Make The Most Of Yourself: Coach Yourself In Writing
There's nothing you can't accomplish putting words on paper (or screen). Coaching yourself is a powerful practice wherein you examine your thoughts, ask yourself important questions, and make transformation happen.
Here's what I take for granted about you if you're reading this:
(1) You want to transform your life; your growth turns you on.
(2) You have some familiarity with coaching, whether you currently work with a coach 1-on-1, have in the past or never actually hired a coach.
(3) You can use Word (or some other app) or pen and paper.
I'd like to make some other guesses about you based on who I'm calling in to join my tribe, but let's just stick with these three assumptions.
So, you want to experience growth in any area of your life and you want to speed that growth. An amazing way to do this is to coach yourself.
It's quite simple, really.
I do this process in my physical journal with my favorite pen, or by typing it out. (Right now one of my favorite tools is found at writer.bighugelabs.com; it's an interface where you can determine the background and text color and even turn on typewriter sounds.)
Sometimes I have a specific goal in mind for my "coaching session." Other times, it starts with me trying to figure out what I'm meant to write about today (since I don't want to pay the 'pay the piper' the consequences of not creating).
From there, I ask myself lots of questions. Usually my goal is to figure out either why I'm NOT taking action or why I'm taking the action I am... From there, I figure out HOW to take action to get into flow & alignment.
Basically, that's it! To illustrate, here is a 'coaching session' I had with my keyboard earlier...

What do I have to say? What? What WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT?????
I AM HERE TO CREATE, HERE TO WRITE,
i NEED TO BE CREATING. WRITING.
I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.
THERE IT IS... BENEATH THE SURFACE
WHY IS IT SO EASY FOR SOME PEOPLE?
WHY HAVEN'T I JUST FUCKING ALLOWED IN EVERYTHING I DESIRE?
THAT'S THE THING, ISN'T IT?
THE... I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO LET THIS BE EASY... FUCKING THING.
WHO'S GOING TO STOP ME? WHAT'S GOING TO STOP ME? NOTHING. THAT'S THE KEY ATTITUDE.
SO HOW TO I MAKE THAT HABIT?
HOW DO I INTEGRATE THAT IDEA? ASSIMILATE IT?
Refer to Napoleon Hill's writing on suggestion?
So.... What if I just let it all be easy? What if I let go of all my blocks? What if I was in ALIGNMENT?
Alignment.... I journaled about alignment and it seems as though life would be much different if I were in alignment. I'd be having way more sales conversations.... like, selling all day everyday. I actually WANT to sell all day every single day. Yes, that's what is feeling most delicious to me right now.
So what does that look like?
Adding the P.S. to each post I publish?
Putting out content specifically about my offers
Posting link to get people to sign up for a discovery call
Inviting people to private message me
Private messaging others
First, I need clarity on what my clients will get from my program, right?
Or haven't I already done the work of clarifying all that?
Do I need to read it over and over until it sticks?
That's what I need to do... Integrate it so I OWN it, that transformational power my work will create. I can also journal about it more creatively.
Here's what I commit to doing daily:
* Speed Dial the Universe journal pages
* Journal to call in soulmate clients
* Write a blog post
* Publish blog post to blog & Facebook Group
* Post to Facebook profile
* Post to Facebook Page
* Post to Twitter
* Post to Snapchat, Instagram Stories, and Facebook Stories
* Go Live on Facebook Page
* Post about my current offering
* Message people privately
* Post to Pinterest
Wow, that feels like a long list. Can I do most of that in less than 2 hours? Yes. So why get overwhelmed? Make it part of my day. I should be sharing my life all day.
Work week vlog created with Snapchats/Instagram Live videos? Would that be cool? I kinda like the idea....
How do fan accounts operate on social? They repost content from the stars they're honoring. What would it feel like to have fans so passionate about me they create fan accounts? Wow. I kinda can't imagine that. Does Gwen Stefani ever look at those accounts? Others?
Are those things I listed the things that the next-level version of Rosella would be doing with her days? YES. That's the quick answer! Like, gut answer.
