Using Hope – Coaching Challenge

As we near the end of another year, I have mentioned a few times already, that we often get reflective. We set new goals for the coming year, we criticise our past journey, and we often, nitpick at the previous 12 months, taking on the negatives and ignoring the positives.

I wish I had done this.

I wish I had done that.

I should have tried harder.

I should have worked better.

I should have…

I am sure I am not the only one… Yet here I am, at the end of another year. Wondering in some respects, where did the past year go? The truth is, at least for me, it’s easier that way. I have never been great at accepting compliments, and while I can do it, I honestly prefer not to (what is that about right!).

Yet despite our own thoughts getting in the way, our dreams can help raise us up. So, this week I want you to use your hopes to create your dreams for the next twelve months… or is it the other way round lol?

Find someone to connect with this week, and talk about your hopes for the future. What do you dream about? What do you wish for?

I recently found a quote that said “a goal without a plan is a wish”, it’s easy to get lost in the structure of goals. Personally, I like to think of it like this…

A wish is dream that is still being crafted. A dream is a goal that is still being designed. A goal is plan to support your dreams. And it all starts with a little bit of hope.
