Why? Why would you go and spend time and money with a Professional Coach?
Well, the truth is, most wouldn’t, and more fool them. Most hold to the presuppositions that we learn by our mistakes or that we enter adulthood already knowing how to make the best of our lives; that we know all about business, money, relationships etc. Both are dangerous and limiting presuppositions.
“Going into business ‘half-cock’ as it were (or a relationship for that matter) can be both emotionally and financially costly.”
Getting into business and starting relationships armed with some fundamental understandings of yourself (in particular your beliefs), and the basic, simple means of getting your business and relationships off to a good start, are the actions of those who are able to see beyond dangerous and limiting presuppositions.
By this means, we’re able to avoid the many pitfalls, learning by mistakes or simply living off our whits can bring.
When it comes to luck and good fortune you might think: ‘you either have it or you don’t.’ A limiting way to think for sure. Luck is something you can make. Making our own good luck starts by being properly informed.
Be assured, much of the limiting information you may currently hold in your mind, can be easily removed through a simple analytical questioning process. Finding a Professional Coach, who’s able to guide you through this process, will prove invaluable.
“Starting out by investing wisely in you, through better understanding your own mind, is how to design your future luck. Future luck, is designed by understanding how the past continues to influence the present, and future.”
If you already believe you’re a lucky person, it’s unlikely you’ll seek out the services of a Professional Coach. It may well be, that you’ll live by this belief – going from one win to the next. Be advised though, only working from the belief you’re lucky, is going to lead to that inevitable spate of bad luck. Far better to nurture the good luck belief, and then gain the knowledge of it’s opposite, to avoid that inevitable fall.
Now, you may think it obvious, that the opposite to good, is bad. You’d be incorrect in this assumption. Bad is only the counterpart to good, it’s opposite is ignorance. Think of a naughty child. The child is only naughty because he doesn’t understand – or has never been shown – the benefits of being good. Therefore good and bad are seen as equal counterparts that get what the child seeks: love and attention. When we show a child the benefits of being good, in terms of their own well being, it’s counterpart bad diminishes, and it’s opposite ignorance, is then worked upon.
“In other words, we’re teaching the child, how to think.”
So, designing your own luck, is the kind of thing a pragmatic individual does, who’d rather not survive by the skin of their teeth, relying on chance alone, never truly understanding the difference between good and bad. Changing ignorance into ‘informed-wisdom’ is creating our own good luck.
The first lesson is in the form of this question: What do you want? You’ll never know anyone, least of all yourself, if you don’t know what they want.
