Sometimes I find it hard to explain to people what life coaching is because there is so much that we do that I often get tongue-tied thinking of just one way to describe it. After reading this in Tim Ferriss’s Tribe of Mentors. I felt like I had to share it the world.
“If I accept you as you are, I make you worse, however if I treat you as though you are capable of becoming I help you become that.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In my practice, when I see clients for the first time, I see them as the end product- the way they will be in the future. They are all beautiful. What stands between who they are and who they want to be is their willingness to change strong habits, belief systems, and the gracefulness to embrace a new way of living. I aid them in their pursuit of change and liberation from unwanted habits.
My best investment was spending money on mentors and personal education. I’ve spent time and energy to learn how to effectively help every person who walks through my door.
My best investments to date were when I worked on my personal development such as mediation, this coaching/leadership development program and worked on my well being. Filling the cup is so important in life.
Being of service is great but when the airplane comes crashing down you need to be able to put on your masks first before helping others put on their masks.
I hope everyone had some rest this extended Holiday weekend! Cheers to everyone out there pushing themselves and conquering their fears to reach their dreams. If you aren’t, give me a call 😛
