On the eve of a major achievement
For the last three years I have been preparing myself with a new skill set of Leadership Coaching. It has been a dream since I was in college. Taking on an achievement like this in post-mid life has been very challenging and rewarding. I am on the eve of taking the Professional Certified Coach written exam. This is the last step of a major accomplishment. I have already completed 125 hours of coach specific training through the Professional Christian Coaching Institute. I have logged in over 800 hours of coaching some amazing leaders around the world. I have received 30 hours of mentoring coaching from two amazing coaches, Gary Wood and Vicki Corrington.
Reflect with me on the possible lessons and benefits you can gain from accomplishing a major achievement in your adult life and career.
- It is motivating to have a goal which is driven by the desire to benefit other people's lives and leadership.
- Your career is enhanced and you have a new skill set and knowledge base to draw from.
- Time management takes on a new level with so many adult responsibilities to manage.
- When the achievement connects to your life calling there is great satisfaction. (I think I avoided a mid-life crisis by accomplishing this achievement!)
- You have a new lease on life which drives growth both personally but professionally.
- It motivates others to accomplish a major achievement.
- It protects us from burnout by giving us a new challenge.
- You will be motivated to let go of lesser things like distractions, worry, anger and fear.
