How bad do you want what you say you want?

Do you find yourself setting goals to realize a few weeks or months later that you went “off course”?
Do you find yourself settling for less than what you want, because you feel like you have “failed” in the past at reaching your goals?
Have you completely stop wanting?

I remember watching multi-time Gold medalist Michael Phelps in an interview with 60 minutes, recalling how he lost his motivation after winning 8 Gold Medals in the 2008 Olympics. He no longer wanted to compete, and even swimming lost it’s appeal. After a few months of drifting, partying, and wasting time and energy, he decided to go back again and train for the 2012 Olympics. He reconnected with his desire to compete, and called his former coach to set up a rigorous training program. He knew that he could not maintain his discipline and commitment without having a coach.

The Coaches Training Institute defines coaching as being “co-active.” The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness, a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action, to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others, and successful in what matters most.

Why would you choose to hire a coach?
Because there is something that you really, really want, and you know that despite your best efforts, you haven’t been able to make it happen.

A coach is someone who will help you remember when you forget to make it happen! Someone who knows your big “A” agenda (i.e. your life purpose, your values, and what matters to you the most), and holds you accountable for taking steps and actions that will get you there.

In the co-active model, you get to choose the direction that you want to go, and the coach is there to remind you of why you want to go there when you lose your focus and when you “hit the wall” of skepticism.
Let’s face it, if you want something really bad, there will be a part of you that equally wants you not to have it, and wants to keep you from reaching your goal. We are born to greatness, and somewhere inside we know it!
