gift of failure

It was one of the most challenging experiences I ever had. I was embarrassed and ashamed. But, when I discovered the gift of failure, it changed my life.

 

With trembling hands and heart beating wildly in my chest, I stood holding the letter from the Coaches Training Institute.

If I passed my oral exam, I would be holding a congratulatory letter. If I failed, the envelope would contain a letter describing the rescheduling process. A week earlier, I had taken my oral exam, the last step in completing certification as a Life Coach. For two years, I had worked hard to become a life coach, integrating what I learned in class and applying it to my work and life. (more…)

Some of the tips I share: 1. Stay away from clichés and time wasters. No one wants to read another profile that says, “looking for my partner in crime” or “I’m just as comfortable in a little black dress as a pair of jeans”. [*Insert eye roll*]  2. Get right into it, and tell people about the things that are important to you. 3. Stay away from vague adjectives. This isn’t your résumé, but rather an insight into your passions. 4.
