“Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference.”
― John Wooden
Why Do I Need a Personal Consultation?
Many people ask themselves this question only to dismissively conclude that the answer is that they don’t need a coach. But highly successful people always seem to have a different take on the issue. ‘If a personal consultant can help me win – I want one – because I want to win.’
One response is particularly interesting – “I don’t seem to have time anymore.” The first implication of this ‘defense’ is that life has become so crammed with other stuff that learning has been squeezed out. We have become too busy to learn – rather like saying that I am too busy driving to have the time to stop for gas.
The most successful people seem to have more hours in their days than ‘normal folk’. They have time for coaching, learning and a rich range of other personal interests. So what is the major block for other people?
Effective personal consultation can make “all the difference” between a career of mediocrity and one of excellence and undreamed-of accomplishments. Coaching is all about making a difference – all about tapping into the value of the knowledge and experience of others to open your own possibilities.
The very idea that you don’t have to ‘go it alone’ is central to this formulation – but the really important message is that you deserve (you are worth) the support of an experienced consultant. Take this single step and a world of new opportunities appears – like the proverbial lotus flower, it will open before your eyes. The value of a supportive ‘world-view not my own’ becomes evident and empowering.
