I can’t count how many people have told me they will be
ready to work with a money coach as soon as they take care of a few other
things.What could those things be that
would delay starting a positive change in your life?
·I’m too busy or I can’t afford it
·My bills and bank statements are disheveled and
I need to get organized first
·Let me get done with this big project at work
that is distracting me
·I’m stuck right now anyway, so how could I work
someone told you the work phrase “do you want fries with that?” could be in
your past, and the new job pays twice the wage with benefits, why would you
stay in the old job another minute?If
you received a gift certificate for a house cleaning, would you pick up the
house first so they wouldn’t think you are sloppy?
all have reasons we are afraid to move forward.What if I start the new job, and find out that they don’t like me?If we try a new spending plan we might not be
able to see the inside of a restaurant ever again unless we’re working there to
make some extra money.It’s so
overwhelming that looking deeper into the problem will only make it worse and
I’ll get depressed.These fears sound
familiar to most of us thinking about a change in our lives.
recently was in the same quandary about working with a personal coach.I’m afraid I’ll try and fail.I want to be positive that I choose the best
coach for me.I’m not sure that I need
to change all that much.I could spend
the money on something else.I finally
realized if I think the right coach is going to add value to my life, I should
get started.I can think of a few big
decisions that I delayed, and later wondered what took me so long to make the
gone through this thought process, I’ve committed to hiring that coach.I’m ready to be open to change, and I don’t
have to be done with everything else to start the coaching process.Personal coaching is valuable to me, and I
know I’ll make the time and effort to get the most out of it.
What decision are you delaying?Take the first step right now.
