Tip 3 for you this week focuses on the power of reflecting and capturing how you will think/feel and act when you move towards your goal and the change(s) you want to make.
When working on the Creation stage (I referred to last week) with my clients, I encourage them to reflect, consider and capture how they want to think/feel/act versus how they currently think/feel and act. We capture this in the present tense to help them see and visualise the words that they want 'be'. We also focus on 'towards language' as opposed to 'away from language'.
For example.... 'I am confident', 'I am assertive' as opposed to 'I want to be less unsure', 'I want to not back down so easily'. It makes a big difference when you see what you can be and are capable of - when you start to repeat it to yourself you hear it too. You start to believe it and hence act/think/feel more positively.
Here is your second tip focused on the Arch inspire 5C's model, tips designed to help you to take some time to invest in you and those around you.
****Creation-creating the overall vision of where you want to be and what you want to achieve.
When working with my clients, we initially create a one-page 'Creation' document, capturing what they want to achieve, the impact this will have on them professionally and personally, what success will look like, who in their lives can help them achieve what they want and how they currently think/feel/act versus how they will think/feel/act as they move closer to and begin to achieve their goals. Spending time on this really helps them hone in on what they want and why and the impact it will have on their lives. This elevates the importance for them of achieving what they want and drives them to want to take action.

An old colleague and friend sent me this exact message in the image above this week. Pretty timely given I'd already decided to share the importance of taking time to understand your 'values'.
Values are fundamental beliefs that guide and drive our attitudes, actions and behaviours. Considering and spending time to realise/remind yourself of your values is a core part of understanding WHY you want to achieve a goal, make a change or do something new.
My top 3 values are-integrity-honesty-reliability.
When I live by these I feel content, happy and authentic. When someone challenges these it can feel very wrong!
Over the coming weeks and months, I am going to be sharing a top weekly tip with a simple 'Call to Action' aligned to the Arch inspire 5C's model I use with my clients. Look out for the first tip next week focused on 'Creation' - creating what you want, when and why for yourself professionally and personally.
Well, I am 16 days into to my 17 week training plan and things are going rather well! One of my key goals in my 40th year was to run a marathon so I am doing one for a super charity. Any support would be so gratefully appreciated as I pound the roads for the next 3.5 months! I am running the marathon in memory of my dear Nanny who passed away from dementia at the amazing age of 95.
