Would you like to learn life coaching strategies the next time you make a mistake or feel stuck in your life? If so, you are in the right place. Life is fraught with uncertainty. No matter how hard we try to avoid the potholes, there’s always another obstacle looming on the horizon.
I just coined this quote, Resolving Conflict is just like riding a bike: Shift gears to successfully navigate life’s potholes, ruts, and obstacles.
How we recover from our personal and professional mistakes makes all the difference in the world. This article contains information from my second book, Take the Ride of Your Life! You will find useful tools for making that graceful recovery.
Life Coaching Strategies # 1: Look at those old patterns
The obvious mistakes are easy to correct … it’s what we don’t see that causes the most damage. Have you ever noticed certain situations keep popping up? And some problems just get worse?
Start observing your rituals. This will help you decide which patterns are working and which ones are keeping you down.
Life Coaching Strategies #2: Get some positive feedback
The most valuable and underused tool we have is input from our true friends. Who else can you trust when you’re stuck in a rut?
It’s difficult to recognize our own shortcomings, but a trustworthy friend can gently introduce areas for improvement. Open yourself to hearing what they have to say, and drop the defense mechanisms!
With your eyes newly opened, look for new ways of dealing with habitual mistakes, write down an action plan, and see how it works.
Life Coaching Strategies #3: Forgive yourself
Our inner voices can be merciless! Forgive yourself. Quit carrying the guilt and shame around like a heavy suitcase. Torturing yourself with past failures helps you achieve … nothing.
Blame is another reason we don’t always get over our mistakes. We blame others for our mistakes, thinking this will shrink our guilt.
Once you get beyond guilt and blame, you can start enjoying the ride.
