It can be hard to avoid the big mistakes consultants make if you’re blind to the potholes. I’m sharing my own messy story to help you avoid some of the dips in the road in which I tripped and faltered.
Stress can get the best of us even when we think that we’ve got it all under control. In fact, that’s probably when our stress is at the highest, when we want to give the illusion of perfection and control in all that we do. For a long time, there was nothing that stressed me out more than other people thinking I don’t have my sh*t together. From the littlest thing to the biggest blunders, internally, I was treating them all the same. A year ago, I promised myself I’d learn to let it go and every day I’m getting a little better at that promise I’ve made to myself, even if I still have a long way to go.
I love working with people to create and increase their success (which more often than not actually translates into fulfillment, happiness, play and joy in their life.) When people pick up the phone and give me a call it often starts with a gut feeling that there is something more, something missing. After they pour their heart, passion and past failures out on the table, I’m inevitably asked: “OK. So, now what do I need to do?” They want me to tell them the 3, 5, 17 magic steps that will transport them from the chair they’re sitting in to a verified success.
