‘I hired a coach and didn’t get the results I was after, I was disappointed!’
These kinds of comments that I saw last week, seriously inspired me to write this article…
I feel for these people and you if you’re feeling equally let down, particularly if you genuinely had a bad coach (bad defined by the fact that they are only about making money and not about serving their clients!)
However, I suspect that the people that regularly seem to say these statements have pinned their entire success on one coach, on one strategy or on one ‘magic pill’ that they were hoping to swallow and make it all better.
I’ve worked with 4 coaches so far in my time as an entrepreneur and my ‘monetary success’ only started to appear after the fourth coach.
That isn’t because the first three didn’t have what it took, in fact, every single one of my coaches has brought so much gold to my business and success it’s been phenomenal. And I knew they would! How? Because I stalked them beforehand to make sure their free stuff was awesome!
The reason it worked after the 4th is that ‘I’ pieced the three ingredients for success together – Clarity, Strategy and Mindset… I HAD to have all three of these puzzle pieces in place before I could earn REAL money.
It wasn’t anyone’s fault that I didn’t earn that REAL money beforehand, asides from my own! I take FULL responsibility for my success and I NEVER pin it on anyone.
I urge everyone to do the same: 9 times out of 10 it’s not your coaches fault you didn’t get the results!
My first coach touched upon all 3 of those puzzle pieces in the beginning but ‘I’ hadn’t expanded far enough to implement all three.
And this is the thing, be honest with yourself on the areas you are focusing, have you taken action and implemented correctly everything you and your coach agreed to do? And do you need something else as well as the area your current coach is focusing on?
The key is to hire a coach who has the expertise in the area you’re currently struggling with that’s stopping you from moving forward.
The reality is, you may have to invest in several different experts depending on how many areas you’re struggling with.
BUT that’s the point, that’s why we’re the expert so we can help with the specific issue, not touch all the issues lightly and get us no further forward. I had success with every one of my coaches, as with every investment I made giant leaps forward toward my monetary goal.
Let me tell you that if I hadn’t worked with ALL 4 experts I wouldn’t have made where I am today.
Stop blaming others for your lack of success and take control of your destiny!
The only one to blame is you, so dust yourself off, do the work and DO NOT give up! You may or may not need to invest in 4 coaches, but if it meant investing in 4 or give up on your dream… what would you do? Said from a place of LOVE!
