About Jana Sedlakova
The Founder You Successful You
Based in Washington, D.C., Jana Sedlakova was born and raised in the Czech Republic, where she studied at Pedagogical School where she received her preschool teaching diploma and also a Social-Law diploma (equivalent to social working in USA).
From an early age, Jana took a natural interest in psychology. She earned her education and professional skills in Life Coaching through Coach Training Alliance, studying under Dr. David Krueger who formerly practiced and taught Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis and was Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Baylor College. He gave her a unique perspective and knowledge on the human brain and its actions. Jana also completed his program, New Life Story®, where she studied how to integrate psychology, neuroscience, quantum physics and behavioral economics with strategic coaching.
Personally she accredits her inspiration from both her worldly travels, as well as her father - an extraordinary thinker and inventor, who believed in choosing an individualistic life path that was considered radical, during a time of conformity in the Czech Republic. It is through these experiences that Jana chose her career path - to become a Coach.
Jana believes that we were given only one body for life and in order to sustain it, we have to take care of it. Thus, her educational approach to creating healthy minds and bodies is key. She helps her clients unlock their true potential in life, change their beliefs, behavior and performance, and sets them up for a successful future. Some of Jana’s areas of expertise are: business coaching, starting up successful businesses, managing difficult and challenging personal and professional relationships, overcoming stress and adopting healthy lifestyles. She is also currently designing a children's educational program, to help set them on a better path towards a successful future.
Jana also contributes her time and resources in and around the Washington, D.C. community. She has produced and raise funds for many high-caliber events that make a difference in people's lives. Some of her causes include Becky's fund, Girls Health Ed, Good Will, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Children’s National Medical Center, Fashion for Paws, We Will Survive Cancer, Men Against Breast Cancer, Arts for Autism, Pets to Vets and many others.
Some of Jana’s quotes:
"Achieving has never been easier with the right state of mind!"
"If we cannot change the reality around us, we can certainly change the way we are looking at it!"
"Life is naturally in constant change. Resistance is the problem. We can overcome resistance with a good plan and a good coach to keep us going!"
"Plans are like railings, they keep us from falling. A coach is like a carpenter, he helps us create the railings!"
"You are either the creator of your own life, or the victim of someone's else beliefs."
