I spend most of my working time helping people to get clear – clarifying their story, their values, their purpose, what their customers love about what they do, what they enjoy.
However, when it comes to myself, clarity is elusive.
I’ve found this with many of my colleagues who coach or help others in different areas.
Why can we help others do things that we can’t do for ourselves?
It’s because we see the best in our customers and the people we want to help. Because feelings of fear, failure and resistance are not sabotaging us when we work with our clients.
You might be great at working with others but not able to help yourself with the same problem.
This isn’t about your professional expertise but rather about self-compassion and difficulty connecting with your own potential.
