Why Get Coaching?
Coaching, like therapy, and forms of self-improvement has it’s detractors or skeptics who question the need for coaching and the benefits. In fact, EVERYONE benefits from having a coach because no matter what kind of genius you are at what you do, a coach can offer you perspective, support, advocacy and accountability like no one else. People who get coaching and stick with it are generally more successful and more satisfied with their success, their progress, and their lives than their counterparts who do not receive the same benefits. I won’t bore you with a ton of statistics proving this. Not surprising, many of the best coaches have coaches themselves and pay dearly to be coached by top coaches.
Myself included. Each year I invest thousands of dollars into seminars, coaching programs and expert consultants. I once heard a top consultant suggest that one invest at least 3% of their earnings in themselves. I invest more than 3%.
So why do I do that?
1. I am the most important and valued asset I have. I want to be the best I can be, learn as much as I can, and be in a position to offer as much as possible to clients so I continually uplevel my awareness, skills, techniques, and knowledge.
2. I am sure to produce a much more substantial return on investment than any stock, bond or other traditional investment. This investment in myself will not only yield more financially, but it also gives me much greater satisfaction and delight!
3. I get to meet and hang out with amazing people, be exposed to their mindset, their energy, and their inspiration; and increase my awareness, motivation, and wisdom. Priceless. Gee, sounds like one of those commercials for a credit card…
