5 Ways to Get More Out of Your Belief Clearing and Reality Creation Coaching Sessions
1. Choose The Right Coach for You
Any good coach will offer a free consultation. Unless that coach is a celebrity like a famous author or professional speaker. In that case, they will probably have way too much demand on their time to be able to give free sessions to prospective clients. But, their books, videos or audio programs are usually enough to make a decision.
I don’t have any published books, nor am I professional speaker (yet), so I do have the time for now and I actually enjoy the free sessions. It’s a way to meet new people and be sure that its a good fit and that the work I do can really help or not.
Personally, I would not hire a professional speaker as a coach, unless I wanted to learn his or her specific skillset around speaking. When I started out as a professional coach I had the chance to work with some pro speakers, and they’re great on stage but seldom great sitting across from you in a 1 to 1 setting. I also think there is merit in working with an introvert instead of an extrovert when doing deep inner work. I suppose it’s about what YOU NEED to get out of coaching.
I would highly encourage you to spend some time researching any prospective coach because you must be able to relax and feel comfortable working with them, and trust their judgement too. Ideally, you need to have this done before you get into the coaching relationship to avoid disappointment.
2. Have Clear and Well Defined Expectations
Clarity is power, and that is absolutely true when you’re working with a coach and expecting to see results.
I recommend that you write a list of all the things in your life that are not working the way you want, and and then pick 1 or 2 that you will focus on.
It’s very important that you know what the ideal outcome will look like, so you know when you achieved the results you were looking for.
It’s quite frustrating for the coach and for you if the goalposts keep moving. So get clear, get it well defined, and if it changes, speak to your coach about that.
3. Go All-in on Commitment
You will get more out of coaching when have committed to making the change. Something I learnt from Tony Robbins is that he only accepts private clients that must change, RIGHT NOW and be able to afford $1,000,000 a year too.
I don’t charge anywhere near that just yet, but the purpose of the high price and the commitment is leverage. Nobody wants to lose a million bucks because they were uncommitted.
There will be some work hard and courage required to make the changes and get the results you want.
My particular coaching methods are geared towards rapid personal change and the timeframe is anything from 1 to 4 months in most most cases, but you should be prepared to stick with it until you succeed. I have had some clients continue on and off for several years, and that works for them. The results definitely are worth it.
Commitment also includes being coachable, open and willing to trust your coach’s recommendations and ideas.
4. Arrive prepared and on time
Good luck is preparation plus opportunity. When you do some work on your own time and arrive with feedback, homework done, or something to contribute to the session, you will be get more out of your coaching experience. This includes showing up on time and not cancelling sessions unless it is truly unavoidable. Respect the coaching relationship and remember the reason that you engaged with your coach to begin with.
5. Be Sessionable
This is seldom discussed or recommended but it is so very important if you want to get more out of your coaching sessions. What does it mean?
To be sessionable means to be physically and mentally in a good space. When I go in session with my coach, the day before I will abstain from any alcohol or anything that could affect my mind or sleep.
I make sure I get enough sleep and I will usually get in some exercise too, like a short run about an hour before the session. A good meal that is high in protein and fat, and low in carbs works well for me. And plenty of water too. And a good strong multivitamin.
Being well fed and hydrated, and not tired with a fresh mind has always worked wonders for my sessions, and I recommend that my clients do the same.
I will also meditate before the session so that I am clear and fresh. And then just before the session starts, I’ll brew a nice cup of coffee. That’s been my routine for 20 years and it’s never failed me.
And there you have it; my 5 ways to get the most out of your coaching sessions.
