Put your own life vest on first!
A lot of people are in the habit of putting other people before themselves. Families, kids, parents. Always making sure that their needs are fulfilled – often at the expense of their own. I hear people say “I’m not that important” and “The kids come first” and “As long as he’s happy, I’m happy”. You get me?
Well you know when you’re sitting on the airplane, getting ready to take off? And you hear the Captain say, “In the unlikely event that the aircraft should hit water, please ensure you secure your own life vest first, before helping others”. Sound a bit selfish? Well not really. Think about it. How can you possibly be of any use to anyone else if you’re already drowning?
Coaching helps you to identify exactly what it is that’s missing in life, how to make changes and how to get what you want. Sometimes, it’s about putting yourself first. That’s not selfish. That’s sensible!
