I’m Hafizah Ismail, a Certified High Performance Coach, a Grief Recovery Specialist and the founder of a child bereavement charity.
My life’s mission is to help people authentically become their best possible selves in order to live, love and lead in the most powerful way possible.
As a High Performance Coach, I help my clients break free from the established way of living and offer life changing experience driven by the spirit of leadership.
I believe that no matter who you are, what you do and where you are in your life right now, there is a leader hidden inside you.
Because you know what?
We are all leaders in our own unique way.
If you’re a Parent, you’re leading your family through thick and thin, carving a path for your kids by being a role model for them.
As a Professional, you’re leading your clients or team by lifting their spirits, affirming, supporting and turning them into the driving force behind your vision.
As a Passionate Entrepreneur, you’re a thought leader to your community, with compassion, determination & drive, imparting your expertise in the best way possible.
So as a leader, whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, whether you lead from the front or from the back, you get to realize your personal potential to become aware of all the endless opportunities around you. You get to meet the highest standards of performance, and you get to build your personality beyond mediocrity.
The question is, are you being the true leader you aspire to be, or others see you as?
If NOT, then who’s going to lead you to where you want to be?
For the past 15 years, I’ve taken on many different roles in my life, from founding an internationally acclaimed child bereavement charity to creating a successful education consultancy business, from becoming one of the world’s top high performance coaches to adopting two beautiful toddlers and a baby who get me going even when the going gets tough.
Armed with the right knowledge and understanding, I’ve created a media presence that’s seen me covered in national press and on TV, and have had the honour to transform under-achieving students and staff into flourishing, successful communities.
But life wasn’t always rainbows and unicorns for me.
I’ve had my fair share of loss, grief and pain.
I’ve had the experience of feeling depressed, desolated and dejected.
You know the feeling when everything comes crashing down on you as you watch your world break into a million little pieces, yet you’re totally helpless against it?
I’ve been in the thick of it.
Right when life started for me, I got divorced at the age of 23.
The experience shut me down. I don’t know how else to put it.
I was young, I was sensitive, I was vulnerable.
Apparently, life tried to knock me out cold.
But I didn’t let it.
You know why?
Because long before I knew this high-performance world, I was a high-performer to my core.
I had desires to fulfill, goals to achieve, and dreams to live.
I made a decision to live intentionally, love incredibly and make every moment & day count - if I was going to love again, I would love incredibly... give my all and be my all for my future spouse.
7 years later, I got married to the man of my dreams.
But life had other plans.
Despite having the deep urge to become a mother and raise passionate, driven & spirited children, I waited for 7 long years but that moment never came.
I felt suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight.
The inexplicable uniqueness of life had me in a bind.
I felt an intense emptiness inside.
Like I could never be happy again, like I had no purpose left.
At times, I’d feel like crying but couldn’t.
But here’s the thing about human life. You can spend your life in misery & regrets or you can forge ahead in life with acceptance & motivation, the choice is always yours.
Yes, it’s easier said than done because it can be the hardest thing in the world to do... to make a consciously powerful choice.
But I did. And life has never been the same again.
7 years later we adopted, not 1 but 2 toddlers and a baby!
When I became a parent, I, once again, chose to be the best parent I could become and live everyday intentionally and love my children incredibly.
Even though I found my way to high performance coaching in 2014, my career as a mindful teacher and coach started almost 15 years ago.
Where I empowered, motivated and allowed my students to dream bigger and really believe that they can achieve whatever they put their mind to.
Over time, I honed in on my zone of genius and realized my endurance to the challenges life threw my way.
Every time life pushed me to the limit, I came back more powerfully with a strategic, well-thought out, beautiful plan.
I have been privileged to be individually trained by Brendon Burchard, one of the top motivation and marketing trainers in the world.
His work is internationally renowned by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Usher, and Richard Branson.
“One of the most influential leaders in the field of personal growth.” THIS is what Oprah said about him.
So You See! With my life experiences combined with achieving the highest level of coaching certification in the world, it’s suffice to say that I know a thing or two about high performance coaching and what it takes to take your life and business to the next level.
Despite raising 3 young kids…
I’m successfully running not only 1 but 2 International businesses.
I have become even more productive, vibrant and courageous in my day-to-day life.
I am crystal clear about how I wish to raise my daughters as smart young women who are confident, courageous and kind.
I am not only successfully able to nurture my relationships and personal connections, but have the freedom to carve out some quality “ME” time as well.
With the power of high performance, I know who I am, where I’m headed in life and what my priorities are, and my calendar mirrors that.
After going through gigantic life challenges, literally investing thousands in training and research, and learning from the leading experts, I have finally cracked the code of living with clarity, courage and, most importantly, with the kind of confidence that supports your professional as well as personal dreams.
Being a high performer, I didn’t let myself become a victim of my circumstances.
Instead, I chose to consciously create this beautiful & highly successful life for myself where I can generate the joy, energy and happiness I needed to turn things round!
