In the wake of our global trauma, it’s the perfect time to stop making decisions for the person you are, and begin making decisions for the person you are becoming.
Who you were before Covid-19 will be different from who you will become in the future, so let’s get started uncovering who that incredible version of you will be.
There are many ways to do this, but one way is to use a tool known as “The Wheel of Life.” It’s used by coaches, including Tony Robbins, to rate your level of satisfaction across eight aspects of your life. A free copy of The Wheel is online here at my website clearchannelcoaching.com. Go and print out a copy; it’s my gift to you.
The Wheel is divided into eight quadrants that include Career and Work, Family and Friends, Health and Wellbeing, Romance, Home and Physical Environment, Personal Growth and Dreams, Money and Finance, and Fun and Recreation.
Look at each segment of your life, and assess your satisfaction level today. The objective is to mark each segment on a scale of 1 to 10; 1 being a very low or no level of satisfaction to 10 being highly satisfied.
When you connect the segment spokes with a line and create a new perimeter of the circle, ask yourself how bumpy your ride would be if it were a real wheel.
Now you know your satisfaction level with life today; let’s think about the future. For each life area, ask yourself these four questions
What’s possible when I am fully satisfied with this area of my life?
Who will I become?
Who will help me?
What will I stop resisting to bring what I truly want into my life?
Let’s say your level of satisfaction with your career today is 5, and six months from now you’d like it to be 8. What commitment will you make to yourself to manifest this change?
Here’s an example of how to start the process of improving your career satisfaction and moving the needle from 5 to 8.

The benefits of learning how to stop making decisions for the person you are and start making decisions for the person you want to become are different for everyone. For creative thinkers and extraordinary leaders like you, try the exercise and let me know what you learn about yourself. For example did you:
Can you remember learning to ride a bicycle? Probably a family member or friend ran behind holding the back of the bicycle seat until you found your balance and speed to ride unaided. Thats the metaphor of having a coach. Someone to champion and support you as you grow a new skill, gain momentum and confidently ride away unaided.
Being open and willing to change is hard, but having support from a leadership coach is a game changer. If you’d like to learn about my 1:1 coaching program, please schedule a complementary call here.
