Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place!

Stuck between a rock and a hard place

Are you stuck between a rock and a hard place?

Changing the perception of where you are right now, will reveal better options in moving forward successfully and creatively.

However, too many times we are so close to our situation, we just can’t see any way out.  That’s when a skilled Life Coach is just the person to call.

On your own, you know that whichever direction you go, it will be unpleasant, but you are still faced with an unpleasant decision that must be made. Life has never been something that a person could plan, and then live out perfectly. Events and circumstances happen on a daily basis that consistently pressures us to make decisions. From the simple, “do I turn here or there? Either way, I’m going to be late” or difficult decisions that will change the course of your life forever, such as, “Do I leave or do I stay?”

Life has never been something that a person could plan, and then live out perfectly. Events and circumstances happen on a daily basis that consistently pressures us to make decisions. From the simple, “do I turn here or there? Either way, I’m going to be late” to greater pressures and decisions that will change the course of your life forever. “Do I leave or do I stay?”

We do the best that we can. We work hard on our marriages, work, friendships, and relationships. We do the best we know how to do, yet still, experience disappointment and pain.

The challenge of navigating through the season of a “rock and a hard place” is your mindset! And in order to change your mindset, it’s invaluable to have someone assist you in clarifying your choices and course of action. A professional Life Coach is your best solution because they are trained to ask better questions, how to listen and to NOT to force their own agendas on those they are coaching. YOUR agenda and goals are what matter most. (If you’ve had the opposite experience with a Life Coach, then you hired an inexperienced, or untrained individual that is calling themselves a Life Coach – but in fact, they aren’t.)

This is the problem when seeking friends or family to help think through things. It’s too easy to just “tell” someone how to fix their problem! The temptation to become emotionally involved in the outcome of your decisions may set them up to take your thought processes as a personal attack if you do not agree with them. Many a relationship has fallen apart because of this. 

Looking for the lessons in our moments will stimulate a creative mindset that is seeking solutions – not just wishing that things weren’t the way that you are perceiving them to be. 

Be curious! What else can you do with the moment that you are in, besides being negative, and what tools do you have at hand that you can do something else with? For instance, if you are struggling financially, what can you do to add extra income? There are thousands of suggestions online! Tell yourself the truth … Because most often, adding income is not about adding income – it’s about how you want to spend your time.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, or you are overwhelmed – contact me!

Investing in a set of coaching sessions will be one of the best investments you’ve ever made – and is sure to kickstart your forward action towards a better result.
