New Decisions – Time to Trust Yourself
When we talk about personal development coaching from Wishfish, we enable you to trust yourself and make great decisions.
I can hear you asking – ‘ yes, but how exactly does personal development coaching from Wishfish help me with this? How do I choose the right development goals and identify the correct life coach courses?’
The answer is relatively straightforward. We make decisions daily – some we consciously think about and others we don’t. What is important is making the right decision for you.
As humans, we are born to solve problems, and as a Life Coach, when I’m working with people during a coaching session, I know that if someone has a problem/issue, they really do have the solution – you have to dig a little deeper for it.
Rest assured, I know from experience that people come up with a solution to any uncertainty they may be experiencing. And more importantly, it is the right decision for them based on where they are in their life at that moment in time.
As you step into the unknown, it does feel a bit scary, but as the saying goes, ‘magic happens outside of your comfort zone’.
So how can I trust myself?
It starts with having a clear head and being able to trust in yourself and use your intuition and judgement as you explore and look for opportunities to ensure you make the right decision. Reminding yourself of what you are good at, what your strengths are, what talents you have, and what qualities you bring to solve your problem are all within us.
Your inner confidence is there – it always has been – your unhelpful chatter might have quietened it.
So how does personal development coaching from Wishfish help?
In a nutshell, it’s about opening the ‘door of opportunity’, which means taking time to really think about what you want, accepting responsibility for yourself, and creating the path to move on. You have to trust yourself, and because you’ve looked at all the options, you can take that leap of faith and make your life happen.
As a Life Coach, I’m always amazed at how creative, brave and trusting people are of themselves and when they start to achieve what they set out to achieve – they say, ‘I wish I’d taken that chance earlier’. But, hey – hindsight is a wonderful thing, right!?! So, my role in Life Coaching is to bring together the reasonable mind and the emotional mind, which creates the wise mind.
With understanding and wisdom, we can make great decisions because we’ve taken the time to slow down, process our thoughts and feelings, and connect with what we know. Then with confidence and self-belief, you can purposefully practice a new way of being because of the new decisions that you have made.
So if you want to create healthy, happy and safe choices, then you have to be able to think straight – which means you have to quieten the chatter going around and around in your head. How do we do this? I can hear you ask. Well, here is a technique that I use to bring you into the present moment so that you can ‘slow down to go faster’. …..
Ground yourself by placing your feet firmly on the floor and then consciously moving your mind down to your feet. Ask yourself – are my feet touching the ground? The answer is yes! So at that moment, you are mindfully present.
Breathe – consciously find where your breath is. You are obviously breathing, but deliberately focusing on your breath means that you are bringing your thoughts to your breath and how you breathe. So once again, taking the chatter away from your thoughts and focusing on you at that moment.
Take three deep belly breaths, consciously slow your thoughts down, and visualise a quiet space in your head where you can see the door of opportunity. With that calm mind, you can make more rational, helpful, healthy, happy and safe decisions.
We at Wishfish care deeply about you making the right decision for you. Avoid the dilemma and the chatter and, with a clear head, make the right decision for you. It can be hard to see the new shoots of growth within us all as our past may block them. Look hard for those green shoots of opportunity and possibility; talk it through to gain clarity and direction on where you head next and be in charge of your own personal development.
