So today I had my weekly mentoring call with one of my success coaches in the training I’m taking. When she asked me to share with her what is going really well in my coaching business, I was briefly stumped.
I knew she had several more calls to do, and me being me, I didn’t want to take too much of her time. So as several things ran through my head, I tried to figure out how to quickly put all of it into just a few words, which is not an easy task for me when it’s unexpected.
I thought about which part was most pertaining to my business success – you know, also trying to make an effort to sound savvy and goal oriented.
But in the end I answered from my heart. That’s always the best, don’t you agree? And from my heart I said:
“You know what’s going well about my business? Me! I am doing well, because even if I don’t reach the goals I set for my coaching before the year is over, I feel successful because I am part of this community. I get to help people and I feel supported by like minded people!”
For a moment I thought “oh boy, that probably wasn’t what she wanted to hear… She was probably expecting me to know how close I am to xyz goal or to say what I was doing to get there that is working.” But instead, we clicked!
We talked about how this community we are now part of has kindled friendships, that feel like they are going to be long-lasting. And to me, someone who doesn’t easily make real life friends, that’s the part that’s going really well and I know the rest will follow!
Coaching people in their fitness and health, coaching others to be coaches and being coached yourself, requires building relationships and it demands trust in each other, trusting that people want the best for you.
If you want to be part of a great community, if you are working on your own health and fitness, and you enjoy helping others, then I invite you to fill out this coach application. There are a few questions that will help me learn more about you and help you figure out if coaching is a good fit for you!
