Excellence – the quality of being outstanding or extremely good

What would excellence look like in your life? Would you have your dream job? Are you living in a new city? Could it involve spending more time with your family? Or is it simply having more money in your bank account? It’s easy to see that excellence, means different things to different people. Reaching your full potential is one way to think about achieving excellence in your life. Life coaching can help you clarify your definition of success and how to excel in what ever you choose to do.

Utilizing your talents is one of the foundation principles to reach excellence. When you focus on your natural talents, things seem to flow and come easy for you. Instead of struggling to get up in the morning or complete a project, you are passionate and making the most of your time. Finding ways to enhance your strengths and reach your full potential can be discussed in life coaching sessions. Use these questions to tap into your natural talents on your quest for excellence!

What comes naturally to you? What are you good at? Make a list of things or tasks that are easy for you. Think about things that feel effortless when you are doing them. Are you natural connector, easily making introductions and getting people together? Can you strategically map out goals and execute your plans? Usually your talents are some of the first ten things that come to mind.

What do others compliment you on? Is there a pattern or recurring them? Sometimes other people can provide insight into our special qualities. Be sure not to dismiss any thoughts or take anything for granted. Whether you have chosen to embrace your uniqueness up until this point or not, now is the time! Consider all of the positive feedback you can remember.

What could you do for hours and lose track of time? This is the point where you want to get very specific. What are you passionate about? What seems to make time stop when you are doing that activity? Really get in-tune with your thoughts and feelings here. What things do you want to regularly incorporate for the rest of your life?

How can you take that talent to the next level? Reaching your full potential can depend on what your goal is. This is why working with a life coach to get clear on your vision and plans can be completely transformative. Would regular practice be enough to take your skills to the next level? Or do you need to learn more about your craft? How can using your talents help you make money or create lasting change?

If you’ve ever wondered about what it takes to reach excellence, brainstorming about your natural talents is a great place to start. Once you are clear on your vision and what you want to achieve, utilizing your talents is paramount in creating success. If you would like to discuss maximizing your time and talents, find a coach to help you!
