For years I have been called on for advice. Family, friends, relatives of friends, friends of friends, co-workers and strangers. I started getting calls requesting "sessions" with me. I realized then my talent and passion was in helping people. I've always loved listening to people's life stories, getting to know them, listening to what makes them tick, and generally peering into someone else's perspective on life. I developed a keen listening ability. That coupled with always playing "devils advocate" trained me to see the other side of the coin in situations being discussed. When being called on for advice, those skills are the reasons I became a wholeness life coach.
As with anyone though, we struggle with self-doubt. Sometimes it can be crippling to the point where we don't move. We get clouded about the next steps to take so we become paralyzed. This is where I currently reside, a state of paralysis, wondering what's the next move. It seems an oxymoron to be a wholeness coach, but you're in need of coaching. And I tend to be a bit critical of myself when I think of that fact. But always in my unique fashion, I flip to the other side of the coin. Instead of criticizing, and doubting, I'm going to help myself in the way only I know how.
The same listening ear I give to others, I'm giving to myself. The ability to help others recognize habits that are no longer beneficial for them, I'm going to help myself realize. The advice I've provided to countless others to help them move past shackling issues, I'm giving to myself. I'm deciding to dive deep within myself for my own continual path to wholeness.
We're forever expanding and constantly having new life experiences therefore there will always be times when we need to check in with ourselves, listen, identify the roadblock or hindrance and develop a strategy to regain balance and move past it. So here I go, sitting on my own "couch" for coaching. I'm ready.
