Coaching is always so insightful!
We have so much information presented to us every day on social media, that sometimes it seems everyone else understands things just like we do. Yet when I see a lady have an ‘a-ha’ moment during coaching, I am amazed that the simplest realisations can have such big impacts on us. Me included!
Often our values get pushed aside as we tackle other issues that are more pressing, it could be a new baby and sleepless nights, toddler tantrums, playground tears, teenage issues, marriage problems, in-law tensions, work struggles, health challenges… to mention a few!
Any one of these is so emotionally demanding and can take a lot out of us, and yet some of us have many of them together! And if that isn’t hard enough, often we don’t know what to do when we are presented with a problem. And amidst all this striving, our values get pushed to the back, as other, more pressing ones take over. Often it’s these values that ‘pop up’ during coaching. And ladies stop and blink as it dawns on them that SubhanAllah, this is so important to me, how did I forget this… or even more profoundly, how did I not already know this?
In the next few posts I will be sharing some light-bulb moments that some of my coaching clients have had – simple ‘I already know this’ stuff. Perhaps when reading them you might reflect on them and see how they could help you.
