Life Coaching with Leonie

Leonie du Preez

I have been coaching for more than 15 years and the greatest reward of coaching a person is when they challenge themselves. 

Why, you ask? 

The reason is we all want to belong and we all want to achieve something. 

The smallest change brings a great difference.  

We had the opportunity to enjoy my parent’s 70th birthday at a beautiful resort in Mauritius. What an amazing place. One day, I was sitting on the beach with the calm ocean in front of me (there aren’t any waves).

The island’s greatest income is from Tourism and there are many big ships entering the harbour. What stood out was the way the big ships moved with only a rudder which operates mechanically. 

{Big ships have massive rudders which are turned using hydraulic or Electro-hydraulic power.}

The beauty of life is you can create and steer your own future with a small rudder. 

That “rudder” is your tongue. What are the words that you use for your marriage, children, business and future?  

These words steer the course.


James 3:4-5 And look at the ships. Even though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines. 5 In the same sense, the 

tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. 

GRO Challenge… 

Use 5 words that can steer your own life into a new and fresh perspective.  

Loved, healthy, peaceful, generous and enough (just sharing my 5 words)!
