I do. It’s great! When I am focused, I can work at triple speed. I can do more work in one hour than others in half a day or even a day. I’ve had it all my life. I can put myself in hyper-focus. It’s scary sometimes. This way, I work very effectively.
But it’s not all great. There is a flip side, as there is to everything.
My mind gets to race sometimes, and my thinking is all over the place. On top of that, I am acting a bit socially awkward. I’m not interested in seeing people, in interacting. I only want to do my thing.
I didn’t have this insight before I started coaching. People were in admiration for the work I did. At the same time, they didn’t understand, and I didn’t care.
That stopped me from growing, from expanding my business and my personal growth. It had a lot to do with believing my own stories, my BS. I was very good at these stories, but they didn’t serve me at all.
I didn’t see it myself. I couldn’t. Nobody can! A few coaches made me see it. Thankfully!
Now I’m very good at catching these stories with other people. The other day, someone replied to me that they don’t need a guru.
That’s a story there are telling themselves.
It’s the story of ‘I don’t need any help’. I can do it myself. I used this story many times. Now I can catch it with my eyes closed.
The sad thing is that people don’t see it and keep chasing their tails.
It takes courage to admit you need help. It takes a true leader.
