Act Now! Coaching Principles

Act Now is the underlining principle of Anna McCoy's coaching style.  As your coach, I am committed to help you achieve your goals and experience the success in your life that you know you can achieve but with some extra pushing.  In order to coach you successfully you must agree to these six coaching principles:

  A - Accountability

First things first, accountability is the key to winning.  It is submitting yourself, your ideas, your challenges and your desires to another.  It is saying that you are willing to accept the responsibility of allowing another into your world to help you keep your promises and commitments to yourself.  Accountability helps you to stay honest with yourself and others.  You must be willing to make agreements with others and then allow them to confront you on keeping those agreements.  Webster's dictionary defines accountability as an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions.

C- Character

Character is being who you say you are publicly, privately.  Character is an inward desire to be the best you can be with moral convictions that you will not compromise at any cost.  You must be a person of moral excellence and firmness.  You must desire to do well at all times. 


A teachable spirit and attitude will be your greatest asset for achieving your goals. In order to succeed at your goals you must remain teachable. If you desire to be coached you must trust your coach and be prepared to learn new things.  Coaching pushes you beyond your comfort zone, your current belief system and encourages you to try and learn new ways and methods to achieve your goals. 

 N- Never Quit

You must have an attitude of a conqueror.  Your attitude can make you believe you are someone that you are not until you become that someone you desire to be.  Never quitting is a confession of an "I can" belief system.  Your 'can do' attitude coupled with your coachs 'you can do it' attitude will catapult you forward and give you the foundation you need to move forward continously. 

  O- Optimism

Optimism is a friend that tells you 'everything will work out even when you can't see it'.  Believing in the highest good in any situation will keep you focused on the goal and not the detour or the barrier that blocks your view of future success. 


Your word is your bond even in the simplest of situations.  You must be a keeper of your word and honor your word as you honor others by fulfilling your agreements even when it is to your detriment.  As you develop the habit of keeping your word you will convert more of your opportunities to value.
