You don't need a coach.

personal development Aug 17, 2020

Of course you don't. You're fine just the way you are.

If you're content to remain that way, you definitely do not need a coach.

And yet...

Some of us recognize that although we're sufficient as we are, we can't stop striving to be better. Where we are is okay, but it's not our final destination.

Do you seek excellence in yourself and your endeavor? How are you pursuing these?

One thing for sure, what got you where you are won't get you where you want to go.

What got you where you are will keep you there.

To continue making progress, you must continue to cultivate new relationships and routines.

Myriad forces conspire against this effort when you try to do it on your own, including confirmation bias, rationalization, attachment to unhealthy narratives, imposter syndrome, Resistance, the lizard brain, and cognitive dissonance (to name a few).

What's the cost of not getting help in gaining clarity about your goals and a strategy for achieving them? How much more of your valuable time and attention are you going to waste stuck and unable to see how you're getting in your own way? Why are you collecting dots when someone is ready to help you start connecting them?

When are you going to stop making excuses and start stepping into possibility?

Doing work that matters doesn't have to be so exhausting and lonely. It's time to endeavor better. You can thrive as you strive. 

Working with the right coach gets you guided and going with the difference only you can make. 

No, you don't need a coach. But if you really want to develop yourself and excel in your endeavors, you very well may want one
