Life Coach: Drug Issues
Dear Tom, As someone I have been friends for over ten years, it has not been easy for me to see you make some bad choices in your life. In the last few years, you have been arrested on multiple occasions for having possession of illegal drugs; you have lost your wife, and visitation rights for you to be able to see your kids until you straighten up your life. But you have been making improvements such as going to drug rehab and trying to find a job. Just to be clear, a life coach is not a therapist. It’s someone that is a friend who will help you improve your career and your life so you can get back on your feet into the direction that you should be going. (Hamilton,1996). If you choose to decide to hire a life coach you will be introduce to what is known as the Hero’s journey. It’s long-marathon journey that will help you get to your full potential. As a friend, I know you have a lot more in you than you really show. By taking this Hero’s journey marathon you will be able to be succeeding at your full potential. Life is a long marathon and it seems like things come up when you less expect it and everything comes down before you can even blink your eye. By choosing to take the hero’s journey you will be able to separate from your life struggles and be able to move on in the direction your family and friends want you to go in your life. By taking the hero’s journey you will embark on a number of stages according to the hero’s journey outline (Hero’s journey outline (n.d)). Eventually you will cross that threshold of not being addicted to drug use anymore. By crossing the threshold you will no longer be spending money on drugs and you will get your family back because you are showing them that you have…...

The Issue of Power in the Christian Life

...Paul's teaching on God's Power for Christian living. In chapters 6-8, Paul discusses a pertinent topic about the effect of the gospel on people's lives, mainly people's sinful nature. In verse 15, he asks a particularly pertinent question concerning sin; “What should we say then? We should not sin because the law does not rule us but rather God's grace” (Romans 6:15). For if it is only faith that justifies us to live a gracious life. What is the incentive for living a holy life? Why do we not just have the best of both worlds? Paul argues that if one were a slave to a bad master, and gets a new master who is guiltless, one would still want to work occasionally for the bad master (Graham, 1978). Paul then maintains that we may still struggle not sin, but we should not be kept in bondage by it. He shows us the difference between abiding by the law and living according to the holy spirit of God. Using marriage law as an example, he shows us that the law does not lose its authority over us by its death, but by people's death. It rules over us as long as we live. In Romans 8:1-10, Paul demonstrates how to live in accordance with the spirit, thereby allowing peace in people's hearts. By the Holy Spirit, we are God’s children and have the assurance before God that nothing shall come between us and his love. This, he refers to as hope because it gives us a bright future in Christ (Alexander & Alexander, 2002). Paul shows us that people's present suffering cannot be compared to...

The Coach

...Professor Nora Kabaji English 100 Name of Essay Midterm Essay 11 May 2009 Topic of this essay: Discuss the effects of one personal goal or hobby that you have pursued and enjoyed (or are enjoying) in your life, such as your education, your marriage, a place you are living in, a game, or a hobby. The Coach There are many hobbies that I have had as I get older, but none have made an impact as much as coaching has done for me. My son’s soccer team was chosen without a coach and was in jeopardy of not being able to play, so I did the right thing that any parent would do and I volunteered to be the head coach. That decision was a decision that has given me a new outlook on life and for my future. I never really thought that I would fall in love with coaching as much as I did. Coaching has become a very valuable hobby to me that has taught me many valuable lessons. Coaching has taught me to prepare in everything I do, it has taught me to be a better competitor, and it has given me the ability to be a better teacher. Coaching as a hobby has been a very fun and eventful time in my life, but coaching has taught me to prepare for not only my games but for everything I do in life. I was a procrastinator when it came to completing tasks, and it would drive my family crazy. When I started coaching I noticed that I had to prepare well in advance, and my preparing started months before any practice or game had started. I go over and over in my head what the next......

How a Drug Addict Changed My Life

...How a Drug Addict Changed My Life Elizabeth Miller ENC 1101-1002 Professor Bahle November 10, 2012 How a Drug Addict Changed My Life Growing up, we always had people living with us that were in different stages of recovery. Some were drug users, some were drinkers and some were both. My step-dad had about 6 years of sobriety under his belt when the first person stayed with us. His name was Jerome, and he had stumbled into the street in down town Seattle and had been hit by a metro bus years before. He had problems from that and also epilepsy. He was with us until he could get into a full time care center. We moved shortly after that, into a home that had 2 spare bedrooms. We would have people stay with us for a few days off and on, until Greg and Stephanie showed up. They were the first two in the new house to move in. Stephanie was almost killed in a car accident she got into driving drunk, so she was recovering from that and drying out from alcohol. Greg was a different than anyone else I had ever met and I’d like to share his story. This is how he changed my life. Driving down our street, I noticed extra cars parked around our house. This wasn’t unusual; my parents hosted a recovering addict’s Bible study at our home every Thursday night. The members of our group became family, and we almost always had someone over for dinner. This Friday evening seemed to be no exception. I parked and gathered my things and walked into the house. Not paying......

