Change. If it were so easy, you would have already done it.
Why is it so difficult to change a habit, to get out of addiction, to take a step in a different direction—maybe a job situation, a healthier lifestyle or a detrimental relationship?
Sometimes you don’t even know you’re stuck. You’ve been doing the same thing for so long it seems “normal” to think and act in ways that continue to leave you anxious, stressed out, depressed, fatigued and all the other maladies that come when you’re living outside of what’s important to you—your values.
Maybe you don’t know HOW to change. You want to. You know deep down that the status quo is not working for you anymore. But it all feels foreign to you. Besides, what would people think if you suddenly changed the game plan? Would they think that you’re just selfish or don’t care anymore? Do you believe it would be selfish to make the change(s)?
Change is hard.
“You can’t always change where you are, but you can change where you’re going.”—Alex Korb, PhD
And when you want to start denying, rationalizing or telling yourself what you want doesn’t matter, you need to:
- Stop believing there isn’t anything you can do.
- Get clear on what you want.
- Stop focusing on the problem; focus on the solution instead.
- Not not do anything because it’s too hard.
- Stop trying to go it alone
You have control over more in your life than you think.
The good news is that the anecdote to positive change is action–small, purposeful movements. With someone to guide you take those steps, you discover all that you want and need is right inside of you.
Unlike therapy or mentoring, coaching provides the time, space, and guidance for you to make changes right away. Coaching doesn’t go back to your past—you start where you are, and amazingly you figure it out, which gives you confidence to take action and taking action builds even greater confidence! It works!

And it is in the valley that your life begins to change.
