Woops, getting started again

You get sick. You go on vacation. You just have a bad week. Things did not go as planned and you are off track, now what?

It s easy to say ‘just get back on the horse’.  However, who are we kidding, it is just not that easy. It is a mental game. Somehow, your brain has been convinced that because you are a little off track, you may as well be a lot off track.

Now is the time to hold yourself accountable. Remember why you have this goal. Spend time remembering why you wish to reach your goal. If your fire for reaching the goal is not returning in the measures you think it should, then make yourself go through the motions. Stick to the plan. Work the plan you made.

Reaching for your goal will not always be a cakewalk, but being accountable to yourself will be worth it. Fake it until your fire returns.

Five Frogs with One Big Decision

I recently read about an old puzzle – I had not heard it before and the author said (they were) not really sure where it originated – about five frogs on a log.

Five frogs are sitting on a log. Four decide to jump off. How many are left?

Of course, it’s a trick question; we can’t know. Why?  Because there’s a difference between deciding and doing.

Making the decision is vital. It is the absolute beginning point of achievement; however without action any decision is nothing more than a mental exercise. Doing requires you to put action to the mental process. Did you decide to take yesterday’s challenge of moving 1% toward your goal? Are you willing to give that decision the legs it needs to succeed?

Helping keep you accountable to put action to your decisions is our specialty.  Call Coach T or Coach B today to find out how we can help you put movement to your decisions.

One Step forward….

If you have ever trained a puppy (or a child for that matter), there is nothing worse that when you think the training is finished and then there is a accident! Intellectually, we know it happens. We know we should expect a few accidents along the way. However, we just cannot help but feel a little defeat and disappointment.

The same is true with our journey to reach our goals. Just when we think, we have mastered the change. Just when we think, we CAN reach our goals. ACCIDENT! We encounter a setback. It could be as small as skipping a practice or feeling a little writers block. Maybe, it is huge, like illness or a vacation.

We must remember that if we can just own our accidents. We can get back on target to reach our goals. We are here to help you.

Who’s the Boss?

This is not a question about your employment. I am not even asking about you interpersonal relations (i.e. boyfriend girlfriend, spouse, kids etc), this is a question about who or what is driving the ship of your life?

To whom are you accountable? The list may be long, or it may be short. However, it is important to remember that no matter how many directions you are being pulled the first person you are accountable to is yourself.

If you have lost yourself in the trappings of life, it is time for a change. What are you priorities? Are you living in alignment with yourself or are you living a life in conflict?

Become accountable to yourself. Make a list of all the things you wish to do in life. Prioritize them and rediscover whom you are and where you want to go. I recommend the The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Life Purpose (affiliate link) as a means of this self-discovery.

The book is powerful but the self-discovery from taking the passion test is invaluable. The book can and does stand on its own and you can compete the passion test by yourself. If you prefer, you can hire someone to help lead you through the process there are certified coaches available.

Once you have aligned yourself with your passions, it is easy to hold yourself accountable to the path for your life. Resolving the conflicts of your life will unleash your inner power and let you accomplish your life’s goals.
