Why I am not a coach

Over the last 2 years, I made many changes and I took the year off.   I took a long hard look at what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing.  I had a fuzzy vision and I was feeling that I was not progressing the way I wanted.  I felt like I had traded my old corporate job for a new corporate job.  As Micheal Gerber says, I was technician that now owned my own business. I knew in my hear that I was on the right track, but had not found the right way.

I did the unspoken thing that so many “coaches” do…. I went back to a day job.  Yep, I let go of the stress, panic and overwhelm and I paid the bills.  Then I spent the next year digging deeper into my soul to get a FULL picture of my vision.

Now with a full vision, I could re-approach all the aspects that I needed to work on to get me moving in that direction.

With that in mind I started to look at my role.  I got basic:

  • I am passion
  • I am a wise women
  • I am a woman
  • I am a daughter
  • I am a sister
  • I am a mother
  • I am a partner
  • I am a lover
  • I am a teacher

I was not a coach…  I was a teacher.  I had always been a teacher. That was what my heart & soul told me.

I use coaching tools, I use teaching tools, I use mentoring tools… I am a teacher.  I am on the earth to share my experience and teach people.

For me this decision brought me great peace and a new clearer vision of where my life will lead and with a new course set in, a new passion to accomplish great things!

So why did you choose to be a coach?  did you pick it because you are called to coaching… or because it is a trendy profession?

Do you really feel like a coach or are you really a teacher?    I don’t know these answer for you, but I believe that it is worth some time and clarification.   If after a review or your soul you still feel you are a coach, perfect!  If you don’t feel it, what is your next step?  what is your next evolution?
