Your Life

Your Life

As some of you may already know I have my own Professional Coaching Business, Murray People International Coachingwww.murraypeople.com. I set up the business in 2008 after a wonderful career as a Human Resource Professional and now nearly 5 years later, it is still growing strong…I love coaching.  I mainly coach Senior Executives in Global Companies but I also do private one to one Career and Life Coaching, I am fully certified as a Professional Coach.  I really love working with people and seeing them achieve their goals in life.  I deliberately make a real effort to continually develop myself everyday so that I can use my learning in my one to one sessions with my clients, I know the better that I can become, then the better I will work with them, and the better they will become and get the results they want.  Every new coaching tool I learn for clients, I also apply to myself, this helps me to personally evolve and increases my self-awareness.  So lately I have been asking myself my own questions about my life, here is the question I asked myself recently:

What do you want your life to be/look like one year from now?      

So, of course, I went to work and I looked at each area of my life and in great detail wrote down what I specifically want my life to be and look like one year from now.  I absolutely loved this process.  I looked at the following areas:

  • Health
  • Environment
  • Money
  • Career
  • Intimate Relationship
  • Fun
  • Family & Friends
  • Leisure & Activities
  • Personal Growth

Three pages later and I had a wonderful vision of where I WILL be one year from now because I believe that will happen for me, because I WILL make it happen for me.  I have a very good track record, I was thinking of goals I have set myself in the past and fully committed to and I can honestly say I have achieved every single one of them, so this gives me an abundance of self-confidence going forward.

What About YOU?

If you want to make positive changes in your life, I would totally recommend that you sit down quietly with a notepad and pen or type on your computer/iPad and answer that question for yourself:

What do YOU want YOUR life to be/look like one year from now?

What you do after that is your choice, I read my list every morning, so I can get my specific goals embedded into my heart, mind and soul and this helps me to become super focused in achieving that for myself, sometimes without even trying.  You see it is like programming my brain to focus on achieving that for myself, so my everyday choices and decisions are in support of those life goals.  I am super focused, laser focused, fully committed and fully passionate about making these goals happen for me.  I want the same for YOU, I want you to have a better life, I want you to have everything that you have ever wanted, I want the BEST for YOU, I truly and honestly do.  It’s your life, GO GET IT!!  (I think I may make that my new slogan!!)  

May every thought that you think today, be in support of a better you and a better life for you, lots of love, as always, Clarabelle.

The Extra Mile

The Extra Mile

What does it mean for you, to go that extra mile?

The work I do, it is very important to me, I love to go the extra mile and I am always thinking about how I can advance others.  Let me give you an example of how I went the extra mile this week.

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to do a half hour talk on Executive Coaching to a large Banking Organisation.  This was a marvellous opportunity for me to talk about something I am very passionate about.  I had to focus the talk from the ‘Coachee’ perspective.  So rather than me just turning up on the day and sharing a few of my own thoughts on this, I decided to “go the extra mile”.

What did I do?

I coach a lot of Directors and Seniors Leaders in Organisations so I decided to ask them what they thought i.e. “How do you get the best out of your coaching sessions?”. From the 25 people I asked, I got 20 fabulous detailed responses.  I then collated and analysed all the feedback from these clients and produced “practical application” hand out notes for the people I was going to talk to, including 50 Top Tips!!  I also approached another Coachee that I worked with in the Banking Organisation last year and asked her if I could share her coaching success story and I was delighted that she was happy for me to do this.  I then created a presentation entitled “The Coachee’s Story” based on her coaching experience and positive results.

Advancing Others

I wasn’t expected to do any of the above, I wasn’t specifically asked to do that, but I wanted to give new participants on the coaching programme the best information I could offer them.  Before I prepared any of the above, I said to myself “How can I advance these people in this short talk?”.

I did the presentation yesterday and I feel it went down very well.  I was happy that I did some special research for the talk and I feel I gave people a great start going forward. This for me was “the extra mile” stuff.

I share this with you today, because I feel if you can make a good effort at going the extra mile for people it will not only satisfy and fulfill you from within but it will also really benefit and advance others.  It also makes you a really good role model for others, they see you going the extra mile and they want to do that too.

What does going “the extra mile” mean to you?

Wishing you a wonderful day on “the extra mile”.

Love Clarabelle
