One of my coaching clients surpassed her revenue goal last month. She started August believing that her $30k goal was impossible, and wanted to avoid thinking about it. But every week, we reviewed that goal, and renewed her commitment to (attempting to) achieve it.
A few times, she said, “There’s no way I can do that.” She didn’t want to keep repeating her commitment to achieve $30,000 in revenue in one month, but I reminded her that her commitment was not to achieve this goal. Her commitment was to attempt to achieve her goal.
By the end of the month, she surpassed her goal by more than $15k, earning a total of $45,000 for the month. Now, she’s set a revenue goal double the size of last month’s goal. Every week, we talk about that goal during her coaching call.
This is the biggest benefit to having a business coach — someone else keeps you accountable to goals that seem outlandish, until you attain them. Many of my clients are entrepreneurs looking to grow their business, but I am also currently working with corporate leaders preparing for big presentations, and managers who want to make their team meetings more engaging and interactive.
