Here’s an exercise to start with so your clients can language their ideal outcome instead of getting bogged down into the story of what’s not working. Use this template for when you work with your clients:
Whatever it is for you, the question to ask yourself is this – what is my Ideal Average Day? The day which, if I was to live it every day, I’d never get bored and I’d never get sick and it wouldn’t hurt anyone or me.
You see, most people live two versions of themselves –
The ‘surface’ version that we take out to the world and think is as we ‘should’ be, and...
Our ‘core’ self – the true selves we are meant to and desire to be.
This exercise is designed for coaches to get the client back to their core. It takes as little as half an hour or up to four hours, it depends on you and how much you both want to put into it.
Before you do this exercise in a coaching session (or even use it for yourself), remember that every person's Ideal Average Day is a Work In Progress. The following exercise will instantly tell you whether you're living your “song”, whether you're on the right track and if not, how to course-correct.
