Discover your own potential!

Reaching hands

Reaching handsMost people don’t aim too high with their goals. They aim too low and then get them — reinforcing that is all there is to life.

Instead, now is your time to stop playing small, start playing bigger, and expand what is possible in this lifetime for you.

 

Ask yourself these simple questions:

1) Take a look at how you use your time, energy, and money. What are you actually prioritizing and committed to?

2) What is one treasured dream or vision you have for your life?

3) Are you living your life committed to this dream now?

4) In this moment, COMMIT to your dream or vision. Write it down and post it in a place that you will see it multiple times a day.

5) What could you be doing (even if just a small step) to demonstrate your commitment to your big dream or vision?

 

Then, schedule a time into your calendar (even if for just 10 minutes tomorrow — or better yet today!) to move yourself closer to living into your dream…your vision…your commitment to yourself.

True Secret to Success (It’s Not What You Think)

Victory

VictoryIf you’re not exercising this emotional muscle, you’re probably setting yourself up for failure.

I’m utterly convinced that the key to lifelong success is the regular exercise of a single emotional muscle: gratitude.

People who approach life with a sense of gratitude are constantly aware of what’s wonderful in their life. Because they enjoy the fruits of their successes, they seek out more success. And when things don’t go as planned, people who are grateful can put failure into perspective.

By contrast, people who lack gratitude are never truly happy. If they succeed at a task, they don’t enjoy it. For them, a string of successes is like trying to fill a bucket with a huge leak in the bottom. And failure invariably makes them bitter, angry, and discouraged.

Therefore, if you want to be successful, you need to feel more gratitude. Fortunately, gratitude, like most emotions, is like a muscle: The more you use it, the stronger and more resilient it becomes.

To learn how to put this into practice and about reprogramming your brain to become a more positive and successful person, read the full article here.

This method works. If you don’t believe me, try it for at least a week. You’ll be amazed at what a huge difference it makes!

Want an understanding of what a Life Coach really does?

Words You Will Never Hear a Life Coach Say

 

 

Man: Hello, I’m calling to inquire about your life coaching services. I’ve been in corporate America for 18 years and I’m ready for a change. I don’t like working in an office atmosphere. Back in high school and college I loved to paint, landscapes mostly, and I’d like to get back to that.

Life Coach: Well, what are you waiting for? Get yourself an easel, a palette and a brush and set yourself up on Main Street on a nice, sunny day. Quit that job. Put on some old comfy clothes. Get painting!

 

****

 

And there you have words said by no life coach ever.

Yes, that’s right. I’m stating it unequivocally.

OK, maybe there is a scenario where it could happen.

 

Man: Hello, I just won the Lotto. I already paid off my mortgage, have accounts set up for my kids’ college education, am set for retirement, helped some relatives in need, and have given to some charities near and dear to my heart. I’m still working in corporate America, but I’m ready for a change. Back in high school and college I loved to paint, landscapes mostly, and I’d like to get back to that.

Life Coach: Well, what are you waiting for? Get yourself an easel, a palette and a brush and set yourself up on Main Street. Quit that job. Put on some old clothes. Get painting! Do you really even need me?

Man: Well, I was thinking more along the lines of creating a plan to get back to my art. Maybe learn how I can apply it using new technology.

Life Coach: Ohhhhhhhhhh. Yes, of course. I can help you with that.

 

****

 

I’m going down this road now because lately I’ve noticed this resounding theme of really intelligent people not understanding what life coaches do. When I got into this profession a decade ago, I found myself answering a lot of questions about how it works. That has tapered off, so I suppose we’ve all made the assumption that people understand it now. We’re wrong.

 

Somewhere along the way, because we tend to be guiding people in becoming more self-aware and living better lives, we became known as Pollyanna cheerleaders who just throw caution to the wind and advise people to recklessly pursue their passion. I’m realizing more and more this isn’t the notion of just some who don’t cotton to our line of work, it’s even people who think coaching is kind of cool.

