“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” — Adrienne Cook
St. Patrick’s Day is only a few days before the first day of spring. It is a fun holiday, and we all get to be Irish for a day and wear something green. It is a day for those who are Irish and those who love the Irish. How do you celebrate this day?
Many people associate St. Patrick’s Day with a leprechaun and his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It is not necessarily a real Pot of Gold but can be a symbolic one. It can represent your goal.
What is your primary goal? Is it:
- Achieving life/work balance?
- Obtaining the job you long for?
- Buying the car of your dreams?
- Traveling on an exotic vacation?
- Or something else?
Only when you identify your primary and other goals can you hope to achieve them.
Working with an Executive Coach facilitates identifying both short- and long-term goals and, most importantly, helps you achieve them. Such a partner helps you brainstorm to identify goals, holds you accountable, and supports you along the way.
In addition, to achieve your goals, you need to be strongly motivated and to have the right mindset. In fact, to achieve most things in life you need the right mindset. It is 80% mindset and 20% action. But mindset puts you into action on a regular basis.
Another important factor in achieving your goals is gratitude.
One of the best ways to get into the right mindset is to express gratitude. It is like sharing a pot of gold. And anyone and everyone is capable of expressing gratitude. Each piece of advice given, greeting offered, or problem you help someone else solve is like sharing your pot of gold. The benefits are numerous and too many to mention here. I will talk more about gratitude next month.
Share your pot of gold with friends and family readily, and you will see your own pot overflow. People will fill your bucket with kind words and appreciation, and you will feel good about the transaction. The transaction doesn’t need to be a monetary; it just needs to come from the heart.
