Do You Really Know What You Want? I mean REALLY?

Published on October 25, 2012

When I start coaching with a a new client, there are a few questions I ask right at the beginning.

The first one usually something like, “What do you want or expect to get from coaching?” They usually reply with something along the lines of, “I want to hit my goals,” or “I need someone to hold me accountable.”

Naturally, this leads me to my next question, “What are your goals, dreams, intentions, and desires?” or “What is it that you want that you don’t have now?”

 

Here is where it gets interesting...

Virtually everyone has a hard time answering this question. It is almost always answered by telling me what they DON’T want.  By the way, it is certainly fine to know what you don’t want...it helps you to figure out what you do want. You just can't stay there and expect to move forward.

The key to hitting your goals -- Know what you DO want and focus on that! 

What we focus on is what we get. So, it is critical to keep your eye on the what you DO want rather than what you DON’T.

If you are looking toward 2013 and want to hit your goals and have what you don’t have now, download our 12 Month Intention & Action Plan Worksheet in the resource section of our website. Spend some time working through it and getting in touch with what you want BEFORE you create an action plan or to-do list for the coming year.
