If you want to excel, be sure that the people who are training you, be it at the gym, the dojang, the classroom, the church, or your counsellor or parent are moving ahead in their own lives, are learning, are creating balance in their own lives.
It is important to ensure that you have teachers that have the willingness to learn and the ability to execute.
Too often I see coaches and teachers who talk about what they are going to do and then fall short using excuses as the reason as to why it was not successful.
I was part of team of volunteer personal life coach for five years. I supported many people to achieve great things in their lives. One of the greatest lessons for me was that if I was not able to learn and to stretch and to do things that were uncomfortable how could I expect someone I coached to do the same. If I had the attitude of “I all ready know that” I was ineffective as a coach.
As a parent, if you want your child to do well in school, check into see what you are doing with your life. You cannot expect your child to do well when you are eating bonbons on the couch. They will do as you do.
In 2013, it is so important to have coaches who are congruent. The one thing that will come clear very quickly is that they will not last long as a coach if they are not.
How you do one thing is how you do everything.
I listened quite disheartened to anyone who is a trainer use the words, “I know that all ready.”
Do yourself a favor and find a coach or trainer that is willing to focus on their own growth so that they truly support you. Your intuitive part of you will know the difference without hesitation. Trust that.
To find out about a coaching program that is guaranteed to move you from Point A to Point B using principles that are congruent, that make sense and are not about the get fixed quick or the force it mentality, email me at Corinne@youseminars.com.
I often wonder why we celebrate the New Year.
It is like we think we can forget the past year and start new. Or perhaps we hope so.
So is that the case?
According to your own thought processes, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about 2012? Is it the things you did not finish or the things you did not even start? Is it the things you achieved or the things you created?
Do you think about the things you did wrong or wish you did better?
Do you think about the successes and the things you did right?
Most people will have varying degrees of answers but the majority of people will tell you a little of all of it and will focus more on what they did not do or what they wish they had done better. As humans we focus more on what we did wrong than what we did right and that is the opposite of what it “should” be. At this time of year celebrating our achievements should be the focus. I wonder how many of us use the fireworks, the parties, the celebration as a reminder to celebrate our own successes.
Most of the time we hit a goal and then set a new one, not relishing on the goal
So did you set a New Year’s goal or resolution? If you did, great for you. If you did not, why?
All of the above will most likely be determined how you set goals in the past, how successful or unsuccessful you were, and where you are at in the motivational scale.
Someone asked me what the correct way of going about it was. There is no right or wrong way. A step or an action of any kind is the way. I know that some things seem daunting or overwhelming. And the first step is always the hardest. I dislike starting a project but I love it when I am started for then I am committed, I know I will continue till it is done.
So if you have set a goal, make sure you work on it diligently and kindly. Be kind to yourself and always remember that you set the goal to improve the perfection that is all ready you. it is not set to fix the problem that you have. More on this topic at a later date.
Above all else, remember to be kind to yourself. We are always so hard on ourselves. We either work too hard or too little. Get moving on what you want, and know that balance is part of the process.
