Are YOU Coachable?

Blog, Blogroll, Life Lessons No Comments

It’s a fair question but a tough one at the same time.

I’m a Business Coach and I preach to all who want to hear that pretty much
everyone needs a coach or coaches in their life.

Even me, especially me. Yes, I need a Business Coach, A spiritual coach,
a fitness and nutritional coach, a financial coach and more.

Fortunately, over time, I have realized this and have them in place.

I go to them often.

It’s good to know that I practice what I preach.

It was not always that way. I really DID think that I could get

it all done on my own and at times it looked like I was successful at it.

But compared to what, how did I know what my potential was, who was going to
tell me otherwise.
Sometimes it’s not until the bottom drops out and you realize two or three heads are
better than one. {There is Wisdom in Many}

How about you? Do you believe in getting coaching for YOU? Have you thought about it
but have reasons [excuses] why you have not? Do you not know WHO to turn to?

What are your reasons? Or, are you still under the assumption that you just don’t need a coach.

For business, I pay a hefty monthly fee to help me hit my goals and keep me on the “straight and narrow”.

Recently, [today] I received an email about my upcoming coaching session. It was a “tough love” warning

that said in in no uncertain terms. “Be ready and prepared with what you were to accomplish this week
or don’t bother getting on the coaching call”. YIKES! My Granddaughter would say that was very harsh.

And I might have some time ago in my early years but not today.

The coach is correct and tough love is needed. Who is giving it to you? Are you up for the challenge?

Do you see solid coaching as someone nagging you or offering golden nuggets and accountability
to help you on your way to where you want to go?

I know the answer. I hope you do too. But more importantly, I hope you are doing something about it.

Lay all your excuses, including “I don’t have the money for a coach” in t he trash can.
{that probably sounds harsh to you}
But if some one does talk to you about this, what’s gonna change?

You know the answer.

So, we are down to the wire here. Change or not change. Get help or go it alone.

As so people have said-“How’s that been working for you”?

My guess, not nearly as good as it could be.

Are you ready for your Action Steps? I hope so. The greatest golfers in the world have coaches.
These golf coaches don’t play as well as the person they are coaching and yet they bring an outsiders
perspective, experience and knowledge that the golf pro did not have or forgot.

Action Step- Decide what area of your life that you want to concentrate on and get to the next level.

Is it your Career? Fitness? Spiritual? It doesn’t matter. What does matter is taking action.

Talk to people who are fit if fitness is your goal. Read books, hire a fitness trainer. They are very flexible
on working with in your budget.
Whatever the category is that you picked, don’t put this “tough love” article you are reading away until
you have set you plan in motion.

You can do it, I can do it. And if we want to choose our words a bit better we say,
You WILL do it, I WILL do it and I AM doing it NOW!!
