I am obsessed with breaking my personal record. What is another positive motivation to keep running?

I’m pushing myself too hard with this philosophy of breaking a record every time I run. I’ve been running 5 days a week for a couple of years. I can’t lose any more weight. I’m not going to get any faster since I’m 36 (and had a very active youth). I feel overtrained. What are some motivations to keep running, because I’m really feeling burned out at the moment?

Any tip would be appreciated. Thanks!

Well, I understand where you are coming from. This is common with a lot of runners, including myself. I love running 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, full marathons and just about any kind of road race. In my earlier and younger days, setting personal records was exhilerating for me and setting these goals to break my own records motivated me to train and train hard. I actually got my weight down to 143 pounds just from the hard training and racing. I was blessed that I didn’t have but a few injuries that sidelined me.

After realizing that the aging process was slowing me down and that my body needed more rest, I adjusted my thinking. I feel Blessed just being able to get out the door most mornings to go for a run, weather a short run or a long run. I also became more focused on half and full marathons and just being able to finish them in good condition and not competely physically and mentally drained.

Another motivation is that because of my running, I keep my blood pressure down, my cholesteral down, my heart rate down and I feel so much better. I have more energy, I am more alert and I run because I can. I can take a day or two off now without feeling guilty because I know that the rest is helping me to recover for the next run. What a wonderful feeling.

So, take it easy, get more rest and enjoy running for the sake of running and the many health benefits you get from it.

Happy Running!

Make a Living as a Coach – 3 Things Coaching School Forgot to Tell You

Have you ever wondered why such a high percentage of graduates from accredited coaching programs leave the profession in less than two years? And why so many coaches struggle to make ends meet on what they’re coaching business brings in?

The sad reality is there are three things your accredited coaching school didn’t tell you about how to thrive financially as a coach. Find out what these three things are, and what you can do about them to end the struggle and catapult your coaching profits.

Three Costly Mistakes Coaches Make

1. Charge too little.

I know, I know. When you first start out, you’re told to price your services low to attract clients. In theory, this sounds good. In practice, however, you’re doing yourself a disservice.

Here’s why: When you charge next to nothing for something, your market perceives the value of your product or service as being too low. That translates into your value as a coach being viewed as low, too. The same with giving something of value away, without asking anything in return. The likelihood of it being appreciated or used is low.

Why is that? There’s an energy of lack associated with charging too little for your services. Often potential clients who seek out the lowest priced coaching services aren’t looking for the highest return on their investment. They’re coming from a place of lack and looking for the cheapest price.

And here’s the rub. Those very same clients who congratulate themselves for shopping around and finding the lowest-paying coaching services are the same ones who will turn around and demand the most from you. They will repeatedly cancel appointments, have a thousand-and-one excuses for not completing their homework, call in-between appointments with crises, and inundate your in-box with questions.

If you are feeling desperate to fill your coaching roster that’s exactly the kind of client you will attract to you – desperate.

2. Provide only coaching services.

One of the biggest mistakes coaches make right out of coaching school is to focus exclusively on setting up the services sides of their business – their coaching packages. The problem with this is that coaching packages are typically the highest priced services in a coach’s arsenal.

So what happens if you are a new, inexperienced coach and you start promoting your coaching at the $300 – $400 per month price range? Do you think people will happily plop down their hard-earned money just for the opportunity to work with you? Of course they won’t.

People don’t trust what they don’t know. If you are an unknown entity fresh out of coaching school, you will have to create multiple price-point options for your potential clients to choose from, if you want to make a living as a coach.

What that means is that you will have to create services AND products that are lower on the price-point scale. This will give your potential clients the opportunity to try you out and get to know you through your lower-priced products and services, before they sign up for one of your higher-end coaching packages.

3. Create passive revenue income.

Yikes, what is she saying? Creating passive income is a detriment? How can she be saying that? Passive income is all the rage! You’re right, it is. However, it’s not for you, at this time. Here’s why.

When you’re just starting out as a coach, you want to create leveraged, not passive revenue income. Passive revenue means: create once; sell once.

Leverage revenue, on the other hand, means that you put in a certain amount of hours and you get a very, very, very good return on your investment over time. Leveraged money can increase the amount of money and the amount of profit you can make from your product. Leveraged revenue means: create once; repurpose multiple times.

That’s why it’s so important to create both services and products at multiple price-points that you can leverage multiple times in multiple ways.

I’m not here to bash what they tell you in coaching school. In fact I think coaching schools, especially the accredited ones, provide much needed valuable guidance, insight, and information. However, if you want to actually make a living as a coach, and not have to supplement it with outside resources, then you must look beyond what they are teaching your in coaching school. The three things you have learned in this article will give you a jump-start on making your dream a reality, and get you well on your way to building a business that provides you with the lifestyle you want.

A Business Coach Can Quickly Build Your Success & Wealth

The services provided by a business coach are quite similar to that of a sports coach, the only difference is that business coaching is undertaken for the benefit of an organization. Business coaching not only aims at improving individual performance but also concentrates on improving team performance.

