The answer is simple. No one.
But if you’re interested, I invite you to read about my own experience with powerful coaches. So here’s the deal…
Coaching transformed my life. Like…for real….let me repeat it…coaching transformed my life!!!
In my past, I was a much dimmer, less badass version of myself. Sure my light was shining. Many would say I’d been extremely successful – starting a non-profit in a community already filled with non-profits and tough competition for funding. Many would say I didn’t need a coach, that I already knew how to be successful. I initially resisted it too, but I knew deep down that I continued to hold myself back – to dim my light. I knew I had something even bigger inside of me that was yearning to be expressed.
I was the Kim who allowed myself to feel guilty for outshining anyone else, who lived to please (not genuinely serve) others, who believed in a world of scarcity, who got involved in relationships that did not serve me (ha! way too many of those!), who held myself back because of fear and because I didn’t really know what it meant to truly love myself. I was the Kim who lived from my head and not my heart.
Then I stumbled upon the work of my first coach. Brian Johnson doesn’t know he was my first coach, but he was and in some ways still is. Brian’s work kicked my evolution into a higher gear. It opened up the world of personal development for me in a way no one else had. I devoured his materials, learning how to take better care of myself and become more productive. I learned I had a purpose and that my purpose was to serve and make our world a better place.
Through Brian’s materials, I came upon the work of Steve Chandler, a rockstar in the coaching world. An email exchange with Steve’s publisher, Maurice Bassett, led to my work with Arminda Lindsay, my second coach. (Important note…unlike Brian Johnson, Arminda knows she’s my coach!) With the guidance of another badass coach, Mindie Kniss, I started my own coaching and professional speaking business as I continue to evolve and impact the world in more direct ways. I cannot imagine my life now without a powerful coach to support me in my growth and on-going adventures.
No one needs coaching but everyone can benefit from a powerful coach. Although everyone (yes that means YOU too!) can benefit, many are not ready for a coach. If you are not open to true transformation, if you are not open to having your limiting beliefs challenged, if you are not open to getting to the root of your fears, if you are not 100% committed to this life-changing journey, I recommend you don’t waste your time, money or the time of your coach.
Coaching is an investment in yourself. Although each one of us naturally evolves as a result of our unique circumstances and life experiences, the help of the right coach, allows us to remove the blocks to our evolution in certain areas and to fast-track our evolution in others. With a powerful coach, the return on your monetary investment cannot even be measured – it’s a priceless gift you give yourself.
The right coach opens up your world; the right coach guides you in your own transformation; the right coach inspires you to become your best self each and every day, the right coach loves, serves and believes in you fiercely, most especially in the moments when you don’t believe in yourself, the right coach supports you in becoming the person you know you’re capable of becoming; the right coach guides you to the dream you thought was impossible.
Back to my original question… who needs a coach? If you’re reading this page, I’m guessing you may already have your own answer to that question. 😉
