Rich Rewards from Coaching

We’re celebrating!

Glance to the right and you’ll notice an award for Life Coaching Insights. Feedspot adjudged us to be one of the top 100 life coach related blogs internationally (you can click on the award to read more).

In fact, we cracked their top 20, being placed 18th – a great honour indeed.

One of the main criteria for this award was quality and consistency of the content posted.

That got me thinking …

The Law of Attraction

The fundamental premise on which the Law of Attraction is based is that like attracts like.

Also implicit in Law of Attraction teachings is the power of thought. Everything that is manifest on a physical level starts out as a simple thought.

The implication of the Law of Attraction in our personal lives is profound. We invite into our experience that which we give sustained thought to. We are, therefore, the creators of our own reality.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

Fear of Failure – Really?

The business of New Insights is in training, developing and inspiring individuals to become life coaches and, in so doing, bring freedom, confidence and growth to people from all walks of life.

Our certification programme is not ‘easy’. If it were, it would lack credibility and constitute a disservice to those who have qualified through us.

Having said that though, it is certainly very achievable for anyone with integrity, a passion for people, an open mind and a desire to learn about human motivation.

The main obstacle to success rarely has anything to do with lack of intellect, qualifications, talent, money or other resources. The main stumbling block is inevitably the mindset.

Even the most capable people are prone to procrastination, often due to an underlying fear of failure.

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”

– Bill Cosby

And yet, failure is a purely subjective concept. When we come to understand that, we realise just what a waste of time and energy fear of failure represents.

With the holiday season and a whole new year not far off, I thought you might derive inspiration from knowing that some of the most amazingly successful people started out as what many of us would term ‘failures’.

What’s holding you back?

Last night I had the privilege of speaking on teleconference with one of my Personal Mentoring Groups for life coach trainees. I asked the members: “What’s holding you back?”

From their responses, I identified two key themes, difficulty prioritising their own stuff, and a lack of self confidence.

No surprises then!

In my experience these are amongst the most common obstacles preventing people from achieving what they are truly capable of achieving.

Let’s have a look at these issues in more detail:

The Fear Factor

A wise man once said that FEAR means False Evidence Appearing Real.

The vast majority of our fears never come to pass. Experts have estimated that around 90% of our fears are based on things that will never happen!

That means we waste an awful lot of time and energy worrying about things that don’t matter!

Add to that the time and energy spent worrying about things we can do nothing about and you’ll start to appreciate how much time is wasted through worry and fear when it could be put to much better use.

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
