Life Coach

Had a friend reach out to me, a guy who’s new to coaching, asking whether or not he should pursue a particular client.

“I’m scared that I don’t know what I’m doing yet,” he said. “Any advice?”

“Yeah,” I responded.

“There’s no way to do it. So you do it anyways.”

I explained that with coaching, you lead and guide the client and simply try your best…

And in doing so you fail because you don’t live up to the perfectionist standards your mind has created…

And by not being perfect you succeed.

Action is succeeding, while inaction is failing. There’s nothing else.

He got what I was saying and was ready to take action!

See, we get so caught up in “The How.”

“How do I do it,” we ask ourselves, and then the question becomes a defense mechanism against taking action and ultimately causes us to become so practical that we limit ourselves.

Most people want to do more in life, yet most people are stuck, focusing too much on “the how.”

What if we stopped asking how? What would happen?

It would force us to take action and act as if we already know how.

And as a result, we would fail…

And we would succeed…

And we would feel stupid…

And we would feel great…

And in the end we would come to understand that…

There is no way to action. Action is the way. And action always equals outcome and always leads us to success.

I’ll tell you from personal experience that nothing feels better than being in action. It trumps everything else.
