Yesterday I woke up to 5 inches of snow! Hard to believe that a few days earlier I had been walking around outside in short sleeves! Hopefully you are somewhere warmer and less snowy…like the beach!
Last week I held a training call on boosting your confidence as a new coach. Not feeling confident is one of the biggest obstacles that I hear from my coaching clients.
This is my favorite topic because confidence allows us to go after the things we really want in our life and business. Also, I know there are clients just waiting to work with you, but you have to make yourself visible first, so they can find you!
The first step to upping your confidence = CLARITY
Clarity affords focus ~Thomas Leonard
Too often we put our dreams for our life and business on hold because we are not clear on what we really want.
Not having a clear vision for your coaching business can result in feelings of fear and overwhelm. It is difficult to get started, when you have no idea where you are trying to go.
I experienced this when I started my chiropractic and nutrition practice. I no real vision for my business. Or I did, but I did not think it was acceptable. So I start building my business according to what I thought it should look like.
I soon found that the traditional chiropractic/nutrition practice was not aligned with my vision and I was left feeling lost, stuck and unhappy.
As soon as I got clear on what I wanted my business to look like…not what I thought it should look like, the path to get me there became evident.
When you feel clear about what you want to achieve, then you can move forward in your desired direction.
So how do you get clear?
The trick here is to leave the shoulds behind. There are no shoulds in your vision for your business, only wants. Shoulds apply that you care about what other people think.
This is about you. So what do you want?
Here are some areas to explore:
- LOCATION: Do you want your coaching business to be location independent? Meaning you can travel the world while you work from your laptop? Or would you rather meet with people in person and build strong connections in your community?
- MONEY: How much money do you want to make monthly in your business?
- TIME: How many hours per week do you want to devote to growing and working in your business?
- SCHEDULE: Do you want to work mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends? Do you want time open in your schedule for going to yoga or the beach or having lunch with your girlfriends?
- CLIENTS: Who do you want to work with?
Getting clear on your vision for your business is the first step to boosting your confidence and moving forward.
Now give yourself permission to make your vision for your business your reality TODAY…not someday!
