Your internal representations (what you think) describe the world around you, the people around you and yourself in this context.
They put a filter on everything that happens to you. They translate reality around you and interpret it according to the blueprint you have in your head.
This blueprint is your internal map of your universe.
Now, if this map does not show you the way to where you want to get, change it for a better one.
This may not be easy.
Maybe you are so attached to your current map that you are not able to get rid of it.
Maybe you don’t even see that your map is crummy.
And maybe there is someone who is constantly convincing you that it is best for you. Even if it is not.
That is why it is always good to look at it with someone else.
Someone who has enough of cartographic experience.
Someone who has seen many maps and has walked many paths.
Someone who is able to help you add one more line on your map that can make the difference.
This someone can be a good coach.
I love the way Micheal Burt described three things a good coach will do for you.
- (S)he will have conversations you do not want to have, but you need to have.
- (S)he will force you to do things you do not want to do, but you need to do.
- (S)he will help you become someone you did not think you could become.
I could not put it in better words.
That’s my coaching philosophy.
