New Year Resolution! Who Else Wants to Live Life?

 

New Year Resolution! Who Else Wants to Live Life?Oh my gosh! I see so many people unhappy! My life is not perfect, actually far from it. But isn’t that the point- Learn to enjoy your life where ever you are at. In yesterdays article I spoke about the mindset to create happiness in your goals. Today I will go over the steps to create those empowering goals.

 

Life is not about suffering to reach a goals, it is about growing and enjoying the journey. When I present this statement most people will answer with;

 

I agree its always about the journey, whats the point of achieving the goal with out enjoying the journey.

 

The challenge I have with this answer, is that the problem is a lot more subtle than that. Most people don’t realize they are not enjoying the journey. Most people don’t even realize that they are not reaching their “goals”. Don’t be fooled, everyone has goals whether they are written or not. Some people have impotent goals while others have very powerful goals. Some peoples goals are just to pay the lousy bills, while others want to bring peace to the world.. So today I want to help you clarify your goals.

 

Lets get started; 

1. It takes 90 days to have your new goals sink in- I am going to assume that it takes 90 days for a thought that you visualize vividly every day to sink in to your subconscious mind. To really become real for you. So if you want to hit your new years resolutions this year it is time to plan now in September so that in October you have your thoughts clear and are visualizing your plan and taking action. By January it will become be already a subconscious habit.

2.Everything today was originally a thought in someones mind- I don’t know if you have ever had your house built from the ground up. I have, and it was an amazing process. To see drawings made into blueprints. The the blueprints being made into actual reality. A thought taking form into an actual tangible object. Mostly everything that we have has been a thought in someones head at one point. An intangible turned into a tangible. That is the process of goal setting.

3.It is a process not an event- So you need to commit 15 minutes over the next 5 days to just dream. Go back to when you where a child and anything was possible. Sit and imagine that you have a genie and you could ask him/her for an unlimited amount of wishes. Have fun. Nothing is too big.

4. Find out what make you tick (I have already gone over that so I will not do it again, there is a link to that article in the resource box.)

5. We are going to start out with 5 categories.

  • Career/ Business/ Financial- How much money do you want to make? What position would you like to have? When would you like to retire? How much money would you need to make to retire
  • Personal Development- What skills would you like to have? Would you like to learn another language? How about typing? Would you like to learn self defense or survival class?
  • Toys and Adventures- Where would you like to go? What car would you like? Would you like to learn sky diving or is relaxing on the beach more of an adventure to you?
  • Contribution- Would you like to give back to the community? How about helping a friend or a neighbor? Soup kitchen?
  • Relationships/Spiritual- What kind of relationships would you like? What is your spiritual life like? Do you have a relationship with God (not with religion-that is like being in love with the idea of a spouse trough their assistant point of view.)

 

For each category you will create short and long term destinations with short stops in between. For example- lets say you want to go to Belize and SCUBA dive. So you make this your one year goal. In one year from today you will be SUBA diving in the clear waters of Belize with yous spouse (This is a true story, except we were going to go to a couples resort in Jamaica). So you decide that in order to SCUBA it is better to get certified in the states than to go and take their one day certification.

 

So your first goal needs to be -learn how to SCUBA. You are blessed, your spouse and you have a friend that is a SCUBA diver and knows and instructor that can give you private lessons. Awesome! SCUBA is a whole body experience and you find it to be an amazing out of this world experience that you will not forget whether you go to Belize or not. You see, life happens ( a major blow from a death in the family) and you don’t get to go to Belize on your goal date. Does that nullify the awesome time that you had learning how to SCUBA. NO, way!

 

Do you see how you can have an ultimate destination in mind and not reach it. But the journey was a whole body adventure. Was your destination getting to Belize only or was it to have fun in Belize. Did you have fun already? Can you still go to Belize? What happens if you get hit by a car the day before you have planed to go to Belize?

 

Get my point. After you figure out what your destination is you need to find out how to make your journey a fun one. WOW!! That is an awesome insight. I got to review my own goals again. 

Most of all have fun trough the process. This is just the beginning. The next step is to create an action plan. At first your action plan will be a rough outline but the clearer you make it the easier it will be. All this talk about SCUBA diving, I ended up giving my friend a call and we will be going soon.

Are you Struggling? Are you Coachable?

Are you Struggling? Are you Coachable? I started the article thinking that I was going to just give you a couple of pointers on network marketing but it ended up being an article on how to be coachable. If you are contemplating being a network marketing professional or have been around for a while but don’t seem to go anywhere this is a very important subject. Because Network Marketing is different than most traditional businesses.  One of the most valuable assets in network marketing is the build in coaching system. People in network marketing unlike most traditional businesses,  are willing to help you build your business. All for little to no cost to you. They usually get rewarded when you do well. But even tough this is true don’t be afraid to outgrow your coaches and even pay for coaching. Do you think Butch Harmon didn’t charge Tiger Woods.

 

Here are some points about being coachable.

1. Not everyone is coachable and you can’t force someone to be coachable. Coachability comes from within the person. It comes from the ability to listen to someone else advice.

“Never will I allow myself to become so important, so wise, so dignified, so powerful,that I forget how to laugh at myself and my world. In this matter I will always remainas a child, for only as a child am I given the ability to look up to others; and so longas I look up to another I will never grow too long for my cot.” -Og Mandino

Don’t try to make someone coachable either they are ready or they are not.

2. Be coachable yourself-  To be coachable you need to be able to take advice because you know and understand that you are not all knowing . You make mistakes just like anyone else.

3. As a coachable person you know that it is just a fact that not all advice is good but you should be able to take the advice, evaluate it’s usefulness objectively and follow if necessary. Many people that are uncoachable will take in the information and dismiss it without consideration. Sometimes while talking to distributors I can see that they are hearing me but not listening . They have no intention to follow the advice.

4. This does not mean that you need to follow everything that your sponsor tells you. It means that you should follow your companies business plan and find someone that can mentor you. That might be your sponsor but it might not. Find someone that is on the next stage of your development and ask them for help. You need to be willing to listen and follow advice (did I already say that- repetition).

5. Don’t waste your coaches time when you make an appointment be there rain, snow or sleet, show up. Don’t self sabotage

6. Network Marketing is different than most traditional businesses, be willing to try new things. The role of your coach is to guide you to success. Sometimes we know what the road to success is but we do not do the things necessary to get there. So when a coach gives you an assignment and you don’t finish it or don’t do it at all you need to find out “why”. Be open to self discovery. It might just change your life.

7. Committed to change- many times you can be caochable just because you want to change. You are sick and tired of being in the same situation all the time. But if you are not open to change you will not be coachable.

8. Open to information about themselves- to be coachable you need to be able to take criticism and appreciate new perspectives.

9. A coach does not have to be more talented than you. They just have to be able to guide you. Just take a look at Tiger Woods or any great athlete.

Find someone you respect within your industry. Someone that either has gone trough what you are going through and made it successfully to the other side or has helped others do it. Sometimes finding someone that is just above the level that you want to be is better than finding someone that is light years ahead. The person just above you can hoist you up and then you can move on to the next level maybe taking them with you. Don’t be afraid of finding someone that has just done what you want to do. You probably can get more from them than a guru who has no time for you. You can always outgrow your coach or mentor.
