What Happens When You Become Unstuck?

What happens when you move from being “stuck” to “unstuck”?

“Ryan” came to me one day for a coaching session. We had done this before, so he knew what to expect.

So I was surprised when he said he didn’t have a topic to talk about.

I knew there was more beneath the surface, so I asked him what was happening in his life or career.

He then proceeded to talk…for 45 minutes…about one co-worker who was a thorn in his side.

When he finally came up for air, I asked him this: “What do you want?”

The question may seem unrelated, but it isn’t. It required Randy to move past complaining to clarify what he really wanted.

After some discussion, he decided that what he really wanted was a new job. The co-worker was a smokescreen, hiding what he really wanted behind relational conflict.

We were able to continue talking about what a job transition would look like for him.

This is what coaching does. It peels back layers of self until you vision your true values. Only then can you align your life activities with your values.

So let me ask you one question for today:

What do *you* want?

And, if I can help you talk through it, comment below or DM me.

Helping people “unstick” themselves is the anchor of my coaching practice.

I do this by helping nonprofit leaders, church leaders (pastors), spiritual business owners and practitioners, and stressed out salespeople slay self-sabotage by visioning their values and aligning their activities for balance and personal growth.

Want to talk to me about some of the ways you are stuck and how you can move beyond “stuckness”?
