Coaching must cover all seven areas of life. Otherwise it is piecemeal and going to lead to trouble.
My coaching covers all seven areas of life and makes sure that the cherry picking fire fighting lifestyle does not invade good quality of life.
My coaching is inspired.
Inspiration is a thought. The animal instinct in us tries to pull us down to got to. I keep you in a high level of consciousness and show you how to stay there.
Disease, illness, mental illness, divorce and more come from lower consciousness. I demand that my clients stay on track with weekly focus drills to avoid lower levels of thought. We believe that there are no half hearted success stories.
Nature’s Universal Laws
If there was one gift you could give your friends and family it would be the secrets of life, nature’s universal laws. These are bulletproof shields against all sorts of trouble and defeat. By knowing the rules of the game, you can play and enjoy it. Nature’s Universal laws are the deepest gift of my coaching.
This is “remembering Why” part of the Strong Focus habit.
You will need your workbook, something to write with and about 25 minutes
You’ve already learned that one half of building incredible willpower is understanding what you want. Today, we’ll work on the second half. When you’re done, you’ll have what you need to strengthen your will, increase your determination and take your mental game up another level.
This about all the parts on your bicycle. By themselves, each part is unremarkable. On their own, they are useless. But when assembled by a skilled mechanic, these individual components form a single, efficient, high-performance machine. But if you remove even the smallest part, like a pedal or a cable stop, the machine won’t function. Everything has to be in place.
You are no different. All the aspects of conditioning – Knowledge, language, communication, confidence, problem solving, a focussed sense of purpose, a positive mindset, – combine to create a winning, stress shedding machine. If a single piece is missing, you won’t be at your best.
When your vision is blurred from the challenges of life and work and your brain and heart cry out for mercy, you need to remember your ‘WHY.’ It’s likely you have a vague idea why you’re striving to be more than you are today. But when you only have a vague picture, you’re not harnessing the mental strength that comes from true clarity – from a deep understanding of your motivators. When you truly know why, your willpower will be strong enough to carry you through the dark periods – even the ones at home.
So today we’re going to get clear on why you do what you do, adding another piece to strengthen your mental game. We’ll start by considering your VIP score, your seven areas of life and where you are right now. Then, look at what you wrote to “fill the gap” between your current score and your 10/10 score. If you haven’t done that exercise this may be a good time to do it. Just list the seven areas of life and your score out of 10 in each. Then, ask, what it would look like if you were at 10/10 and what needs to change from here to achieve it. Quite a simple exercise.
Let’s call those 10/10 descriptions your vision or goals.
Now create a page in your workbook titled “Remembering Why.” Create 10 boxes on this page. In the top half of each of those boxes, write the word, “Because,” and then write down the one reason you’re striving for your 10/10 in each area of life. Why you want what you want. There are 10 boxes and 7 areas of life so, there will be a few double ups.
I want you to dig deep and get to the core of why you’re on this adventure towards your personal summits (10/10). These ‘Because” are the motivators you focus on during the day – blurring the pain of your disappointments, challenges and home life, the thoughts that spur you into action. These “because” could be something as simple as. “Because I want a trophy” or “Because I want to pay off my mortgage” or “Inspiring my Family” or “it makes me a better person.
There are no wrong answers. Some of the reasons will come easily. Some will take more thought and honest reflection. Some will seem really important and others a little trivial. Nonetheless, they’re all part of the complex web of things that motivate you. This is one of those rare times in coaching where you’re allowed to take as much time as you need, so savour it. Make sure you’re writing down real reasons why you’re pursuing your 10/10’s — we’re not looking for goals here, but for the underlying motivators for the goal you’ve already identified. (not necessarily articulated perfectly yet)
So, that’s why you’re working so hard! As you glance back over them, know that these are the reasons why you’re pushing on toward that distant summit. When you ask yourself why you’re pushing yourself so hard, why you’re fighting to improve, why you’re making sacrifices to achieve your goals — these are the answers from which you can draw strength.
But let’s take it a step further. Let’s turbocharge your mental strength and start building positive habits around these reasons why. You can accomplish this by taking a positive action every time you see one of those 10 reasons. Tying actions to your reminders will help you maintain momentum and build positive habits to ensure you’re continually working toward your goal even when you’re not actively working.
So, in the bottom half of each of those boxes, under the word for because, and next to the word “Action,” write down a small, specific thing you can do when you see that reason. Keep these actions very simple so you’re more likely to do them when you see the reminder. They can be as easy as visualising yourself winning a race, reciting a couple of lines of positive self talk – which you’ll learn more about in a later module – or holding a plank for 60 seconds to improve your core strength. The reminder and action should be linked.
For example, if one of your reasons is: To lose weight ‘the action when you see the reminder is to plan a healthy meal for dinner. Or if your reason is “To be a good role model for my family” your action could be to go and spend a bit of time with your family.
Ok. Have your reminders and actions done? Now you need to keep the in the centre of your daily awareness. Writing them down once and closing up your workbook isn’t going to do it. You need to USE them. It’s time to set up a system that will remind you, on a daily basis, of these reasons.
We want to burn them into your subconscious. The more often, and the more deeply you remember why you do what you do, the easier it will be to buckle down, punch in, and do the work necessary to achieve your goal.
How you remind yourself of your reasons is up to you.
The important thing is that you read at least one of your reasons every day and take that small, positive action to reinforce progress toward your goal.
The idea is to keep you on track, inspired, and focussed on your goal as you go about your daily routine.
I recommend keeping things simple, and perhaps the best way to remind yourself of your reasons is to cut out these squares, or write them down again on a stack of index cards, and put them on your desk at work — or somewhere else you will see them. Then, each day, read the top reason, take the associated action, and then put it to the back of the deck. As times goes on, and you think of new reasons, just write them down and add them to the deck.
If you want to get really tech savvy, you could use a reminder app such as Google Keep, or just search the internet for reminders and you’ll pull up several options. Whatever you do, invest a bit of time now so that you will easily see a reminder every day.
Ok, you should have your system figured out, so start putting the system into place right away. Get it done so that, starting tomorrow, you’ll see one of your reasons, and take that small, positive, action every day. Think about it: 30 days from now, you’ll have strengthened your will every day and completed 30 positive actions that you might not otherwise have taken.
That’s mental strength progress.
It may take some practice at first, but in short order these motivations reminders and specific actions will become an integral part of your daily routine, as natural as breathing or exceeding your client’s expectations and blowing them out the window.
Make no mistake: being mentally strong requires practice. The investment you make here of just a couple of minutes a day will pay off immeasurably when you need to draw on your inner strength to get through patches or fly faster over touch obstacles. And I’m 100% certain about that.
