COACHING MUNICH – About Marion Bischof

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to procure wood, assign tasks and divide up the work, but teach people to long for the vast, endless sea.

DETOURS INCREASE LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

I will never forget this moment. I was 13 years old and facing a somewhat boring Saturday morning during puberty. So I browsed through the headlines of my parents’ SZ. In the career section, my eyes fell on an article by Wolfgang Loos, who very intelligently and profoundly talked about the profession of a coach. And then there was this one moment when the sky metaphorically opened up, it became bright and clear inside me, and a voice inside me said: That’s what I want to do when I grow up! And then, I became a coach.

LIFE AND ITS BLOSSOMS

No, dandelion, of course, it wasn’t like that. Next, life got in the way in the form of my very security-oriented parents – bank apprenticeship or law studies, those were the parental options. Obediently, I complied, studied law, and often despaired at the structure and information overload. And yet, I continued. With a nice second state exam in my pocket and a mind that had learned long breath and high-resolution analytical skills, I worked for 9 years as a business lawyer in various roles and industries.

MIND-SET, HEART-SET, HEALTH-SET – WHEN ONE OF THEM GETS OUT OF LINE

But something was missing in all those years – I just couldn’t say what. The legal work simply took more and more of my energy and for some inexplicable reason, I became more and more nervous. My body revolted. Only my mind didn’t want to understand – with no alternative in sight. Today I am very grateful to my body for its signs. Because without it, I wouldn’t have kept asking myself this one wonderful question: What do I really want in this life? What is my why?

IF NOT NOW – THEN WHEN?

And then it was suddenly there again – the memory of my 13-year-old self, along with the clarity of that time. With more life experience behind me, I felt that I had never been so clear again in all the years since. So I decided to trust my gut feeling this time. Against all the “ifs and buts”, “ups and downs”… and there were enough of those in me, on the path and in my environment. And so, over time, I grew into my why. And also into the confidence that I don’t need to know every step of my path to get started. It is enough to see the big picture and take the next step. With each step, the fog clears a little more and it becomes clear that life is full of opportunities that mean well for us.
