I’m just going to do it.

I remember a high school wrestling match where I was losing by a few points about halfway through the match. I was having a hard time earning an escape, and my frustration was starting to build. I was playing in my head what it would be like to stop trying so hard, to take it easy, and let the match slip away. But then something clicked, and I decided to give everything I had to win the match.

I fought like a madman to get out and escape. I went into overdrive and spent energy faking, weaving, pushing, and testing my limits of stamina when I’d collapse and having nothing left. But I got the next takedown, and then I got another. And another, and as time ran out, I was up four points. Even 20 years later I still remember that exact moment when I decided that I’d win that match.

What happens when you decide that you’re going to pull it out no matter what?

Counting 3 Blessings

Perhaps the most famous intervention of positive psychology, Counting 3 Blessings, offers an elegant and simple exercise that boosts positivity and primes your mind to enjoy future goodness. The idea is to recall and write down three happy things that happened to you that day. What I love most about the exercise is when a blessing comes to mind that I otherwise wouldn’t have considered. It brings back such sweet moments and memories that otherwise would have faded.

What are three blessings you’re grateful for in 2019?

Making Giving Sustainable

One of the most robustly proven ways to build a successful practice as a life coach is the ability to give workshops to small (and sometimes not so small) groups. These workshops, however, take lots of time and energy to set up, deliver, and follow up. There’s no way around the effort needed to hustle. The real question is whether you can make the needed effort sustainable as you start to develop a sustainable client base. How can you make giving sustainable?
