Have you ever been at an unfamiliar mall and tried looking for a map? Once you get there, you look for the spot on the map that reads You are here. By looking around at your surroundings, you can see what’s near you and what’s a little further away. What you can’t see are all those stores and restaurants in the distance. That’s where the map comes in handy. It’s a great tool for seeing what else is in the mall and how far away you are from all those places.
Having an awareness of exactly where you are is important. Knowing where you want to go is just as important, but you need to have a map of sorts, a plan, and the will to go where you said you wanted to go. Coaching is a lot like this mall scenario. Coaching clients are sometimes stuck and can’t figure out where they are or why they’re stuck. That’s the ideal time to seek the support of a Life Coach who can listen intently and ask relevant questions to assess exactly where you are and why you’re stuck there. Together, you and your coach can begin to get you unstuck and moving in the direction of your goal. It’s not easy, but an investment in your future is priceless. As always, we’re Better Twogether.
