I have struggled with my belief in myself for a really long time. I am struggling with self doubt as we speak. Im in the middle of a identity crisis. I am unemployed and turning 30 this year. Im looking at my life and which direction I would like to go. Its a struggle… So my belief system is being shaken up a little here. But I have coaching… and coaching can offer ALOT.
So Ive asked myself these questions. What do I want to create? What do I want for myself and my family? What do I really want to do with the time I have allotted? What would I like to be able to do that I cant do now? What do I want my legacy to look like?
All these questions stir emotion in me, as they should! Im working on answering them one by one and I suggest you do that same, as most people don’t spend time reflecting on questions like these. We always look at the short term. What do I want to create? Well, I want to create a career for myself that I don’t have to ask for time off. That I don’t have to worry about scheduling apts. That I don’t have to miss events with family or friends due to work. I want to create a life where I can be FREE to travel. Free financially. I want to be in control of my income. I want my family to have everything they need with no more worry about money. I want to be able to retire my husband from his yachting career. I want to be able to buy a home for my family and rescue more animals. I want to give back to my community, open an animal rescue, I want to be able to donate money to causes that mean something to me. I want to be able to help lower income families and children. All these things are things that I CAN’T do right now but this is what I want my legacy to look like. I want to be someone who gave a lot to others and worked very hard to be financially stable and free in her own life. These visions make me want to cry! Even now with my faith wavering and fear has been more prominent, these visions are very moving to me.
I think most of us want to do more than just take care of ourselves most of us want to give to others. Thats why I truly believe that this coaching business is a business thats for everyone… its fulfills all human basic emotional needs.
- Safety Needs
- Love and Belonging Needs
- Esteem Needs
How you might ask? Well lets look at this and get creative. Beachbody coaching is a business that requires you to share you journey in order to help others see themselves in you and want to be apart of the journey as well. Coaching is a business of making connections and adding value to someone’s life through an incredible fitness program, nutrition plan, and support in a group environment. So lets begin with safety needs, the needs of security. This business has no limit to what you can earn full time. The beauty in this company is that is all up to you and the amount of work you want to put into it. Many people live securely on the income that coaching provides. Yes it takes work but there is NOTHING special about those people. You can be a full time 6 figure earning coach as well! And so can I!
We then move on to the need for love and belonging where we seek to connect with other people. Thats what this business is all about! CONNECTION! We seek to help others and connect with them on a deeper level in order to get them the results they need through fitness and nutrition. This is my absolute favorite part! Making that real connection with people and becoming their friend and mentor.
Esteem needs come next! This is all about boosting self-esteem, confidence, achievement, and also gaining the respect of others. When you commit to a program and get results it boosts confidence and value in yourself. You are then able to share with others with great confidence in your achievements and show them that they can do this as well! This adds value to your life and others. People respect the process. Respect you as a person with experience and success!
Finally, at the top of the pyramid is the need for self-actualization. Here we typically strive for self-improvement in the form of creativity and making ourselves and the world a better place. This is in essence all about personal growth and our contribution to the world. This is the substance of being a coach. My posts on Facebook or in my blog allow me to be creative and express myself and my story. These stories reach and inspire other people along the way, creating a ripple effect in the world. Coaching has taught me so much about personal growth and development. It lead me to my healer and constantly forces me to better myself. So that I can be a better person in my own life and for others.
Coaching has shown me this—It feels good, it’s good for you, it’s good for others, and it certainly serves the greater good of all concerned. Life is about contributing to the world. It’s about giving. Is this easy? no. But it is worth it. Nothing worth it ever comes easy. It will force you to develop as person inside and out. So think deeply and purposefully on the questions I asked. This could be for you and I would be doing the world an injustice if I wasn’t sharing about this opportunity.
