How are you feeling as a health coach right now?
Maybe you’re at a place right now in your business where you feel like you have to ‘have everything perfect’ before you can help others. Maybe you feel like you have to be a certain size or you have to have everything figured out for yourself first. Nothing could be further from the truth!
I’m reading a great book called “The Prosperous Coach” by Steve Chandler and Rich Litvin. I came across this quote in the book that I loved so I wanted to share it with you.
“Don’t wait for one-hundred percent readiness. It will never come. When you are eighty percent ready, go for it. Run straight at it. Get exposed. Risk messing up.”
I’m learning that it’s okay to not be 100% ready before I dive in. I find that this is usually where I grow the most, learn the most, and discover new opportunities.
Is there something you’re putting off doing because you don’t feel 100% ready? What if you NEVER feel 100% ready? What will the world miss out on? Your 80% could change someone’s life.
Your clients don’t expect you to be perfect – they want someone that’s real, who understands their struggles without judgment. In fact, you will be so much more relatable to people when they see that you’re down to earth and not up on some pedestal where they feel self conscious.
Perfection doesn’t exist – mistakes are how we learn and improve. Take risks, be brave and dive in! Before you know it, you’ll be on your way.
Make a plan this week for what steps you can take that will move you closer to your goals – perfect or not!
I’m rooting for you! What ONE thing can you do this week?
