People ask me, “So, how does coaching work?” I tell them, “Well, I ask you questions until the answer is ‘I don’t know.’ That’s where the coaching begins.” I enjoy getting to the point where something new must be created. I love the unknown. My purpose in life is to be a catalyst. I feel called to get things done. My greatest joy is seeing people move from having a stalled life to a dynamic one.
I invest a lot of time into volunteer efforts. As the Immediate Past President of the Christian Coaches Network International and as the leader of the ICF Ethics Community of Practice, I feel that I am helping the coaching industry take shape and move forward – blazing new trails. I like to refer to myself as a mover and a shaker.
What This Means for You
You’ve read stories of people that break free to explore the wilderness. They go on journeys, adventures, and expeditions. They’re neither crazy, nor foolish – just full of life.
Charles A. Lindbergh experienced fear, famine and fame. For thirty-three and a half hours he flew – alone. Yet Lindbergh was the first person to be in New York one day, and Paris the next.
“Life without risks is not worth living.”
~Charles A. Lindbergh
That’s what you want… a life worth living.
What holds you back?
Finding an excuse is easy. Finding a calling is critical.
What is your calling? What is your destiny? Your dream?
What will you be first at? Different at? Great at? What holds you back from trying?
Take a chance on yourself.
Live that dream. Start that business. Write that novel. Get that degree. Climb that mountain. Travel the country in an RV. Float the Colorado River. Run in the Boston Marathon. Yes.
