Five steps to Developing LEAPS
Five steps to Developing LEAPS
May 15, 2017

A LEAP is a jump or spring a long way, to a great height, or with great force.
"I leaped across the threshold"

In leadership coaching, a LEAP is creating those large, out of your comfort goals that move you across the threshold to make those awesome life changes. It takes the same amount of energy to think big as it does to think small; so break open the possibilities to make LEAPS in your life.

1. Break Through. Visualize the most ideal action you see that would have great impact on your life. What accomplishment would move you to the next level? If you could not fail, what would the next LEAP be?

2. Prioritize. Create a focus time to work on your LEAP weekly! Focus on the large impact, not all the distractions that can delay the action. 

3. Commit. Get out the calendar. When we write down and commit to a day, our minds can work on building toward it.

4. Connect to Resources.  Remember that LEAPs interest others. Make a list of people that you can learn from, help you with your leap, and are resources for you.

6. Be positive. Feeling great now about your LEAPs, and believing they are easily attainable will keep you motivated and bring you faster and lasting success. Even when your LEAPs seem difficult or unreachable, remember to visualize yourself succeeding.
