Someone told me the other day that they didn’t know if coaching would be worth the “risk.” It made me stop to evaluate what exactly I was “risking” when I first started this business.
THE RISK: Three years ago when I decided to start coaching, I could look into my future and see a pretty bumpy road ahead.
We had substantial student loan debt. We were already swiping our debit card and holding our breath each month. And we were constantly fighting about money.
I was tied to a career where I needed years of experience or an advanced degree to move forward. And, Ben was tied to a job that was going to make him work on-call hours the rest of his life, PLUS 60- to 80-hour work weeks.
I was also insecure, hated my body, and I never felt good enough in almost every aspect of life. I was faking it.
So, what was the real risk when I was presented with the opportunity to coach in 2014? The risk was staying RIGHT WHERE I WAS in 2014. The risk was that if I did nothing, our lives were going to be the same (OR WORSE) in 3-5 years. So, I put a $160 into a fitness program, which also equaled our business investment, on my credit card.
I talk to women every single day who are living the same type of life that I was in 2014 – insecure, lacking passion, broke as a joke, tied to a job that is going no where fast. I INSTANTLY GET SAD FOR THEM.
Life doesn’t have to be lived that way. Yes, it will take real work, but what’s the alternative? You keep wondering? You keep pushing the limit on your credit card while praying your car doesn’t break down or your heater doesn’t go out? Or more importantly, you keep feeling like “THIS IS IT?!” in life every day after work? You keep feeling like you aren't making the impact that you know you are capable of making?
That was my old life. That was my old risk.
That’s all different now because of a REFUNDABLE-I-WOULD-HAVE-DONE-IT-ANYWAY purchase of a workout program this is STILL rocking my body 3 years later.
I’ve been doing this little business from home for 3 years now. I made my investment of $160 for a tasty shake and a workout program back multiple times over.
Most business owners can only hope that this happens in the first 10 years - let alone 3 years. THAT IS MIND BLOWING. So when people say they can’t because it’s too risky, it fires me up.
WHAT IS YOUR RISK? Really - ask yourself? What type of life are you living now and could it be MORE? Could you do more? Be more free? Feel more alive?
Because in reality, you can’t afford NOT to have this perspective.
