On several occasions recently I have been asked what in the world is up with the Spiral Staircases featured in my blog?
As most of you know, my logo has a path….that’s the path to success with coaching. I then got fascinated with Spiral Staircases and envisioned the Staircase to Success. The interesting thing about the spiral staircase is that it just doesn’t go up, it also goes down.
I often find my clients going down instead of up. Some even go one step down and then two steps up which is great. But going down for long periods of time which includes not working their goals, is unproductive.
Also the staircase is not straight down. It goes around in a circle, so that it is safer if someone falls on it (won’t go as far before stopping) and it is definitely more beautiful than just a straight down staircase. Another thing I think happens is that you can have a longer staircase without levels if it is spiral.
Now that’s a great analogy! We can climb up safely, go father up and enjoy the thrill of doing it in a beautiful setting. Shouldn’t this be what growth is all about? So I got a really elegant one for you today.
WOULDN’T IT BE FUN TO TAKE A TRIP ON THIS ONE?
To travel, all you have to do is step on it at the bottom and climb up one step at a time. Each goals you discover you want and each time you reach that goal, you have gone one more step up that staircase.
