WHY COACHING MATTERS
When I first heard about coaching, I thought it wasn't necessary. I could fly solo in my development, right? Life situations were enough to guide my growth, right?
I simply didn't know what I was missing. Life situations started to lead me. Blind spots and unconscious patterns took root and began to have their way with me. It was so subtle at first that I didn't even notice.
Then everything got real when I realized I was able to access my fears more quickly than my joy.
Despite all the life transitions, relationships, and development opportunities, I wasn't actually embedding the learning into practice and interrupting the patterns unconsciously leading me. I was just repeating the same old cycle with a new experience, new person, new activity, new workout, new career, or new adventure.
I took great pride in my busy schedule. I filled my calendar with all.the.things and all.the.people so I didn't have to slow down. I was afraid of what I'd see.
I was choosing unconscious comfort rather than conscious courage. I was playing small but inside, I was squirming. I knew it was time to know myself. It was time to start listening to those inner nudges I'd been ignoring or dismissing. I knew there was more to learn & more to give too.
So I hired my first coach 15 years ago when navigating a major intersection of life, career, and relationship transitions. My awareness deepened, my actions became more focused, I wasted less time, and strengthened my conviction to show up differently, to live differently.
Coaching still brings me back home to myself, empowering me to make choices in life, love, and leadership for my highest good rather than just what's comfortable and feels good in the moment.
