#Thriving October 27

Coach4aday blog posts are ideas that are shared to help people grow and learn. Would love for you to consider following the blog with one of the like buttons. You can follow by email at bottom right of post.

My twitter handle is @coach4aday2 if you want to follow the blog that way.

Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.


There can be great chapters of our lives where we enter and remain in a THRIVING mode.  It is fantastic to feel yourself flourishing and prospering. Often times that stage can only occur after you have endured the surviving mode of life.


Some people forget that life can take a quick turn and you go from THRIVING to surviving. This happens a lot professionally.  Sometimes the industry you are in is in transition and you get caught in the downward turn. It results in you losing your job.

We all want to experience that THRIVING feeling but it does require a process. Here are some tips:

  1. Be competent in what you do. Keep learning and growing even when you are THRIVING. Complacency is not a friend of those that want to flourish.
  2. If you have lost your job don’t be afraid to ask for help. In the coaching ranks I have seen colleagues avoid those that have been fired or let go. It often is an irrational fear that they believe job loss is some type of contagious disease. You will be surprised how many people have been fired or lost their job ask for help. The best leaders have empathy.

Here are some differences between surviving and THRIVING

Surviving                                                                        THRIVING

Choosing path of least resistance                               Pursuing the path you desire

Reacting                                                                            Responding

Complaining and blaming others                                Accepting responsibility

Fear                                                                                    Courage

Unproductive Habits                                                      Productive Habits
