Myth busters...

Exploring a new paradigm of Coaching, Mentoring and Interpersonal Facilitation, what it is and what it isn’t, from the perspective of GCA heart based philosophy and our graduates.



Myth: Starting over is hard – I can’t “just change”...


Bust: Yes, change can be hard work, and starting over can be overwhelming, but it IS possible.


We make it hard because we hold onto things that are familiar or known. This is normal human nature learned and ingrained in our very DNA for generations. However, the good news is that it doesn’t have to rule your life. You CAN change and achieve your goals. It’s a step-by-step process. Nobody does it overnight, so you have to manage your expectations and know that the current situation has been reinforced for a long time, but it’s not your future.


Your past and present do not define your future if you don’t want it to!


The work is in recognising the unhelpful behaviours, beliefs, and strategies that you have in place. Once you have uncovered them, you need to take action to turn those patterns around or let go of the ones which are holding you back. It’s possible. It takes courage and focus. But you can do it by taking it one moment at a time, one action at a time, one step at a time. Consistently with constancy.


Acknowledging that the patterns were installed to keep you ‘safe’ or to help you in some way. At the time, they seemed appropriate. But now you have outgrown them. So be grateful for them. Thank them for their service, and either let them go, or maybe repurpose them.


Every moment is a new beginning!


You don’t have to wait until you’ve resolved something, or wait until tomorrow, or next week, or next whatever… there are no prizes for “when I/then I”. We all know them: “when I lose weight, then I will be happy”; “when I have more money, then I will find a partner”; “when I grow up, then I will know who I am”… and so on. No. NOW is a new moment when you can choose how you want to spend your time and energy. You have a choice in every single moment. Every. Single. Moment. THIS is a new beginning. Right here, right now.


What do you want to do with this insight?


Don’t delay another moment. If you don’t know where or how to start, find a coach. Or contact us for a student coach to work with you on your goals and your future. This moment – here, now, as you read this, is a new beginning. This is your moment.


What will you choose?
