How to Become a Business Coach

Thinking vs. Doing and the Secret of Business Coaching Success

By on September 1, 2018

Contemplation can birth incredible ideas and deep insights into business success.  However, when it comes to thinking vs. doing, MOTION defeats contemplation every day of the week and twice on Friday nights.

Want success as a coach? Turn a ‘should’ for your coaching company into a ‘MUST’ and you will be on your way… at the very least you won’t ‘should’ yourself out of business.

Leadership can be defined as turning vision into reality. Coaches who are able to do this have something very powerful–an “entrepreneurial mindset.”  Frankly, a “coaching mindset” is far more passive.

Passive coaches develop ideas as quickly and easily as the successful ones. But unfortunately, they don’t act. They’re dreamers developing a mile-long list of ‘shoulds’ and remain at a standstill.

So what should you do?

Pick up the darn phone and call someone.

If your mind has already gone to “I can’t and won’t cold call…” (Inferring you’re too good for it…)  you’re destined for failure. Sorry.

Of course, I’m not talking about cold calling when I say “pick up the darn phone”… it’s just where some people’s minds will automatically go. Frankly, they’re focused on what they don’t want…and therefore get it. I’m talking about picking up the phone to create some action for yourself and your business.

BTW… and just because I can’t help myself… I categorically GUARANTEE Tony Robbins has made a “cold call” over the past 90 days. He didn’t see it as a “cold call.” He wanted and had a reason to call someone… so he did.

I’ve made more “cold calls” than you could count over the years, and even made a couple over the past three months. And believe me, at this stage I’m not looking for more calls. It’s just in my DNA to make things happen. In many cases, I’m calling a potential joint venture partner. In other cases, I may be calling to help someone who is wasting money or making silly mistakes.

If you’re under the grand illusion you can be a great coach while not learning how to act, you’ll spend your life “sitting on the bench” watching others play the game. They’ll create riches and freedom–while you struggle, get frustrated, and continue to “plan.”

That’s the difference between thinking vs. doing. That’s the difference between struggling and success.
