Focus Coaching Is Your Personalized Fast Track To Success. It enables you to stay focused on the big picture, set achievable goals to stay on track, and celebrate your successes every step of the way.
- How are you getting on with fulfilling your dreams?
- Is your life on track and leading you unfalteringly towards the things you most want to achieve?
- Or are you feeling challenged and thwarted before you even take the first step?
For the majority of us, it is easy to wake up filled with inspiration and passion for the things we want to achieve. We may even jump out of bed saying today will be different, I will make that phone call, put that plan in action and make it my priority. Then before we know it, the day has overtaken us and we fall exhausted into bed, feeling disappointed that we are still in the same place we were yesterday and those plans we had often feel distant and elusive.
It is very easy to set goals, but the truth is, nothing will change if you keep doing what you have always done. If you want to things to happen you have to make room for an action plan.
The first hurdle with any goal is to make room for it in your busy schedule. The next is to keep it as a priority no matter what else is going on. Even with this in place, there are inevitably going to be tasks that you don’t enjoy, or times when you feel stuck and avoid what is necessary.
Keeping to your plan when you meet these challenges is the third and most difficult hurdle of all. I have worked with 100’s of people, and I see this every day. I even experience it myself. So I do know how hard it is to stay motivated when it is easier to just give up or put the task off for another less busy day.
The problem is, that ‘less busy’ day never comes and before long your goal has once again become elusive and distant.
Will Power Is Not Enough
Even with the best intentions, most people find that will power is not enough. There are good psychological explanations for this. If we are having to exert large amounts of will power, it is usually because we have met a block in our resolve. Or worse still, our overriding desire is to stay exactly where we are, in the familiar comfort zone.
Will power is like an over worked muscle. At the start of the day when the mind is fresh and the will is strong it is easy to say you will achieve your goal. However, a few unexpected tasks, conversations or meetings later and all that resolve has dissolved into exhaustion and overload.
To move forward we have to forget about will power and focus on stepping beyond that familiar comfort zone to create new habits.
Commitment & Accountability
One good way to stay on track is to have an accountability partner. This can be a co-operative process with a friend or work colleague, but to work at it’s optimum there must be no collusion.
We all love to support people, and we want to show we care. However, tough love is a skill that only a few possess. This is where coaching comes into its own. With a professional coach, you can talk through issues, gain insights and receive the type of support that is not always possible with friends and colleagues.
Focus Coaching is a technique I discovered during my own coach training and have since developed to support my clients in successfully setting and achieving their goals.
The Focus Coaching Technique
Focus Coaching supports you in fast tracking your way to success. The process encourages you to stay focused on the bigger picture and set achievable goals to stay on track. It requires financial commitment and self discipline, but my unique packages also include personal rewards to help you celebrate every achievement along the way.
- You book your appointments at times that suits you.
- We meet in Zoom for private one-2-one sessions that are recorded.
- Sessions are time restricted, so it is important to be well prepared and focused.
- In the first session we discuss your overall goal and strategy for achieving it. By the end of this session you will have your first achievable step clarified and have set a date for its completion.
- In each consecutive session we discuss the next step, the commitment required to achieve it and set a date for it to be completed by.
- A recording of each session will be sent to you along with a booking link to set your next session.
- You are personally responsible for deciding what each step will be and setting your own time frame for its completion. The achievement must be reached before booking your next session (absolutely no excuses accepted).
- If you complete your achievements and attend your next session within the agreed time, a financial reward will be credited to the bank account of your choice.
The money received for achieving your goals is not a refund. It’s a personal reward for your commitment to each task. So even if the end goal is not about you, the reward should still be a personal gift you receive and use to celebrate your success in any way you choose.
Everyone has a different perspective on value and it is reflected in everything we do. Financial value is often measured by our income and lifestyle. Where we spend our money is determined by what we value most. Likewise the people we choose to spend time with is determined by how much we value them in our lives.
Although our daily activities strongly reflect these values, we seldom give them conscious consideration. Even more overlooked is how we value ourselves. Sadly, we often use negative experiences to undervalue who we are and what we bring to the world. It is time to change all that.
Celebrating Your Achievements
Focus Coaching not only supports you in setting and achieving goals, it also supports you in valuing your contribution to the world and the work that you do.
Celebrations are an important way of honouring a right of passage. This can be a birth, coming of age, business promotion, marriage or even divorce. Although often a sombre occasion, a funeral is still a valuable way of celebrating someone’s life and what they brought to the world.
Celebrating an achievement gives it focus and meaning. It is how we determine value and success. The greater the achievement the more likely we are to celebrate it. So the most wonderful way to honour your personal successes is to celebrate them.
This is why I have incorporated rewards into the Focus Coaching packages.
Choosing Your Focus Coaching Package
Imagine how you will feel when you achieve your goal. The relief, the joy, the well deserved pride. If this goal is important to you, then it is also important that you celebrate every step you take towards achieving it. That is why the Focus Coaching packages are set up with several benefit options.
No matter whether the goal is for personal gain or for someone else’s benefit, the rewards are issued with the sole intent that they are used to personally celebrate your achievements. The more generous you are with your rewards, the more you honour your personal value and the more likely you are to achieve the goals you set yourself.
Each plan includes an initial 45 minute preparation session and a set number of shorter achievement sessions. The last session is a review of your overall objective and an opportunity to discuss next steps or book further sessions if desired. Rewards are issued as individual payments into your preferred bank account after completion of each achievement.
This is your commitment to your success. Before booking, consider how many steps it may take to achieve your desired outcome and how many rewards you would like to receive along the way. If you are fully committed to a long-term goal, then go ahead and book 12 sessions.
However, if your goal is short term or you have doubts about your commitment you may prefer to go for 6 sessions with the the higher reward option as an additional incentive. Once you have made the commitment there is no going back, but there is always an opportunity to book further sessions later if you wish to continue.

Contract Agreement And Refunds
The first session is about us getting to know each other, defining your goal and establishing the best way I can support you. By the end of this session you will have a clear action plan, established what your first step will be and have set a date for it to be completed by.
It is your responsibility to set each individual goal and the time you require to achieve it. Which means you can set a pace that fits your schedule. However, once the completion date is decided, it cannot be moved. Rewards will be credited to the bank account of your choice if the next meeting is attended within the agreed time frame.
It is important to be aware that this system works because of its strict accountability framework. This includes the restrictions set on refunds and rewards. Each session is dedicated to the next achievement step and exploring everything that could possibly get in the way of completing it. Receiving rewards is solely dependent on meeting the objective within the time you set at the preceding meeting. There are no exceptions to this – even if the circumstances are out of your control.
The full fee is paid when booking your first session. After that no further payments are required. Following this session you have 7 days to consider the agreement and can pull out of the commitment if you wish (please notify me in writing to receive your refund.) After the seven days your commitment is sealed and no further refunds are available.
My desire is for you to achieve your goals with ease and I look forward to supporting you every step of the way.
