This image is a powerful reminder that a Coach is a person that helps you reach your goals.
Coaches have a unique opportunity to provide perspective, they help you to see things for what they really. Linking your goal to your goal with clarity and purpose.
I have helped many people find what holds them back and helped them create a plan to overcome obstacles and self-defeating behaviour. I remind them that they deserve everything they work for and that success is not a dream, it’s a realisation of a plan.
Everyone may have heard of SMART Goals. In my experience, it’s a simple but effective tool to get you to start making your dream a reality. I use it and many of my clients use it as a starting point.
- S – Specific: Identify in detail what you want to achieve. If you want to lose weight, or save money, specify how much…i.e I want to save R500 in 3 months.
- M – Measurable: Can you see if you are on track to meet your goal. Are you haflway there, or only a quarter. Understand why and see how you can make it Achievable
- A – Achievable: Aim low and gain confidence as you succeed. If you’re only able to save R100 per month, setting yourself up to fail will demotivate you.
- R – Realistic: If you love sweets, cakes or extra snacks, will you be able to cut down on them, have a plan on what you will be able to do and work towards that. In many cases diets don’t work because they are unsustainable. If you gradually change your eating habits, the weight will stay off.
- T – Time-bound: Have you set yourself a time-line that you can track your progress. If you know you have a specific deadline, you can work towards meeting it. If your goal is to lose weight, but you never give yourself a check-point. It will always happen tomorrow.
Coaches help you stay on task and can assist you with holding yourself accountable. The ball is yours…time to score
