One of my clients recently referred his mother to me for coaching. How cool is that?! He felt his mother, aged 69 turning 70, just might benefit from coaching with me.
How wonderful it is getting referrals from my clients…it’s the ultimate compliment and a great way for me to reach and help more people. What an honor to be referred to a mother. She had this notion that she wasn’t done in life by any means and asked me if I could help her find new purpose and meaning in what she calls her “4th Quarter”. How beautiful?!
In working with this 69-year-old woman who is so committed and accountable to the coaching process, I realized we’re on to something special. The 4th Quarter of life can be rich with opportunity, possibility and purpose. So, I’m offering this coaching niche of supporting people to help make their “4th Quarter” an exciting, fulfilling part of their life.
Just as I do with any age client, I guide my 4th Quarter clients to take a personal inventory. It’s a great time to take a good look at you.
Here are some steps I recommend for your personal inventory:
Identify your Strengths / Capabilities / Skills / Talents
Create your Lovable List…your qualities and traits that make people want to be with and spend time with you
Identify What You Like to Do / What You’re Good At / What the World Needs / and What the World May Pay For…this will help you focus on your new Life Purpose
Surround your life in positivity…people who believe in you / activities that bring you purpose and fulfillment / time for yourself to replenish and enrich your life and soul
