I have stacks of self development books, some paper and some ebooks, and very few that are finished. Sometimes I judge myself for reading only a few chapters, or a few lines or even just the cover.
And then I pause... is it more important to receive ONE juicy ah-ha or to finish reading the book? Is it okay that I sample the buffet and get a full plate only when it's really really good?
So I have stacks of books that I have tasted, tiny morsels of deliciousness, like squares of dark chocolate melting on my tongue. And I have a smaller pile... ones that I have devoured, page by page, word by word until I lean back feeling as if I will explode with fullness.
Each have nourished me in their own way, waiting there for seconds when the craving hits....
I see a dis-connect... coaches who complain about not having enough business who are not investing in their own coach. How can you possibly convince others to step up to the plate to pay YOU if you are not willing to step up to the plate yourself? I don't mean sign up for more classes - I mean hiring a COACH.
This is a non-negotiable. You have to be on the receiving end of coaching to be a powerful coach yourself.
