3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize - The Coaching Tools Company Blog

3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize  - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Here are 3 types of successes people rarely stop to recognize:

 

1) Concrete steps taken towards larger goals. 

 

2) Successes of PERSONAL value, but not necessarily recognized by others. 

 

3) Our failures AND mistakes. Overcoming failures and mistakes MUST be celebrated.  If we have failed – it is because we risked and it is only by risking that we make changes in our lives. Plus, when we reject our mistakes and failures we also reject a part of ourselves.

 

Suggestion: Set up a session to help your client celebrate their success – and honour themselves. And not only are you celebrating, you’re reframing success and failure, and building their self-esteem too!

To Find Success, First Write Your Failure Resume

To Find Success, First Write Your Failure Resume | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

An old proverb reminds us that “success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan.” To learn from failure, however, you have to “own” it. You have to figure out what went wrong and what to do better next time. If you don’t, you’re liable to repeat your errors in the future.

This is my Insight using Step Inside thinking routine,

I felt that the speaker has stated very important aspects that individuals should have in order to be successful and it also encourages me to persevere on and not give up on just one failure and cower in fear for another failure in an aspect of life.
The speaker is trying to tell listeners that it is not the standard IQ that determines the success of an individual, but their ability to persevere once again for a better change in life.
The speakers used results from her research on successful people to prove the importance of a factor that affects success and it would allow others to be enlightened by this and strive again for the better.

8 Steps for Breaking Through Any Obstacle

8 Steps for Breaking Through Any Obstacle | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

This weekend I came across a video of kids breaking through wooden boards with their hands. I was curious about the technique that these kids were taught in karate class so I started researching it.

The first page I found was at www.WikiHow.com, which had an article called “How to Break a Board with Your Bare Hand.”

As I read through the steps, I was amazed at how similar the steps for breaking a board are to the steps for overcoming all other obstacles in life.

Henry David Thoreau on Defining Your Own Success

Henry David Thoreau on Defining Your Own Success | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Henry David Thoreau remains best-known for one of history’s most important texts on protest and for Walden, his beautiful 1854 paean to solitude, simplicity, and self-sufficiency. The book synthesizes Thoreau’s insights derived over the two years he spent in a cabin by Walden Pond, woven of exquisite language full of magnificent metaphors and whimsical descriptions, and spanning everything from the nature of the self to consumer culture.
My favorite part, however, deals with a familiar subject — how to define your own success, find your purpose and do what you love...

Over time, our society's notion of success has been reduced to money and power. How do you measure success?

Sarah Frame's curator insight, March 31, 2014 5:00 AM

Love this! Especially like the bit about what is said in a funeral eulogy. I am mindful though that it isn't always easy to make adjustments 'for a better life' when we are striving to keep jobs, meet targets, stay afloat financially, make relationships work etc. When I was juggling bringing up a young family and building a career, the last thing I really needed was someone saying I needed to make time for me too! But at least be kind to yourself, stop expecting more of yourself than you do of others, accept you will make mistakes and celebrate being able to pick yourself up, admit it and move on,sometimes the best we can do is muddle through. I often didn't recognise that good enough was in fact good enough.

Re-defining Failure (And Success!)

Re-defining Failure (And Success!) | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
How we define two simple concepts can ultimately lead to brilliant work or paralysis.

 

The two things that will paralyze us creatively faster than any others:
1. We haven’t defined success.
2. We haven’t defined failure.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"(...) when she was a child her father made it a habit to ask on a regular basis “what did you fail at this week?” When she replied, “nothing” he would retort, “Oh…that’s too bad.”

Of this ritual she says, "My definition of failure became ‘not trying’, not the outcome."

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures

Why Perfectionists Are Often the Biggest Failures | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

A few years ago on a college campus, a ceramics professor decided to try an experiment on one of his classes. At the start of the semester he divided the class into two groups and explained that each group would be graded differently.

Group 1 would be graded on the total number of pots they could create throughout the semester, with a minor importance given to quality.

Group 2 would be graded on just one pot. They had all semester to work on just one pot so they better make it impressive.

At the end of the semester, the students all turned in their work for grading. To the professor’s amusement, the 5 highest quality pots all came from the group who was focused on quantity over quality. In fact, most of the pots from Group 2 were terrible. They just looked like over-worked lumps of hollowed out clay.

Why did this happen?
