Kersti Jarve – International Coach
My life path has been full of extraordinary dreams. I was indulging into every book and was dreaming of living the same life as the heroes. Therefore, I was seeing myself as a lawyer, a writer, an athlete, a journalist, a spy, and even a president.
I grew up in a big family: among eight children. Hence, being supportive, compassionate, and patience was not strange for me as the eldest child. On the other hand, I liked the loneliness with my thoughts and free spirit. Frequently I was gazing at the stars of the night sky and polar lights. I knew almost all constellations names, such as Orion, Cygnus, Sirius, etc. Since my childhood, I could not tolerate physical work. I remember with a smile the unhappy moments of my happy childhood. When I should do any work in the garden, I was always vanishing and isolating with my books. Then self-education and sport played a pivotal role in molding my personality. I sincerely believe that there is nothing more powerful than the freedom to make decisions. However, every decision is also a responsibility.
I have many achievements and awards in kickboxing: WPKA world championships II place in Madrid, International Kickboxing Tournament “ESTOPEN 2008” I place, International Kickboxing Tournament “LATVIA OPEN 2009” II place, International Kickboxing Tournament “ESTOPEN 2010” II place, Estonian Championship in Kickboxing 2010 I place and etc.
A successful career in sport gave formed in me the characteristics and principles of the winner, based on which I live my daily life. I believe this saying: “In the ring when an opponent hits you, you don’t say stop. If you do, you will lose. No matter how painful the blow was or how frightening the opponent is. Or if some of your blows or kicks don’t come out, you just keep going. Life is the same you have to keep going, no matter how difficult or how broken you are. Keep going.” I am is not only a champion in the ring, but also she is a mother of 2 sons and a beautiful, emotional lady full of contradictions.
I have been a volunteer assistant police officer. Here I have also has many awards and medals: State decoration of the North Prefectural Assistant Police Officer 2015, State decoration of the Northern Prefecture 2017 and etc, of which I am truly proud.
Finding people in the most vulnerable situations, helping them while remaining neutral, has given me the ability to deal with critical situations. I have learned to deal with my emotions and focus on goals. I know that the journey from dreams to reaching goals and achievements might be very thorny, including many ups and downs. However, I undoubtedly believe that it is always possible to reach the goal.
EVE: Coaching reached me through my good friend Kersti. The hour or two we spent on the process made me think about our topics from a different perspective. The questions asked by Kersti will make you look inside and reflect on yourself, and thus rethink your issues.
ELMO: Highly recommend, Kersti is quite patient (on the one hand) and a “poke” with good experience and techniques (on the other hand then).
