In an attempt to make a new start, I’d attend every GURU’s conference, learn the strategies they promoted, execute their secret sauce, deploy the tactics recommended and fail miserably to launch, revive, and grow a coaching and consulting practice.
Frustrated by my lack of progress, I soon found myself drowning in my unconfessed fears of maybe I wasn’t good enough? Maybe I didn’t have what it takes? Maybe my prior success in the financial services industry was my last dance, and this was the end of the rope. And maybe, just maybe, like Mike Tyson was quoted as saying, “this life isn’t worth it anymore and I look forward to what’s next.”
