On a personal level, everything has been done yet. We know what we need to do to be happy. We know what we need to do to have a successful business. We know what we need to do to have meaningful relationships. The only thing that’s lacking is that we need to get off our asses and do it! And even that is no secret! When I first started is this personal growth business, because that’s a fancy name for what I do, I was astonished that I already knew so much about it. Through my work as a hospital clown, I even practiced most of the techniques that are used in life coaching. I was happy and confused at the same time. It seemed that my services as a life coach were otiose. If everybody knew how to live their lives, why would I try to start a business doing just that? But there had to be a reason why there were life coaches? When I started to follow certain groups on social media it hit me even more. There was nothing new! Nothing at all. Everybody was using the same principles but wore them another jacked and gave them fancy names. That was it. I was surprised there were so many people struggling with life in general. It seemed that everyone knew what had to be done. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Now after some years in the business, I realize that for one, for many people these principles are very new, and second of all many people are preaching, but few of them are practicing. It is one thing to have a social media channel where you put stories of Buddha in another jacked or use quotes of famous people in a fancy flashy TikTok or Instagram clip, but it’s an entirely different story when you need to implement these things in your life. And that is the least I would expect from a coach. Any kind of coach. Who would you go to a fitness coach who is overweighted? Do you get my point? I can only conclude that I am very glad I persevered in building my coaching business so that I can help a lot of people. I am really happy. Take care. Eddy.
