This quote was in my facebook feed a couple weeks ago. Of course, it made me think of coaching. I'm also currently taking a class called "Change your Questions, Change your Results" and it is fascinating. I will be discussing that more in future posts, but it ties in nicely with this quote. How difficult is it to change our thinking, though?
About a week later, this cartoon popped up. It took me right back to the quote because it's a good illustration of the danger of certain patterns of thinking. One of the biggest benefits of coaching is unlocking your brain so that you can see an issue from a different perspective and therefore begin to change habits of thinking that don't serve you or the situation. Can you think of a time that your thinking got in your way? I can help you recognize patterns of thought that hinder your progress toward a goal. Once you recognize negative self-talk and thought patterns, you can begin to change your mindset and move toward a more ideal version of yourself.
