It’s Time to be You Again!

“The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts and energies – in order to make your vision manifest. You must withhold nothing.”      –    Warren Bennis


It doesn’t matter how you landed here, I am grateful you did.

I’m Rick Ruppenthal, my field is change, transformational change.

Coaching is not about just the change but about changing our relationships to our circumstances in a way that if you wanted to transform something and if you can have a different way of looking at it, suddenly things appear that were not there before. Now you have different possibilities, different choices and different actions that you can take to make a difference.

The possible becomes the possible!

What makes anything possible is to recognize that you and I as human beings, having this experience called living, are taking actions which will always affect the future, no matter what!

All actions including doing nothing (which is an action BTW), will always affect outcomes!

The question is are we taking actions as an expression of ourselves or are we taking actions as a function of what somebody else thinks or as function of some problem we’re trying to solve or are we reacting to the world?

Are you creating a world?

If your not, who is then?

As a coach/facilitator/trainer, I am an equal learner with my clients. There is always a balance of give and receive; teach and learn that is created in each session.

Imagine a relationship where the total focus is on you, on what you want in your life, and on what will help you achieve it. That is what a coaching relationship is like. There is no other relationship that consistently offers this unique, extraordinary level of support and encouragement.

Being your coach is like having me as your own personal navigator through your journey of life; someone who will help find your flow, purpose, your reason to get up in the morning and keep you on your course.

Ask yourself:

Are my commitments determining my reality or does my view of reality determine my commitments?


A coaching relationship is one that will unstuck your stuckness.

When you become unstuck, you then get to realize how much more real and vibrant life really is, than any fantasy or imagined future could be. You get to experience the richness, beauty and details of the present moment – the NOW.

At the heart of all my work for clients is for them to discover themselves, the who they are being and, to realize they do have choices and answer “what would they be committed to if, they were not limited by what they think that limits them.”

Who are you being right now?

By being this being, are you getting the results that you wanted?

Imagine a life where you can finally break free of your limiting self-talk and instead of having life happen to you, it happens for you!

Life is not easy…change is not easy…and you are so worth it. Having a coach to do it together with is a whole lot more fun!



My coaching uses a unique, integrative approach based on Jungian models, Life Coaching, Human Needs Psychology, Strategic Results Sessions and Ikigai.

David shuffled around in an non-purposefulness manner. Going from task to task, head down and shoulders slumped over. He acted a lot slower than normal, didn’t smile as much today and was certainly not engaged in his work. “Hey, David how’s it going?” “Crappy,” he said a low tone of voice. “I have a hangover.”… Read More

Ok, I might have changed a word or two. Yes, René Descartes, Cogito, ergo sum first written in his Discourse on the Method, is usually translated into English as “I think, therefore I am“.
