I love to preach, “What you do outside of this office is substantially more important than what we do in here.” Why? Have you ever heard the idiom, “you can lead a horse to water…”? If you’ve spent enough time with me, you’ve probably heard me utter this as well. We can do a bunch or great stuff in the office that yields evidence of a positive treatment outcome, but if you don’t change the daily habits that caused your ailment in the first place, you’ll never achieve a long-term solution. I can give you the tools, but you have to use them!
What I’m trying to get at (just spit it out already!) is you are ultimately responsible for your life and what you do with it! You can live every moment of your life on your own terms, but it’s not easy and not for everyone, which is okay. Nonetheless, you need to make a decision because indecision is a bad decision. If you don’t choose the choice will be made for you.
Personally, I have chosen work with other professionals to learn and develop personally and professionally. I have sizeable goals and aspirations, and I am not too proud to think I can do it all on my own. However, I’m fundamentally responsible for taking my coaching to action, turning aspirations into reality.
