There are several theories about the term “balance” in the context of personal development in life and business. Various aspects of life and business create complexity, and it can be challenging to establish how these aspects are developed and affected by one another. That is why it is so important to consider the effects of personal development and how it plays such an important role in your overall success in life and business.
Breaking Down Barriers
David Waldy is a coach, speaker, and co-founder. One of his many skills is that he can make a connection with his clients in a way that most cannot. This is because of his philosophy: Fierce Empathy. Being empathetic creates a powerful bond with clients and David utilizes this skill to practice seeing an individual beyond the surface. This allows him to see what questions need to be asked for his client to gain clarity and move forward.
Often, these are fierce questions that others have never asked them before simply because of ego or fear. This blend of “fierce empathy” creates powerful conversations and transformation. He is convinced that there are parts of ourselves that we’ve hidden behind the walls we’ve built because of conditioning, poor habits, and the overall challenges of life. His work and guidance help others to break down these walls, redefine what they want, establish the person they need to become, and create systems for consistency to achieve their goals.
Knowing Who You Are
A part of David’s coaching is about asking questions about the past to have a better feel of who they are and what they feel like they have been missing. The process he takes his clients through is less about him providing answers and more about helping the individual extract the answers from within themselves. The goal is to establish ownership for the individual over the ideas, changes, and systems needed for them to transform their life and business.
He understands that simply providing answers rarely creates the ownership we need to really take action and accomplish our goals. In this process, he looks to help you identify the version of yourself that you’ve been suppressing. With this, you can determine how you will tackle the business world in a way this is aligned, focused, and prepared to take on the inevitable challenges to come. More often than not, people choose David to coach them because he helps them to understand that he is not the one that is going to change their life. They are. He is there to come alongside you, ask the uncomfortable questions that you aren’t asking yourself, and hold you accountable to become the person you said you would be.
David believes that work does not simply mean putting in the hours and making a living. He is convinced that doing what you love and doing it in a way that compliments your personality is better than being trapped in a position where you’re not pursuing your potential. In his work with business leaders and entrepreneurs, David strives to help create alignment and clarity for the achievement of specific goals and to help his clients pursue their higher potential.
His methodologies create opportunities where you can be fully honest with yourself, establish clarity for what needs to change, and commit to showing up for yourself every day. His mantra is “Never Stop Becoming” and he believes that the personal development process should never end. He believes that when we stop infusing personal development into our daily lives, it has a direct negative effect on our businesses. In leaning into the process of becoming the person you said you would be, you’ll begin to see the significant effects that personal development has on your ability to more rapidly attain your business goals.
