Today we’d like to introduce you to Dee Coleman.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I’ve accomplished a lot in my life, but I’ve also carried a lot of trauma and pain that was deeply rooted all the way from my childhood. My mother had me when she was 17 years old. My father was a great father (from what I’ve always been told) but I never got to know him. He was murdered when I was 2 years old. My mother was a young teen girl with a fatherless child, trying to find her way through broken generational curses of trauma and pain. Talk about a lot of resentment and abandonment pain…I harbored a lot of it at a very young age.
I had some really dark days that I didn’t allow anyone else in on. I was attracted to women and it terrified me because I didn’t feel that was right by “God” and for so many days I walked around scared shitless that something would happen to me because of my religious upbringing. The more I fought the attraction for women and tried to cover up the feelings, the stronger it got. I remember trying to hide it during my last couple of years of high school. I was miserable. I was one of the star basketball players at my high school and pretty popular (this was my outlet from shame). I felt like I was being one way at school, but lied about who I was when I was around my family. The inner battle was mad real for me at this time!
You can read more of my compelling story in my book, Coach Dee’s Playbook: Five Ways to Become a Champion of Self-Love, as it will change your life in unimaginable ways.
Loving myself was the best damn decision I’ve made for myself. I went through the storm of growth and I came out empowered and ready to live! I turned insecurities into certainties, abandonment into wholeness, and limited old beliefs into positive affirmations. Here I am today, living a positively fulfilled life I am creating simply because I made a choice to let go of what no longer served me and re-write my story! Oh, and what a powerfully resilient story it is!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Smooth road? That’s funny, but also beautiful. Many days will most certainly challenge you. I’ve been on this journey, not only with self-love, and being an entrepreneur is one of true faith and patience. Growth takes time, and if you aren’t willing to face fears and release the limited belief systems that hold you back, you’ll always feel stuck.
It takes a belief within you to go for it no matter what your current reality presents in the physical. If you can see it in your mind first, you can bring it into your physical world. Our thoughts are creating everything, and when I adopted to live a more spiritually filled life, my intentions became more evident, which has helped me manifest more of the things I desire vs. getting the bad experiences often. Self-love is an everyday practice. If you’re willing to change your mindset and habits daily, you will see the manifestations of those thoughts.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
