|hugo - my life coach|
Well, I suppose the best answer would be myself, but when times are tough sometimes you have to look outside yourself for some coaching.
Meet Hugo, my personal life coach.
For over fourteen years, he's motivated me to rise every morning and set my intentions for the day. He's very good a keeping to a routine, which means he lets me know when I need to go to yoga, eat lunch, avoid the television or computer, and get some sleep. He went to the school of hard knocks, so anything sub-standard has no business in his life. He has a relentless desire to see me live life to its fullest, and every day I thank him for his persistence.
Look around you. Do you see your life coach? The people, animals, or things in your life that keep you motivated and on track when times are difficult. Could it be your family, garden, community, or business you've made a commitment to? Kids are incredible life coaches, because they're constantly reflecting back to you what is most out of balance.
Are you listening to the messages of your life coach or are you resisting? Either way I hope you're practicing kindness and patience with yourself. Listening and resisting both have a certain value in the process. For me, after a long period of resisting Hugo's instructions on life where I find myself giving into the moment, I let out a big laugh, enjoying the absurdity of myself and the experience of letting go.
I hope you'll look to the coaches in your life and show them your thanks today and every day.
