Does any of this sound like you?
The alarm goes off, you’re filled with dread, you slam the snooze and roll over so you can avoid your hectic day and your mile long to do list for just 9 more minutes.
Or how about
Your bedtime and your wake up time get conspicuously closer and closer with every passing year. You’re busier than ever, taking on more responsibility at work and at home and you’re none the richer nor happier for it.
Or maybe even
You glide through life taking in each moment and enjoying it, but find yourself hopelessly late to everything, behind on all your projects, and just wishing for a different future instead of actually taking action.
These are a few samples of things where coaching can help. They feel like standard issue misery that we all just have to suffer through, BUT THEY’RE NOT. All areas where you struggle to create a different outcome can be addressed with coaching.
There’s no one-size-fits-all cookie cutter course that’s going to get you that perfect future. Without someone holding you to it, will you even finish that course anyway? And without a sounding board will it bring meaningful change?
The self help book industry makes millions, and yet people still struggle because it’s that human engagement that makes things work. We are social beings. The coaching interaction changes everything.
Relying on your own answers to what you know is right for YOU is what makes the difference. Advice is great for what dishwasher to buy and what dry cleaner to use, but it’s not great for how to find the future that you want. You can’t get that in a store. You get that within yourself by getting help peeling back the layers until YOUR right answer is revealed.
Believe me, I’ve been in enough sessions (both as coach and client) to know that
a. the answer is in there
b. you will surprise yourself when you find it.
Even if you’ve been searching unassisted for months or years – it’s amazing what one trained individual can help you discover within.
