Be Humble!


“Be humble always and identify with the common man; even when
success and achievements want to make you proud.” – Bishop
Leonard Umunna

My way of seeing goals and their accomplishment since I began coaching has always been in terms of my clients moving closer to the fulfillment of their life’s purpose. I had an “aha” moment on the train to a seminar in London in 2006. I was reading Wayne Dyer’s book “Inspiration, your ultimate calling!” when I realized that my whole life to that point had been preparing me to become a Life Coach.

This wasn’t a Mill’s & Boon romantic story that I was reading and yet there were tears falling down my face as the penny finally dropped; I am here on planet Earth to be a Coach. Everything I’d done in my past suddenly made sense. It was like turning round a tapestry that you’d only ever seen from the back, I could now see the beautiful picture of my life, no longer as a jumbled mess, but everything made complete sense.

In my view our lives are not about being proud, or about our successes and achievements, they are not an egotistical journey
where we set selfish goals so we can have, do and be more than other people. Our lives are about being on purpose, fulfilling
the calling that we were sent here to planet Earth to complete,
and to leave the world a better place than before we got here.

On this journey, we should show humility in reference to our
abilities and to see the other person’s point of view, is to vital! Wasn’t it Rudyard Kipling who said in that famous poem of his “If” – “To walk with Kings, nor lose the common touch?” We are spiritual beings having a human experience; we are called to love and to serve our fellow man and to fulfill our destiny. It is my intention to help people do this, and it is why I am a Life Coach.
