A business woman walks in and sits down.
This lady has never had coaching before and is clearly nervous.
Within half an hour they have told me their life story and probably every embarrassing thing that is rattling around in their head that;
Wind the coaching session on about 25 minutes from that moment and they are starting to really understand what is impacting on their life and not just what they could do about it but why it’s imperative they do it.
And I’ve found myself more and more noticing that so many women do this…
I could go on, however the point is that we look at other people’s mistakes, faux pas, and cock ups and we forgive them. We accept they are human and that mistakes happen.
Flip that around and look at the same mistakes, faux pas’s and cock ups and in your own life and boy can you get harsh!
If you don’t know how to fix this discrepancy that could be costing you dearly start with these thoughts;
“If I can continue to assume that I have to be perfect then what am I saying I expect from my children?”
“For what reason is it okay to make mistakes at work but not make mistakes with parent hood?”
“For what reason(s) do I expect perfection and what impact(s) is it having on me, my life and my goals?”
You see ultimately no one gets through life without making a few mistakes and as long as you keep beating yourself up about them then guess what it will do to you, your actions and your results?
And lastly aim to remember what happened in 1 area in your life on 1 day – not everyone in the world knows about it – so stop acting as if they do – it’s killing your success rate, happiness and fun!
