I have a basic tenet that has supported me in all aspects of my personal and professional life – that people, all of us, have within them all the resources that they need to make whatever change they want.
You have all the resources you need to make whatever change you want.
At times when I feel at my most unresourceful, when I am depressed, sad, anger, frustrated or just not getting it, then I can remind myself that I have it within me to do whatever needs to be done.
As a coach and a manager, this belief reminds me that the very best way to help another person is not to advise them what I would do in their situation, but to meet them where they’re at.
To start with what they’ve got, and to take the necessary stop from where they are standing.
