FILLING MY PRACTICE IS THE "HARD PART"



Coaches - for your Consideration


FILLING MY PRACTICE IS THE "HARD PART" . . .


MANY coaches say this to themselves (secretly or not so secretly).


THE TOP 8 CONSEQUENCES OF BELIEVING THIS:

1. Procrastination 2. Fewer conversations 3. Fewer clients 4. Slow financial growth 5. Frustration 6. Fantasies of winning the Powerball intensify 7. Thoughts of finding someone to "take me away from all this" seem more plausible 8. We judge more financially successful coaches and make up things about why it's "easier" for them

And more.


WHAT IF FILLING YOUR PRACTICE IS not THE "HARD PART?"


What if it's a MINDSET ISSUE?


What if you related to COACHING and to FILLING YOUR PRACTICE as exactly the same?


What might occur?


Steve Chandler talks about the TWO HALVES OF COACHING (coaching and the getting of clients), and how, if we can integrate the two halves, everything can change.


At a minimum, we might find both parts equally fulfilling and rewarding.


A CHALLENGE FOR YOU


What if you ran an experiment this week where you ACTED AS IF filling your practice was AS MEANINGFUL AND AS FULFILLING as coaching?


Filling my practice is where I learned to be a better coach.


It's where I learned to listen better.


It's where I discovered new insights about people and what they work with.


Filling my practice is a form of discipline, a joyful discipline where I slow down and remember that the next person is precious, a fellow human being on this journey who has heartfelt dreams...


There's SO much to learn in the consistent filling of one's practice - and doing it again and again.


What would you DO differently this week (you can always go back to the mindset of "filling my practice is the hard part" next week)?


Post to comments what you would do this week as part of your experiment!!
