Are you ready for Life Coaching?
So often in life, there is a tremendous discrepancy between what we say we want and what (if anything) we demonstrate our commitment to having. When these two things are aligned, the world is our oyster, and we experience life as a continual unfolding of positive challenges and pleasant rewards. When they are out of sync, we experience struggle, helplessness, depression and despair. Why is committing to what we really want to have in our life so important?
In the words of Scottish historian and adventurer W H Murray:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way."
Each of us has all the resources and
strength we need deep within us to live empowered and
fulfilled lives - sometimes we just need a little help
in accessing them and using them to our full advantage. Ask yourself what
you would do differently if you knew you couldn't fail,
and what you need to get you to act on that conviction. A life coach
will help you achieve it. To find out if you are
ready for life coaching, you might like to have a look
at the coachability index below.
