A lot of aspiring coaches are hesitant to invest in coaching themselves.
I know, because I had the same hesitations and reservations.
At the end of the day, it comes down to fear of responsibility.
I realized I was afraid to invest in myself, because it would then be my responsibility to make use of that investment!
Here’s the truth about investing in a coach:
-Money is representative of the energy and commitment behind your investment to yourself
-Having someone give you guidance and support will save you time trying to figure it out on your own
So you have to decide, what’s more important: your time or your money?
Guess what, having all the time in the world doesn’t mean you’ll know what to do with it.
If you don’t know how to get to where you want to go, you need some help.
The first step is admitting this and acknowledging the problem outright.
Next, you have to look for solutions.
How do you get skilled at anything?
By practicing the skill.
How do you know what to practice?
Ah, that’s where a teacher, coach, or guide comes in.
You need someone to show you the ropes – but only someone who has been where you are and has now got what you want.
That’s who you should hire to help you get there.
Ultimately, though, you can’t just throw money at the problem and expect it to go away.
No matter how good the coach or the coaching program, the result will always be up to YOU.
You have to show up and put in the work!
Otherwise your worst fear will come true – nothing will change until you do.
If you want to coach people, you have to trust in the process – and what better way than getting coached yourself?
If you’re not willing to do what you’ll be asking your clients to do, well that’s just being a hypocrite.
