Most of you probably know if you've been around that Stacie is a high performance coach. As a high performance coach, you're really in the science of everything - trying to find out why people operate this way, how to ask better questions, etc.
Some of us when we set goals will set goals like "I want to sell x amount of homes", or "I want to lose this amount of weight". It's hard for us to follow through with these goals because we don't really take into account what we have to do to get there or what life will be like when we do.
"Be more intentional about who you want to become. Have vision beyond your current circumstances. Imagine your best future self, and start acting like that person today." - Brendon Burchard
You know in life, when you have to make a pretty big decision? What school to put your kids in, where should you move, etc. Most of the time, we make a pros and cons list. We ask friends. If they agree with us, we like them.
When you make those decisions, you think it's the center of your world, and that it's going to affect everything. Sometimes, we need to take a step back and see that the big issue might not be related to the big decisions. How did you show up in your marriage before this decision? How much time did you spend with your family/kids?
Sometimes we feel like we are in a cloud. We're educated, we're doing our best, but we're still in a fog. You start going through the motions - when things aren't thrilling anymore, when your relationships aren't that great, you need clarity.
Clarity is like energy. It takes a lot of effort. When we think about our goals, think about this - if your goal is to sell 50 homes next year to make $200,000 to have an awesome life with your family, that's what will feel comfortable.
For most of us, that sounds like a reasonable goal. It's specific, it's time based, it's achievable, it has a 'why' behind it.
What happens is we get busy with everyday life. The farther we get from our initial ideas, the less clarity we have.
There are 4 ways in a goal that you can create more clarity for yourself.
Your Best Self - When we think about self, we envision ourselves in the future. What would they do differently? How would they leave their family in the mornings, and arrive back in the evenings? We all get comfortable and complacent. Soon, we aren't satisfied at all.
Social Interactions - you have to have high social awareness and situational intelligence. Are you setting intentions for how you want to be? Who you want to be? How you affect others? If you don't manage your transitions during the day, you will be stuck with the aftermath.
Skills Development - sometimes we want something to change, but we don't do anything to change our approach. If you don't change your approach, you're never going to reach your goal. You have to commit to it. Whatever it might be, clarity comes from developing the skill that will get you to the goal.
