I started doing what I thought I needed to do. I wasn’t making much progress, despite spending a lot of time at it. Then I started learning what I should be doing. Learning and learning and learning .... but, again, not accomplishing enough. The easy stuff was easy enough but I wanted to do it on my own, figure it out and do it, without paying for help, and without really venturing too far out of my comfort zone. I wanted everything to fall into place easily. It didn’t happen.
I followed all the advice: created smart goals, and a plan. I kept accumulating information (and my office space is still cluttered with piles and files of information I’m not sure I can use).
But progress was slow. What was HAPPENING? Well, I couldn’t get out of my own way – no matter how hard I tried.
I wasn’t being consistent with what really mattered because I wasn’t sure what really mattered. I was also constantly second-guessing myself. I kept asking myself the same questions, “Is this what I really want? Is it worth the effort?” Plus, I kept getting distracted by the all the strategies and my drive to learn, and learn more and more. It was consuming too much time and I wasn’t getting anywhere.
What was missing? Was it accountability? The right information? Support? Guidance? Focus?
Or all of the above?
The fact was, I thought I “should” be able to do it on my own.
But after several months I had to admit it to myself:
If I was serious about my goal, I needed help. Because I was getting NOWHERE.
I decided this was REALLY important to me … I decided to follow the lead of the 8% of people who actually reach their goals.
To make it happen, I hired a coach. In fact, I hired a few, for different reasons.
And you know what? It was the BEST thing I could have ever done.
I still have to do the work, but now I have coaches who guide me on a path that has proven to be successful ...
…. stopped me from getting in my own way.
And if I do veer off track, they help get me right back on.
I believe all people need coaches … including coaches!
You are NOT in this alone.
You do NOT have to figure everything out for yourself.
You do not have to be your own cheerleader … plan-maker … and accountability partner.
