I look back, I had my first real need for coaching
when I was 15. I was presented with the ideal
opportunity to do my absolute best. And inexplicably
for me at the time, I just couldn't. Of course back
then, coaching as we know it now had not even started
In our lives we strive to be our 'best'. But not only
do we continuously face our own barriers limiting us,
we are constantly motivated by others to be who they
want us to be. For our own good of course. Over time
that 'best' disappears into a dark black jungle,
which we circle, and prowl around.
Picture a tiger in the night, knowing its prey is
there, but unable to activate it's senses to pinpoint
and go in for the kill.
Coaching offers the opportunity to shine the
strongest and brightest searchlight into that dark
space. To blind it with light, to take stock, and
focus on the hidden treasures we all have. To own
them and to use them. To make them work for us.
Archetypes can be described as the core energies that
influence our personality, our needs, talents and
values. Shining that coaching spotlight on our own
individual set of archetypes helps us focus on the
essence of what we are, to bring balance to it, and
to activate it's real power.
Like having your own council of experts supporting
you, and energising you with the power to really be
your own absolute best.
