31 Mar / Eight Things you can easily do to get results

- How could things be worse?
- Identify a system that works for you (We develop coaching plans that are individualized)
It all starts with self-awareness: “I am here. This is now. This is my life. Accept the moment”
Examine the situation. Consider what positive things can result from this setback, major or minor. You may have to dig deep or think out of the box, but there usually is something there worth exploring.
Perspective is how we view a situation or thing. Look at it from different angles. Note the details and consider what is its common denominator.
Learn to question everything. Probing questions can help the mind explore and eventually penetrate the problem to its core. Try to be naturally inquisitive. It will help you put things into their appropriate context.
If one cannot put one’s thoughts and vision into action, they mean very little. Build an action plan from the bottom up. Although it sounds overly simplified, a good way to start is a “to-do” list.
Okay, not that you have realized that you are here now and this is your life, consider how things could be different in your life, see number seven.
Unless, a meteor will imminently strike the earth resulting in a major extinction event, things could always be worse. Think about the hundreds if not thousands of ways it could be worse.
