It’s been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
We’ve all been there before, right? Maybe it’s the disappointing results from dating the same kinds people all the time. Or it could be the lackluster efforts from leading your team. Or even down to the low grades you get on your homework and tests.
As a coach, I want to tell you that this is actually a great thing!
Let me tell you about a metaphor I learned from the Marine Corps.
When you’re on the shooting range and you’re taking a bunch of shots, you always aim for the center of the target.
Here’s the thing, though: it’s not important to hit the center of the target right away.
What you want is a nice grouping.
There are a lot of variables that go into accuracy. If your shots are grouping nicely, then as a coach we can adjust your aim to get you hitting the center of the target.
So, if you’re doing the same things and getting the same disappointing results, that’s the same as grouping within your life decisions.
Some instructors will make minor adjustments. Nudging pieces here or there until you eventually get to center.
That can take a long time and be even more frustrating.
What’s always worked for me and my students has been to make bold adjustments to shoot in the black. This worked at the shooting range just like it’s worked for my clients with their life choices.
It might not feel comfortable, but don’t be limited by your current knowledge, skills, or abilities in achieving your goals.
What’s your bold adjustment? What are you going to do differently?
If you’re still feeling stuck, don’t worry. Most of us do at some point or another. That’s why High Performance Coaching was developed: to help high achievers make bold adjustments in order to attain their goals and dreams.
