It certainly was a wild football weekend, with two games decided by late field goals, one OT game and the top two AFC seeds losing. The Patriots stunning comeback at San Diego was a field day for second-guessers.

Know your clients. The moment somebody signed up for your Coach werden programs, make time to know these people on a deeper level. Ask about their pressing issues, the reasons why they signed up, their goals in life, their coaching preferences, their preferred language, etc. Practice active listening all throughout so you can make a good, lasting impression.

STOP TRYING TO BE PERFECT & COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE: Perfection, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. You are unique for a reason and you should revel in this fact. You should also become aware of your strong points and play up to them. If you can’t think of your good points, think about the compliments you get, and when you get them, accept them and hold onto them for dear life!
Avoid comparisons at all costs. See, when we compare ourselves to other people we usually presuppose that they are better than us, which we don’t know, but which makes us feel bad. Not a great thing to do if you want to feel good! If there are things you want to improve about yourself that you can do something about it, go for it. Self-improvement is great as long as you do it for all the right reasons.
