LGBTQIA + Pride

LGBTQIA + Pride

Welcome to Pride month! I consider myself cisgender and heterosexual. My adjectives are she/her/hers. This is information I don’t typically need to share because I have heterosexual privilege. I’m not proud of it; I didn’t ask for it; it just is. Heterosexuals can...

Global Day of Parents

Global Day of Parents

The first of June was declared the Global Day of Parents by the United Nations. In my experience, there is no greater love than the love parents have for their children. Parents deserve to be celebrated. It’s the one job almost everyone can do with zero training—other...

Mental Health Today

Mental Health Today

Limiting Beliefs about Emotions & PhysiologyWhenever the world gives us something different than what we want, our body gives us signals to let us know. These signals, whether a painful emotion or body pain unexplained by medical causes, exist to let us know to do something about the situation. The challenge is we often ignore these signals and create a behavior to remedy the situation that may include those painful emotions or body pain. When these experiences linger, they are no longer the signal as originated. Typically, subconsciously they have become part of our solution to get what we want. Limiting beliefs people have about this include:1. I can’t trust myself and these signals.2. I can’t get what I want without these painful emotions and body pains.3. People need to be guilted into doing the right thing.4. I don’t deserve to have what I want.These are all beliefs that can prevent you from maximizing the benefit from these painful occurrences while preventing you from learning more effective ways to get what you want.therelationshipcenter.biz#mentalfreedom #therelationshipcenter #kimolver #choicetheory ...

In this episode I discuss the difference between discipline and punishment in school and how punishment doesn't really work unless all we want is compliance. When you are looking to help your students learn and grow, a new discipline is needed. Teachers aren't trained to be counselors to their students but they are often called upon to fill a similar role. The simplicity of helping students self-evaluate can help teachers gain a framework for providing students what they need, without a counseling degree.Listen in at life-choices.captivate.fm/episode/disciplinevpunishment.#teaching #education #selfevaluation #lifeequalschoices #disciplinevpunishment #effectivediscipline ...

What are people saying...

I really appreciate you and what you are doing for this world. It has truly inspired me. I started Choice Theory thinking that it is just another theory to learn. Instead it has put me on a journey to self discovery and more. It feels like a roller coaster ride and the past 4 days has shown me how to enjoy that ride. It would not have been possible without having gone through a great and empowering training with you.

Relationships are difficult and in those tough times , Kim’s insight and wisdom have helped me to become the parent, husband, and friend that I want to be. It is a blessing to have someone that provides you the balance you need to evolve. I now realize that it’s not about being who “they” want you to be but being the best YOU that you can be…Thanks Kim!
