Can you afford to respond in the same way?
Many of my coaching clients ask these questions daily. Perhaps you ask them too. I want you to embrace changes and challenges as if they were adventures. To me, the word “adventure” has only positive connotations. Historically, the word means both “to go” and “to arrive.” And the bottom line is that “adventure” requires movement.
Where you are now?
Where do you want to be next?
As a coach, I often use questions like these to help you determine what is possible, what is next. My experience, after coaching hundreds of people, is that the most important question is not “where do you want to go?” but “HOW do you want to get there?” I want you to be intentional about your action steps.
One action step is to purchase and read Doug Gray’s book, Adventure Coaching.
You will gain hundreds of ideas and activities when you read Adventure Coaching. I wrote this book for people just like you who need to get off the couch, get past their fears, or embrace the next adventures in life.

You may be thinking, well, it’s just a book… how can it truly help me? There are thousands of great books in the universe. You need more than a great book. I agree with you. Coaching is a process, not a product. This guidebook will help you select a course, much like a map or a compass. But the real work comes when you work with someone else.
Another action step is to contact a coach like Doug Gray, or one of his associates for a complimentary session.
Coaching is a professional relationship, a contract that helps you achieve your goals. Like an athletic coach, I hold you accountable and teach you skills so that you can move forward on your agenda. Most of the time I ask questions to identify your strengths, resources, skills, or barriers. Coaching outcomes vary for everyone. If you were to hire a coach like me, what would your outcomes include? Can you imagine
- completing a specific action, like attracting new clients or writing that book?
- increasing awareness of your strengths and career choices?
- developing more balance in your professional and personal life?
- committing to specific performance goals as an athlete or professional?
- practicing a new behavior, that will help you attract new business markets?
- moving into a life of adventure? For a free assessment of your next adventure click here. To request a complimentary sample coaching session with Doug Gray or one of his associatesclick here.
