Coaching closes the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.
You are the master and creator of your own destiny. You may already have a clear picture of what you want in life, or you may be clueless. It doesn’t matter where you start. In fact, it is probably better if you are clueless so that you don’t limit your options unnecessarily. You may be wondering if coaching will work for you. Try it and see. In one sense, nobody needs a coach; it is a fabulous luxury. But, like an Olympic athlete, if you seek to perform and be your absolute best, you’ll want the edge coaching provides.
Coaching works for anyone who is willing to take these actions. There is work to do, but the work isn’t focused on striving to reach your goals. Rather, you will focus on being the best person you can possibly be today. This coaching program will help you realize your unique talents and gifts and then maximize them to achieve the success you want. Working on your own life is the most rewarding thing you can do. The good news is that the coaching process builds a natural momentum so you won’t have to keep motivating yourself. Once you start in one area of your life, you will be drawn to work on another. Once you’ve experienced attracting what you want, you will never want to go back to your old ways of achieving success.
This is an action-oriented program, so you will want to find a special notebook or three-ring binder to keep your notes in.
Before going any further take the “How Coachable Are You?” test to see if you are ready to begin coaching.
How to Use Coach Yourself to Success
This podcast is divided into ten parts that build on each other in a natural progression. Each part contains ten tips that you don’t necessarily have to do in order. However, I am giving out 3 months subscription because you should take time to listen, digest & implement each tip of each part. And yes you can come back to listen to any tips at any time during these 3 months.
In Part 1 you will learn to increase your natural power by getting rid of the major energy drains in your life and putting in some positive energy boosters.
In Part 2 you will learn to make some space for the new things you want in your life. Excess “stuff” reduces your ability to attract success. Nature abhors a vac- uum—back to the laws of physics again!—so if you want something new in your life, you have to create the space for it.
Part III addresses money. Why work for money when you can learn to make money work for you? This is where you will begin to tell the truth about money, plug the money drains in your life, and get on the path toward financial independence so that within ten to twenty years you won’t have to work for a living. Most people get by on just enough money. If you want to be effortlessly successful you need more than enough money.
In Part IV, I share some secrets of cre- ating time. You will learn to focus on what is truly important and elim- inate the chronic time wasters that devour our lives before we know it. This creates a sense of balance and control in your life.
In Part V you will learn how to develop a supportive network of friends, colleagues, and mentors. It takes time to develop and maintain strong relationships, and many of us are so busy that we don’t take the time to do so. Yet successful people readily acknowledge they couldn’t have reached their goals without the help of their personal network. You will also identify and find ways to satisfy emotional needs that may have been unconsciously driving your behavior and choice of friends.
In Part VI you will discover what really turns you on in life and learn how to make the smooth transition to doing exactly that without financial risk. When you are doing work you love, you begin to attract powerful and interesting people who never would have looked twice at you when you were miserable and complaining about your job every day. People who are excited about their work are few and far between, so by that fact alone you will stand out from the crowd and attract even more opportunities.
In Part VII you will learn how to become exceptionally efficient, productive, and effective. You will learn how to get unstuck when you are in a rut and how to blast through your goals and achieve them in record time—and then eliminate goals altogether. You will learn to work smarter and to have more fun in the process, whether your goals are professional or personal.
In Part VIII you will learn the art of listening profoundly, so profoundly that you will actually bring things out of people that they themselves weren’t aware of. Successful people usually have one key trait in common: they have learned how to communicate with power, grace, and style. Anyone can learn to do this. The simple tips here show you how to speak so that people not only listen to you but are also motivated to take action. Here you learn the secrets of getting people to do what you want without manipulating them.
By Part IX you will be ready to start taking care of your number one asset: YOU. Here you will learn how to eliminate unnecessary stress, banish burnout, and surround yourself with luxury. Now is the time to pamper yourself and get your body in great shape. The payoff—a rejuvenated and energetic you! Good things will be landing in your lap on a fairly consistent basis. Now you need to learn how to have it this good. Most people think they don’t deserve to have such an awesome life and end up sabotaging themselves in one way or another. But do not fear; this is curable. And one of the best ways to expand your willingness to have a good life is to start taking extremely good care of yourself.
In Part X you will strengthen the key characteristics of success. This part is not about doing things; it is about a way of being. It goes beyond having extra time and money or having a gorgeous house or body. We all know people who look successful on the outside but aren’t much fun to be around. This is because success goes beyond the trappings.
Part X is about being the kind of person who naturally attracts success. In one sense this is the most important step of all, but it is difficult to maintain your success if you don’t have the other parts in place. At this point, you will find that you may just have a notion, a thought about what you want and boom! It appears. I know this sounds like magic, but it isn’t; you have laid the groundwork for this success. You will have so much energy and vitality that your thoughts will be more powerful. And why shouldn’t they be? You have eliminated the distractions in your life and have set up your environment to give you energy. You will be incredibly magnetic at this point.
Coaching works for anyone who is willing to take these actions. There is work to do, but the work isn’t focused on striving to reach your goals. Rather, you will focus on being the best person you can possibly be today.

A Final Word of Caution
Most of the ideas in this podcast are so simple that you may think you have done them just by listening to them; this is a big mistake. Listening and taking action are two totally different things. If only it were true that listening to an idea were sufficient—we would all be perfect by now. So pick a tip from Part I that appeals to you and then do it.
Focus on a few tips a week. Some can be done immediately while others may take quite a bit of time to complete. For example, while you may be able to sew on a button in two minutes, it might take you a year to save six months' living expenses. Don’t worry about how much time it will take to reach the end result. The important thing is to set up the structures for the fulfillment of your goals and dreams.
If you can afford to hire a coach to support you in this process, great. If you can’t hire a coach, find a partner or buddy who will do it with you and call each other once a week to check-in. Of course, you can do it by yourself, but it is much easier and more fun to do it with somebody else.
While it is perfectly okay to jump around the tips and do whatever you most feel like, if you find you are struggling in one area or an idea seems impossible or far-fetched, it may be that you need to take care of something from an earlier part first. For example, it is hard to hire a personal trainer if you are still in debt. And it may seem ridiculous or impossible to go for financial independence when you are still figuring out how to employ a full-time maid.
However, financial independence will sound like a large but achievable project once you have paid off your debts and have six months living expenses socked away. It is easiest if you follow the process as outlined, but go ahead and do what you want.
Above all, have fun and enjoy the process!
