You don’t need a coach
Well, do you have a coach? she asked with a wry smile…
Actually, I have three right now, I said.
What! she exclaimed. What do you need three coaches for?!
Oh, I said, I don’t need any of them. I want them…
Now it was my turn to smile!
You see, I had been talking to a woman who was interested to join the Confident Woman’s Salon. She was powerful and passionate and had achieved a great deal in life. Exactly the kind of woman this program is for. Except this program is by referral or interview only.
So I had spent the past two hours with her to find out all about her. What is she passionate about? What are her dreams and her goals and her aspirations? And what would she absolutely love to achieve in life – if only it didn’t feel IMPOSSIBLE right now.
I know, it sounds crazy, but everything I do these days is aimed at helping my clients CREATE THE IMPOSSIBLE…
One client recently created $40,000 in 24 hours and another $200,000 in two days. The latter has just chosen to up her game and is working on a challenge to create $1.5 million dollars in thirty days!
So, why do you want three coaches then, she asked me?
Well, I’m coached by Michael Neill, the author of Supercoach, because he helps me dream big – bigger than I’ve ever dreamed and he sees my true potential and he believes in me and he inspires me. And he helps me Create the Impossible…
And I’m coached by Steve Chandler because he helps me make outrageous requests. And he challenges me with crazy statements like “Forget marketing! You can do business for the rest of your life with just the people you emailed in the past 30 days.”
And I’m coached by Adam Gilbert because he is passionate about health and fitness and nutrition and he kicks my butt if I don’t keep my commitments.
I’ve actually spent over $100,000 on coaching in the past two years, I said.
And her jaw dropped.
Actually, once I was down to my last $3,000 in my bank account and I was scared.
One month’s expenses. That was it.
That it would run out.
Completely run out…
And then I read an article by Michael Neill where he said – if, as a coach, you are not prepared to spend more money with your own coach than you feel comfortable spending, then why would your clients ever do the same with you?
And in that moment I knew.
I knew that I had to sign up for Steve Chandler’s Coaching Prosperity School.
Only it cost $9,000…
It was crazy. I’d be using almost every last cent I had, for the $3,000 deposit.
AND then I’d still have to pay an additional $5,000 over the coming six months.
But Steve is the creator of Club Fearless, the author of 20 books, and a success coach for CEOs, top professionals, major universities, and over 30 Fortune 500 companies. He has twice won the national Audio of the Year award and he’s been called “the most powerful public speaker in America today.”
I knew I could learn a great deal from this guy.
In fact, Steve believes in the power of coaching so much that he just signed a four-year contract with his own coach. And his coach, Steve Hardison, charges $150,000 a year for his coaching. You pay it all up front. There are no refunds. And you have to fly to Phoenix, Arizona for your coaching sessions!
So I did something crazy.
I sent Steve the check.
I used up all my savings.
And I joined his program…
And then something strange happened – in just over 2 weeks after my first session with Steve, I created $16,000.
I had doubled my investment in a few days.
And then over the next three months, I created over $70,000.
You see, I don’t need a coach.
I love having a coach!
Actually, I often love having several coaches.
They challenge me. They support me. They focus me. And they sometimes kick my butt.
They hold me accountable. And they inspire me.
They see me as bigger than I see myself. And they refuse to listen to my story.
And they help me Create the Impossible.
So YOU don’t need a coach.
In fact, nobody needs a coach. (Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise)
But you might WANT one!
