When it comes to making tough decisions, not making a decision is always the worst option.
When you get your coaching clients to see that life is happening for them, instead of to them, they will realise that they have learned a valuable lesson from every decision.
A lesson that will help them move forward armed with more information.
They can waste valuable time procrastinating on the little choices in life.
Sometimes, the methods we use to make decisions create additional challenges for us.
However, if your client can decide to follow a specific path to better their decision-making, they can overcome obstacles more quickly and achieve their end goal faster.
By following these four steps for how to make a decision, they will set themselves up to win by discovering the clarity, purpose and decisiveness they need to make their next important decision.
And as their coach, you will help them!
THE 4 STEPS
STEP 1: WRITE IT DOWN
All important or difficult decisions must be made on paper. If your client tries to learn how to make a decision in life using only their head, they will continue to overthink.
Step 2: GET CLEAR ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS
It’s time to be transparent about the meaning behind the decision.
When it comes to how to make a big decision, they must be clear about what they really want – and why they want it.
STEP 3: LET GO OF FEAR
When it comes to making a big decision, don’t let your clients fear ruin their life!
One of the key things to note when learning how to make a life-changing decision is that fear will stop us if we don’t remove the fear.
STEP 4: RECOGNIZE YOUR VALUES
Many times it’s hard for your client to make a decision because they don’t just have one outcome; often, there are many.
When strategizing with them on how to make this decision, you’re going to have to ask them, “Of all these things you want, what’s really number one?
What’s number two?
What’s number three?”
Follow these steps and you will help all of your coaching clients make big, life-changing decisions.
