Have you ever been faced with challenges and then you tell yourself you will figure it out. And you are so dead bent on figuring it out and sorting this out because it's well - not working.
I remember when I was a programmer eons ago that I would spent days solving a programming code or bug and it was intense. I am not usually one who would ask for help so I would literally spent hours upon hours - sometimes even dreaming of codes LOL and I actually do get some of my solution to my programming problems in my sleep!! Yes - this is a topic for another day. Solutions in your sleep....
Back to the topic on figuring it out. So that's essentially me and back to now. With my internet business, I tend to have technical challenges that needs to be resolved or tweaking stuff etc and it does get intense figuring out what to do and how to do it technically. I am not exactly technically challenged as I have my background eons ago as a programmer but still... that was a long time ago and sometimes it is frustrating.
What I have learned lately is to be more open for help. Like in the past, I spent lots of time figuring things out myself, spent days in frustration solving a problem when actually, there is always help available. I was just to proud to reach for help.
And now I do - I mean when I can't figure things out on my own, I will reach for help and the strange thing is - when the student is ready - the teacher appears. So I have had help in many different forms - sometimes its my colleagues - if I was back in corporate, but lately its really help in many different forms - people I know. My mentors, coaches.
Btw, I do have many coaches - even right now. As a coach - you need constant coaching as well as you need to be constantly developing yourselves in so many different areas.
Well, the moral of the story. You don't have to figure out on your own. And really sometimes - it's hard to figure things out that you don't even know. My famous quote is
"You don't know what you don't know"
so how do you figure out if your sales presentation is good enough or your convincing skill is at top notch.
How do you figure out if you had make any mistakes in that interview when you don't even know you had made a mistake? So my point is - you really don't know ... and unless you have someone - a coach to guide you. You will never really know.
You don't know if you are doing it right in the first place. And in the case of a sales presentation - the opportunity is gone. Same with interviews. In cases like these, you can't afford to waste time to figure it out on your own. You need help to course correct and to course correct quickly so that you perfect the skills to optimise success.
That's when a coach comes in handy...

Refer to this article on coaching from Life Coach Training. Because how can you put a figure to happiness? How much would you associate the cost of being happy and joyful? It cannot be measured. It's more than being able to get that job promotion which gives you $X amount or close the sale which gives you $Y amount.
Coaching is holistic and elevate you to the next level. It is transformational. You become a much better version of yourself, happier, confident, and standing in your power to take on the world. Now how much is that worth?
