cheerleader.
It was through this back-and-forth exchange and holistic approach in her coaching that I was growing in self-awareness and self-confidence. I started trusting my intuition and decisions. It felt as if I was for once taking the wheel of my own life.
Not only did I feel better after each session, but I felt like there was rapid growth happening between the sessions as well. I would always walk away with new insights and she would leave me with an action step to work on in between our sessions.
The last session we had together was on the 28th of August. I remember ending the call by sharing an experience I had earlier that week.
I was sitting in my backyard when I watched the most magnificent sunset. The sky was bursting with a symphony of colors from florescent oranges, pinks, violets, and reds that lit up the entire sky. The sun’s magnificent rays leaked between the layers of clouds adding to its beauty. However, the most spectacular part was that it was all changing so rapidly. It was as if God had a dimmer switch and was adjusting the colors in real-time. The sight was so spectacular and awe-inspiring that it felt like I was witnessing a miracle. This went on for a good 15 minutes and I was just paralyzed by its beauty. It felt to me like heaven and earth were meeting.
Lynda awed and thanked me for sharing my miracle story with her and we said our goodbyes and ended the call.
A few days later, a post came up on Lynda Fields Facebook feed.
She had passed away just two days after our last call together.
I miss Lynda so much. I wish she was still here to guide me when I struggle with my decisions. To support me when I am feeling lost. To encourage me as I try new things. And to comfort me when I am feeling down.
She was the most genuine and kindhearted soul. I thank God for allowing me to have her in my life and I know that she is in heaven taken in all of its beauty and splendor.
To celebrate Lynda Fields Incredible Life, I’ve selected 37 of my favorite encouraging quotes from a few of her books.
