I was recently listening to “The School of Greatness” podcast hosted by Lewis Howes. He interviewed fitness expert and transformational coach, Shaun T. You can listen to the podcast here, but if you want to get to the part that fascinated me, jump to the 44-minute mark.
In a nutshell, Shaun T. says that when he hears “Press Play,” it seems like a game to him. But when he hears “Press Go,” it’s a commitment to face whatever challenge or obstacle is in front of him.
So, this got me thinking about why I am so passionate about my coaching practice.
I “pressed go” when I left my position with an educational non-profit and took the leap to launch my coaching practice full-time. This was an opportunity for me to serve more people than I have ever done in my career. It was a chance for me to run my business. So, when I got specific about who I serve with what specifically, this is what I know.
I work with people who are ready to “Press Go” and make significant strides in their career.
My clients are excited and ready to tackle the professional challenges that are in front of them.
They are ready to “show up” so they can empower their teams, their organizations, their customers, and most importantly, take their career to an entirely different level.
Because when they “Press Go,” they are ready to create change.
And when people are ready to “press go,” there is some event that has caused them to consider what making a big career step might look like and why they would want to consider working with a coach like myself.
Perhaps they have just completed an annual performance appraisal and are ready to create those next steps.
Maybe they recognize that it’s time to go after that internal promotion they have desperately been wanting for a few years and NOW,
it’s time to go after it.
They are ready to find that new, exciting, and intriguing position within a company.
They are ready to state their value and worth and leverage
all of their talents with a new organization.
They already have the job of their dreams and want to “show up”
as their best each day!
When we “press go,” we are ready to take our career to the next step. We are prepared to make some significant changes in our responsibilities and how we serve our organization/company.
What would it look like if you intentionally decided to “Press Go” this week in your career?
