Coach Lionel

Early In Life

From the beginning as a young child, I witness abuse between a father to a mother, which ignited a quest to understand why people behave and act in such ways.


As a young man, I married for the first time at the age of 25, feeling and knowing that I have been blessed with a great partner, and yet as a risky person that I was back in the days, I experience a downfall of my own making leading to a divorce.


I learned valuable life lessons in intimate and romantic relationships, thinking that it will be better next time. Well, I did things differently to ensure that as a responsible man, I would make it in my second marriage, but after 10 years, it ended in divorce after I heard the words said to me,” I do not love you anymore.”


The lessons learned from the many life situations just kept building my character by not giving up and getting up, again and again, no matter what had happened.


I have humbled myself many times in my life journey, learned to live for months as a homeless person in hot sunny Florida, saying to myself, “this too shall pass,” with a smile on my face.


Knowing deep down in the core of my soul that I was better than all the curveballs thrown at me while being vulnerable.


If you must know, what kept me going was the coaching that I was doing and getting from other coaches that I met from 2009 until now.


Life is about experiences.


I when to college studied Business administration with a minor in Psychology.


Worked for many years as Property Manager of High-rise developments, had my own companies, been a Branch Manager for a National company, managed people in improving their sales techniques, done missionary work, coached people on their pursuit of spiritual and personal development, and yet I found out, after all, that life is the best educator and teacher.


Many years have been accumulated in attending seminars, retreats and reading many books as a way of learning and applying theories into everyday life, which ultimately, I came to realize that life is the best school and that you will be tested many times to see if you have learned the lesson if not, you then repeat the process before going to the next level.


There are many called “gurus” in different industries that advise and write about achieving personal freedom by learning how to improve personal development for yourself, yet the many people who somehow find themselves in the same rut, unsatisfying, and with no purpose in their life year after year.




That being said, on this page, I intend to relate to you.


I share information that can help you on your quest to get ideas and practices for your improvement. If you need a coach that can be in your corner, support your goals and dreams, and that we can co-create a clear vision, personal statement, and path for your life to evolve from within by being spiritually inspired, I could be of assistance and service.


More certifications


It all started in 2009 with my first life coach certification when people did not know much about life coaching, and yet at the time, it looked like the industry was in the growing stages.

In 2014 in my quest to advance and get better, I was coached by two great coaches that had worked directly for many years with Tony Robbins (A top Personal Development teacher and coach for many years) and got re-certified with more coaching techniques and practices to help my clients get the direction and results that want to achieve at the time.


In 2020, I recertified again to expand my toolbox by doing a Breakthrough Coach Certification with NLP Foundations; besides, I joined the Relationship coaching Intensive by The Coaching Institute and Strategic Interventions.


Just recently, in October 2020, while the world is going nuts about the pandemic, I was invited to participate with other coaches from around the world in an intensive master coach certification given by Master Coach University.


While this page is supposed to be about me (Coach Lionel Sanabria), it is more about you in reality.


Clearly, you can read many books, attend all the seminars, spend money on programs, but if you do not get committed and have someone(coach) to be accountable to in your progress, you may have a 50/50 chance on your own; why?


It takes discipline, dedication, real commitment, and a burning desire to improve. You may need assistance for a while until you actually achieve that inner peace, knowing that everything you want is possible.


I hope you find the information provided helpful and valuable. You have all the answers within you…I only help discover them by serving you 100%.
