In life, who gives us grades and reports on how we are living?
Who tells us how we are progressing?
And who would be able to review how well we are doing at our life purpose?
Can you do that with full honesty and be unbiased?
Asking the questions to get the hard truth:
The reality is we don’t stop long enough to even ask the easy questions. We’re busy doing things. Following our schedule. Even if we had the time most people wouldn’t ask the hard questions because the answers scare us. We know what could come out or at least the feeling behind it.
- That longing for something more.
- That icky feeling of knowing you’re not fully satisfied.
- That small spark for something you were once passionate about.
Saying the hard truth:
Someone tells you honestly how they see something even if it may hurt you. It’s the truth. Often what we’re ignoring. But when a friend or family member says it, it’s hard to see it as a kind thing to do. The issue is that time and time again we don't want to hurt someone or we don't think it's our place to say anything. So we don't and our friend continues to go down the same path, completely unaware.
So then how do you do it? How do you get to the point where you can find the hard truth and turn it around to bring satisfaction into every area of your life?
I don’t usually write a lot about what I do as a coach, but what I’ve been finding is that what I do isn’t always clear. Especially because there are so many aspects to what a coach does. So many reasons why people hire a coach. And so many possible results that our clients enjoy.
Asking the hard truth is just one tool of hundreds that I have in my belt. Also, it can be used in one of the three principles I was trained to use or in a mix of all three.
Well enough coach training talk! Back to why you should care about the hard truth.
Not knowing where you’re at does catch up to you. One day it could just smack you in the face with a situation you’re now in or one that you’ve missed. I have my own hard truth that I have faced. Taking it in small bites is easier to swallow. The beauty is that the hard truth could be that you’re rocking it! But until you’re asked you don’t know.
I'd like to ask you those questions. Want me to? If you're ready I have three 1:1 coaching spots out of 12 that are now available. These only open up a few times a year, so for those serious about getting clarity, results and increasing satisfaction, I'd like to talk to you. We'll chat to see if we're a fit. I'm looking for committed women who are ready to make some movement. Let me know if that's you.
