yes-238375_1280 pixabayHow do you know if you would benefit from partnering with a life coach? One of the ironies of life is that we don’t know what we don’t know! This means it is hard for us to identify how coaching could make the challenges we are experiencing easier. Life coaching uses questions and mirroring to aid connection with what we already know about our strengths and desires, but have not made fully conscious. Partnering with a life coach brings forth insights that make the possibilities that are the best fit for us easier to identify. This allows for accelerated progress overcoming challenges and increased personal development.

garden-gnome-free - piaxabayWhat are the things that bother you? We all know the things that we dislike doing. Here are the key ones that sometimes get to me, and five possible ways to minimize their impact.

Irritating interactions: Spending time with maddening individuals. People who rub you up the wrong way because of their opinions, requests, or behaviors.

On the one hand, you could just choose not to spend time on any of the things that get you down, but this would be an abdication of responsibility and may take advantage of others who would have to pick up the pieces.

It is also totally up to you whether you choose to engage with others and play for a while by their rules. Have you ever thought about what your personal game of life looks like? What do you have to do to win? How might you lose and what are the rules you are playing by?

My game of life is not based on chance. It is about taking the time to identify the growing edge and then asking the questions that move it forward. My overall strategy has four stages. Continue reading
