Here is another lesson from my spiritual teacher. This lesson can be applied to business and/or to being coached by someone, i.e. a teacher or mentor, and is something to keep in mind when someone asks you if you are coachable.
Being coachable means you are willing to let go of your preconceived notions and what you have done previously and be receptive to making some changes that are recommended to you by the coach. If you don’t make the changes, the coach will become impatient with you and will likely drop you as a client.
You have to earn to learn
Experience is the pay
The price is change
If you are slow to learn through experience, you will pay more in experience in time, for the experience will become impatient and the price of change will come harder. The price of change is the swiftness of learning. You earn through paying in the amount of time it takes to experience a change from learning. The understanding of the experience is the change that comes from the understanding which is the learning in the amount of time that the experience has patience and doesn’t feel held back from you not being ready to change.
Basically, this says that we learn lessons that facilitate change through experience. If we don’t learn with the first experience, we keep having similar experiences with a great degree of difficulty until we learn what we are supposed to learn. If we continue not to learn, the experiences become progressively more difficult. The faster we learn, the less the price of change. The price of change is relative to the degree of ease of difficulty that you create by the speed at which you learn.
Are you coachable? Are you receptive to change?
