“You to don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great” – Les Brown
Everyone who ever succeeded, had to start somewhere. The first decision, the first action, the first step. With practice, those decisions become easier, the actions become bigger, and all those steps lead to massive results.
How do we accelerate the above process? How can we achieve even greater success & happiness? How can we help others to be their best? The answer is…Coaching !!
Most of us are probably aware of the benefits of Coaching other people. There are football coaches, golf coaches, performance coaches, business coaches, life coaches, and many many more.
Did you know that it is also possible to Coach yourself, to accelerate your own results & success?
Please see below, 3 easy steps to accelerate your OWN success;
1. Develop Your Curiosity – by opening your mind to new possibilities, and questioning our daily perceptions, we invite new thinking & new solutions to daily problems & challenges. If our thinking is too rigid or stiff, we will miss the opportunities that often lie directly in front of us
2. Ask Yourself Empowering Questions – One of the quickest ways to coach yourself, is by asking yourself empowering questions. Our brains are wired to find solutions, when we ask the right questions. We do need to be careful to ask the correct types of questions, as our questions are directed to our sub-conscious mind, which takes care of our Reticular Activated System (RAS for short), which works like a radar. Avoid dis-empowering questions such as: Why me? Why Can’t I do this? Why do I always have bad luck? Instead, ensure your questions are empowering, such as: What could be good about this? What can I learn from this? What are my options? What might happen if I do that? As you ask these kinds of questions, our minds begin to think of creative, empowering solutions.
3. Self Study – There are sooooo many resources available today, that can help you Coach yourself to achieve greater success. There are thousands of books, youtube videos, TED talks, blogs, groups, networks, on-line training & public seminars. You can often view these resources in the comfort of your own home, or join with like-minded people, and share experiences & learnings.
There are many other tools & tips to perfect your Self-Coaching abilities, and if you start to apply the above techniques straight away, you will see the results within days
