My own personal development is part of the job. What else?
1) It works
You have felt, seen, and experienced its power to transform.
2) “Limiting beliefs”
Blindspots. Stories. False assumptions. Fake news, whatever you call them. You see them all the time.
3) All or nothing
Many clients don’t know that baby steps works.
4) Working on the weak areas hurt
I hate it. You hate it. Clients hate it. Yet a chain is as strong as it’s weakest link.
5) We spot mixed-feelings all the time
“You won’t believe this! But seriously, I love my body. I see so many people who are insecure about themselves and are desperate for that ‘perfect figure’. I am so glad I am not like them” said the client.
And the moment you finished clapping for them they dropped the N-bomb, “Could you help me reduce teeny-weeny fat around my thighs and arms?”
Woah!! Whatever happened to the self-love…
6) Ready, willing, and committed
This is our trademark.
7) Taking things to the next level
We build courage. That’s what coaching is about. Agree?
8) We sometimes don’t know how to convince
We constantly worry about the question, “What makes you an authority on this?”
The truth of the matter is, most of the clients hire the first (and the only coach) they contact. For them, certificates are just a bunch of letters.

9) Selling isn’t my cup of tea
Coaching isn’t coke. It’s a long-term commitment for change. And you know, it isn’t always easy to sell.
