In my last message I waxed lyrical about how satisfying it is to coach people in Radical Forgiveness, self-forgiveness and all the other Radical Living strategies derived from them. My purpose was to encourage you to learn to do the same by taking the training.
But I confess that in doing so, I became quite nostalgic for the days when I did only that — working one-on-one with clients. I miss it a great deal. It is so incredibly rewarding. These days, I just write, plan courses, do workshops, travel extensively and run the business.
I do enjoy most of that, but watching the light bulbs go on in people as they suddenly get what their story is really all about is a real buzz. It’s addictive even. It is such a privilege to be part of someone’s life transformation.
In the online training programs, there are a whole bunch of videos of me doing real sessions with people as real demonstrations. (I got those done by putting the word out offering free sessions if they would agree to be filmed.)
When I review these videos with students during the live training, I realize just how much I miss working with individuals in a coaching context. It’s so amazing to see those light bulbs popping one after another.
I was also inspired by the degree of courage people had when confronted with their past hurts and yet how willing they became to see the perfection in it and let it all go. It sure does help me let go of my own stuff whenever I think about them, or get e-mails from them telling how much their life has changed.
But even though I do little coaching one-on-one, I am not denied the pleasure that comes from it. I now get that buzz in a more vicarious manner by showing others how to get those kind of results, sharing in their joy and in the rewards that come from them doing the work. That is very satisfying for me.
If Radical Forgiveness Coaching is something that interests you, I hope I might one day have that same pleasure hearing about your success with this work.
