I’ve been told I’m bossy – a lot. Mostly by family members, specifically younger siblings. But that’s a whole ‘nother topic. Anyway, I developed my style a bit and matured from someone who is bossy to someone who really does like to connect with people on a personal level.
What I found is that it’s easier for most people to look outside of themselves and invest in others. We feel guilty spending time and energy on ourselves or more likely, were using “BUSY” as an excuse to work on ourselves. It’s easier because work is well, work.
I’ve developed a strategy call “SMALL MAGIC.” Too often we look at the nearly unmanageable amount of work it would take for us to reach any given goal, and we say to ourselves, “I’ll never get there, so why don’t I just have a beer and some chips and sit in my La-Z-Boy recliner, because I work hard on something else today and I deserve it!”
Been there; done that.
I break down your goals in a small chunks of attainable milestones that are reachable and will stick because you’re not trying to conquer the mountain all at one time. The other thing about goals is we often think we have to achieve them alone. Not true. Having a coach increases your chances of success by a minimum of 67%. I’ll be here the whole way with you!
And by the way, we’ll have fun doing it….mostly.
