What can you do if you want a coach badly but can’t afford one?
The commercial says, “You’re Worth It.” However, that advertising phrase is misleading. It implies that you are worth going into debt over something you want very badly. Before you extend yourself to an uncomfortable financial situation, rework the phrase in your mind.
“You’re Worth It” is not an excuse to overspend. You are worth the discomfort of sacrificing your immediate desires when doing so will create a better future for you. You are worth the effort it takes to create a financially peaceful, debt-free life. You are worth the investment in time it will take to find workable solutions to your financial problem!
So, if you feel limited by finances, your first step is to research methods you can use to improve your financial situation. Your second step is to formulate your own financial plan. Your third step is to carry out the plan you create. As you work your plan, new opportunities and ideas will come to you simply because you are working your plan!
In a nutshell, you are worth it. You are worthy of a peaceful, happy life; but, you have to create it, not buy it. Do not overextend your finances to hire any coach.
How Expensive is Life Coaching?
Coaches try to price their services similarly to other coaches. Coaches offer many levels of service and varying types of coach involvement for your money. You really must poke around on the web to find a coach that meets your needs. Bluelady Muse offers life coaching, too.
Your money gives you power to hire and fire. You can’t do that with your friends, you know. Frankly, money substitutes for emotional obligation.
Do you pay your plumber for his insight into your personal life? No, you pay him to fix your plumbing. If he doesn’t fix your plumbing, you choose another plumber. The power of your money ensures that your plumber will do everything in his power to fix your dilemma.
It may sound crude, but the same principle applies to life coaching. You pay a coach to help you find ways to fix your dilemmas. If your coach fails, you take your money elsewhere. Period. That’s not to say that your coach’s only interest is your money. If she were, there are much simpler ways to go about earning it. In addition, your coach’s relationship with you is not based on your ability to pay.
If paying for coaching is a problem, tell your coach. Perhaps you can barter, work out a payment plan, or find some other creative solution to help you get the help you want.
Money is the equalizer in a coaching relationship – it ensures that you get what you need from your coach without having to worry about her personal needs or feelings in return.
