Twelve Gifts of Self-Coaching

This holiday season use these tools to create instant and sustainable changes in your life. BE your own champion and empower yourself, toward the InfiniteU:
  1. Write it down – Record your thoughts, feelings, ideas, lists, goals—anything—in a dedicated notebook. This makes everything real and if you share it, makes your commitment real too. Post your goals somewhere visible and look at them often.
  2. Ask the question, then be patient – The answer comes when we least expect it. So set the intention and wait without trying to guess or worry about the outcome. Listen and watch.
  3. Promise less then deliver more – To yourself and to others. Give longer deadlines and meet them early. Watch your confidence grow! 
  4. Learn that “No.” is a full sentence – Practice saying “No” and leaving it at that. Make a list of the things you won’t do and who you will say “no” to. 
  5. Own up to your mistakes and learn from them – Take responsibility. Forgive yourself quickly and often. Lighten up: mistakes are life lessons and growth opportunities. 
  6. Adopt a less is more approach – We can do more when we have less time. Do less for more. De-clutter you life and your mind. Master your strengths rather than focusing on your weaknesses. 
  7. Reach out and connect – We are social creatures. See yourself as connected to the whole and involve and invest yourself fully with others. It’s good for your health to connect.
  8. Replenish yourself – What fills you naturally? Do that. Then do more of that. Take time to just BE. 
  9. Remember: Baby Steps – Break goals down into small manageable steps and tackle them one at a time. You’ll get so much done and you’ll be in action.
  10. Let it go, let it all go – Don’t force situations, solutions, success or anything for that matter. It will all come naturally and eventually. Recognize that everything works out for a reason.
  11. Celebrate yourself – Acknowledge what is whole and good and true about YOU. Then celebrate that. Reward yourself for your achievements every step of the way.
  12. Practice gratitude – Don’t just be grateful, live in gratitude. When you practice being thankful, you get more of what you are grateful for.

Happy Holidays to YOU and yours!
