Are you training to win or just showing up?
Thursday, March 21, 2013
I arranged with the manager at my firm to get one on one career coaching as my new business hasn't taken off the way I need or want it too. I have been feeling very down about myself and eating like it is a full time job. The manager offered to coach me and I have reached a point of desperation so I readily agreed. My AHA moment today was when she said "am I training to win or am I just showing up?". I have been just showing up and assuming results would follow. I wasn't consistently working towards my lofty goals. I would work hard one day then just a few hours the next etc. When I lost all that weight on SP I was training and singularly focused on my goal of living a healthy life and losing fat. There was no inconsistency. There was no maybe I won't give it my all today.
So I say to you. You don't have to respond but just think about it. Be honest with yourself. Are you training to win or just showing up?
I have been just showing up in a lot of places in my life. Work, my health, my relationship. Going through the motions and waiting for my reward. The rewards come with consistency. It is ok to fail. Failure is how we succeed. NOBODY wins all the time. If they say they do they are lying. What is not acceptable is to give up. To just dial it in.
We sat down and made an action plan for all aspects of my life and I feel excited. Energized. If you are interested how we did it message me. I am happy to share the info. You can do it because I sure as heck am going to be training from this point on.
