What kind of support are you getting? Do you know what kind of support you need? How much support is enough?

I would like you to consider the kind of support you are receiving and make sure it is adequate or better yet, incredibly supportive. I dont hear it as often as I used to but there are people who boldly claim that they dont need help or support. I think there was a time when acting independently without anyones support was an admirable trait. To certain extent is still is but it also has its limitations. The bigger the player I work with I notice a very strong support system that allows them to focus on their brilliance. I just spent some time with John Furlong the C.E.O. of the 2010 Winter Olympics. I can tell you that he is so grateful for and proud of the support system that he has in place. Setting up a strong support system is an important element of creating success for anyone and I hope you can do it without feeling bad about asking for support.

I have been very lucky to have wonderful support in my business and personal life. One of the parts of my support system has been my virtual assistant Alexandra Amor. She has been a brilliant confidant, collaborator, organizer and administrative advisor. A few months ago we looked at how my business has grown and realized that I needed more support. I needed someone to do almost anything that wasnt coaching, speaking, writing or building relationships. Alexandra suggested that she would assist in finding the right person and train the chosen candidate. Many of you have been connected to Alexandra in some way. One way is that she creates the Clarity Success Coaching Newsletters that you read. As Alexandra leaves my company I want you to know how truly grateful I am to have had her World Class Support! Thanks Alexandra!

I am pleased to announce that my new assistant is Jennifer MacDonald. Her impact has been felt in the first week of her being on board and I am excited about all of the skills she will be bringing to the company. I have known Jenny for a long time and have been watching her career. In fact I have known her all of her life. She is my daughter and so having a family member taking a key role in the company is very exciting for me.

I am also pleased to announce that beginning in September Shelley MacDougall who has been supporting me as a facilitator for the Happy Healthy Wealthy Game will expanding her involvement with the tele-class part of Clarity Success Coaching. She will also be supporting our clients as a coach and speaker. We are very excited about the many ways Shelley will enhance what we presently offer. Shelley has great experience in the Club Management industry and has been involved with training and development throughout her career. Shelley developed great skills as a trainer for the Dale Carnegie Organization.

Your Support!

Here are some thoughts on the kind of support you might draw upon.
1) Staff This is an obvious one. We are definitely supported by the staff we work with. The question is Are we getting the kind of support we need? Do we have enough? Do we have the right people doing the right jobs? Are they excited about what they do and what we do?
2) Colleagues Many people are supported by colleagues in their organization or their industry associations.
3) Family When we have done our part to build a strong family our immediate family or our extended family can be a great support structure.
4) Friends In our lives we may accumulate many acquaintances but it is more likely that we have a few friends that will be there without hesitation if we ever need anything.
5) Consultants and Professionals As our world, our lives and our businesses become more complex it is unlikely that we have extraordinary competence in all of the parts of our lives that we need it.
6) Spirtitual Support Many people get leadership and support in this area of their life.
7) Coaches and Mentors Why take the slower approach of learning everything through trial and error when you can accelerate your learning with these relationships.
8) Mastermind This type of support has been instrumental in building my business and helping me to visualize and create the kind of life I want to live. Imagine what happens when you borrow the education, experience and resources of 8 or 9 other people.
9) Environments When I work with people I teach them about 9 environments that they can call on to support their success. If you just consider your physical environment as one of the nine you have the chance to see if it is supporting you or not. Is it clean, organized, inspiring and energizing? Does it give you enough natural light?
10) Beliefs Are your beliefs supporting you. Do you have beliefs that is getting in your way. Watch your language and notice the words that come out. Are they supporting your success? Words like, I cant remember names. This business isnt as much fun as it used to be. I feel sick. are powerful words that may not support you.

I hope you get the idea that setting up as many great support systems as possible will make your like more enjoyable and effortless.

Inspirational Quote

"If I can line up the people who, back through the ages, have gone at life in ways I greatly admire, then I can feel their strength supporting me, all their standards and values pointing the way in which I am to go."

Happy Healthy We*althy

Have you ever gone to a seminar, got all pumped up, left with big plans to change your life only to find yourself slipping right back into old habits?

You are not alone. According to surveys, only 10% of personal development books ever get read past the second chapter and even less ever get implemented. "Why?" you ask. It is one thing to "Know what to do"... and something entirely different to get yourself to "Do what you know".

The Happy Healthy
We*althy Game does just that. Combining the best of both seminars and coaching, the structure is that of an actual game with rules, prizes, players, teammates, coaches, and competition. It takes nine weeks to play the game and we play it virtually, over the telephone on a bridge line. The
Happy Healthy We*althy Game is an experience that will help you set your own goals, measure your achievements before and after the 90-day game, and provide you with tools to produce sustainable results.
