BEST COACHING SECRET #1: CLEARLY DEFINE WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY - Read more >>>
Do you know how to be happy? Living in our fast-paced world, it can be easy to lose sight of the reasons why do what we do. Can you find joy in your career? How about the activities after work and on the weekends? Do your relationships provide joy and fulfillment? Not everything that you experience will create happiness. The pursuit of happiness is part of the journey. Define what makes you happy and do the activities that will help you achieve it.
BEST COACHING SECRET #2: LEARN FROM PAIN
As I talked about earlier, not everything that you experience in life will bring happiness. Living courageously in challenging times will help you to find happiness once again. Having the ability to learn from painful experiences is the sign of a wise person. With pain comes growth in maturity. Embracing the shift of your reality can bring an expansive outlook on life and fulfillment. The best way to experience life is to go through the pain and not around it.
BEST COACHING SECRET #3. OPTIMIZE WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT
Focusing on everything will keep you from focusing on anything. No one can possibly be great at everything that they attempt to do. Identify your natural abilities. Clearly see what you are good at and focus your energies in those areas. You will greatly reduce frustration, anxiety and even depression.

Are you a person that has a hard time in saying no to the requests of others? Do you create huge lists of things to get done and never seem to accomplish them? Set goals daily that will help you to make strides in accomplishing your objectives. Then prioritize the activities that will help you to achieve your goals. Being a productive person sometimes means that you have to say no to the requests of others in order to make time for what matters the most.
BEST COACHING SECRET #5: BE PERFECT AT BEING IMPERFECT
Striving for perfection is a good thing. Allowing yourself to become anxious and overly self- critical as a result of not obtaining perfection is a bad thing. Take action and do your best to achieve success. If you fall short, give yourself a break. Re-access the situation of where you fell short and create a new strategy for achieving your goals. Maybe the old activities weren’t the best solution for success.
BEST COACHING SECRET #6: STOP THE FEAR AND START SUCCEEDING
President Franklin D. Roosevelt was famous for saying, “The only thing that we have to fear, is fear itself.” Letting fear overcome you, can lead to procrastination in action taking. Creating a worst-case scenario in your mind can also create anxiety and depression. Take a look at the facts of a situation don’t let your imagination run wild.
