Living on your terms

January 1, 2021

Do you feel you are rushing through life, missing choices and opportunities?

Tired of ‘going through the motions’ instead of ‘living your potential’?

Looking for more from each day beyond the race to keep up with society?

 

As a CTI-trained coach, I am fortunate to work with individuals who appreciate success on their terms, rather than those imposed by society.

For years I’ve been doing this without attaching a label to it. Now seems the right time to call it what it is: ‘Slow Lane Coaching’, coaching aimed at helping clients move with mindfulness to their heartfelt career and life goals.

Life occurs moment by moment, and we should not be afraid to live it at our own pace. At times, this might mean travelling flat out. But then, there are also periods in which the journey from Point A to Point B, C, D, or Z deserves to be embraced and experienced, even as we implement plans to reach our goals.

Coaching in the form of a confidential non-judgemental conversation, with you setting the agenda, is a collaborative relationship capable of helping you:

Clarify your professional and personal choices;
Align your life with your values, vision and objectives;
Create a life lived to the fullest, based on what is important to you.

Coaching often leads to change, action or simply awareness of the power, beauty and abundance already present in your life.

Even so, I cannot change you; only you can do that. However, as your coach, I will listen, challenge, encourage and, to quote one of my clients, kick you with compassion and kindness, for the sake of helping you let your potential shine.

To discover how coaching in English or Italian can help you achieve your goals, e-mail me (brian@bgdtcoaching.com), leave a comment below or message me for a free no-obligation appointment via Skype, Zoom or Google Meet/Hangout.

Happy 2021 to you.

Brian.

Looking back to look forward

December 3, 2020

As we enter into the final month of this ‘different’ year, looking back to look forward seems a worthwhile exercise. Noting the distance covered from where we began with our key objectives for 2020 and where we are now, gives us a perspective of our progress.

Setting aside the various obstacles we have had to face, and continue to do so in many instances, looking back to look forward offers us a moment of reflection, also regarding our attitude towards the objectives.

We know whether we have done everything in our power to reach this or that and, also if we are honestly willing to up our efforts in the case of not having hit the targets yet.

Furthermore, looking back to look forward, we are in a position to clarify what we desire for the coming months. Having this information puts us in a strong position to undertake associated actions. Choosing to use the input, remains, of course, something for each of us to decide.

Thanks for reading this ‘Looking back to look forward’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Giving ourselves permission to follow our heart

November 26, 2020

Without giving ourselves permission to follow our heart, it is unlikely we will ever do it.

Other people may encourage us to reflect on past successes and sometimes even on failures to establish strengths and weaknesses. Then there are folk who suggest we shouldn’t expect too much from “these trying economic times”.

Considering all this input, giving ourselves permission to follow our heart doesn’t seem too taxing in comparison. Listening to a variety of ideas is fine, provided we remember we are the experts on ourselves.

Ultimately, how we live life depends on our attachment to it and ‘giving ourselves permission to follow our heart’ is no worse a piece of advice than any other but, in all likelihood, much better than most.

To share your thoughts on this issue of giving ourselves permission to follow our heart, please leave a comment below.

Being clear about what we do, and don’t do

November 22, 2020

So often these posts refer to the idea of being clear about what we do, and don’t do. And again today, this theme makes an appearance.

Of course, knowing or being clear about what we do, and don’t do, is all very well but worthless if not acted on. Providing clarity about our activities, refusing certain undertakings when necessary, is related to channelling time and effort.

After being clear about what we do, and don’t do, in terms of promoting ourselves, we can follow the words of Dan Lok, entrepreneur, mentor, motivational speaker, businessman and consultant: “Position narrow, reach wide”.

To explore your positioning as part of a coaching discovery session, get in contact.

Kindest regards.

Moving from everything to something

November 12, 2020

Moving from everything to something implies we have taken the strategic step of channelling our efforts from the general to the specific.

Of course, moments change, and at times we need to juggle activities without completing any. Then again, if this style of work becomes the norm rather than the exception, it is difficult to maintain enthusiasm and motivation around key goals.

Moving from everything to something, on the contrary, underlines the importance of what we want to achieve and puts resources in place to ‘get things done’.

To explore the idea of moving from everything to something as part of a coaching discovery session conversation, get in contact.

Right now, thanks for reading this ‘Moving from everything to something’ post and please like and share it.

Thinking beyond the currently possible

November 1, 2020

Once we lift our eyes from the task taking up our energy, we can engage in thinking beyond the currently possible to see new opportunities.

Being busy is part of the identity of many people. However, if we fail to go about thinking beyond the currently possible, it is difficult to let our imagination guide us forward. Creativity needs input yes, but also space, time, and freedom from the shackles of the ‘currently possible’.

Thinking beyond the currently possible might turn out to be an exercise of confirming the present path as our best option. In such cases, discovering this won’t be a bad thing.

To join the conversation around thinking beyond the currently possible, leave a comment.

In the meantime, please don’t forget to like and share this ‘Thinking beyond the currently possible’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.
