For those that are new here let me introduce myself. My name is Steve Bacon, your Master Life coach. The Steve Bacon you see today comes from 18 years education and experience and a deep invested into my own personal development and healing. Let me take you through my journey.
I experienced more traumatic events in the first 20 years of life than most could ever imagine. I was born to a single mother in the early 80’s and raised in Northern California between Hayward and Oakland.
In the early 80’s at the start of the crack epidemic, my mother became an addict. I was just 6 months old. Growing up in and out of crack houses, I was left in some pretty horrific conditions and with even worse people. Unfortunately, I was molested as a young child by one of those people.
I did not grow up knowing who my father was. So imagine my surprise when one day a man showed up at my grandmother's house claiming to be my father and just took me away to live in Georgia. Without warning, discussion or anything else for the matter. This sadly was not a positive move, and led to abuse at the hands of my father and an eventual move back to California to my grandmother’s.
By the time I graduated high school I had attended 14 different schools. Most people, including yourself, remember the first days of school. They are nerve wrecking! Are you wearing the right outfit, do you smell funny, where are you going, and who are you going to hangout with. Just a few of the things running through your head! Now imagine doing that EVERY year, and sometimes more than once, in a school year at a new school. Where you had to be the new kid, make new friends, find the bathroom, figure out who sat where during lunch. All the things that still make our palms sweat! To say it was a lot would be an understatement.
But I’m a problem solver! So as soon as I graduated high school I fled to the military.
After joining the military, I lost the only person I ever really felt loved and cared for me, my grandmother. That loss was just too much to deal with and lost all control. I was blinded by rage and pain. And how does someone find comfort when they are hurt? ALCOHOL! This lifestyle led to two failed marriages, an attempted suicide, and a felony. All by the ripe old age of 20.
Those years and events, while very painful, were necessary to put me on the path to becoming the man I am today. I owe all of this to my mentor Hank. Hank changed my life for the better and in ways I would not come to appreciate until much later.
Hank introduced me to the world of personal development and started me on my journey. I dove head first into my own personal development and tried to understand how my mind worked. I wanted to see if I could actually heal from all of the darkness I had experienced. I knew there had to be more to life than just coping.
Through this personal learning journey, I found my calling as a life coach. I felt a deep passionate calling for making a difference in other peoples’ lives and in my larger community. To help understand this calling, I became a student of the world learning and digesting teachings from some of the greatest teachers and coaches the world had to offer. It took a long time for me to see, but all of the trauma and life experiences I had turned into a gift.
Fast forwarding over the last 13 years where I have had the distinct privilege of working with world class clients while continuing to develop myself and further my understanding of how the world works. I have been able to become a world renown Master Life Coach and Teacher with the innate ability to connect with people at a soul level.
Because of my own personal journey from my bottom I am able to take clients to their most vulnerable place and work our way up from there. A saying that is echoed throughout our office is “Healed people heal people.” And I take that as not only a personal challenge but a responsibility. I have been able to heal from my own past traumas and it is now my RESPONSIBILITY to help others heal and become their best selves.
Now that you know about my journey are you ready to start your own? Work with me to uncover what’s stopping you from becoming the most successful you!
