I hope you had a restful weekend.
When was the best time to make that critical decision that would have an impact on your life prospects? Some would answer back when deciding which subjects to study at school. Some would say the time when I had to decide which college or university to go to or whether to go at all. Still, others may say it waited until the day they knew where their passion lay. All this tells us that it was always, yesteryear. that time back in the day when they really wished they made that decision that would have improved their prospects.
Just last week, I had three different people say three different things that made me promise myself to share this thought in my tip of the week.
The first one was, "I wish I had started coaching earlier in my career". The second was "I know I have to invest in myself but, I am not sure if I can afford to do this right now", and the third was. "I want to do this but finding the time will be an issue".
Decisions are part of everyday life and we as a people build our levels of success by these decisions that impact our lives.
George Herbert the great Welsh poet once said,
"Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along".
My role as a coach is to support my clients and give them the very best service as and when they need it, at their pace and with the focus purely on their needs and wants. Each one of us has a default future that will occur on its own if our life does not change. When they come to me they are wanting their life to change.
We all have it within us to make our personal situation better than it is, it is about making that change now and not wishing we had made better decisions back in the day. It is about being decisive today. You know what you are thinking so.
My "Tip of the Week" this week is
"Be more decisive to improve your prospects now"
Just remember this
"The best time to plant a tree, was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.
