What you told me last time
In my last prize draw, I asked you to complete
And Coaching online survey, which looks at the challenges you
face and your approaches and attitudes to them.
You told me a lot. Life can be lived so many ways;
there are so many challenges and mind sets. But even I was surprised
to see how many of you list MONEY as your main concern. Well, I
have a cunning plan for that. I mean - the prize draw is a great
idea, but... see my very very special offer below.
The survey asked you why your biggest problem was
still there. here's some of what you said:
I can solve it
on my own. OK, but ask yourself this: if you've
been living with the problem for more than 6 months, then what
will change in the next 6 months to fix it that didn't change
in the last 6 months? In all my coaching experience, trying
harder or pulling yourself together is never a solution
- you'll need something new which you don't currently have if
you want lasting change.
Solving it is non-essential.
Strategic things usually take a back seat, because people don't
appreciate the difference between URGENT and IMPORTANT and URGENT
Answering the phone when it rings is urgent,
but it may not be important - they can leave a message or call
back later. Yet - not answering it is unthinkable for most of
us. Hmmm. Losing weight may be important but it's seldom
urgent. It becomes urgent when you have serious health
issues. So fixing the big stuff always seems like a job for tomorrow.
But how many tomorrows are behind you - days that you lived with
the problem - and how many are in front? Tomorrow never comes.
I'm afraid of what
I will see if I look into it. I understand. Fear
is in all of us. But not all of us are ruled by it, This is a
article will help you.
A number of you spoke about your
comfort zone. Yep. Another very real factor, but
then there's this:
And then there was a healthy dose of skepticism
about whether or not coaching really works. No
one is more skeptical about coaching than I was before I looked
into it. I totally get it. And when money is short, the prospect
of losing it for no benefit is even more bitter. That's
why I've made sure that is not a possibility for you! People
don't seem to hear me when I say this. Well, then here's
A side note on skepticism One lady made a very
honest comment which I'm happy to relate and to deal with. She said
something like "If all your
testimonials were true, then why do you keep advertising?".
Fair question; here's my answer. Every single one of those 346
testimonials is completely genuine, and they come from people
who like what I've done for them because I'm good at doing it.
But I coach my clients to independence - essentially
I coach myself out of a job, and that's as it should be in my book.
Each client has maybe 2, 3 or 4 sessions. Some go to 8. Some a little
more, but most don't go beyond 4 because that's all it takes to
put them on the tracks again with the tools they need to move forward
on the their own. I am a good coach but I need to let people know
about me and help them overcome their resistance - none of which
is about how good a coach I am. But there is no contradiction here.
I am a good coach who markets to find clients.
I need one! And here are two that came in last
I just wanted to give you some good feedback.
I've been meaning to do this for ages. Anyway about 3 years
ago I contacted you about what I thought was a business problem
and during the course of our conversations it emerged that the
problem was [something else]. I won't pretend that it's been
easy and I'm still 'getting there' but these days [things are
far better] and I am slowly getting back to being me - something
I can remember telling you I really wanted. So thank you! I
recommend you to a lot of people as I've seen for myself that
you can not only help people see the truth but give them the
courage to act.
I wish I could have included the specifics,
as they bring this to life, but I wanted to ensure this lady's
privacy. I've reproduced this with her blessing, by the way,
as I do all my testimonials.
Here's another - very different style - just as lovely.
Oh my God Chris, you have basically given
me a brilliant formula. I had to read your email several times
in order to understand what you were saying; for it to sink
in; but now I get it, about how .... I've stumbled on GOLD!!!!!!
You can find many more here.
The Very Special
Offer I Mentioned!
Your survey returns told me how money is a big
concern for so many of you. So - until next Friday at 5pm, I'm offering
you a huge discount. If you buy at least one session before 5pm
next Friday UK time, you can have it - and up to four more
- at the same discounted price which is ....
THERE IS NO CATCH. This is probably all the coaching
you'd need to sort things out. You will save £31 on that session
alone, but then you could save another £31 on any others you
buy too. If you have a total of five (and there's no obligation
to), you'd save £160! Your rights are not affected, the money-back
guarantee still applies. There is no risk to you - only a great
price. You can still enter the prize draw - and if you win - you'll
get a refund. Wow.
Remember, you'll need to get your initial consultation
done (the £10 fee is refundable against your full session),
and you can book that here.
This offer is only available to newsletter subscribers,
and is not transferable.
I want to focus more tightly on giving you more
of what you want; and selling you more of what you want. Since you're
all different, you want different things. So I need a different
approach. I always ask you for your thoughts; I get a lot of good
newsletter scores but very few specific comments. You're always
welcome to click REPLY and tell me.
Over the next week or so, I will contact you again
to invite you to tell me what you want, so please look out for that.
