One of my coachees quit work a year ago. He is setting up something he has been wanting to do for a long time. He feels deeply connected within. He loves what he is doing.
The people close to him worry that nothing much is showing up as an outcome on the outside. They want him to move back to his old job. Or take up a new one. Their worry has started to enter into him now.
What he is doing is akin to giving birth. There is a gestation period. A lot happens within during this time. The changes outside may not be commensurate. It is important to not give in to voices of doubt. It is important to persist. Which is what we had a conversation about yesterday.
