Know yourself for success
Top performers are self-reliant. They are willing to analyze their work, reactions and attitudes and ask, “what can I do differently to bring greater success?”
You can begin this process by working to be more cognizant of who you are and where you are now. Think about your ethics and integrity, about what makes you tick. Your values, life purpose, motivators, skills and attitudes are clues to knowing your strengths and what kind of fit you will have with a particular function or work environment. Out-of-date beliefs will certainly hold you back. Create the self-reliance to readily take life-long responsibility for your career satisfaction by examining who you are now… and mapping a path to who you want to be.
You will more easily define opportunities to forge your career path if you keep up with changing technology and how businesses stay competitive in a global marketplace. Read local, national and international business news to keep up-to-date with events and trends which may affect you and your career. Think about finding a career or life coach who can help you model calming and focusing behaviors, and also assist you in identifying and moving effectively toward your objectives. Focus on working from your strengths, looking for development and challenge opportunities that leverage those strengths. What can you do today, this week, this year to move toward your goals?
It’s also important to build relationships with those around you -- a strong network is both vertical and horizontal and can offer you valuable support and advice. Make connections – by giving and providing to your networks, you foster a spirit of giving. Take your failures in stride – and learn from them. Successful people aren’t necessary perfect, they take risks and learn as they continually redefine success.
Thank about daily and weekly regimens that can keep you physically, mentally and emotionally at the top of your game: your health, lifestyle choices, food and exercise choices, rest, life events, and how you relieve stress. Make wise choices: a healthy lifestyle, sound eating habits, a structured exercise program and practiced stress relief. You need to cultivate an abundance of energy and resilience so that you can navigate through the rapids of business reality and life.
There’s nothing more satisfying than doing work you love, and you can get there by knowing yourself and staying true to your direction. Plan and prepare, and you’ll be ready to act when the opportunity arises to move forward in the direction of your dreams.
“Today, we cannot predict where we are going or how our lives will unfold, but we can understand who we are, what we believe and what we stand for. Your values become bedrock in a storm of uncertainty and change.”
Creativity is the ability to think and act “out of the box”. To be creative is to discover new and innovative ways of thinking and doing things. It’s playing with ideas. It’s also visualizing the possibilities, planning ahead and working towards your goals.

There’s a philosophy in acting that says you can achieve your objective in a scene by taking action that moves you toward that goal... but when your first action loses its voracity, you must chose a new action to keep moving forward. Flexibility means the ability to change as needed. Most likely the changes won’t be easy, but you’ll be able to guide your future and make sure that it’s a positive one. As a coach, I help you define where you are, where you want to be and encourage you to take action to get there. -JM
If you have thought about coaching, but just aren’t sure how to begin, call or e-mail me, I’ll introduce you to coaching and you can “try it on” with no commitment, only learning! – JM
