Episode #127 — Own being human.

“Oh, those wacky humans!” One of my earliest coaches said that to me so many times I wanted to drive thew 1,021 miles to his office in Toronto and slap him! To be fair, his jab was always in response to me acting like I wasn’t human.

Lorry Schneider was my coach during my professional certification and for the first several months into launching my coaching practice. During that period I made a bajillion mistakes. Some were the epic face-plant kind of mistakes and some were just random little cock-ups … the kind of things that happen when one is deepening their learning and stretching into new areas. In other words, I was being perfectly human … I was just holding myself to a standard way beyond human.

Of course people make mistakes. But I don’t! “Human” is the default, I’m supposed to be better than that. I’ve done all of this personal work … I’m a Coach now … I shouldn’t be making mistakes like this anymore!

I said all kinds of shit like that (and more). All all Lorry would say is … “Oh, those wacky humans!” (Now do you understand why I wanted to drive the 1,643 km?!?)

That kind of self-talk is self-abuse. And this is no time for self-abuse. We are all trying to find our way. And not just during the current pandemic and cultural spasm, awakening, and realignment … that kind of self-abuse is NEVER useful. It serves no purpose. It only robs us of energy and slows our growth.

As long as we’re human we’re going to be making mistakes. May as well enjoy them.

What mistakes will you enjoy this week?
