Being a coach, teacher, artist, speaker, healer or trainer is challenging.
It asks you to be fully vulnerable while YOU become your product.
It asks you to market yourself and all of your brilliance, talents, skills, experiences, knowledge.
It asks you to take the risk of guiding others when you don’t have a crystal ball and don’t for sure know any outcomes.
It asks you to show up in your expertise, relying mostly on yourself, because even though you can get certified as a coach, you can’t get a PhD in it.
It asks you to trust your expertise, even when you know you aren’t perfect.
It asks you to be seen.
It asks you to keep on going, even when there are the inevitable folks who don’t resonate with you or even like you.
It asks you to create boundaries so that you don’t over-give or take over-responsibility.
It asks you to continue loving yourself even when not every client achieves the goals they want.
And yet, for all these challenges, I love this profession.
I love it with my heart and soul, because it’s enabled me to activate my brilliances and use them to support others.
I love this profession, because it’s helped me be part of healing the world.
I love this profession, because it’s enabled me to trust myself and my intuition.
I love this profession, because it’s showed me how to break free of limited thinking.
I love this profession, because it’s forced me to learn to love myself more and more every day.
And I love this profession, because I feel so alive when I am serving and supporting my beloved clients.
Coaching, teaching and healing are not for the meek or the faint-hearted. There is risk, especially for those of us that are breaking boundaries and leading our clients to deep, sacred places.
But it is oh, so worth it.
I honor every person who dares to step into this beautiful, exalting, messy, risky life’s work.
You are inspiring.
You are brave.
Don’t ever give up your Sacred Work — not because of criticism, not because of rejection, not because of fear.
The more you own it, the more you grow your business, the more you will grow your Sacred Self.
(And of course it would be my honor to help you attract more clients for your Sacred Work – just let me know and we’ll set a time to speak). You can apply here.
