Hope everyone had a happy and safe summer! The weather here on the east coast of Canada was amazing….lots of time for golf and bbqing.

I have been busy with business and family weddings. My youngest son was married in June and now my second oldest son is getting married in mid September….lots of planning happening around here.

Planning, planning and more planning. That’s it isn’t it? For everything to turn out the way we want, we need to plan……….for success to happen, we need to plan.

I call it the 3 Ps….Plan, Plan and then Plan some more.

Planning for Success

I would like to share with you Life Coaching Questions that I use with my clients, starting with a favorite quote of mine.

In Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice In Wonderland, Alice asks The Cat which way she should go.

Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where.
The Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.

This question is crucial…the answer to the question is key to success. Give it thought. Write it down. Writing it down gets it out off your head and makes it more real.
Make sure the answer you give is one you want. It should be appropriate and realistic. Dream, infact dream big but make sure your goal is yours.

Write down each question or enter into a computer program. Next take time to think about your response to each. Note your answer.

Life Coaching Questions to Motivate and move to Success

  1. What do you really, really, really want?
  2. Why do you want it?
  3. What is success to you?
  4. What does it look like?
  5. How will you know when you have become successful?
  6. How will you know when you have found it?
  7. What is holding you back from getting it?
  8. Do you believe you can get it?
  9. What motivates you?
  10. What are your intelligences and talents?
  11. How can you make the greatest difference in your own life?
  12. Who do you have to Become in order to achieve what you Want to achieve?

Nobody can move you, you must take action to move yourself!
