How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

 

Is it a reflection of what is inside?  Or is it a reflection of neglect and what you put before yourself?

 

Many of us came to be health coaches because of our own health challenges.  We were either looking for an answer, to learn more or to be able to share the things we learned in our journey with others in order to make their lives better.

In your effort to gain this knowledge and share it, have you continued to make constant improvements…. or did you stop – to take care of others?

Life happens to health coaches too.  We have physical and emotional obstacles.  We lose focus on our own needs.  We forget that life is a journey and we have to keep moving forward to keep from falling back.

It is not okay and if we don’t address it, things will get worse.  Sometimes, because of what we do, we focus more on our failure than our special background and tools to turn things around and move forward again.

One can have all the knowledge of what needs to be done, but without the action, it is of no use.

Instead of me telling you what you need to do to reach your potential (because you already know).  I ask you to list 3 things you can do tomorrow to move told your goals.

Don’t go back to work or move on to another blog until you do that.  Let us learn from you.  Please list below 3 things you can do today…not tomorrow…to move toward your goals.

Share with your friends!

    3 things I did today to move toward my goals: 1) cooked a great meal for my family with lots of love; 2) took a long walk with my husband and our dog; and 3) finished a presentation to be given next week. Tomorrow – church and relaxing with the family!

    Ok so this resonated with me this week. With the cold weather, pending move (to storage) )and a bit
    Of cabin fever, I did stop to take care of others and uproot myself on this journey. With this timely
    Email set some fresh goals for this week, month and next month.

    1. Reinvigorated spiritual practice, including but not limited to meditation, prayer, Sat eve or Sunday morning service, once or twice a week, 30-45 min walk outdoors, fresh air and rev up the engines, 3-4 yoga/gym days, quiet time with self included here.

    2. Catch up on THCG work and sort thru my new home office space,
    A maize at the moment and continue to work toward organization. Get to work on Module 3. Continue to seek out bus atty for new business.

    3. Start and finish taxes for family member for last three years. Oops 🙂 major procrastination but
    Met with accountant today for 1st of 2 or 3 hour appts to Get This Done finally! This is in addition to my own
    2013 but shooting for completion by March 1, 2014. Big monkey on my back, but I know once complete
    Energy channels should flow a bit more freely. Counting on it anyway.

    Thanks. Cathy for keeping it real with all you do!

    I absolutely LOVE this exercise. The 3 things that I can do:
    1. Make non-negotiable time for my morning routine, which includes meditation, journaling, water, and breakfast.

    2. Go for a walk. Some days, especially in winter, it’s easy to just bundle up inside all day. Fresh air is inspirational, grounding, and calming for me.

    3. Eat on a proper schedule. Sometimes I get caught up in whatever I’m doing a push back meals. Or I forget to pack a lunch or snacks.

    Oh, and drink water! Lots and lots of water! I know that’s four things, but I value them all. Thanks for encouraging me to get that “on paper”. <3

      I know exactly what you mean about the cold. I would just like to move my laptop in and stay under the covers and warm. HA! That is one step worse.

    Today, I can —
    1) not stress over work travel and accept things as they are and know that they are out of my control.
    2) make healthy choices while traveling and not give myself “a pass”.
    3) use time on the train to work on my website and blog.

    Amen Cathy. Love this.

    I have a journal I started using this year. I’m logging in all of my priorities:

    Family time
    Exercise
    Healthy Meals
    Fun time
    Business

    And then I break down my business category into
    Goals
    Contacts
    Follow ups
    Accomplishments

    LOVE IT. It’s working!

    This is so timely! I have so many, many things happening right now that are pulling me away from taking care of myself and need to remember to put my oxygen mask on first:-) So here is my plan 1)Continue my quiet time in the mornings for daily devotions and prayer time 2) Go outside and walk/hike/run 5-6 days a week and take my big dog Henry along too 3) Take a serious look at my “to do” list and decide what to let go of. Thanks for the great reminder Cathy!

    2. Secure advertising for my retreats
    3. Invite affiliates to promote my May event
