“You must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you.” ~Joseph Campbell
While working with my own coach, we were chatting about an area that I feel blocked in.
As any great coach does, many questions later, he called me on my stuff.
“Did you notice what you just said?”
“Ummm, no what?” I replied.
“When I asked you what it is that you truly want to transform in this area – you went right to yourself and said – I’m working on it.”
He went on to say: “Why are you treating yourself as if you’re a project? What if there is absolutely nothing that you need to work on, improve, or do in order to BE who you really are?”
I sat there in silence thinking – I’ve probably said the same exact thing to my own coaching clients – but in that moment, it was the loudest Truth I had ever heard.
I’m sharing this example of my own coaching because I think in the New Age era where there are literal Self Help sections in the bookstore – we all need to question – what are we trying to help within ourselves vs. become within ourselves?
In that moment with my coach, I realized a lifetime pattern of treating myself, my life, and whatever was blocking me at that time – as a project – as something that has a start, finish and an end.
