You’re smart. Successful. Financially stable. (And modest, apparently.) But it doesn’t feel like enough anymore.
So you’ve taken some steps towards a different life. You’ve bought David Brooks’ book Second Mountain at your local bookstore. You’ve downloaded Waking Up with Sam Harris on to your Kindle. You have Dan Harris’ Ten Percent Happier meditation app. Heck, you’ve even watched Brene Brown’s Netflix special.
Most marketing directed toward you (men, collectively) focuses on building physical strength, making money, and being a Cassanova. Muscles, money, and women are great, but you understand that there’s more to life.
How about emotional strength, making a difference in the world, and being a multi-faceted, complex human? For the record, I believe that you’re already these things.
Let’s address the elephant in the room. Are you thinking it’s odd that a female coach is working with men, not with other women? (This is what I do; call out the unsaid things. That’s why I’m an awesome coach.)
There’s a reason.
Here’s why: I am sick of a world that tells you that you should feel your emotions, but when you do, you’re judged.
That says that you should talk to your guy friends about your life, but doesn’t show you examples of how to do it in non-awkward ways.
That says you should show up vulnerably in your community, but doesn’t set you up for success. (Especially when you’re not part of a religious community.)
That stifles your interest in “softer” things, like creativity.
I coach successful, high-achieving executive men like you who are at the beginning of a spiritual awakening; who are no longer satisfied with the thoughts, feelings, and actions that have created their current results.
In the words of Brennan Manning: “The wisdom is that of an adult who has regained equilibrium, stabilized, and found fresh purpose and new dreams. It is a wisdom that gives some things up, lets some things die, and accepts human limitations … the second journey begins when we know we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the morning program.”
I used to avoid mentioning these things, but I realized that doesn’t serve our coaching relationship. So, here’s what you can expect:
Are you in? Let’s talk.
