you’re not giving it to them!
This brings up an example I’ve recently come upon.
The other side had their solution and I had mine. I went to them and said “we need to find a solution we can both be happy with” and I left it with them.
It only took a couple of days and they reached out with the most elegant of solutions … it is so smooth, so easy and it came about in less than 48 hours.
If you have one of these big problems in front of you …
You want it to be THIS way, they insist it HAS TO BE their way …
You need to be open to the fact that it doesn’t have to be your way.
Allow yourself to see the elegant solution.
If you’re not seeing what that solution is … the simple, elegant solution that will make both sides happy, reach out to a coach.
That’s what coaching does …
It holds the space for you.
Maybe you just need one coaching session.
Just be open and have FUN with it!

What really stands out for me, as a benefit to working with Lynne, is that when you start feeling sorry for yourself she’s able to immediately take you out of that space by showing you that you don’t need to be in that misery. Lynne’s able to show us that we can choose not to be there and that getting out of that space is as simple as doing it … and she does all of this with a straight face. She does this for herself and believes it, herself. Lynne’s strong will comes through, saying (more or less, but lovingly): I don’t give a s*^t how bad things look to you, what you’re doing is all about the choices you’re making. So make different choices.
I am getting a better handle on an over-all vision. My day-to-day is more organized and more productive. Now I need to focus on the bigger picture.
Lynne’s coaching helped me get out of situation and mentality that I was hanging onto so tightly and unwilling to let go of. I am now strong enough to let that go … and in so doing I am in a better headspace to be more productive in my business in every area, especially in making sales calls.
Ever since starting the VIP program with MLJ International my attitude has become, not only more confidant, but an “I’m going to make it work!” attitude. Whatever the day looks like, I get through it and turn it around.
Before working with Lynne I never took a vacation longer than 7 days and now I have just gotten back from my DREAM VACATION! 17 days in Tuscany. I also treated myself to a long weekend in New York. My “fun factor” has gone from a 2/10 to a 5/10 and is still climbing!
The one thing that truly stands out for me is that I need to learn what I can do for myself to make me happy. I’ve been in the habit of taking care of others and neglecting myself.
I am now working on developing the habit of doing what will make ME happy!
