One of the key transformational coaching tools is the concept I've termed, "Mind the Gap."

What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life) | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"In the past decade, there has been a lot of fascinating academic research conducted around habit formation and willpower. By examining things like how smokers quit, why student perform well, and how New Year's resolvers stay on track, researchers are starting to piece together the answers to how we can build lasting habits and improve our ability to resist temptation. One surprising result is this: to improve your overall well-being, start a new regular habit. Pretty much any positive habit will do."

Angie Mc's curator insight, September 21, 2013 1:13 PM

"I think we should use willpower to cultivate delight in our lives rather than seeing it as a way of dropping bad habits. Those lovely new joys we’re practicing may very well nudge out what we don’t want in our lives as a side benefit."

What Is Holding You Back? - Leaving Work Behind

What Is Holding You Back? - Leaving Work Behind | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
If you understand what motivates you then you can figure out how to achieve anything.

Look back on your life — how many times have you given up on something? More times than you can count, I’m sure. I personally could start rattling off any number of things: from musical instruments, to sports, to intellectual endeavours.

Generally speaking we give up because of a lack of motivation and/or willpower.But how often do you actually look closely at those factors and seek to understand the underlying issues that prevent you from achieving something you set out to do? To my mind, you have the best chance of achieving your goals when you have a full understanding of (a) what drives you and (b) what holds you back.

And that is exactly what I want to write about (and help you with) today.
