How are you
treating life today?
If the above statement didn't make your mind
tilt slightly to the left - reread it. It is
important to the reality concept we are going to discuss
Last week I stopped asking people "How's life
treating you, Bob?"
I now say "Bob, how are you treating life?"
Although the words are the same, the order and
therefore the meaning have very different implications.
We are talking about a paradigm shift from the
environment affecting you to a bolder/ stronger
viewpoint of you affecting the environment. This new
position is one of taking responsibility. That is what
coaching to Live
Intentionally is all about.
This shift in my greeting happened recently after I was
reintroduced to quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson,
"The ancestor to every action is a
thought." What we truly believe and think
manifests in our actions. This concept, combined with
the reframing of a situation, forms the basis for many
coaching techniques. In the next issue of Reality
Concepts we will address this circle of thought and
action more closely.
"How are you treating
life?" This little question has so much
power. As a coach, I have found that the response
tells me instantly what state of mind someone is really
in. It also tells me what impact they are having on their
own situation and how much control they have in their
life. It is not meant just to change the standard
greeting, but it is meant to provoke and reframe the
way we interact with the world.
How are YOU treating
What do you think about your answer?
How do you want to be treating life?
What would life look like if you chose differently?
I see my role as a coach as being a personal navigator
for people on the journey of life. I act as a catalyst.
By partnering with you to sift through life overload and
determining your strengths, needs, values, and mission
in life - you create and live a life of choice, a life you
I am the navigator, the chart maker, the guide to get
you from where you are now to where you want to be.
You are the pilot, the captain of the ship. You are
building, creating, and sailing toward the life you want.
Coaching is about what you want as the incredibly
resourceful, naturally creative and whole person that
you are. Coaching is not about what I want. Your
journey is unique and at your sole discretion.
All along your journey, through the use of the coaching
conversation, I transfer the art of what I am doing as
a coach - to you:
- How to set the course according to your true
values and beliefs.
- How to trim the sails to the attitude you want in
- How to chart the path to take you to the
destinations where you really want to be.
What journey is your life on? What strengths and values do you have to guide you along the way?
What kind of life do you want to live? How do you want to get there? What will you do when you get
there? What comes next?
