1. We haven’t been taught to hire a coach.
Or invest in ourselves
Unless we NEED desperate help
2. We are doing OK by ourselves, and OK is enough
We should be able to fix ourselves
Even though we see the value of hiring a coach for our bodies
3. We don’t know what coaching is, and if it will help us
The unknown is scary, our brain wants to avoid it
Even if that means staying stuck
4. There are short term temporary fixes that are easier
Netflix, scrolling online, online shopping, travel to escape, alcohol, food…
Knowing they don’t really help
5. We are afraid we’re the special ones
With something seriously wrong with us
The ones that this won’t work for
So we keep quiet, and keep in our brain, believing this more and more with every day that goes by
6. People will judge us
Even though they are too busy thinking about themselves
And when they see the growth in you, you will inspire them
7. We are too busy
Trying to do all the things all the time
We don’t know how much time we will save until we have done it
These are the reasons we don’t hire a coach.
These are the reasons we don’t get unstuck
These are the reasons we don’t get sh”t done
We dig our heels in to what isn’t working and tire ourselves out
The question is, are you more attached to these stories in your brain or the future you REALLY want?
I invested in coaching, and continue to invest in coaching.
Now I live my purpose, being the most successful I have ever been, working less hours, deciding my own schedule.
I am married to my best friend, and feel more connected to my friends all over the world even though we speak less, I have the best relationship with my family (even when we all lived under one roof!)
I stopped smoking, drinking coffee and relying on alcohol to have fun.
I built a daily yoga and meditation practice, drink more water and became an organized person.
I am already living my dream and now my dreams just get to grow.
I am not unique — this happens to my clients again and again.
Was it worth challenging my story about coaching?
Imagine what is possible for you.
If you want to take that first step towards it, let’s talk.
