Get honest and focused about what you really want. This will bring clarity to where it is best to put your time, energy, and resources. You must also face the fact that the biggest obstacle on your way to achieving success is you. Brian Tracy said,"The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean un-sailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilites waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good." His words are part of my belief system and the foundation of my coaching practice. This is why I enjoy seeing my clients having fun discovering things about themselves, doing things they love and fear, creating value for themselves and gaining control of their own life.

Think back: what have been your three most fulfilling accomplishments in life thus far, that you did not think were possible? Think of the mental barriers, no matter how small, that you had to overcome to achieve these three things.

Success in life depends on you. You are in control of the outcome. Whatever path you take in your life is of your own choosing. Whether it seem like it or not, even letting someone else take control of your life requires your consent on some level. You are the source of your own failure or success. You do not need anyone's permission to change your life. The power to do so is within you. Remember: your skills, talents, knowledge, experience and attitude are the most valuable assets you have. Use them!

Change is easier than you think. Do you realize that your beliefs drive the way you respond to life, yourself and others? Therefore, give yourself the opportunity to discover your true capabilities.

Getting good support makes it easier to make better choices. If you need support, a Personal Coach can help.
