WHO HELPS YOU OUT OF YOUR FOG?

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a big believer in doing what you love. Sometimes what you love today you will find that you do not love so much a year from now. You keep doing it, but your passion for it is gone and you finally realize it is time to change your course. Time to do something different, in different way.

The time between when you become clear that you need the change and the time that you figure out what you need to change, can be maddening! You know you are unhappy about what you are doing, you are not getting the results that you want, and you do not have a clear vision moving forward. Limbo! This can be an emotional moment, a time when you feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and generally upset. It’s ok, just a bit of gloomy weather passing through.

Now is the time to get outside help! Especially if you are one of the thousands of people who work alone. This is the time you need a clear head, someone who can ask you the right questions, someone who can help you brain storm, and someone who has your best interest at heart and is willing to challenge you.

I have to give thanks to my coach, Brian Kavicky, at Lushin and Associates for being that person to challenge me. I have been working on a book, it has taken a lot of time and effort. Once I raised my head out of the book, looked around I realized, I am no longer engaged in what I was doing, and not even sure I want to keep doing it the same way. Finally, after a little push and bit of a challenge I feel as if I have some clarity again.

What’s the point of this post? We all get caught up doing things out of habit, without giving it much thought, but every now and then you look up and realize you are not where you want to be or doing what you want to do. It is that moment you need someone to help, if you don’t have a coach you should, they are worth their weight in gold. If you don’t have a mentor, find one, if you are operating alone you will find it very difficult to be inspired and find your way of of the fog.
