Tell me how you want to feel
Updated: Jan 29
"Everyone of us has a deep desire inside... If we didn't have any desire at all, we wouldn't care about living. We wouldn't have any energy. Everyone has a true and deep desire." - from the book Good Citizens by Thich Nhat Hanh.
In my coaching practice, people sometimes come looking for advice and certainty. I can't give that to them. As a certified coach, it's not my role to tell anyone what to do. And nothing is certain anyway.
What I can do is help them explore what's real for them. If they feel they have lost their motivation and sense of meaning, we explore what's happening and what they need. Often we are talking about what comes next.
Once we can connect to a deeper sense of how we want to feel and the impact we want to have, the motivation and meaning start to become clearer.
