My internal dialogue began to come alive as more and more people finished the game and watched me and a few others begin to pull the hair out of our head. “I could use a life coach right now”, I thought as the game went on endlessly. “I am going to be the last person sitting here figuring this cotton pickin’ thing out.” “My wife is going to laugh her head off at this one”, I began to muse. Fortunately, the facilitator ended the game before the last few of us were finished and spared the remaining contestants some pain and embarrassment…but not much.
What was the point of this exercise? Well, there were a couple of things that shook out during our debriefing afterward. First, acknowledge your internal dialogue and how you treat yourself. OK, got that one for sure. Secondly, think outside the box. There is more than one way to do something. Frequently, as I coach business executives there is a “right way” to do something and some rigidity around change and evolving models of productivity. I was speaking the other day to a client who wants to lose some weight. However, they just can’t “find a way to do it”. We searched Google for “weight loss” and came up with over 333 million results. “How to” is never the problem. There is always a solution, always a way to accomplish something you truly intend to achieve.
A Comment on Christian Life Coaching
Are you considering a life coach? Perhaps, you are past consideration and actually thinking about life coach certification. Well, whether you want a life coach in Birmingham, Alabama or Australia or Canada or the UK…we would be glad to talk to you about being a life coach. Personally, my introduction to life coaching came through a family crisis. It moved my wife and me to take committed action for our child but also for us. Frankly, we believed we were saving a child but it turned out that we were saving ourselves…and a child.
Everyone seeks to conquer what challenges their life in some fashion. You may address your pain or limiting beliefs with determination to change by planning a new strategy, asking a friend for support or seeking power from the divine. Perhaps, you are tired of being so tactically aggressive about your personal development and are seeking a new attitude through meditation or relaxation. Whether you are looking for more money, wealth or are going through a career transition…don’t give up. You can be happy, successful and build the life of your dreams.
