You know, when you're driving somewhere and you go there all the time and so you go the same way every time you go there? And sometimes you don't even realize what you saw on the journey! You just got in your car and went there because it's so autopilot, right?
Because you just go there every day, drive the same direction, you don't really notice things. You're just in your head and then all of a sudden, you're there and you don’t even remember driving there. So then maybe Waze or somebody will say, “Hey, you know, will you go that way so you can pick up something for me?” And so it'll force you to go a different way. And when you do that, you see things you never would have. There's different choices and options and streets. And that's kind of how coaching is.
It's like you can keep doing the same thing over and over and working hard and having good intentions and sometimes when it isn't working, you need to have that “Waze” pop in and say, go this way, try this, go that direction. You're still going to get to that destination, but maybe it'll bring you something else that you hadn't thought of. Because in your own sphere you just can't think of it.
I've definitely had this where just having another perspective has helped me. Get an “aha moment” within myself by seeing it another way. Just one of the benefits of having a coach. So many people are so close to doing what they want to do and it could be just a tiniest little thing and boom, you’re there! I would love to help you get to be where you want to be. Feel free to reach out and let me know if you have questions.
