The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude about the problem!

I love this saying even more as it is the cure to you all your problems!

Firstly stop and take a look at where you are in your coaching business.


Perceived problem #1 – is there something that you’re feeling stuck on that is stopping you progressing?

Attitude Reality – When we focus all our energy on the ‘problem’ we can become caught up in the struggle.

– Ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve, what is the end goal?

Is there someone/somewhere appropriate I can ask to get help with solving this?

Another tip is to find some distance on the problem, go for a walk, do something fun and come back with a fresh mind and perhaps a new perspective.

One more question you might want to ask yourself, is this ‘problem’ merely a beautiful procrastination/excuse not to progress? If so why?

Perceived problem #2 – is it that you’re ‘doing’ but not getting anywhere fast? This is almost more dangerous than the first.

Attitude Reality – We kid ourselves that we are progressing but actually we are just playing without purpose.

– Again, Ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve, what is the end goal?

Check your task list, is everything you’re doing making your boat go faster? Or are they distractions from what you should actually be doing? e.g. fiddling with your website to make it look pretty when you should be focusing on the money making tasks or the clarity issue on your niche!

Have you set goals? Do you have a plan of action with tasks to be delegated, scrapped or scheduled in to make sure they get done?

Do you need someones help to sit down with you and work out your execution plan? If so, go find one instead of using the lack of help as an excuse for not progressing.

Are you perfectly clear on your niche and ideal client? If you’re not crystal clear, all these actions you are taking is a TOTAL WASTE of time… stop… get clear! Don’t know how? See problem #1.

What’s your ‘problem’? and what’s your attitude to the problem? i.e. what is stopping you from solving it?
