My One Minute Coaching Session
Imagine that I’m sitting across from you at your favorite coffee shop. For the next several seconds, let me help you, help yourself, get to where you want to be.
My first question is, “What do you want?”
Before anything else can happen, you have to be able to give an honest and concise answer.
Now, let me ask you, “Why do you want this?”
Often times, the reason we don’t make it to the top of the mountain is that we wanted to get there for the wrong reason.
For instance, rather than putting all your effort in trying to beat someone else out of a job or position, why not place your energy in finding someone who is already where you want to be and find out how they got there?
Successful people do what others won’t. It’s that simple. And, while they may become teachers, they never stop being students.
Finally, imagine that we are sitting here exactly one year from today. You have succeeded in reaching your goal and we’re celebrating your success.
My last question is, “What happened?”
What was it that brought you to this high point in your life? If you can re-trace your steps back to how you got here, you’ll have the road map to your success.
Remember, there is no wrong way if you are learning from every move you make.
An ancient Chinese proverb, translated, says, “The work will show you how.”
Well, our time is up, but perhaps your journey is just beginning!
