Over my 16+ years of one to one training and coaching my spirit has occasionally twindled. When a client says one thing and continually does another I become demotivated. I have found that these times are periods of growth for me and potentially for them as well. I can, together with the client reassess their needs and wants, find an alternative source of stimulus for them in hopes of re-energizing them and myself, or find a better alternative beyond my services. I enjoy best, clients that use me as a guide and not a crutch. When I find that I have not empowered but rather made someone dependent, then I work up plan, B or C, or D to keeps us engaged.
