Almost everyone considers giving up coaching at one time or another. Some people tell their coach, while others don’t. Let us help you to recognise when and if it’s time to quit, and when to go deeper into the process.
There’s basically one reason to step up and three perfectly valid times to go.
When the going gets tough, most people want to cut their losses: Some do, but the others succeed.
Don’t quit coaching when the going gets tough; this is a fantastic opportunity to dive right in and get closer to the heart of coaching. Life can be hard and coaching is just a part of life. Tons of terrific things don’t work the first time, the second or even the umpteenth, because setbacks are where the real recovery gems are hidden.
If you allow yourself to be someone who quits when things get tough, you will always feel that success is for others and not for you. You get to CHOOSE whether to succeed.
You WILL succeed if you learn from every setback and adjust your trajectory towards your goal.
Of course there are times when it makes sense to quit.
Valid reasons to quit
1. Can’t eat The money you’d save would be spent on food. No, buying a new outfit doesn’t count!
2. The problem will go away on its own In that case you signed up for tric coaching when you don’t have tric but have chicken pox. 😉
3. The Dream Died
Most tricsters have that weak little (Child) voice deep inside, saying “I don’t even want to be pull free”, but if you REALLY believe that losing those hairs is a reasonable price to pay for emotional control, maybe you don’t want to stop pulling. In a very few cases, people have made an Adult decision to carry on pulling and in that case, quitting coaching is appropriate.
If you realize in Adult that you’re chasing something you don’t want, your coach will agree that quitting is in your best interest.
If you’re pursuing pull freedom that you DO want and not attaining it, then you’re not pursuing it consistently enough. You certainly can build ongoing, thriving pull freedom on the back of our expertise … but you will need to be consistent and persistent.
If you really did consider giving up coaching but none of those 3 reasons applied to you, then what you really need is an injection of coaching enthusiasm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and book a skype, telephone or Facetime consultation with your coach OR ANOTHER coach. If you ask Michelle to keep it quiet, she won’t tell your existing coach that you are considering leaving.
