Names Have Power
Daily Insight Video
Today I want to give a big “thank you” to Julie Bodnar, one of the participants in my ALC 1.0 training course. During her check-in this week, she said something about a “borrowed insight” from someone who had checked in earlier. Just like lighting, that term struck into my brain!
“Borrowed insights” is the term that I have been wrestling to find for the last decade. Oftentimes, while you are coaching someone, your client will have a brilliant insight that you would like to use in your own life. I have been searching for a term to accurately describe that moment that so many life coaches have, and I think I have finally found it. Borrowed insights.
The beautiful thing about having a name for this moment is that names have power. Once you can name something – a perspective, value, your inner self, etc – you have a reference point to use it more effectively and come back to it again and again.
