At Confidence Coach we are all about helping you create clarity and confidence in your life. When you take a break today, go to lunch or before you go to bed tonight — ask yourself these three simple questions.

  1. What is it you DON’T want in your life?

Take out a piece of paper or notebook and write down all the things that you don’t want in your life. This might sound like a strange question, but we tolerate a lot of things, interferences, and/or distractions in our life that we don’t want. For some reason we allow these things to stay in our lives and they aren’t productive. So write down all the things you don’t want in your life right now.

  1. What are the things that you DO want in your life?

Make another list and go ahead and write these things out. Really think about what’s important and want you want. Be honest and creative.

  1. What’s in the way from what you want?  

Most of the time it’s the things you don’t want that are getting in the way of what you do want. You need to get rid of these things.

So that’s our challenge for you today. At Confidence Coach, we are are all about challenging, encouraging and holding people accountable. We want to help you eliminate the things in your life that you don’t want and also help you increase your time, energy and focus on the things you do want!

By focusing on the things that you want in life, you can experience transformation, clarity and create a better feeling about your life and your business.

That’s it for today. Ask and answer for yourself these three simple questions. We’d love to hear from you about it. If you’d like to have me actually take you through the process and coach you, please schedule a free coaching conversation on our website. We will help you get the clarity and confidence back that you want to have going forward into 2019.

There’s a coaching exercise that we call The Clarity Solution which helps you understand why and how you do what you do. It can also help you analyze why this is important to you. Because sometimes as owners, we forget the big stuff like this or don’t touch base with it. We can then start to drift one way or another and get off track. So with this process, people get refocused and it brings them back to who they really are and what they truly believe.

I was at a conference a couple of years ago and a gentleman speaking said this: “Love me or hate me; there’s no money in the middle.” A lot of business owners think they have to try to satisfy or help everybody. They are trying to be everything to everybody; that never works. It’s always a recipe for disaster. If someone is struggling with this, we use The Clarity Solution to bring them back into focus and ask them what it is that they really believe; what is it that they’re really doing; and who they’re really serving, both in their customers and employees.

CLARITY QUESTIONS – Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What do you stand for? What do you stand for as a business owner, CEO, solo entrepreneur or whatever you are? What do you really stand for in your business and yourself? What is that? Get clear about it.
  2. What do you believe? So what do you believe about what you do in the marketplace? What do you believe about the value you bring? What do you believe about your team (if you have a team)? What do you believe about your employees, the company, that type of thing?
  3. What is the first priority for you in your business? What is the number one thing? Sometimes we’ve forgotten what that is, so it’s important to touch base with that again.
  4. How do you go about making decisions in your business? Do you actually have a process that you go through to make decisions or are you just doing it randomly with intuition or on the fly? This question has helped a lot of people to develop a process for making great decisions for their business and their companies.
  5. How do you connect with people now? How do you connect with your employees first and then how do you connect with your customers second? Are you doing this in a systematic way? So once again we’ll bring that into focus.
  6. What are some good connection points that you haven’t been taking advantage of that you could with your employees and with your customers?

These are just some checkup points that create value for people. When you think about these things and answer the questions, you can then put things back into your business that you may have forgotten or add new things to give more focus and and clarity about what you believe. This will help you remember what you stand for and figure out who’s important to you. Once you’ve figured these things out and gotten focused again, it’s amazing how the results come back to your business in the way of increased revenue for you and value that you create for your clients.

Thanks for your time today and make it a great day. Reach out to us at confidencecoach.org/contact. We love hearing from you.

Today I wanted to talk to you about how you can use clarity and vision for the future to lead well as a business owner, CEO or entrepreneur. I’d like to give you an effective way to help you lead your team and/or your employees, as you go forward.

When we talk to employees, we have seen that one of the areas where they feel uncertainty or unrest, and they start procrastinating and maybe not performing at their highest level, is when they lack a clarity and a long-term vision from the owner, CEO, or entrepreneur. So if you haven’t talked about or let your employees know your vision in the last six months, one of the things that we’re helping our clients with is how to have what we call a “clarity” talk.

Here’s how to have a clarity talk: Get your group or team together and in about 15 or 20 minutes, give them the long vision of what you’re seeing and what your plans are; what the strategy is; where you’re going; what’s happening in the industry.

They need to hear this from you at least a couple of times a year. When you do this, what you find out is that all the uncertainty about the future and all the negativity that is coming at them (fear via social media, the news or maybe something happening in their own life), this will help dispel that a little bit. They will realize that you’re actually thinking, planning, and strategizing about the long-term future of your company and your business as it goes forward. This helps bring clarity to them; which brings confidence and courage, and then a willingness to invest even deeper into the work that they’re doing in your business.

We suggest that you really focus on this idea of giving a message of clarity that comes directly from you about the business, about their long-term future. Which for a lot of them, they’re looking at the company as their future vehicle to get them where they want to go. But if they don’t hear it from you on a consistent basis, their minds can wander. They can think that another company is a better opportunity because there’s more clarity about where they’re going, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and who’s doing what.

So that’s our tip for today. Bring clarity and leadership to your company by giving them this clarity/vision talk on a regular basis. Once again, if you found this valuable, let us know. If you’d like to know more about how to put a clarity talk like this on, we could give you the template to do that. Please subscribe to our Youtube channel, share this information, and we’re always available to do a free consultation with you if you’d like to know more about how we’re helping business owners and CEOs today.
