Why be happy?
What is it like to be in flow?
How would you be different if you dared to dream?
Where is most of your attention directed?
Who gives you the most pleasure?
I don’t know the answers to these questions, if I knew I would tell you! I promise! What I can do is ask, wait, and create the stillness (sometimes) and/or provocation (when not being stillness) where you can allow yourself a new awareness…an awareness of what might be, possibly, an opportunity for a clue as to the answer.
In other words, a coaching relationship is a paradox. While your coach does not make you do anything, you would not do the thing your coach intends for you to do if she was not there. It is a blend of intention and exploration. You can explore on your own, in the dark, with only your past, your unbridled fears and bias filters to guide you, or you can explore with someone who is skilled at navigating through the unknown terrain. The important thing is, whichever way you decide to do it, enjoy it!

Coaching is based on game theory and can be applied to any arena where humans work and play together. Knowing how to distinguish when someone is lit up and when they are not…and furthermore, having tools to activate the lights, is priceless. You can learn to use the same tools in perception and expression as top-notch sports coaches to internally motivate your team. Coaching is the new management.
If you are curious about reaching your full potential, maybe you want to explore a side business that really excites you. Each person has an activity, environment and talent that when in used in combination with each other, create a ‘flow’ experience. Our day jobs may not provide this experience, however.
