Spiritual Life Coaching – Action

Spiritual Life Coaching – Action

If you’re anything like me you are recovering from the Christmas extravaganza and haven’t even begun to think about New Year’s Resolutions. My advice – don’t make them. Instead create an action plan with “I will…” statements. Then share those with someone who will help hold you accountable or at least check in with you and encourage you. That is one of the great things that Life Coaching can do. We need a cheerleader in our corner who can ask good questions, share insights, and help us to draw the best out of ourselves.

Here is what I mean:

I will have thirty minutes of quiet time five times a week to center myself and meditate on a Living Word for my life.

I will share my action plan with (name) so that I may make myself accountable.

I will take time each weekend to prepare healthy snacks for the week ahead.

I will review my action plan daily to keep myself on task.

When we think in terms of “will” instead of “I want to…” we commit ourselves to making something happen. We are not super human but we can often do much more than we realize.

I got a card this year from someone who reminded me of a presentation I did a few years ago. I talked about Christmas being a 365 Days a year approach to life. When we treat people like it’s the Christmas season all year long we witness to the power that can change lives and attitudes. She shared with me how that talk changed her life. Our words and actions do make a difference. So don’t make resolutions – take action. Live the Christmas Spirit all year long with things that matter.

“But someone will say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” James 2:18

Be Well…
