Nothing Succeeds Like Success

Take a few minutes to look back on what you’ve accomplished. Then keep going.

One really way to stay motivated is to review how well you’re doing with these three “Ss” in mind:

  • satisfaction
  • success
  • strengths

Satisfaction

Make a quick list of all the things you’ve improved since starting with coaching.

For instance:

  • Do you feel better now than you did on your first day?
  • Do you walk taller, more confidently?
  • Do you make better choices?
  • Have you found your mojo?
  • Are your clothes fitting better?
  • Are you stronger?

Review your list.

Take a moment to feel good about each one of these things. You did that.

To stay motivated, have practices of continually reviewing, recognizing, and rewarding progress.

Make your list of accomplishments.

Give yourself props for what you’ve done so far. Feel satisfied. Feel proud.

Then use this list as inspiration to keep climbing.

Yet satisfaction and pride in our accomplishments is essential.

In order to stay motivated, we need to review, recognize, and reward progress.

Today, make your list of accomplishments.

Give yourself a high-five for what you’ve done so far. Feel satisfied. Feel proud.

Then use this list as inspiration to keep climbing.

Success

To succeed with healthy changes, you don’t have to be “special” or “genetically gifted” or “talented.”

You need to work hard, be consistent, stay positive, and just keep showing up.

While you’re still tackling your difficult challenges and fears, finding and address your limiting factors …

Keep focusing mostly on what you’re doing right. On what you can do. Will do. Have, in fact, already done.

For example:

  • If you’ve successfully made it to the gym 2 days a week for several months, that’s great! Now, let’s see if we can get you going one more day. After all, you’ve already managed your 2-day routine.
  • If you’ve successfully cooked three new protein- and veggie-rich dishes, that’s great! Now we know you can follow a recipe — so let’s add two more.
  • If you’ve lifted 50 pounds, that’s great! We now know that 60 pounds or 70 pounds — or maybe even 100 pounds — is just around the corner.

Use your success as a foundation to build motivation.

Nothing succeeds like success, as the saying goes.

In what ways have you succeeded so far?

How can you help yourself do more of that?

Strengths

If you’re like most people, working on addressing your “weaknesses”, “flaws”, and “errors” aren’t very inspiring.

Research shows that we do much better — and stay motivated — when we focus on the positive:

  • Identify what is working, and do more of that
  • Find strengths, and figure out how to make them work for you
  • Find people who are strong and successful in this area, and imitate them

When it comes to coaching, where are your strengths?

How can you develop them even further?
