How Determined Are You Really?

Coaches assist clients in identifying personal and professional goals. Once goals are identified, coaches help clients realize their level of determination in accomplishing them.

Here is where the “rubber meets the road!”

Clients must decide what they are willing to say “no” to in order to say “yes” to moving toward their goals. What are they willing to sacrifice?

My coach helped me in clarifying how determined I was in pursuing a Masters in Business Administration, while working full-time and being a mother and wife. Through thought-provoking questions, I realized how important it was to earn a MBA. It was truly a personal goal. My coach helped me realize the impact of accomplishing this goal as well as not pursuing a MBA. I accepted the sacrifices I needed to make (working late hours, being overly tired, weekends dedicated to school work, etc.) in order to increase my self-satisfaction. I was determined! As a result, I have accomplished my goal!

A coach will help clients clarify goals, identify sacrifices, and reveal their level of determination in achieving goals. Clients will become aware of what is truly fueling their determination, such as self-satisfaction, money, status, team performance, etc.

As a coach, my questions to you are “How determined are you in achieving your goals and what sacrifices are you willing to make?”

  1. You are right… having a coach is a great help in determining a self motivational path. I would like to think instead of determining what to say no to, identifying with what you can do. A positive outlook starts with that. When you focus is on what you can do, what you can’t becomes the lower priority, at least until you have accomplished the can do’s.

  2. It is amazing of how many people “want” things that they are not willing to work for. Nothing comes easy: and to your point, you have to be willing to see obstacles as opportunities to invest in your problem solving techniques. Can’t believe how many of my clients ‘give up’ at the first sign of complication. I like to surround myself with people like you!
