Self coaching can be a good alternative for coaching if you are short on cash or may feel uncomfortable with discussion your issues with a coach. Self coaching will work if you can motivate yourself enough to start, and continue, the process and are willing to go all the way.
When people talk about personal development they often say they want to improve things like self-confidence, communication skills or how to set goals efficiently. But what is often overlooked is being able to listen to others, empathic listening; listening to truly understand.
I have been working on my self-confidence, among other things, and am glad I did. It made me a much happier person; I’m not afraid of success any longer, I enjoy success and can also share it with others. This is something I wish for others as well as I realize self-confidence is a major issue with a lot of people.
If you, consciously, accept the challenge something wonderful can happen. Change can be the catalyst for something bigger. Change can make you grow, it can transform you. But remember: Personal development is for the brave at heart. You’ll have to earn real and lasting change. Once you learn how to change and grow in life, once you follow the path, there is no turning back.
We all experience the world around us differently. With our five senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch) we process an enormous flow of information that is constantly reaching us; day and night. The only way our brain can handle this is to filter it. This is the reality we experience. Our experience is not the real reality but a filtered one. We are living in our own world.
It is relative easy to wish others well or to say you love someone else. But how many people can honestly look in the mirror and say they love themselves? Can you? Many people lack the self-confidence for this. They think they don’t deserve to be loved. Thinking they are lacking an essential quality for this.
Have you ever been inspired by others? Have you ever met a real inspiring person? If you did, whether this person was one of your parents (or maybe both), a teacher or a (spiritual) leader, I’ll bet that person made a huge impact on you and changed your life forever.
