Our choices have to reflect our values

FontCandy (22)

I have met many people who have very strong morals and values and are stuck working in a company that doesn’t reflect these in the slightest.

I have also met people who are lucky enough to actually have a job that reflects their values but in their personal life this isn’t the case.

What is it that stops people from ditching the uncomfortable situations they find themselves in and going for what they really want? Is it timing or circumstance?Or maybe they are just unlucky in their choices. Things start off well and then things take a turn for the worse.

The reason that people struggle with  changing something in their life is due to the fear of it being the wrong choice again. I mean if it has already happened once, it can happen again right?

This is very common and when it comes to jobs or relationships it is quite understandable that people worry about not finding the right one.

In cognitive behavioural coaching, the coach can help the coachee self-reflect on their thought processes and find the thoughts that may be blocking them from making a decision. It can also assist with the steps that the coachee needs to take to reach their goal.

As always stated in any coaching session, motivation is key. If the coachee isn’t motivated to make a change then change won’t happen.
