Do you find yourself feeling anxious on Sunday afternoons in anticipation of Monday? Is your to-do list impossible to do? Do you find it difficult to switch your mind off your work and be in the moment?
If you are often operating from a place of frustration or impatience and it affects your personal and professional relationships, you are in the right place.
I’m Carmen Payne, the owner and creator of SOAR! Transformational Life Coaching and I can tell you living in that state of stress and discomfort is NOT normal.
You can be more than your current story.
I’ve been there, sleeping with my work mobile phone by my pillow 24/7. I’ve awakened in the middle of the night in a panic because I thought I was missing a meeting or forgot to send an email. I’ve had feelings of dread in my stomach on a Sunday afternoon because Monday is coming. I’ve known mornings when it has taken all my willpower to get out of bed, get ready, drive to work, get out of my car, and walk towards the office door and open it, in trepidation of what is on the other side.
I’ve loved answering the question, “How is it going?” with my story of stress, complaining about an important project and all the hours I am working. Like bragging rights, it made me feel good, like a celebrity, like I had a purpose.
It’s exhausting! I crashed and burned mentally and physically, and both my personal and professional relationships suffered.
“Indeed, many people do not realize the extent to which these internalized habitual emotional patterns dominate their internal landscape, diluting and limiting positive emotional experience, and eventually becoming so familiar that “stress” essentially becomes a defining part of their sense of self-identity.”Research paper by the HeartMath Institute
Who would you be if you made new, different choices?
What breaks my heart is when I hear and see competent, hardworking professionals and leaders continue to exist in toxicity or a state of stress or survival.
If you are spending your life hoping something outside of you will change, but see no way out…
If living in this kind of stress has become all too familiar…
If it feels more comfortable to stay in discomfort than to build up the courage to change things…
Then I would like to give you the tools to reconnect with your heart in cooperation with your mind/brain. I cultivate an environment for transparency and collaboration to help you with your personal and professional growth.

“Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.
And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine.
And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.”
I work to help you gain clarity in all aspects of your life, so you feel empowered to make decisions and create the changes you desire.
I encourage you to take that leap of faith in yourself. You can change your circumstances. You can be in control, and a victor of your situation.