Helps in unlocking hidden potential:

Just as a sports coach helps in unlocking the real potential of players, a business coach helps the employees to improve their working skills. Most successful business coaches know that every employee has the potential to perform above expectations. The only thing required is proper guidance and the confidence that he can achieve the set goal and objective. The aligning of personal and professional goals of the employees with organizational goals and objectives enables the business coach to increase productivity and maximizing profitability. This helps in the increase of profitability and success in a very short time.

Offers more than a standalone business consultant:

People often confuse business coaching with business consulting. Both are very different from each other and are undertaken for achieving different set of goals and objectives. In business consulting, the consultant offers you solutions to your queries, based on his knowledge, experience and technical qualifications. Business consulting is more like gambling in which you win some and lose some. The advice provided by the consultant may or may not work in solving your problems. In comparison, business coaching allows the employees to explore and find the solutions for themselves. It just provides the right guidance, which may not seem much help, but is very essential when it comes to unlocking the true potential of an individual. It takes a great amount of skill and patience to be able to connect with the employees, which can only be made possible with the help of a business coach. The coach provides the necessary guidance to the employee or team members. This helps them to overcome common organizational problems.

Helps employees to do a SWOT analysis:

A business coach will help your employees to identify their weaknesses and strengths. The coach will also provide guidance to enable them to overcome their weaknesses, not by any special methods or techniques, but just by motivating them to concentrate on the core areas. These areas being those in which they feel they can excel and produce the desired results. Just like a sports coach, a business coach helps to develop the right attitude and confidence, which is necessary for enhancing team spirit and reducing the reluctance to work. Employees get empowered and feel more confident to take work-related decisions, which in turn will help in improving organizational efficiency.

A business coach enables the employees to understand the aims and objectives of the company. This helps them to contribute to the overall success of the organization. Employees learn the techniques to improve interpersonal relations with their peers as well as with their subordinates, resulting in increased cooperation between associate team members. This helps in increasing organizational efficiency, necessary for increasing productivity and improving quality.

How to Cheer yourself Up?

When blues chase away every color from your life and the merest hint of smile evades you, you desperately need some “happiness tools”!  You may be wondering what are these “happiness tools”, well they are simply some do it yourself techniques to bring those bright colors and smiles back into your life!

Try using the following “happiness tools” whenever you need to cheer yourself up:

*Exercise or yoga: When you exercise “feel good chemicals” called endorphins are released in your body. Endorphins induce a feeling of euphoria and change your mood from sad and dark to happy and bright!

*Writing down your blessings- No! It’s not like one of those school punishments where you had to write a hundred times that you would never repeat a mistake again. Penning down your blessings is in fact an enjoyable exercise! When you start counting your blessings it takes your mind away from what you don’t have and focusing on what’s right in your life; changing pessimism into optimism, dread into anticipation.

*Prayer- Remember when you were a child, how comforting it was to know that your parents would take care of your problems. When you pray you become like that child again. Placing your trust and faith in the almighty can help you feel better about any situation. Moreover, every place of worship is infused with positive energy; therefore just visiting can have calming effect on the mind.

*Children- Ever noticed how your face breaks into a smile when you hear a child’s innocent laughter? Or how you can’t stop chuckling when you listen to a child’s far-fetched stories? Children can be the most entertaining companions and the greatest teachers. Your worries disappear into thin air when you become a part of a child’s wonderful world! When you see life from a child’s eyes, it suddenly seems more beautiful! With their disarming innocence children teach us how to live in the moment, how to look for a miracle in everything and most of all how to be happy. Children never fret about what they’ve lost, they may cry over a broken toy or a physical hurt for a few moments and then move on, children are unaware of the concept of ego, they therefore forgive and forget! Even if you don’t have any children, visit a park and observe little children busy in their innocent games; it will cheer you up within minutes!

*Sleep- The clichéd phrase “sleep on it” actually makes a lot of sense! Sleeping gives you a welcome break from stress. You are aware of your blue mood when you are awake, sleeping helps you forget (at least for the time being) the reason for your sorrow. Moreover, sometimes sleeping on a problem actually helps you put it in perspective.

*Take a bath-Water can cleanse not only your body but also your mind. A few drops of essential oils like lavender or sandalwood will help you wash away your stress along with your dark mood.

*Dance- Dancing your blues away is a great way to de-stress. It doesn’t matter whether you are a good dancer or not, swaying to music is extremely invigorating. It’s an exercise which involves your body, mind and soul. With all three involved in one act, stress can’t do much to distract from the pursuit of happiness.

*Visit boomeryearbook.com – Connect with old friends or simply browse through its vast library of self-help and coaching articles. In all probability you’ll find the solution to the problem that’s bogging you down and by the time you log out you will be smiling!

What have you read that inspired you to continuous personal development?

i need more in deep to how has it inspired you, we are all different and we therefore take different things from different books so I am really looking for what u have taking from this boos which helps you to improve your personality.
Some of the books are not typical self-development books – they are inspirational in other ways, they can help to see life differently – to understand ourselves and others, to value life while we are here, and to use our life positively to the fullest.

It wasn’t anything I read – it was something my father told me.
He told me “never stop learning!”
