'If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.' - Henry David Thoreau
Planning the future should be the most exciting thing you can ever do so why is it sometimes so scary if not downright depressing? No, I haven’t forgotten the economic doom and gloom but the opportunities are still out there if you have the right attitude and are up for the challenge and we all still have dreams . The important thing is to translate aspiration into action.
We all have a unique set of skills enabling us to enjoy our working life, achieve work life balance and fulfil those dreams. It can be hard to recognise those skills and aptitudes though, especially if you haven’t had too much practice yet telling yourself you are good at things. Having said that, even if you are the most confident person on the planet how do you translate those dreams into reality?
First Rung Coaching provides a Career coaching and guidance service to anyone who wants to take the first steps in a new direction whether leaving school or university, returning from a career break or considering their future following redundancy.
The philosophy underlying First Rung Coaching’s approach can be summed up as follows:
‘We are like acorns, each of which contains within it all the potential to be a magnificent oak tree. We need nourishment, encouragement, and the light to reach toward, but the oaktreeness is already within us’ . John Whitmore, Coaching for Performance 1992.
