Coaching is a gift and a very powerful tool that is useful for different areas of life. The partnership created with the coach is one that can facilitate the discovery of life purpose which will help in creating a compelling vision and mission for living; thus a Clear expectation can be set. The client’s present Location or current reality will be identified and acknowledged. The gaps between destination and current location can then be Analysed and the blocking monsters like some of what have been discussed in the article are unveiled and dealt with. Goals can be Redefined and the client encouraged to Intentionally commit to action and staying Focused and following through on commitments. What this creates is Your authentic self, achieving success on your own terms. That is what I call CLARIFY to SUCCEED.
The issues identified here are by no mean exhaustive neither are the suggested solutions. They however provide a starting point and creating awareness around these issues. I am sure that everyone’s list of monsters will be different and unique in their combination. I sincerely hope that people are willing and able to face these monsters and get them out of the way of creating success on their own terms!
