It was said a few days ago that it wasn’t really possible for me to teach others to coach themselves. Coaching should be left in the hands of professionals.
As someone who has spent more than 15 years coaching in one guise or another, as a fitness instructor, personal trainer, marketing consultant and life and executive coach, I certainly wouldn’t put forward anything that undervalues the art and discipline of coaching. Coaching is a profession that takes skill, experience, and insight into human behavior. I’m very proud of being a coach, and love nothing better than working with another on a 1-2-1 basis and helping them achieve awesome results.
There are millions of people “out there,” who would benefit substantially from coaching but who for one reason or another cannot or choose not to avail themselves of the services of a professional coach. Many feel that only elite sportsmen or successful executive business people can afford coaching, but that’s not the case anymore.
I have created the Coach Yourself Course for those people who want to create a new future for themselves, either by modifying or changing behavior that is hindering them or by adopting new, more productive habits to improve their performance in all areas of life. I will teach others to coach themselves, and become their greatest asset.
Change is, first and foremost, an interior game; you are the star player. Self-coaching is a way for you to undertake the process of self-discovery and self-mastery, enabling you to achieve personal breakthrough.
It’s first crucial for those wanting to transform their lives to accept personal change is a matter of choice and totally within their control, no longer allowing or believing it was dependent on external circumstances or other people. It’s all down to the individual.
Everyone is capable of moving from where they are now to a better future, reaching their desired outcome. But ultimately it is down to their commitment and intention and whether they have the determination to break through.
Self-coaching can help anyone achieve lasting change but it can only begin with you saying to yourself that ‘yes I can achieve this.’ Often people think they are willing to change, but they really aren’t. They may be highly motivated at the beginning, but unless they have a good deal at stake, the ardor soon cools. By this I mean you need a big goal that’s never out of your mind and that drives you out of bed excited by taking action.
So what’s your big goal that will keep you inspired and motivated to bring about massive change?
