"It is what a man thinks of himself that really determines his fate."
Henry David Thoreau
Commitment makes something out there that you want real. Until you commit to something, it's just wandering around in the flotsam and jetsam of your mind. Here today, gone tomorrow. But once you commit to a goal, everything changes. But how do you commit? The human mind is a tricky, slippery thing and we are often our worst critics and saboteurs. We want something new; we try for a little while and then get pulled off course. New Years Eve Resolutions anyone? So what goes wrong? Oh let me count the ways. But one of the big reasons we don't stick with something is we don't have a true commitment and we don't have someone holding us accountable.
Coaching is a safe place to formulate and discuss dreams and goals, to share strategies and concerns. It is a place to find the bridge between where you are currently and where you would love to be. And importantly it means no more waiting on external circumstances- you become the driver in your own life. Declaring an intention with a coach draws that energy to you. The human mind is a powerful thing. It can really speed things up or slow them down to a halt. Do you know how to harness it? I do. As a coach I hold clients to their highest good. That means I hear the desires of my clients and hold them to achieving them. Together we formulate a plan of attack and then with coaching, the client has the tools and know how and will to get the job done, to reach for that golden space that before seemed so far away. Are you in?
