reasons

We all have reasons to “not” doing something.   We live in a society that exacts from us excuses or reasons to avoid experiencing consequences. If reality is misrepresented it might be away of hiding the truth.

Being a victim is another method by which people hide behind the truth.

Hiding the real reasons behind a smokescreen of deception limits our abilities to achieve something grander than ourselves. Now if one person is masking reality then there are millions of others doing the same thing. Each time we hide behind false pretenses we are limiting our growth and the growth of the community and the growth of the society in which we live.

Living behind excuses puts us into a false reality, a reality that is colored by what we think things should be.

What kind of reality are you experiencing today, right now?

What kind of reality do you want?

coaching is for …. most people

Who is coaching for?

It is for people who want to become better at who they are on an accelerated track.  It is not unusual for people who have a coach to have a quantum leap in personal happiness.  This happiness may be driven by achieving more significance in their lives whether it is at home, at work or in the community.

In general most well adjusted people will benefit from having a coach.  There are some though that a coach should not apply their method of Socratic inquiry.  There are some who would benefit from therapy.  Sometimes the trials of life create disappointment and perhaps even period of depression which is beyond the skills, training and expertise of a coach.  There are times when a coach should recommend that a client seek out professional treatment.

For many people the results of their experiences will be in many respects mostly positive.  Life will be good, not great but good.   For a few very motivated people they might even rise to the level that someone who is coached would attain but that would be a rare occurrence.

Often we don’t know what would generate a quantum leap in personal performance.  We might be missing the questions, the discipline or the accountability to go it alone and to find what truly makes us happy.

Looking at the chart we can see time moving along the horizontal axis and as we reach the zenith of our careers, family or community life we should be at some elevation that is higher than it was when we first embarked on our journeys.   As our story unfolds we should see things steadily improve as we gain in wisdom in knowledge.  

There are some factors that interrupt our journeys and those could be illness, job loss, family crisis or other significant life events that cause our path to deviate from its planned destination.  There are those who can help people navigate the crisis which helps people with significant interruptions in their journey to reengage with life.  

If there is a desire to fully experience life then think about getting a coach to help you realize your goals.

Karen Lamb said, “A year from now you may wish you had started today.”

Change the world

What if you could change the world what would you do?

What if you could change your country what would you do?

What if you could change the state you live in what would you do?

What if you could change the city you live in what would you do?

What if you could change the community you live in what would you do?

What if you could change the neighborhood you live in what would you do?

What if you could change yourself what would you do?

You can change the world when you can change yourself. What is bigger than you are? Your neighborhood, your community, your city, your state, your country and your world are bigger than you and they require your talents, your dreams, and your input.

What can you do to change the world, change yourself? What would you like to change today? What can you change today? What is stopping your from making that change?

Gandhi said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world”.
