A friend was telling me that she really wanted to do coaching, but couldn’t afford a coach. I hear this on occasion, and my response is always the same: actually, you can’t afford not to have a coach.
Coaching is an investment in yourself and in your future. You get the opportunity to focus on your specific goals and how you, personally, can get to where you want to be. There is no judgment or expectations other than your own. Coaching is tailored to you and what you are willing and able to do. And if you find that your goals really aren’t your goals, then we can discover what those are, too.
If you were going to a job interview or to meet your future in-laws for the first time, you might need a new outfit to boost your confidence and portray yourself in the best possible light. You wouldn’t go to Wal-mart to find that outfit, you’d go to a store that specialized in the type of clothes you were looking for, and even if you bought it off the sale rack, you’d feel good about spending that money. You might even buy a pair of shoes to go with the new outfit.
It’s the same with coaching. If you told your boss or your best friend that you had this great opportunity to improve your job performance or your relationships with yourself and others, but you weren’t sure you had enough time or money, they would say you were crazy. They’d walk you to your computer and make you sign up that very minute. And they wouldn’t have you sign up for the Wal-mart version, either.
You invest in your retirement, in your house, in your children’s college fund, maybe even in the stock market. An investment in coaching is a way to get the guidance, support and accountability you need to jump over the hurdles that are getting in your way. Isn’t it time you invested in your future?
