When Jim from JB’S Big Adventure here in Ajijic, Mexico called me one day and said, “Hey, would you be interested in being a guest on my You Tube Channel to talk about Coaching? I am not going to lie, I froze a little and I could feel the butterflies starting to flutter. So I put on my big girl panties and I nervously jumped at the chance to try something I had never experienced before. All the voices in my head were playing ping pong with my emotions, “What if I freeze?”, “What if I stumble over my words ?”, “What if I crash and burn ?”. Then the Coaching side of my brain took over and thought, “What if it’s a success ?”, “What if you had fun with it ?”, “What if this one video can help others ?”. When the day came to shoot the video with Jim, all the nervous excitement and uncertainty melted away, Jim had a calming effect and within minutes it felt like two people connecting over their love of helping others.
There were 3 things that stood out for me after the video aired:
- I love Coaching & helping others and when you speak about what brings you Joy, that is always a SUCCESS !
- Trust and be open to new experiences, getting out of you comfort zone & meeting new people, always stay CURIOUS !
- Find the humour in each and every day! Did you notice how many times I said the word RIGHT in this video? It’s ok, “Right” is a positive word, so always have a LAUGH!
Sometimes our first thoughts about new experiences can be scary, the key here is to embrace your curiosity, have a laugh, and call it a success !
Thank you …And big Yes!!!
Thanks Diane !