Coach Carter

...Coach Carter is based on a true story that happened in Richmond, California in 1999. It’s about a man who once played for the Richmond high school basketball team and he decides he wants to coach them. The players on his team have no respect and think they can do whatever they want. Timo Cruz is one of the main characters in this movie, he gets kicked off before Carter hands out his contracts and he quits once more during the season. Another main character is Kenyon Stone, he has struggles involving his girlfriend being pregnant and trying to go to college and play basketball there. Carter gives out his a contract to all his players and he actually takes them seriously which the school doesn’t like because basketball is the only thing most of these kids have. This contract forces these kids to go to class and maintain a certain average in order to play. The team starts off great winning its first 14 games but Carter soon finds out from progress reports that most of his players aren’t maintaining the required grades so he decides to cancel all team activities and locks the court until the team raises their grades. This makes the whole community angry and it eventually leads to him getting fired but the players still want him as a coach so he stays. One of the issues from Coach Carter is teenage pregnancy. Keynon Stone gets his girlfriend pregnant and now has to plan out his life like whether or not he’s going to go to college to play basketball or stay home with his......

...The Coach Collector Jamie M Shire Strayer University The Coach Collector Everyone has a collection of something, whether they realize it or not. Many people casually collect items as they live their daily lives, picking up a series of this or that as they happen across them. Some will spend considerable amounts of time and money scouring the world for specific pieces they must have in their collection. A few of us have dismissed the idea of collecting until a friend opens up a kitchen cabinet and announces “WOW, that’s quite a collection of coffee cups you have there!” At this point, one of two things usually happens. Either 10 coffee cups immediately get thrown away, or each time we’re in a store, garage sale, or the best friend’s house, we find ourselves looking at coffee cups to add to the cupboard. I don’t consciously collect too many things. Ironically I DO have a small collection of Starbucks coffee cups, but I’m getting it under control. One group of items that I have collected for many years and have a deep appreciation for is my assortment of Coach products. I’ve learned, through 10 plus years of collecting Coach, that most people associate the company with lady’s purses and handbags. The truth is the company is quite diverse and offers a large selection of high quality products, giving avid treasure seekers like me many opportunities to find additions to our collection. Coach, Inc., as we know it today, began life in 1941 in a......

The Ethics of Human Life Expansion: Juvenile Drug Abuse

...article. One paragraph talks of dramatically extending the life age by centuries or indefinitely. It goes on to list examples of some things being researched today and says they are promising avenues of research that could be used within a generation to extend life. They will soon be able to replace worn out body parts or replace age damaged cells. I see two examples of rhetoric in these paragraphs, euphemism and dysphemism. Another paragraph talks of how any huge gain in the life expectancy could have negative consequences. It gives examples that could hurt the world population like an overabundance of an older population, the strain it could have on the health care systems, the fight for everyday earth resources like water, and the social impact that it could produce. This paragraph had a lot of downplaying rhetoric in it. Euphemism rhetoric seemed to be the main theme of this article. To me there was more examples of the positive things that could be had if science continues to find ways to manipulate the human body and find ways to life a longer life. The last paragraph had the most rhetoric with dysphemism and downplaying. It gave examples of some of the possible negative effects on the world if humans do in fact start to live longer. I believe this article has enough rhetoric to sway the reader one way or the other depending on how that person feels about the subject. This article talks of how drug abuse among juveniles is a terrible public health......

Americas Issue on Drug Smuggling Modest Proposal

...Drug Smuggling Drug smuggling is one of the biggest issues we have in modern America. Constantly day by day illegal drugs are being trafficked throughout the United States. Especially throughout the southern states like Texas, Florida, Southern California, and Arizona. They are the main targets for drug smugglers to get across in our country. Arizona hosts some of the main transportations since it is the closest state to the United States border and it is a major issue in our country that we must stop. There is many solutions we have for this problem in order to get rid of it and mark it off of our list of issues. We can reinforce our borders with more border patrol agents thelp protect us from smugglers , so it would be more difficult to cross. Also we can extend the length of our borders which will help avoid smugglers. Not to mention upgrading our security which can possibly help us notify our enforcers from illegal drugs being passed. There is just so many possibilities that we can do in order to solve this issue. On the other hand not all these solutions will work lets just face facts they all have a chance of failing, but there is one solution that will work one hundred percent. Why don’t we just help drug smugglers deliver their drugs but through another country. What if we show them another country that they can transport drugs so they can make more profit which is probably why they are selling drugs in the first place. If we show them......

