I love the term “Trailblazer”. I’ve been using it since I’ve started to coach professionally. This is the term that I find describes my clients so well. Even if they come in not feeling the energy or like they are not blazing the trails they know in their hearts that they can. They often leave surprising themselves by how much more empowered they are with what they’ve accomplished during their coaching engagement.
For me, I get pure joy from witnessing their transformations. No lie, it really is pure joy… like seeing caterpillars transform into butterflies .
They don’t just talk it, during coaching they walk it. They commit to actions and take them and they see for themselves the shifts in their own perception, their blocks fall away, as their path becomes clear, and their steps easier to take.
It’s for this reason that I came up with this gift for all of you trailblazers and budding trailblazers. Those in the Six Months of Yes Community, those who were clients, and those who read my updates and posts for inspirational booster shots.
Wherever you are along the path of your life, I want you to know that anyone can become a trailblazer of their own life, and this means you too! So here are the steps.
If you are too close focusing on the minute details, you may be missing out on the broader perspective. Are you willing to step back a bit and take a broader view? This is your first step: gain some perspective.
Do you feel a tug from within, an innate knowing that something is missing or not quite right? If you are don’t ignore it. As you step back to take the broader view, allow yourself to connect with what it is that might be feeling off. Stay with it awhile, it may be a clue to understanding the direction that you must take your trails in, in 2019.
Now that you have more clarity on what you want to create, what intention would you like to make to yourself about this? What would achieving this mean to you? What would it feel like when you’ve done it? Use these to make your intention statement.
How would you make this more than just an exercise you did? How would you keep this alive for you? What works for me, might not be the same for you but here are some suggestions:
Break down your plan into bite size action steps. Things that you can actually do. If you skip this step you may end up procrastinating or feeling overwhelmed. Don’t despair, ask yourself, “if I need to accomplish –fill in the blank with whatever my goal or intention is–, what would have to happen before I get there?” Repeat this several times, drilling down until you get to the first actionable step. Thinking and visualizing are great, but action is what makes it real.

Be a Trailblazer!!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from my heart to yours
