My client, Marc, and I had been working together for almost a year as he grew his business from an idea into a thriving consulting practice. At the start of every coaching conversation, I’d ask him for the agenda. This week’s was a surprise. “I don’t think I want to be a success.”
“I can’t do it!” she shouted into the phone.
My client was having a meltdown. She made big plans and then decided she was too small to live up to them. I strongly disagreed, and it pissed her off.
Before school today, I challenged my kids to see who could say their ABCs the fastest and still say every letter. I even wowed them with my ability to say the greek alphabet in less than four seconds. Once they were safely ensconced in their classroom, it’s no wonder I was still humming the alphabet.
