Last month was a test of my commitment to becoming a coach and pursuing my vision. The next couple months are like the last lap of a hike.
I will be finished with my teleclasses and I am in the process of reading all the modules and putting my reflections on the discussion board. I learnt very quickly not to actually write my reflection onto the discussion board on the internet. After one hour of reading and typing up the reflection, I hit the submit reply button – got kicked off the forum and lost everything. I was not a happy camper… I could not believe what had just happened. But, share determination to stick to my timetable which I laboured over on Friday to put together in excel, made me spend the time retyping everything as a Word document. This was a good decision because, I will have a complete document of all my reflections for all the modules which I will be able to look back on in years to come.
I look forward to doing my writing for my coaching article which is to be published next week Sunday. To meet the challenge of writing the articles, I signed up with the Writers Bureau from the UK to pursue a Non-Fiction Writing Course so that I can learn the rudiments of writing. One of the things that was suggested is that I will have to increasing my reading. I say this on one hand, but something that stuck me that I am going to work on is the method of meditating and tuning in with the universe before putting my fingers to the laptop. Madisyn Taylor in her book “Daily OM Learning to live”, says that she developed a system of working with the universe to help fine-tune the Daily OM stories. She picked one day in the week when she would not go into her office and would stay at home and have a meditation day. She then set her intention that this time was for her writing down story ideas. Her book is worth a read. I love her opening words, “I’ve often wished people were born with instructions manuals. Each would be different based on what we needed to learn, but the basics would be the same: how to create healthy relationships, how to deal with sorrow and pain, how to reach our goals, and how to know what we want to do with our lives when we grow up. We’d continue to have our own unique life lessons, but we’d have a guide to refer to when we were feeling overwhelmed or lost.”
A new beginning is coming…..
