Matt Funk - Personal Life Coach & Growth Specialist
Have you ever caught yourself having a pity party? Have you ever felt like life just isn't fair? I found decisions can shape our destiny. Today is a new day! Choose to be a victor not a victim. It starts with the way we view ourselves. Here are a few coaching tips that have gotten myself and others results:
Don't be a victim - We can all come up with reasons why we can’t do something or why we aren't achieving our goals. Excuses remove the power to change. - Ask yourself: In this season of my life what could I eliminate? - Maybe for some of you it may be something you enjoy, but it’s not getting you any results (ie. Netflix)
Watch your language: Again, I can’t stress this enough. Words are powerful. They can lift you up or bring you down. Talk like a Victor not a Victim! Words can attract or reply others. Words can set you up or set you back. So be intentional with what you say. Speak life, not death over yourself, your situation, your opportunity or others you meet. For what you sew you shall surely reap.
Know what you want? Most people can't clearly define this. They may have an idea, however it’s a vague idea. Again, vague vision leads to vague results. What do you want for your relationships?, your marriage? your health? your finances? How much money do you want to make a year? What does an abundant life like to you?
Wake up! Stop waking up like an accident. Before you even go to bed, prep for the next day, review your goals, and ask yourself: What are 3 things that I’m looking forward to doing tomorrow? Not what you have to do, but what you get to do. If you’re like me, I have no problem waking up at 4am when it means going to the airport to travel to my favourite vacation destinations! Purpose without passion only leads to pain. That’s difference when it feels painful to get up in the morning, verses you can’t wait for morning to come. Find your passion even in the little things. If you can’t find it in little, you won’t enjoy it when you have much.
