I have learned that I enjoy getting uncomfortable as it pushes me to think outside the box to learn something new. I have taken a lot of heat for this however. Many do not understand my career choices for one.
However, I have also realized, many do not like getting uncomfortable. Sometimes I feel like you can lead someone and although they say, I am on board. I want this path… they don’t really.
Not only that but it hurts my heart as a coach because you know it’ll help them but you know you also have to let them process this on their own.
As a coach, you get to work with many different types of individuals. It’s fascinating. You get to work with people who really want change and are willing to make the leap but more often than not, you are working for people who know they should change, but won’t.
It’s frustrating. You are just there to support and be on the journey with them.
