Managing the Jitters

I just finished assessing my own coaching for my next (and potentially world’s hardest) coaching certification. And based on my own assessment, I… have no idea if I’ll pass or not. 

The level of nervous and excited butterflies I have at the moment is a bit overwhelming. It’s hard to be in the space of uncertainty and not knowing. The wonderful part of coaching is learning to press into the emotions and choose what to do with them. Whether it’s business or personal life or professional development, we all constantly face moments of overwhelm.

Instead of running away, let’s choose to embrace the unknown. Press into the jitters and see what we can learn there. Regardless of the cause, we’re bound to come away with more insight, learning, and clarity about ourselves on the journey.
