The Crutch of Coaching

I met a woman who was a Life Coach and it made me wonder what exactly she did; I mean, how to be coached about life? It’s like trying to teach a fish how to swim. Some things just have to be learned on one’s own; there is no possibility to take a short cut. An athlete can be coached, or an employee, but how to coach somebody on  living? Life is a journey, it is not an occupation. Mistakes have to be made. The whole concept of life coaching presupposes that a coach knows better how to live, than the person being coached…which is idiotic, ridiculous, and absurd. The only way to taste life is to dine with it . dwp
