Do you know why many people feel so inspired by the thought of becoming a heart-centered life coach?
In my experience, it comes down to the nature of the coaching relationship: that you become a walking success story because you have the opportunity to help other people create their success stories… every single day.
The coach-client relationship requires you to bring your best as a life coach, and your best will depend on how you structure your business – and also on the system you use to create transformation in your client’s life.
Life Coaching Success Begins with Choosing the RIGHT Coaching Certification Program
Your success as a mentor rests on the life coach certification program that you choose.
When you review the various coaching certification programs out there, you will want to find out several things:
- Verify if the program you are considering has a solid track record for creating successful coaches.
- Look for a program led by someone who can demonstrate that they’ve helped many people create successful life-coaching businesses. If the only success this person can point to is their own, start looking elsewhere.
- You also want to choose a coaching certification program that will give you everything you need to serve your client and scale your business.
Early in my life, I was taught that everything is created twice… once in thought, and then in reality. After 40 years of study, I’ve found that every single person can experience a transformation when they apply specific tools available to anyone, but often unlearned.
Building a successful, sustainable coaching business relies on the consistent success of your clients.
Look for a program that can give you access to a proven, reliable and repeatable system of transformation for your clients AND a step-by-step business model that you can follow to grow your business. The latter is what I call an “economic engine.”
Plenty of coaching certification programs can teach you how to coach clients, but in order for you to be successful, you also need access to proven tools, training and systems that will help you attract and enroll clients and generate income.
Lastly, look for a coaching certification program led by someone whose worldview matches your own. You want someone who actually cares about you and your success – someone who is willing to teach you and work with you to master a system of transformation.
To review, be sure to look for a coaching certification program that meets all of these three criteria:
- It has a solid track record for creating successful life coaches
- It gives you access to a proven, reliable and repeatable system of transformation for your clients AND a step-by-step business model that you can follow to attract clients and grow your business
- It’s led by someone whose worldview matches your own
And here’s a bonus tip: If you want to become a life-coaching success story, one of the most important things you can do is expand your own belief that it is possible for you to achieve the success that you desire.
Take a moment to read this inspiring story from Stacy Berger, one of Life Mastery Institute’s certified life coaches, about her own journey to success.
A Taste of the Possibilities: Stacy’s Life Coaching Success Story
“About three years ago, I woke up one morning and realized that I didn’t want to go to work. That was unusual for me, because I was normally one of those people that actually jumped out of bed in the morning… I loved my job! But in that moment, I realized I was ready for a change. There was something more seeking to emerge within me, and while I wasn’t exactly sure what that was… but I definitely felt that longing.
In 2014, I discovered Mary Morrissey’s DreamBuilder™ Coaching Certification Program, and it didn’t take me long to realize that this is what I really wanted to do. I wanted to combine my passions for business and spiritual development. So I quickly said “YES!” to becoming certified as a DreamBuilder coach.
So where am I today versus one year ago? During the past 12 months, I have delivered 27 different public talks and vision workshops, to a combined audience of over 400 people. I exceeded my six-figure earning goal, which was the intention I set a year ago. As of today, my revenue for the past 12 months has been $107,000. I am so excited that I was able to accomplish this!
But more than all of these things, I get to walk my daughter to the school bus every morning now, I get to volunteer at my son’s playschool, and I get to watch people transform in their lives. It’s just been this incredible journey. I am so grateful for all of the support that I’ve received from the Life Mastery™ Institute faculty.”
This is just one way success can look. How does success look for you? I know Stacy’s story has inspired many others to imagine the possibilities for themselves. I hope it has helped you to do the same.
Once you decide that this is what you want out of life, you’ll have much more focus and drive to accomplish your goal.
As I shared at the beginning of this article, life coaching aligns your success with your client’s success. You’ll attract people who want to achieve the same goals you’re striving for: freedom, opportunity and more income. The bond between you and your clients will help you help them create change, and will result in a thriving business that creates an abundance of both wealth and success in your life.
