Have you reached the top of your career or personal ladder and are now wondering what happens next?
Your inner most thoughts, doubts and passions tend to get shared with your circle of family and friends, but they may not be the right people to champion your cause. They may not be the objective people that you need to help you make your dream happen.
Whether you are the Managing Director of a company or the latest apprentice you can feel lonely at your individual pinnacle. You can even feel lonely in a crowded room or in a loving relationship if something is bothering you, something that you can’t share. If left unattended the problem can fester and escalate until it controls you rather than you controlling the problem.
Often we reach an impasse when challenging words or challenging thoughts stand between us and the next goal.
Typically people use me as a confidential sounding board to either share what is bothering them or to help them plan the future. I help clients to have the difficult conversations either with themselves or other people and create an understanding of what needs to be said.
In the pursuit of a goal, your inner critic can sometimes hamper your progress far more than any physical barrier and often you can feel irrational talking to your nearest and dearest, so finding someone to offload your concerns can be an added burden. Finding someone to share your enthusiasm and determination can be even harder.
When a company is created the motivation is most commonly financial, but as the company grows it always means something more than that, it becomes emotional. How would you feel in 30 years time when you sell your business and the new owner dissects the company and ruins your reputation, would you be distraught?
Many people would like to leave a legacy, their mark on this world.
Creating a suitable successor to your vision or your work can sometimes be left to chance, but the inspired few take proactive steps to develop a sustainable legacy. Again it can feel “lonely at the top” being in conflict with your logical and emotional thoughts. This is where I can help my clients to gain clarity and find ways to pass on their life’s vision and create a legacy in their own life time.
Everyone’s plans and aspirations can create a legacy that makes others remember you, whether that’s for commercial or personal reasons, so why leave it to chance?
