Nine Life Coaching Tips to Get Back in Your Game

Nine Life Coaching Tips to Get Back in Your Game

Are you stressed when things don’t work out the way you want them? Bad things happened and fret crept into your life, sucking all of your energy like a leech. You ended up being uninspired, bored and sad. You don’t know how to improve and get back to your life. Here, in this article, I’ve compiled some life coaching tips to ignite your life once again.

1. Make A List of Everything You Love

Take a paper and a pen and start making a list of everything you love. It might include people, concepts and all other things that interest you. Write down in detail. Don’t hesitate!

2. Do Something Different

Many times, we feel like what we are doing never helps us in a positive way. So, try to take different actions as it will boost up your energy. For instance, if you feel like hanging out at home, you should get out and do something extraordinary. At times, doing something that you have never done before will ignite and excite you in a remarkable way.

3. Try Something Odd and Fun

Even if you’re not feeling it right now, you have to take a step and do something fun and unique. You can try something extraordinary, something that you have never tried, such as go for a trapeze class or attend a lecture on a unique subject.

4. Exhale Out Your Dreams

Talking about your goals might also be helpful in getting your life back on track. Just discuss with family or friends what you would like to do one day. If you don’t have someone you can converse with, take a pen and paper and write it all down.

5. Laugh More, Worry Less

Smile and laugh even when you have to fake it. It will make you feel better from inside. I don’t encourage fake smiles and laughs, but when it comes to feeling uninspired and flat, you can watch a comedy play or movie or just give a smile to a stranger. It works out for sure!

6. Stay focused on what you want to feel

It’s critical that you try to stop focusing on what you’re feeling, and instead focus on what you want to feel. You probably heard about Buddha’s quote ”Suffering is to argue with reality.” When you feel bored, uninspired or flat, try to think about things that will make you feel passionate and excited. If you focus on how you are feeling down, you will feel even worse.

7. Never over-think a particular situation

Another good advice is to not avoid things that need to be done, such as housework or paperwork. Never think about the situation that disturbs you, as this will end in long worries like why it isn’t working, where would I go, etc. Don’t over-think the things that need to be happening, just do them.

8. Accept what it is

Now that’s the important thing to do. Just accept “What it is.” If you’re not in a right zone, then don’t worry. Things will work out soon; you just need to accept your current situation, and it’ll make a hell of a difference.

9. Test yourself for depression

I think it’s also important to talk about this topic as well. Plan an appointment with a doctor and check yourself for depression. The common symptoms of depression are a loss of energy, loss of interest and flatness in emotions. Stop drinking alcohol, as some people get caught up in bad habits due to depression. The sooner you start getting the treatment, the easier it will be to get back to life. So, never hesitate to consult a doctor right away as it’s better to be safe than sorry. Happy reading!

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

A new year beautifully symbolizes a new chapter opening in the book that is your life. But while so many people like you aspire to achieve ambitious goals, only 12% of you will ever experience the taste of victory. Sound bad? It is. 156 million people (that’s 156,000,000) will probably give up on their resolution before you can say “confetti.” Keep on reading to learn why New Year’s resolutions fail (and how to succeed).

Note: Since losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution, I chose to focus on weight loss (but these principles can be applied to just about any goal you think of — make it work for you!).

1. You’re treating a marathon like a sprint.

Slow and steady habit change might not be sexy, but it’s a lot more effective than the “I want it ALL and I want it NOW!” mentality. Small changes stick better because they aren’t intimidating (if you do it right, you’ll barely even notice them!).

If you have a lot of bad habits today, the last thing you need to do is remodel your entire life overnight. Want to lose weight? Stop it with the crash diets and excessive exercise plans. Instead of following a super restrictive plan that bans anything fun, add one positive habit per week. For example, you could start with something easy like drinking more water during your first week. The following week, you could move on to eating 3 fruits and veggies every day. And the next week, you could aim to eat a fistful of protein at every meal.

2. You put the cart before the horse.

“Supplementing” a crappy diet is stupid, so don’t even think about it. Focus on the actions that produce the overwhelming amount of results. If it’s not important, don’t worry about it.

3. You don’t believe in yourself.

A failure to act can cripple you before you leave the starting line. If you’ve tried (and failed) to set a New Year’s resolution (or several) in the past, I know it might be hard to believe in yourself. Doubt is a nagging voice in your head that will resist personal growth with every ounce of its being. The only way to defeat doubt is to believe in yourself. Who cares if you’ve failed a time or two? This year, you can try again (but better this time).

4. Too much thinking, not enough doing.

The best self-help book in the world can’t save you if you fail to take action. Yes, seek inspiration and knowledge, but only as much as you can realistically apply to your life. If you can put just one thing you learn from every book or article you read into practice, you’ll be on the fast track to success.

5. You’re in too much of a hurry.

If it was quick-and-easy, everybody would do it, so it’s in your best interest to exercise your patience muscles.

6. You don’t enjoy the process.

Is it any wonder people struggle with their weight when they see eating as a chore and exercise as a dreadful bore? The best fitness plan is one that causes the least interruption to your daily life. The goal isn’t to add stress to your life, but rather to remove it.

The best of us couldn’t bring ourselves to do something we hate consistently, so make getting in shape fun, however you’ve gotta do it. That could be participating in a sport you love, exercising with a good friend or two, joining a group exercise class so you can meet new people, or giving yourself one “free day” per week where you forget about your training plan and exercise in any way you please.

7. You’re trying too hard.

Unless you want to experience some nasty cravings, don’t deprive your body of pleasure. The more you tell yourself you can’t have a food, the more you’re going to want it. As long as you’re making positive choices 80-90% of the time, don’t sweat the occasional indulgence.

8. You don’t track your progress.

Keeping a written record of your training progress will help you sustain an “I CAN do this” attitude. All you need is a notebook and a pen. For every workout, record what exercises you do, the number of repetitions performed, and how much weight you used if applicable. Your goal? Do better next time. Improving your best performance on a regular basis offers positive feedback that will encourage you to keep going.

9. You have no social support.

It can be hard to stay motivated when you feel alone. The good news? You’re not alone: far from it. Post a status on Facebook asking your friends if anybody would like to be your gym or accountability buddy. If you know a co-worker who shares your goal, try to coordinate your lunch time and go out together so you’ll be more likely to make positive decisions. Join a support group of like-minded folks on Facebook, LinkedIn, or elsewhere on the internet. Strength in numbers is powerful, so use it to your advantage.

10. You know your what but not your why.

The biggest reason why most New Year’s resolutions fail: you know what you want but you not why you want it.

Yes: you want to get fit, lose weight, or be healthy… but why is your goal important to you? For example:

Do you want to be fit so you can be a positive example that your children can admire and look up to?

Do you want to lose fat so you’ll feel more confident and sexy in your body than ever before?

Do you want to be healthy so you’ll have increased clarity, energy, and focus that would carry over into every single aspect of your life?

Whether you’re getting in shape because you want to live longer, be a good example, boost your energy, feel confident, have an excuse to buy hot new clothes, or increase your likelihood of getting laid (hey, I’m not here to judge) is up to you. Forget about any preconceived notions and be true to yourself.

  • The more specific you can make your goal,
  • The more vivid it will be in your imagination,
  • The more encouraged you’ll be,
  • The more likely it is you will succeed (because yes, you CAN do this!).

I hope this guide to why New Year’s resolutions fail helps you achieve your goals this year. If you found this helpful, please pass it along to some friends so they can be successful just like you. What do you hope to accomplish next year?
