THE TRUTH BEHIND... SUCCESSFUL COACHING
Hey Fit Fam! At the end of 2016, I did a video series sharing stories from personal journey into becoming a Beachbody Coach, along with some insight that would help lead Coaches to success in 2017. I feel that information is still really important, so I wanted to share a few things here to make sure everyone has access to it any time they need a reminder!
In my first video I talked about how my job as a Coach isn’t to motivate you… it’s to CHALLENGE YOU! My job is to truly challenge you to dig deep, to really understand what it’s going to take for you to make that lifestyle shift you want so badly.
No matter what your day job is – you could be a hair stylist, a fitness instructor, a business owner, a nail tech, or even a stay-at-home momma - finding success in your personal fitness goals and as a Beachbody Coach takes work! It’s a CHALLENGE! But just remember that I will be always be here to push you towards your goals!
Are you looking to achieve more coaching success this year? Well then there are three things YOU MUST DO!
1. WALK THE WALK
(EVEN WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING)
The phrase, “Do the right thing,” is really just about one word: INTEGRITY.
Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. And when you take integrity and mix it with a mentality that is all about “WE / US / THEM” - putting others over yourself - then you will establish a strong sense of trust with your entire team.
Having integrity is so important, whether that’s your business, your relationship or marriage, your family - it’s important with EVERYTHING you do!
For me, I have to constantly keep pushing and putting in the work, even when no is watching. This means doing my workouts even when no one else is watching, drinking my Shakeology even though no one would know if I skipped, checking in on my Challengers and Coaches on a regularly instead of waiting for them coming to me…
All of these tasks (and there’s so many more) require me to SHOW UP even though no one may ever see the work - but that’s how you build trust with your team!
So what are you doing when no one is watching? Are you showing up?!
2. FIND THE QUALITY NO MATTER THE QUANTITY
This next focus is short and simple, but super important to remember.
It’s easy in life (both personal and professional) for us to believe that SUCCESS is all about QUANTITY. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the questions like, “How many new clients did I get last week?”, or “How much time do I have off from work this month?”
But when you start thinking about working and living life with INTEGRITY, remember this: It’s not about quantity, but the QUALITY.
Every person’s life is unique, so I can’t tell you what this HAS TO look like in your life…but I am telling you that focusing on the quality of your time and interactions with the people in your life is CRUCIAL to your happiness and success as a Coach.
If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times… FIND THE QUALITY NO MATTER THE QUANTITY!
3. FOCUS ON SERVING, LOVING, AND TRANSFORMING LIVES
The biggest change in my Beachbody career was shifting my focus to CARING.
Now, I don’t mean for you to start caring about things that are only important to you! What you care about most can’t be your rank in the company, or the raise you’ll get this month, or the amount of money you bring in as a Coach each year…
Now that you are focused on living and working with INTEGRITY and QUALITY, the last element you must add to the mix is CARING.
You must care more about the lives of your team members. Start caring about everything THEY do, and not what they can do for you. It’s got to be about the people you are SERVING - your team! If you start to focus on really caring about THEM, then I promise you that everything else will fall into place.
THE WRAP UP
So basically, 2017 is going to be an awesome year for you and your team when you shift your focus from ME to WE! Make sure you are celebrating your team, focusing on what they are experiencing, and success will surely come.
Comment below and let me know what you are doing with your team this year to find success!
With lots of love,
