Recently I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Mark Taylor of the Education on Fire podcast network for his Learning on Fire podcast. One of the questions he asked me was in regard to advice I would give to my younger self.
I gave a concise answer on his show but his question got my mind going and before I knew it I was opening a word document to capture all the things I wish I knew, and understood, and lived when I was younger.
What stood out for me, and I shared this on the Learning on Fire podcast, is that this is the same advice I would give myself today because these are things I know but need to be reminded of because I can fall back into my old patterns.
The mind has a negativity bias. To rewire the brain we have to consciously put our ah-ha moments into practice and set reminders.
I’m sharing these with you just in case you want or need reminding as well.
Here’s what I would say to you and my younger self…
It's about changing your mindset around "work" so that instead of taking massive action that produces a few results you are taking key actions effectively to produce greater results.
For instance, would you rather make 100 cold calls to set up two meeting with prospective clients or would you like to have an enjoyable coffee date with two connectors in your network who could introduce you to four prospective clients.
Making 100 cold calls will certainly yield you some results but you're going to burn a lot of time and energy to yield those results.
This example applies across the board in your life: in many areas of your work, health, finances, relationships - you name it!
You think you need to work really hard to get what you want. It's not true.
This is precisely what my Accomplished Coaching System is based on.
The process I take you through, starting with the Energy Leadership Assessment, gives you the awareness to identify all the areas where you are working too hard with little result. You then have the ability to make changes, internally and externally, to free up your time and energy all while gaining greater results.
It is why I am so in love with the work that I do.
If you’d like to get to know yourself better and find out where and why you are working so hard with little effort go to womentakingthelead.com/assessment/ to get started.
There is tons more I’d love to chat with you and my younger self about but I’m going to leave it here for now.
I hope this was of value to you and here’s to your success!
