Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction

Emily is Mars Venus Life and Business Coach, and a number one Amazon bestselling author. She runs a small coaching business in the UK.

What I want to do today, is help you coach yourself to creating a life you absolutely love with these four easy steps.

Step 1

Schedule a time where you will not be disturbed, at least 1 hour. Journal a minimum of three statements, and no more than twenty, about where you dream to be in your career or life.

Next, rate yourself on a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high) for each statement. Don’t get too worried about perfecting your marking.

If you need guidance through this personal development process, I have created an affordable executive coaching guide for you. The career audit is available to buy on Etsy today.

Step 2

Reflect and journal why you scored yourself for each statement. Dig deep and ask yourself some tough questions.

If you get stuck. You can use the three why’s method. This method is where you keep asking yourself why until you have exhausted all possibilities.

Also, it is worth reflecting on whether your scoring true. Often fears can lead us down a path of negativity. Fear can sometimes be false evidence appearing real. I say sometimes, because sometimes fears are genuine.

Step 3

Set yourself some career or life goals. Make them small, large or wildly impossible. Stretch yourself.

Again, if you get stuck, imagine what your last day on earth would look like, and what you would have loved to have achieved.

Remember: What you focus on you get more of, including what you don’t want.

Step 4

Break down your bigger goals into small and achievable ones. Track your goals weekly. Then audit where you are at least once a month, marking yourself on a scale of 1–10 where you think you are now.

It is okay to pivot your goals — if a goal is not working for you, or the overall statement does not apply anymore.
