ABOUT DONALEE

Donalee Gastreich, Speaker, Facilitator, Difference Maker, and the CEO of Complete Solutions LLC.

The work I bring forth is by far the most current and applicable in achieving reliable, repeatable, and measurable results.  I have over 30 years of experience in my own personal research, learning, and development.   I am captivated by our scientific advancements in neuroscience, quantum physics, epigenetics, metaphysics, mindset, and our abilities to shift perceptions and create entirely different realities.   I'm not afraid to test, experiment, and continually reach for new levels of growth and achievement in my own life.

I actually enjoy experimenting with my thinking and exploring my inner beliefs.   I have a vision, a plan and while it is always in the background, I allow my inner guidance to stand in the foreground to direct and guide the way.    Everything I have achieved, I have done so by listening to what my inner guidance was telling me to do.
I have healed my body with mindset, diet, and discipline.
I have eradicated all discomfort and pain in my body.
I have reset my beliefs about aging and what it looks like for me.
I have healed my brain and improved my memory using neuroplasticity.
I have ended the busy mind chatter.
I have released years of trapped emotions and old paradigms.
I have reached new levels of growth and development thru Self- Actualization.
I have realized my inner power and no longer struggle, suffer or stay stuck.
I practice holistic care - Mind, Body, and Spirit.

My work encompasses but is not limited to the following.

  • Spirituality
  • Mindfulness
  • Self-Actualization
  • Holistic Self Care
  • Clifton Strengths
  • EOS - Entrepreneurial Operating System
  • AGILE - 12 Principles of Agile Methods
  • 7 Habits of Highly Successful People
  • Evocative coaching
  • Power of the Question
  • Assessments

I have studied and been a student of A Course in Miracles, EOS,  DISC, Clifton Strengths, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Eckhart Tolle, Abraham (Ester Hicks), Taoism, Mary Morrissey, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Wim Hof, just to name a few.  I am fond of Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Victor Frankl, and Nelson Mandela for their curiosity, inner power, resilience, and persistence.

I am gifted at evoking one's inner greatness while helping them learn and grow to their peak potential.

I really love to take individuals, teams, and organizations' performances to the next level, achieving measurable and repeatable results over and over again.   Assisting Leaders to achieve new levels of excellence, innovation, and creativity for continual expansion and growth both personally and professionally is what I deliver. I believe, what really sets me apart from others is my approach to bringing SPIRITUALITY into the workplace and the minds of all.   Just imagine for one moment your entire organization of individuals skilled at tapping into their inner power.

My first-class programs begin with establishing a foundation for each client in clarifying personal and professional values as well as creating a short and long-term vision with goals.  Utilizing quarterly assessments to acknowledge growth and continually re-aligning with goals for future needed skills, keeps the client well-positioned for constant growth and development.  I'm known for my practical approach, evocative coaching style, and for promoting powerful questions and essential think time as the foundation for your success.

I have a natural contagious zest for life and an eagerness to share.  My own stories of overcoming illness and setbacks are a testament to the power and effectiveness of the principles I share and the topics I speak on.  I am passionate about bringing mastery skills to today's leaders to achieve greater influence and impact in creating a culture supportive of investing in and empowering others.

Enough about me, let's talk about you.    Reach out to me.

 

MY JOURNEY

I have had an amazing life thus far.  It's been filled with peaks and valleys, just like all of us. I’ve seen super high times and some really low times as well.   I know how easy it is to be just one thought away from an entirely different reality. How do I know? I created them and lived them. As a child, I held on to stories of unworthiness and created sad and painful memories and as an adult, I created my dreams and desires and I also created and experienced some heartache, suffering, and pain.

Believe me when I say that I certainly would not have described it like this when I was going through those tough times, but with greater awareness, growth, and intelligence I am able to connect the dots (per se) to life’s events, the lessons, and the benefits.

When I was in my early twenties I knew I wanted two things – to be a mom and be in sales.    I felt an inner calling to be a mother and while I was waiting for that to unfold in my life,  I knew with certainty that I was not a good fit to sit behind a desk all day.   Diagnosed with scoliosis and feeling the discomfort and pain that sitting created, I wanted a position that allowed more mobility and variety while challenging my need for adventure.  Passionate about serving others and looking to expand my outgoing personality, I secured a position in sales.   So here began my career and adult life.

Fast forward to 2009, divorced with three wonderful sons.  I find myself in a  traumatic time in life, with lots of stress, pain, hurt, and a few years of not dealing with emotions, numbing myself with food, alcohol, drugs, TV, or anything that allowed me to escape the current moment.

Birth of my business, Complete Solutions LLC

For the first time in my life, my income was below 10,000.   I had never felt more broken and damaged in all my life.  I was in my mind, at rock-bottom.

You see, rock-bottom is the end of old ways, but it's also the beginning of something new..  Wow, how life changes quickly when you are ready for the change and creating it by design. I realized I was focusing on all the things I did not like about myself, all the pain, all the problems, and all the pressure.  Maybe you can relate.  The change started when I changed my focus.  I adopted a new mantra.   I printed it out as big as possible on a sheet of paper 8-1/2 x 11.

I posted this message in every room in my home, office, car, etc.  It took a while for me to notice the change, but it wasn't long before I was on my way to being better than 100%.   I can say that the growth continues to this day and I am certain that as long as I live I will strive to be the best version of myself possible.  It has been a most amazing journey to Self-Realization, Self- Actualization, and Mastery.   Life is easy and simple when you understand how it works and begin to work with it, not against it.

Life really is like a puzzle, all the pieces really do fit together and we are always growing and experiencing more of who we are becoming.  My job is to be the Best Version of me possible.
