Well it all started with a deep aspiration for personal development, and eagerness to learn. I had resigned from my job and my husband told me why don’t you check my school colleague Mohamed El Ghandour he is doing coaching. In May 2017, I attended a group coaching with him. It was a new concept of well being and raised awarness that made me more curious about professional coaching. I remember arriving to Geneva September 2017, and googling coaching schools. I came across this school recommended by the ICF (International Coaching Federation). At that time my inner voice, made me shy or made me belief that this is almost a mission impossible, time and investment wise. This inner voice, we all experience, stops oneself from excelling and keep oneself in his/her comfort zone. In coaching we call it the “SABOTEUR”. The idea was there, but my saboteur was stronger, he was keeping me in my shelter, stopping me from moving ahead, giving me all the excuses for not doing it or venturing in this experience. Till January 2019, the self talk with the saboteur was active making me hesitant. He was telling me: - Is it not worth it. - I can’t do it? - I am too old to start something new. - What if after all of this studying, I don’t like it. - I will waste money. - I don’t have the time because of my obligations. etc. I can keep listing the self talk arguments, that was stopping me from DOING IT. Till January 2019, where I met the school founder Helene Aubry Denton, a guru coach. In this meeting, the saboteur started shrinking. I knew I wanted to venture. I registered for a 1 module to evaluate the situation, which led me into a long journey in completing the process. During this period, my saboteur talk was decreasing. We all have our own saboteur. Coaching made me learn to talk to my saboteur, and limit his effect. It is true sometimes he is more powerful, but my awarness for his existence is higher. I wish I can defeat everyone’s saboteur so he can excel and discover his potential, achieving his or her dream. As a professional coach, I can help you defeat your own saboteur.
