I hired myself a coach last week.
It was the best decision of 2017.
Now, I feel aligned, happy, excited and ready to take on 2018.
But, here’s the thing.
It took me an entire year to make that decision.
I got stuck.
I was so stuck, it took me an entire year to realize I was stuck.
So, what did I do?
Got myself unSTUCK.
I (S) – took a stop. I got out my STUCK journal and took several long breaths.
I (T) told myself I was stuck on self-righteousness and fear, and allowed myself just to sit with those feelings for a bit.
I (U) uncovered a many beliefs, some of which included:
- I believe I can do this on my own!
- I believe a coach won’t be able to help me.
- I believe I’m going to waste my money.
- I believe a coach won’t meet my expectations.
Of the many things I (C) considered, one was hiring coach and another was considering she won’t let me down.
And so I did.
And was blown away by our first meeting.
I (K) told myself it was “OK” that I got stuck on self-righteousness and fear. It happens, right?
Getting stuck not only held me back professionally, it held me back personally.
And it affected my personal relationships.
It affected how I was feeling in my house.
But now, more than ever, I feel aligned, excited, and ready to take on 2018!
I am on a high!!!
This wouldn’t have happened had I not taken the time to sit down with someone more experienced than I in business, someone who would listen to me, someone with whom I could bounce ideas off of, and someone from whom I could gain new insights.
Don’t make the same mistake as I.
Consider hiring yourself a coach today.
(And contact me if you want that coach to be me.)
