You can’t get where you want to go if you haven’t at least told yourself where you want to go.Sophie rings in the new year by outlining Five Steps to Set up an Intention (as opposed to those annoying New Years’ resolutions that we seldom stick with), deliberately choosing the thoughts that float around in our heads all day long to create an experience that is what we want, rather than what we are used to.
Deciding to use a coach to assist you through change is a great first step.Sophie offers tips on how to identify the right coach, someone who is caring, yet serves as an objective and pragmatic second voice to walk with you offering challenges and different perspectives in the mix.Go beyond chemistry and choose a coach who can tell the truth without blaming or judging, is flexible, and accomplished in his/her own goals.
Not telling the truth lowers our self esteem, and feeds the idea that we are a fraud.Even if those little white or shades of grey lies are intended to protect ourselves or those we care for, we get trapped.Sophie discusses the importance of not concealing, withholding or overlooking, but telling the truth, and a process for us to maintain our integrity and stay level when an emotional crossroad appears.
