HOW TO KNOW YOU FOUND THE PERFECT LIFE COACH FOR YOU

Mentorship (in the form of friendship, counseling, coaching, or otherwise) if done with integrity can be the greatest blessing and so powerful for many areas of your life. However, if done with fear or pride, can be so detrimental. I’ve come to be more cautious about which voices I allow into my life, and approach my mentorship relationships with clearer, loving boundaries, and that has made all the difference for me. 

If you've been allowing women to pour into your life, or are looking for someone to walk alongside you as a mentor, coach, or counselor, it's important to ask yourself these 5 questions:

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE BY DEFINING YOUR CORE VALUES

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE BY DEFINING YOUR CORE VALUES

Values are our foundational beliefs that anchor our lives, the things that matter to us the most; the nonnegotiable characteristics that best describe who we are.

Identifying your specific core values offers a deep awakening to understanding why you do what you do. Because of that, your core values should line up with what you believe is important with how you live your life. Sometimes these values are inherited or learned… other times they are ideals. Often times, external conflict and internal turmoil are the result of opposing core values, either with others or even within you.

HOW TO STOP SELF-SABOTAGE FOREVER

HOW TO STOP SELF-SABOTAGE FOREVER

Self-sabotage: So, what is it?  It’s having a lack of self-belief and/or self worth, a fear of failure, feeling like the outsider, a consistent focus on perceived negative aspects of your self. It usually appears in the form of those pesky internal thoughts that creep in whenever a challenge, a plan or a deadline is presented:

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

I can remember journaling as far back as when I was in the fourth grade. I would often have trouble sleeping at night and didn’t want to wake anyone up, so I started writing and drawing to pass the time until morning or until I fell asleep. I fell in love with music right about the same time, so a lot of what I would write would be lyrics to my favorite songs and just my thoughts about my friends and the bands that we listened to.

BUILD YOUR RESERVES

BUILD YOUR RESERVES

Having reserves reduces stress. Reserves of what? Reserves of EVERYTHING! My stress is lowered when I know I have reserves of intangibles, like energy, and reserves of tangibles, like gasoline. Whenever the orange fuel light pops on in my dashboard, my eyes flip down to the lower right side of the dash and there it is, that little orange fuel light that says I better stop soon. If you’re like my kids, you’re thinking, “Yeah, so?” They can drive for days with their fuel light on. My tendency is to want to pull over to the first station I see to maintain my reserves. Running out of gas would not be the end of the world, but it would be a big hassle I’d like to avoid…. And it’s relatively easy to avoid: just stop and refuel.

Friend, I have a pretty deep question for you today…

What is your motive for wanting to live wisely, choose intentionally, and to live on purpose?

As you reflect on your dreams, goals, and commitments, you will begin to identify ambitions, fears, insecurities, and hopes that powerfully drive your actions. The more aware you are of what drives you, the better you become at dealing with obstacles to your success and making better choices for yourself.

MAKE GRATITUDE YOUR ATTITUDE

MAKE GRATITUDE YOUR ATTITUDE

Your attitude influences your perspective in any situation or relationship. Your perspective impacts your self-talk, which influences your beliefs. Your self-talk and beliefs are influenced by your intentional or unintentional incorporating of other people’s influences, beliefs, convictions, and insights. Strive to influence your own perspective rather than follow someone else’s. Make sure that your perspective feeds your positive attitude and creates more energy for you. Judgmental perspectives foster negative attitudes that drain your energy.

KNOW YOUR LIMITS TO SCALE YOUR CHOICE

KNOW YOUR LIMITS TO SCALE YOUR CHOICE

In coaching conversations I often ask, “On a scale from one to ten, how committed are you to this goal? Ten being ‘absolutely committed, it’s basically done’ to one being ‘I forgot the goal already.’” If the answer is seven or under, the client and I work together to adjust the goal so that their commitment level rises to at least an eight. It is only at that level of commitment that lasting change will take place.
