Would you like to know what it is? Would you like to have it, that little secret sprinkle of magic that makes all the difference in the results you get from your coaching?
The key is consistency: staying on track with your scheduled appointments. I get it. It's a busy time of year. Work is busy, school is busy, family life is busy, the holidays are coming up. But guess what? It's really no different from any other time of year. There will always be something out there to tempt you into putting your dreams and goals on hold. It takes commitment and dedication to achieve what you want for your life.
Consistency is what allows you to measure your results. How can you really measure the effectiveness of your coaching if what you are measuring isn't performed consistently?
Consistency creates accountability. The simple fact of knowing that you have a coaching call coming up next week is often the catalyst needed to move something along.
Consistency builds your belief in your own ability to create results. It helps you to establish a track record of success. Too often at this time of year, I see clients stall in their progress. It isn't because their goals aren't clear, or they don't know what action steps they need to take. It's simply because they didn't stay the course.
Consistency with your coaching calls is a model for the consistency in doing whatever it takes to achieve your goals. If you treat a coaching session as unimportant, don't be surprised to realize you are doing the same thing with your goals and dreams.
While the rest of the world is distracted and rushing around, what if you were focused, on task, and setting up the first quarter of next year to be your best ever? What would you do differently this holiday season?