Issues of Life and Death

...Issues in Life and Death: Paper 3 Physician assisted suicide is gradually becoming more and more of an accepted practice across the world. Here in the United States, a few states have already legalized physician assisted suicide, albeit with certain safeguards. It appears that the sentiment behind this practice is evolving. People are starting to see that it is frivolous to needlessly suffer when you are faced with an inevitable death. Patients with cancer and other terminal illnesses have already taken advantage of this practice. Recently however, a Swiss assisted-suicide clinic known as Dignitas announced their intention to help a healthy woman die alongside her terminally ill husband. This has raised many eyebrows, as well as some pertinent questions with regard to the morals of our society. For example, is there a principled difference between letting this healthy woman die and letting her terminally ill husband die? I am proposing that in principle the wife in this case has just as much of a right to end her own life as her husband does. I believe that although this woman’s case is semantically different from her husbands (relative health vs. terminal illness), they are morally equivalent. Humans are autonomous agents, capable of making rational decisions. As long as they are of a sound mind it can be argued that they know what is best for themselves. When someone imposes their will upon another’s ability to make their own rational decisions they are......

Rehabilitated Drug Addicts Can Return to Normal Life

...Introduction 2. Body * The rehabilitation program being short * Lack of a transition plan in place * Effect of family or peers * Lack of willingness by the individual * Presence of an undiagnosed disorder * Lack of follow-up 3. Conclusion Rehabilitated Drug Addicts Can Return to Normal Social Life. Drug and substance abuse and addiction is a colossal issue today. Hanson and Ventulleri recently noted in their research on marijuana that there has been a rise in its use among teens as at 2013(6). Drug use has devastating consequences including stress, health problems and addiction that has necessitated Government agencies and National Drug societies to establish measures meant to help drug addicts conquer their addiction state and enable them lead healthy lives. Treatment programs aim to suppress the urge for cravings and effects associated with withdrawal. However, despite these efforts, little has been achieved as many of those who undergo such treatment programs relapse into their chronic addiction state (Leavitt 154). Treatment aims at lowering the possibility of relapse. However, this has not always been achieved. Because of the increasingly high numbers of addicts going back into drug use, questions have been raised about the reliability of the methods used. While addiction can be successfully managed just as other chronic diseases, there exist several factors that hinder the process of restoring addicts to normalcy. One of the reasons that......

Ethical Issues Regarding the Use of Performance Enhancing Drugs in Sports

...Ethical issues regarding the use of Performance Enhancing Drugs in Sports In the history of 20th century sports, specifically in the post World War 2 era, there has been an ever increasing use of performance enhancing drugs in all avenues of sport. Sports have become money making machine for both athletes and big business and the “win at all costs” attitude which has permeated itself into all aspects of professional and college level athletics. Winners make money, losers don’t. The temptation of fame, notoriety and million dollar contracts in all venues of sport is a lure for many athletes. Elite professional athletes are worshiped in today’s society. This paper will elaborate on the use of performance enhancing drugs in the sporting world and the associated sports ethical issues. It is a majority belief in all sporting circles that the “true” spirit of sportsmanship does not allow any aspect of performance enhancing drugs. There are several arguments both in favor and against the use of performance enhancing drugs which will be presented and discussed in this paper. While addressing this ethical issue, we need to define the term ethics. Ethics can be defined as the socially accepted norms and values. These norms and values are varied from society to society and are based on culture and tradition. Ethics also could be defined as the unsaid, un-written and understood laws that prevail in a society. Ethics also cover what is right and what is wrong in society and......

Current Issue in Life-Span Development

...Current Issue in Life-Span Development In the field of life-span development, current issues are plentiful. The development of homosexuality and the phase’s a person goes through to reach a place where they are comfortable with themselves is a journey in itself. It was in 1892 that the term homosexuality was first used. A homosexual (2011), according to Merriam Webster Online, “of or having sexual desire for those of the same sex.” In order to understand the development of identity of homosexuals, it is first important to be mindful of the framework of sexuality in general. The term homosexuality is used to depict the comprehension of sexuality however; in today’s society; the preferred verbiage to define individuals is being gay or lesbian. Homosexuality and Life-span Development Sullivan and Schneider (1987) argue that homosexual coming out in youth has to be seen from a non-derogatory developmental perspective. In an attempt to react to the unique pressures found in adolescents showing an increasing gay or lesbian identity, psychologists and counselors must become familiar with the distinctive development of gay and lesbian adolescents, in addition to the sexual identity development literature in general. Reviewing the developmental issues of gay and lesbian adolescents creates thoughts concerning developing services to assist them. Often times, adults are hesitant to pay attention to adolescent communications concerning sexuality. These feelings begin to arise......
