Here are 3 steps to move from Low to High in your life:
- GOALS – without goals I find it so difficult to move ahead. Without goals, I realize that my life does not have direction. Or purpose. And I can very quickly get demotivated. And down. And energy-drained. So what do you enjoy doing, which you can “monetize”? How can you put that down as Long-term, Mid-term, and Short-term goals? How can you get some help in this area? Friends, relatives, a coach? The coaching scene in Malaysia is new. And coaching awareness too. However, organizations like the International Association of Coaching ( https://certifiedcoach.org/ ) provide an affordable entry into the field. Couple that with support from the KL Chapter ( https://www.facebook.com/IACMalaysia), and you may have found some bit of assistance. As you work with a coach who will be reasonably priced to walk with you, as you discover your passion in life. Which can then be monetized as you work through your goals.
- GET GOING – this 2nd step from Low to High is saying, “just do it!” Many times, too much thinking causes “analysis paralysis”. This could be a “defense mechanism” coming in under the radar. We struggle with our perceived effectiveness, so we rather think a lot, than act. Our beings cry out for BALANCE. Or Equilibrium. The early Psychology pioneers like Jung and Adler spoke and taught a lot on this topic of Balance/Equilibrium. Thinking must be balanced with DOING. Action and Thinking will get us going. And when our Emotions come alongside, we have an unbeatable TRIO helping us move towards our goals.
- REFLECT & REVIEW – this is our “cybernetic” mechanism kicking in. Cybernetics is all about self-correcting systems. Someone said that “feedback is the food of champions“. I think that is so cool. With feedback, we can adjust our direction, speed, and stops. There is definitely a time to retreat on occasion. Take a breather. Rest. Like I’m doing right now as I write this post. This gives me psychological space, even some mental space to think about how I’m doing. Of course, I have found it very helpful to do this time of reflection and review with a good friend, Jessie, my wife, and of course, a fellow IAC coach. This really depends on what works for you. Maybe a coach can help. Maybe not (especially if you get a coach with all the knowledge in the world – at least that’s what they think!).
