the going rate remains the going rate. That doesn't happen for everything.
Primark being a case in point. £3 shirt? Yes please! What's
the worst that can happen? I'll take four, and those sunglasses,
But - with things where the stakes are a bit higher,
lowering prices is more complicated. And I think coaching is seen
in this light. That's not quite logical, because there aren't any
real risks, but certainly, you want a competent coach, and a cheap
one, it seems, is less likely to be as competent as a deliciously
expensive one. Isn't he?
In my surveys and correspondence, people tell me
the biggest obstacle to them having coaching is the price.
I've been playing with this for a while. Over the
last few months I've written back to people who say price is the
problem, and offered them the price they said they wanted to pay,
and you know what? NOT ONE PERSON ACCEPTED THAT OFFER! I was charming,
I promise! But - no one accepted.
Another thing I've been doing is offering half-price
coaching as a prize in a prize draw. Few people enter, and not all
the winners bother to claim their prize.
this all about? Well I think it's human nature
to find respectable reasons to avoid scary things. It's far more
OK to say "I can't afford coaching" than to say "I'm
afraid of coaching [for some reason]". I see this in my practice
a lot - clients say they'll start their new business when they've
got some qualification or when they have bought that shiny new PC
they're saving up for, or after Christmas or some Birthday when
"things will be settled". But that's just the respectable
label. What they're really doing is putting some comforting distance
between themselves and something a little but scary. It's human
Is it you?
If you're currently telling yourself that the price
of coaching is what keeps you away, and that the reason you didn't
enter the prize draws is because "I never win anything",
then here's your chance, and your challenge. Eek! Click the magic
button below, and pay for your first session at half price (£30)
TODAY (July 1st, 2011), and you'll get all your coaching sessions
this summer at half price. It's the same ole me - double-distinction,
at-it-for-7-years, 2-books-author life coach, and I'll be working
just as hard to help you find the success and happiness you're looking
for. But you'll pay half price.
And I can promise you, your fears about coaching
and what lies on the other side of it are almost certainly un-founded
and irrational. It's just your ego trying to defend itself by keeping
you where you are.
So. There is no prize draw you might not win, there
is no catch, my money-back guarantee is still in place, and always
will be. If you're ready for a change for the better, just click
the button, and pay your £30. This
is the big opportunity.
We'll be in touch to set up your first session.
Let me leave you with a testimonial which came
in this week from a client I worked with:
in the hour ... with Chris I found he was able to capture
succinctly the essence of what I was struggling to define
in relation to my values, desires etc. He was able in minutes
to reflect back to me a more accurate and focused picture
of my values/goals/desires than I was able to see for myself.
This was very impressive and very helpful.
more like that here!
