One goal of a business coaching practice is to make it clear what a coach must practice on a daily basis to create success. Coaching must be broken down to the simplest format of what it takes to build you up personally into a person that understands themselves and their business. This will remove any doubt and erase the question of why you are doing what you are doing. Before long, you will be walking as tall as John Wayne.
Traits Displayed In a Business Coaching Practice
It all starts with pride. Pride in yourself, pride in your business coaching practice and most importantly, being proud to serve those you serve on a daily basis and knowing that you are adding value to their lives. This pride I am referring to adds to your self-worth. With a good level of self-worth one finds satisfaction from past accomplishments, motivation in the present movement and the inspiration to tackle future endeavors.
Punctuality saves lives. While in combat, punctuality can mean the difference making it home safe and not returning home at all. Given a helicopter extraction time in a hot spot, seconds can mean the difference of lifting off safely, having a few comrades wounded or even worse losing or failing that mission all together. Just as in your business coaching practice, you never want to have someone waiting on you and therefore never allow someone to hold you up. Demonstrate a sense of respect for yourself and others when it is time to show up. Better yet, be there 15 minutes prior!
The Distinctions Are Displayed While Demonstrating Discipline
It takes discipline to pull it all together. Self discipline is a more accurate portrait. You are the only one who can make anything happen. Others may motivate you or influence your actions, but at the end of the day, it is you that needs to take the steps forward in your business coaching practice. Self discipline creates an orderly life. You will be served well to develop the habit of daily self discipline by making yourself do something that you may not want to do. This could be as simple as working out or turning off the TV and making your daily calls.
You see, I have learned that in order to build self discipline, just like my muscles or my mind, I must practice daily or they will begin to atrophy and wither away. By now you can start to relate how this all ties together with your business coaching practices and every other area of your life. Be good to yourself and all those you serve.
