As a coach, you often hear the client say, it's so hard! The statement itself tells us that a client is both summarizing and explaining his current situation, that something is difficult. The statement thus describes how the client views their current situation and it is what happens next that makes the difference.
For those who choose to use their explanation that it is difficult, in order not to have to grasp, change something or themselves, learn how to do it, it thus uses the words as an excuse when it expresses that it is difficult. It tells us that the client really wants to get somewhere else, but doesn't know how or is ready to do what it takes to get there. This is rooted in itself, in that there is a perceived lack of knowledge, resources or self-awareness that it is even possible.
The role of the coach is therefore to first of all, find out if the client really wants to have a change or if the current situation is a resistance to making a change, which deep down they really don't want!?
If the client really wants to, then the coach helps his client to set up a realistic plan, analyze what resources are available or needed and to get the client to trust himself that he can and is capable.
If we simply compare with the winner of Olympic gold in the marathon, the winner did not start running at record speed on day 1, but there are years of training behind, to gain strength, speed, endurance, tenacity, etc.
So is it that difficult, or can you accomplish what you want if you think differently, divide what is difficult into smaller pieces and do it over a longer period of time?
