Stop Wasting Your Time and Energy on Approaches that Will Never Work!
Put an Expert on Your Team who Helps You Deal with even Un-cope-able Parents
If you and I were being honest, how many times a day do you just want to throw up your hands in exasperation over your elderly parents’ stuck attitudes and actions? Probably a lot!
Next, you tell yourself, “That’s just the way it is with my folks. They’ll never change.”
Resigned, you resort to the same old tactics – begging, forcing, logic, manipulation and more. Naturally, to no avail.
You hear yourself withering, “Maybe I should just toss in the towel now.”
The Top 5 Eldercare Myths
I owe it to you to make you aware of the most dangerous myths that will only add to your aggravation and never give you the results you strive for.
- “If I just wait long enough, I’m sure my problems will clear up by themselves.” Have they done so until now? I’m here to warn you that things will only get worse as your parents’ health fails.
- “I sure wish someone else could do this for me.” Agreed! It sure would be nice. It’s just that learning the skills I teach for yourself will strengthen you as a person in ways that would never be otherwise possible. No one can really do it “for” you.
- “I don’t want to entrust an ‘outsider’ with my private family issues.” While trying to survive solo is culturally applauded, it’s a sign of strength on your part to seek help during this awful life chapter.
- “My challenges are unique. What works for others will never apply to me.” No matter your family dynamics, I’ve found impossible aging relatives similar the world over.
- “I can’t afford to spend any time or money in getting on top of this.”
Let me Burst Your Bubble.
It’s just that your very reasonable-sounding assumptions are killing your chances of ever designing and stepping into the elder relationship that can be yours.
There is no shame in admitting the truth of your situation.
The only sadness would be to believe you’ll discover the “magic formula” on your own. That attitude is like the ostrich with his or her head stuck in the sand.
Concluding you can’t afford to invest in the very solutions that will once and for all raise you out of your eldercare nightmare is to continue throwing good money after bad.
Here’s how to know you’re open to coaching.
As a coach who aims to both inspire and catalyze your growth, you’ll know you’re in an ideal state of readiness to work together if:
You’ve tried all the usual solutions and nothing is working.
You’re “desperate” enough to do something different about your eldercare situation.
You’re willing and able to get started immediately. The longer this situation lingers, the more everyone loses.
You recognize your present circumstances are costing you big time.
You value continuous learning and self-development.
You benefit from having a regular forum where you can work out your issues in safety, trust and respect.
