In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
Saying that, here a bit more on how; If you want to excel in any area of your life, simply apply the following:
Know your outcome: Start with the end in mind. What do you want? People respond best when they know what they want as opposed to what they don’t want. By focusing on your desired end result and the way in which you will experience yourself at that point (how you will be), you will be self motivated to take the appropriate actions toward the manifestation of that which you desire.
Be flexible: When you don’t achieve the outcome that you want, change your behaviour, not your outcome. Keep changing what you do until you get the results that you want. The person with the most flexibility will be the controlling element in the system.
Use your senses with precision: To reach your outcome you’ve got to know whether you’re getting close to it or further away. Look and listen out for nudges in your environment, as well as from those around you. “Tune in” and allow yourself to be guided by intuitions (as there are the inner workings of your higher intelligence).
Take action, NOW! This is personal power. Action steps show the way, as the path is revealed, and success momentum is gained once the first step is taken. Allow you actions to be inspired by the feelings that are associated with achieving your desired outcome.
Take action now!!!
As a coach I invite my clients to expand the workspace. Many limitations are self imposed. We are prisoners of our own minds. We wake up each morning and act out a story we have written about who we are and the role we play in our family, community, and organisation. We have a personal narrative about what is possible for us, what can be done and what cannot, and then we live our lives within that script, re-creating and solidifying the store each day. Through the intense and candid dialogue of a coaching relationship, we are able to learn about how we have been crafting these scripts and begin to see where we have placed arbitrary boundaries around ourselves.
One of the greatest values that coaching has to offer is that it demands action. Coaching beings with a conversation, but the real work starts when the Talent (coachee) goes back to his life and being to behave differently. Through this process, he learns that previous limitations no longer exits and in fact, they never did. He expands the range in which he can act, and in so doing, increases his “response-ability.”
