Life Coaching: Why you are not always right

Life Coaching: Why you are not always right
Has it happened to you to be in a situation in which you were convinced that you are right, but then in the end it turned out that you were not, or at least not entirely? Can you recall such an example? How did you then feel in the end? Due to our subjectivity and also based on the angle from which we look at life situations, we might get the impression that we are right And that can be true, from that particular point of view. But what about all other points of view? How often do we carefully consider that? When was the last time that you were faced with a decision in which you had to argue your opinion against that of others? What were you focused on? On proving the others that you are right, or on trying to understand their point of view in order to see the matter more objectively? Maybe they also had a piece of the puzzle that could have changed your opinion. We can never know, until we give other the chance and we listen to them, in a manner in which we genuinely try to understand where they are coming from. So let’s try to listen and understand each other better, where we stand will always depend on where we sit, in our shoes, or in the shoes of others. So why are you not always right? Well because you are not able to humanly process all possible points of view from which a life situation can be seen. But you can surely reach a higher level of objectivity if you listen to understand the other people’s opinion and reasoning. However, if there is any area of your life that you want to improve or if there is anything that you need support with regarding objectively assessing your life situations, setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in different areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: How to stop struggling with indecision

Life Coaching: How to stop struggling with indecision
If the answer isn’t a definite YES, then it should be a NO. How many times have you been confronted with a choice that you had to make, but were not really able to choose one of the options that you had? Maybe you were tending to choose one option, but then the other option was not that bad either, and then maybe the third option had an advantage that the first two didn’t, but overall was not a good choice? Such a situation can leave you in an extended time of indecision. As long as you are in a state of indecision, you are not progressing on any of the possible paths of choice. Not to mention that a state of indecision can also keep you stuck in a state of procrastination, worry, or fear. So what can you do in such cases in order to get out of this circle of feeling stuck? But what if there was a question that you could ask yourself in order to make your decision process easier and faster? I have found that for me personally, eliminating from the first place all options which are not good enough, that I would not instantly choose with excitement, is the way to start. If the answer to a potential option is NOT a definite YES, then it should be a definite NO! There is no middle way to choose the best possible option. Sometimes you can be left with no options, but isn’t it better to choose something that you reaaaally want, instead of choosing something half heartedly and then trying to convince yourself to follow along?I hope that this proposed strategy will help you whenever you will struggle with any type of indecision and if you would like to work on unleashing the potential of decisiveness that lies within you, you have a Life Coach here willing to help you! Additionally,  if there is any area of your life that you want to improve or if there is anything that you need support with regarding setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in different areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: One simple strategy to reach your goals faster

Life Coaching: One simple strategy to reach your goals faster
Excitement is the more practical synonym for happiness, and it is precisely what you should strive to chase. It is the cure all! How do you feel about this statement from Tim Ferriss, the author of the book “ The 4 hour work week”? Think of one of your most important goals and now imagine that instead of pushing or forcing yourself to reach that goal, you would instead feel excitement that would pull you and motivate you to work towards your goal’s achievement!Bring that excitement into your plan and you will see how your perspective changes! There is no reason to dread the path of goal achievement, with a few small changes in perception here and there, you could build up a plan that you will look forward to put in practice! The time that you use to come closer to your goal, should also be cherished, especially since time is the most scarce resource that we have! Nobody can guarantee you that once you achieve your goal, you will feel happy or content, that is why it is very important to enjoy and to live the excitement along the path of getting there! In this episode I gave a very simple example, but this strategy applies to any types of goals.So I invite you to take the leap, and give yourself the gift of making the journey of achieving your goals full of excitement!And if there is any way in which I can help you in doing so or if there is anything that you need support with regarding setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in the areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. So I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!

Life Coaching: One simple strategy to overcome envy
When was the last time that you compared yourself to someone else and concluded that their things, circumstances or their life is simply far better than yours and that you wished you had that? Maybe a colleague at work got a better pay or a better job than you, or a friend got something that you always wanted, a house, a family, or maybe you simply went to the grocery store and the sir in front of you got the greener brocolli? These types of situations can appear anytime and anywhere, and on top of the daily situations and interactions, especially with today’s social media, it is quite easy to feel envy every now and then. But are we considering all the factors when we are becoming envious on someone? I am warmly welcoming you to the thirteenth episode of the Golden Sphere Coaching Podcast, this is your host Anda and for the next few minutes I would like to talk about and challenge the feeling of envy and to offer you a different perspective that you could apply, every time you might notice that such a feeling is knocking at your mind’s door. if there is any area of your life that you want to improve or if there is anything that you need support with regarding setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in different areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: Three useful ways to tame your inner critic

