Creating a road map begins with an inventory.
I have a great worksheet for you - it's free, just sign up for my newsletter to get it!
What is a goal road map?
You start with an end date in mind. Let's use the end of 2019:
Now what do you have to do today to begin the process?
What action step are you going to take to meet that goal?
One idea is to figure out: What is your ideal client?
We have all had clients we worked with and it didn't work out. Look at that client that wasn't the right fit and that can help you find the qualities you want in the perfect client.
My example for my perfect customer is: someone who wants a change, is ready to explore their options and do the work, who is ready and wants to move forward. They are motivated, they trust in the process, they embrace and expect compassion and honesty from their coach and they know that they set the agenda and need to follow through with their tasks. They understand that a coach is someone who helps them stay accountable on task and asks them questions to help peel back the layers of resistance.
As I reflect and journal over my own life, I came upon the word worthy. Here is what came up:
Let us all start the New Year with this thought!
Here is an exercise I do to celebrate the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one. I already shared it in a previous post about giving gratitude for the year [birthday post link].
Now, how do I prepare for the New Year?
I read a book, One Word that Will Change Your Life, a few years back and began incorporating that into my New Year tradition. I take the last two weeks of the year and reflect on what all I've done. I then begin to explore what I would like to come to fruition in the New Year.
I ask deep questions like, If I want success, what does that mean for me? I write down what comes to mind and I keep reflecting. As I journal and reflect, and walk, and reflect, I continue bringing up, What one word would I want to represent the year coming up?
It takes time, it takes reflection, it takes courage to really examine what it is you would like to see come to light.
So, are you ready to begin?
Go on take the leap and if nothing else, read the book, One Word that Will Change Your Life, and dip your toes into the next adventure!
I am here to help you dive deeper and explore your journey. We all need and benefit from having someone come along with us. Let me be your guide on this journey called Life.
I want to share a tradition I have every year.
It falls on my birthday.
For the past eight years, I have given gifts to others on my birthday. I felt that it was my way of giving back and celebrating the fact that I was a gift for my parents. I'm adopted and my birth mom was able to give me an opportunity to have a life. What a great gift that was!
I felt the only way to truly celebrate and honor this gift was to pay it forward. This year, I am doing a fun gift. I am gifting a vision board night to some friends in my home. I am also connecting with others who are too far away and inviting them in to the celebration virtually.
What rituals do you have to celebrate your special day?
This Holiday season, what would happen if we all put the focus on being with each other more than what we eat, get or give?
What if we chose to be present instead of giving presents?
What if we chose to give a hug a day [to keep the doctor away, thanks Grandma Jane :-)] and were opening our hearts up to the needs of others?
What would shift and change for us?
How would we go about our day?
My life is too precious to waste on doubt and worry.
Today is a gift and I will unwrap it and make the most out of it.
