Ten Life Coaching Beliefs for Personal Development

Part of Personal Development All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

This list gives you ten truths about yourself that you can use to replace any old, unhelpful beliefs such as ‘I’m lazy’ or ‘I never succeed at anything’. At first you may find it hard to hold these new beliefs about yourself, but persevere to make them come true for you:

  • You Are Unique. ‘What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.’ (Henry David Thoreau)

  • Your Whole Life Is the Canvas for Coaching. ‘I’ve learned that you can’t have everything and do everything all at the same time.’ (Oprah Winfrey)

  • You Hold Your Own Agenda. ‘You will recognise your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need.’ (Jenny Gillies)

  • You Are Resourceful. ‘Don’t be timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.’ (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

  • You Are Capable of Great Results. ‘Change your thoughts and you change your world.’ (Norman Vincent Peale)

  • You Can Generate the Right Solutions for Yourself. ‘All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.’ (Galileo Galilei)

  • You Are Free From Being Judged. ‘Some people find fault like there is a reward for it.’ (Zig Ziglar)

  • You Can Make Powerful Choices. ‘If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want and all that is left is a compromise.’ (Robert Fritz)

  • You Take Responsibility for Your Results. ‘It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible but also for what we do not do.’ (Jean-Baptiste Moliere)

  • You Trust Your Senses. ‘As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.’ (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
