It has been said by many people, myself included, that we are our own worst critics and enemies. Why is that?
I believe it is a combination of personal pride, personal investment costs and a deep belief that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing. But what I have found is that when we combine the pride, the investment costs and and our belief that we are right, it is exponentially hard to change our course and make tough decisions.
That’s where having a life coach can come in handy. I believe that life coaches can create clarity in each and every situation.
But why is clarity important?
clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity.
Creates Focus. It is no surprise that one of my main workshops utilizes the word FOCUS as the basis of the message, but that is because it, focus, is so important in finding your way. But even simpler, having focus in your life and only putting your energy into the things that matter leads to clarity.
Demands Decisions. Just like when you’re packing your dorm room at the end of the year or moving to a new house, or even just doing spring cleaning, leading a clear life demands decisions. And the faster the better. The more you think about things, the cloudier your thought process. My friend, Sam Davidson, wrote a book about making decisions about stuff that is worth taking a look at.
Forms a Simple Blueprint. Finally, as you gain some focus on what matters in your life and you start to make some decisions, a blueprint begins to come into focus. From here, you’re able to take this simple blueprint and build a plan, and then a life around it.
