The other day, I found myself thinking about my approach to coaching. I started comparing what I do today to what I used to do a few years ago.
The way I do things has changed dramatically over the last few years.
When I first started, I used to think I’d failed if I didn’t get all my clients to breakthrough right now!
If there wasn’t immediate progress, I thought I wasn’t doing my job.
And that made me push too hard. It made me try to force breakthroughs in people who weren’t ready for them yet.
I had no idea. Talk about being ignorant.
In the years since, I’ve come to a realisation.
Everyone works to their own timeline.
That means we’ll all blossom at our own pace.
Some of you may start seeing immediate results with TJM. The weight falls off and everything goes great from the start.
Others may not notice anything at first. It takes a little bit longer for whatever reason. Maybe you have to work a little harder to change your mindset. Maybe you need to set up a lot more of the little things to get yourself ready.
It doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you keep making that forward progress. You don’t need to make the breakthrough right now.
You just need to keep working towards it at your own pace.
You just can’t force it like I used to try and do. Eventually, the penny’s going to drop. It might be today. It might be next week.
It might even be a year from now.
But it will happen when you’re ready for it to happen.
One day, you’ll wake up and you’ve got it.
The magic’s inside you. I’m just the catalyst that’s trying to bring it out of you.
So I want you to stop worrying so much about the results. Stop thinking that you must have failed if you haven’t had the breakthrough yet.
It will come in its own time. Just keep on putting in the work and you will reap the rewards.
I believe in you.
