Excel – to be superior to: surpass in accomplishment or achievement.

What would it mean to excel in your life?  Does it mean you would get your dream job?  Would you move to a new city?  Could it involve spending more time with your family?  Is it simply having more money in your bank account?  It’s easy to see that excelling, means different things to different executives and professionals. Reaching your full potential is one way to think about excelling in your life.  Coaching can help you decide what your definition of success is, and how to excel in what ever you choose to do.

Utilizing your talents is one of the foundation principles of Fly High Coaching.  When you focus on your natural talents, things seem to flow and come easy for you.  Instead of struggling to get up in the morning or complete a project, you are passionate and making the most of your time.  Enhancing your strengths, to reach your full potential can be worked on in coaching sessions.  Use these questions to tap into your talents on your quest for excellence!

What comes natural to you?  What are you good at?  Make a list of things or tasks that are easy for you.  Think about things that feel effortless when you are doing them.   Are you natural connector, easily making introductions and getting people together?  Can you strategically map out goals and execute your plans?  Usually your talents are some of the first ten things that come to mind.

What do others compliment you on?  Is there a pattern or recurring them?  Sometimes others can provide insight into our special qualities.  Be sure not to dismiss any thoughts or take anything for granted.  Whether you have chosen to embrace your uniqueness up until this point or not, now is the time!  Consider all of the positive feedback you can remember.

What could you do for hours and lose track of time?  Now its time to get to the nitty gritty.  What are you passionate about?  What seems to make time stop when you are doing that activity?  Really get in-tune with your thoughts and feelings here.  What things do you want to regularly incorporate into the rest of your life? 

How can you take that talent to the next level?  Reaching your full potential depends on what your goal is.  This is why working with a coach to get clear on your vision and plans can be so transformative.  Would regular practice be enough to take it to the next level?  Or do you need to learn more and get your talent to work for you?  How can using your talent help you make money or create lasting change?


If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to excel, brainstorming about your natural talents is a great place to start.  Once you are clear on your vision and what you want to achieve, utilizing your talents will help you reach your full potential.  If you would like to discuss taking your talents to the next level, contact us for a FREE Vision of Success Coaching Interview.
