I recently realized that I needed help; I needed a coach. I was stuck in the muck of a personal situation and did not really know how to get out of it. As I coach I know that coaching can really help to open a person up to possibilities and solutions. But when does a coach need a coach? I did. I was afraid to confront a person I love and fear struck my heart each time I envisioned the conversation. I decided to ask for help. My coach helped me to work through the issues and possibilities. As we did I realized that I felt the weight lift off my shoulders, my stomach unclenched and my vision cleared. And, miraculously, I had a plan which later worked. My fear was holding me back.
So who needs a coach?
The better question is who does not need a coach, as we can all improve our lives, businesses, relationships, etc. through coaching.
Think about it, every celebrity or sports figure our society admires, envies, or idolizes has benefited from at least one coach. Tom Brady, Venus Williams, Nicole Kidman, and presidents of companies and countries have all been coached on their business or game, their form, on controlling their emotions or demons which can creep in and cause them to ‘lose’. It only makes sense that each one of us could and would benefit from a coach of our own.
Coaching is about opening yourself up to the possibilities within you, and your coach will walk with you on this path to deeper learning and awareness, and finally to building and transformation.
So when was the last time you dug deep into your soul to ask ‘what do I want’? How long will you wait for it to happen? Why not reach out to a coach?
