Wouldn’t you like to know your unique, personal formula(e)
Well, I suggest, for the vast majority of us, we already know
what these are, but for numerous reasons we forget! Perhaps too
often we are looking to others to come up with the answers, or
trying new fads. One of the roles of a coach is to remind clients
that they already have most of the answers to their problems and
to help them have the confidence to go along with their instincts.
So what is a success formula? It is something visual, simple and
easy to remember, that represents a truth for you. The visual element
is an equation, e.g.
Something = B + C or X + Y – Z = Something
While you can use division signs, square roots, etc., the simpler
the better. We’re not trying to be scientific, just helpful.
At their simplest level, success formulae can be just a basic
reminder. For example if for you, Being Organised + Delegating
= Less Stress, then, when you start to get stressed, the first
thing you can check is whether you are less organised or you have
stopped delegating new projects. One of my basic formulae is Insights
+ Inspiration = Great Coaching. It reminds me not only to support
clients in solving their problems, but also to inspire them to
reach even higher.
At their “highest” level, success formulae get to
the very core of our success. If you can’t come up with a
single personal success formula, I suggest perhaps having two,
one being an attitudinal one, i.e. what mindset do I have (or need
to have) to make me successful and the other an action one, i.e.
what activities must I do and be good at to succeed.
Further examples of my own are: -
My Success = Determination + Desire
A Full Practice = Networking + Taster Sessions + Raving Fans
Would reminding yourself of why you are a success, help you to
be even more successful? Why not try it.
