Professional “Change” Coach
This is the question people ask all the time…’HOW’?
Making a change IS easy – if you know how, right!
If you don’t know how then it becomes next to impossible doesn’t it. Change is possible, take heart in knowing this and know that despite past efforts, the present and the future are the only relevant time frames that matter.
So before anything else, let me offer you some guidance on the ‘HOW’ straight away …
To make any change, and have that change last through time, you will need to go through some very specific steps …
First step is to decide what the change is that you must make.
Get crystal clear on defining that change – that outcome, in as much details as you can. This must be written down. Clarify the change that needs to take place, what ever that is.
Second step is define where you currently are in this context.
Again be very specific and again this must be written down. Try to measure where you are in this context compared to good and bad, if good was 10 and bad was 0 where are you right now?
Third step is realise / comprehend / appreciate this gap between the present and that future and begin to notice this distance Consciously. Begin to embrace it, as opposed to see it in a negative. Don’t be Pollyanna and just think positive – ascertain to the best of your ability where you are, be realistic and be honest with your self. Don’t see it worse or better than it is, just ‘notice’ this place you are in from an empowered state.
Fourth step – take affirmative Action. This is where most people will falter. This is where your level of commitment versus just ‘interest’ will serve you / or not! You must have a commitment to change, you must be serious about the change, without this urgency you will not find the motivation – medium to long term – you will need. Only being interested will provide nothing more than a short term plaster over a wound so to speak, it will break as soon as an obstacle comes your way or you lose interest. Commitment and seriousness will however superseded any obstacle.
Other ingredients needed for Successful change include your motivation and commitment level ( how much Pain and / or how much Pleasure is associated to making the change ) and the strategy ( specific steps taken in sequential order ) you implement to make the change.
If you don’t know what it is you want. If you don’t know where you are in this context now. If you don’t know why you are making the change. If you don’t have a plan in place for its attainment. If you don’t take action etc… etc… then the ‘HOW‘ will evade you and you will be stuck.
This is where you may need assistance…get help from someone who has the answers you are looking for…someone who can navigate the course between the present and the future you desire in a syntactical, strategic and Successful way.
A Life Coach is one such person who may be able to help you, I say ‘may’ because the word help is vague and non-descriptive. I imagine you would favour someone who would deliver the change you seek, not just ‘try’ to.
With that in mind … I work in the Life Coaching profession – but specifically I work within a niche area. I differentiate myself from most Life Coaches, I am what’s called a Life Changing Coach …
What does that mean?
It simply means – I Coach* people until Change actually happens. After all, the operative word in the title is the word changing. I don’t ‘try’ to help people or offer ‘hope and empty promises’. No.
My service is simply and objectively – you come to me for a change, I Coach you until Change happens. Thus I differentiate myself from just being a regular Life Coach.
Hence, I am a Life changing Coach and I put that in to my title purposely so people understand this distinction, and thus, what I do and what, to expect from me.
In addition, my work* is Successful Outcome Oriented Only, meaning, if you hire me to Coach you and I do not deliver the result you are seeking – then you don’t pay.
Would you pay someone – even if they failed to deliver something?
Some people say yes some say no, it all depends on the context of course. In Life Coaching the accepted norm is to hire someone to help you achieve a specific outcome / change, and on the premise that they are unable to deliver, you still pay?!
Does that sound like a fair deal to you? Coach gets paid whether they Succeed or Fail, and you only benefit if they Succeed! In fact, you lose if they Fail because your time, money and Emotion have all been wasted!
To me that is a no brainer. The answer is this is an unfair situation to the client. Period. I believe that a situation should be a win win or if it has to be, a lose lose. Not mixed.
So I offer as part of my options to the client the deal that says I deliver or you don’t get charged. So again, I have tried to move myself away from the traditional Life Coaching frame by Coaching yes, but, getting paid only if I produce the result the client is after. It has brought me a large amount of attention over the years and thus business. This for me is validation that this is what people are after – actual change / the result.
Not the promise or hope or guarantee or reputation (only) or testimonial or even a qualification for that matter. They seek the CHANGE in the circumstance they are in. Delivering that change is all people care about from my own experience.
I hope not to come across as egotistical or arrogant because I am neither. I am simply being honest direct and open. Nor am I like a lot of Life Coaches who talk their talk, but don’t walk their walk.
I Confidently claim that I walk my talk, I don’t know any other way. I am not a good sales person, never was. I was only ever good at being congruent from very early on. In other words I could never fake something. My Life as a whole is an example of my journey where I had to walk my talk in order to create real results in my life, not just talk about them and pretend.
I advertise only very minimally in any form online or offline, yet a minimum 95% of my clients come instead from word of mouth or live event attendance. I believe that speaks for itself.
People want someone they can trust, is real and can deliver.
I feel confident in my ability to help people because I have a vast coaching experience, I have worked in the service industry as a whole for over 20 years, Coaching on 5 different Continents and with thousands of people across a multitude of contexts so I have a skill set most other Coaches haven’t had the time or opportunity to generate yet.
So to reiterate – ‘How do you change your Life’?
Decide to! don’t wish or hope or try, make the commitment to change. The word decision comes from incision in Latin. Incision means to cut, so decision ( a real one ) means to cut of from other – in this case you have decided ( not hoped or tried ) and there is NO OTHER OPTION YOU WILL CONSIDER. Period.
Get yourself inspired ( pleasure ) to make the change, if you can’t, focus on how the problem is making you despair, find desperation ( pain ) from the situation, either way you MUST be Motivated!
Get a plan, strategise what when how if who or, etc… develop a step by step action taking procedure from A through to Z. Make the chunks small, inch by inch it’s a cinch – yard by yard will be hard!
Then go out and take action – I REPEAT – go OUT and TAKE action. The change you want will NEVER EVER happen if you don’t implement this step.
So ‘HOW‘ do you do all this!?
There are many vehicles, one option is to use the services of a competent Life Coach who will only take your money if they are able to produce the result you want. Couldn’t be any fairer than that. The other options include ‘hoping’, ‘waiting’, ‘wishing’, hire someone and pay them to only ‘attempt’ to create the result, not to actually produce the result, trial and error, waiting for a lucky break or self-education including reading books and attending seminars etc…
