My new life coach

I am more than thrilled with my new life coach. It has been an amazing journey and learning experience so far. She magically pulls the right triggers. Somehow she seems to knock down my defensive shields I have built over so many years. How does she do that? That’s difficult to say. I can’t recognize a clear strategy. What seems to be key is that she is brutally honest.  That’s not always easy but I know I can count on it. The other thing I really enjoy is that she is the most patient listener I have ever met. I can just talk and she will listen patiently and attentively.  I honestly feel that I can trust her. Whatever we discuss stays absolutely between us.  She simply is what she is, nothing more nothing less. Through her I have a taste of what it means to access one’s potential, which I heard so many times before.

If there is one thing I can complain about, it is that she is not always very professional. She never seems to stick to the agreed hours.  She can even be a little inhumane sometimes when she decides to coach me in the middle of the night at 4am in the morning. She doesn’t seem to care much about my comfort needs.  But hey, you can’t get it all. Overall, it is more than worth it. I have learnt more in the last few weeks than in the last couple of years. I have the strange feeling that our daughter Alisa Melis, born on the 16th October of this year, will challenge me in many more ways!  She shows me how to just to be me and access sides of me I didn’t know exist.

How is this relevant to you?

Firstly, life seems to give us amazing opportunities to learn and grow, if we are open to it. I guess most people would agree that becoming a parent is a very powerful way of growing.

Secondly, childlike honesty, openness, authenticity and being true to yourself seem to be powerful tools for personal growth and success. Well, coincidentally this is what Unitive®   coaching is basically about.

Consequently, if you value your personal growth, would like to realize more of your potential and like to be on the fast track you could:

1)    Consider becoming a parent, if you are not already one. A small warning here, at a daily rate of 12-14 nappies this can be a costly experience (if you are a parent you know what I am talking about) or maybe

2)    Test a coaching journey with one of our Unitive® coaches.
