What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Hopefully, at the heart of the most important things you do, there is love. Love for your family and friends. Love of your work. Love of the contributions you get to make through the services or skills you provide to others and your community.
For me, it was love at first sight… so to speak. I first discovered coaching back in 2000. I fell in love with the work of coaching and went on to get trained and certified as a professional coach, changed my career and started my own company on October 17th, 2001.
Today is the 12th anniversary of my business Nectar Consulting, Inc. and I’m happy to say I still love what I do and how I get to be of service through my work as a coach.
To celebrate, I’d like to share this gift with you:
Here are 3 Keys to Success that I’ve learned over the last 12 years that have helped me to ride the wave (even through some of the most economically challenging times), and continue doing the work I love in service of you and others.
Success Tip # 1: Start With What’s Most Important To You.
Base the foundation of your work on your core values, your passions and your strengths. This is what I refer to as the “Sweet Spot” – the intersection of these three important points. This is where you’re most alive, most creative and firing on all cylinders. When you can operate from this place more often than not, work will feel less like “work” and success will find you.
Success Tip # 2: Continually Sharpen Your Saw.
Once I tapped into my passion for coaching, I realized how much I LOVE to learn! Sharpening your saw will help you stay ahead of the curve and the competition by feeding your creative juices on the latest and greatest ways you can be of service to your target audience. I’m constantly reading, and attending workshops and conferences to help me deepen my skills and gather more knowledge, tools and resources (from some really brilliant people from around the planet!), so that I can pass these insights and wisdom onto you.
Success Tip #3: Find A Really Great Coach Or Mentor.
Over these last 12 years, I’ve been truly blessed to have worked with a variety of really great coaches, mentors and teachers who have helped me to get out of my own way and to see my own blind spots, so I can correct and continue as I go. This has been invaluable.
One of them once said, “If you’re not growing, then you’re dying – which do want to choose for yourself today?” You see, EVERYDAY is a choice in how you react or respond to what life gives you. Choose something that works for you – Empowers you – to be your best as you share your gifts, talents and expertise.
