Consistency is key and Application is KING! This can be the most ‘Wonderful Time of the Year’, or the most saddening time, dependent upon how we’ve spent the previous 12 months. If all we did was drift, it’s not going to be that great. If we applied ourselves to what we know, if we were encouraged to stretch, and did, if we grew, then there is a reason to look back with pride at our accomplishments. If, however, we just went further into debt, if we burned yet a few more bridges, if we failed in our commitment to our loved ones, and we have not provided for their future in a meaningful way, if we lost our way then this is a most remorseful reflection.
Where are you at as we move into the next year? Even a GPS needs to have your current whereabouts in order to set coordinates to your desired destination. If you do not know where you are starting then you will never develop a true plan of action. Does that make sense? Good. So let’s assess. Are you entering 2019 making more money than you did when entering 2018, or has nothing changed? Are you entering 2019 married, and in a strong marriage, or are things looking the same on the relationship front as when you entered 2018?
Have you been able to spend adequate time with family and friends, or are there some people that the demands on your time did not allow you to properly keep up with? Are you losing people? Are you losing touch? Are you doing things with your day that are dictated by someone else, some one you do not entirely care for? Do you make your own decisions, or does some other person make your decisions for you?
I know I may appear a little abrupt, and this may not be what you want to hear, but I cannot be your Coach if I sugarcoat the facts. I cannot help you if I don’t pull back the curtain on what we tell ourselves, and what the reality is. Listen, I care about you, I care about your children, your future, and their future. I want to help as many people as I can overcome complacency. I need you to know, that there is SO MUCH MORE that you could be doing, that you should be doing, and that you would be doing, if you knew how to.
Generally, when people learn how do do more, to become more, and to demand more out of life, guess what? They do more, become more, and demand more out of life! Does that make sense? I hope so. So listen, before we enter another year doing the same old – same old, and earning the same old – same old, and setting up 2020 to be full of the same old – same old, let’s take some drastic changes, let’s bring someone else in, let’s allow someone else to look at what we have going on from a point of Executive Expertise. Let’s hire someone to look at our angles, from a place completely removed, and with a perspective that is fresh, and not emotionally involved.
When we hire a Coach we get new ideas, new outlooks, and new ways of looking at old problems, we learn new tools, new methods, and ways of overcoming obstacles that have been around for way too long. When I decided to get Coaching 7 years ago I had no clue what I was about to do. I had no clue that I was about to unlock areas of potentiality that I did not even know I remotely possessed, I had no clue that my life was about to radically transform. I started with a GED and I’m now about to get my second Master’s Degree. I started unmarried, and now I have been happily married for 6 years. I started without a permanent job, and now I have a job, clients, and multiple business ventures, of which this is only one. I have successfully multiplied my income by 50.
I absolutely LOVE this time of the year! It allows for me to reflect on what I’ve accomplished, set some more huge, transformational goals for the year ahead, and reach out to those for whom I can make this an easy transitional process. I studied what was happening to me, to my life, when it began to change, and then I began to study the study of transformation itself, and how I went from somewhat of a zero to a Hero for my family. I know it may sound cliche, but if I can do it, trust me when I tell you, that anyone can do it. They just can’t do it alone, with the same thinking. There needs to be an outside agency, and external energy, a force from outside of themselves, and their normal experiences that shakes them out of their coma. I think I can provide that experience for you. As a matter of fact, I know I can provide that experience for YOU!
