SECRET REVEALED IN THE COACHING PROCESS
Determining where you are now may not seem like a secret being revealed, but this is where coaches begin the process in helping their clients achieve success. Like that of a GPS mapping system you must first know where you are, so you can plot a course to where you want to go.
Your coach will help you to identify your strengths and the areas of improvement that will then allow you to set accurate goals. Doing so is an invaluable step in maximizing your efforts in making your dreams come true.
ERIC MILLER- COACH SHARES 3 IDEAS TO HELP YOU DETERMINE WHERE YOU ARE NOW
1. QUIET TIME WITH YOUR THOUGHTS
As you mature in your life cycle things that were once important to you may no longer have priority or remain relevant. If you are like most people, you may not know where to start in doing this evaluation and reflection. Take some quiet time with your thoughts and think about what made you happy in the past.
For some meditation and reflection are one in the same. You can incorporate meditation into your thought process while evaluating where you are now. As a life coach, I recommend that you separate the two for optimal results. Quietly meditating on the happiness and even hardships that later led to happiness will prove to be very useful in goal setting.
3. WRITE IT DOWN
Make a list of events that brought you joy. Make another list of experiences that were challenging to go through, but later proved to be life altering game changers in defining who you are now.

No one can always do what is best in difficult times. We are all human and vulnerable at times. A life coach is trained to point out deeper strengths that you might not realize are strengths.
Now write down 5 positive character traits that you like about yourself. You might even list the ones that others have expressed about you. Continue with writing 5 things that brought you happiness and bliss. You will soon be able to connect the dots and see themes emerge on what needs to happen to make your dreams come true.
Identifying where you are now in your life cycle is very important in determining where you want to go in the next phase of life.
