The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach: Why You May Need A Coach
One of the man questions I hear is, ” Do I Really Need A Coach?”. My response was it depends. However as time progress and examining people, I noticed that anyone who ask that question really do need a coach. The people go at it by themselves screw somethings up and become stuck, go into bankruptcy, and/or have a nervous breakdown.
That is why, I have made a list of mistakes that were made before acquiring a coach. This will be a like a David Letterman countdown but instead of 10, I will have 7.

The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach Mistake #3 – Wasting Your Time And Money On Stuff That Doesn’t Give Results
Let’s face it; there are an infinite number of things that you can spend your hard earned money and valuable time on these days. When you know you want things to be different or better it’s easy for you to waste your time and your money in one of two ways.
The first one is spending your time and money collecting information that comes in the form of books, software, seminars, reports or programs. You are collecting information that you believe can help you get what you want.
Now don’t get the wrong idea here, information is a great thing. We are big believers in books and programs being critical tools in helping you get where you want to go, but we want to make something very clear here.
Information alone will not get you results. You cannot expect that your sales will automatically increase just because you read the Guru of Sales’ latest book and you can’t assume that your monthly expenses will automatically organize themselves just because you purchased the newest expenses tracking software.
You will get fulfilling results only by taking consistent action toward achieving your goals based on what you’ve learned from the information you’ve collected.
The second way you may be wasting your time and money is by acquiring and participating in things that have nothing to do with, and even go against, you having what you really want.
Have you ever allowed a month to go by where you indulged every food craving you had and did not exercise regularly, even though your deepest desire is to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and lifestyle? Have you ever gone out and bought an expensive gadget you don’t really need or can’t really afford when what you truly desire is to feel successful and experience financial freedom?
If this sounds like you then you know what it’s like to be running on the hamster wheel of short term gain, in the form of immediate gratification, leading you to long term pain because your life experiences don’t match up with what you really want?
It’s very important to realize that spending your time or money on things that give you immediate gratification but have nothing to do with your goals and values will always leave you feeling empty. Completely and totally empty and looking for the next quick fix.
Instead of wasting your time and money, why not invest in yourself in a way that will accelerate your personal and professional development? Working with a coach on an ongoing basis is the most time and cost effective investment you can make in yourself and your quality of life.
Your coach can teach you how to make the most of what you’ve got and how to do more with less. Your coach will hold you accountable for taking consistent purposeful action towards achieving your goals.
By working with a coach, you will get crystal clear on what you really want, why you want it and how to get it. Having clarity takes the guess work out of things. That way, you will be able to evaluate all future investment opportunities, and by that we mean any and all opportunities for you to spend your time or money, according to their ability to enable you to fulfill your purpose, your vision, your values and your goals.
I did not want to overwhelm you with a lot of information. I will give you time to digest what we have discussed here. If you are currently part of the team, you know that we already have coaching in place and you can see the benefits. For those who are not, I would recommend finding one or you can join our team. Look forward to seeing you all in Part 4 of this series, “The Biggest Mistakes You Can Make Before Hiring A Coach”
