You’re intense and self-aware. You have more ideas than you know what do do with. Yet you struggle with a lack of focus, willpower, or motivation to commit to a single direction.
“I have so many ideas that I get confused. Where should I start? Will it be the one that works out?”
You might hold yourself back with self-criticism or over-thinking, but you’re determined to improve and remain healthy while working to make an impact in the world.
You don’t need someone to tell you what to do. You already know what you need to do; you’re simply not doing it!
What’s the greatest obstacle we all face in life? Watch to find out…
Together we will map out a new direction, which may include practicing healthy behaviours that serve you and will make forward movement easier.
It’s not about pushing against what’s blocking you – that only creates more resistance. It’s about working through your blocks or charting a course around your obstacle.
Let’s pull back the layers and uncover your fears, behaviours, attitudes, stories, or habits that have held you back. Often it’s simply something you believed that was once true that has kept you stuck. Like writing a book (of your awesome new life), to make it outstanding you have to write many drafts and edit your content well in excess of the time it took to create the original idea.
Coaching at it’s best is about asking you questions. My only agenda are the words and the “stories” you tell me; what I hear, see, and sense. My skill in helping you transform is not only in how well I listen, but in the quality of the questions I ask of you. I don’t know the answers to your challenges, but with thoughtful question, you will discover your own best solutions.
Once we understand your blocks, you need to take immediate action to move forward. Sometimes it will feel like something is holding you back, because momentum is hardest to start from a full stop. Once you get movement, and keep moving, forward momentum in the form of progress and results becomes not only easier, but more frequent.
When you read a book, attend a seminar or follow a program on personal growth, leadership, goal setting, finding your passion, and so on, what normally happens?
Most of us follow along and then move on. It’s easy to listen, get a bunch of great ideas, and then do nothing about it. In a few days you’ve forgotten half of what you’ve learned. In a few weeks you probably don’t even remember what you read or learned.
When we work together I’m not afraid to ask probing, sometimes uncomfortable questions. You have complete control over whether you want to go farther, or change the subject. The more open you are to confronting your fears, challenges, attitudes, and beliefs, the more you will be able to transform and develop the new muscles to take action and get what you want out of life.
Coaching is about you learning about yourself. It’s about stepping out of contemplation and working things through to the point where you take immediate action and start doing.
Coaching is not about me telling you what you need to do. It’s about you coming to your “senses” (i.e. getting completely clear about what you want), making decisive choices and then committing to accountability for your actions.
Coaching is not about us being friends. But don’t worry, I am a friendly guy! Family and friends will always be there to listen and support you, but they may not challenge you to go deep enough and make the necessary changes to transform your life. While well-meaning, your friends usually just want to hear, “What happened?”
As your coach I want to help you move forward, not remain stuck in the past.
Sometimes I have to risk asking you an uncomfortable question, or one that pushes your buttons. Discomfort is often where the seed of growth lives. However, coaching is a safe space, one without judgement, and you have my complete support and acceptance of you and your journey. Should you dare to risk going deep within, the reward of self-discovery is the greatest transformation of all.
Ultimately the more you understand yourself, your needs, patterns and behaviours, your strengths and weaknesses, your “why” for what you want to truly accomplish in life, the more you can make choices about what you want to do, instead of unconsciously reacting to what has always been.
