    • Problem relates to the threat of physical, mental, or emotional harm which must be addressed or eliminated.
    • If what is viewed as a problem results in some degree of harm, it is not a problem. It is a reality.
    • All problems have solutions; therefore, an attempt to answer the call of a problem may not eliminate it.
    • Problems need to be solved quickly and effectively. When a problem is not effectively addressed and solved, it threatens the entire being by draining energy, time and resources.
  57. What are the distinctions between Consideration vs. Problem within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (3 each)
    • Consideration relates to something which comes to conscious awareness which may or may not call for attention.

    • Although there may be many options, one may not always realize they are at the point of choice.
    • Choice is a commitment which arises from a sense of self and recognition of free will in the process of reality creation.
    • Decision is the mental or linear activity which aligns choice and action.
    • When these elements are not present, a decision is the mental effort and energy expended to navigate the options present in order to achieve the most desirable outcome.
  59. What are the distinctions between Choice vs. Consequence Avoidance within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (4 & 2)
    • Choice is a conscious, heart-centered, three dimensional (mind, body, spirit) action which results in creation.
    • When these elements are not present, choice is a haphazard approach to living which allows one to avoid responsibility and accountability.
    • Although there may be many options, one may not always realize they are at the point of choice.
    • Choice is a commitment which arises from a sense of self and recognition of free will in the process of reality creation.
    • Consequence Avoidance is a process of selecting action which will most likely result in the most comfortable or desirable outcome.
    • Consequence Avoidance is not clear, conscious or heart-centered choice in that it is done to eliminate rather than create.
  60. What are the distinctions between Desire vs. Value within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (4 & 2)
    • Desire is a tool of conscious reality creation which evolves from vision and supports conscious choice.

    • Desire is a consciousness of one's authentic identity and a means of inner support of personal growth.
    • Value relates to who the individual knows themselves to be and how their being is aligned with what is really important.
    • Values encompass qualities, interests or aspects of life which have and continue to attract energy and attention within the individual.
  61. What are the distinctions between Means Something vs. Doesn't Matter within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (2 each)
    • Means Something attaches meaning to unrelated events, past events and the possibility of more severe consequences than before rather than what is actually going on now.
    • Events and consequences attached to current reality give rise to an exaggerated expectation of what will happen or could happen because of what has happened. There is an indication of fear and a healing opportunity.
    • Doesn't Matter often refers to something that matters to someone else the client is attempting to please or gain the acceptance and/or approval of which is creating incongruence, upset, distraction or difficulty in consciousness.
    • Doesn't Matter may also arise from pressing or recurring challenges that distract the client's energy and attention but offer no value of what truly matters to and for the client. In severe cases, may be an idea, role, responsibility, activity or event to which the client has pledged allegiance because it once mattered and, although it no longer has meaning, the client has guilt or resistence to releasing it.

    • Possibility relates to an inspired opportunity to create or shift in order to realize a desire or stated intention.

    • Possibility is the opportunity to expand what is already present.
    • Pipedream relates to mental and emotional attachment to something, someone or anything that fills a void.
    • Pipedream is an escape from what is present driven by fear or discomfort on the internal landscape.
    • Pipedream is a form of distraction grounded in illusions that are used to escape the responsibility of the conscious creation of reality.
    • Often, a pipedream is sought in an attempt for the individual to gain some sense of self, meaning or value after comparing themselves to others.
  63. What are the distinctions between Preference vs. Need within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (3 each)
    • Preference relates to that which is most comfortable but not required or necessary.
    • In most instances, a preference is a luxury called forward to support the maintenance of control and support of some internal or external paradigm.
    • Preferences do not facilitate shift, growth or personal development. More often than not, they are an escape from doing what is actually required.
    • Need relates to anything that is required to support maintenance or advancement of internal and external integrity.
    • Needs generally relate to the provision or acquisition of food, clothing, shelter and resources that support the general well-being of the individual.
    • Needs can rarely be compromised and generally encourage the presence of a demand when they are threatened.
    • Until needs are met, one cannot afford the luxury of a preference.
  64. What are the distinctions between Solution vs. Answer within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (3 each)
    • Solution is the process or action taken to stop a challenge from ever occurring again.
    • Solutions address both what is occurring at the physical level of reality and the cause that gives rise to the presence of the situation.
    • Most solutions are permanent because they require a shift of some type to occur.
    • Answer relates to action taken to end a challenge.
    • Answers handle the immediate problem, however, it does not guarantee that the same problem will not reoccur.
    • Most answers effect a temporary change because they do not require any level of internal or external shift in the individual or physical environment.
  65. What are the distinctions between Vision vs. Pipedream within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (4 each)
    • Vision is an internally generated picture of a clear outcome that is in alignment with all levels of the individual.
    • A vision generally unfolds within and through consciousness rather than being something which comes to the individual from the outside.
    • Vision provides a point of focus which calls the individual forward into action, behavior and stages of development which generate and require shifts.
    • A vision almost always facilitates healing and growth at all levels of being.
    • Pipedream relates to mental and emotional attachment to something, someone or anything that fills a void.
    • Pipedream is an escape from what is present driven by fear or discomfort on the internal landscape.
    • Pipedream is a form of distraction grounded in illusions that are used to escape the responsibility of the conscious creation of reality.
    • Often, a pipedream is sought in an attempt for the individual to gain some sense of self, meaning or value after comparing themselves to others.
  66. What are the distinctions between Want vs. Could, Should, Ought within the What step of the Basic Coaching Model? (2 & 1)
    • Want relates to the temporary satisfaction of addiction, reaction, fantasy, whims or external expectation which often has no lasting or beneficial impact on long term intentions.
    • Often the source of distraction is a diversion because it is generally not strong enough or powerful enough to cause or support taking action.
