“When patterns are broken, new worlds will emerge.” – Tuli Kupferberg
For me, this quote demonstrates why coaching works and why it’s such a powerful force in our world today.
This quote also works in reverse: by identifying new worlds we want to pursue, we find the capacity to break old patterns.
As a coach, I work with clients to identify their current world, and to identify the world of the future that they’re committed to. This commitment provides leverage and motivation so that they can change what they’re doing and break away from those old patterns. It helps them to be self-accountable and to self-manage. My role is simply to remind them of their commitments and their values.
What old patterns do you want to do less of, or to stop?
What new worlds do you want more of, or to start?
