‘IT’ can be anything from the meaning of life to the pay rise you think you deserve but haven’t really merited. Be real with your mindset and expectations will never be too far ahead of your abilities. No one can coach you into a successful person per say, into a ‘go-getter’ etc. Coaches who are good at their job give you the necessary ‘space’ to work out your own issues and needs. They don’t diagnose them for you. You have to do that for yourself. You have want to ‘work it out’. If not….read on.

We don’t like the idea of having to work ‘it’ out because:

  • We prefer to have things handed to us rather than have to work for them
  • Anything that challenges our need to be right automatically makes us disinterested 
  • The idea of having to expend energy on pursuits that we can’t guarantee a selfish personal outcome for is beyond our imagination let alone our grasp 
  • We would prefer to continue in ignorance rather than face the task of hard work, effort and sacrifice that may change both our mindset and worldview 
  • We want to believe that things are the are the they way are even if they are causing us no great benefit as human beings 
  • We struggle with what we don’t immediately understand
  • We will follow the crowd under the assumption that others are doing what we would have done had we be in the position of decision maker
  • If there is no apparent need for effort, we see that as evidence for us to leave matters as they are
  • If others have worked it out, then we can copy them 
  • Working it out means we have to act and we generally don’t like being put on the spot to do so
