Hi Team-

Happy Friday....

I don't know if you see this as much as I do... but every place I look today there is another "Expert" teaching you how to be successful.... 

Billboards...

Ads on social...

Before YOUTUBE videos...

Does this drive you crazy?

At times it drives me crazy....

So, I had to ask myself, "What part of all of this makes you crazy Coach?...

And, I got my answer.

The part that makes me crazy is the disingenuous marketing and salesmanship being shown here....

Alongside that, the knowing that most of these people are just really good marketers... but when it comes to the "personal development/ growth" part of their model, well, they often come up short....

Every day, I Coach people.... (many of whom have been down the suave marketing route)... but still desire, need, want more....

Helping them through their personal journey....(health, mindset, business/career navigation, relationships).....

Crossing roads they have not been able to cross (so they thought)...and helping them to UNLEASH THEIR INNER CHAMPION...

I will tell you this: THIS TAKES WORK.

And, lot's of it.

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Annual Work....

Over time, you become the person you aspire to be when you deploy the right thinking, the right tools, and have dealt with the failures that ultimately lead you to success and happiness...

That person has always been there.

But, much like sports talent, it must be developed through a working process, not a one-hit-wonder seminar or 4-week course....

Pardon today's semi-rant.. but I want you to realize there is only one person who can make your dreams come true...

YOU.

Lately, when I sign copies of my book, Habits of a Champion, I inscribe it with:

YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Why?

Because it is true. 100% true.

Am I knocking personal development training- Yes and No.

Buyer beware of the over-hyped, over-marketed, flashy stuff.

But I do think you should be engaged daily in building, growing, fine-tuning yourself, making sure you are always working in alignment with your core values, your character, and pacing towards your mission, vision, and goal. 

As you wrap up this work week....

Ask yourself this question, "What part of my game can use some work?"....

That is your starting point on your personal development journey....

If you have trouble answering that question, think about the areas of your life where you experience the most friction/ resistance.

That is probably a space where you need to start attacking....

Spend more time developing yourself and in the end, you will be happy with the end product!

Let's GO!

Your Coach, 

COACH DANA CAVALEA
