As I reflect on my coaching challenges with clients in 2020, I think about several people who had difficulty taking the first step to make real (and necessary) changes in their business and/or personal lives.
Taking the first step can be the hardest. For some, it’s simply a lack of motivation. You may be very comfortable where you are and therefore, the motivation to change is simply not big enough.
For others, it’s fear. People fear trying new things for a variety of reasons. It could be a fear of being rejected or even laughed at by others.
Yes, fear can be overwhelming, but it can be overcome, especially when you have someone by your side. (That’s one of the perks of working with a coach.)
Dig deep and maybe you’ll conclude there’s no need to change. However, if you recognize that change is necessary to avoid being stymied, miserable or even worse off, taking that first step will become a lot easier.
May the new year bring you closer to the life you envision.
