The most important relationship in obtaining anything you want in life: success, relationships, financial independence, you fill in the blank _______, is the relationship with yourself. YOU! Yes you.
And we often ignore that fact and fail to realize what makes me. ME.
Discover the Equation That Can Unleash the Greatness Within
You = ∑ people + ∑ experiences + ∑ inputs + ∑ habits + ∑ interests/talents
The equation is from a blog that was started by a person I coached and after one session, she was on fire to follow through on her goal to make her first mobile app; which was not her primary skill and had never done one. She just had the interest.
Here is what she had to say just one day after her very first coaching session:
“I’m no longer just breathing… I’m alive coz I’m doing things that I love, exciting times for me… Sometimes I found myself stuck up because of certain obstacles on my way. I’ve seen coaching as helping me look into the situation in a different perspective through the guidance of a coach. With his insights and wisdom I was able to realize that what seemed to be out of my control factors is actually within my control.” J.M. (Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines)
After coaching her, she was moved to launch an inspirational blog.
She came to the realization that we are the sum of the people, experiences, inputs, habits, interests, and talents that we choose or that cross our path.
So one of the people she chose to add to her equation was a life coach.
The people we spend time with are a crucial element in the equation of you or the equation of success.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.“ – Jim Rohn (the law of average)
Who do you spend your time with?
Want greater success, hang around people that are successful. Want to improve your health, hang around healthy people…
“Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” – Jim Rohn
And one of the variables of who you become is the people we associate with. It’s wiring in out brain. We have mirror neurons that mirror the behavior of others.
If life and or my business is not going the way I planned, it’s mostly my fault.
Yes, there will be winds of change and uncertainties, or random events. However, I am making the choices (consciously or unconsciously) for each and every variable in the equation; whether I admit it or not.
Are you choosing the elements in your life that maximize the equation of you, or are you leaving them to chance and the winds of life?
