Blog Post – I think a lot of us can relate to feeling ‘frozen’. Not a term we often use, granted, but I think it encapsulates what I am trying to say very well. A lot of us have experienced being ‘stuck’; finding yourself in a situation where you don’t know which step to take next, or which direction to turn in. The word stuck naturally musters the visual of someone being stuck in the mud, not knowing how to step to safety.
Think about frozen on the other hand. What imagery does that give you?
For me, it’s someone on the edge of a cliff, looking into a deep, crystal blue ocean. Behind them is only grey scraggy rocks. It’s taken them a lot of effort to climb to this point; the path was uneven and steep… treacherous at some points. They considered turning back a few times, but knew the reward at the end would be worth it. Now they’re at the top and enjoying the view, but the realisation has hit, and they are frozen to the spot. Is it the fear of the unknown? Is it the worry of not knowing what to do once they’re down there? Is it the concern that the euphoria might not be all it’s cracked up to be, and that the effort was all for nothing? What if the joy is only short lived? What if they scratch themselves on a rock on the way down?
They know the options they have, but they are overwhelmed. What should they do?
Relatable? I think so. Life Coaching isn’t just about helping people find the answers. Sometimes, clients already have the answers they need, but are ‘frozen’, and are overthinking the next step. We often know what we need to do, but the prospect is frightening, or circumstances change and maybe the answers don’t seem as clear cut anymore. As a Life Coach, I can assess each individual scenario and hear out what is making you ‘freeze’. Ultimately, my goal is to help you take that leap, as long as it’s best for you.
Just think how amazing that freefall will feel…
