In this video, Noah Hammond talks about life coaching and how you can be your own life coach with a couple understandings and a few simple tools. Life coaching is a process of having accountability and structure, and having someone to see your blind spots and to direct you in the most effective way to take action for yourself.
Here are Hammond's comments on the video and on the possibility of being your own life-coach:
Become Your Own Life Coach -- Two Simple Steps
Now, I want to let you know I fully endorse coaching. I personally have a coach and I will always have a coach in ANY area of anything that I'm trying to develop myself. Coaches are AMAZING.
Coaches rapidly accelerate your progress. But if you are in a place where you are just starting out, you are looking to start developing yourself and you want to play with self-development by being your own life coach, here is how you can do it.
It comes down to managing your actions and I broke it into two categories: the macro and the micro.
The macro, category one, is pretty simple. That's your actions. What actions are you taking on a daily basis? Do they support where you'd like your life to go or do they hinder your life?
If you simply create two columns -- support and hinder -- and document what you do on a daily basis, you will know if your macro, your actions, are SUPPORTING or DETRACTING from your goals and direction and where you would like your life to go.
The second category is the micro. This one is a little bit harder for people to bring their personal awareness to. The micro has to deal with your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and reactions. This is the INTERNAL work that needs to be done for you to see the external progress.
Now, what I want you to know is that the internal work -- the micro work -- is more important than the macro. If you do not take the time to align your energies, remove emotional blockages, or get TOTAL clarity on exactly how to move forward to create the life you would like, the actions won't matter.
You won't be taking the RIGHT actions. You won't be taking it often enough, or in the right way, or with the right awareness. The action won't matter if you don't do the internal work first.
I have some tools available to you to begin the internal work. One would be watching the series on "Mastering Your Emotions" to really get a firm grasp on how your emotions work and how you can begin to release emotional blockages.
Also, I have the Instant Achievement Blueprint, which is a step by step system for setting and achieving your goals. It takes you through aligning yourself through your sub-conscious and conscious mind, and getting yourself in alignment so that you can take the RIGHT actions.
It talks about ACCOUNTABILITY and how to create in your life a structure where you are always moving forward, and always progressing towards creating the exact life that you would like to create.
For myself, since writing the Blueprint and implementing it, I have been able to coach myself to new levels of success and abundance in ALL areas. But again, I also have my own personal team of coaches that I work with for different areas of my life. I suggest you do look for the same.
For an inexpensive, easy way to start, check out the Instant Achievement Blueprint. It's going to give you an AMAZING structure by which you could be your own life coach.
But then, for REALLY accelerating your progress in life, I would highly recommend that you go and find a coach who resonates with you, who feels like:
"Wow, I have SO much to learn from this person."
Ideally, someone who is doing the exact thing that you would like to do, and is teaching the exact thing that you would like to learn. That's what you want to look for with your coach -- that they are doing the thing that you want; that they are teaching the thing that you want; and that they resonate with you and that you feel GOOD.
Be your own life coach with the advice that we have talked about in this video! Then, go check out a real coach because coaches EXPLODE your success in all areas. I know they do for me.
