About Us

The greatest key to personal development is your commitment to show up TODAY.

That's why today is your BIG day. It's your opportunity to overcome obstacles and turn personal development into personal achievement! It takes the commitment of a warrior to work on yourself daily. But be encouraged – you don't have to walk the road alone. As the ultimate life coaching resource for all 8 Areas of your life, The Big Day is here to help you succeed!

Why Is Today The Big Day?

With the occasional exception, people treat each day like it’s just a normal day. But it’s not.

Today is an important day. That paradigm shift is huge. If we focus on today, then we won’t get stuck in yesterday or be intimidated about tomorrow. That’s why today is our big day. It’s our opportunity to shape (or re-shape) our future and make it full of excellence, fulfillment, purpose, meaning, and even legacy.

Personal Development And Successful Leaders

This kind of success starts with doing the small things right today. We cannot underestimate the power of consistently unlocking the hidden potential of each day. One of the major ways we do this is by re-training our thinking and aligning ourselves with the wisdom of God. It’s vital to remember that small, daily improvements will turn into life transformations.

Making these “minor” adjustments on a consistent basis makes you a leader of YOU, let alone a better leader of others. True leaders are people who work to improve themselves. Successful leaders raise the bar of excellence by regularly making the decision to bring their A-Game and to diligently invest into every area of their lives.

And what happens if we miss the mark? Well, the good news is that we don’t play nine-inning games, and then it’s game-over. We play until we win! Each new day is our opportunity to practice, grow, and get better. Each day is the big day to make a change.

What Is The Big Day?

The Big Day is a virtual life coach and resource platform that exists to provide you with a path for growing in the wisdom of God, being led by the Spirit of God, and developing your faith. We offer tools, insights, strategies, and principles—such as the “8 Areas” and the “11 Cornerstones”—to help you re-train your thinking, maximize your ability to win big in both the natural and the spiritual, and live life to the fullest in every way.
