I am sure everyone can relate to an aspiration in your personal or professional life that would be nice to achieve. Perhaps it is something that you really want to achieve. Yet, many of us have examples of times where our words and our actions do not match. While we say the goal is important or will make a significant difference in our lives, we lack the focus, the follow through, or the commitment to making it a reality.
While we pride ourselves on independence, we are called to be in community with others, and when you look at successful individuals, they all point to someone along the way who contributed to their success. When I launched my coaching business, I sought help from a business coach. Our weekly meetings helped me stay focused and gain the results I needed to embark on my new endeavor. Even now I work with a coach and a mentor to continue the momentum I have started.
Take a look again at your goals for 2018. Which ones are truly important to you? Which ones will be game changers for you once you accomplish them? Then, reflect on who you will partner with to see the success you desire. Ask them this week!
