The first month of 2019 has been and gone. Did you make any new year’s resolutions?
If you did, have you stuck to them?
To those that did – many congratulations! Because according to Forbes.com:
‘Studies have shown that less than 25% of people actually stay committed to their resolutions after just 30 days, and only 8% accomplish them.’
I believe that goals, rather than resolutions, are the way to take positive action toward having your best year ever. Forbes agrees with me - their advice is:
‘Don’t be part of that statistic. This year, set goals instead of resolutions.’
Show of hands – how many coaches have set goals to grow their businesses in 2019?
Are any of your business goals:
• To deliver to more clients?
• Set up your coaching practice?
• Promote your training programme?
• Write your book?
• Become Accredited with the AC?
If any are, ensure you commit to creating a plan and map out clear actions to take on a daily basis. Because even if you set a goal, in reality, a goal without a plan may not last any longer than a traditional new year’s resolution.
Greg Reid, Author of ‘Footsteps of the Fearless: Futureproof your Life’ said:
‘A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.’
Do you know one simple step you can take immediately to potentially grow your business in 2019, in a manner that you personally have control over?
You can decide to invest in your own skills and credentials. I recommend taking action to becoming globally recognized as an AC accredited coach, because accreditation has the power to grow your business and help you attract more clients.
But what might prevent you from booking out the time to attend training, CPD or networking events, which will help you on your journey toward accreditation?
Maybe the perception of what it will cost and the time it will take? However, it’s all about mind-set and there is another viewpoint - one which I believe is more accurate.
It’s an investment with an attractive future return.
By investing in yourself you are investing in your business, and that investment will pay dividends.
Will you take positive action to make your dream happen this year?
