Fast forward to after those 4 years and I have had enough! (as you can imagine).
Something had to give and I finally did (and not just to myself).
I reconnected with ICG Masters Academy on 5th Feb 2014 and allowed myself 90 days to the 5th of the 5th to get my first paying client or I would forget about it all and go get any old job…. For me to do that I had a very humbling moment of realising that I had been making it all about me and selfishly acting like others didn’t have the same challenges I was going through (something to laugh at now). I decided to bury my egomaniacal self and do two things. 1. Ask for Help 2. Focus on others and only focus on self when I’m alone.
The result was creating huge amounts of connection and doing everything I could to serve. I saw myself as pretty good at knowing how NOT to do it from those 4 years and i started with sharing that. Buddy/Accountability Calls, Be a client to other coaches (I get growth out of that one too), give advice, Refer clients and coaches to each other. Anything that I had to give, I gave it without reserve! It’s not about me and it’s not even about you, ultimately it’s about us.
