I am a Coach. To some, a Life Coach; to others, a Work Coach. I spent most of 2012 as a “groupee” of Coaching groups on LinkedIn, posting what seemed relevant for coaching. It made sense at the time. However, December was a month of reflection and preparation, and in that space I felt a change of focus would be best in the New Year.
So again, I am a Coach. And as a Coach I share insights and reflections as I listen and help others navigate to their answers. The “How To’s” of getting what you want in life has a gazillion websites to help one along. Frankly, assisting others as they move through how to’s on their way to their greatness is the easy part.
Defined steps others have used to succeed in reaching their own goals that they now share as ways to your achieving your goals are fine as templates to success, don’t get me wrong. There’s that word again. I have used and continue to use marketing templates, website templates, business model templates, template templates along the way and share them with clients.
However it is not in sameness that individual success lies. Rather it is in the uniqueness that one brings to living, and, for that, there are no templates one can follow. There is only insight and reflection of the perpetual questions:
• What is my purpose?
• What do I want?
• What IS my passion?
This is the searching that leads to answers that make the How To’s work for you. It is your own reflection of others answers to these questions that might ignite a spark to your unique answers.
To that end I researched new groups on LinkedIn with the objective to find where simply sharing insights and thoughts might benefit others. Nothing more. Nothing less. If you have read this far, thank you. If you wish to comment and share your thoughts, please do so I am perpetually seeking signs that this path I am on is the one I am meant to be on.
I will write again whenever there is something to share that might be insightful. Until then, enjoy and Happy New Year.
