When Dreams Keep Your Coaching Business from Growing…
We all want success. That’s a no-brainer. For example, don’t you want your dream of being a number one online coach to come true? Whether it is fame or fortune, financial security, or even spiritual fulfillment, we all have dreams. Realized dreams open you to what you think is possible and in that allows for more dreams to come true, over and over again.
We all want to fulfill our dreams.
Just one thing we want to watch out for though is fantasizing. Many coaches do not reach their full potential because they fail to differentiate between fantasies and realistic goals. When it comes to your online coaching business, foresight is everything.
It is perfectly fine to have dreams. They can give you acceptable outlets for your wishes. It keeps your hopes alive. You dared to dream of a coaching business, didn’t you? What will make the difference, however, is the ability to see reality for what it is. You should always translate your dreams into realistic goals.
Don’t run away from reality; Face it and change it.
Don’t lie to yourself. Anymore at least, we’ve all done it. We’ve all fallen into the idea of something and what it would be like to have it. But, dreams are not reality till you make them so. You can avoid this situation by setting achievable goals. Do a S-W-O-T analysis. That is, Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. (I’ll explain exactly how to do this in a coming article.) It is going to be a little uncomfortable if you’ve never analyzed your own dreams and lofty thinking before. I promise though, you will feel stronger in your business building when you do. You’ve heard it before – the knowledge and clarity you have, the more likely it is that you will get what you want.
There are no Cinderella stories, but facing demons is an every day thing.
See yourself for who you are and be free to make the changes that will pay off in the long run.
You’d be surprised what clarity of mind can do for you. Don’t be afraid to let go of ideas you have, things you thought would work and even a future you thought you wanted.
But please don’t get lost in your dreams, while the world whizzes by.
It can change your business for the better and the people whose lives you set out to change, your clients. You can be a coaching superhero! See your setbacks for just that, setbacks. With a clear and realistic plan, move ahead with your online coaching dreams.
Watch for the how-to on the S-W-O-T Analysis soon.
All my love & admiration, Michelle Anne
