Figure out how you are serving your life purpose in order to serve your clients. Ask yourself, "What's in it for me?"
Do you dread the moment when someone asks you, “What is your purpose in life?” or “What is the purpose of your business?”
Do you have a smooth response that flows like a gentle stream? Or do you stammer with ums and ahs and feel uncomfortable?
Create a balanced purpose statement by answering the following questions over a 15-minute break or between calls. You’ll create your own amazing moment as you start to realize your purpose!
QUESTION #1. WHY DID YOU BECOME A COACH?
Think back and reflect on who you were and what you were feeling before you sought help and achieved your transformation.
QUESTION #2. WHAT WOULD BE YOUR BEST SUCCESS SCENARIO?
As a coach you normally ask others to visualize their best scenario. Now, I'd like you to take a moment and visualize what would make all your efforts worthwhile. Think in terms of measurable, quantifiable outcomes.
QUESTION #3. EXACTLY, WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
Here is where you put #1 and #2 together and create the "what's in it for me" statement.
If you want to help others achieve the same transformation as in #1, how many would that be, and how much would it be worth to you from #2, and then add how you would feel if this could all come about.
LET YOUR PURPOSE GUIDE YOUR DECISIONS
When you are faced with a "shiny object" or "too good to pass up offer" going forward, ask yourself if that opportunity adds value to or helps you achieve your purpose. If yes, then go for it confidently. If not, then it would be best to leave it alone for this year.
Your purpose could change every year, so only focus on the current year. Start today and pursue your purpose in everything you do! You will be happier and your happy spirit will attract high-energy clients. Your family will see you in a different way and most importantly, you will end the year fulfilled.
