I think we have all heard of the saying “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Unfortunately, a lot of times, people fail in achieving what they want because they do not believe in themselves enough or they do not have enough ideas on the how’s. Worst of all, they are too overwhelmed to take action.
In this article, I’m going to show you how you can achieve anything by guiding yourself through four powerful coaching questions. This method is so simple that you can use it to guide not just yourself but also your children so they, too, can achieve what they want. This includes anything from being potty trained to getting better grades in school to learning a new skill or winning in a competition. It will help you and your kids gain more confidence and clarity on how to reach your respective goals.
Now, take a few minutes to complete the set of questions below and see its power. While answering, truly immense yourself in a state wherein you can connect with your inner self.
Power Question 1: Where are you right now?
This is the situation you are currently in.
Power Question 2: Where do you want to be in one year?
This is the goal you want to reach within the next 12 months. One year is the maximum timeframe you should set for yourself in order to make the goal achievable and actionable.
Power Question 3: What resources do you currently have?
These are the things that you have right now that will help you achieve your goal.
Power Question 4: What resources are you missing?
These are the additional resources you need so you can reach your goal.
After you answer these four questions, you should have a clear picture of the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. To close that gap, all you have to do is list down three actions that you intend to take. Doing this will give you an uncomplicated but solid action plan that will propel you forward toward your goal.
To move yourself to the next level, you can go through these Powerful Questions again after you’ve reached your first year goal.
The beauty of this exercise is that it’s so simple and yet so powerful that it can be applied to kids as young as 3 years old. It will help them have a clear view of what actions they need to take to achieve what they want to achieve. This exercise will train them to flex their brains as well as build an action-taking habit for future success.
Action is the foundational key to all success, so take action now and help your children and yourself improve day after day!
I believe our kids are the key to the future of the world and, as parents, we have a lot of influence while our children are still learning and growing. We set ourselves as our kids’ role models. Consciously and unconsciously, we pass on to them what we know, what we believe, and what we value. This is why partnering with parents in teaching life lessons and soft skills to get kids prepared for the world has become my key purpose in life. I hope that through my experience in teaching communications in university and in NLP training and coaching, I’ll be able to equip you with more tangible methods so that you can be your children’s life teacher, too!
