We can be our own worst enemy. Our emotional responses and thought processes can stand in our way like a blockade when we are trying to achieve our goals. Negative thoughts invade our thinking. Every day life seems to roll on with no real progress. We are not broken, but just can’t get to the next level of our personal or professional life — where we want to be. This is where a coach comes in. They can help us work out how to move forward. Sometimes we just need someone on our side, listening and maybe challenging us to allow us to see the next steps we need to take.
