the experience

“To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”  Confucius

The difference you could have as you live out your everday life could be realized by making a fundamental change in thinking.   Become a top performer, be the best you that you can possibly be and start living the life you desire.   It is your life, what do you want it to be? 

  In an article written by Rajesh Setty , Rajesh explains the values of having a coach to move you forward in your life.   Coaching  is about moving people forward along their journey through life in a way that supports “who” they are.   It doesn’t mean that “coaching” is easy, it can be a lot of work, and not in a sense of slaving at work, but being passionately engaged in discovering exactly what you want.   I’ll let Rajesh explain,

#17 Engage with a coach

“Let me see. What I really mean is we should seriously engage with one or more mentors or coaches for our life and business. Sports people have had this figured out for a long time. It works and we just have to experience it to believe it.

In my last post, I talked about needing to ask the right questions. The right coaches are great at doing this. I have three mentors/coaches and am fortunate to have been associated with them for years. Every interaction I have had with a coach has been fascinating, to say the least.

Many times the issue that started the discussion is not even the real issue that I was supposed to address. Coaches are great at getting to the bottom of things by asking the right questions.

 The beauty of a good coaching relationship is that coaches have no agenda of their own in this relationship except to make us more effective. If you observe any other relationship, there are multiple agendas at play.

Many of my friends who were former skeptics and cynical about what a coach could do to their life now say that their relationship with a coach has made a significant impact on their lives.

Once again, this is one of the long-term projects that you should undertake. Although possible, don’t expect to see instant results the day you have a meeting with your new coach. It takes a long time, but the rewards are sweet and substantial.”

Make the dramatic discovery about what coaching can do for you.   What your life transform and grow in ways that you’ve have only dreamed about.
