How are you preparing yourself
for the next challenge?

Every challenge is an adventure if you have the right mindset. An adventure with so many opportunities for internal growth.

What if you could make your next trip and know you will land smoothly?

Let me be your co-pilot!

Hi, I'm Karl Staib. The author of Bring Gratitude and coach to people who want to Dig Deeper to Fly Higher. I struggled for years with staying consistent with my goals and working toward them until I applied techniques to help me be better prepared and excited about the challenge ahead. I would like to be your co-pilot on your next big change.

I struggled with depression, money issues, being fired from a great job, Cancer, relationships, career. etc., If you are currently struggling thru something right now, I probably struggled at one time to overcome it as well. My main issue was that I didn't prepare properly. I would launch into a project and just wing it as I would go. I got decent results, but my results could have been so much better if I had a better system in place.

I prepare for every project to  improve my decision making process. The young me would just jump in and not fully vet my projects to make sure they fit into my larger purpose. Now I go through a checklist of questions before I start any major project. It's important that I have all the information I can gather to make the best choice to start or pivot to something else. It's about developing your own systems that help you improve your mindset, but also prepare yourself for the change.

Do you feel like you could use a co-pilot?

Someone to help guide you through the stormy weather.

Your Mindset Co-pilot

If you would like someone who has been through the mindset trenches and knows how you can be more productive and resilient then we should set up a time to talk. You have to review your current mindset foundation, eliminate what isn't working and create habits that will help you tackle whatever challenges that occur with your transition. When you can be grateful for each challenge you have prepared yourself to succeed.

What mental shifts do you need to make to improve your career and life?

When you are ready to make a big change in your life it should always start with working on your mindset. I made the mistake of listening to the stories and limiting beliefs that played in my head as I tried to make the leap.

"Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for." Zig Zigler

The best way to prepare for your next big change is to get your thoughts and emotions onboard, otherwise you won't succeed. It's starts with truly appreciating the challenge and all the possible nuances that will occur. That's why I have all my clients start with a system that helps them build a more positive and resilient mindset. When you practice certain mindset techniques you are rewiring your neural pathways, which builds the foundation you need to the next phase a success. You don't want to start the next phase of your life and go crawling back to the one that caused you so much stress and tension.

You could use someone to help you see your blind spots. As your co-pilot I'm there to make sure all the instruments are reading correctly and that the captain (That's You!) of the aircraft isn't making any major mistakes. It's this mutual respect that they have for each other that saves lives. I help my clients create a plan that helps them soar above the turbulence.

I had one client who got a promotion at work and had no idea how to lead people. She was caring, kind and smart, but she didn't know how to get the best out of her people. I'm going to share a secret. It starts with appreciation. You have to appreciate who they are and what they bring to their job. Then you focus on helping them grow and strive, while praising them when they are doing a good job, it's a magical formula.

It starts with working on your mindset. You have to understand your blind spots and practice growing your emotional intelligence to get to where you want to be.

Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha

"I had sessions with other coaches that felt unproductive because they merely revisited personal growth exercises I'd previously learned about in books. Karl focused instead on helping me identify the action steps around my short-term and long-term goals. As someone who thrives on organization and forward momentum, I appreciated working with someone who focuses on results."

Then let me help you put a plan together to help you make your next transition a big success.

Before you fill out the form below ask yourself one question. Are you willing to dig deep and stop letting your limiting beliefs dictate your actions? If the answer is yes, then go ahead and fill out the form below.

Understanding and appreciating how your mind works is not how most coaches work with their clients.

This is the Y.U.M.M.Y. method (Ice cream for your brain without the calories):

  1. You - Uncover your emotional triggers.

  2. Understand - Your stories and beliefs holding you back. Why do you make the choices that you do.

  3. Map - Create a visual view of how your mind works and where we can improve your outcomes.

  4. Master - Practice in 30 day chunks, review and adjust for next 30 days..

  5. Yes - Commit to a 30 day micro-routine that we'll build upon to help you make lasting changes.

Once you have a strong mindset foundation then you'll be able to become more productive and resilient.

"The best thing about working with Karl is the ease in which the conversation flows. It's easy to bounce ideas off of him and get immediate feedback and he always keeps the conversation focused and on target. He plays a great devils advocate and forces you to question your actions/direction. Karl is compassionate, understanding and full of ideas he is willing to share. He helped unlock some hidden potential in my business and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for inspiration."

How We'll Work Together

My focus is to help you dive into your current narratives and reframe or eliminate the thoughts and feelings holding you back from the growth that you seek.

  • Once we create our foundation then we'll have common ground. We'll use this time to build trust and layout out how you process information. We'll find out what are you main pain points are then the stories you tell yourself that encourage you and what stories hold you back.
  • We'll have one-on-one working sessions together depending on your coaching package. At the start of each session we'll set a goal, a ritual to support this goal and a hypothesis of how this will improve your life. After 30 days we'll review your progress and decide to keep the same goal and add a new one or just make a new one for the next 30 days.
  • I'm available via email/text (your preference) check-ins. This will help us calibrate your progress and make any small tweaks to optimize it.

I'm Karl Staib the Author of Bring Gratitude


I've struggled like everyone else. I've had relationship problems, laid off from a job, 5 years without a raise increase, Cancer, fired from another, money issues, and happiness problems. I've studied happiness for over 10 years, speaking to thousands of people all over the world and the one thing that has helped me change from someone that struggled with feeling happy to someone that wakes up excited by what the day will bring is Gratitude.

I started a gratitude journal because I was going through a huge life transition. I was losing my father and I was spinning out of control. I needed something to ground me. I turned to journaling about my father, my feelings and all the things I was grateful for. The habit of practicing daily gratitude changed my life and it can do wonders for you. It can be the catalyst that helps you make changes to your mindset.

"I wasn't sure how Karl was going to help my speaking business, but in four short weeks I not only moved forward but had a plan and two speaking contracts with new clients."

Michelle Holdt of The Art of Self Care

The “Dig to Fly” strategy is a simple yet dynamic tool to self-investigate an issue you are struggling with... Karl is a fantastic guide and sage who graciously reflects & illuminates back key insights and takeaways. I am so grateful to learn this and apply it my life and work.
