Wow! It has been a great week. When I first thought of doing this theme, it was this very last point that I was actually thinking of. The point is that we only get one life and we should be good stewards of the life that has been given to us. Have you thought of life in that way? We only get one time to do this, and we should not waste it repeating one failure after another; instead, we should learn from them.
So beginning with that idea, I came up with my five reasons and put them into this theme for the week. Every one of those things we talked about this week was leading up to the idea that we have only one life. And each thing we talked about this week makes sense in that context.
A life coach can help you to keep on track with accountability so you can live your life and do what you know you need to do. That way we don’t waste time as we are getting to those things that are really important. Like we mentioned on Monday, if a coach keeps you accountable, then you are a better steward of the life you have been given, doing more of what you want to do, and less of what you don’t want.
On Tuesday we talked about how we use life lessons to help us keep from repeating mistakes. That’s not saying that we don’t still get an education but maybe while getting that education we also learn some life lessons that you can’t pick up in class. Don’t put off doing something because you cannot afford the education process. Find a way to work through it and learn it as you go. There are so many ways we can improve our businesses or the job path we are on by doing this with real life lessons. They can help us and those who will follow behind us.
On Wednesday we talked about goals and how to keep focused on them. When you are a good steward of the life you have been given, you do not waste time on things that are not needed or wanted in your life. So many people get side-tracked in life and before you know it life is gone. A life coach can help you stay focused so you get the most out of everything you set out to do.
Yesterday we spoke about how a life coach can help you learn more about yourself. This is something I wish I had discovered earlier in my own life. When I see how we are advancing as a world with new technology, I now like how we are working to improve our education system to help our kids learn faster. But I used to think I didn’t need to learn about new technology and I resisted it for a while – until I realized it wasn’t technology I was afraid of. I feared that I wouldn’t understand it or be able to make it work. Once I finally learned not to be afraid of it, I saw what a difference it could make for me. And once I had that insight into myself, it made a huge difference in my life – and made me a better steward of the life I had.
The biggest thing about being a good steward of what we have is it lets use the talents that we have been given, not just for our sake but for the sake of our world. If you could build a better world for you and those you love, would you?
