The Progression



(25 points)

of Personal Development

Do you remember that person in your life who believed in you when you didn't believe in yourself? I am referring to the person who encouraged

you when you wanted to give up, the person who would not

stop believing in you no matter how convincing you were. It might have been a teacher, athletic coach, friend, uncie, aunt, sibling, minister, spouse, mother, or father who showed you how not to give up ...on yourself. That person probably with ammunition

even built a case on your behalf to prove the point and..•was

that you may have been embarrassed

or even disbelieved



him or her.

Everyone who has ever achieved anything in life has had at least one person whose support was unrelenting.

In the highly mobile world in which we live, it is difficult to surround yourself with people

who have that unconditional communicate

it is often unsafe to

about the evolution of the self. The coach's primary goal is to assist in your personal evolution. The coach needs to be able to assess where you are and what will support you in getting to where you want togo. Source:
