What can hiring me as your life coach do for you even though you may have a limited budget? Everything. Your life will get exponentially better. Why? God created each and every one of us to be great at something. We each have unique talents and gifts that we can bring to the world in a way that no one else can. Most people are living lives of quiet desperation. They work unfulfilling jobs they hate, are in relationships with people they can’t stand, etc. and they have long since given up on all of their childhood dreams because they think they need to be “realistic”.
If you have high standards for yourself and want to become all that you are truly capable of becoming, then you must let go of your fears and start taking action towards the things you really want in life. If you don’t like what you are doing, you will never be good at. Everyone works at something. Everyone has the same amount of days, minutes and hours. How you choose to spend that time, and what you choose to spend that time doing is the difference that makes the difference. Most people choose to do something they don’t like because they don’t think there is any other way.
A brilliant mentor of mine who is a corporate turnaround expert and strategic planner, a guy who works with Fortune 500 CEOs, taught me that “there is no such thing as a bad idea, only bad plans”. I have found that statement to be true. When someone is unable to achieve the things they really want in the time frame that they think it should be achieved in, they usually give up completely. They’ll take a job they really don’t want because it will pay the bills, marry someone they don’t love, get involved in business with partners who are not honorable people, etc. and spend the rest of their life complaining about what they don’t have or what they think is missing from their lives.
When I talk to clients on the phone for the first time, I asked them to tell me exactly what it is they want to achieve in life. As they share their goals and dreams they also will inadvertently tell me all of their limiting beliefs and things they are doing to sabotage their own success. Because the person is emotionally wrapped up in their own situation, it is sometimes impossible for them to do the things they need to do in order to start creating the life they’ve always wanted because they make choices and think in ways that are not resourceful.
When I talk to them I am able to point these things out so they can see how they are subconsciously sabotaging their own success unnecessarily.
Then, together we come up with a plan of action that they can follow to get themselves on the right track. Success is a process, not a destination. It may take you a decade to create & figure out how to turn your million dollar idea into a million dollar business. How long it takes is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is that you choose to do what you have a burning desire to do. The burning desire and your passion are the fuel that will propel you over, under and around any obstacles you encounter on the journey to making your dreams a reality. Without the passion or burning desire, you’ll simply give up the first time you encounter a challenge or obstacle.
Every successful business or company that I have ever started has only succeeded long after I have had countless doubts and questioned my own commitment to making it successful. Why? Every time I have wanted to quit or give up, I always took a step back and asked myself, “what else would I do?” You know what? Because I have always chosen something I had a burning desire for, when I could not come up with something else better to do than what I was doing, I simply put my head down and plowed forward. Sure, I was pissed off and frustrated that things were not going as I had envisioned, but it never does.
If you want to be happy, successful and fulfilled in life, you must follow your heart. The following is an e-mail I got from someone who just purchased my book. My comments are (in bold brackets like this) in the body of his e-mail:
My name is Keith. So last night I came across your web site and downloaded your book. …omg… I can’t put it down! I’m on pg 82 now. As far as women go I’m not the greatest. Psh lest face it… I suck! I’ve read and downloaded tons of material in that area, but your book has been one of the best things I’ve got my hands on. Period! So thank you! 🙂
So after checking out your other material I quickly became very intrigued. As far as women go I’m taking in a ton of information, but what really caught my eye was the life coaching stuff.
I don’t have much money (tons of doctors appointments from my wreck. Plus no job right now from it) but I can maybe swing a phone call or two. But after that I was wondering what kind of things you would be able to offer (just book coaching sessions with me when you can. Go at your own pace and at the pace your finances will allow you to go at). I’m in a place in my life right now that I could really use someone with your skills and services. Thanks man and I look forward to hearing from you!
“NEVER GIVE UP! Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.”
