Life coaches are always talking about getting people on the “right track.” I’m not fond of the term because, first of all, there isn’t one track that suits a person but all kinds. How does one choose? What should one choose? A single life bends in so many different directions that the right/wrong track becomes irrelevant.
The main step is knowing about the track you’re on already. “Nowhere” is not a valid place to be or go. Then again, It isn’t easy to know what you’re doing as you’re doing it; just because you’re doing it doesn’t mean that you know what’s going on. And that’s all right. Why? Because the less we analyze and expect from the track we’re on, the easily it is to profit from the experience. Anxiety melts away whether or not there truly is anything to be anxious about.
Of course, I’m not diminishing the wisdom of personal assessment and goal setting. I am encouraging you to not get hard on yourself when the path you take doesn’t go your way; look at the other ones before you, or maybe behind you, and don’t fret about the time it takes to give them a shot. The time you took for the wrong shot was not time wasted. You can’t blame yourself.
Remember that I can’t know what the right track truly is for you. You do. I can help you identify that direction on on ou can no more expect a life coach to swoop down and determine the right track than you can expect a man to propose to a woman after only three minutes of knowing her. Life coaches don’t have magic wands—they harness the “magic” power we all have to make our own decisions, which lead to a better life.
I would avoid a life coach who, on the first session, is telling you what you need to do to become the person you want. In other words, any life coach who tells you what the right track is probably isn’t going to get you to where you want to be.
