Often when we stand in front of a very tough decision in life, we are blurred by many feelings and emotions. Rationally, we know the answer, but we simply don’t lack the courage to face the grim truth. Moreover, we lack even more the guts to actually execute on them. In such situation, a good and strong coach can help one to clear off the disturbing fog to see the obvious answer. And they can be the solid rock and to release our inner forces to actually reach our tremendous goals.
Some years ago, I was facing the toughest personal crisis in life till date. Although the direction forward was supposed to be eminent, I just was not convinced. There were too many hesitations and too many doubts.
Thomas Chr. Melskens helped me as a life coach through the process to clear my mind, and to focus on the obvious. But most importantly, Thomas coached me through the entire process of implementing the change. He challenged me during the moments I was weak and tempted to take the easy way out. He encouraged me at each of the steps I took towards my goal.
Thomas is an eminent listener with a tremendous ability to show genuine support and care. He didn’t tell me anything I didn’t know before; I didn’t conclude anything that I couldn’t have arrived at without him. And he didn’t take any action on my behalf. But yet it all wouldn’t have happened in this constructive way without him and his coaching.
Thomas has himself gone all the way through some of the toughest challenges that life has presented to him. And his greatest strength is his enormous positive energy. No matter how much beaten up he has been, he always gets up on his feet and smile to the world. And this positive energy of his is highly contagious through the coaching sessions with him. I am deeply thankful for the support and guidance I have received from Thomas.
