5 Reasons to Love Mondays

You don’t need a New Year to make a change…

All you need is Monday.

Make this the week you changed your life! 

Mondays get a bad rap as far as I’m concerned.  Let’s redeem Mondays!  Here are five reasons why I love Mondays:

  1. Attitude: Mondays are the perfect day to decide to have a great outlook and set the tone for your week.  This is also a boost to colleagues, friends and family.  Who doesn’t want to be around the person who has a great attitude and sees endless possibilities in front of them?
  2. Architecture: on Mondays you get to be the architect of your week.  You choose the structure and routine you need for your week to be satisfying and productive.
  3. Assess: Mondays are your fresh start to the week.  Now is the time to assess your goals and action items from the previous week.  What did you accomplish?  What did you mean to accomplish but didn’t get done?  What challenges are ahead?  What are you thankful for?
  4. Action and strategy: This is my favorite!  Mondays motivate to action.  What needs to get done?  What resources do you need to take action?  When do you want the action be completed?  Who do you need to help take action?  How are you going to complete the action items?
  5. Adventure: True confession, this is really my favorite!  Mondays are great when it’s a day for adventure because it’s a holiday, your birthday, an anniversary or a mental health day.

The beginning is the most important part of the work. ~Plato 

The Benefits of Working with a Professional Coach

The Benefits of Working with a Professionally Trained and Certified Coach:

Do you every wonder, “Why would anyone hire a personal or business coach?”  or “What is the return on investment or the value of hiring a coach?”

I’m glad you asked!

Coaching is proven to work when these two factors are present: The client (coachee) is willing to grow, and there is a gap between where they are now and where they want to be. That is all that is necessary for you and your coach to solve problems, create a new life, turn a business around, double sales and profitability, and design and implement a plan of action, or create whatever else is called for to ensure that you have what you need to get more of what you want.

With a Coach, You Will:

Take More, Better, and Smarter Actions Because You Set the Goals You Really Want

Ultimately, humans do what they really want to do anyway. Finding out exactly what you really want for yourself and your business is our first task together. I help you to distinguish between what you “coulda,” “shoulda,” “oughta,” and have-to want from what you, in your heart of hearts, really want for yourself. Once you create the ideal goal, you’re much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach it.

Have a Balanced Life that Works Well

A balanced life means taking proper control and responsibility for your wants, needs and values.  It means knowing how to properly and responsibly express to others what your needs are so that they can be met and still have people like you! This process is called establishing your personal foundation. You’ll love building your foundation because you know you’re worth it. You need this base if you are to be yourself and stay true to your goals and dreams.

Make and Keep More Money. You Are Worth More Than You’re Making

Money, money, money!  Like it or not, it’s a must-have in our world. You know you can make and keep more money, so why don’t you? I’ll help you increase your business, fill your practice, pay off old bills and help design a strategy for you to earn more from your professional efforts. Yes, you can!

Reach for More, Much More, and Not Be Consumed in the Process

When people have a partner they trust, they will always reach for more because they can afford to.

Make Better Decisions for Yourself and Your Business Because Your Focus Is Clear

Every single client of mine is smart, smart, and smart. Yet they still use me. Why? Because they know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is subjective enough to want a lot for them, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. Just talking about your options with someone who can listen is often enough to have it all become very clear. You’ll always get my honest, constructive views.

Have a Lot More Sustainable Energy—No More Chugging Along

When you’re happy, productive, and free from tolerations and problems, you’re going to feel better!

Waiting and Trusting

March has become a pivotal month on my professional journey.  The last time I blogged was March 2012.  On  March 22, 2011 I said good-by to a career I loved doing something I truly believed I would do for the rest of my life.  Almost two years later to the day, March 10-17, 2013, I spent in Orlando, Florida officially beginning my new career as a profession coach for individuals and organizations.  Who knew?  Well, God knew and that is what’s important.

For the past two years Isaiah 42.27-31 from The Message has sustained me:

Why would you ever complain, O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying, “God has lost track of me. He doesn’t care what happens to me”? Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come and go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.
As I waited…and waited… and waited…to hear from God
Finally, as 2012 departed and 2013 arrived Kevin and I were in complete agreement that pursuing a career as a professional coach was indeed God’s direction for me.  So we took a leap of faith and signed me up for the Coach University Core Essentials Fast Track Program in Orlando, paid the tuition, booked the non-refundable flight and reserved a hotel room.  Click here for more information about  Coach U
It was an intense week of learning and training with 16 talented, high-caliber professionals and two of the best Professional Coach Trainers in the world; both were trained and mentored by Thomas Leonard, the founder and innovator of the coaching profession and are Master Coaches themselves.  Each day brought a renewed sense of gratitude and awe that God would see fit to open this door as well as intimidation at being in the same room with a rocket scientist, college professor, global HR directors, executives and other professionals.  By day three I knew I had found my new tribe.  Still humbled but this is my new tribe.
On Saturday as we concluded our 65+ hours of course work I began to fret.  What if this isn’t what God meant?  What if we spent all this money and  I can’t do this?  What if I fail?  What if…what it…what if…
God is so good.  He hears our “what ifs” and He responds with love and assurance.  This was literally written in the sky the afternoon we were leaving.
Better than a burning bush!
Better than a burning bush!

I believe this season of waiting is over and it is time to trust God and soar with Him!
