If you study the life of successful people in the world, their life consists of 80% routine and 20% spontaneous. This doesn’t apply to only the wealthy businessman, but to the famous artists, scientists, celebrities, singers, athletics etc. They live in an organized and structured life.
Artists or singers may seem to lack a structured or routine life, because they don’t have a 9-5 job. Now that’s not entirely true. The successful ones create structures in their life. They live in an organized and structured manner which enable them reach their dreams.
I started business thinking that I can have time freedom. Bad mindset.
“What do you want in life?” A question that I always asked my clients. The response was usually, “I don’t know. How do I find my passion?”
This is such an important question to life, but many don’t have an answer. Knowing your passion opens the door to a passionate life. Knowing your passion guide you on any future decisions you are making. Knowing your passion provides you more energy to life.
It’s such a painful feeling of not knowing your passion, isn’t it? Don’t you feel lost not knowing what do you want in life? Every week, I hear “I don’t know” from people whom I cared for. Every week I feel this same pain and lost from people who is searching for a way out.
Self confidence comes from within. But some places mentioned that you build self confidence from with-out. Example like learning a skill, achieving a goal, dressing well or changing your physical appearance. No doubt you will improve self confidence by these methods, but you don’t get to address the cause of the lack of self confidence.
A client wants me to train and coach his company staff. My response was, “seriously?”
“Why?” He asked.
“Some of your staff may resign after the training and coaching.”
He thought for awhile. Then smiled. “That’s good.” And I got the contract.
90% of my clients believe that they are not good enough. The thing is our belief runs our life. Believing that they are not being good enough doesn’t create the inspiring life that they like to have. Do you have a similar belief? How would you possess the power to be in control when you believe that you are just not good enough?
This unsupportive belief causes many to live life below what they are capable of. Did you also live life below what you are capable of? Did you miss out some good opportunities because you are holding on to this belief?
“Thoughts become things.” You may have come across it so many times from books, blogs, videos and seminars. Some of these media discuss “thoughts become things” around the concept of law of attraction.
Nope, this is not about law of attraction. We are going to discuss “thoughts become things” from a coaching perspective.
In coaching, “thoughts become things” is real. It is proven to be true many times from coaching point of view. It’s not from “I attract or the Universe provides.”
What is a dream? A dream is a voice of your heart. Do you listen to that voice? Do you act upon hearing that voice? Do you live your dream? Or do you turn a deaf ear to that voice just like many others?
I was watching the Grand Finale of a singing competition, Voice of China. All the contestants have a dream. A dream of having the world hearing their voices, a dream of having the world recognizing their talent, a dream of not letting themselves down.
One of the judges shared his dream in the Finale.
