I grew up in a commercial fishing family on the coast of Maine. My grandfather was a mentor to me both spiritually and in life. He was hardworking and extremely successful no matter which type of fishing he was engaged in based on the particular season. He had a crew of seven when we were catching herring for the sardine factory, a crew of two for lobstering and a crew of three when dragging for ground fish. When I was young (age 7-20) I was most of the time one of those crew members.
Gramp didn’t know failure, maybe set backs but never failure. However, he had to go after success it never came to him. How about you, are you determined to find success in your endeavors, no matter the odds? Finding and then catching fish for the income to support his crew and family was never a sure thing but his never accepting failure attitude inevitably yielded success.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO TO KEEP YOURSELF IN THE GAME? SUCCESS ISN’T GOING TO COME LOOKING FOR YOU!
As coach, I can help. Is it time to get going again?
I love the quote in the graphic below because it prompted my mind and opened the doors to my heart many years ago when I was in desperate straits. By accepting this concept and thought from British Poet Lord Byron, I believed it and was able to find a positive way forward out of my very difficult circumstances of that period.
Coaching is all about looking forward and discovering a way to close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. Coaching doesn’t deal with the past that is psychoanalysis. Coaching isn’t advising, that is counseling or consultancy. A coach listens deeply for your own inner wisdom and enlightens your ability to decide for yourself.
Are you in a place that looks very bleak and you can’t see a way forward? Without doubt there is hope available and coaching is an aid to finding that hope.
This is my very first post. I intend to start developing relevant and up to date articles as well as other information related to professional life coaching.
It is really important to make sure when selecting a life coach you select someone with certified qualifications. With life coaching being a relatively new field of professional guidance and help it is easy to become connected to someone claiming to be a life coach but not having been trained and certified.
