Hi there. I’m Ayako Kikuchi.
I’ve been brushing up my English for about two years, and got certified as a life coach at The Life Coach School in July 2021.
Learning English and coaching myself changed my life.
Until then, I mostly spent my time without thinking.
Through talking with my English teachers, I realized we Japanese and foreigners have different ways of thinking. What makes sense to us doesn’t always make sense to everyone. We have our own standards. I think it’s essential to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. We can receive feedback from each other by accepting diversity, which makes us grow as a person.
Through coaching, I also realized that I chose one perspective from a wide variety of options. The good news is that I don’t need to change the world. Instead, I can live my life better by changing my mind.
