Why Am I Here?

“The purpose of life is to discover your gift; the work of life is to develop it; and the meaning of life is to give your gift away.”

~David Viscott


We all have those moments when we ask ourselves…

Why am I here?

During the past 10 years I have learned to surrender (some times kicking and screaming) and accept the fact that there is a bigger reason and maybe some day I will find out.  Well…this week I was blessed (hmmm…be careful what you ask for!) to receive an answer.

Currently my time is split between coaching corporate teams and coaching individuals.  This week, while struggling with the performance of a corporate team (as this project was to be completed in 08/2015 and seems to never end), I asked the million dollar question “Why am I here?” to the Universe.  Several hours later I received an unexpected response from management:

Robin…you are great at herding cats!

OMG…really?!?!? really?!?  You mean after all of these years my “crazy” cats have been teaching me valuable life coaching skills?  Seriously ?!?!?!?  Any one who has known any of my cats can probably see the irony in this.

What does this mean?

Sometimes we find ourselves at a cross roads in life.  We are so deep in the weeds of our lives, we can not see the forest.  Sometimes we need someone to bring a different perspective to the situation.  Sometimes we need someone to listen without judgment as we express our thoughts, opinions, and desires.  Sometimes we don’t want others to fix our problems, just lead us into creating our own solutions.  And…

BAM…my super power emerges!
