I suspect like you, I too, have learnt that there’s power in asking for help. It shows those around us that we are real, and that others can call on us when they need love, support or a kick in the ass. Love and support is symbiotic, but that’s another topic for another day.
I have a couple friends who are reading this right now and will be calling me out on asking for help because I have a survivalist pattern and don’t always ask for help when I need it. But this was serious. This was my life, my heart, my health, my spirit … and so I built myself a posse. A posse of key people who helped keep me on task, who caught me when I fell, who cheered me on, and who held up my mirror. And you guessed it, one of my key posse members was my professional development coach. I embraced a space where I could dream without limitations and he supported, encouraged and believed in me. Now don’t get me wrong, he corrected the course and the work wasn’t easy.
What I can say about the process was that while it was challenging at times, it was incredibly rewarding. I was putting my energy into designing my life with someone who was simply showing me how to tap into me.
Once I uncovered my true passion – helping people see and be their best selves – I enrolled in a whole person coaching program and learned how to coach people through any and everything. While I was being coached myself, and learning to coach, I developed my own whole person coaching style.
Typically when we are unsettled in an area in our life there are reasons and stories that can speak directly to the unrest. And this is where my whole person coaching style comes into play. I love helping people uncover their beliefs because they reveal a potential that is suddenly front and centre.
What we don’t realize is that when we are “stuck” we are listening to beliefs, experiences and stories that simply need to be re-composed, and until then personal growth will remain out of reach. This is why I love life coaching – I get to witness growth that is wrapped in personal fulfillment. Change that has people waking up and enjoying life. Change that finds people in love. Change that is empowering and life long.
