Hi Team..

Happy Friday... I am back in NY for a few days for a book event tomorrow at Barnes and Noble.. 

Pretty exciting as I know many of my family and friends will be there to hear me speak for the first time!

But, before we wrap up this week and I go into full Coach, Speaker, Author Mode tomorrow, I wanted to share this lesson....

It is based on the question:

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO BREAKTHROUGH?

Yup.

Whether you are stuck in a career that is zapping you, or, leading a team that is not responding, or, working to parent your kids like a Champion parent....

You gotta Break-OUT before you can Break-Through...

What do I mean?

For many that I Coach, I see a pattern....

They do the same thing, or a variation of the same thing, yet, expect the results to change...

Instead of changing their language, they just modify it... or, tweak it slightly...but not enough....

In the end, they are really telling themselves the same thing... thinking the same way, and ultimately end up doing the same things that led them to the result they don't want...

Can you relate?

How about the way you approach your diet? How many times has that gone down the tubes?

Or, that new workout you want to do or try for the entire month or 90-days? Yup. Often the same results.

Maybe, you want to show up differently as a Leader at work... and after a few days, you are back to your old self...

You see, if we want to BREAK-THROUGH, We must BREAK-OUT of our old way of thinking, being, behaving, and acting....

That is the only way...

You must STEP INTO this new way of being... so you can step into the new result...

For many, this only happens after a major event shakes them up..

Examples Below:

Heart-Attack = Better Diet, More Exercise, Less Obsession with WORK...

Losing a Job = Take Leadership Classes, Start The Business They Have Been Thinking About for Years...

Divorce = Put their family first, Make time with kids more quality time- not just being in the same room, Modification of Priorities, Begin Exercising to Get in Great Shape as they go Back on the Market

No Promotion= Finally go after the job they really want and the salary they know they deserve...

LOSS= Begin to tell Family they Love Them, Make More Personal Time Available to Spend with Those They Love

Business Failure = Restructuring to Focus More on Profit than Growth and Reinvestment, Focus over High Diversification

You see, when one of the above, or a combo of the above happens to us, well, it is amazing how our butt gets in gear...

What is really happening though?

Well, we are BREAKING OUT of our old way of being, acting, thinking, feeling... and moving into BREAK-THROUGH as a result of our new way of being, acting, thinking, feeling....

We are Breaking-Through as a result of the new person, habits, and actions we are stepping into...

Got it?

This can totally happen without the above going down...

But what has to happen is:

  • You must start getting in touch with your own reality...
  • You must put your phone down so you can turn your instincts on again...
  • You must realize you can make immediate change on your life without going to a course, seminar, or baptism...IT CAN HAPPEN NOW.
  • You must be disciplined in thoughts and actions...
  • You must be ALL-IN..

Got it?

And that is what makes it tough and why most won't do it....

So, as you head into the weekend... make time for yourself....

Think about WHO you want to be...

Who you are going to step into becoming...

Then, take the actions necessary to be that person...

Watch your results...

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
