5 Min Life Coach: What's holding you back?
October 05, 2014
YOU are God's masterpiece!

"We are God’s masterpiece...He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10

"You were created for such a time as this and you are much more powerful than you believe as yet, but your eyes are opening and you are overcoming your fear and doubt and learning to walk in the ways of your Father. You are obeying Him even though you fear what He asks you to do and He is SO proud of you!

With every step you take, God declares to the heavens, "Look at her/him, they look just like ME!" and He is not surprised - He always believed in you. He's never lost faith in you. He knew you would become His bright and beautiful church He saw you to be in the beginning! You are shining and He is delighted by you!” Victoria Boyson


Do you know what is getting in the way of you doing what God has put on your heart to do?

  • Is it time management?
  • Is it procrastination?
  • Is it not having a blueprint, not knowing exactly what to do next?
  • Is it getting lost in your email inbox, or on Facebook each day?
  • Is it the distractions in your every day life?
  • Is it not knowing what you really want?

Here are possible solutions for those issues:

Time management?

It's not about doing MORE! If you're managing to do the important things but you still get lost in the distractions...

The answer is to have clear goals, each and every day waking up, KNOWING what the NEXT THING is that you need to do to accomplish your goals.

Too many distractions?

You need a very clear goal, AND you need a big enough why!

If you are driving and one of the children wants to stop to pick flowers, or take photos every 5 minutes, do you stop? Not if you really want to get there.

But if you didn't have a clear goal, if you didn't have a purpose you could pick flowers and take photos all day long.

Email and Facebook and Pinterest are like the flowers.

If you don't have a goal, if you don't keep track of time, you can get lost in them.

But if you wake up with clear goals each day, or you don't start working until you have a plan, like I do, then distractions aren't as distracting - I just work on what's next on my agenda each day. If I spend time on Facebook or answering emails and texts I do it in 10 minute bursts once I've accomplished what i set out to do.

Not knowing what you really want?

This is huge. And the truth is that you are wasting a lot of time if you don't know what you want, or you're not clear about your purpose in life.

Please STOP going about doing ANYTHING until you figure out EXACTLY what you want to achieve and what the Lord has for you to do.

Not having a blueprint, not knowing exactly what to do next?

This is the most common reason that people are have for not achieving their goals.

Is that you?

When you know what you're doing, when you have a blueprint and follow it - it solves all the above problems.

You aren't distracted by Facebook because you have something better to do.

You know what to do each day when you wake up in the morning.

You NEED to get clear about what you want, and why you want it, and then partner with God to create a blueprint for your life if you want to overcome all these issues and live life fulfilled.

If you want to wake up each day KNOWING what your next step is - I encourage you to seriously consider joining me for the next life coach training class in October so that you can get crystal clear about these things, create a blueprint, and transform your own life while training to help other people to have breakthroughs.

If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions then you might want to seriously consider getting equipped to be a more effective people helper.

  • Do people seek you out for help and counsel?
  • When they need a listening ear do they turn to you?
  • Would you liked to be equipped to help them more effectively?

Life coach training isn't just for people who want to set up business as a life coach. If you are a minister, or small group leader, or if you teach, or work with people pastorally, this training will equip you to help the people in your care to change and grow so that they can become who God intended them to be and take hold of what He has for them.

If you start training now you can be a qualified life coach by the end of the year. All my students are amazed at the quality of training they get for such an affordable price, and the bonus is that as you train to help others you find your life is transformed too.
