What does

extraordinary

mean to you?

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” 

George Bernard Shaw

Extraordinary is such a powerful word. Sometimes extraordinary is that idea that is so big or so unreasonable it may well be right over the horizon. Sometimes extraordinary is simply finding the space to relax with your family, or creating an extra hour of breathing space in your day.

The art of the coach or the life coach is to serve you helping you reveal the extraordinary possibilities within you and supporting you in navigating a path to those possibilities. On the journey you might encounter resistance.

RESISTANCE

I often find that the extraordinary comes when I break free from the unseen resistance that builds up – resistance to leaning-in, or making that commitment, or acting with consistency, or letting go of control. The resistance to creating the results I really want. Where do you notice resistance building up in your daily life?

ACTION

Taking consistent action is the key. You can start right now. Take a moment and reflect, then take action and write it down.

What is extraordinary for you right now?

focus 

FOCUS

If you want to create different results then you must create a different focus.

Your attention is a scarce resource.  If you focus on what you do not want you are going to get more of that. Your attention is best focused on what you really want.

And more than focus, it is consistency. Ordinary things done with extraordinary consistency can create extraordinary results.

Where is your focus? Where do you want to apply your focus? What are you prepared to give up? Where are you prepared to sacrifice your attention to get what you really want?

Take action now. What is it that you really want? Write it down.

resourcefulness

RESOURCEFULNESS

We can get lost in focusing on building up resources. Money. Assets. Products. Equipment.

We miss the most important thing. Without it our resources are wasted.

Resourcefulness.

The ability to keep going when, literally, the going gets tough.

I have had a bike for all of my adult life. The resources were there for me to become a fit and healthy cyclist. It is only in the last two years I have had the resourcefulness to get on my bike everyday when it is cold, wet and windy to build up from 2, 3, 10, 20, 45 up to 65 miles a day. Four thousand miles over the past year.

Without resourcefulness, without consistent commitment, resources are worthless. When you know what you really want. When you know what is extraordinary for you a deep well of resourcefulness will open up and become available to you.

Take action now. If you could consistently do anything, what would it be?

legacy

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

The truth is that you and I will never know what our true legacy is. Van Gogh died penniless, believing he was a failed artist and a madman.

The best that you can do, is to see what impact you can make beyond yourself. An impact on the lives of others. An impact that you might be remembered for?

A good father or mother? A good wife or husband? Perhaps a benefactor, or activist, or philanthropist?

Happiness is balancing achievement and fulfilment. It is sometimes easier to focus on achievement. But we can never get enough of what we do not really need.

What does creating an impact mean to you? What do you want your legacy to be?

peace

Imagine Peace.

Take a moment. Close your eyes and simply breathe.

Is your mind still racing? Or do you feel yourself slowing down.

What does it take for you to experience peace?

When what you feel, when what you think, when what you say and when what you do are all in alignment, then you can experience peace.

What is throwing you out of alignment right now? What are your inner voices wrestling with?

AND YOU AND I…

At extraordinary.coach you and I work in partnership to navigate your path to what is extraordinary for you.

You talk. I listen. You and I create.

Your coaching is shaped by your words, your desires, your outcomes.
