Understanding the powerful Success Coaching principals of follow through & routine
Ideas are great, but they are just ideas. In order to make things happen action is essential. I always tell my Success Coaching clients that, “Ideas with out execution, are like seeds that were never planted in the soil.” Each idea is like a seed, which stores great potential. Yet with out the initial action of planting the seed, it will never germinate, sprout or bare fruit.
Success Coaching is predicated on the idea that we must not only create an action plan but we must also follow through with that plan in a systematic way. Clients don’t come to a Success Coach because they are failures, but rather because they want to be more successful. Many times the underlying issue for these folks is a lack of Routine and Systems that would help to facilitate their execution strategy.
Routine doesn’t sound sexy or exciting, at first. But, if I told you that you could enjoy your work with out feeling frantic or overwhelmed every two seconds, I bet you would be all ears. Success Coaching uses inquiry, feedback loops, and quantifiable measures to help you begin to craft a routine that both helps to facilitate execution and minimize overwhelm. A skilled Success Coach should be able to help craft a individualized, organic and sustainable routine for you to work with, while assisting in making adjustments as you determine what aspects work best for you.
Success is only possible with consistent follow through. If we think of our Routine as the car that is getting us to our goal, then Follow-Through is the gas in the tank that makes the car go. Therefore, Routine without Follow –Through, is like planting the seed but not watering it at all.
As a Success Coach, I impress upon my clients the incredible importance of Follow-Through. This essential coaching principal is all about being accountable for taking action. Therefore if you are committed to your follow through that means your are prepared to take prescribed action at the specified time, every time; and if for some reason you are unable or unwilling to take that action there is a logical & significant reason.
The reason why Routine and Follow Through go hand-in-hand is clear. However, there is a common pitfall that has claimed many dreams. Impatience is like getting sand in the gas tank, the car will breakdown almost immediately as the gas becomes useless. However, it is your Success Coach that will help you to combat that impatience, stay accountable, get REAL and get it DONE! Remember you have to plant the seed, water it and nurture it so that it will grown. Holding it in your hand does nothing, taking the initial action with out any additional follow through still won’t glean the result you desire. You have to have a plan, create a routine to facilitate your continued action, and follow-through!

How coaching supports authenticity and organic networking success
Being yourself is essential on the path to achieving success. If you don’t know who you are, how could you know what you really want? More over if you don’t know what you really want, how would you discern with any precision the right opportunities to pursue? Or know which People you should align with? These questions must all be answered. Helping my clients first answer these questions, and then take huge strides towards their dreams is what a Success Coach, like me, lives for.
“To Thine own self be true…” is one of the most sage pieces of advice still in circulation, it underscores the importance of knowing yourself. In the pursuit of our dreams it’s easy to get caught up in impressing or imitating others. However, true Happiness can only come from pursuing your dreams. Success Coaching supports and encourages authenticity, because with out it the process doesn’t work.
A skilled Success Coach will help you drill down on your “BIG WHY”, this is the reason behind the action you want to take, that will lead you to achieving the Success you desire. Your “Big Why” should be grounded in reasoning that is not only logical but individual; hence the importance of knowing what you want. Your Coach should be able to help you see how what you want for yourself may differ from what others want for you or even what society tells you should want. As a result, you will feel empowered to begin strategizing so that you can start to take action that will move you towards achieving your goals.
Your coach will also remind you that “no man is an island” and “people need people.” Therefore, its also critically important that you remember to network! However, this is an area where many freeze up. Some even skip networking all together. Skipping these opportunities could cost you invaluable resources and delay your growth. Networking is an area my Coaching Clients and I always cover, especially if it is particularly challenging for them.
The Success Coaching method is already focused on empowering the individual to identify their vision and stand behind it, thus the process organically lends its self to helping clients develop more ease & confidence when discussing their goals with others. Spending time with your Coach bi-weekly working through the fine points of your plan, discussing execution wins & misses, and honing your personal prose around what you hope to accomplish makes a huge difference. The work translates beautifully to improved communication in networking and social situations, where clients can simply be themselves and talk about what their up to with out feeling like they are selling themselves.
There is nothing I love more as a Success Coach, than seeing my clients blossom with confidence and exhibit ease and certainty when they are asked about their goals. For many gaining the ability to speak confidently about themselves in front of others is an absolute game changer. The best part is that they are able to do so from a place of complete authenticity because their actions are grounded in their “BIG WHY.”
