Why being confident is the X factor of 2010

Posted by: The Coaching Academy In: Coaching Articles|Personal Success

Believing in your abilities and having the confidence to try out new things has never been more important than it is now.

When I am coaching I like to take my clients backwards and then forwards to their future. I invite them to enter a virtual time machine: my coaching ‘Tardis’ if you like – and I first invite them to seize the controls and take it back 10 years. And then I ask them, ‘How would you have introduced yourself ten years ago? What are you doing? Where are you living?’ What do you want for yourself ten years on? How would you describe your life looking forwards 10 years?

Earlier this year, the world’s first ‘virtual divorce’ thrust an intriguing debate into the limelight when Amy Taylor ‘divorced’ husband David Pollard after she discovered him cavorting with a prostitute in virtual reality game Second Life. The couple spent so much time playing the game, that when she found him at the computer watching his 3D character having sex, she considered his online infidelity as real as if it had taken place in the bricks and mortar world.
