Of all the life coach tips I thought that the key to success was being focused and present, but I think I got it wrong. I thought if I really wanted to take my life to the next level, all I had to do was to bring myself to the present whenever I drifted off somewhere else.
Instead of having more quality time with my family and better results with work, I became exhausted before I broke through to the other side. Here are some tips so you don’t have to go through the same thing.
Life Coach Tips No One Mentioned: Being Present Comes With A Cost
If you want to be truly present and focused in the moment, you have to put up some boundaries. Some of these boundaries go up easier than others. For example, when I’m spending quality time with my family I don’t answer the phone. This gives me the love and connection I need.
The other side of the coin of these life coach tips came up when I was working. I allowed my family to come in when I was trying to focus on work. Usually they came in with quick questions, but nonetheless those interruptions broke the flow of productive work. A one minute question took up to 5 minutes to get back into the groove. What’s a coach supposed to do? I was working longer hours than ever, in an attempt to maintain the love and connection within my family.
