Start with the Right Tools
I remember years ago trying to do some DIY to fit a door-lock…terrible idea. It was dismal & quite frustrating for me using various tools to try and get it right. Eventually, after I ran out of ‘common sense’, I caved in & got a builder to come round. With the right tools, what had taken me 2 and 1/2 days to try and do…. he was done in about 15mins! I realised how I could have saved myself the time & fruitless energy by getting him to come in the first place.
You might be in that position right now- alone, confused, frustrated, stuck, trying to figure out this ‘Life or business’ thing on your own.
This is where a COACH could come in to help. You have tried it all and sought ‘advice’ from friends, family, ‘frenemies’ & well-wishers, but nothing seems to progress. Hiring the right coach with the knowledge, expertise & experience will save you years of stagnation and frustration- better yet, you will start to see measurable progress in your life and business. As the Chinese proverb asserts- “If you want to go fast, go alone and if you want to go further, go together”. Just be careful that you don’t go fast to a place called “nowhere”. Invest in yourself (Just like I should have invested in getting a builder with the right tools the first time round).
A coach has the right tools to move you further with your goals and like a vehicle they can transport you there faster. Hey, do you realise that 2020 is just 5 years away? That’s a bit of a wake up call right! Well, here are some tips to help you make progressive steps towards ‘who you would like to become’ by then. I call this the CAP formula:
CLARITY. Clarity is your most powerful asset- the more you know what you want, the easier it is to move towards it. It is essential in life and business because knowing exactly what you want is really the only way to get it.
ACTION. Have an ‘instant implementation’ mind-set. A study of millionaire habits reveals that the Speed of implementation of an idea is what differentiates them from average income earners. Action is the most distinguishing characteristic of power-preneurs. Identify action takers in your market and learn their rhythm and systems. Use your findings to create momentum in your own life and business. Jim Rohn put it this way, “Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge – let it lead to action.” He understood that real action is the only thing that yields real results.
PERSISTENCE. Sometimes when you want something really badly, your strength is tested in part to grow your character into the person who can handle what you are after, and also because longevity is birthed through endurance as is durability…through resilience. Break through the glass ceiling of apathy, mediocrity and lethargy. Persist and never give up on your desires.
A combination of Clarity, Action & Persistence brings results. If you would like me to work with you on your life or business objectives, write back and let me know then we can schedule a free 15 minute consultation (worth £30) to see if we are a good fit to work together.
