Which Path Do I Choose?
Do you have so many options and choices that it paralyzes you from making a simple decision?
Are you a perfectionist? Does that cause you to delay any decisions because you want everything just perfect?
At some point everyone will need to make at least one decision and then the next decision based on the outcome of the first decision. But if you are stuck you don’t make any decisions, this is where the challenge lies.
This is the time where a life coach can really help to support and guide you to get on the right path.
Your coach acts as your guide, your mentor, your mirror, your designer and your partner to success. By using simple coaching techniques, your coach helps you to create your plan for success. But you need to continue to take baby steps in order to move forward.
The simplest way to give you clarity is to look at your “big picture” your long term goal.
Then when each decision comes up – you ask yourself how will my decision impact my long term goal – if it is positive (even if it is a baby step in the right direction) it is still good. If it will impact your long term goal negatively then you need to rethink your decision.
Do you want so much to not make a mistake that you do nothing?
Is this really where you want to be? Are you comfortable letting other people make choices for you because you are stuck. Are you happy with other people’s left overs?
By not taking any action or making any decisions, you are unfortunately making decisions, but not the best ones for you.
With so many choices out there of course, it is important to choose the right path and deal with the consequences.
But when you are crippled by procrastination and indecision you may find that life passes you by as you ponder away the years.
You are not alone. I have coached many people of all ages, who are beginning to find some satisfaction in claiming their life and making their own decisions and choices.
Here are a few coaching questions to help you clarify your vision:
Searching for happiness or following your passion is often the backbone to coaching sessions. This is great when the coach is guiding you through the process of goal setting and coming up with strategies to get you to your destination.
By not making any decisions, you are living your life from the sidelines allowing others to take what they want and you taking whatever is left over. At some point, you need to claim your life and take responsibility for yourself and your actions.
Using simple life coaching techniques, you need to look at what taking action would look like to you? Does it take you where you want to be? If not, your life coach can support you in making changes to achieve your goals.
