Self-Coach Sunday 89: Get Off Your Butt

How many New Year’s resolutions have you picked “lose weight” or “get in shape”? Whatever that resolution has been, there are two options: toss out that goal, or delegate it and hire a professional trainer, coach or nutritionist to help get you there. Don’t wait for inspiration to hit you. That moment may come and if it does, it may go too quickly; or it may not come. Decide once and for all that this goal is important to you. Take that first step and get some help, support and a plan. Having the proper support system in place can turn a dream into an accomplishment real fast.

Self-Coach Sunday 86: Rejuvenate And Revitalize

Your environment is a reflection of your mental state. Take a look around you. What does your space say about you? How would a friend describe it? How do you feel in your own home?

I encourage you to surround yourself with beauty, and love every single item you have on display. Any items that don’t fill this goal, place in a box in your closet or give them to charity. The objective is to make your home/office not only clean and organized, but also reflect who you are.  If you want your space to energize and rejuvenate you, then incorporate items that invoke that. Start with one room. Decide what you would like this room to do for you (feeling-wise). Make this a place where you can retreat and relax. When it is the way you like, move on to the next room.

It is worth the time investment to set up your home so that it gives you energy. Take this time to make your home a sanctuary.

Self-Coach Sunday 85: Dress The Part

How many times have you bought something new that wasn’t quite right for you but it was the right price? (a dress, suit, sweater, pants, house, etc.) You then own it but don’t wear, or use it and then you feel guilty. The next time you shop, don’t buy it if it doesn’t pass the joy filter. Otherwise it will end up becoming clutter or a burden. The rule is you must feel absolutely wonderful and powerful.

Looking good is not only about the outer, but also the inner. Make sure you are giving your body the most nutritious foods. What works for you may be different than what works for someone else. Pay attention to how your body reacts to food. If you need help, hire a cook, nutritionist, or coach. Work with this person to figure out your ideal nutrition plan. Don’t like to cook? Hire a food service. Just make sure what you put into your body is nourishing and sustaining.

Self-Coach Sunday 76: Listen Profoundly

Now that you have stopped talking so much, you will have more time to listen. Are you a good listener? Most people think they are. Listening is an art, and like any skill, it takes practice. Stop worrying about what you are going to say. What really attracts people is how well you listen. The way to build trust is to listen, and keep on listening.

One rule of thumb is to talk 20 percent of the time and listen 80 percent. Try this today and see what happens. And remember, if you are talking in your head, judging or thinking of your reply, then you are not truly listening. Be aware of how much you talk to yourself, while you are listening to someone else. Then, shift your focus back on the other person. Really hear everything that person has to say.  The more profoundly you listen, the more people will enjoy being around you.
