When a coach prospects for clients, what is his expectation? How little a success does a prospect have to have acheived before a good coach will work with them? These are the questions I asked of a coach who recently contacted me. Perhaps you would have similar questions and concerns and my story will help you. Do you want to have success in business? Do you want to have a coach who will give you the support and empower your abundance?
Are your circumstances difficult presently? Do you feel like you don’t know if I have what it takes to have business success? Perhaps you still feel compelled to keep going online. Perhaps in time, with the accumulation of skill and staying power, you will make the money you desire.
Young and without skill and “sales” training, I won people’s affection by sheer enthusiasm. Naive, and with poor leadership, I “endured” rather than “grew” as a leader. In my journey, what I have had to overcome has made me stronger and developed me in many ways.
As a married woman, I felt very strong, confident and safe. I tolerated my differences with my former spouse. I don’t like going back over all the details of the past, as they seem fuzzy now and my words may no longer be accurate.
I feel as though I sacrificed my relationship with my girls so that they could maintain a good relationship with their dad, one I did not have with my own, and one I knew was necessary for their stability in good male female bonding.
In my own college experience at a young, on my own 17 yr old, I studied graphic design and have always considered myself the “artist” type. I trained for and briefly taught Montessori in Florida. Along with other untraditional ideas, I delivered my children at a birth center, homeschooled my children all the way thru there school years, taught art classes in a coop for 5 yrs. and finished up my teaching there 1 week ago.
I also, in the past few days signed my divorce papers after 4 yrs. of painful grieving, brokenness and present rebuilding process. Feeling a deep need to get to the root of my pain, and so I could achieve a sense of freedom and abundance, a friend introduced me to a group that did “treasure hunt”, a concept of praise, worship, preparation and prophetic evangelism which manifested in street ministry. Praying for others who were in deep need of hope, healing and encouragement, I decided to take more classes to help me further my knowledge so I could pray on a team at a church if I so chose. Taking the 30 wk class using the book ” Transformation of the Inner Man”, by John and Paula Sanford, I would now have the authority to pray on a team at church and also feel confident in other arenas..
Seeking truth has always been my passion and I seem to have failed forward over and over. In the past 8 yrs. I have attended Prophetic conferences, training classes, prayer and worships schools, home churches, AA mentoring sessions, and read probably 50 books on everything from overcoming rejection to the longings of the human heart.
Because of my intimacy with God, I am at a level of relationship where I know many of His ways better than those around me. It has been painful getting here. I don’t claim to have done this the right way. It has been “a ” way and I don’t wish it upon anyone. I am concerned that others may not be able to endure the process I went thru to arrive where I am now.
So I am not religious.
I sense that I provide a bridge for those who are disconnected from their true value. I provide encouragement and direction because I have experienced much of the woundedness that is common to many who wish to have success in life but can’t find the open door. I apologize for not using practical terms here. I have certain style vocabulary in areas of the spirit of man and still feel a lack in the practical side of life.
My journey has been more spiritually attuned which concerns me in my ability to start a new business and help others succeed in a practical way.
I have sat in my room for hours at a time, seeking God in the Word. I have been given revelation knowledge via Holy Spirit with insight from the Living Word, the Bible. God’s Word is the starting point for revelation and the Holy Spirit is there when the Word is not available. I do have many scriptures memorized.
As I am sitting here writing, I wonder if anyone really cares and would identify with this. You see, this is part of the battle I experience. Am I of value to others? Does what I have to say really matter? Does my lack of business savvy make me ineligible for success as an entrepreneur?
Having experienced life so far, I am no longer demanding. I don’t want to fight. I want to love and I don’t know whether I have what it takes to own a business and lead others in it. So this is where a coach comes in. How long will it take for me to have success financially, which is what a business can do for me? What kind of business is a good fit? I am familiar with MLM’s and have been approached by several great people who are in them. Ray Higdon, Amanda Marie, Tabitha Ricketts, Adam Whiting, Rick Herbst, Yo Le, Armon Anderson, and many others.
Because of my financial desperateness which I feel I may have brought on by my denial and inability to fight against, after 3 1/2 yrs, I filed for food stamps. I have a loose front tooth which requires over 2k to repair. I have a vehicle that is in need of more repair before it can be inspected again for the 3rd time, and little money. I have a ccd co. hounding me for the $ I borrowed for my business venture. Unfortunately, my former spouse over the four years continued to lower my allowance, and i have been reduced to $25. a week. He does pay the mortgage on my lovely home but this has severely changed my lifestyle.
I just took a job at an upscale hotel in guest services, and I have a 23 yr old controlling, power hungry woman assistant manager who has an agenda and tests me continually. She wrote me up after 2 weeks training, for making a mistake. I am patient but I was humiliated by this and wonder if this is common in businesses. I am not accustomed to being around people like her as i have steered clear of negativity because of the drain. My alimony gives me nothing until my house is sold. All of this adds to the strain and overcoming it is a challenge.
My concern is that I may never have financial success which I need to achieve to live as well as I’d like. I am just in need of a step by step approach from where I am presently to where I want to be, which is free from the past, free from negative employers, and free to be accepted and valued as a leader who also loves others and wants them to succeed.
No matter where we are in life, in business, we all need to have experienced business owners who will mentor and train us towards higher success. Robert Kiyosaki, the coach who contacted me, coaches many others over the years, including Susan Sly, who I recently was introduced to. Jeffery Combs is a well known business coach who has been in the business since the 80′s. Many who have spoken at No Excuses Conference, have been coached by Jeffery. He does charge a fee but is worth every penny. Business success begins with having the right mindset, coaches and team.
