Coach yourself out of a funk and get back on track.
If you're stuck and overwhelmed by negative emotions right now, this workbook is for you!
Hi, I'm Martha Sigargök-Martin!
I help smart and creative people like you overcome their fears and doubts and dare to take imperfect action.
I'm here to help you with the resistance you might feel towards getting started with a project dear to your heart that you want to showcase and be recognized or paid for.
Get yourself on the waiting list of my upcoming online training that's going to give you the tools to overcome obstacles and get tangible results.
Being able to have dreams is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal.
But it becomes problematic when you never act on them.
It's okay when it's something you're not too much attached to, but if it's something that is really dear to your heart and you never act on it because you're afraid of what people might think or you don't think it's realistic, then what?
Feeling the gap between aspirations and actions isn't the easiest thing to do, but it's possible.
Daydreaming about all the fantastic things you could make happen in your life is great, but acting on those dreams takes a lot of effort and dedication. Meditating all day long hoping for insights isn't going to cut it. Taking action will, but taking action while taking care of your mindset at the same time.
Because putting a lot of effort into something without really believing in it, isn't going to work either.
You need both: Mindset and Action.
If you've had a business, a book, or any kind of creative project idea for more than 3 months and haven't done anything about it yet (but also can't let go of it) it's time to get support. You have a roadblock you can't identify yet, that is stopping you from moving forwards.
If you've started but stopped in the middle of the process, for whatever reason, this isn't a coincidence. Talking yourself into believing that you're a procrastinator isn't going to help you either. You need to disrupt something.
If you're almost done, but somehow found a way to not finish, you might have encountered even deeper resistance and need to work through it.
Together we will establish "what is" and understand your thriving style. Because fighting against your preferences isn't going to work. You need to find something sustainable for you, where you are no longer fighting against yourself all the time.
The kind of coaching and teaching style you can expect from me...
I'll never push you to do anything that makes you feel bad about yourself, but I also won't let you off the hook.
I'm not a conformist and my most hated sentences of all time begin with: "But everybody thinks (or does)...."
Who's this everybody anyway?!
I'm not a small talker either. In other words, I'm not the right person to talk to about the weather, nor do I care about Keeping up with the Kardashians (although apparently, they are fantastic business women).
What I do care about is this:
- What you want to achieve in life
- Who you are (and not the polished Instagram version)
- What makes you feel alive
- Your wildest dreams and ideas
- Or the last fantastic experience you had, the book you read, or film you've watched
I'm a French expat that has been living in Germany for 19 years and I have a background in History and German linguistics.
I left school at 16 and immigrated to Germany with no money, no knowledge of the language, no connections, and no clue. I worked to support myself, learned the language and got my high school degree on the side. I then started to study and got a Master's Degree a few years later with lots of obstacles and very difficult moments in between.
Then I tried lots of different jobs from working in the catering industry to working in call centers and was even an accountant for a short period. My job stories alone could fill up a whole book.
I had a film blog born out a VOD-business idea that I put on hold after almost 3 years of hustle, escalating workload and a load of money spent on networking events, festivals, and courses. After much consideration I decided that I didn't want it bad enough to transform it in a profitable business.
In the meantime I had built a wine importing business out of my living room. However, I also realized that I neither wanted to be a full-time wine importer nor have tons of wine bottles stacked in our apartment.
After relocating to 10 cities and almost 40 different addresses (mice and huge wall holes included), 28 jobs and internships, 3 blogs, 1 online shop, 14 websites, 5 business ideas and 2 business attempts, I finally listened to my heart, started to set boundaries towards abusive people, dead-end jobs, working for free or peanuts, and forcing myself to do things I didn't want to do in the first place, and followed my passion for mindset and how to overcome the odds, which has played, as you might have understood by now, a big part in my story.
I got myself certified as a life coach and learned everything you need to know to get a human being unstuck with techniques like NLP and Life Story Coaching.
If you need to overcome the fear of trying things out and taking action, I am your gal. I speak German, French, and English fluently so I'm able to have one-on-one sessions via Zoom with you in those languages.
Important to know as well:
A coach can never replace a therapist!
If you're struggling with depression or any other kind of mental health issue, there are several official organizations that can help you find a therapist who fits your needs in your home country.
If you like self-guided flexible learning, I have an upcoming online training to help you understand yourself better, develop strategies to perform better, feel less anxiety and finish a project dear to your heart.
