The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…”I made a difference for that one.”
This is how I view my coaching. I may not change the world, but helping just one person is a step towards success.
Your life is what you make it. The energy you project manifests itself in all areas of your life. Learn to maximize your potential and unlock hidden sources of productivity in the process. Coaching is a thought-provoking process that supports individuals and organizations to confidently go after new ideas and creative solutions.
