The following poem, written by Jessie B. Rittenhouse, sums up a challenge that I’ve seen many life coaches experience.

“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”

Those who feel drawn to life coaching have a desire to serve clients, make a difference in the lives of others and build a thriving business.

But often, many life coaches experience frustration that, despite their best efforts, they aren’t able to attract the ideal clients they desire, or the potential clients they speak to don’t feel compelled to say “YES” to investing in a program with them.

What may surprise them is that there is a correlation between these results and their own self-worth.

Let me explain…

I recently heard a short anecdote from a life coach, who is also a mother. Seeing her daughter cutting up a watermelon in the kitchen, the mother said “Wow, that looks delicious! Can I have some? I’ll just take one of the end pieces, so that you can enjoy the juicy center pieces, which are the best ones.”

The daughter said, “Don’t be silly, Mom. Take one of the good pieces.”

But the mother refused. “No,” she said, “You can enjoy those, I’ll just take one of those less desirable end bits. That’s good enough for me.”

The daughter then said, “You know, Mom, this is probably why your life coaching business isn’t taking off.”

Stunned, the mother said, “What do you mean?”

“Well, life isn’t compartmentalized. Your pattern in one area of your life likely reflects how you act in all areas of your life,” said the daughter. “I offered you the opportunity to have one of the best pieces of watermelon, and — even though I know it’s something you would love, and there’s plenty of juicy center pieces to go around — you refused it.”

The daughter continued: “We attract what we are. If you don’t feel worthy of saying ‘YES’ to the best that life has to offer, how can you expect your clients to? Why would they say ‘YES’ to working with you to create a life filled with what they would love, when they don’t see you doing the same?”

AN “A-HA” MOMENT

Like the mother in this story, you may be having an “A-Ha!” moment right about now too. And that is why I want to ask you two questions:

  1. Do you believe you are worthy of enjoying all of the wonderful things that life has to offer?
  2. Do you believe you are 100% deserving of living a life you love?

It’s important that you believe you are worthy to enjoy the goodness of life if you desire to attract clients who are looking for, and willing to invest in, working with a life coach to create inspiring, expansive new possibilities in their lives.

If you want to make a difference in the lives of others, build a successful coaching business, and set a good example for your clients, your friends, and your family… LOVE YOURSELF.

  7. Ariel Phoenix says:

    Someone once said,
    “If one settles for less than one deserves, one will wind up settling for even LESS than one settled for.” A-HA! I get it!
    The limitless universe provides what one asks for – in the very measure one asks of it.
    If the measure of self-worth is potentiated by the value you amplify in others’ lives, it behooves one to grab one’s full potential and the opulent bounty available for the asking.
    Why wait? Time is precious.
    ‘NOW’ is the only point of power You Have to pour your entire heart-mind-body & soul into your vision…one that gets results.
    That’s why it IS The Present… and You are the Gift that keeps giving to the world.
    This is where one person can make a lasting impact; make the world a better place.
    But it starts with YOU.ME.All of US who feel that ‘calling to serve the greatest good.’
    THAT, as Ganghi said, is:
    “BEing the change you wish to see in the world.”
    What a beautiful legacy to Life!

  16. Reva says:

    I’m extremely excited about becoming a certified coach. I’ve enjoyed helping other all my life. It’s a gift, a blessings. I took a job with a Telecommunication Company many years ago as an Assistant and worked myself to the top of that job. Then Quickly changed over within the same company and took a stepping stone job to get me where I wanted to go. Within a year, I was in customer service as a service representative. I loved it. I normally was the top service person and got the top promotion percentage. I never thought I would make what I made when I started out with that company. I was very blessed. I know I’m good with people. Plus, friends referred to me as their counselor and as take charge person. I’ve had a desire for a very long time that I would like to be coaching others. I know I will be excellent helping and coaching others. I’m a little rusty at this time since I got married 12 years ago, quit my job to make my husband happy. But I realized quickly I couldn’t make him or anyone happy if they didn’t want to be happy. I’m ready to rehone some things I haven’t been exposed to in the last 12 years as well as I’m ready to learn, to grow, to expand, to become a coach, to help others live a better live, to live a better life than I have lived for the last 12 years. Yes, I’m still married and sincere I attend the DreamBuilder Live in Los Angeles in January of this year, I have been really listening to my intuition which has been drowned out under the stress of life for sometime. My intuition has led me to ask my husband a question that has helped in our connection in having a better relationship. I’ve helped him to become a better man. He actually told me that two years ago. I’m ready to become the very best coach I can. Thank you for your re-enforcement and helping me to take my life back completely.
