Beyonce's Coaching Tools

You may remember that Beyonce is one of my mojo idols. 
When one can channel their inner Beyonce (or Sacha Fierce!) some epic shit can get done. 
Well, a few weeks ago, I was coaching a client on her relationship with a man who wasn’t treating her with the respect that she deserved. 
My client wanted more of a commitment from him, and he continually failed to show up for her at crucial moments when she needed him. 
As I was listening to her, the Beyonce song “Irreplaceable” popped into my head. You know the one-“To the left, to the left- everything you own in a box to the left”. Being an intuitive coach, this kind of thing happens to me all the time and I share these intuitive blips with certain clients if I think they could be helpful. 
A few minutes later, my client told me of her partner’s jealousy about a man who had just asked her out. 
New Beyonce song this time…”if you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it, don’t be mad when you see that he want it, if you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it, oh, oh, oh.” 
Of course, because it’s me- and I have a sass mouth- I sang these little hooks to her. 
She burst out laughing, realizing that I still saw her as the spunky woman that she had forgotten herself to be.  
You knew that Beyonce is known for songs about female empowerment- but who knew that she’s the mastermind behind some awesome coaching tools on a virtual cornucopia of topics?

 Here’s what Queen Bey has to say on finances...

 “The shoes on my feet, I've bought it
  The clothes I'm wearing, I've bought it
  The rock I'm rockin', I've bought it
  'Cause I depend on me
  If I wanted the watch you're wearin', I'll buy it
  The house I live in, I've bought it
  The car I'm driving, I've bought it
  I depend on me, I depend on me”

On perseverance…

“After all of the darkness and sadness
  Still comes happiness
  If I surround myself with positive things
  I'll gain prosperity
  I'm a survivor
  I'm not gon' give up
  I'm not gon' stop
  I'm gon' work harder
  I'm a survivor
  I'm gonna make it
  I will survive
  Keep on surviving”

On body confidence…

 "I don't think you're ready for this jelly
  I don't think you're ready for this jelly 
  I don't think you're ready for this 
  "Cause my body's too bootylicious for ya babe."

 On loyalty …

 “So since I’m not your everything
  How about I'll be nothing, nothing at all to you
  Baby I won't shed a tear for you, I won't lose a wink of sleep
  'Cause the truth of the matter is replacing you is so easy
  To the left, to the left
  Everything you own in the box to the left
  To the left, to the left
  Don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable
  You must not know 'bout me
  You must not know 'bout me
  I can have another you in a minute
  Matter fact he'll be here in a minute, baby”

On commitment…

 Your love is what I prefer, what I deserve
  Here's a man that makes me, then takes me
  And delivers me to a destiny, to infinity and beyond
  Pull me into your arms, say I'm the one you want
  If you don't, you'll be alone, and like a ghost, I'll be gone
 "Cause if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
  If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it
  Don't be mad once you see that he want it
  If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it
  Oh, oh, oh."

My mission is to help everyone recover or find their mojo. Let me help you!
