This week I would like to offer you some thoughts that may give you an EDGE. Just like success, getting an EDGE will mean different things to different people. For some it may be finding the one thing that makes their day more productive, for others, it may be a supporting tool to help them move out of their comfort zone in their life, be it at work or at home, in business, or in love. For others, it really could be as simple as something to help them enjoy each day, a little more.
As you know, this is the name of my Coaching business (EDGE) and it is the model I use to help when partnering with clients. You may have noticed I use the following poem at the foot of all my e-mails as I believe it will resonate with many people wanting a little more, but may feel wary of stepping outside their comfort zone. It goes like this
“Come to the EDGE, “we can’t, we are afraid, “come to the EDGE”, “we can’t, we might fall”
“come to the EDGE”, and they came... and he pushed them, and they flew. Guillaume Apollinaire
I think there are many people in this world, who would just love to take a step forward and see what they can really achieve. Some are being held back by inner doubts, fearing their real power and what may happen if it is unleashed and then, of course, there are those who are telling themselves they are content in their comfort zone, but looking out wondering what life is like on the other side. To these people I always say, you will never know unless you dip your foot over the EDGE.
So how do you go about doing this, stepping over the EDGE? Well, it starts with my 4-step plan which you can easily follow, and even if you only achieve step one, I guarantee you that you will be nearer to your intention than you are right now.