Life Coaching: Three useful ways to tame your inner critic
How many times have you found yourself criticising yourself for something that you said, for a way in which you acted, for something that you did not do, or maybe even for your appearance? Is your inner critic sometimes pointing out the worse in you? I am warmly welcoming you to the twelfth episode of the Golden Sphere Coaching Podcast, this is your host Anda and for the next few minutes I would like to offer you three ways in which you could tame your harsh inner critic!  List of socratic questions for being able to assess your life situations more objectively: ----What is the evidence for this thought? Against it? Am I basing this thought on facts, or on feelings? Is this thought black and white, when reality is more complicated? Could I be misinterpreting the evidence? Am I making any assumptions? Might other people have different interpretations of the same situation? What are they? Am I looking at all the evidence, or just what supports my thought? Could my thought be an exaggeration of what’s true? Am I having this thought out of habit, or do the facts support it? Did someone pass this thought/belief to me? If so, are they a reliable source? Is my thought a likely scenario, or is it the worst case scenario? ----In case you are struggling with some concrete situations and you need a Life Coach to help you with a specific situation, I would be more than happy to do so! Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: How being BROKE can help you discover your wealth

Life Coaching: How being BROKE can help you discover your wealth
Have you gone through a financial situation or maybe are you currently experiencing a financial situation which makes you feel that you reached rock bottom and that there is no way it could get any worse than this? Let’s explore together if it is really so! Our lives has several aspects to it, the financial aspect is just one of it. It is an important aspect, which provides us a certain type of freedom, but is this really the most important aspect of life? What if this was the only one bad thing in your life? What if in addition to being broke you would be super fit, super healthy and surrounded by a ton of supporting friends? How would you see the situation from this perspective? Does it seem just as bad? How about if on top of your great health and social life, you would also have enough time for yourself to pursue all your side projects or your hobbies?  If we systematically see money from this perspective, they tend to become less and less important in the detriment of other more important things such as health and family, for starters. If there is any area of your life that you want to improve or if there is anything that you need support with regarding setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in different areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: How would your year look like in pixels?

Life Coaching: How would your year look like in pixels?
I am warmly welcoming you to the tenth episode of the Golden Sphere Coaching Podcast, this is your host Anda and for the next few minutes I would like to invite you to explore together a very powerful coaching tool which has helped me personally gain a broader understanding on just how happy or sad my life really is, when analysed day by day along a whole year. I would like to share this tool with you, in the hope that will also help you get this view about your own life!Every digital picture is made up tiny individual pixels. If you were to look at each separate pixel individually, and isolate the rest of the neighbouring pixels, you would probably not gain a high enough level of information so that you can draw meaning from this single pixel. Only when we look at the combination of pixels together, we understand the message that is transmitted by the entire picture. By combining the pixels together, meaning is created at a broader scale. Similarly, our lives are made up of individual days, which combine into weeks and months, and usually at the end of a year some of us like to draw a line, look back at the year that passed and try to draw more meaning from it or we also try to understand better if it was a good or a bad year, judging by our own individual standards. Think of one year of your life as a digital picture made up of pixels, where each individual pixel represents a day.If you would like to work together on an accountable digital picture of your year starting from right now, contact me and let’s start! Also, if there is any area of your life that you want to improve or if there is anything that you need support with regarding setting goals, developing plans to reach your goals, overcoming obstacles or maximising your potential in different areas of your life, I would be more than happy to help you as a Life Coach. Therefore, I warmly encourage you to drop a line at sayhello@golden-sphere.com, and we can schedule a complimentary session to get us going!
Life Coaching: Just how 'well' is your wellbeing?

Life Coaching: Just how 'well' is your wellbeing?
I am warmly welcoming you to the eight episode of the Golden Sphere Coaching Podcast, in which I invite you to discover together what your current state of wellbeing!In order to improve our lives, we first have to see where we are currently at. The more specific we are with our assessment, the easier it will be to derive goals that we want to achieve and also action plans that could help us reach our goals. So if I were to ask you, what is the current state of your wellbeing, what would you say? And how would you be able to determine this? My suggestion in this episode is to go through each aspect of our wellbeing and see how we can estimate for each one of them where we are at. Wellbeing can be defined by the satisfaction that we have in our life, which of course can be very subjective and depend on a different series of factors, from person to person, and that is why YOU are the only person that can accurately estimate this for yourself, since only YOU know what is really important to YOU. Wellbeing can also depend on standing behind that what we do on a day to day basis, and wether this is a job, a study, volunteering, or anything else. The activity in itself is not important, what is important is if we stand behind it and that this is an extension of the expression of who we are and what we stand for. Spending our days doing something which we believe is not in line with our being, is just precious wasted life time. Wellbeing also depends on the quality of our relations, on the quality of our self care, and on the clarity regarding our goals in life. Let’s get more specific on each of these aspects. Listen to the episode to get more insights on how YOU can asses your level of wellbeing today!
