“Imagination is a quality given to man to compensate him for what he is not and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.”
– Oscar Wilde, writer and poet
The development of self-awareness and the ability to adapt to life’s circumstances are critical skills developed and enhanced during a coaching relationship.
Quite often, I discover many people I work with have strong “inner critics” and tend to emphasize their own perceived shortcomings. At the same time, many of these same individuals take themselves and life far too seriously, which often diminishes their pleasure and enjoyment of life.
Try on “Wilde coaching” by exercising both your imagination and sense of humor to bring greater fulfillment and satisfaction to your days.
Let your friends, mentors and coaches in your life know that you intend to make these efforts so that they can help you improve your likelihood of success.
