For many people, there is a strong misconception around what coaching is. I've heard a common theme in the following statements:
1) I wish someone could just tell me what to do.
2) If I knew which direction to go, I could get started.
3) I feel so lost/stuck/confused.
Feel familiar? I've been there, too. That mental wheel-spinning is exhausting and frustrating. But, coaches shouldn't be telling you what to do with your life.
My guess is that what you don't need is advice. I'd be willing to bet that you've already talked to family and friends and maybe even mentors about what has you feeling like you're in neutral gear. And, what you've already gotten is plenty of advice. Answers in the form of "yo
