Proactive-Coach: a larger sense of self

self improvement and motivation


Some people are content to go through life watching opportunities pass them by. They are the couch potatoes of life.

Others make plans and make things happen.

Of course, there's no guarantee that your plans will succeed.

If your priority in life is to avoid being disappointed, it makes sense to lower your expectations... to not even let yourself wish for things to be different.

The tipping point is when you become more interested in the rewards of a successful endeavor, than scared by the potential for failure.

You read this, and you ask:

“So, how do I get off my butt?”

“Aha”, I say. “You got me there!”

“What?” you ask. “You’re a coach. You should be an expert at this sort of thing.”

“Well”, I say. “This is the point. As a coach, I’m very aware that people are very different from each other. What works for one doesn’t do much for another. Motivation is not something that can be bottled -- one formulation fits all. The whole point of coaching is to work with one person, understanding this person’s unique situation, to figure out what it is that truly unlocks your potential.”

In other words, don’t waste your time seeking a universal formula for motivation and success. Instead, focus on what it is that makes YOU tick.

To get what we want out of life, we first have to know what we really want. It sounds obvious, but it's not always easy to do.

The mistake we often make is to look outside of ourselves for goal setting: "What goal should I be aiming for?".

This doesn't work for long... because true motivation is not something that can be faked.

When our goals come from the core of our being, we are fully involved in achieving them.

Coaching helps you cut through to what really matters.
