When are you ready? by Coach Lei WangMay 18, 2021
“I’m working on it …”
I felt like my coach was pushing me too hard when she asked when I would start my coaching business.
Didn't she see how hard I'm already working?
“I need to finish this course first, so I know how to …”
Then, “I need to finish reading this book, so I know how to …”
Since I enjoy the direct effect coaching can have on people's lives and businesses, I've always wanted to incorporate coaching to my speaking services.
Years passed as I weighed the advantages and disadvantages, questioning whether or not that was the best direction to take...
Then I put in a lot of effort for several months...
I was reading, writing, and attending trainings...
And the never-ending supply of free webinars persuaded me that I needed to add one more tool to my toolbox before I could welcome clients...Oh, and I need to update my website...
Oh, should I rebrand my social media accounts...
Does this sound familiar?
Do you want to guess which book or course got me started in the real world?
The truth is that most of us have a lot of hidden genius inside of us that we aren't aware of. So we kept looking outwards, hoping that one more lesson, one more book would eventually give us the courage to embark on our own journey.
So many people, whether it's a new career path, a new lifestyle, or a new business plan, have big ambitions and the potential to achieve them. They haven't begun yet because they are trapped in their cocoon of perpetual "student" status.
Learning is important. But the best learning happens when you actually do it!
My coach was the one who finally set me in motion, helped me see the genius inside myself, and gave me the courage to step outside of my comfort zone.
