The Important Question
The first question I usually ask my Life Coaching clients is, “What are you wanting for yourself?”
That’s a loaded question because, of course, we’re all wanting innumerable things. You could probably make a list of 50 wishes, or “wants” in the next 50 seconds…easy-peasy.
But what do you really want? What’s most important?
Now, we get down to the meat and potatoes. You have to prioritize. What’s numero uno on your list?
How Can You Know?
One way to figure out what you really want is to identify your biggest problem at the moment.
Once you’ve identified what you want, you can build your roadmap to attain this prized “whatever”. This means action steps. This is the opposite of wishful thinking, similar to how exercise is the opposite of sitting, which I hear is the new smoking.
Why Go It Alone?
Can you build your own roadmap? Or would you like someone to help you along the way…to serve as a listening ear, encourager, and accountability source?
As they say, “two heads are better than one.”
Let’s cut to the chase. Maybe what you need is a Coach.
Ok. You’re a mover and a shaker. Why would you want a Coach?
There’s a commercial on TV that says something to the effect,” An object in motion is likely to stay in motion, while an object at rest probably stays at rest.”
I may not have the exact words, but you get the idea. Humans need motivation. A Coach provides motivation and keeps you accountable. This is why Mastermind groups work well. The members are accountable to each other. It’s harder to drift off course.
So, I guess what I’m saying is, as a Certified Life Coach, I’d love to help you stay on course. I’d love to see you achieve your goals.
But first, you have to know what you want. Once you zero in, you’re on your way.
So, make a list. Dig deep. Prioritize.
What do you really want?