 

Sometimes folks who have had their dreams crushed, those who are mired in seemingly inescapable ruts, or even those who have simply settled scoff at the possibility that things can get better. They’re often angry or just so busy trying to survive that they can’t be reached. But the people who approach life coaches are often the ones emerging from that place and they want help coming out the other side. It is a privilege to be along for that ride with clients and any coach worth a damn will tell you that is not just a priceless feeling but a calling that comes with deep responsibility.

 

The transition plan is the part of coaching that seems to elude those wary of the profession. Yes, we do implement those. Rarely do we see circumstances where cold turkey is feasible. Plus, pursuing your passion doesn’t mean you can necessarily make a living at it. But it needn’t be ignored either. There is also a ‘can-do’ aspect of coaching. Most people who make their way to us need encouragement that this thing they want is possible. Even when they introduce something long-lost back into their lives, they begin to feel an energy shift. We are a valuable objective eye.

What makes you happy?

Smiling flower

Smiling flowerThe littlest things can make me happy, like the sight of a smiling child or putting a smile on someones face 🙂 Giving someone else happiness always tend to satisfy me more than when other people give me happiness.

A lot of our happiness are related to the attitude we have. If you are an optimist you tend to see the same things as a pessimist do differently and thus live in a happier world. For example, is the glass half empty or half full? The optimist creates happiness for themselves by opening up more doors to opportunities.

Here are some thoughtful questions to answer for yourself every once in a while:

  • What makes you happy?
  • What areas of your life might be hindering your happiness?
  • Which one change might bring you more happiness?

How to Be Assertive Without Alienating Your Partner

Loving Swans

Loving SwansAsking for what you want—and setting boundaries around what you don’t want—is a key life skill. But sometimes in our enthusiasm to practice this skill, we over-do our own assertiveness and end up with a partner who shuts down, gets angry or feels resentful. Here are four tips for developing your assertiveness, that can be applied to any kind of relationship you might have; romantic, family, friendly, professional etc,  in a way that will actually strengthen, deepen and enrich your relationship—thus avoiding the “alienation trap”:

 

1. Get Clear.
Being assertive starts with knowing what you are—and aren’t—willing to be, do, or have. For many of us, coming to this knowledge is a real task unto itself. Here, it may be useful to ask: “In an ideal world, what would I like to happen?” Focusing on an ideal outcome opens our minds, prevents us from falling into passivity or “victim-thinking,” and helps us get really clear on what we want and don’t want.

 

2. Set Boundaries.
Once you know what outcome you need (or want), share it with your partner. Pay attention to the way stating your boundary feels in your body. With practice, you can actually sense when you’re hitting the “sweet spot.” It can feel really pleasurable, even exhilarating, to express your needs or desires out loud. Phrases like “such and such doesn’t work for me” are simple ways of being assertive while maintaining connection with your partner.

 

3. Make a Regular Habit of Stating Your Needs and Desires.
You can build your assertiveness the same way you build any muscle: exercise. Practice speaking up about your needs, big or small, on a daily basis.  When you speak up about things that are less controversial—such as where to go to lunch/dinner, requesting help unloading the dishwasher or with a difficult task—both you and your partner get used to your assertiveness. It becomes easier for you to practice and for your partner to hear. Also, when bigger issues come along, you and your partner will have a healthy process in place for dealing with differences in needs, and you’ll have greater confidence in the resilience of your partnership.

 

4. Give as Much as You Get.
Assertiveness is a two-way street. If you want your boundaries to be respected, you must return the courtesy to your partner. If she doesn’t want you to use the bathroom when she’s in the shower, don’t. If he asks you to give him a half an hour after work before you talk and connect, respect that. When it comes to following through on a partner’s reasonable request, actions really do speak louder than words.

 

If your partner isn’t respecting your boundaries even though you’ve set them clearly, it may be time for professional help for you and/or your relationship.

 

Contact me if you want help with improving a relationship of any kind. Maybe the one with yourself?
