If you would like to learn how to become a motivational coach quickly, these life coach tips are the fastest way. All master coaches use these life coach tips.
You’ll need to do these 4 things:
- Set a clear GOAL: This first step is very important. The more clear you are on the exact specifics of your goal and the reasons why you want to achieve this goal, the more desire and motivation you will have to achieve it. Make your goal measurable and actionable. For example, you can set a goal to become a motivational coach who powerfully impacts the lives of 30 clients per month. Now that you’ve set your specific goal, associate massive pleasure to achieving the goal and extreme pain for not achieving your goal.,
- Step 2 is to take MASSIVE action: Just get started, even if you don’t know everything you will need to do. For example, you may decide to offer free sessions as a path to becoming a motivational coach. It doesn’t matter how much knowledge you have, if you don’t take action nothing will happen. Massive action with even a little knowledge is priceless.
- Step 3 is to track and monitor your RESULTS: Get feedback from clients about what’s working and what’s not.
- Last but not least, revise your PLAN: This is the most crucial aspect. Take the feedback you received in step 3 and revise your plan. Now rinse and repeat.
Most of your clients are not focused on results. Most people are just trying to avoid pain or get a pat on the back. With this thinking, they are focused on activity, not results. There is a big difference.
To change your clients thinking in this area, teach them to use a results template. Have your client list the results they want across the top of a clean sheet of paper. Next, below each result, have them write the actions they need to take to achieve the desired result.
Now help them identify the different roles they play when they are working on the associated result. Entrepreneurs often wear many different hats in their businesses. Below each role, have your client write the feelings they will have when they are working on the actions for this task. The reason for this step is to allow them to foster a greater sense of purpose.
A motivational coach who can help their clients focus on the purpose of their results will know how to motivate their clients at the highest level.
This approach is very different from a rah rah motivational retreat, but it can be just as powerful and more sustainable.
