Even Coaches Need a Coach!

A little while ago I attended an event on mindset and how controlling your emotions can make a significant positive impact in your life.

It was during this event that I realised that I KNEW all of the stuff they were talking about – every bit of it!  And a lot of the content is what I talk through with my clients and friends regularly.

But looking back at my life, and in particular the last 12 months, I realised that I was applying only a very small number of the strategies and tools for creating a positive mindset in my daily life, and my results were reflecting that.   Even though I love my life, there are so many areas I would love to improve.

And probably just like you and those around you, while I’ve not been 100% happy with how my life’s been going lately, I really haven’t done too much about it.  Well, not enough to make a huge difference anyway!

Don’t get me wrong – I still practise some things on a daily or weekly basis, but I definitely don’t have a plan in place to really make my life great!  I’m also not keeping myself accountable to make sure I do what I say I’m going to do.

So what I realised last night was that although I am a great coach (well, that’s what they tell me), I can’t for the life of me coach myself!!  I need somebody to become a part of my team to help me to stay motivated to achieve my goals, and to keep me accountable so I do what I say I’m going to do!

So last night I made the decision to get myself a coach.  I really do need somebody there to hold me accountable in particular.  I have the power within myself to do what I want to achieve, but having somebody there who’s backing me up along the way, making sure I complete the tasks we’ve assigned for me to complete and to offer me support and encouragement that I’m on the right track, is exactly what I need.

Without a coach I know I’ll get there anyway, but I want to get there quicker, which is why I want a coach to be there with me.

I am lucky enough to have a close friend who is also a Life Coach, and we’ve agreed to coach each other, focusing initially on some short term goals, and later moving to the bigger goals.

We can only get better, right?  And having my coach right there with me along the way is going to give me the momentum I need to really make my life incredible.

So here’s to everyone all over the world achieving their dreams sooner, rather than later!
