I work with people in 2 main ways – coaching and writing (my first book is imminent!)
I want everyone I work with to get the results they desire and that isn’t always going to be the case. (My inner straight A student hates this).
You see reading about a problem is like reading a travel guide. The book is filled with hints, tips, and suggestions.
Hiring a coach is a bit like having a tour guide, they can help you navigate potential pitfalls and overcome obstacles along the way. They can also be next level accountability partners.
However reading a book is vastly different from going on the trip yourself.
While information is crucial, transformation is experiential.
Transformation is not simply ‘before and after’ like so many of the books sells us.
What happens after the after?
Integration.
This is purely your own path, and while you can walk alongside others, you are truly on your own path.
Reading a book won’t substitute for real world action.
Hiring a coach won’t make you take action.
Trust me, your coach could message you, phone you, email you and you can ignore them.
You can skip your sessions.
Coaches aren’t magicians they can’t do the work for you.
A coaching relationship is truly transformational when it’s a co-creation.
Which means you need to show up.
The full gamut of change involves information, transformation, and integration.
It’s not always going to go the way you read in the book, or the way your coach advised you.
There are going to be detours, and breakdowns and side trips.
But if you keep taking action, you will reach your breakthrough.
Your path is unique.
While support can make it faster, smoother and a hell of a lot more fun.
You still have to make the journey on your own x
