Erna Stassen - Certified High Performance Coaching

If you want to live a happy, free, joyful, abundant life, why wouldn’t you find a High Performance coach that can take you to the next level?

How can I help?

Who Am I?

Let me introduce myself to you and provide you with a window into my life and what I am about.

  • When you have a desire to learn how to paint, wouldn’t you find a teacher that can help you?
  • When you want to learn how to play the piano, wouldn’t you find some one who knows how to play the piano?
  • When you are a talented athlete, wouldn’t you find a coach who can take you to the next level?

Then why,

if you want to live a happy, free, joyful, abundant life,

wouldn’t you find a High Performance coach that can take you to the next level?


I am FREE, abundant, and live a vibrant, healthy life surrounded by loving people and supportive relationships.

You can have all that too!

I am no different than you.

I am just like you, experiencing life, learning and growing.

Loving and hurting.

Laughing and crying.

Playing and creating.

I am far from perfect, but I know I am ENOUGH.
And so are you.
I am a dreamer and a manifester of my dreams, and you can be too.
I believe in the power of my mind and in my capacity to continue to grow, and so can you.
I believe that where I am is perfect and that it is in my nature to grow and change.
I don’t need to change to become a better person, but I want to change because I have a desire to learn and grow.
I want to explore my mind’s capacities and expand beyond my made up limitations.
And so can YOU!


I am curious and interested.
I love adventure and challenges.
I love being close to nature.

I love  outdoor activities

I love and enjoy life no matter what.

I love connecting with people and see them for who they really are.

I believe life is supposed to be full and abundant.

I had difficult times just like every one else. The most difficult ones are my best learning experiences and I embrace them as signposts on my journey:

  • The worst relationships were my greatest teachers about myself.
  • The worst health crisis was my best motivator to find myself.
  • My deepest losses were my most powerful catalysts for expanding the love in my heart.

I take full responsibility for how I feel, for how I respond to life and for what unfolds in my life.

I choose to live every day intentionally, instead of reactive. I choose to feel good.

Growth is Natural

Growth is natural.
No growth is the beginning of the end. Growth is change. You have to choose to change in order to grow. You have to choose to change in order to live.

You are no less than the greatest artist, musician, powerful leader, or successful entrepreneur.

Your limitations are all in your mind.

You are just as capable as anyone to have an amazing relationship, fun friends, a fulfilling career, vibrant health and abundance.

Why not Choose to Change?

Learn and grow

with help from a life coach.

Find and remove the obstacles that have gotten in your way and take yourself from where you are to where you want to be!
