It’s all about luck, the pie’s only so big? “The harder I work, the luckier I get!”
Ever heard that one before? Of course it’s true if you put the effort in you’re likely to succeed, but the other thing to consider is how successful you are for the effort you expend.
There are of course many kinds of people in the world who make a huge effort, but somehow never seem to get where they think they would like to be. Others make it look easy. What’s the secret?
As your coach I help you find answers. However, all the answers that you have locked away inside you may not have a vital ingredient – belief. Or, to put it more accurately, if you’re at this stage you may not have had quite the right set of beliefs working for you yet. When you do you will be encouraged to keep rehearsing these by me. No Ra! Ra! Ra! involved unless you really want me to, but the pompoms aren’t an option. Bring your own 😉
Wait for it! … Positive mental attitude! How trite, some of you may think – you don’t have time for a positive mental attitude. You felt the fear and did it anyway and you’re still struggling. Who stole your slice of the pie?
Actually, you still have your slice but you may have behaved like you stole it. You’ve still got it, but it’s tucked away somewhere trying to get a lung full of air before it’s hidden forever.
Everyone has a slice of the pie, but not everyone knows what to do with it, or how to enjoy it when it’s right in front of them. It’s not necessarily because they’re depressed, but it may contribute down the line.
So, what are you going to do for me? You may ask … Well, it’s more like what you’re going to do for you, to be honest. You know what you’re doing, it may just need a bit of calibration, that’s all. Most of the people I coach do not know me at the beginning. Trust is essential to our coaching relationship, but if you already know me personally I will still behave professionally. Slacking off is history, pity parties are a one off at the beginning, if ever.
Get ready because you’re going to work you out.
